Coming Soon: Apex by Mercedes Lackey

Title: Apex

Author: Mercedes Lackey

Series: Hunter #3

Genre: Teen Fantasy

Release Date: September 5, 2017

The Overview: Joy has had to make a lot of adjustments since joining the Elite Command. Always being on call to Hunt monsters with her pack of magical Hounds is something she’s used to, but the politics of Apex City are harder to get a handle on–and may pose the bigger threat. Joy already lost Josh because she couldn’t be sure whether he was more her boyfriend or a potential Psimon spy. She couldn’t risk being the weak point that would allow the powerful and corrupt PsiCorps to take down the Hunters, their chief rivals for defenders of Apex City. -Goodreads

Nik’s Notes:

Mercedes Lackey strikes again!! Hunter and Elite are easily my favorite YA releases from the last couple of years. They have interesting characters, great action, awesome fantasy elements (with a slight dystopian twist), and a storyline revolving in no small part around competition. I totally devoured them, and have been waiting impatiently all year for the next book. If you need me, I’ll be stalking the author and Netgalley for an ARC.

  1. That cover is awesome sauce! I hope the final installment is just as amazing as the first :D I have yet to read Mercedes Lackey, which is just…gah! It’s driving me crazy!! She’s even on my 2017 tbr! But I want to finish up a few series before starting her because I think once I get going, I’m going to want a Mercedes Marathon Lol


    • Isn’t it pretty!!! I love the blue – as long as they keep that, I’m good haha. A Mercedes Marathon sounds amazing haha. I may join you – there are dozens I haven’t read from her yet (including the Arrows one you have on your list). To be honest, she’s kind of hit and miss, but the ones shes a hit on are among my all time favorites. Like this series, and dragon jousters! Lots of people seem to like the arrows series at least. :)


      • You’ve definitely convinced me to try this series! I think I’ll try the audiobook, since it’s YA (I love YAs on audio!). And just the title “dragon jousters” is seriously appealing Lol. Someone at the library recommended Arrows as a good place to start with Valdemar, but my eyes are bigger than my reading time because I just want to get them all right away and start reading!! Lol

      • Yay!! Haha. And everything about the dragon jousters was appealing to me. It read like a YA at times (in a good way). :) I’ve heard the same with Valdemar, although I didn’t start there. Not sure why lol. I’m so OCD about doing things in the right order. XD and I know the feeling of wanting them all right now!!! I’m eyeballing Arrows wondering how I can work it into the 8 others I’m currently reading. I’m hopeless haha

    • I do!!!! And I’m very much a fan of that gorgeous blue – it will look awesome on my shelves haha. I hope you know how desperately I’m hoping to come across it on NetGalley haha. ;) so excited!!
