Heroes at Odds Cover

Ooh, speaking of books I've been looking forward to with an unholy yearning . . . Moira J. Moore has just posted the cover for Heroes at Odds--the upcoming fifth installment in her most excellently wonderful Source & Shield series. And I have to say, this is my favorite cover since book three. It really is. Even if Taro is manfully gripping a sword. I like it, I love this series, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this book. Heroes at Odds is due out July 26th.

  1. Ah, I was wondering about the sword pose, too, but I've only read the first one so thought maybe I'd missed something. I'm hoping to read the second book soon - the first was an awful lot of fun!

  2. Have you mentioned this series before? I know that someone has a long while back that I had read about, and I'm wondering if it had been you...

    Thanks for this post - it reminded me that I really need to check this series out! It sounds like fun :)

  3. You mean Taro doesn't have blue lightning shooting from his fingertips anymore? Dang.

    Thanks for this, Angie! I needed some good news today.

    Thanks for posting this. The cover is definitely better than the last two, but I still think the series deserves more.

    I'm with KarenS, I still thinks the covers of this series don't do it justice.

  6. Yay! A respectable cover! And is that a bench-dancing Lee I spy? Very nice.

    I think she's to busy with white yellow lightning shooting from her fingertips to be bench dancing

    Thanks for the post, Angie.

    I've received an email from the editor with a copy of the cover attached, and it's easier to see. So, no, not bench dancing, though it would have been nice to see that. Also, the glowy thing next to Lee's chest is a necklace. Which isn't plot relevant. I don't care about any of the oddities or inaccuracies. I'm too relieved to have a pretty cover.

    Hello there. My name's Naomi and I've been searching everywhere for a discussion board for this book since I don't know anyone who reads this series. By the way, aren't the covers absolutely dreadful? They always make me cringe, especially the male model. Wished they had kept to the original covers. In any case, I wanted to ask a question to those of you who have already read it so *major spoiler ahead*! I know it was probably her fatigue and stress along with working so hard with magic but we never did find out why exactly she was so sick during the bit where the house was bombarded with light balls. Lee seems more tired and sickly and she kept questioning herself over why she's so emotional. Now my question is if anyone else picked up on this and wonder if she's pregnant or is this just my imagination? Also, does anyone have a theory as to why the marriage ceremony went so badly, why fate or maybe the energy of the land didn't want them to marry?


    I'll keep looking back here regularly to see if anyone's replied!

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

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
