I admit to having not read Liu, although I did buy her last one, but this book sounds awesome. To quote Sybil, me want.
Marjorie Liu’s THE IRON HUNT, one of three books in the Hunter Kiss series of dark, sexy urban fantasies featuring a woman of unique powers whose body is covered in living tattoos — her own personal demons to call on when the sun goes down, who both protect her life and are destined to end it, to Kate Seaver for Ace, in a significant deal, by Lucienne Diver of Spectrum Literary Agency (NA).
I know this is completely a knee jerk reaction to the title, but eh. Love sex and glamour in the sky? I’ll pass
Marisa Mackle’s CONFESSIONS OF AN AIR HOSTESS, to Catherine Cobain at Little Black Dress, in a nice deal (World).
Sounds pretty interesting.
Winner of Japan’s Naoki Prize (with 500,000 copies sold there) Keigo Higashino’s THE DEVOTION OF SUBJECT X, the story of a shy math teacher obsessed with his beautiful neighbor — and with covering up the crime he knows she has committed, to Keith Kahla at St. Martin’s, in a nice deal, by Anna Stein at the Irene Skolnick Agency (world English).
