Jacqueline Carey is one of my favorite writers.
So when I see her post a cover for an upcoming new book, I get excited for what is to come!
When Jacqueline decided to step away from the epic/historical fantasy she had been writing for a decade, she sat at her keyboard and wrote an urban fantasy. That book is titled Dark Currents and it’s great. She takes the tropes of the form and makes them her own, the story of Daisy Johanssen compelling as she works to keep the worlds of normal and paranormal separate.
The second book, Autumn Bones, is completed and coming this October 2013! Here is a bit more about it:
New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey returns to the curious Midwest tourist community where normal and paranormal worlds co-exist—however tenuously—under the watchful eye of a female hellspawn…
Fathered by an incubus, raised by a mortal mother, and liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, Daisy Johanssen pulled the community together after a summer tragedy befell the resort town she calls home. Things are back to normal—as normal as it gets for a town famous for its supernatural tourism, and presided over by the reclusive Norse goddess Hel.
Not only has Daisy now gained respect as Hel’s enforcer, she’s dating Sinclair Palmer, a nice, seemingly normal human guy. Not too shabby for the daughter of a demon. Unfortunately, Sinclair has a secret. And it’s a big one.
He’s descended from Obeah sorcerers and they want him back. If he doesn’t return to Jamaica to take up his rightful role in the family, they’ll unleash spirit magic that could have dire consequences for the town. It’s Daisy’s job to stop it, and she’s going to need a lot of help. But time is running out, the dead are growing restless, and one mistake could cost Daisy everything…
There you have it. One of the books I can’t wait to read. If you love urban fantasy, definitely try Dark Currents. If you’ve already read it, the second book is coming soon!
Autumn Bones by Jacqueline Carey is coming October 1, 2013.
Make room for it in your reading schedule!
