Masques + Wolfsbane Covers

I am very excited about these two upcoming releases, you guys. Instead of getting a third installment in Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega series this year, we're being treated to something different and new. Masques was first published fifteen years ago and it is Ms. Briggs' first novel. It is also the first in a series (of sorts) called the Sianim series, which includes previously published books Steal the Dragon and When Demons Walk. These are self-contained standalone novels that take place in the same world. The direct sequel--Wolfsbane--was written but never published. Until now, that is. This fall we get a repackaged, revised edition of Masques September 28th. And then, in November, we get Wolfsbane for the first time in print. And these are the new covers. All I know is that the books involve shapeshifters and a character named Wolf. Sign me up!

  1. Pretty, pretty! I am pumped for these books - I need to go ahead and read her backlist. So many intriguing titles!

  2. I've been intrigued by these books since hearing this news on her site a while back. Outside of her two newer urban fantasy series, I haven't read much of her work. I'm loving these two cover though!

  6. I love Brigg's Mercy Thompson series but I'm a little hesitant about these ones. I do love the covers though

  9. Steal the Dragon and When Demons Walk were the 2nd and 3rd books I ever read from Patricia Briggs. The Hob's Bargain was the first. I am totally excited for these books to come out! Her fantasy novels are a bit different than the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series but they are still extremely well written...exactly what I always expect from her.

  10. I'm really looking forward to these - and so cool to see the covers at last.

    I have the other two Sianim books, but being a purist about reading in order, I somehow never quite started because I knew there was a first one I couldn't get hold of. I'm not looking forward to the entire series.

  11. I've read the older Masques already..Wolf was seriously awesome

  12. Michelle, I know. I read DRAGON BONES awhile back and it was good, but I had a feeling the sequel would be even better. But it's been checked out at the library for ages upon ages. I need to just go buy it already.

    Jacqueline, yes. I think these will jumpstart my reading of her backlist. I've heard THE HOB'S BARGAIN is particularly good.

    Elisa, I know. Don't they look gooood?

    Christie, she's just great. Her writing never fails to please me.

    Heather, me too!

    BookRants, it's hard to say because it looks like these two will combine elements of her shifters books and her fantasy. So it will be fascinating to see what they're like.

    LMPreston, they really are. I love her outfit.

    Chachic, yup. I want to meet that wolf.

    Misti, which is your favorite of her fantasy novels out of curiosity?

    Kerry, oh, I completely understand. When I read that I was like, good thing I didn't start those others! lol.

    K, ooh, that is very good to hear. I can't wait.

  13. These are so pretty. Do you know who the artist is?

  14. Angie-I think I would have to say The Hob's Bargain is my favorite just because I adore the Hob. He is a great character. And his tail! I'll just leave it at that. You should read it.

  15. Oh wowzas. I love those covers. I'm not really into her Mercy series anymore, but I'm still interested in some of her past books, so these look perfect to try. I wonder who the cover artist is.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh wow! The new covers are sooo pretty! I had been thinking of reading those after reading the Mercy series, and this will be the perfect occasion! Thanks for letting us know! :D

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken's debut novel--Brightly Woven--last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here. As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Wovenfirst hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in Arizon…

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me Your Recs

Guys. We are going on a trip―a trip we have been planning for years. And it is finally happening next week! We're going to visit my parents in France, and we are taking the whole gang. Or rather, all three kids but not the dog. Who I am desperately sad about leaving and really hope he doesn't think we've up and given him to another family and proceed to forget all about us. It's just two weeks. But we've never left him that long before, and I am obviously emotional about it. Have I posted pics of Sodapop here before? I'm not sure that I ever have. Here he is on the day we got him: And here he is now in his natural habitat, which is to say in my library on laundry day: Ahem. 
The actual point of this post is to get your reading recs for the trip! I'm completely torn over which physical books to take with me. Yes, I realize most of my reading will be done on my Kindle by necessity, but I always have to have some physical copies with me. For both safety and I…

Blog Tour Giveaway | An Artless Demise by Anna Lee Huber

Today marks the release of An Artless Demise―the seventh installment in Anna Lee Huber's excellent Lady Darby mystery series. I'm happy to be participating in the blog tour with a giveaway courtesy of Berkley. This is a series I've enjoyed from the very beginning (you can read my review of the first book here). Be sure that Kiera and Gage are well worth your time, particularly if you are a fan of Deanna Raybourn or Tasha Alexander.

ABOUT THE BOOK Kiera’s return to London is anything but mundane after fleeing in infamy more than two years ago. While Kiera expected the whispers and murmurs inspired by her reappearance, she wasn’t prepared to receive a letter of blackmail, threatening to divulge the secrets of her past and implicating her in crimes she didn’t commit. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of killing people from the streets and selling the bodies to medical schools, and Kiera is a perfect suspect for their crimes―after all, she was previously married…
