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!

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.
