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?

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.

We loved all 31 of these books and since we enjoyed them so much, I’m sure you will too. Which titles are on your Best of… Read more »
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….
