Awesome titles coming out in July!

Ok, so let's be honest, most months have awesome books being published and/or reprinted.  But I happen to get monthly offers to review upcoming new and reprinted titles from Penguin's SF/F imprints.  I'm super excited about July's reprints, and there's some rather appealing new titles as well.

Reprints:
Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
This is a book about the triumph of difficult women, and I mean that in the absolutely best way possible.  (See full review)
The Annihilation Score by Charles Stross (also, The Nightmare Stacks is out!)
Dominique "Mo" O'Brien is having a rough time. She wields a soul-eating bone violin (that's trying to take over her will) in the service of her country, things with her husband are on the rocks, there's a sudden plague of humans manifesting superpowers, and she's expected to do something about at least the latter with the help of her husband's ex's. On top of all that, CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN (the end of the world as we know it) draws inexorably near, and Mo's suffering from a seeming cultural invisibility as a woman of a certain age. (See full review)
The Aeronaut's Windlass (The Cinder Spires #1) by Jim Butcher
Ok, so I'm making an assumption on this one, but I really like Butcher's work.  It's ridiculous that I haven't read this yet, but I've been super busy with the books I need to read for one reason or another.

New:
Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn
Aveda Jupiter is San Francisco's most adored superheroine; protecting the city from demon incursions and looking damn file while doing so.  Evie Tanaka on the other hand is perfectly happy where she is, supporting her childhood best friend and generally remaining out of the spotlight.  It's a bit of a crap job at times, with demon blood staining pricey costumes, Aveda's diva tantrums, and the joys of attempting to raise her rebellious little sister, but it's stable and Evie is good at what she does.  Then after an injury takes Aveda off her feet for several weeks, Evie is thrust into the public eye while masquerading as her boss.  From there, things start getting complicated. (See full review)

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine
This one's continuing the story started in Ink and Bone, and like book one is filled with adventure, danger, magic, and librarians.  Things are quite complicated in Jess Brightwell's life.  He and his friends may be in more danger than they've ever faced, and the danger comes from inside the Library itself.
