This ​is a standalone sequel to Archangel, set 150 years later in proverbially interesting times.

In the midst of all this, Archangel Delilah is incapacitated and replaced by shy, unworldly Alleluia. Alleya must pacify the tribes, calm the weather, make Jovah hear her, forge a reconciliation with Delilah, and find her angelico in order to get married - there's a Gloria due in four months. Unfortunately, the tribes don't want to be pacified, the weather is uncooperative, Jovah is remote, crippled Delilah wants nothing to do with angels, and Alleya's mate is identified only as a "son of Jeremiah." If you're stockpiling vacation reading and love a bit of romance (or Anne McCaffrey's writing!), pop Shinn's work in the pile.

Nnedi Okorafor - A ​halálmegvető
A ​posztapokaliptikus Afrika egyik vidékén népirtás zajlik, törzsek vére áztatja a földet. Egy nő, aki túlélte a faluja földig rombolását, és akit megerőszakolt az ellenség tábornoka, a halálban reménykedve a sivatagba megy. Kilenc hónappal később azonban életet ad egy dühös csecsemőnek, kinek haj- és bőrszíne a helyi törzsektől eltérően a homokra emlékeztet. A nő meg van győződve arról, hogy a lánya más – különleges –, ezért elnevezi Onyesonwunak. A név ősi nyelven azt jelenti: halálmegvető. Onyesonwu már gyerekként rájön, hogy a fogantatása körülményei testi és társadalmi bélyeget nyomtak rá. A többiek szemében ő egy ewu, vagyis az erőszak szülötte, félfajzat és számkivetett, akiről az emberek úgy tartják, hogy erőszakos életre van kárhoztatva. Ám Onyesonwu nem átlagos ewu: már gyerekként is kezd megmutatkozni egyedülálló varázsereje. Idővel egyre jobban kiteljesednek a képességei, és amikor véletlenül látogatást tesz a szellemek birodalmába, megtudja, hogy egy nagyhatalmú varázsló próbál az életére törni. Onyesonwu először kétségbeesetten próbál elrejtőzni leendő gyilkosa elől, ám a természete ezt nem hagyja. Így elindul végül egy olyan úton, aminek a végén harcossá válhat. Hogy beteljesítse sorsát, meg kell küzdenie a természettel, hagyományokkal és történelemmel, az igaz szerelemmel és kultúrája spirituális rejtelmeivel. Egyaránt várnak rá veszélyes kihívások egy olyan jövőbeli Afrikában, ahol látszólag soha semmi nem változott – és olyan földöntúli síkokon, melyeknek a létezéséről ugyan sokan tudnak, de csak nagyon kevesen képesek járni rajtuk. Nnedi Okorafor 2010-ben megjelent és azóta korszakos jelentőségűvé vált regénye helyezte fel az afrikai tematikájú műveket az SFF műfajának térképére. _A halálmegvető_ 2011-ben megkapta a rangos World Fantasy-díjat, de jelölték a Nebulára és Locusra is, az HBO pedig már dolgozik a televíziós sorozaton, aminek George R. R. Martin a vezető producere.

Imre Viktória Anna - A ​tébolyult doktor
London, ​1867. Két évszázada lincselték meg a birodalom utolsó királyát. Az ok? Hagyta, hogy egy boszorkánymester sötétségbe borítsa a fővárost, majd átadta neki az uralkodói hatalmat. Így született meg a Brit Tanácsközösség, az okkultisták vezette diktatúra, amelyet alkimisták, mágusok és boszorkányok irányítanak, és ahol a londoniak nagy része falak közé zárt túsz. Egyre többen suttognak azonban arról, hogy új világrend van készülőben, és hogy a Tanács uralma hamarosan véget ér. Dr. Ambrose Campbell gyermekkora óta őriz egy titkot, amely nemcsak az egész életét köti gúzsba, de morzsánként fel is őrli az elméje épségét. Ez egyrészt megnehezíti a mindennapi munkáját, másrészt egyre kevesebb hajlandóságot érez rá, hogy feláldozza a Sinclair család maradékát – különösen azután, hogy személyesen is megismerkedik az egyik kiszemelt áldozattal. Mialatt Ambrose elhatározza, hogy egyszer s mindenkorra leszámol az őt kísértő szellemekkel, London hatalmi viszonyai lassan, de biztosan átalakulni látszanak. Hieronymus Bell a Tanács orra előtt vezeti tiltott ösvényre az alkimisták céhét, Leonard Spencer kettős játéka egyre veszélyesebbé válik, Philip Campbell pedig az eddigieknél is aljasabb módszerekhez nyúl, hogy elérje célját. Közösen állított csapdájuk készen áll, és türelmesen várja, ki lép bele elsőként. Épp csak azzal nem számolnak, hogy a Setét – és természetesen Lenore – ezúttal tartogat nekik néhány meglepetést.
