The Vine Witch (The Vine Witch #1)
by Luanne G. Smith

Historical Fantasy

The Vine Witch coverA young witch emerges from a curse to find her world upended in this gripping fantasy of betrayal, vengeance, and self-discovery set in turn-of-the-century France.

For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.

Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley..

Angel Mage
by Garth Nix

Young Adult, Epic Fantasy

Angel Mage coverMore than a century has passed since Liliath crept into the empty sarcophagus of Saint Marguerite, fleeing the Fall of Ystara. But she emerges from her magical sleep still beautiful, looking no more than nineteen, and once again renews her single-minded quest to be united with her lover, Palleniel, the archangel of Ystara.

A seemingly impossible quest, but Liliath is one of the greatest practitioners of angelic magic to have ever lived, summoning angels and forcing them to do her bidding.

Liliath knew that most of the inhabitants of Ystara died from the Ash Blood plague or were transformed into beastlings, and she herself led the survivors who fled into neighboring Sarance. Now she learns that angels shun the Ystaran’s descendants. If they are touched by angelic magic, their blood will turn to ash. They are known as Refusers, and can only live the most lowly lives.

But Liliath cares nothing for the descendants of her people, save how they can serve her. It is four young Sarancians who hold her interest: Simeon, a studious doctor-in-training; Henri, a dedicated fortune hunter; Agnez, an adventurous musketeer cadet; and Dorotea, an icon-maker and scholar of angelic magic. They are the key to her quest.

The four feel a strange kinship from the moment they meet, but do not know why, or suspect their importance. All become pawns in Liliath’s grand scheme to fulfill her destiny and be united with the love of her life. No matter the cost to everyone else. . .

She is tasked with capturing the legendary rebel called the Shadowfox, but everything changes when she learns her target’s true identity.

Darvyn ol-Tahlyro may be the most powerful Earthsinger in generations, but guilt over those he couldn’t save tortures him daily. He isn’t sure he can trust the mysterious young woman who claims to need his help, but when he discovers Kyara can unlock the secrets of his past, he can’t stay away.

Kyara and Darvyn grapple with betrayal, old promises, and older prophecies—all while trying to stop a war. And when a new threat emerges, they must beat the odds to save both kingdoms.

Then Kara Hallas moves in across the street with her mother and grandmother, and Olivia is immediately drawn to these three generations of women.

by Coco Ma

Shadow Frost coverIN THE KINGDOM OF AXARIA, a darkness rises.

Some call it a monster, laying waste to the villagers and their homes.
Some say it is an invulnerable demon summoned from the deepest abysses of the Immortal Realm.
Many soldiers from the royal guard are sent out to hunt it down.

Not one has ever returned.

When Asterin Faelenhart, Princess of Axaria and heir to the throne, discovers that she may hold the key to defeating the mysterious demon terrorizing her kingdom, she vows not to rest until the beast is slain. With the help of her friends and the powers she wields — though has yet to fully understand — Asterin sets out to complete a single task. The task that countless, trained soldiers have failed.

To kill it.

But as they hunt for the demon, they unearth a plot to assassinate the Princess herself instead. Asterin and her companions begin to wonder how much of their lives have been lies, especially when they realize that the center of the web of deceit might very well be themselves. With no one else to turn to, they are forced to decide just how much they are willing to sacrifice to protect the only world they have ever known.

That is, of course… if the demon doesn’t get to them first.

From young author Coco Ma comes a dazzling new tale of adventure, power, and betrayal, weaving together a stunning world of magic with a killer cast in an explosive, unforgettable debut.

by Alexandra Christo

Young Adult, Dark Fantasy

INTO_THE_CROOKED_PLACE6Into the Crooked Place begins a gritty two-book YA fantasy series from Alexandra Christo, the author of To Kill a Kingdom.

The streets of Creije are for the deadly and the dreamers, and four crooks in particular know just how much magic they need up their sleeve to survive.

Tavia, a busker ready to pack up her dark-magic wares and turn her back on Creije for good. She’ll do anything to put her crimes behind her.

Wesley, the closest thing Creije has to a gangster. After growing up on streets hungry enough to swallow the weak whole, he won’t stop until he has brought the entire realm to kneel before him.

Karam, a warrior who spends her days watching over the city’s worst criminals and her nights in the fighting rings, making a deadly name for herself.

