Avid readers are always looking for something new to read, but most of us tend to stay within our favorite types of fiction – thrillers, historical fiction, or romances, to name just a few. But why not “read outside the box” and try something different? Our new fiction section offers some great opportunities to do just that. Consider one (or more) of these new fiction titles: Babylon's Ashes, by James S. A. Corey (science fiction); Blood Vow, by J. R. Ward (paranormal fiction); The Fate of the Tearling, by Erika Johansen (fantasy fiction); Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, by Anne Rice (paranormal fiction); and Star Wars, Catalyst: a Rogue One Novel, by James Luceno (science fiction).
