¿Dónde están ahora el caballo y el caballero? ¿Dónde está el cuerno que sonaba? ¿Dónde están el yelmo y la coraza, y los luminosos cabellos flotantes? ¿Dónde están la mano en las cuerdas del arpa y el fuego rojo encendido? ¿Dónde están la primavera y la cosecha y la espiga alta que crece? Han pasado como lluvia en la montaña, como un viento en el prado; los días han descendido en el oeste en la sombra de detrás de las colinas. ¿Quién recogerá el humo de la ardiente madera muerta, o verá los años fugitivos que vuelven del mar?

Esta es nuestra

de fantasía

Dícese de tener la espa-
da a mano
y el hechizo aprendido, abrir la puer-
ta a ganzúa, recorrer las mazmorras, enfrentarse al troll, al gnoll y al conjurador de la torre. Encontrar la biblioteca del nigromante y aprender sus antiguos y preciados conjuros escritos en lengua dracónica.
Explorar un universo imaginario...
o quizá no.

Jackson ambientada pocos años antes de la Guerra de la Independencia de los Estados Unidos con un toque de fantasía, o la novela romántica de corte fantástico de Freda Warrington Midsummer Night.

Pitts, Forged in Fire, una herrera convertida a cazar los dragones que secretamente habitan nuestro mundo, o la aventura de piratas de Alex Bledsoe Wake of the Bloody Angel.

Más información de las novedades, como siempre, a continuación:

Thieftaker, de D. B. Jackson. Edición en tapa dura, 336 páginas, 24,99 dólares. Género: Fantasía. Serie: The Thieftaker Chronicles/1 (de 2).

Boston, 1767: In D.B. Jackson's Thieftaker, revolution is brewing as the British Crown imposes increasingly onerous taxes on the colonies, and intrigue swirls around firebrands like Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty. But for Ethan Kaille, a thieftaker who makes his living by conjuring spells that help him solve crimes, politics is for others…until he is asked to recover a necklace worn by the murdered daughter of a prominent family.

Suddenly, he faces another conjurer of enormous power, someone unknown, who is part of a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of power in the turbulent colony. His adversary has already killed—and not for his own gain, but in the service of his powerful masters, people for whom others are mere pawns in a game of politics and power. Ethan is in way over his head, and he knows it. Already a man with a dark past, he can ill afford to fail, lest his livelihood be forfeit. But he can't stop now, for his magic has marked him, so he must fight the odds, even though he seems hopelessly overmatched, his doom seeming certain at the spectral hands of one he cannot even see.

Midsummer Night, de Freda Warrington. Edición en bolsillo, 592 páginas, 7,99 dólares. Género: Fantasía. Serie: Independiente.


From Freda Warrington comes Midsummer Night, a sensuous, suspenseful modern fantasy of love, betrayal, and redemption.

Decades ago, in a place where the veil between our world and the world of the Aetherials—the fair folk—is too easily breached, three young people tricked their uncle by dressing as the fey. But their joke took a deadly turn when true Aetherials crossed into our world, took one of the pranksters, and literally scared their uncle to death.

Many years later, at the place of this capture lies a vast country estate that holds a renowned art facility owned by a visionary sculptor. One day, during a violent storm, a young woman studying art at the estate stumbles upon a portal to the Otherworld. A handsome young man comes through the portal and seeks shelter with her. Though he can tell her nothing of his past, his innocence and charm capture her heart. But he becomes the focus of increasingly violent arguments among the residents of the estate. Is he as innocent as he seems? Or is he hiding his true identity so that he can seek some terrible vengeance, bringing death and heartbreak to this place that stands between two worlds? Who is this young man?

The forces of magic and the power of love contend for the soul of this man, in this magical romantic story of loss and redemption.

Orion and King Arthur, de Ben Bova. Edición en tapa dura, 384 páginas, 25,99 dólares. Género: Ciencia-ficción. Serie: Orion/6.


Orion has fought across time and space at the whims of his Creators, godlike beings from the future who toy with human history like spoiled children playing with dolls. Orion has been both assassin and hero, all the while striving to be reunited with Anya, the ageless goddess who is his one true love.

Now Orion finds himself in Britain in the years after the Romans abandoned the island kingdom. Minor kings and warlords feud among themselves even as invading hordes threaten to sweep over the land. There Orion befriends a young warrior named Arthur, who dreams of uniting his quarreling countrymen and driving the invaders from their lands. Along with a few brave comrades, Arthur hopes to the stem the tide of barbarism and create a new era of peace and prosperity.