And Saxony, a resistance fighter hiding from the very people who destroyed her family, and willing to do whatever it takes to get her revenge.

Everything in their lives is going to plan, until Tavia makes a crucial mistake: she delivers a vial of dark magic—a weapon she didn’t know she had—to someone she cares about, sparking the greatest conflict in decades. Now these four magical outsiders must come together to save their home and the world, before it’s too late. But with enemies at all sides, they can trust nobody. Least of all each other.

The Beautiful (The Beautiful #1)
by Renee Adieh
Young Adult, Historical Fantasy

The Beautiful coverNew York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns with a sumptuous, sultry and romantic new series set in 19th century New Orleans where vampires hide in plain sight.

In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans provides her a refuge after she’s forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent along with six other girls, Celine quickly becomes enamored with the vibrant city from the music to the food to the soirées and—especially—to the danger. She soon becomes embroiled in the city’s glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group’s leader, the enigmatic Sébastien Saint Germain. When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in the lair of La Cour des Lions, Celine battles her attraction to him and suspicions about Sébastien’s guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret.

When more bodies are discovered, each crime more gruesome than the last, Celine and New Orleans become gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose—one Celine is sure has set her in his sights . . . and who may even be the young man who has stolen her heart. As the murders continue to go unsolved, Celine takes matters into her own hands and soon uncovers something even more shocking: an age-old feud from the darkest creatures of the underworld reveals a truth about Celine she always suspected simmered just beneath the surface.

At once a sultry romance and a thrilling murder mystery, master storyteller Renée Ahdieh embarks on her most potent fantasy series yet: The Beautiful.

by Rosaria Munda

Young Adult, Fantasy
Debut Author

Fireborne coverGame of Thrones meets Red Rising in a debut young adult fantasy that’s full of rivalry, romance… and dragons.

Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone—even the lowborn—a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders.

Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn’t be more different. Annie’s lowborn family was executed by dragonfire, while Lee’s aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet.

But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.

From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you’ve chosen.

The start of a fierce fantasy duology about three maidens who are chosen for their land’s greatest honor…and one girl determined to save her sister from the grave.

In the walled city-state of Alu, Kammani wants nothing more than to become the accomplished healer her father used to be before her family was cast out of their privileged life in shame.

When Alu’s ruler falls deathly ill, Kammani’s beautiful little sister, Nanaea, is chosen as one of three sacred maidens to join him in the afterlife. It’s an honor. A tradition. And Nanaea believes it is her chance to live an even grander life than the one that was stolen from her.

But Kammani sees the selection for what it really is—a death sentence.

Desperate to save her sister, Kammani schemes her way into the palace to heal the ruler. There she discovers more danger lurking in the sand-stone corridors than she could have ever imagined and that her own life—and heart—are at stake. But Kammani will stop at nothing to dig up the palace’s buried secrets even if it means sacrificing everything…including herself.

Beyond the Black Door
by A.M. Strickland
Young Adult, Dark Fantasy

Beyond the Black Door coverKamai was warned never to open the black door, but she didn’t listen …

Everyone has a soul. Some are beautiful gardens, others are frightening dungeons. Soulwalkers―like Kamai and her mother―can journey into other people’s souls while they sleep.

But no matter where Kamai visits, she sees the black door. It follows her into every soul, and her mother has told her to never, ever open it.

When Kamai touches the door, it is warm and beating, like it has a pulse. When she puts her ear to it, she hears her own name whispered from the other side. And when tragedy strikes, Kamai does the unthinkable: she opens the door.

A.M. Strickland’s imaginative dark fantasy features court intrigue and romance, a main character coming to terms with her asexuality, and twists and turns as a seductive mystery unfolds that endangers not just Kamai’s own soul, but the entire kingdom …

          I have no other way to tell you this (can’t DM on twitter), but I haven’t ever been able to comment on your blog. I get this super weird thing whenever I press the submit button

          as far as I remember, it happened before I went self-hosted. But who knows tbh? Time is a construct I don’t understand lol

            Ooh noo 🙁
            I keep hearing this from other readers as well 🙁 but I can’t seem to figure out what is wrong..
            Thanks for trying though!

            I am sorry you’re having trouble, but I am really glad it isn’t just me because it’s been driving me CRAZY! Would it be worth switching to a different comment form? I think that CommentLuv might have a free lite version of the plugin.

