For all fans of Robin Hobb and Tamora Pierce, this extraordinary crossover fantasy features a truly unique central character.
The circus lies behind Micah Grey in dust and ashes. He and the White Clown, Drystan, have taken refuge in the decaying Kymri Theatre, home to the once-great magician, Jasper Maske. Though no longer a circus performer, Micah must still conduct a balancing act between his past and his future, while both avoiding the renewed and embittered rivalry of the magicians of Ellada, and the Policiers who are convinced Micah played a part in the death of his old Ringmaster.
A tale of phantom wings, a clockwork hand, and the delicate unfurling of new love, Shadowplay continues Micah Grey’s extraordinary journey.
I have to admit that it was the cover I fell in love with, and then I read the blurb and I was intrigued. I’m not really a fan of Robin Hobb, but I love Tamora Pierce so I’m curious to see what this book is like.

In contemporary New York, a swan girl must help her enemy destroy her best friend or risk being sold to the black market.
When Deanna’s missing friend Hyde turns up at his father’s funeral to claim his corporate empire and inheritance, she is swept into his glittering world of paparazzi and wealth.
But Deanna has a secret – and somebody knows. Someone who is out to get Hyde. And if she doesn’t play along, and help the enemy take Hyde down…she will be sold to the highest bidder in the black market for human swans.
Now Deanna is struggling to break free from the gilded cage that would trap her forever…
With this one I liked the cover, but the blurb was what sold it to me. I think it has a lot of potential, and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this!
So those are the books I am looking forward to this week. Please let me know in the comments if you’re looking forward to them too, and what book you’re looking forward to this week.
