Book Haul – August 2016

This month we’ve bought 6 books.

DEMIGODS AND MAGICIANS: Three Stories from the World of Percy Jackson and the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Join Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase and Carter and Sadie Kane as they do battle with an ancient Egyptian magician determined to become a god.

Against impossible odds, the four demigods and magicians team up to prevent the apocalypse.

Contains the short stories The Son of Sobek, The Staff of Serapis and The Crown of Ptolemy, together in one volume for the first time.

Plus, read an exciting extract from The Sword of Summer, the first book in Rick Riordan’s latest series Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard.

REASON FOR BUYING:
Honestly, Rick Riordan is our must-buy author. We have most of his books and every time we see a book of his that we do not have, we buy it immediately. Same thing happened here.

DEITY by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

History is on repeat, and things didn’t go so well the last time.

Alexandria isn’t sure she’s going to make it to her eighteenth birthday–to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she’s a goner… and so is Aiden.

If that’s not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time “training”–which really is just Seth’s code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time–she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she’s caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed… and destroyed.

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate…

REASON FOR BUYING:
This summer I’ve read Half-Blood and Pure. If you’ve read these books, you know that buying the rest of the series was a no brainer. Especially, because I have to know what happens next. I have to know NOW.

APOLLYON by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.

REASON FOR BUYING:
Same as Deity.

SENTINEL by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It’s a beautiful day for a war.

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.

And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

REASON FOR BUYING:
Same as Deity.

THE SURGEON by Tess Gerritsen

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

IN BOSTON, THERE’S A KILLER ON THE LOOSE…

A killer who targets lone women, who breaks into their apartments and performs terrifying ritualistic acts of torture on them before finishing them off. His surgical skills lead police to suspect he is a physician – a physician who, instead of saving lives, takes them.

But as homicide detective Thomas Moore and his partner Jane Rizzoli begin their investigation, they make a startling discovery. Closely linked to these killings is Catherine Cordell, a beautiful doctor with a mysterious past. Two years ago she was subjected to a horrifying rape and shot her attacker dead.

Now the man she believes she killed seems to be stalking her once again, and this time he knows exactly where to find her…

REASON FOR BUYING:
I love Tess Geritsen and have read a couple of her books before. I had to buy this book because it had a 70% discount.

KEEPING THE DEAD by Tess Gerritsen

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

HE HIDES, HE KILLS, HE KEEPS . . .

Forensic Pathologist Maura Isles is asked to attend an intriguing examination. An ancient mummy has been found in a museum basement, prompting great media excitement. But with horror she realises that it’s not as ancient as they thought…A very modern bullet is showing up on the scan.

Detective Jane Rizzoli is called to investigate and soon discovers a second – and then a third – mummified body. Who is this killer and why does he preserve his victims so meticulously?

And who will be the next to join his monstrous collection?

REASON FOR BUYING:
Same as The Surgeon.
