In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren. It is a weekly meme highlighting the books we have received in the past week either as review copies, book we bought, books we received as gifts, or books we borrowed from the library. Here are the ones I added this past week.

Books I received for review:

1) City of Night by Michelle West

City of Night is the long-awaited second novel in The House War, the story Michelle West's avid fans have been waiting to read for over a decade. In this novel, times have becomes even more desperate within Averlaan's hundred holdings. Street children have been disappearing, theft and violence have increased, and Jewel and her den are finding it hard to make ends meet. Rath, who continues as their protector, does not heed the the warnings of the seer dreams and has become involved in something dangerous. As he learns a deadly secret, he must join with the mages of the Order of Knowledge to wage a war against a nearly unstoppable foe. He must also risk making contact with a sister he swore he would never speak to again in order to protect all he holds dear. For only within the well-guarded walls of the Terafin manse will Jewel and her comrades stand any chance of escaping the unnatural forces reaching out to claim them...

2) Waking Up in the Land of Glitter
by Kathy Cano-Murillo

One ill-fated evening, Star jeopardizes her family's business, her relationship with
her boyfriend, and her future career. To redeem herself, she agrees to participate in a national craft competition, teaming up with her best friend - Ofelia - a secretly troubled mother whose love for crafting borders on obsession; and local celebrity Chloe Chavez - a determined television personality with more than one skeleton in her professional closet. If these unlikely allies can set aside their differences, they'll find strength they never knew they had, and learn that friendship, like crafting, is truly an art form.
