The Hummingbird
William Morrow, June 8, 2016
Trade Paperback, 336 pages
Hardcover and eBook, September 8, 2015

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors, Part 19
From the author of the acclaimed The Curiosity comes a compelling and moving story of compassion, courage, and redemption.

Deborah Birch is a seasoned hospice nurse whose daily work requires courage and compassion. But her skills and experience are tested in new and dramatic ways when her easygoing husband, Michael, returns from his third deployment to Iraq haunted by nightmares, anxiety, and rage. She is determined to help him heal, and to restore the tender, loving marriage they once had.

At the same time, Deborah’s primary patient is Barclay Reed, a retired history professor and expert in the Pacific Theater of World War II whose career ended in academic scandal. Alone in the world, the embittered professor is dying. As Barclay begrudgingly comes to trust Deborah, he tells her stories from that long-ago war, which help her find a way to help her husband battle his demons.

Told with piercing empathy and heartbreaking realism, The Hummingbird is a masterful story of loving commitment, service to country, and absolution through wisdom and forgiveness.

Colonel Soraya Yamin, commander of the battle-ravaged space control cruiser Phalanx, engages the Lankies, a merciless alien species, in an apocalyptic assault over Mars. The Lankies, who have outgunned, outmaneuvered, and outfought humanity at every turn, have been menacing Earth’s colonies. But now they’re suddenly in our solar system, decimating the NACS fleet and swarming toward Earth itself. Facing insurmountable odds, Soraya must make a fateful choice between her sworn duty and the loved ones she desperately wants to protect.

The time has come to take the fight to the Lankies.

Mars has been under Lanky control for more than a year. Since then, the depleted forces of Earth’s alliances have rebuilt their fleets, staffing old warships with freshly trained troops. Torn between the need to beat the Lankies to the punch and taking enough time to put together an effective fighting force, command has decided to strike now.

Once again, seasoned veterans Andrew and Halley find themselves in charge of green troops and at the sharp tip of the spear as the combined military might of Earth goes up against the Lankies. But if there’s one constant in war, it’s that no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy…and the Lankies want to hold on to Mars as badly as humanity wants to reclaim it.

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors, Part 19
A space adventure set on a lone ship where the clones of a murdered crew must find their murderer -- before they kill again.

It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood.

At least, Maria Arena had never experienced it. She had no memory of how she died. That was also new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died.

Maria's vat was in the front of six vats, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it could awaken. And Maria wasn't the only one to die recently...

She joins a Vatican-backed black-ops anti-magic squad—Team Three of the Societas Librorum Occultorum—and together they stand between humanity and the magical apocalypse. Some call them the Bookburners. They don’t like the label.

If she survives to initiation, she'll be inducted among the chosen of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and be one step closer to the only thing she desires.

Illuminae

The Illuminae Files 1

Hardcover and eBook, 608 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors, Part 19
For fans of Marie Lu comes the first book in an epic series that bends the sci-fi genre into a new dimension.

“A truly beautiful novel that redefines the form.”Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of Red Queen

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.


Gemina

Hardcover and eBook, 672 pages

What's Up for the Debut Author Challenge Authors, Part 19
Brace yourself for GEMINA—the highly anticipated sequel to the book critics called “out-of-this-world awesome,”featuring journal illustrations by bestselling author Marie Lu!

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.

Laura Lam's adult sci-fi debut False Hearts: Two formerly conjoined sisters are ensnared in a murderous plot involving psychoactive drugs, shared dreaming, organized crime, and a sinister cult.

Raised in the closed cult of Mana's Hearth and denied access to modern technology, conjoined sisters Taema and Tila dream of a life beyond the walls of the compound. When the heart they share begins to fail, the twins escape to San Francisco, where they are surgically separated and given new artificial hearts. From then on they pursue lives beyond anything they could have previously imagined.

Ten years later, Tila returns one night to the twins' home in the city, terrified and covered in blood, just before the police arrive and arrest her for murder--the first homicide by a civilian in decades. Tila is suspected of involvement with the Ratel, a powerful crime syndicate that deals in the flow of Verve, a drug that allows violent minds to enact their darkest desires in a terrifying dreamscape. Taema is given a proposition: go undercover as her sister and perhaps save her twin's life. But during her investigation Taema discovers disturbing links between the twins' past and their present. Once unable to keep anything from each other, the sisters now discover the true cost of secrets.

Interview with Marko Kloos


Please welcome Marko Kloos to The Qwillery. Chains of Command, the 4th novel in Marko's Frontlines series, was published on April 19th by 47North.



