Carolyn Crane revealed the (not final) cover for the second book in her new The Disillusionists Trilogy, Double Cross which is due out September 28, 2010.  Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy, book 1), is due out on March 23, 2010. You can check out my early review of Mind Games HERE. I like the continuity between the covers in this series, but the city background almost gives it a science fiction vibe, which is completely inaccurate. The model looks great though, and Mind Games was excellent.  I have high hopes for this one. SOME SECRETS COME BACK TO HAUNT. OTHERS… Read more »

Book Description: Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability.

Jennifer Estep revealed the cover for the third Elemental Assassin book, Venom.  This is my favorite yet.  According to Jennifer, there are lots of little clues in the cover about the plot… And you know what the best part is? The cover actu­ally fits the book. Those river­boats you see in the back­ground? Well, Gin gets on board one of them dur­ing the course of Venom. So con­sider that a lit­tle teaser for the book, which comes out Sept. 28. -Jennifer Estep
