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!

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