Interview with Marko Kloos




TQWelcome back to The Qwillery. Your new novel, Chains of Command (Frontlines 4), was published on April 19th. Has your writing process changed (or not) from when you wrote Terms of Enlistment (Frontlines 1) to now?

Marko:  Thank you! My writing process is still largely the same—I work off a chapter outline that hits all the major plot points, but leaves me some elbow room along the way. It’s a sort of pantser/plotter hybrid method that works well for me. The only difference between the processes for Terms of Enlistment and Chains of Command is the medium—I wrote the first draft of Terms mostly in longhand, but because of the time constraints of the series, I write my first drafts mostly on the computer now.



TQWhat do you wish that you knew about book publishing when Terms of Enlistment came out that you know now?

Marko:  I knew practically nothing about publishing when TERMS came out. My agent, the hyper-capable Evan Gregory with the Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency, guided me through the process and made sure I don’t sell my stuff for the royalty equivalent of a handful of inert magic beans. The biggest revelation was that landing an agent and a book deal isn’t the finish line, it’s just the starting line. Then you have to keep turning in manuscripts, do developmental edits, be available for side projects and interviews and fan mail, and so on. Before, when I was still looking for an agent and a publisher, I was working on my own schedule. Now I am on someone else’s schedule, and the process involves a lot of people. It’s a much busier life now, but it’s amazingly fulfilling.



TQTell us something about Chains of Command that is not found in the book description.

Marko:  First off—it wasn’t supposed to be its own book. The events of CHAINS OF COMMAND were originally part of the outline for ANGLES OF ATTACK, the book that came before it. It’s pretty safe to say that my outline may have been a little ambitious in scope.

I also had a certain Russian battlespace coordinator on the mission with Andrew in CHAINS OF COMMAND, but having him in the story didn’t quite work, so I had to put the poor guy back on the shelf, to return in style for FIELDS OF FIRE.



TQWhich character in the Frontlines series (so far) surprised you the most? Who has been the hardest character to write and why?

Marko:  Andrew is easy to write because we share a few character traits (and because I get to spend my time in his head a lot), but his character arc is still positively surprising because his outlooks and ethics kept evolving organically with the story. He’s a different person in book 4 than he was in book 1, but everything was a logical consequence of his slowly increasing experience and responsibilities.

The hardest to write well is probably Andrew’s wife, ace drop ship pilot Halley, because she is a different personality altogether. She’s a goal-driven Type A who excels at most everything she does in the military, and she doesn’t have the mushy sentimentalism that afflicts Andrew on occasion. It’s harder to write someone who’s not the same gender as you are, with a different personality that takes more empathy to discover, and a different cultural and social background, without making her sound contrived or artificial—or unsympathetic.



TQHow do you keep track of characters, plot lines, etc. in the Frontlines series?

Marko:  I write chapter outlines for each book which sketch the plot for the novel in rough brush strokes, so to speak. Because the Frontlines novels are all written in first person POV, I don’t have to juggle character viewpoint chapters. The supporting cast drifts in and out of the narrative as required, and I’ve managed to keep the cast manageable enough to keep track mostly in my head. I do have a notebook “bible” of the series that lists all the nuts-and-bolts stuff so I can keep the continuity straight—ship classes, hull numbers, character timelines, and so on. But I don’t do elaborate Rowling-esque spreadsheets or anything like that. I can keep it all reasonably straight with just a little leather-bound notebook with replaceable inserts, and a good mechanical pencil.



TQWhich question about Chains of Command or the Frontlines series do you wish someone would ask?  Ask it and answer it.

Marko:

Q: What do you do to maintain the realistic feel to the military culture a lot of reviews have commented on?

A: I draw on the memories of my own service time, but I also stay on top of military culture and consult active-duty friends and veterans a lot to make sure I keep Andrew grounded and realistic. For example, I want to avoid Protagonist Power Creep, something that’s very common in military SF—by book 4 or 5, the protagonist has a staff or general officer rank and a chest full of medals, and a grudgingly respectful nickname bestowed on him/her even by the enemy. In contrast, Andrew starts as a recruit, and it takes him four books to even make it to O-1 (and that only because there’s a personnel crisis, and they are short on qualified pod heads.) He’s also never the deciding factor in a battle, only one part of the machine trying to do his job with what he has.



TQPlease give us one or two of your favorite non-spoilery quotes from Chains of Command.

