Each fortnight we will be recommending five of our favourite recent releases that we think you will love. Just click the book cover to be taken to our full review or its Goodreads page. We hope you find some fabulous reads and maybe a few new authors too. Happy Reading!

1. THE LOST PRINCE by Julie Kagawa

A fantastic, exciting tale set in the vivid, magical world of The Iron Fey. A new wraith-like, glamour sucking faery has arrived and exiles and half-bloods are disappearing. When Ethan Chase’s half-fey friend Todd disappears, Ethan calls upon his half-sister, The Iron Queen, Meghan Chase, to help him investigate. 

3. GHOST PLANET by Sharon Lynn Fisher

An amazing debut combining paranormal fantasy and sci-fi with fabulous results. Set on the strange planet of Ardagh1, heroine Elizabeth is determined not to fade into the background of Murphy’s life and sets about finding a way of existing beyond the life of a ghost. Warning: you will be late for work.  

1. POISON PRINCESS by Kresley Cole

The first book in Cole’s young adult Arcana Chronicles. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the main characters are tied to a deck of tarot cards, struggling to understand their roles in this new world. Throw in some zombies and a tangled romance and you are set for an amazing, thoroughly entertaining, read. 

4. BLOOD AND FEATHERS by Lou Morgan

The first in a new series by debut author Lou Morgan, Blood and Feathers manages to re-invent the Angel/Demon conflict. For lovers of true Urban Fantasy, or of TV series such as Supernatural, this book is a must read. Roll on Book #2, Rebellion, set for release August 2013! 

5. ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND by Gena Showalter

An exciting urban fantasy with a kickass, zombie-slaying heroine with attitude. As Alice comes to terms with the loss of her family, she seeks revenge on the monsters who destroyed them. Full of action, gore, romance and twists make this a heart racing read that will have you hooked from start to finish.
