First off I got these two lovely books, War of the Spider Queen Volume 1 & 2 from Wizards of the Coast. I'm a big fan of Forgotten Realms and absolutely love the Drizzt series that R.A. Salvatore has created. Can't wait to see what Bob and the other authors have in mind for the Drows of the Underdark.
While on the topic of Dark Elves, check out this book called Waiting Game by J.L. Ficks and J.E. Dugue. This is story about a Dark Elf assassin living amongst humans. I know there's some similarities with the Forgotten Realms series but the author assures me that they are in fact very different.
Be sure to check out their website too (http://www.chroniclesofcovent.com/). It is one of the most detailed and interactive website I have seen for a book series. I guarantee you will loose yourself for hours on that website.
Caged View is a prequel to Kenya Wright's Fire Baptized (Click here to read my review). This book contains a series of short stories told from the view point of each the main characters in Fire Baptized as well as one new character from the upcoming YA novel Chameleon. You can grab this for free at Smashwords. Also Fire Baptized is available for free on Amazon till the 18th March.
Finally there's Spirits of Glory by Emily Devenport. This is a YA SciFi story about a girl's journey to uncover the reason for the disappearance of the people of the South.
I still have plenty of independently published books that I have to catch up on. So I might have to declare April to be an Indie month for me.
