Notable New Book Releases | Jan. 8 - Jan. 14

These are the new releases that caught my eye this week. What did I miss? Be sure to tell me what you what books you were excited about this week!

Blemish by Joe McKinney
Publication Date: January 8, 2012

[Joe McKinney has published a new horror anthology The Red Empire. You can get Blemish - a story from that anthology - free on Amazon through this weekend.]

It’s people who are haunted. The ghosts are as real as our guilt and shame make them.

Part love story, part ghost story, part parable of the redemption of modern man, Blemish is the tale of two lovers who, for seventeen long years, chased each other through a nightmare world of violence and guilt and death.
One of the eight tales in Joe McKinney’s debut collection of horror and dark crime stories, “Blemish” is a prime example of why the New York Times Bestselling author Jonathan Maberry called him “the most original voice in modern horror.”

Gideon's Corpse by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
Publication Date: January 10, 2012

[The second book in Preston/Child's Gideon Crew series. Read my review of book 1, Gideon's Sword, here.]

A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.

A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.

Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon.

A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Publication Date: January 10, 2012

[I'm currently reading Across the Universe. A Million Suns is book two.]

Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
