Cover Art Coverage: 11 New Titles!

April 9, 2014 Cover Art Coverage 1

  Sometimes I have hard time separating how I envision a character from how well produced a cover is, and the Mercy Thompson series is a great example of this.  I think they’re gorgeous covers, colorful and eye-catching, but Mercy hasn’t really looked like herself since MOONCALLED.  Are there any covers you love despite the mismatch with the series?  If you’re a blogger interested in joining in on the commenting fun, fill out our Guest Commentator form here!

  There are some cover reveals that make me happy, regardless of what the cover actually looks like (for example, Kate Daniels books could come wrapped in brown paper and I’d turn ponderous cartwheels all the way to the checkout counter), but for new series and authors, the cover is often critical to catching my eye.  Which of these covers caught yours?  If you’re a blogger interested in joining in on the commenting fun, fill out our Guest Commentator form here!

Early 5bat! Review: Magic Rises (Kate Daniels #6) by Ilona Andrews

Early 5bat! Review: Magic Rises (Kate Daniels #6) by Ilona Andrews

July 19, 2013 Review 10 ★★★★★

I’ve run out of awesome things to say about the Kate Daniels series, but fortunately Ilona Andrews hasn’t run out of writing books that make me want to say them. MAGIC RISES is the latest and one of the greatest books featuring the deadly smart and brilliantly lethal Kate Daniels who this time leaves her magically mucked up Atlanta, braves a monster invested ocean, for a castle full of homicidal shapeshifters on an island in the Black Sea.

View all the Paranormal Picks posts Julia’s 12 Best Books of 2012 It’s a lot of fun looking back over the year and revisiting my favorite books, and it will be no surprise to know that Abigail and I overlapped in a few places.  Sophie Littlefield’s HORIZON, Ilona Andrews’s GUNMETAL MAGIC, Karen Marie Moning’s ICED, Kresley Cole’s POISON PRINCESS, and Maggie Stiefvater’s THE RAVEN BOYS all could have made it on my list as well, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to nod towards Abigail’s post and then fill out my list with twelve additional books that I loved this year….
