Richelle Mead has post the description for the final Dark Swan novel, Shadow Heir, which is scheduled to be released January 3, 2012.
Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land’s prophecy-haunted queen, there’s no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born-children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld…
The spell-driven source of the blight isn’t the only challenge to Eugenie’s instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can’t trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can’t–or won’t–reveal. And as a formidable force rises to also threaten the human world, Eugenie must use her own cursed fate as a weapon–and risk the ultimate sacrifice…

For those of you in the UK, Angry Robot Books is doing a fabulous summer promotion and offering a bunch of their books for $.99. Book Chick City has a list, but some of those titles include Sixty-One Nails by Mike Shevdon and King Maker by Maurice Broaddus.
Blastr has gotten their hands on a few stills from the upcoming Captain America movie. For some reason, I never really associated Captain America as a war movie and I’m not one who normally likes those, but it does look interesting.
A bunch of authors and bloggers have gotten together for a charity auction to benefit LA Banks with her medical bills. There’s a ton of great stuff up for grabs and it goes to a worthy cause. I would head on over and check the items. Sadly, I’ve already been out bidded for the Authors After Dark 2012 Hotel Room in NOLA. Some other items up for grabs: set of Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampire series and Dark Elite series, set of The Signs of the Zodiac series, set of Angela Knight’s Mageverse Books and signed set of Lori Handeland’s Phoenix Chronicles.
Holy crap…Amazon just bought out the Book Depository. Hopefully that doesn’t mean that the free shipping online retailer will change it’s shipping policy, but one never knows.
