Gunmetal Magic Cover

I don't know about you guys, but I'm kind of bouncing on my chair right now. Ilona Andrews has revealed the cover for Gunmetal Magic--the upcoming novel in the Kate Daniels world featuring Andrea! Andrea (and Raphael) kind of rock, so the fact that she gets her own book is splendiferous in the extreme. Coverwise, I love how Andrea looks. She's got the take no prisoners/I'm the small package good things come in attitude down pat. And I always love when we get a little magic-frayed Atlanta in the background. Gunmetal Magic is due out July 31st, and I simply won't be happy until it's in my hands.

  1. I love it! I'm just finishing up Magic Burns now, and have been loving Andrea, so I'm excited to see she's getting her own book. I should be all caught up by the time it releases too.

    1. Heidi, you are?! I'm so jealous you get to read MAGIC STRIKES next for the first time. I simply cannot recommend that one highly enough.

      And I am so excited for Andrea's book. I love that this series features two such strong female characters. So often the protag's BFF is the opposite of her in every way. But in this case, they're both tough as nails, while maintaining their own distinct personalities and stories. Love it.

    2. Yes! Requested Magic Strikes from the library as soon as I finished Magic Burns last night! Everyone seems to think that's when the series gets completely awesome, so I'm really looking forward to it. I am loving the delayed gratification with this series. All of the books have been good, but I like that the characters and relationships are unfolding so slowly because they have the time. And I totally agree about two strong chicks! They each have their own strengths, but they're both strong.

    3. Delayed gratification=WIN!

  2. I'm excited for the book but I'm not the biggest fan of the cover, especially the face looks a bit weird and too photoshopped.

    1. Sabrina, the face thing is interesting. I feel like Kate's face has evolved a fair bit over the course of those covers. My favorite is the Kate on MAGIC STRIKES. I am looking forward to Andrea's perspective on Kate/Curran and supernatural Atlanta.

  3. Oh, I hadn't realized the release date was fast approaching for this one--thanks for the heads up! Andrea looks pretty badass on this cover. Can't wait. :)

  4. I am woefully ignorant of the Kate Daniels world. Apparently I need to get up to speed. *apologizes*

    1. Jessica, lol, no apology needed. I merely point you in the direction of one MAGIC BITES. Run don't walk. Urban fantasy of the finest kind.

  5. OOOOOOOhhhh. Pretty! I don't know how I missed catching this one, but I cannot wait! Andrea getting a book and getting to act all tough and ready with a gun fills me with all sorts of glee. Yipee!!

    1. Michelle, glee is the precise emotion. Cannot wait.

Review | More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer

My online book group does a Secret Santa exchange every year, and this last year mine knocked it out of the park. She sent me a copy of Brigid Kemmerer's Letters to the Lost along with the most creative accompanying letter and series of clues and mementos tied to a fictional relationship not even wholly of this world. It tied in perfectly with the book and, once I read it, her creativity and extra mile effort meant that much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and immediately sought out the companion book featuring Declan's enigmatic best friend Rev. More Than We Can Tell begins shortly after the events of Letters to the Lost and, while Declan and Juliet are in the story, it focuses primarily on Rev and a new character named Emma Blue. I was already half in love with Rev Fletcher from the glimpses we get of him in the first book, so it was in no way surprising that I fell into his story without a hitch. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, though I think it is e…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running Pennyroyal Green series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is not actually my favorite book). But I've come to believe that this sweeping eleven-book series has something for every reader. You just have to dip your toes in enough times to find your favorites. And once you do, they will become instant and confirmed comfort reads. Spoiler alert: mine are It Happened One Midnightand What I Did for a Duke. I'm sorry, Colin, but the Duke of Falconbridge, you are not. You'll be just fine, though. Madeleine ha…

Illustrated Pretties

I can't resist with these three. I love a good illustrated cover so much, and these three are not only just beautiful but include a couple of delicious retellings, a debut novel, and at least three young women who sound as fierce and determined and real as I could hope for on this International Women's Day. Put them on your calendars. I'm feeling the good feelings.

The Guinevere Deceptionby Kiersten White
This cover, you guys. This cover . . . I love it so much. And I haven't read a good Arthurian retelling in far too long. In this version, Guinevere is not at all what she seems. Summoned by Merlin to keep Arthur safe, she is a changeling who gives everything up to protect Camelot. GOOD YES GOOD.
Due out November 5th
