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!

  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!

  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.

  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 Woven first 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

Interview with Diana Peterfreund + Rampant Giveaway!

Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meani

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
