Release Of 'The Light Of All That Falls' By James Islington Postponed To 2019, Plus Cover Reveal

If, like me, you are eagerly waiting for the mid-2018 release of James Islington's final The Licanius Trilogy book, then you up for some surprise. Most book sellers originally listed the release of The Light of All That Falls by James Islington next year and that is the very reason I pre-ordered it already. Unfortunately I just received an update from the seller that the release date for the book was postponed so I will have to wait until February 2019 before I can have the copy.

I cannot complain, of course, because I am not entitled to demand from authors when they are going to release their precious books that they had rigorously worked on with labor of Love. For now let us enjoy the official cover of The Light of All That Falls as this trilogy has some of the best book covers that you'll ever lay you eyes on (thanks to Lauren Panepinto for the jacket design and Dominic Saponaro for the jacket illustration).

Cover Reveal: 'The Fates Divide' Is Veronica Roth's Sequel To 'Carve The Mark' (Cyra Noavek And Akos Kereseth Story)

Carve The Mark by Veronica Roth fans, rejoice! The finale of this fantastic duology has come. The official title, cover, synopsis and release date have been revealed and I can't personally handle the excitement. And it's coming to us on the first quarter on next year.

Presenting The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth, the much awaited sequel to Carve The Mark. Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are back and the entanglement of their fates will get tighter and tighter... but, OMG (forgive my language and entitlement), I hate this OCD inducing feeling! The new cover is fantastic but it does not follow the format of the art of the first hardcover book. It follows the later paperback edition and it is killing. I am hoping there will be a boxed set the fixes this.

Check out the cover of The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth.

And here a video you can enjoy.


Synopsis

In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally bestselling Divergent author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. The Fates Divide is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives.

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.

Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.

As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.

The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth will be released on April 10, 2018.

Spot 1980s Easter Eggs In The New 'Ready Player One' Official Trailer, Starring Tye Sheridan

The long wait for the third Ernest Cline Science Fiction novel may be taking its toll on me. Ready Player One and Armada opened a gateway of nostalgia to most of the books' readers and the expectation for the the next one is very strong (at this point I am not totally sure if this upcoming book is a sequel to Ready Player One or a stand alone SF novel). It's a good thing Ready Player One will have an adaptation coming to the wide screen early next year or there will be war...

Ready Player One

Ready Player One is directed by Steven Spielberg, one of the icons that made it to the book. But apparently, he has written himself out of the movie, not entirely but drastically. On the other hand, the movie stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, and T.J. Miller, with Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance. The film was produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger, and Dan Farah based on the screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The executive producers are Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria, and Bruce Berman.

Check out the new official trailer for Ready Player One.


Synopsis

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Ready Player One will hit cinemas on March 30, 2018.

Following the success of The Queen of Blood and The Reluctant Queen comes the final book in Sarah Beth Durst's The Queens of Renthia trilogy: The Queen of Sorrow. If you are worried that this fantastic series about the furies of nature battling it out, and taking each and every opportunity to kill the human pests, you'll be happy to hear that there will be at least one more book from this universe after this one.

But let's not get ahead of our selves yet and focus our attention to The Queen of Sorrow, which will be published next year. The official cover of the said book has been unveiled and this bluish beauty is unlike it's predecessors -- it does not feature the giant woods in it.

Check out the official cover of The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst.

The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst

Synopsis

The battle between vicious spirits and strong-willed queens that started in the award-winning The Queen of Blood and continued in the powerful The Reluctant Queen comes to a stunning conclusion in The Queen of Sorrow, the final volume of Sarah Beth Durst’s Queens of Renthia trilogy.

Queen Daleina has yearned to bring peace and prosperity to her beloved forest home—a hope that seemed doomed when neighboring forces invaded Aratay. Now, with the powerful Queen Naelin ruling by her side, Daleina believes that her dream of ushering in a new era can be realized, even in a land plagued by malevolent nature spirits who thirst for the end of human life.

And then Naelin’s children are kidnapped by spirits.

Nothing is more important to her than her family, and Naelin would rather watch the world burn than see her children harmed. Blaming the defeated Queen Merecot of Semo for the kidnapping, Naelin is ready to start a war—and has the power to do it.

But Merecot has grander plans than a bloody battle with her southern neighbors. Taking the children is merely one step in a plot to change the future of all Renthia, either by ending the threat of spirits once and for all . . . or plunging the world into chaos.

The Queen of Sorrow by Sarah Beth Durst will be released on May 15, 2018.
