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!

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
