To Be Continued . . . in 2015
Posted by Stephanie Whelan
In addition to the new 2015 series and stand-alone titles coming out, there are the ongoing series. These are books that are second, third or more in a series.
The Mad Apprentice by Django Wexler (Kathy Dawson, Expected Publication April 2015)
The second title in The Forbidden Library series. This is a creepy form of book magic, but with a great cat character who is a part of the story. I’m curious to see where the second books takes readers . . .
The Stolen Moon by Rachel Searles (Feiwel & Friends, Expected Publication, January 2015)
Second book in the wild space-operatic Chase Garrety series. Things just seem to go from bad to worse for this kid . . .
The Inquisitor’s Mark by Dianne K. Salerni (HarperCollins, Expected Publication January 2015)
Looking forward to the second book in The Eighth Day series. This Arthurian contemporary fantasy caught me by surprise last year–hope the second book is just as good.
The Forgotten Sisters by Shannon Hale (Bloomsbury, Expected Publication March 2015)
Third book in Hale’s Princess Academy though I’m not sure it this one will wind up in YA or children’s. I’m curious to see where the story leads.
A Plague of Bogles by Catherine Jinks (HMH Books, Expected Publication January 2015)
The second book in the Bogle series. This time, the bogles are coming up everywhere in one sector of the city, our intrepid heroes must figure out what’s causing it.
The Ire of Iron Claw by Kersten Hamilton, illustrated by James Hamilton (Clarion, Expected Publication, July 2015)
The first Gadgets and Gears book was a charming bit of steampunk set stateside. The second book promises to be more of the same.
Stormbound by Jennifer Lynn Alvarez (HarperCollins, Expected Publication April 2015)
Second book in the new The Guardian Herd series. Drama, politics and adventure involving a society of winged horses.
The Boy Who Lost Fairyland by Catherynne M. Valente (Feiwel and Friends, Expected Publication March 2015)
Looks like the author’s Fairyland series is slated to go on for quite a bit yet! But at least we seem to have another character to explore with . . .
The Fork-Tongue Charmers by Paul Durham (HarperCollins, Expected Publication March 2015)
Given that the first book was one of the better fantasy stories set in a completely other world, the second book of The Luck Uglies series is on my must read list for this year.
The Magician’s Dream by Shawn Thomas Odyssey (Egmont, Expected Publication June 2015)
Book three in the Oona Crate Mysteries series. The stories are bound to be fun read for fantasy lovers and mystery readers alike!
Jinx’s Fire by Sage Blackwood (Katherine Tegen, Expected Publication March 2015)
The third and final book in the Jinx trilogy. This eco-fantasy and coming of age story has garnered a lot of interest and readers–here’s hoping the conclusion is a satisfying one!
Smek for President by Adam Rex (Disney-Hyperion, Expected Publication February 2015)
It’s been awhile, and I wasn’t even anticipating a sequel, but it looks like Adam Rex has the next Smek book this year! I won’t say no to revisiting Tip and J-Lo, though do wonder where this book will take us.
I have two books I’m waiting for that I’ve yet to have a cover to add:
The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz (Disney-Hyperion, Expected Publication, September 2015)
The second book in the author’s Hook’s Revenge series chronicling the adventures of Captain Hook’s daughter as she figures out her own identity in Neverland.
The Hollow Boy by Jonathan Stroud (Disney-Hyperion, Expected Publication September 2015)
Loved the first two books, I eagerly await the third Lockwood & Co. book this fall.
What series books are you waiting to read?
