A Lily Among Thorns Re-release!


You guys. Today marks the re-release of one of my all-time favorite historicals! Rose Lerner's wonderful A Lily Among Thorns has been out of print (woe, desolation) ever since the Dorchester fiasco. But, happily, Samhain picked it up and re-released it in ebook form with a few minor revisions and a new cover. A paperback edition will follow next year. For the curious, you can read the prologue and first chapter here. And for the even curiouser, you can read my original review here. As I frequently remark, Ms. Lerner's characters are people I would want to know and keep in my life. And Serena and Solomon are my very favorites. 

To celebrate the re-release, Rose has posted a free tie-in short story featuring Solomon's little sister and her husband. She's also running a Lily gift basket giveaway. So be sure to stop in to check out all the fun goodies.

  1. Yay!! I think I added this to my to-read list even before I first started reading romance. Something about it just called to me and I've wanted to pick it up. Good news indeed!

  3. What is the time period of this book? The old cover makes it seem so Austen-esque, but orange dress doesn't quite scream regency era!

  4. Yes, the old cover really did give off that Austen vibe. The new cover is a bit more accurate, I think. And, you know, I mislabeled this. It's Victorian era, not regency. Solomon's brother fought in the Napoleonic Wars.

Need by Carrie Jones

First of all. How about those gold lips? Shimmery! The color of those lips does a good job of representing the glittery-but-dangerous magic in this book. Just as the pale skin of their owner conveys the tone of the story quite well: pale, cold, and creepy. I'm pretty sure this is my first pixie urban fantasy and I wasn't sure what to expect. What I did not expect was feeling like I was back inside the world of  Stephen King 's  It . But apparently if a book's got Maine, winter, and a town with a curse on it, it will always evoke the same prickly, back-of-the-neck feelings in me. And  Need 's heroine shares my sentiments.  Zara's stepdad is dead. After watching her waste away day by day, Zara's mother puts her on a plane and sends her to her de facto grandmother--her stepdad's mom Betty. Betty lives in Maine. Maine feels like another world to Zara. A world in which the every surface is blanketed in snow and the local teenagers are all track stars or foot

Bibliocrack Review: Unsticky by Sarra Manning

I'm still just a little bit protective of my feelings over this book. Do you ever feel that way after finishing a book that completely threw you for a loop (in the very best way)? I feel distinctly protective of our relationship, the book and I. I'm still mulling over the way things ended on my lunch break and as I lie in bed waiting to fall asleep. Because it took me by such surprise, and because I fell in love with it so fast and hard, I'm just not at all sure I'm ready to talk about the experience. But enough of my book reviewing eccentricities. I've held onto my feelings long enough and it's time to let them see the light of day. Because Unsticky did a bit of a number on me. This is my first foray into Sarra Manning 's body of work and I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to find out for myself what the rest of you have been going on about. For those of you not familiar with her work, Ms. Manning is known for her contemporary young adult titles, w

Review: Shapeshifted by Cassie Alexander

I do not know how Cassie Alexander manages to serve up two installments in her wonderful Edie Spence series each year, but I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Please to be continuing in this vein, Ms. Alexander! Because this series just gets better and better. And finishing Shapeshifted knowing I still have Deadshifted to look forward to at the end of this year just fills me with both gratitude and excitement. I worry about my favorite urban fantasy heroines. I worry. I am frequently forced to be away from them at times when I would really rather not leave. And when it comes to Edie, that was getting to be pretty much all the time. Her life was fairly decently fractured at the end of   the last book. I wasn't sure how she would cope with the enforced changes, and I wondered how long she would spend on the outside once things started up again in the new book. The questions that occupy my mind, you guys. You wouldn't know it to look at me, but it's a cacophon
