Book two in the Nightshades series, Melissa F. Olson’s Switchback publishes October 24th. From the catalog copy:

Three weeks after the events of Nightshades, things are finally beginning to settle for the Chicago branch of the Bureau for Paranormal Investigation. But the brief respite from the horror of the previous few weeks was never destined to last.

The team gets a call from Switch Creek, WI, where a 20-something misfit has been arrested on suspicion of being a shade.

The suspect is held overnight, pending DNA testing, but seemingly escapes in a terrifying and bloody massacre. But is there more to the jailbreak than a simple quest for freedom?

The third book in Paul Cornell’s Witches of Lychford series, A Long Day in Lychford publishes October 31st. From the catalog copy:

It’s a period of turmoil in Britain, with the country’s politicians electing to remove the UK from the European Union, despite ever-increasing evidence that the public no longer supports it. And the small town of Lychford is suffering.

But what can three rural witches do to guard against the unknown? And why are unwary hikers being led over the magical borders by their smartphones’ mapping software? And is the European question really important enough to kill for?
