New Releases: May 22

Posted May 22, 2012 by Carmel in / 7 Comments


I have my eye on two books that are releasing today: Shadow Bound (which I pre-ordered) by Rachel Vincent and Taken by Storm by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I read Blood Bound (My Review) last October and fell head-over-heels in love with Vincent’s new Urban Fantasy series. You really must try this series if you haven’t yet. I highly recommend it! As for Barnes’ novel, admittedly the first book in this series has been sitting on my shelf since Christmas but it’s a werewolf book so I will get to it eventually!

What about you? Have any of these beauties caught your eye?

  1. @Nicola Oh yes, you must jump on this series! I just finished the second one yesterday. It wasn’t quite as awesome as the first but still enjoyable.

  2. I have Shadow Bound (LOVED the 1st book-one of my favorites of 2011), Taken by Storm (great series), Lethal Rider (can’t wait!), & Fated coming to me in the mail. So many great books coming out in May 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed Nightshifted, and I’m now curious to read the second one. I need to try Poseidon as well, I keep hearing great things about it.
