[COVER ART] Lord of Misrule (UK) – Rachel Caine; Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten (CA), Stolen (CA) & Dime Store Magic (CA); White Witch Black Curse (UK) – Kim Harrison; Crimson (US) – Jordan Summers

The cover art’s really large, so hopefully I’ve fixed this properly so that it’s behind a WordPress cut. Fingers crossed I don’t screw up.

Re White Witch Black Curse: Doesn’t look like how I imaged Rachel Morgan. Did remind me of a photo of Laurell K. Hamilton, though. And Crimson: Kind of reminded me of Caitlin Kittredge.

In a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix was nearly driven insane by her powers. She lived as a fugitive, disguised as a human, channeling her gifts for war into stone-magery. When she was discovered, her friends and neighbours accepted her, but warily. Not so the mage who arrives from the Council of Seraphs, who could be her greatest ally – or her most dangerous foe. And when her long-gone sister, Rose, is revealed to still be alive, Thorn must make a choice – and risk her own life in the process.

All Megan wants is to be normal – and go to homecoming, of course. Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult when your dates keep getting interrupted by a bunch of slobbering Undead. Things are about to get even more complicated for Megan. Someone in school is using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into flesh-eating Zombies, and it’s looking like homecoming will turn out to be a very different kind of party – the bloody kind. Megan must stop the Zombie apocalypse descending on Carol, Arkansas. Her life – and more importantly, homecoming – depends on it.

As a curious six-year-old, Clayton didn’t resist the bite – he asked for it. But surviving as a lone child-werewolf was more than he could manage – until Jeremy came along and taught him how to straddle the human-werewolf worlds, gave him a home…and introduced him to the Pack. Featuring three of the most intriguing members of the American Pack – a hierarchical founding family where bloodlines mean everything and each day presents a new, thrilling and often deadly challenge. For as Clayton grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his beloved mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics – including showing his brutal archnemesis, Malcolm, who the real Alpha is…

Suzanne McLeod
The Sweet Scent of Blood (Spellcrackers.com, Book 1)
Hachette Gollancz (AU: January 2009) – Hardcover
Buy

Genevieve Taylor is a Sidhe, one of the noble fae and she’s unusual, even in present-day London where celebrity vampires, eccentric goblins and scheming lesser fae mix freely with the human population. Genny is a rising star at Spellcrackers.com, where she finds the ‘M’ in magic – and that invariably leads to mischief, malice and – too often – murder. Spellcrackers.com is affiliated to the Witch Council, whose ancient tenets prohibit any contact with vampires. Genny also works as a volunteer at a clinic which treats victims of vampire attacks. Then there’s her extra-curricular activity, extracting vulnerable fae lured by the local fang gangs. Genny certainly doesn’t want any closer involvement with the vampire community. But when Mr October, one of the hot calendar pin-up vamps, is accused of violently murdering his girlfriend, Genny’s called on to repay an old debt and prove his innocence.

US cover. I usually don’t post covers if another blog has done it first, but the lass looks like someone, but I can’t figure out whom. I was thinking Isabel Lucas, or Elisha Cuthbert, but they don’t seem quite right…Click the Buy link for the larger image.
