The Most Anticipated books for 2015

 The Most Anticipated Books  in 2015


The Red Queen: Obernewtyn (Book 7)

Author: Isobelle Carmody

$32.99 Due November

The time has come at last for Elspeth Gordie to leave the Land on her quest to find and stop the computermachine Sentinel from unleashing the deadly Balance of Terror arsenal. But before she can embark on her quest, she must find a lost key; and although she has long prepared for this day, nothing is as she imagined.

This is the final, dramatic volume in series of books that undoubtedly shines as one of the most fantastic, and fantastical, tapestries ever woven. If you haven’t read the books, now is the perfect time to catch up, because you’ll be able to devour each book one after the other, right until the end. The Farseekers, Ashling and The Keeping Place, which were all released a year at a time. Then it was an almost ten year wait until the fifth book, The Stone Key, appeared, then three more years waiting for The Sending in 2011. Patience was required for those who loved the series.  How, however,  you can have them all with no waiting.

"Rush Oh!" by Shirley Barratt

$32.99 Due September  

 I now can’t wait to read it. The intriguing title was the rallying cry of the whalers of Eden on the coast of NSW over one hundred years ago. The novel is set in 1908 and is based on the true story of the community’s unlikely relationship with a pod of Killer whales. During that period the whalers and the Killer whales hunted together and the Killer whales became a part of the community, each known by name and personality, most notably a beloved prankster called Tom.
It sounds fanciful, but isn’t that often the way with stories drawn from life? Barrett has taken this amazing historic episode of inter-species cooperation and friendship as the jumping-off point for what sounds like a dramatic and humorous story of a bad whaling season and a tight-knit village, told from the perspective of the eldest daughter of one of the whaling families.

"The Secret Chord" by Geraldine Brooks

$39.99 Due October

A unique and vivid novel that retells the story of King David's extraordinary rise to power and fall from grace, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, YEAR OF WONDERS and MARCH, Geraldine Brooks.
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, YEAR OF WONDERS and MARCH comes a unique and vivid novel that retells the story of King David's extraordinary rise to power and fall from grace.
1000 BC. The Second Iron Age. The time of King David.
Anointed as the chosen one when just a young shepherd boy, David will rise to be king, grasping the throne and establishing his empire. But his journey is a tumultuous one and the consequences of his choices will resound for generations. In a life that arcs from obscurity to fame, he is by turns hero and traitor, glamorous young tyrant and beloved king, murderous despot and remorseful, diminished patriarch. His wives love and fear him, his sons will betray him. It falls to Natan, the courtier and prophet who both counsels and castigates David, to tell the truth about the path he must take.
With stunning originality, acclaimed author Geraldine Brooks offers us a compelling portrait of a morally complex hero from this strange age - part legend, part history. Full of drama and richly drawn detail, THE SECRET CHORD is a vivid story of faith, family, desire and power that brings David magnificently alive.
'a masterly reworking of what fiction and history have afforded Brooks' vibrant and questing imagination' - THE AGE on MARCH
'A single shard of historical fact, a well-worn artefact ... can send her off to the archives to coax fiction from the seams of history in ways that seem almost miraculous to fans and critics alike.' - NEW ZEALAND HERALD
I am currently reading a review copy and it's Geraldine Brooks at her best.  


The Girl in the Spider’s Web (Millennium #4)


This August Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return in the highly anticipated follow-up to Stieg Larsson's THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST

In this adrenaline-charged thriller, genius-hacker Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist face a dangerous new threat and must again join forces.

Late one night, Blomkvist receives a phone call from a trusted source claiming to have information vital to the United States. The source has been in contact with a young female super hacker—a hacker resembling someone Blomkvist knows all too well. The implications are staggering.

Blomkvist, in desperate need of a scoop for Millennium, turns to Lisbeth for help. She, as usual, has her own agenda. In The Girl in the Spider's Web, the duo who thrilled 80 million readers in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest meet again in an extraordinary and uniquely of-the-moment thriller.