Marko

For a few moments, there’s silence in the cargo hold as everyone looks at the TacNet screen,as if we’re all waiting for it to unlock some previously invisible secret. Then Sergeant Fallon clears her throat, and all heads turn in her direction.
“That would be an incredibly aggressive and reckless thing to do. And only a totally irresponsible gung-ho podhead moron with more balls than brains would even think about it.”
She smiles grimly.
“Naturally, I’m very much in love with that plan, Lieutenant.”
Halley lets out an exasperated little huff, but she smiles as she does it.
“All right, gentlemen,” she says. “Let’s put the Lieutenant’s aggressive and reckless plan to a vote. Who here also has more balls than brains and thinks we should go out with a bang?”
Lieutenant Dorian and Sergeant Fallon both raise their hands. Lieutenant Wolfe follows suit after a few seconds. Lieutenant Hanscom only shakes his head with a frown.
Halley raises her hand as well.
“Oh, goddamn it,” Lieutenant Hanscom huffs. Then he raises his hand too.
“We’re all a bunch of idiots,” Halley says. “Now that we settled the if, let’s get to work on the how.”



TQ:   What's next?

Marko:  I’m currently finishing up the fifth novel in the Frontlines series, which will be called FIELDS OF FIRE. After that, there will be a sixth Frontlines novel, and then I am going to start a new military SF series with 47North that may run concurrently with future Frontlines stories. I also have ideas for a few more Frontlines short stories and novellas, so be on the lookout for those before too long. It seems there are still lots of stories to be told in that universe.



TQThank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Marko:  Thanks for having me again, and I hope we can talk again when FIELDS OF FIRE gets released!

TQAbsolutely!

Interview with Marko Kloos
The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens’ seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers—all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.

Knowing Earth’s uneasy respite won’t last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades’ stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat—and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity’s future.

Kindle eBook, May 8, 2013

Interview with Marko Kloos
The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you're restricted to two thousand calories of badly flavored soy every day:

You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service.

With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth. But as he starts a career of supposed privilege, he soon learns that the good food and decent health care come at a steep price…and that the settled galaxy holds far greater dangers than military bureaucrats or the gangs that rule the slums.

The debut novel from Marko Kloos, Terms of Enlistment is a new addition to the great military sci-fi tradition of Robert Heinlein, Joe Haldeman, and John Scalzi.



Lines of Departure
Frontlines 2
47North, January 28, 2014

Interview with Marko Kloos
Vicious interstellar conflict with an indestructible alien species. Bloody civil war over the last habitable zones of the cosmos. Political unrest, militaristic police forces, dire threats to the Solar System…

Humanity is on the ropes, and after years of fighting a two-front war with losing odds, so is North American Defense Corps officer Andrew Grayson. He dreams of dropping out of the service one day, alongside his pilot girlfriend, but as warfare consumes entire planets and conditions on Earth deteriorate, he wonders if there will be anywhere left for them to go.

After surviving a disastrous space-borne assault, Grayson is reassigned to a ship bound for a distant colony—and packed with malcontents and troublemakers. His most dangerous battle has just begun.

In this sequel to the bestselling Terms of Enlistment, a weary soldier must fight to prevent the downfall of his species…or bear witness to humanity’s last, fleeting breaths.



Angles of Attack
Frontlines 3
47North, April 21, 2015
Trade Paperback and Kindle eBook, 350 pages

Interview with Marko Kloos
The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system’s edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.

Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time, the struggle for humanity’s future can only end in either victory or annihilation.





And there is a comic series! Note that the comic takes place concurrently with Angles of Attack (Frontlines 3).

As unanswerable distress calls blare, Soraya turns her thoughts to her family on Earth, the next planet in the Lankies’ crosshairs.

Rising Tide
Falling Sky 2
Pyr, October 6, 2015
Trade Paperback and eBook, 260 pages
Cover Artist: Chris McGrath

Ben Gold lives in dangerous times. Two generations ago, a virulent disease turned the population of most of North America into little more than beasts called Ferals. Some of those who survived took to the air, scratching out a living on airships and dirigibles soaring over the dangerous ground.

Ben has his own airship, a family heirloom, and has signed up to help a group of scientists looking for a cure. But that's not as easy as it sounds, especially with a power-hungry air city looking to raid any nearby settlements. To make matters worse, his airship, the only home he's ever known, is stolen. Ben must try to survive on the ground while trying to get his ship back.

This brings him to Gastown, a city in the air recently conquered by belligerent and expansionist pirates. When events turn deadly, Ben must decide what really matters-whether to risk it all on a desperate chance for a better future or to truly remain on his own.




Marko Kloos (2014)

Chains of Command
Frontlines 4
47North, April 19, 2016
Trade Paperback and Kindle eBook, 384 pages

The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens’ seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers—all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.

Knowing Earth’s uneasy respite won’t last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades’ stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat—and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity’s future.




