New Releases of Science Fiction and Fantasy for Children and Teens--end of July edition

Here are a few books that came out in the last days.

Exciting note: The sequel to Skin Hunger, by Kathleen Duey (an utterly riveting fantasy that was on the Cybils short list a year before last) --Sacred Scars--was due to come out August 4, but is actually being sold on Amazon right now! I have just placed my order, and now must quickly go read Skin Hunger again. If you haven't read it at all yet, do. It won't disappoint (well, I liked it lots, at any rate), especially now that you will be able to start right in on the second book...

Middle Grade:

The Book of Ghosts, by Michael Hague. A collection of ghost stories.

Rapacia: The Second Circle of Heck, by Dale E. Basye. Sequel to Heck: Where the Bad Kids Are, a wacky take on the underworld.

Watch the Skies: Daniel X,by James Paterson. The latest adventure of Daniel X, a superpowered alien.


After Dark, by Nancy A. Collins. Vamps, Book 3.

Bite Me! by Melissa Francis. Seventeen-year old vampire girl has to save humankind.

The Eternal Kiss: 12 Vampire Tales of Blood and Desire, edited by Trisha Telep.


  1. SHRIEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    IT'S OUT NOW!????????
    (All of this wonder and awe is reserved for one K.D. -- I don't care about the other books right now.)

  2. I can't wait for Sacred Scats!! I recently read Skin Hunger and the ending was such a cliffhanger!


  3. I loved Rapacia. I adults will really enjoy the Heck books.

    Charlotte, have you read the first book?

  4. I did read the first one, Doret, and I liked it fine, but not, perhaps, enough to rush out and get the sequel.
