B&N Top SFF Picks: The Skull Throne

Posted by Meg

Not only are there some awesome books coming out this year, there are a bunch of exciting SFF books debuting this month! B&N shares their top picks for March with a variety of exciting, adventurous books. You can check out the full list here, which includes books by awesome authors Gail Carriger, Anne Bishop, Genevieve Valentine, George R.R. Martin (re-release of A Dance with Dragons), and the late, great Terry Pratchett. Plus an exciting debut from Alan Smale.

The Skull Throne US Cover

The Skull Throne stands in good company. Here’s what B&N said about the fourth installment in the Demon Cycle:

With the first three novels in the Demon Cycle, about a world where unspeakable creatures hunt in the night and only powerful shamans covered in magical tattoos dare to venture out after dark, Peter V. Brett built a reputation as one of the most exciting new voices in epic fantasy. The long-awaited fourth volume raises the stakes in every way. Events of the previous books have left the Skull Throne of Krasia empty, and its widowed queen, Inevera, must keep the peace between her sons (and potentials heirs), lest their squabbling erupt into an all-out civil war. To the north, two heroes attempt to unite disparate cities against Krasia before it can gather its strength. And all the while, the night-stalking corelings are growing ever more numerous, and ever more powerful. Filled with visceral action and characters who exist in shades of grey, this is mature, modern epic fantasy.

You can check out all of Peat’s 2015 tour dates in the Appearances section. You can also RSVP on Facebook to all events!

The Skull Throne will be released on March 31st in the U.S. and April 9th in the U.K. and Australia with translations to follow. Pre-order the U.S. edition today!