Snorri Kristjansson (2014)

Blood Will Follow
The Valhalla Saga 2
Jo Fletcher Books, December 1, 2015
Trade Paperback, 320 pages
Hardcover and eBook, January 6, 2015

Starburst magazine called Snorri Kristjansson's Swords of Good Men--the first volume in the Valhalla Saga--"A cracking yarn (one that would make a great movie), filled with enough to satisfy any fan of Vikings and their mythology." Now this raucous and gripping fantasy adventure set in Viking Norway continues with Blood Will Follow, where plundering and pillaging are a way of life and creature comforts rarely exceed a mug of sour mead.

Ulfar Thormodsson and Audun Arngrimsson are battered, having barely survived the battle for Stenvik, waged between King Olav and the followers of the White Christ, and those whose allegiance remains to the gods of the Norse pantheon. Alas, the two Vikings' encounter with a mysterious witch just before escaping the town over the city's walls have left them without the one thing that made them human: their mortality.

While Ulfar heads home to Sweden, hoping to find a safe haven where he can come to grips with his newfound inability to die, Audun travels by foot to the south, searching for answers on the open road. But both men are about to discover that they cannot run from their destiny. King Olav has left the conquered town of Stenvik in the hands of his lieutenant so he can journey north, following the advice of the scheming healer Valgard, to hunt for the source of the Vikings' power.

Soon, Ulfar and Audun will realize they have important roles to play in the battle for supremacy between those seeking to spread the gospel of the White Christ and those who keep to the old ways of Odin, Thor, and Loki.


Path of Gods
The Valhalla Saga 3
Jo Fletcher Books, January 5, 2016
9781623656720, 1623656729
Hardcover and eBook, 320 pages

In this raucous fantasy epic set at during the era when the Vikings fearlessly sailed the world's seas, mead flowed freely, and Gods walked the earth, companions Audun Arngrimsson and Ulfar Thormodsson are reunited after separate journeys of self-discovery.

In Trondheim, King Olav, self-appointed champion of the White Christ, grows restless in the wake of a significant victory and finds his faith tested further as he struggles to maintain the peace. With his garrison decimated and his forces surrounded by deceitful, grasping local chieftains, the King contemplates how best and where to spread the word of his God.

Reunited after their quests to discover the contours of their newfound immortality, Audun and Ulfar have a new sense of purpose: to ensure that the North remains in the hands of those who keep to the old ways of Odin, Thor, and Loki. To do so, they must take on a powerful adversary who will stop at nothing to put an end to age-old traditions in the name of the White Christ. Audun and Ulfar are about to do battle with the most powerful enemy they have ever faced, and if they are to have any chance of victory, they must find equally powerful allies.

Meanwhile in the North, touched by the trickster god, something old, malevolent, and very, very angry stirs . . .




Jessica Leake (2014)

Arcana : A Historical Fantasy
Talos, January 5, 2016
Trade Paperback, 268 pages
Hardcover and eBook, November 11, 2014

Amid the sumptuous backdrop of the London season in 1905, headstrong Katherine Sinclair must join the ranks of debutantes vying for suitors. Unfortunately for Katherine, she cannot imagine anything more loathsome—or dangerous. To help ease her entrance into society, Katherine’s family has elicited the assistance of the Earl of Thornewood, a friend and London’s most eligible bachelor, to be her constant companion at the endless fetes and balls. But upon her arrival in London, Katherine realizes there will be more to this season than just white gowns and husband hunting.

Through her late mother’s enchanted diary, Katherine receives warning to keep hidden her otherworldly ability to perform arcana, a magic fueled by the power of the sun. Any misstep could mean ruin—and not just for her family name. The Order of the Eternal Sun is everywhere—hunting for those like her, able to feed on arcana with only a touch of the hand.

But society intrigue can be just as perilous as the Order. The machinations of the fashionable elite are a constant threat, and those who covet Katherine’s arcana, seeking the power of her birthright, could be hiding behind the facade of every suitor—even the darkly handsome Earl of Thornewood.

With so much danger and suspicion, can she give her heart to the one who captivates her, or is he just another after her power?


The Order of the Eternal Sun
A Novel of the Sylvani
Talos, August 2, 2016
Hardcover and eBook, 288 pages

[cover not yet available]
Lucy Sinclair’s debut will be a parade of everything opulent Edwardian London society has to offer. Most importantly, it will be nothing like her older sister’s dangerous experience—especially if her overprotective brother-in-law, Lord Thornewood, has his way. As if screening her dance partners isn’t enough, Thornewood insists that his brother, James, train Lucy in self-defense. She wouldn’t mind so much if her treacherous mind didn’t continue to replay the kiss they once shared.

