The Looking Glass Wars: CrossFire by Frank Beddor and Curtis Clark (Automatic Publishing 19 April 2016 / $24.99) - Product Description: How does Alyss Heart of Wonderland fare after the creation of Everqueen, as described in Arch Enemy, the third volume of the Looking Glass Wars trilogy? With difficulty. Fending off political assaults from rival suit families, struggling to maintain diplomatic relations with the tribes of Boarderland, Alyss is more vulnerable than ever before. After she barely escapes an attempt on her life, no longer sure whom to trust, she aligns with controversial new allies in order to keep Wondertropolis safe and prevent havoc on Earth. And yet the fight, the battle, finds her—as it seemingly always does--and Alyss discovers that all decisions, even the right ones, have consequences.

The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks (First Second 05 April 2016 / $14.99) - Product Description: Every nation that invades the City gives it a new name. But before long, new invaders arrive and the City changes hands once again. The natives don't let themselves get caught up in the unending wars. To them, their home is the Nameless City, and those who try to name it are forever outsiders.

Kaidu is one such outsider. He's a Dao born and bred--a member of the latest occupying nation. Rat is a native of the Nameless City. At first, she hates Kai for everything he stands for, but his love of his new home may be the one thing that can bring these two unlikely friends together. Let's hope so, because the fate of the Nameless City rests in their hands.
