New Book Tuesday

While Friday may still be the best day of the week, Tuesday is a very close second.  Every Tuesday welcomes the release of new books into the world.  For an author, it's like having a baby and sending that child off to college all at the same time.  It's exciting and nerve-wracking and so wonderful. 

For today's new release day, I want to highlight the release of Rachel Vincent's newest book, Shadow Bound.  This is the second book in her Unbound series.  I will admit that I haven't read this series yet, but she is a fantastic writer.  I loved her Shifter series.  For the curious, here is a description of the Shadow Bound:

If you live in the dark long enough, you begin to forget the light…

KORI DANIELS is a shadow-walker, able to travel instantly from one shadow to another. After weeks of confinement for betraying her boss, she’s ready to break free of the Tower syndicate for good. But Jake Tower has one final job for Kori, one chance to secure freedom for herself and her sister, Kenley, even if that means taking it from someone else…

The job? Recruit Ian Holt—or kill him.

Ian’s ability to manipulate the dark has drawn interest from every syndicate in the world, most notably an invitation from Jake Tower. Though he has no interest in organized crime, Ian accepts the invite, because he’s on a mission of his own.

Ian has come to kill Tower’s top Binder: Kori’s little sister.
Amid the tangle of lies, an unexpected thread of truth connecting Ian and Kori comes to light. But with opposing goals, they’ll have to choose between love and liberty….

But wait!  That's the SECOND book in the series.  Would you like info on the first?  Here's the description of the first book in the series, Blood Bound:

By blood, by word, by magic…

Most can’t touch the power. But Liv Warren is special—a paranormal tracker who follows the scent of blood.

Liv makes her own rules, and the most important one is trust no one.

But when her friend’s daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath, Liv can’t rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.

Bound by oath and lost in desire for a man she cannot have, Liv is racing to save the child from a dark criminal underworld where secrets, lies, trauma, and danger lurk around every corner…every touch…every kiss.

And more blood will be spilled before it’s over….

Sounds awesome, right?  Yeah, they are on my TO-BE-READ list and I'm hoping to start them after I finish my next project.  I think you should give these books a try. 

Also, if  you're looking for some more new releases to add to your stack of books to read, then you should pop over to Literary Escapism to see the list of urban fantasy/paranormal books that are hitting shelves and e-readers today.  Have a great reading day!
