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.

WHO ELSE IS EXCITED?!!

Coming soon: Elite by Mercedes Lackey

September 6, 2016

Title: Elite

Author: Mercedes Lackey

Series: Hunter #2

Genre: Teen Fantasy

Release Date: September 6, 2016

The Overview: Joy wants nothing more than to live and Hunt in Apex City without a target on her back. But a dangerous new mission assigned by her uncle, the city’s Prefect, may make that impossible. In addition to her new duties as one of the Elite, Joy is covertly running patrols in the abandoned tunnels and storm sewers under Apex Central. With her large pack of magical hounds, she can fight the monsters breaking through the barriers with the strength of three hunters. Her new assignment takes a dark turn when she finds a body in the sewers: a Psimon with no apparent injury or cause of death…Goodreads

Mercedes Lackey strikes again!! Hunter is easily one of my favorite YA releases from the last couple of years. It had 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 it, and have been waiting impatiently all year for the next book. It has been a painful wait, but now Elite is coming out soon and I’m thrilled!
