New fantasy

We have a couple of new entries in fantasy series by popular authors.

Renegade's Magic is the third installment of Robin Hobb's "Soldier Son" trilogy (after Shaman's Crossing and Forest Mage). In this book, soldier Nevare Burvelle becomes a fugitive when condemned for a murder he did not commit. On the run and shunned by everyone except Lisana, he beings to realize that the Speck magic that has caused him so much pain and despair might actually be harnessed and used for his own purposes. But what will happen to the new Nevare?

Reader and Raelynx: a novel of the Twelve Houses is the latest book by Sharon Shinn. In her fourth book set in the troubled world of Gillengaria, Shinn continues to mix up a wonderful blend of magic, mysticism and romance. The mystic Cammon has been summoned to help vet the suitors for the Princess Amalie's hand, but the pair end up falling in love instead - a love doomed by their different stations in life.
