Cover Love

Here’s another bunch of new covers I stumbled upon in the last days, hopefully some of them will me new to you as well!

First stop is a book I’m really anxious to get my hands on! It’s the beginning of a new series by Maria V Snyder, and it’s called Touch of Power.


Laying hands upon the injured and dying, Avry of Kazan assumes their wounds and diseases into herself. But rather than being honored for her skills, she is hunted. Healers like Avry are accused of spreading the plague that has decimated the Territories, leaving the survivors in a state of chaos.

Stressed and tired from hiding, Avry is abducted by a band of rogues who, shockingly, value her gift above the golden bounty offered for her capture. Their leader, an enigmatic captor-protector with powers of his own, is unequivocal in his demands: Avry must heal a plague-stricken prince—leader of a campaign against her people. As they traverse the daunting Nine Mountains, beset by mercenaries and magical dangers, Avry must decide who is worth healing and what is worth dying for. Because the price of peace may well be her life...

Release date: December 20th, 2011.

I prefer the UK cover BY FAR, If you live in the UK and would be willing to pre-order that one from book depository for me (I’ll pay you with paypal) then please email me (tyngauf(a)gmail.com)!


Up next is Persephone Alcmedi #5, by Linda Roberston, Wicked Circle!

The fifth in the exciting urban fantasy series featuring Persephone Alcmedi, a modern-day witch with a sexy werewolf boyfriend.

Persephone Alcmedi has helped her waerewolf lover Johnny unlock his powers. Now she must come to the aid of Menessos, the vampire overlord she has secretly marked. Beset by a trio of truth-seeking vampire sisters so dangerous their own kind keep them confined in stone, he now needs her more than ever...and she realizes her need for him. Seph has magical promises to fulfill for the waeres, multiple mundane family challenges to meet, vampire politics to confront, both the supernatural males in her life to balance, a dragon to deal with...and then a government investigator shows up to complicate matters.

Release date: December 27th, 2011

Now onto, Horizon by Sophie Littlefield, the third book in the Aftertime series!

Horizon (Aftertime, #3)

No description available for that one just yet, but it’s scheduled for release on January 24th, 2012.


Here’s another series I follow, even though I’m not up-to-date, the sixth installment in the Jill Kismet series, Angel Town by Lilith Saintcrow. 


Jill Kismet is back from the grave in this explosive conclusion to Lilith Saintcrow's urban fantasy series.

She wakes up in her own grave. She doesn't know who put her there, she doesn't know where she is, and she has no friends or family.

She only knows two things: She has a job to do: cleansing the night of evil. And she knows her name.

Jill Kismet.

Release date: October 25th, 2011.



I’m almost done! Now it’s By A Thread by Jennifer Estep, the sixth book in the Elemental Assassin series!

By a Thread (Elemental Assassin, #6)Gin Blanco never thought she’d need a vacation from being an assassin. But a few weeks ago, she killed Mab Monroe, her nemesis and the most powerful Fire elemental in Ashland. Now, all the city’s lowlifes are trying to make a name for themselves by taking out the Spider. So she heads south to a swanky beach town, along with her baby sister, Bria, for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when an old friend of Bria’s is threatened by a powerful vampire with deadly elemental magic, it looks like Gin will have to dig the silverstone knives out of her suitcase after all. But this time, her special powers might not be enough to prevent her from coming home in a pine box…

Release date: February 28th, 2012.

For some reason, this one is my favorite in the series. I just love her expression!

And last, but certainly not least, we finally get to see the cover of Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent by Veronica Roth and I’m DYING to read that book!


I think it looks great!

No description available yet, but we can expect this book in 2012!

  1. OMG, OMG I love the cover for Insurgent! Love it!!

  2. I've only read one of Maria's books so far (Poison Study) and it was amazing. I really need to read more, more, more, starting with the other two books in the Study Series.

    I like the US cover (that's the one on the left, yes?) it just seems all the more striking. The composition with the profile and the scenery beyond is mesmerising.

    Thank you so much for sharing all these awesome covers! I agree with Mrs. Q, that the cover for Insurgent is stunning. I haven't read the first novel yet, although I've heard nothing but brilliant things about it. I think if its cover had been as striking as the sequel, I would have snatched it up right away.

  3. Wow loving the Touch of Power covers, they are so different but amazing. I love the colours in the US edition but the image and effects in the UK edition have a lot more pow xD. I am also loving the covers for Insurgent (much more than Divergent) and By a Thread.

    I am not loving the Horizon cover as much as the first two covers in the series though. I am guessing the hopeful feel is reflecting the mood of the third book - instead of ominous mist/fog we have a clear path ahead of us but, one it reminds me too much of the Mockingjay cover (with the colour scheme and the bird in the foreground) and two I think it would have been better if it looked like the model was walking away from the camera and moving on instead of just posing in the middle of the road. But I suppose she is no longer moving because she's found what she is looking for hmm...I think its the pose I don't like the most.

    Thank-you so much for sharing!

  4. @Mrs Q Me too ^^ The waiting is even worst because of it!

    @Keri I haven'T read any of Maria's books yet though I own them all, I really need to get started and you MUST get Divergent! One of my favorite read in a long time. YOu won't be disapointed =)

  5. I can't wait for Snyder's new series even though I haven't read any of her books yet. I prefer the UK cover too. Why don't you order it from Book Depository?