            At any rate, please know I am not ignoring you on purpose! xoxo

            Huh.. that’s weird.. I’ve tried, but can’t find anything, should try again!
            I kinda gave up at some point haha, but it is so stupid to put in the effort and then people can’t comment..

            October 5, 2019 at 11:41 AM

            I’m so sorry, hopefully you can figure it out! I hope you don’t mind me trying to help, I just know I would be so devastated if people weren’t able to comment on my blog! (I was devastated, actually!)

            I had some weird shit happening with some visitors that was a result of a Jetpack plugin setting. IDK if you have it enabled or not, but perhaps try turning this off in the Discussion settings: “Let visitors use a WordPress.com, Twitter, Facebook, or Google account to comment.”

Once I get my books back in the shelves, I might do an unhaul and that might help stop me from buying every damn thing that sounds remotely interesting.

    SO SO MANY good picks! I think we should’ve all just have holed ourselves up in a mountain retreat for all of September and October and had big group read alongs to choose from for different books.

    Some other October releases coming that I’ve got on my ARC list are Lifestyles of Gods and Monsters, Now Entering Adamsville, Hex, In the Hall with The Knife (if you love Clue- I reviewed already but its so much fun!), What Makes Us, Good Luck Girls and I know I’m missing something because October is just a mess of goodness!

    Here’s to hoping they are all fantastic reads!

    Oh and Ninth House and Kingdom for a Stage… but ARCless on that front lol

      October 3, 2019 at 5:01 PM

      In the Hall with the Knife flew under my radar and I am ANGRY ABOUT IT! I love Clue so much, so I am going to check that one out — thanks for the recommendation! Happy reading to you with your ARC Mountain!

    I’m definitely eyeing The Beautiful since the book sounds perfect for the fall and is also written by one of my favorite YA authors. Also love that the story takes place in spooky New Orleans. How perfect is that?! *Runs to Netgalley to request ASAP.* Thanks so much for the heads up. I love that SO MANY AMAZING books publish in the fall. I’m stoked for fall reading; thanks for a great list to get me going.

      October 4, 2019 at 8:31 PM

      I agree with you on the New Orleans setting for The Beautiful! I read the sampler a couple of months ago, and the vibe was just PERFECT! I really want to go back to NOLA sometime soon and just hang out in graveyards. Happy reading, Christine!

    Crier’s War was SO GOOD. I gave it four stars, and I’m so happy that an f/f fantasy book is getting the hype it deserves! i’m actually so behind on my arcs for October, so the fact that these new releases that I don’t have arcs for are distracting me is bad haha. The cover of The Gravemaidens originally wasn’t enticing me very much, but the premise is so interesting! I’m also excited for The Beautiful because I know from experience that Renee Ahdieh can write romance and descriptions like no other. Also, I just recently read your interview with Rosiee Thor, and it made me doubly excited for Tarnished Are the Stars!

    1. Kal

      October 4, 2019 at 9:03 PM

      Your screaming about the book is a big reason that I wound up pre-order Crier’s War and I can’t WAIT for it to be in my hands! And yea, I hear you on being behind on arc reading. I had to abandon my mountain because I am burned out of SFF and that is literally ALL I HAVE ARCS FOR RIGHT NOW. I just need a month of spooky as a palate cleanse. We have so many exciting books to look forward to this month!

    KALEENA, YOU CAN’T KEEP DOING THIS TO ME!!! If I file for bankruptcy, I’m blaming you in full for convincing me to buy all of these! Haha. Jokes aside, I am so pumped for The Beautiful and Into the Crooked Place! I love both the authors so much, so my expectations are off the charts. I’m also quite excited to check out Firebourne when it releases! Wonderful list, Kal! <3

    1. Kal

      October 4, 2019 at 9:06 PM

      I’M SORRY! But really, we should be blaming the publishers for not spacing out their books better! I am sosososo excited for the Beautiful and plan on picking up my copy as soon as the store opens on Tuesday. I really enjoyed the sampler I read for Fireborne and am looking forward to reading my arc of it when I’m in the mood for fantasy again.

    Quite a few of these are on my TBR! Can’t wait to read Into the Crooked Place and Crier’s War. I just recently discovered The Vine Witch and that one seems interesting! Great list 🙂

      Thank you so much, and my copy of Crier’s War arrived today and it is so damn beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.
