Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday! Today we celebrate:
A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab
A February 2015 LibraryReads pick! “Schwab creates an ingenious set of nesting alternate Londons in this imaginative, well-crafted fantasy… Confident prose and marvelous touches-a chameleon coat, a scarlet river of magic, a piratical antiheroine-bring exuberant life to an exhilarating adventure among the worlds.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
EMPIRE RISING by Rick Campbell
After a decade-long secret military build-up, China launches a sneak attack on the U.S. Pacific fleet in this page-turning sequel to THE TRIDENT DECEPTION. “The story rockets around the globe, and the pages cannot turn fast enough. The characters are just as intriguing as the shiny tech, and Campbell’s expertise in the navy from his years in service adds a realistic feel to the proceedings. Readers who miss Clancy will be eager to devour Campbell.” — Booklist
