He Who Fights with Monsters #7 – Travis Deverell as Shirtaloon

Jason arrives at a kingdom in peril and he’s surprised to discover that it’s not his job to save it.

With the authorities fulfilling their responsibilities (for once), he looks forward to some quiet time to rest and recuperate.

The locals might not find ceaseless monster onslaughts and an inter-dimensional invasion relaxing, but Jason has had a rough few years. He’s doing his best to let go of his anger.

While his team is caught up in duty, Jason has no shortage of people looking to interfere with his rest. Enemies–old and new–are circling, and even would-be allies are trouble. A princess finds him inconveniently alive, an ancient king arrives at his barbecue, and the local Church of Fertility are uncomfortably enthusiastic about including him in their practices. As his friends strive to reach him from the far side of the world, they are all frustrated by obstacles.

Jason is finally back in the world he longed for, but he is not the same man he was when he left. As the pressure on him mounts, allies and enemies alike will find that out the hard way.


KTF: Part One (Galaxy’s Edge #17) – Jason Anspach and Nick Cole

The Savage Wars never ended.

As Kill Team Victory and General Chhun take control of the cities on Kima, a war every bit as spiritual as it is physical rages in the deepest parts of galaxy’s edge. The Legion, and the Republic military at large, struggle to deal with a sudden multitude of planetary invasions and uprisings — with rumors of mysterious ships breaking the peace achieved by Article Nineteen.

Meanwhile Captain Aeson Keel continues his search for Prisma, aided by friends from both his past and present. But only mankind’s oldest ally can hold back the tide of ultimate destruction. For an unknown darkness is closing in, and the Republic once again stands on the threshold of galactic war.


Mark of the Fool – J. M. Clarke

The gods chose him. He said no.

After his parents died, Alex Roth had one desire: become a wizard. Through hard work, he was accepted into the University of Generasi, the world’s greatest academy of wizardry…

Fate, however, had other plans.

On his eighteenth birthday, he is Marked by prophecy as one of his kingdom’s five Heroes, chosen to fight the Ravener, his land’s great enemy. But his brand is ‘The Fool’. Worst of the marks.

Rather than die or serve other Heroes like past Fools, he takes a stand, rejects divine decree…and leaves. With his little sister, his childhood friend, and her cerberus, Alex flees for the university, hoping to research the mystery of the Ravener. He’ll make lifelong friends, learn magic from mad wizards, practice alchemy, fight mana vampires and try to pay tuition.

There’s one small problem. The Mark insists on preventing the Fool from learning and casting spells, while enhancing skills outside of divinity, combat, and spellcraft…

…that is, unless he learns to exploit the hell out of it.


Northwest Passage (Drop Trooper: Birthright #3) – Rick Partlow

Former military super-commando Cal Mitchell is enjoying the pastoral life on his remote star colony home of Canaan, having put the fight against the Corporate Council behind him.

But his past comes back to haunt him when a hired assassin makes an attempt on his life. On the heels of this threat, his old friend and former partner Deke Conner and DSI agent Kara McIntire arrive to warn him of a new conspiracy by old enemies, and this time the stakes are no lower than the fate of the galaxy.

The hunt is on for the fabled Northwest Passage, the extra-dimensional pathway that will give its discoverer access to the rest of the universe…and perhaps to the magical technology of the long-lost Predecessors, an ancient race of aliens who left behind an incredible legacy of terraformed worlds and wormhole passages.

The quest for the Northwest Passage will take Caleb and his friends and family to the farthest reaches of the Commonwealth and beyond into the unknown, where the prize for success may be an even darker fate than the price of failure.


Not The Hill We Die On (The Frontiers Saga: Fringe Worlds #4) – Ryk Brown

A new threat on the horizon…

A new technology to employ…
An opportunity that can’t be ignored…

“Not the Hill to Die On” is the 4th episode in Part 3 of the Frontiers Saga: Fringe Worlds.


Perry Rhodan NEO #9 – Frank Borsch and Michelle Stern

With alien threats out of the way, a new day dawns for humanity. Tragic revelations are afoot, however, as Crest learns he has very little time left and is driven to resume his search for eternal life.

When he travels beyond reach, it’s up to Rhodan, Thora, and their team to look for him by using one of the transmitters. But this ancient technology works in mysterious ways. Instead of finding Crest, they emerge on a war-torn alien world with no hope, no compassion…and no way back.

Meanwhile, Mildred and Julian take Gucky, the alien Mousebeaver with both telepathic and telekinetic abilities, on a road trip across the USA. Their goal? To find Julian’s father, William Tifflor, who disappeared after defending Crest during his trial. With nefarious forces at play, it’s not long before Gucky is separated from his human companions…and finds himself unable to use his powers.

Dangers past and present are lurking around every corner as Earth’s heroes take their next step towards the stars.
