The following list is curated here by the staff at Wildman’s  Books and contains nine upcoming books falling under the  realm of sci-fi & and fantasy. There was much debate in the  office as to whether or not to count sci-fi and fantasy as two different genres, but the debate extended too long, and with a deadline approaching, we went with a list that everyone could agree on. We hope you enjoy! 



In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life,  The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times  bestselling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de  force. 

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget. 

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes  a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be  forgotten by everyone she meets. 

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a  dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and  continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns  how far she will go to leave her mark on the world. 

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie  stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he  remembers her name. 

Rhythm of War (Stormlight Archive Series #4) – Brandon  Sanderson

The Stormlight Archive saga continues in Rhythm of War, the  eagerly awaited sequel to Brandon Sanderson’s #1 New York  Times bestselling Oathbringer, from an epic fantasy writer at  the top of his game. 

After forming a coalition of human resistance against the  enemy invasion, Dalinar Kholin and his Knights Radiant have  spent a year fighting a protracted, brutal war. Neither side  has gained an advantage, and the threat of a betrayal by  Dalinar’s crafty ally Taravangian looms over every strategic  move. 

Now, as new technological discoveries by Navani Kholin’s scholars begin to change the face of the war, the enemy  prepares a bold and dangerous operation. The arms race that  follows will challenge the very core of the Radiant ideals,  and potentially reveal the secrets of the ancient tower that  was once the heart of their strength.

At the same time that Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips  with his changing role within the Knights Radiant, his  Windrunners face their own problem: As more and more deadly  enemy Fused awaken to wage war, no more honorspren are  willing to bond with humans to increase the number of  Radiants. Adolin and Shallan must lead the coalition’s envoy  to the honorspren stronghold of Lasting Integrity and either  convince the spren to join the cause against the evil god  Odium, or personally face the storm of failure. 

Fugitive Telemetry – Martha Wells

The New York Times bestselling security droid with a heart  (though it wouldn’t admit it!) is back in Fugitive Telemetry! 

Having captured the hearts of readers across the globe  (Annalee Newitz says it’s “one of the most humane portraits  of a nonhuman I’ve ever read”) Murderbot has also established  Martha Wells as one of the great SF writers of today. 

No, I didn’t kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn’t dump  the body in the station mall. 

When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station,  it knows it is going to have to assist station security to  determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that  should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why  (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who  knew?) 

Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must  voluntarily speak to humans! 


A new standalone adventure in the New York Times-bestselling,  Hugo and Nebula Award winning series! 

Blood Heir – Ilona Andrews

From award-winning author, Ilona Andrews, an all-new novel  set in the New York Times #1 bestselling Kate Daniels World  and featuring Julie Lennart-Olsen, Kate and Curran’s ward. 

Atlanta was always a dangerous city. Now, as waves of magic  and technology compete for supremacy, it’s a place caught in  a slow apocalypse, where monsters spawn among the crumbling  skyscrapers and supernatural factions struggle for power and  survival. 

Eight years ago, Julie Lennart left Atlanta to find out who  she was. Now she’s back with a new face, a new magic, and a  new name—Aurelia Ryder—drawn by the urgent need to protect  the family she left behind.  

An ancient power is stalking her adopted mother, Kate  Daniels, an enemy unlike any other, and a string of  horrifying murders is its opening gambit. 

If Aurelia’s true identity is discovered, those closest to  her will die. So her plan is simple: get in, solve the  murders, prevent the prophecy from being fulfilled, and get  out without being recognized. She expected danger, but she  never anticipated that the only man she’d ever loved could  threaten everything. 

One small misstep could lead to disaster. But for Aurelia,  facing disaster is easy; it’s relationships that are hard. 

Ready Player Two – Ernest Cline

The highly anticipated sequel to the beloved worldwide  bestseller Ready Player One, the “ridiculously fun and large hearted” (NPR) near-future adventure that inspired the  blockbuster Steven Spielberg film. 

Kingdom of Shadow and Light (Fever Series #11) – Karen Marie Moning

MacKayla Lane faces the ultimate threat when war breaks out  between the kingdoms of shadow and light, as the #1 New York  Times bestselling Fever series races to an explosive  revelation. 

From the moment MacKayla Lane arrived in Dublin to hunt her  sister’s murderer, she’s had to fight one dangerous battle  after the next: to survive, to secure power, to keep her city  safe, to protect the people she loves. 

The matter of who’s good and who’s evil can be decided by the  answer to a single question: Whose side are you on? 

Now, as High Queen of the Fae, Mac faces her greatest  challenge yet: ruling the very race she was born to hunt and  kill—a race that wants her dead yesterday, so they can put a  pure-blooded Fae queen on the throne. 

From the exquisite, deadly gardens of the High Queen’s court,  to long-forgotten truths found in the Sacred Grove of  Creation, from the erotic bed of her enigmatic, powerful  lover to the darkest, seductive reaches of the Unseelie  kingdom, Mac’s final journey takes her places no human has  been before, and only one human could possibly survive . . . 

One who’s willing to sacrifice everything. 

His Dark Materials: Serpentine – Philip Pullman

This companion to His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust offers a tantalizing new glimpse of Lyra and her daemon,  Pantalaimon. 

The world-changing events of The Amber Spyglass are behind  them, and Lyra and Pan find themselves utterly changed as  well. In Serpentine, they journey to the far North once more,  hoping to ask the Consul of Witches a most urgent question. 

This brand-new story, a beguiling must-read for Pullman fans  old and new, is a perfect companion to His Dark Materials and  a fascinating bridge to The Book of Dust. 

The Ministry for the Future – Kim Stanley Robinson

Established in 2025, the purpose of the new organization was  simple: To advocate for the world’s future generations and to  protect all living creatures, present and future. It soon  became known as the Ministry for the Future, and this is its  story. 

From legendary science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson  comes a vision of climate change unlike any ever imagined. 

Told entirely through fictional eye-witness accounts, The  Ministry For The Future is a masterpiece of the imagination,  the story of how climate change will affect us all over the  decades to come. 

Its setting is not a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, but a  future that is almost upon us – and in which we might just  overcome the extraordinary challenges we face. 

It is a novel both immediate and impactful, desperate and  hopeful in equal measure, and it is one of the most powerful  and original books on climate change ever written. 

A Stitch in Time – Kelley Armstrong

horne Manor has always been haunted…and it has always  haunted Bronwyn Dale. As a young girl, Bronwyn could pass  through a time slip in her great-aunt’s house, where she  visited William Thorne, a boy her own age, born two centuries  earlier.

Now, twenty years later Bronwyn inherits Thorne Manor. And  when she returns, William is waiting.

As their friendship rekindles and sparks into something more,  Bronwyn must also deal with ghosts in the present version of  the house. Soon she realizes they are linked to William and  the secret scandal that drove him back to Thorne Manor. To  build a future, Bronwyn must confront the past.