But Orion’s Creator, Aten, has other plans for the timeline. Arthur’s noble ambitions interfere with Aten’s far-reaching schemes to reshape history to his own ends. He wants Arthur dead and forgotten—but Orion does not.

Orion will battle the gods themselves to see that Arthur fulfills his destiny. But can even he save Arthur from the tragedy that awaits him?

Orion and King Arthur is a thrilling new chapter in Ben Bova’s unforgettable cosmic saga.

Wake of the Bloody Angel, de Alex Bledsoe. Edición en rústica, 352 páginas, 14,99 dólares. Género: Aventuras, piratas. Serie: Independiente.


Twenty years ago, a barmaid in a harbor town fell for a young sailor who turned pirate to make his fortune. But what truly became of Black Edward Tew remains a mystery—one that has just fallen into the lap of freelance sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse.

For years, Eddie has kept his office above Angelina’s tavern, so when Angelina herself asks him to find out what happened to the dashing pirate who stole her heart, he can hardly say no—even though the trail is two decades old. Some say Black Edward and his ship, The Bloody Angel, went to bottom of the sea, taking with it a king’s fortune in treasure. Others say he rules a wealthy, secret pirate kingdom. And a few believe he still sails under a ghostly flag with a crew of the damned.

To find the truth, and earn his twenty-five gold pieces a day, Eddie must take to sea in the company of a former pirate queen in search of the infamous Black Edward Tew…and his even more legendary treasure.

KOP Killer, de Warren Hammond. Edición en tapa dura, 336 páginas, 25,99 dólares. Género: Ciencia-ficción, thriller. Serie: Independiente.

KOP Killer, a darkly dystopian science fiction thriller from Warren Hammond

Juno Mozambe once had a life. That was when he was a dirty cop, married to a woman who suffered such profound abuse that she murdered her vile, drug kingpin father. Juno loved his wife and did his best to help her survive her guilt, her drug habit, and her desire to end her life on the dead-end planet of Lagarto.

When she died, however, Juno’s life went downhill. And then his first partner, the corrupt chief of the Koba Office of Police, was murdered. The man responsible, Emil Mota, is using the KOP for his personal gain. Juno has been laying low, but now he’s ready to do whatever it takes to take down the bastard.

Rather than working from inside the system, he’s decided that the only way to take down the KOP is to create an independent base of power. So he gets involved with a team of dirty cops and starts working as a rent-a-thug for a whorehouse that needs protection.

Juno’s last partner knows that his risky plan has a purpose, but she’s that rarest of creatures on the hothouse planet of Lagarto: an honest cop. She can’t help him.

When Juno discovers a series of profoundly twisted murders, he faces a bleak possibility: in his desperate quest for vengeance against the man who targeted him for death, Juno may have placed himself beyond any hope of redemption.

The Coldest War, de Ian Tregillis. Edición en bolsillo, 352 páginas, 25,99 dólares. Género: Ciencia-ficción. Serie: Independiente.


In Ian Tregillis' The Coldest War, a precarious balance of power maintains the peace between Britain and the USSR. For decades, Britain's warlocks have been all that stands between the British Empire and the Soviet Union—a vast domain stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the shores of the English Channel. Now each wizard's death is another blow to Britain's national security.

Meanwhile, a brother and sister escape from a top-secret facility deep behind the Iron Curtain. Once subjects of a twisted Nazi experiment to imbue ordinary people with superhuman abilities, then prisoners of war in the immense Soviet research effort to reverse-engineer the Nazi technology, they head for England.

Because that's where former spy Raybould Marsh lives. And Gretel, the mad seer, has plans for him.

As Marsh is once again drawn into the world of Milkweed, he discovers that Britain's darkest acts didn't end with the war. And while he strives to protect queen and country, he is forced to confront his own willingness to accept victory at any cost.

Forged in Fire, de John A. Pitts. Edición en bolsillo, 432 páginas, 26,99 dólares. Género: Fantasía urbana. Serie: Forged in Fire/3 (de 3).


Sarah Jane Beauhall, the blacksmith turned dragon slayer, has it all figured out—little things like dealing with the political intrigue of dragons who secretly run our world, and learning to wield the magic that she has been given by none other than Odin, who has been fighting the dragons for millennia. And then there is the matter of coming to terms with who she is…and how to build a life with her partner, Katie.

All these things are forced into the background however when a magic-wielding serial killer starts prowling the Pacific Northwest. And all of his victims have ties to Sarah.

Sarah must unravel the web she finds closing around her as a powerful necromancer and a crazed blood cult known as the Dragon Liberation Front work to tear apart everything she holds dear.

Forged in Fire is the third volume in J. A.Pitts's compelling urban fantasy series.
