New Arrivals

This week I received a great collection of books for review.

First up is Manhattan in Reverse by Peter F Hamilton. This is a collection of short stories by my favourite space opera author. The photo doesn't do the cover justice. Both the title and author name is embossed, which gives it a nice 3D look and works very well with the futuristic artwork.

The second book I received is Heirs of the Blade by Adrian Tchaikovsky. The cover is simply amazing. I love the covers Jon Sullivan did for Neal Asher's books and it seems he's just as adapt at creating stunning artwork for a fantasy series. Unfortunately I haven't read any of the other books in the Shadows of the Apt series so it's going to be quite some time before I can get to this one. I have a lot of catching up to do.

A huge thanks to Kelly from Pan Macmillan SA for sending these to me.

The second batch of books I got consists of a reissue edition of Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, a very shiny hardcover edition of The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore and Hell Ship by Philip Palmer.
Thanks to Adeline from Penguin Books SA.

I'm in absolute book heaven right now. So if you guys don't hear from me for a couple of weeks you'll know the reason why!

  1. Huzzah! Awesome looking collection KJ - Heirs of The Blade looks especially intriguing (although that may be the cover slut in me reacting to the picture... ;) ).

    Happy Reading!
