May Book Club Meets Urban Fantasy

As you can tell from the title, this May, The Island Library Bookclub goes all urban fantasy. Your bookish hosts have selected not one, but two new release urban fantasy and sci-fi reads that we'll be meeting for on the 30th May.

THE CITY WE BECAME


A new novel by N.K Jemisin, and the first in the series, this New York Times bestseller is about to rock your world.


Five New Yorkers must band together to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisin.

Every city has a soul. Some areas ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City?

She's got five.

But every city also has a dark side.

A roiling, ancient evil stirs beneath the earth, threatening to destroy the city and her five protectors unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.

THE STRANGER TIMES


A new release by C.K McDonnell, this book with mysteries and the 'Stranger Things' vibe, will have you desperate to buy.


There are Dark Forces at work in our world (and in Manchester in particular) and so thank God The Stranger Times is on hand to report them.

A weekly newspaper dedicated to the weird and the wonderful (but more often the weird) of modern life, it is the go-to publication for the unexplained and inexplicable . . .

At least that’s their pitch.

The reality is rather less auspicious. Their editor is a drunken, foul-tempered and-mouthed husk of a man who thinks little (and believes less) of the publication he edits, while his staff are a ragtag group of wastrels and misfits, each with their own secrets to hide and axes to grind. And as for the assistant editor . . . well, that job is a revolving door – and it has just revolved to reveal Hannah Willis, who's got her own set of problems.

It’s when tragedy strikes in Hannah’s first week on the job that The Stranger Times is forced to do some serious, proper, actual investigative journalism.

What they discover leads them to a shocking realisation: that some of the stories they’d previously dismissed as nonsense are in fact terrifyingly, gruesomely real.
