October 2018 {New Releases}

Hey Everyone,

It’s that time again. Time to bring you the new releases for October. This is a small list compiled from some of the lesser known but brilliant authors out there.

Malasorte Castle by Julia. E Clements

Release Date: 30th September

Twelve-year-old Izzy is excited to be spending the summer holidays with her Italian grandmother. She eagerly listens to spine-tingling tales of the evil spirits that once infested Val De Monio, in awe of the Guardians who did battle with them. But when Gran tells her about a Mazzapeghoul, a wicked demon, still inhabiting Malasorte Castle, Izzy starts to doubt whether her stories are true.

When her new-found Italian friends suggest spending a night in Malasorte Castle to prove it isn’t haunted, she jumps at the chance to join them. But things start going bump in the night, and they begin to wonder if the Mazzapeghoul is more than just a local myth.

Why did the last members of the family flee the castle in 1932, leaving it empty and desolate? Can Izzy and her friends solve the puzzle and break the curse on the castle before it’s too late?

Celestial (Starstruck Book 4) by S.E. Anderson

Release Date: 9th October
Sally, Zander, and Blayde, accompanied by their new friend Nim, have only one request: no more bizarre distractions on their hunt for Earth.

But before their cells can complete a single jump, the team is shoved off course and crash into a dreary old temple. Worse yet, there seems to be some confusion over Sally’s face, as it looks exactly like that the local deity, Selena, goddess of the moon and omniscient absentee. Sally’s ticking every box on the ancient prophecies checklist.

Fresh off of her meds and riding the withdrawal, and Sally must choose between embracing the role of Goddess so as to protect the planet from mysterious Sky People, or being thrown in a Volcano. Not the best way to start a tropical vacation. It’s not going to be easy uniting warring factions, dealing with excitable whispering forests, or fighting both literal and figurative demons. Not to mention keeping up the appearance of divinity when all Sally wants is a nap.

Armed only with some high school improv’ classes and a basic knowledge of foreign pop songs, Sally must save the planet – before everything goes up in flames.

Review:

I was sent an ARC of the Future Worlds book by the Publishers. I have to admit it took me a while to pick it up as I had put it off a little as Sci-Fi isn’t really something I’ve read before and wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it, plus it felt like it took forever to read my previous book.

I was really surprised. The book comprises of small stories which I was genuinely disappointed when they finished. My favourite of the stories had to be One Man Falls by Mark. R Healy and Horizon Alpha: High Wire by D.W Vogel.

I really enjoyed every single one but those two seemed to stand out more.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone, even those who wouldn’t usually read this genre. 

The only downside to it was that the stories needes to be longer 🙂 I want to read more about all of these characters.

Yet again Future House Publishing and it’s authors have knocked it out of the park.

Thanks for reading.
