happy release day!

Shalador's Lady, the latest book in Anne Bishop's Black Jewels series, officially out today.

For years the Shalador people suffered the cruelties of the corrupt Queens who ruled them, forbidding their traditions, punishing those who dared show defiance, and forcing many more into hiding. Now that their land has been cleansed of tainted Blood, the Rose-Jeweled Queen, Lady Cassidy, makes it her duty to restore it and prove her ability to rule. But even if Lady Cassidy succeeds, other dangers await. For the Black Widows see visions within their tangled webs that something is coming that will change the land-and Lady Cassidy-forever...

Now in mass market: The Shadow Queen.




Also in mass market today: Jim Butcher's Turncoat, the 11th book in the Dresden Files series. The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council—and there's only one final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden... Now, Harry must uncover a traitor within the Council, keep a less-than-agreeable Morgan under wraps, and avoid coming under scrutiny himself. And a single mistake may cost someone his head—someone like Harry.

And coming in April, the aptly titled Changes (Dresden Files, Book 12). Read the first chapter here.