But awkward defense lessons are the least of her problems. Her arcana, a magical talent that allows her to mentally enter any scene that she draws, grows stronger by the day. Again and again Lucy is compelled to draw a portal to her mother’s realm of Sylvania—and with each stroke of her pen, she risks attracting the attention of the Order of the Eternal Sun, the sinister brotherhood that steals the power of Sylvani blood for their own dark ends.

When a bold new suitor arrives from India, Lucy can’t help but be intrigued—though her family questions his mysterious past. But as Lucy’s own suspicions grow, and the threat of the Order looms larger, Lucy will have to learn to harness her unpredictable power or risk falling under the Order’s shadow forever.




Peter Liney (2014)

In Constant Fear
Detainee 3
Jo Fletcher Books, December 22, 2015
Hardcover and eBook, 352 pages

Over a year has passed since "Big Guy" Clancy and the ragged band of survivors managed to escape from the hellish reality of the City. Pursued by the ruthless leader of Infinity-the corporation behind the systematic extermination of thousands of "lower class" citizens-they've been on the run ever since, constantly looking over their shoulders.

Despite this, they have forged a new life working the land on an abandoned smallholding on the other side of the mountains. Hidden there, they are as close to happy as they can be.

But peace is short-lived. Strange things start to happen in the valley: too many unlucky coincidences convince them that another power is rising against them, and there are many questions to be answered: what is the shadow maker? And who-or what-has begun to howl in the night?


Into The Fire
Detainee 2
Jo Fletcher Books, February 9, 2016
Mass Market Paperback
Hardcover and eBook, March 17, 2015

Having escaped the Island--a wasteland that housed those no longer able to contribute to society--Clancy thought his fight was over. But they have returned to the mainland to find that it is not the haven they anticipated. With the punishment satellites that kept them on the Island gone, hell has been unleashed. Clancy is about to discover that his work is far from over. The fires of hell don't burn much hotter than this.

Aidan Harte

Irenicon
Wave Trilogy1
Jo Fletcher Books, March 10, 2015
Trade Paperback, 496 pages
Previously published in Hardcover and eBook, April 2014

"If there were stars for world-building, Irenicon would be a five plus, no question," says SFX.

"The book is a fountain of gorgeous detail, festooned with enriching codices and enlightening, subtly subsumed exposition," raved Sci-Fi Now.

The river Irenicon is a feat of ancient Concordian engineering. Blasted through the middle of Rasenna in 1347, using Wave technology, it divided the only city strong enough to defeat the Concordian Empire. But no one could have predicted the river would become sentient--and hostile. Sofia Scaligeri, the soon-to-be Contessa of Rasenna, has inherited a city tearing itself apart from the inside. And try as she might, she can see no way of stopping the culture of vendetta that has the city in its grasp. Until a Concordian engineer arrives to build a bridge over the Irenicon, clarifying everything: the feuding factions of Rasenna can either continue to fight each other or they can unite against their shared enemy. And they will surely need to stand together--for Concord is about to unleash the Wave again.



The Warring States
Wave Trilogy 2
Jo Fletcher Books, April 7, 2015
Hardcover and eBook, 512 pages

Interzone raved that “Harte is a brilliant new voice is historical fantasy.” In The Warring States, Aidan Harte continues his high fantasy adventure began in Irenicon.

After the rout at Rasenna, Concord faces enemies on all fronts, and nobody believes that the last surviving Apprentice is equal to these crises–but Torbidda didn’t become Apprentice by letting himself be manipulated.

While Sofia is struggling to understand her miraculous pregnancy, the City of Towers grows wealthy. But it’s not long before the people of Rasenna start arguing again, and as the city falls apart once more, Sofia realises she must escape Etruria to save her baby. When prophecy leads her to another cesspit of treachery, the decadent Crusader kingdom of Oltremare, Sofia begins to despair, for this time she can see no way out.





Sylvia Izzo Hunter

Lady of Magick
Noctis Magicae 2
Ace, September 1, 2015
Trade Paperback and eBook,

Sylvia Izzo Hunter brought “both rural Brittany and an alternative Regency England to vivid life”* in The Midnight Queen, her debut novel of history, magic, and myth. Now, in her new Noctis Magicae novel, Sophie and Gray Marshall are ensnared in an arcane plot that threatens to undo them both.

In her second year of studies at Merlin College, Oxford, Sophie Marshall is feeling alienated among fellow students who fail to welcome a woman to their ranks. So when her husband, Gray, is invited north as a visiting lecturer at the University in Din Edin, they leap at the chance. There, Sophie’s hunger for magical knowledge can finally be nourished. But soon, Sophie must put her newly learned skills to the test.

