Sightwitch| Susan Dennard (Witchlands #2.5) | Release Date Jan 2018
A Reaper at the Gates| Sabaa Tahir (An Ember in the Ashes #3) | Release Date April 2018 – I really don’t like this change in cover- I mean it’s glorious in it’s own right but it really upsets my OCD of all matching covers 😦 WHY SABAA WHY?!)
So as said above we have the third and final Themis Files now announced!! I am so so sos ososososososo excited- this series has been phenomenal so far and I am over the moon to see where he goes with it. The UK cover has yet to be released but the US cover looks awesome! And to see them all together is beaaaaaautiful! We have to wait until May 1st 2018 for this beauty but I know it will be well worth the wait!
Oh my god – the best news came just a WEEK ago when Tor announced a 1 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL WITH SCHWAB – A NEW SHADES OF MAGIC TRILOGY!! I am gushing, let me regain composure. The books will begin 10-15 years after we left our babies in A Conjuring of Light. The trilogy will be called Threads of Power and I am so so so so stoked to know we will have more of our babies – there will be old and new characters and UGH yes give me more Schwab!!!
We also get a new book from her as well called Black Tabs (? Subject to change) – about a female assassin (similar to Blade Runner apparently?! nom nom nom) HOLD ME .
Raven Boys| Date: TBC
Now I am only mid way through the Raven Boys but I do know that a while ago rights were acquired to go forth and produce a series. From then it was announced that the series will be airing on Syfy with Stiefvater on as coproducer. No casting has been released as of yet but I am on the edge of my seat to see who they cast as my precious baby Adam <3.
A Darker Shade of Magic| V.E Scwab | Date: TBC
So not long ago we had the announcement that the Shades of Magic series was up for adaption with Gerard Butler and his company at the helm. I thought it was due for a film series but it’s now been discussed as a tv series which is SOOOO exciting because WE GET LONGER IN THAT WOOOORLD! I am so up for as much as possible to do with my babies and I cannot wait to see snippets!!
My most exciting piece of info was that Mads Mikkelsen (yes MY MADS FROM HANNIBAL AND THE HUNT AND UHGHF) is to play Mayor Prentiss. Hold me. Hold me. I am so down for this casting, I am already buzzing that Tom Holland is to star as Todd ahhkjdfhgjk. Holland is another superb rising actor who has a raw talent that I hope Hollywood doesn’t beat out of him.
The KingKiller Chronicles| Patrick Rothfuss| Film, TV Series && A GAME?!
This piece of information surprised me. Not only is Rothfuss keeping us waiting with the last book in the trilogy (which is greatly anticipated mind you) he has also signed a deal with Lionsgate to produce a film, a tv series and a video game!!!
Now film and tv series aside I am down for a video game- OH LORD, IF IT LOOKS LIKE ASSASSINS CREED OR THE WITCHER GAMES UGH – It would be gorgeous as an RPG. Gimme it. Gimme it now! Now for all I know it will be twenty years before anything comes from this again as Rothfuss like our dear George RR Martin is a go slow author. Still, this news alone has me re-pumped for this series!
So that is all for my BookFlash this time! I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what book news you have enjoyed these past months!
Love, Em x
