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

  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!

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …
