Tomorrow is release day for Lisa Shearin's third book in the Raine Benares series, The Trouble with Demons. I am crazy excited about this one. Somehow, between reading the first book last fall and liking it okay, and reading the second book shortly thereafter and liking it a lot, and then rereading both books a few months later and loving them, I've turned into a rabid Lisa Shearin fangirl. I do not say this lightly, because I have very few authors on my (as they say) auto-buy list. I haven't even read Terry Pratchett's Nation yet, and I've been a Pratchett fan since back in the 80s when you had to mail-order his books because they weren't in U.S. book stores.
Anyway, so I'm excited about the book. It's great to be excited about a book coming out. I just wish books were released on weekends instead of Tuesdays. Don't these publishers know I work late on Tuesday nights? I'm planning a special trip to the book store tomorrow after work, which means I won't get home to read until probably close to nine, which means I'll be a zombie at work on Wednesday--because of course I'm going to stay up late to finish the book. (I thought about downloading it to my Sony reader instead of going by the store, but I want a paper copy. It's the sort of book that's perfect to shove in a pocket or purse to reread at odd moments, and I'm too careful with my ereader to let it bang around like that.)
So if you're interested in reading a fun, light, secondary world fantasy that's not epic (all of which seem to be a rarity lately, dammit), I recommend the series highly.