Sophie returns home one day to find a note from Gray—he’s been summoned urgently to London. But when he doesn’t return, and none of her spells can find a trace of him, she realizes something sinister has befallen him. With the help of her sister, Joanna, she delves into Gray’s disappearance, and soon finds herself in a web of magick and intrigue that threatens not just Gray, but the entire kingdom.





Stephen Lloyd Jones

The String Diaries
String Diaries 1
Mulholland Books, January 6, 2015
Trade Paperback, 448 pages
Previously published in Hardcover and eBook, July 2014

A family is hunted by a centuries-old monster: a man with a relentless obsession who can take on any identity.

The String Diaries opens with Hannah frantically driving through the night--her daughter asleep in the back, her husband bleeding out in the seat beside her. In the trunk of the car rests a cache of diaries dating back 200 years, tied and retied with strings through generations. The diaries carry the rules for survival that have been handed down from mother to daughter since the 19th century. But how can Hannah escape an enemy with the ability to look and sound like the people she loves?

Stephen Lloyd Jones's debut novel is a sweeping thriller that extends from the present day, to Oxford in the 1970s, to Hungary at the turn of the 19th century, all tracing back to a man from an ancient royal family with a consuming passion--a boy who can change his shape, insert himself into the intimate lives of his victims, and destroy them.

If Hannah fails to end the chase now, her daughter is next in line. Only Hannah can decide how much she is willing to sacrifice to finally put a centuries-old curse to rest.



Written in the Blood
String Diaries 2
Mulholland Books, May 26, 2015
Hardcover and eBook, 496 pages

In the sequel to The String Diaries, a mother and daughter find their place among the descendants of an immortal line of shapeshifters.

Leah Wilde is the last of a line of shapeshifters called the Long Lives. The few who remain are scattered about the globe. Leah and her mother, Hannah, are determined to find them and to save them from extinction.

But Leah and Hannah are not alone in their search. For centuries an ancient monster has thrived by killing members of the Long Lives. Over a hundred years ago in Budapest, a boy named Izsak witnessed unspeakable sacrifices within his orphanage, all to appease this ravenous beast. Today the monster stalks America, preying on the young in its quest for immortality. Written in the Blood is the stunning next chapter in Stephen Lloyd Jones's inventive and exciting saga.





Marko Kloos

Angles of Attack
Frontline 3
47North, April 21, 2015
Trade Paperback and eBook, 350 pages

The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system’s edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.

Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time, the struggle for humanity’s future can only end in either victory or annihilation.






Snorri Kristjansson

Swords of Good Men
Valhalla Saga 1
Jo Fletcher Books, January 6, 2015
Trade Paperback, 352 pages
Previously published in Hardcover and eBook, January 2014

Swords of Good Men--the first volume Snorri Kristjansson's Vhlhalla Saga--in is a raucous and gripping fantasy adventure set in Viking Norway, where plundering and pillaging are a way of life and creature comforts rarely exceed a mug of sour mead.

To weary Viking Ulfar Thormodsson, the town of Stenvik is the penultimate stop on what has been a long and perilous journey. It has been particularly challenging for Thormodsson, who has been charged with protecting the life of his high-born cousin. Having travelled the world for two years, all he wants is to go home--but Stenvik awaits.

After coming ashore, Thormodsson meets the beautiful and tragic Lilja, who immediately captures his heart. Stenvik is also home to solitary blacksmith Audun Arngrimsson, whose past hides many dark secrets. Soon, the conflict brewing between two factions of dangerous and determined men of the town threatens to sweep all of them, natives and visitors alike, into the jaws of war.

As the Vikings learn, King Olav is marching on Stenvik from the east, determined to bring the White Christ to the masses at the point of his sword - even as a host of bloodthirsty raiders led by a mysterious woman sails from the north. Thormodsson and his companions will soon learn that in this conflict between the Old Gods and the new, there are enemies everywhere - outside the walls of Stenvik as well as within.

Swords of Good Men features a memorable cast of original characters and is driven by non-stop action and a clever sense of humor. Kristjansson deftly and elegantly weaves Norse mythology and history with fantasy in a novel that offers not only a good dose of bloody Viking feuding, but intrigue and romance.



Blood Will Follow
Valhalla Saga 2
Jo Fletcher Books, January 6, 2015
Hardcover and eBook, 400 pages

Starburst magazine called Snorri Kristjansson's Swords of Good Men--the first volume in the Valhalla Saga--"A cracking yarn (one that would make a great movie), filled with enough to satisfy any fan of Vikings and their mythology." Now this raucous and gripping fantasy adventure set in Viking Norway continues with Blood Will Follow, where plundering and pillaging are a way of life and creature comforts rarely exceed a mug of sour mead.

