Synopsis

What does it mean if the gods can be killed? The epic fantasy series that started with Age of Myth and Age of Swords continues.

In Age of War, the battle between humankind and the cruel, god-like beings who once ruled them finally ignites. And it will be up to Persephone--the first woman to lead her tribe--to become the hero that the world needs.

--

They came with hardly a warning, thousands beautiful and terrible; They came across bridges of stone wearing shining gold and shimmering blue; They came with powerful whirlwinds, and giants, fire, and death; They came and nothing could stop them, save honorable men. — the Book of Brin

War arrives as the Battle of Grandford begins. The full force of the Fhrey army arrives and is seemingly invincible. As the fane’s forces prepare to overwhelm the hastily prepared human defense, the fate of mankind depends on the birth of a butterfly, the speed of a cripple, and the courage of a coward.

Age of War by Michael J. Sullivan will be released on February 20, 2018.

'Origin' By Dan Brown Gets Tremendously Underwhelming Official Cover, Synopsis, And Teaser Trailer

I am not bitter because I joined the Origin Cover Contest and didn't make it to the final or top six designs... but after getting all those hype and marketing for Dan Brown's next explosive novel I feel so tremendously underwhelmed after seeing the official cover. The contestants were given a few weeks to do a fan art cover, and I think most of them could take a run from Doubleday's art department. That's just my opinion, though.

As a redeeming factor we got a very twisty official synopsis for Origin and we are journeying to Spain among many other riddle-ridden locations. A new teaser trailer has also been released and I just can wait for the October release anymore.

Check out the cover of Origin by Dan Brown.

Here are a few international covers as well, especially for Uk and Spain.


Synopsis

WHERE DO WE COME FROM?
WHERE ARE WE GOING?

The stunningly inventive new novel from the world’s most popular thriller writer

Bilbao, Spain

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

Origin is Dan Brown’s most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

Origin by Dan brown will be released on October 3, 2017.

'Turtles All the Way Down' Marks Author John Green's Return, To Be Published This October

It's been five years since the release of Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Five long years of anguish-filled and angst-driven wait before we could finally read the next of the author's novel. He'd been busy... what with the movie adaptations of at least two of his books and... he has a life, you [insert profanity here].

Just as I was remorsefully staring on his previous works, perching upon my lengthy book shelves, this glorious light of redeeming news has come. John Green will be releasing his next book this year and it's far nearer than I originally expected. This much awaited novel is called Turtles All the Way Down.

The official cover for Turtles All the Way Down by John Green has not be unveiled but you may use your imagination to fill in the placeholder cover.

Synopsis

The wait is over! John Green, the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars, is back.

It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward.

In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity.

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green will hit bookstores on October 10, 2017.
