“Powell’s writing is fast-paced and fun and full of adventure. He is – ANN LECKIE, Hugo Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice on my must-read list.”
EMBERS OF WAR
GARETH L. POWELL
AFTER THE WAR, THE BATTLE FOR PEACE BEGINS IN THE
START OF A BRAND NEW SERIES FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR GARETH L. POWELL.
EMBERS OF WAR is the first in a three-part space opera from BSFA winning author Gareth L. Powell that will delight fans of Ann Leckie, Alastair Reynolds and Adrian Tchaikovsky. Beautifully plotted and paced, EMBERS OF WAR is a timely and considered look at morality and the consequences of conflict, delicately balanced with Powell’s trademark wit and warm prose to create a modern, page-turning addition to the increasingly popular space opera genre.
The warship Trouble Dog was built and bred for violence, yet following a brutal war, she finds herself disgusted by conflict and her role in a possible war crime. Seeking to atone, she joins the
House of Reclamation, an organisation dedicated to rescuing ships in distress. But stripped of her weaponry and emptied of her officers, she struggles in the new role she’s chosen for
herself. When a ship goes missing in a disputed system, Trouble
Dog and her new crew of misfits and loners, captained by Sal
Konstanz, an ex-captain of a medical frigate who once fought against Trouble Dog, are assigned to investigate and save whoever they can.
Meanwhile, light years away, intelligence officer Ashton Childe is tasked with locating and saving the poet, Ona Sudak, who was
aboard the missing ship, whatever the cost. In order to do this, he must reach out to the only person he considers a friend, even if he’s not sure she can be trusted. What Childe doesn’t know is that Sudak is not the person she appears to be.
What appears to be a straightforward rescue mission turns into something far more dangerous, as Trouble Dog, Konstanz, and
Childe find themselves at the centre of a potential new conflict that could engulf not just mankind but the entire galaxy.
If she is to survive and save her crew, Trouble Dog is going to have to remember how to fight.

PRAISE FOR GARETH L. POWELL
“Impeccably structured, with a series of cliff-hangers, but beautifully balanced between big ideas and the smaller-scale
human story. If you read only one space opera this year, it's got to be The Recollection.”
The Guardian on The Recollection
“Like M. John Harrison, but without the crushing sense of despair and ennui.”
Philip Reeve on The Recollection
“Gareth L. Powell is going to be a major voice in SF.”
Paul Cornell on The Recollection
“Gareth L Powell has got it just right … The Recollection is a joy to read.”
Geek Chocolate on The Recollection
“A justly celebrated book, innovative, filled with excitement, eminently readable.”
Adrian Tchaikovsky on Ack-Ack Macaque
“I thought that Powell’s previous novel, The Recollection, was one of the best things I’d read in ages, and Ack-Ack Macaque, though different in tone, is easily as good. It’s the most fun I’ve had with a novel in quite a long time and you need to read it too, trust me.”
Dave Hutchinson on Ack-Ack Macaque
“Powell has created a vast, thoroughly original world that is so imaginative, emotionally engaging and frighteningly real that you don’t want to leave it.”
Den of Geek on Ack-Ack Macaque
“Ridiculously readable, thoroughly entertaining, and packed full of ideas.” SFFWorld on Ack-Ack Macaque

One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Released: May 30, 2017
Read: May 2017
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Format: ARC, 368 pages
Description from Goodreads:
Pay close attention and you might solve this.
On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High's notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention, Simon's dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn't an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he'd planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who's still on the loose?
Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.
One of Us Is Lying was simply amazing! It got my attention from the very first page and continued to hold it throughout the entire novel. The author, Karen M. McManus, did a great job of hiding who the true killer really was, and only hinted it in at the very end. Usually with books where the point of view rotates between characters, I enjoy one perspective more than the others and look forward to that one in particular. But that didn't happen with One of Us Is Lying; I wanted to know more information about each character equally. This created a very enticing read and I can't wait for more people to read it!
- " These murder club meetings are becoming a regular thing. We need a new name, though."
- "It concerns me you're avoiding a promise not to murder me."
- "I don't know why it's so hard for people to admit that sometimes they're just assholes who screw up because they don't expect to be caught."
- " I guess we're almost friends now, or as friendly as you can get when you're not one hundred percent sure the other person isn't framing you for murder."
- "We could be surrounded by walking dead in the zombie apocalypse and she'd look for the bright side."
