 November 11, 2017 is the 99th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I. The holiday is known as Veterans Day in the United States  and Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom and both current and former members of the Commonwealth.

Here are just a few of the new books that have arrived this week. My complete stack is over at Reading Reality.




War Games by Jess Anastasi
This is the fourth book in Jess Anastasi's Valiant Knox series. And it's science fiction romance for those who like their SFR to also be space operas. The Valiant Knox is a city in a spaceship, much like Babylon 5. But the setting is in the midst of an interstellar war, so it also reminds me more than a bit of Battlestar Galactic and Star Trek: Discovery. And it's one heck of a ride.



The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen
This one feels like it's the closest to being apropos for today, even though the war it follows is World War II rather than WW1. Based on the description, it feels like it might be a follow up to last year's marvelous In Fairleigh Field. And it looks like just as much of a treat as the previous book.


Cast in Deception by Michelle Sagara
Cast in Deception is the OMG 13th book in Sagara's epic Chronicles of Elantra series. The series follows the adventures of Private Kaylin Nera of the Elantra city guard, and on the surface it feels like urban fantasy set in an epic fantasy world. But as the series has continued, Kaylin has moved far from her roots as a street rat into the halls of power, however reluctantly on her part - and on the parts of those who occupy those halls. Reading the latest book in this series is one of my much looked forward to annual treats.

  3. Oh, The Tuscan Child sounds good, and right up my alley because I'm a big fan of WWII era books.

    Have a great weekend. - Katie