But both men are about to discover that they cannot run from their destiny. King Olav has left the conquered town of Stenvik in the hands of his lieutenant so he can journey north, following the advice of the scheming healer Valgard, to hunt for the source of the Vikings' power.

Soon, Ulfar and Audun will realize they have important roles to play in the battle for supremacy between those seeking to spread the gospel of the White Christ and those who keep to the old ways of Odin, Thor, and Loki.


The View from Monday - January 27, 2014


Happy last Monday in January! The first month of the year has flown by it seems. I recently finished reading Hive Monkey (Ack-Ack Macaque 2) by Gareth L. Powell and Shovel Ready (Spademan 1) by Adam Sternbergh. Both novels were terrific.  I'm presently reading Breach Zone (Shadow Ops 3) by Myke Cole. You can expect a review on the 29th.

In other news: Since The Qwillery has over 700,000 pageviews (711,733 as of this morning), I'm planning a 7 book giveaway or something like that. I'm trying to decide whether it should be multi-genre or just one genre. I'll keep you posted!

Interview with Marko Kloos, author of Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure - January 24, 2014


Please welcome Marko Kloos to The Qwillery as part of the 2014 Debut Author Challenge Interviews. Terms of Enlistment, Marko's debut, is out in print on January 28, 2014 along with Lines of Departure (print and Kindle eBook)



Interview with Marko Kloos, author of Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure - January 24, 2014




TQ:  Welcome to The Qwillery. When and why did you start writing?

Marko:  I’ve been writing since I was a teenager, and more than likely even before that. (I remember writing stories for my brother to take to school with him when we were both in elementary school, so I guess the writing bug hit early.) But I’ve been a weekend writer for most of my life—I always had the possibility of writing for publication in the back of my head, but making it a full-time pursuit wasn’t feasible. It wasn’t until I got married and we started having kids that I decided to put the car into gear, so to speak. Of course, being a stay-at-home parent is the worst possible set of circumstances for quiet, uninterrupted writing time…



TQ:  Are you a plotter or a pantser?

Marko:  A little bit of both. I have a general plot in my head before I start writing, and I plot out the main “waypoints” for the story ahead of time. When the novel diverges from that basic plot sketch, I revise the plot and let the story go where it wants to go. I do have one project in the works (a YA novel) that’s plotted out in detail—almost every chapter and scene—but in general I find that it stifles me too much and makes the work feel like I’m painting by numbers.



TQ:  What is the most challenging thing for you about writing? Where do you write?

Marko:  The most challenging thing about writing for me is to stay off the Internet and not get distracted by that Procrastination Engine. That’s part of the reason why I do my first drafts in longhand—there’s no Twitter or Facebook to “just check for a minute” when work bogs down, and I find it easier to remain on task. (I also enjoy the physical process of handwriting, and it’s neat to have an original manuscript of the first draft to put on the shelf.

I have a dedicated office for writing now, in the back of our house where it’s quiet, but up until recently I was a pretty nomadic writer. I’d take the notebook or writing pad all over the place in the course of a day—kitchen table, bedroom recliner, living room couch, coffee shop. The kids are in school now, so I can actually spend most of the day in the office without interruptions, but when they were still home with me, I had to get my writing done in bursts—while they were napping or watching something, or on the playground while they were playing for half an hour. When you write like that, it’s an advantage to have a highly mobile set of tools that doesn’t require a nearby outlet and doesn’t represent much theft value if you have to leave it on the playground bench for a little while because you have to boost a kid on the swings or fix a boo-boo.



TQ:  Who are some of your literary influences? Favorite authors?

Marko:  I want to think that everything I’ve read has been a literary influence in a way—it’s all grist for the mill, right? As far as SF goes, TERMS and LINES don’t get around the big names in the genre as far as influence goes, Robert Heinlein and Joe Haldeman in particular. Those are also among my favorite authors, along with John Scalzi, Neil Gaiman, and Neal Stephenson. But I’m genre-agnostic—I’ll read everything. LitFic, SF, Fantasy, YA, mystery, and (gasp!) even romance. Some of the authors whose work I’ve really enjoyed lately are John Green, Saladin Ahmed, Paolo Bacigalupi, and Adam Johnson. I’m currently reading Johnson’s “The Orphan Master’s Son”.



TQ:  Describe Terms of Enlistment of in 140 characters or less.

