Waiting Not So Patiently For An Upcoming Book

Are there any books in a series that you've been waiting forever to read? Cue *SQUEE fan girl* moment here, as I share some exciting info about a couple of series books  and sequels I've been waiting forever to read. Okay it only seems like forever because I have mad love for the authors and their writing.

First up is the fifth book in Elizabeth Bear's Promethean series, One-Eyed Jack and The Suicide King. The release date is November 6, 2013, been waiting on this and happy 2013 is finally here. Only six months left to go, wooyah!

Published by Prime Books, One-Eyed Jack and The Suicide King can also be read as a stand alone book.

Don't ya'll just love that cover? So cool!

About the book:

The One-Eyed Jack and the Suicide King personifies the city of Las Vegas - its history, mystery, mystical power, and heart! When the Suicide King vanishes - possibly killed - in the middle of a magic-rights turf war started by the avatars of Los Angeles, a notorious fictional assassin, and the mutilated ghost of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel - his partner, the One-Eyed Jack, must seek the aid of a bizarre band of legendary and undead allies: the ghosts of Doc Holliday and John Henry the steel-driving man; the echoes of several imaginary super spies, decades displaced in time; and a vampire named Tribute, who bears a striking resemblance to a certain long-lost icon of popular music.

Other books in this series include:

Blood and Iron (June 2006, ROC)
Whiskey and Water (July 2007, ROC)
The Stratford Man: Volume I: Ink and Steel (July 2008, ROC); Volume II: Hell and Earth (August 2008, ROC)

Another book on my Please Can I Have Another list is author Kristen Painter's next book in her acclaimed House of Comarré series, Last Blood.  Also the fifth book in her series.

Gothic Urban Fantasy
Release date: July 2013
 About the book:
Retribution is a gift…

In the final showdown between the forces of dark and light, Mal and Chrysabelle face not only Tatiana, but the ancient evil that now controls her: the Castus Sanguis. Chrysabelle gathers her friends and family around her, forming a plan to bring an end to the chaos surrounding them. But the Castus is the most powerful being they’ve ever come up against. Defeating such evil will require a great sacrifice from someone on the side of light.

One of them will change sides. One of them will die. No one will survive unscathed. Can Chrysabelle save those she cares about or will that love get her killed? What price is she willing to pay to draw last blood?

Other books in this series include:

Blood Rights (October 2011/Orbit)
Flesh And Blood (November 2011/Orbit)
Bad Blood (December 2011/Orbit)
Out For Blood (October 2012/Orbit)

I do have some good news for anxious HOC fans, Kristen's novella prequel will be out tomorrow, May 15th!  Sweet! Check it out:

Set in the world of the House of Comarré, Kristen Painter gives us a new novella about the price of freedom.

Maris’s life as a comarré has come down to three options: escape her patron and spend the rest of her days looking over her shoulder, fight him for her freedom with the understanding it could mean her death or undergo dangerous experimentation to transform her blood into something even more powerful.

Before she can make a decision, she discovers the vampire who’s been charged with sunproofing her blood isn’t so fond of her patron either. In fact, Dominic is unlike any vampire she’s ever met, but is she desperate enough to put her trust in another noble? Her heart says yes…
