 Constance Verity Saves The World
(Constance Verity, Book 2)
A. Lee Martinez
Hardcover, 400 pages
Saga Press
     July 17, 2018        
Humor, Science Fiction, 
Urban Fantasy

For Constance Verity, saving the world isn t the hard part. It's keeping her new, ordinary life from falling apart along the way that's going to be tricky.

 Constance Verity Saves the World is the next book in the witty Constance Verity trilogy, which Booklist named a Top 10 SF/Fantasy book of 2016.

Constance successfully became an ordinary person. People warned her it would be boring and they were right. That's exactly why Connie loves it. But there's an Adventurer-shaped hole in the cosmos now, and a lot of interested parties eager to fill it. Not all of those candidates are fit for the role, and if The Adventurer falls into the wrong hands, it can lead to chaos and destruction.

Constance still has all the skills of her old life, but she's no longer chosen. Yet, when the fate of the world is at stake, she sets off, reluctantly, to keep the forces of evil from stealing the destiny she abandoned.

Why I can't wait for this one!

Ohhhh......a snarky heroine?! And she kicks major butt while firing off her snarky comments? Give it to me now!! Gotta get this and devour it! And that cover looks so  intense, as well as funny! I know I'm really going to enjoy this book!! Lol.

Here's the first installment in 
the Constance Verity trilogy!!

      It SURE does!! Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)

  4. I love A. Lee Martinez, although I haven't started this series yet. Good to know book two is coming out, I'll have to catch up:-)

    1. Hi, Tammy!

      This author is completely new to me, and I'm so glad I found him! I've already added the first book, as well as this one, to my Goodreads shelves. I KNOW I'm going to love them both!

      Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)

  5. Bring on the snark! You know how much I love snark. I own the first one so now maybe I'll be inspired to pick it up...who am I kidding (as I look at the stack of library books I'm trying to work through). Thanks so much for sharing this one because I had no idea a sequel was coming out.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Yeah, snark RULES!!! I sure loved it when Jane, the protagonist of "Dread Nation", made all of those snarky comments!! Sometimes she did so while dealing with zombies, too!! Lol.

      Oh, you own the first book in this trilogy? So you DEFINITELY have to read them back to back!! YAAAAASSSSS!!!!

      If we didn't already have "The Hate U Give" for our July buddy read, I'd say, "Let's go with these two books!!|" But we can work them in later, right? I think it's a GREAT idea!! :) :)

      Thanks for commenting!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE PUPS, AND WOOF, WOOF TO THEM!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  6. Wow that cover kinda blew me away when I saw it! I love how she's fighting a snake thing w/ one hand and checking her phone with the other. :) Plus I just like that name Constance verity ha ha!

    1. Hi, Greg!

      Yeah, I LOVE that cover, too!! And yes, the fact that she's fighting off one of the snakes with one hand, while checking her cell phone with the other is just HILARIOUS!! I KNOW I'm going to enjoy this book! And I agree -- her name is SO funny, too!! Glad you liked my pick!! :) :)

      Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)