Marko:  Boy from the projects joins the service because it’s less dangerous than staying home—or so he thinks.



TQ:  Tell us something about Terms of Enlistment that is not in the book description.

Marko:  The book takes place in 2108, and World War III happened fifty years prior. In the resulting peace treaty between the two Earth alliances, the Svalbard Accords, the belligerents outlawed the use of atomic weapons on Earth, and classified as a war crime the public broadcast of Justin Bieber music and the improper use of the possessive apostrophe on all signage.



TQ:  What inspired you to write Terms of Enlistment? Why did you choose to write military Science Fiction? Do you want to write in any other genres?

Marko:  I enjoy reading Military SF, and I figured that writing it would be fun. I also wanted to work the sensory details of my own military experience into a narrative to write a convincingly authentic piece of military fiction. (I always get a kick out of it when I get fan mail or comments from veterans who say that reading TERMS reminded them of their own service. I just love those “Yeah, that’s how it was” comments. It tells me I hit the point of aim, so to speak.)

I’ve written in other genres: fantasy and general fiction, for example. My first two novels (the trunk novels which will never see the light of day) were general fiction. I currently have a YA novel in the works which is about half-finished, and a Urban Fantasy novel that’s also roughly half done. I’m focused on the Military SF subgenre at the moment because that’s what my readers keep asking for, but I can see myself dipping my toes into other genres in the future.



TQ:  What sort of research did you do for Terms of Enlistment?

Marko:  I worked in my own memories from my military service, and beyond that, I just kind of made it up as I went along. Once the world took shape, I had to do an awful lot of internal consistency fixes and retconning, let me tell you. I envy people like Jo Rowling who come up with elaborate worlds and biographies going back ten generations before they put pen to paper for word one, but I get too lost in that sort of thing and end up using it as an excuse not to write, so I make up stuff and write it down as I need it for the story, and then iron out everything later in the developmental edits.



TQ:  Who was the easiest character to write and why? The hardest and why? Who is your favorite good guy, bad guy or ethically ambiguous character?

Marko:  I had to put myself in Andrew’s head a lot because the novel is written in first-person perspective, so he was the easiest to write and flesh out because I was able to share his thoughts and inner monologues. The hardest to write? ALL THE OTHERS.

My favorite character in the books (and a reader favorite) is Andrew’s eventual squad leader, the highly decorated Sergeant Fallon. She’s a gung-ho, hyper-competent, deeply troubled character with some dark spots in her past. She has an aversion to incompetent authority, which makes her a bad fit for the military, but she excels at what she does, so she gets away with a lot. SGT Fallon will return in LINES OF DEPARTURE in grand style.



TQ:  Give us one of your favorite lines from Terms of Enlistment.

Marko:  This one is the line most highlighted by readers on the Kindle version:

“There’s no perfect place, you know. You always end up trading one kind of shit for another. Me, I’ll stick with the shit I know.”



TQ:  What's next?

Marko:  The sequel to TERMS OF ENLISTMENT, called LINES OF DEPARTURE, will be out from 47North on January 28th. I am currently at work on the third book in the series, which will be called ANGLES OF ATTACK. I also have a new novella and a few short stories planned to tide over my readers until ANGLES comes out.



TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Marko:  Thank you for having me!

Interview with Marko Kloos, author of Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure - January 24, 2014
The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you're restricted to two thousand calories of badly flavored soy every day:

You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service.

With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth. But as he starts a career of supposed privilege, he soon learns that the good food and decent health care come at a steep price…and that the settled galaxy holds far greater dangers than military bureaucrats or the gangs that rule the slums.

The debut novel from Marko Kloos, Terms of Enlistment is a new addition to the great military sci-fi tradition of Robert Heinlein, Joe Haldeman, and John Scalzi.

Interview with Marko Kloos, author of Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure - January 24, 2014
Vicious interstellar conflict with an indestructible alien species. Bloody civil war over the last habitable zones of the cosmos. Political unrest, militaristic police forces, dire threats to the Solar System…

Humanity is on the ropes, and after years of fighting a two-front war with losing odds, so is North American Defense Corps officer Andrew Grayson. He dreams of dropping out of the service one day, alongside his pilot girlfriend, but as warfare consumes entire planets and conditions on Earth deteriorate, he wonders if there will be anywhere left for them to go.

After surviving a disastrous space-borne assault, Grayson is reassigned to a ship bound for a distant colony—and packed with malcontents and troublemakers. His most dangerous battle has just begun.

In this sequel to the bestselling Terms of Enlistment, a weary soldier must fight to prevent the downfall of his species…or bear witness to humanity’s last, fleeting breaths.
