Nightspell Cover

So it's cover central around here lately. But I can't help but post these lovely pretties as they are revealed. Today Leah Cypess brings us the cover for her upcoming companion novel to the excellent Mistwood--Nightspell. This is not a direct sequel but rather a standalone novel set in the same universe. Nightspell, like Mistwood, centers on a strong female lead. Her name is Darri and she's facing down a handful of insanely complex family issues, a land where the dead walk, and a handsome ghost prince. Um, yes please! I honestly can't wait to get my hands on it. Due out May 31st.

  4. I think it's really pretty. My only thought was that when I first saw it the N looks like an R.

  5. Ooh. Fun. I just finished Mistwood last night. It was excellent in so many ways and choked full of surprises. Thanks for posting.

    And, can I just say, that I have been going through some serious Angieville withdrawals these last couple weeks. It's a compliment. I'm just a big fan. grin.

  6. Oooh Nightspell looks gorgeous! I'm glad Leah Cypess decided to write a companion novel to Mistwood. I hope this one is just as good as her first book.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it? We a…

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
