Three preview copies landed on the doormat of The BlogCave just before Christmas. Each looks to be a promising read so here's some details
I enjoy Sci-Fi and I enjoy Crime Fiction so I guess I'm doubly looking forward to this.
Next up, (8/2/18 Gollancz) is The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton.
From the press release:
'In the opulent world of Orléans, the people are born grey and Damned, and only a Belle's powers can make them beautiful. Camellia Beauregard wants to be the favourite Belle - the one chosen by the Queen to tend to the royal family.
But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favourite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that her powers may be far greater - and far darker - than she ever imagined'
This may be slightly out of my comfort zone but there's something intriguing about The Belles. I think I'm going to enjoy this.
Finally, for today, One Way by S J Morden (Ebook, Export and Audio April 2018, Paperback August 2018). A base needs to be built on Mars, ready for the arrival of NASA astronauts. It has to be manually constructed and it's decided 8 prisoners from Earth, 8 people who won't be missed, are offered a one way trip to the red planet. On arrival though, someone starts bumping off them off.
A whodunit set on Mars? I'm in 😉
So, there you go, three upcoming titles to whet your appetite. Happy reading
