Weekly Bookstore Finds – November 6, 2022

Today, we went on a trip to the local Barnes & Noble. We got some coffees, and wandered the stacks, debated on buying a new game, checked out the Legos, and found some books we’d like to buy. Here’s some of the finds we’ve added to our ‘maybe someday’ lists.

Artillerymen Series – By Taylor Anderson

Genres: Science Fiction
It’s 1847, a ship destined for the Mexican-American war gets blown off course during a storm and ends up shipwrecked on an alternate Earth. I was drawn to this one due to the mix of cannonball soldiers and dinosaurs on the cover. After looking into this series, I was surprised to see that the author, Taylor Anderson, is actually a History professor, so these books sound really promising!

The Stardust Thief (The Sandsea Trilogy #1) – By Chelsea Abdullah

Genres: Fantasy
A thief who sells illegal magic, saves the life of a prince and draws the attention of his father. He blackmails her into looking for a magic lamp. This book is sort of a retelling/adaptation of One Thousand and One Nights.

Death Troopers – By Joe Schreiber

A Star Destroyer found derelict meant for scavenge, but it goes horribly wrong. The ship is not empty, and everyone there is dead. Star Wars + Zombies? Sign me up.
