Mortal Heart Cover

I really don't often love photos of actual people on my covers, thank you very much. But I make an exception for Robin LaFevers' His Fair Assassin series, because it was the cover of Grave Mercy that lured me in to begin with. Well, that and the word "assassin" in the series title. And nuns. Assassin nuns. Genius, people. In any event, here is the cover for the third and final (I believe) book in the trilogy—Mortal Heart. It is Annith's story and, really, she deserves one. I have loved each of these covers, but this one might actually be my favorite because bow and arrows. And her dress. I covet it. Cannot wait to read this one. Your thoughts?

  1. I think Grave Mercy is still my fave cover of the three (because she looks so FIERCE!) but I like this one an awful lot because that is exactly what I envisioned Annith looking like. Bad ass but still kind of wide-eyed and innocent, you know? And I am DYING to find out who her love interest will be! Thanks for sharing, Angie!

    1. She really does. I love Ismae.

      Yep, this is pretty much spot on for how I pictured Annith. And how often does that happen?!

    Woah. The backdrop to this one is just as good as the girl. I am so, so very happy that they made it dark and moody and sinister. I am worried because it's the last book and wrap ups are hard and anxiety and nrrrrrrr... *cries in a corner*

  6. I love it! I definitely like that it matches the original covers more than the redesign.

  8. I just finished Grave Mercy last night, and it was great. I'm excited to read the next two.

  9. It's pretty. And it reminds me that I really have to read Grave Mercy! It was the cover that first lured me to get it (and then, the great reviews).

    This cover looks a bit Robin Hood-ish to me. But then, I do like Robin Hood! Mostly I'm just excited to read the book…really liked the first two a lot!

    1. It totally does. Which probably explains my love for it. I can just tell Annith's story is going to be an exciting one.

    The green dress, I KNOW!!! I am partial to Sybella because she is my spirit animal but this whole cover is gorgeous. I can't wait to see what LaFevers does with Annith's story.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With  anyone.  But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to  reread . This has (and I am not exaggerating) never happened to me before  in my life.  I know it happens frequently to most everyone. And I have certainly always been a mood reader. It's not in any way uncommon for me to drift from book to book, from shelf to shelf in my library, until I land upon the right thing. But that drifting tends to occur over the course of a few hours. Not ever does it occur over the course of a few days or, God forbid, weeks.  I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, yes, I am fully aware of where this problem likely rates on the triviality scale in the current scheme of

Review | The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion, Vols. 1 & 2 by Beth Brower

I feel a bit giddy finally talking to you all about this series. If you'll remember, I fell madly in love with The Q  when it came out a few years ago. Now, Beth Brower is writing The Unselected Journals of Emma M. Lion — a series of novellas set in London in 1883. Each volume is an excerpt from the incorrigible Emma's journals, and the first two volumes are already available with the third on the way soon. I think they'd make rather perfect pandemic reading. Humorous and charming down to their bones, they're just what the doctor ordered to lift your spirits in this uncertain time that just proves to be too much some days. If you're experiencing one of those days, I suggest giving Volume 1   a go (it's only 99 cents on Kindle, $4.99 for a trade paperback copy). It will surprise exactly none of you that I own print and digital editions of both volumes.  Miss Emma M. Lion has waited long enough. Come hell or high water (and really, given her track record,  both a

Bibliocrack Review | Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

Since I thought I'd start with the two most egregious reviewing gaps, you get Wayward Son next. I hope this is agreeable to all and sundry. And let's just agree not to pull any punches, shall we? I'll start by admitting that this book wrecked my life. To be clear, I am not complaining. It's just that it had been a long time, yeah? A long time since  Carry On came out. Just such a very long time since I'd been in the company of these two. And their crew. And I thought I was ready. Don't I always? Must remember to learn from past mistakes. But more than that, I wasn't thinking about the fact that of course Rainbow Rowell would create nothing less than the sequel that would naturally follow the events at the end of Carry On. Which is to say a sequel that would hurt . Because everything about what happened to Simon Snow from the beginning of his life to his graduation from Watford was designed to damage. With the shining exceptions of Penny and Baz. And so th
