List of books to look forward to in 2014:
1. And here we have … the synopsis for DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS (the finale to the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE trilogy)!!!!!!
DREAMS starts where DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT left off, with Karou and Akiva discovering each other alive — although Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she’s ever known. And now, through an act of staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance.
When Jael’s brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves – maybe even toward love. But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera, and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.
Publication date: 8 April 2014
SINNER follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling SHIVER trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole’s story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole’s darkest secret — his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel’s life. Can this sinner be saved?
3. Also, The Merry Sisters of Fate, who used to post fantastic short stories on their website before their short stories got published in THE CURIOSITIES, have another anthology coming out! Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff (who wrote THE REPLACEMENT, PAPER VALENTINE) and Tessa Gratton (who wrote BLOOD MAGIC)
Publication date: all Maggie said was next year.
Endings and beginnings sit so close to each other that it’s sometimes impossible to tell which is which.
Nothing lasts forever, and no one gets that more than Tessa. After her mother died, it’s all she can do to keep her friends, her boyfriend, her happiness from slipping away. And then there’s her dad. He’s stuck in his own daze, and it’s so hard to feel like a family when their house no longer seems like a home.
Her father’s solution? An impromptu road trip that lands them in a small coastal town at Tessa’s grandmother’s. Despite all the warmth and beauty there, Tessa can’t help but feel even more lost.
Enter Henry Lark. He understands the relationships that matter. And more importantly, he understands her. A secret stands between them, but Tessa’s willing to do anything to bring them together—because Henry may just be her one chance at forever.

Why do you do this to me, writers?! Still, if that means I – and all the fans – get to enjoy perfectly written books, then,
