Throwdown Thursday: The Edge vs Kate Daniels

Throwdown Thursday: The Edge vs Kate Daniels

January 14, 2010 News 8

Throwdown Thursday is a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner! Last weeks Throwdown asked: Audio Magic Strikes vs. Paperback Magic Strikes? The verdict by unanimous decision was Paperback Magic Strikes. I’m sticking with Ilona Andrews again this week.  On Wednesday the new Bayou Moon cover was posted, so I thought I would maliciously pit the Edge series against the Kate Daniel series (just based on covers), like children competing for their patents love, and force you guys to… Read more »

January 13, 2010 Cover Art Coverage 1

Thanks to Doug (aka SciFi Guy) for spotting this one first.  Devon Monk posted the cover art for the 4th Allie Beckstrom novel, Magic on the Storm.  Talk about stunning.  This is easily my favorite cover in the series so far.  Check out the previous covers below, is it just me or does the model look like she’s rocking some more curves this time? Really beautiful. Cover artist Larry Rostant is amazing!

Cover Art: Web of Lies by Jennifer Estep

January 7, 2010 Cover Art Coverage 2

Jennifer Estep ( who will be here later this month for an interview and giveaway) unveiled the cover art for the 2nd book in her new Elemental Assassin series: Web of Lies today on her site.  Check out the rune on her palm.  I’m with Jennifer, well, maybe I like it even more than Spider’s Bite. This is not the final cover, although I don’t think that it will change too much from what you see here. Once again, kudos go out to the awesome Tony Mauro, who’s the artist (he also did the fantastic cover for Spider’s Bite). I… Read more »

Throwdown Thursday is a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner! Last weeks Throwdown asked: eReaders vs physical books? The verdict by split decision was physical books.  I found it interesting that everyone who owned an eReader loved it, but those of us didn’t were skeptical. I finally carved out some time to read Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews (my review will be up next week).  I was just talking with Rebecca from DirtySexyBooks about how as bloggers we… Read more »
