She’s back each Tuesday, pimpin’ out notable new releases to place on your radar, so let the tempting plot descriptions begin!
STAR WARS: FATE OF THE JEDI: VORTEX by Troy Denning — In a stunning turn of events, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, joined forces with members of the Sith armada sent to kill them — and turned their combined might against the monstrous being Abeloth. But with one menace dealt with, a new and even more insidious threat looms. Now Luke and Ben must go on the run, taking along the inscrutable — and ever dangerous — Sith apprentice Vestara Khai. With a host of Sith warriors in hot pursuit, the Skywalkers soon find themselves trapped on the moon Pydyr, caught between their former allies and a mob of angry Fallanassi. A new truce may be their only hope. But can a Sith ever be trusted?
THE CASTINGS TRILOGY by Pamela Freeman — A thousand years ago, the Eleven Domains were invaded and the original inhabitants were driven onto the road as Travelers, belonging nowhere, welcomed by no one. Now the Domains are governed with an iron fist by the Warlords, but there are wilder elements in the landscape that cannot be controlled and that may prove the Warlords’ undoing. Some are spirits of place — of water and air and fire and earth. Some are greater than these. And some are human. This 1,280-page omnibus edition includes all three novels — BLOOD TIES, DEEP WATER and FULL CIRCLE together for the first time.
BLACK WOLF by Dale Brown and Jim DeFelice — The warriors of Dreamland have moved on. Some, like Breanna and Zen Stockard, to positions of power and influence; others, like Danny Freah and Nuri Lupo, into Whiplash, a cutting-edge combination of brain and brawn. Tasked by the President to handle the country’s most deadly and sensitive jobs, the elite SpecWarfare unit marries muscle to technological prowess.
But can even Whiplash stand up to a covert Russian army of genetically enhanced assassins known only as the Wolves? Danny stumbles on an even darker and deadlier secret: One Wolf, the most ferocious of all, comes from the heart of Dreamland itself. And Danny saw him die more than a decade before.
THE SENTINELS: STONE OF TYMORA, BOOK III by R.A. Salvatore and Geno Salvatore — After dueling with a dragon and a demon, Maimun knows he must destroy the stone that has kept him on the run for most of his life. The question now is how.

Lost secrets come to light. And deep in the shadows, the sentinels are watching, scheming to save the stone — even if it means someone must die. This is the conclusion to the “Stone of Tymora” trilogy by best-selling author R.A. Salvatore and his son.
