Magic Bleeds Cover

Here it is! The cover for Ilona Andrews' fourth Kate Daniels novel--Magic Bleeds. I am seriously aching to get my hands on this one. As you know, Magic Strikes (the 3rd Kate book) knocked my socks off and I can only imagine what the contents of the next one will do to me. What do you think of this cover? I love all the snow. And His Furry Majesty, of course. And Slayer. Ilona has written a post addressing some readers' concerns about what will happen in Magic Bleeds. She talks about trusting the author to know what's best for her characters and her world and it's just the most fabulous post. I highly recommend you go read it. In the meantime I'll just be here admiring the pretty cover and vainly wishing it was May 25th already!

  1. Oh! Oh! Oh Oh Oooooooo!

    I LOVE this cover. Great colors for the text and I just LOVE cover art with snow. Thanks for the heads up, Angie.

    I'm imagining that Ilona gets a lot of pressure for fans about Kate & Curran, but I'm totally fine---more than fine--with how it's all been working out so far and I do trust the author to write her best story no matter what happens and I won't be angry or devastated if what I want never happens.

    But I'm still hoping. ;)

    Love it! Thanks for sharing.

    I was pleased when I read Ilona's post about Kate and Curran, but I trust her (and her husband) with this series. Even if things don't work out between Curran and Kate, I really believe they'll handle in a satisfying way.

    Seeing the new cover makes me want to pull out the other books for a reread, but I have too much on my plate to allow myself that. Maybe closer to the pub date.

  4. Christine, I love it, too! The snow is such a nice effect. And I agree with you wholeheartedly. I trust Ilona and Gordon completely. But I haven't relinquished my hopes. :)

    Janicu, LOL.

    Karen, absolutely. And I'm dying for a re-read, but my copies have been loaned out to various people for what seems like forever! Must get them back. That or buy 2nd copies!

    Laura, I really, really share that hope. hehe.

  5. Oooh nice to see a cover.

    Ummm I will be the one dissenting voice and say that I'm not massively bowled over, not quite sure why. The colour scheme isn't quite doing it for me, I think. Also snow for a May release??

    On the other hand, I notice the font size for the author name is now as large as the title AND they get the Great Read Guaranteed stamp (which Patricia Briggs also had, IIRC) - all good signs!

    Despite not loving the cover, I can't wait for May :-)

  6. Li, I hear ya. The colors of the title and name aren't my favorite. Too bright and cheery for Kate. I hadn't thought about the release time, but you're right. I think it works seeing it now as we're heading into snow season.

    Good point on the good signs. This series deserves so much attention!

  7. May 2freakin5th!? Man, that's a long time! Is it just me, or do her boobs get bigger with each cover? lol

  8. I am so exicited I can't stand it! *jumps around, bites nails*

  9. Elisa, I know! Grrr. And, yes, her boobs do seem to be enlarging with each installment. Similar to the Mercy Thompson covers, they're always presented much more provocatively than I think the character would be comfortable with. Neither of my two favorite urban fantasy heroines would look or pose or dress thus. *sigh*

    Tiah, so am I!! *bounce*

  10. I love all the Kate Daniels covers.. I really like the colors on this one. I agree with you about the Mercy covers, when I'm reading I keep glancing back at the cover trying to get a feel for her, but she looks a tad bit over the top I'm positive thats not how she is dressed to work on VWs. I still love them though lol.

  11. Caitlin, definitely not. lol. I love them, too, though. The Mercy artist is really great!

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…
