April 2019 New Releases To Be Excited For

I’m super excited for April — there are so many great books coming down the pipeline! In science fiction, we have the second book in Rebecca Roanhorse’s epic series, a new horror adventure from Caitlin Starling, and the sequel to Black Star Renegades from Michael Moreci. In fantasy, we have a new epic from Sam Sykes, the brilliantly named No Country for Old Gnomes from the writers of Kill the Farm Boy, and the third book in Laura Elena Donnelly’s brilliant trilogy. There’s something for everyone!
