Cover Reveal: The White Glove War by Katie Crouch & Grady Hendrix

I enjoyed The Magnolia League for the most part, so I’ll definitely check out this sequel to see what happens. The cover matches the theme their going with, but I think I prefer the cover for The Magnolia League. What do you guys think?

The White Glove War by Katie Crouch & Grady Hendrix
Release date: July 3, 2012
Series: Magnolia League #2

Summary from Goodreads:
The members of Savannah’s Magnolia League have it all: money, beauty, power, and love. Some may call them lucky, but we know better. Spells, potions, and conjures are a girl’s best friends, and thanks to the Buzzards — a legendary hoodoo family — the Magnolias never run out of friends.

Golden girl Hayes Anderson would never dream of leaving the League or Savannah, where there’s no problem that can’t be fixed with a cup of Swamp Brew tea — served in a bone china cup, of course — and no boy who can’t be won over with a Conjure Up a New Love spell.

But when danger lurks and family secrets are unearthed, Hayes discovers that her life may not be charmed after all.

Don’t miss the second novel in Katie Crouch’s enchanting and mysterious Magnolia League series.

Cover Reveals: Until I Die by Amy Plum UK version, Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Both of these are sequels to books I haven’t read yet, but I definitely hope to read them before these two are released! I have to say I’m loving the UK cover for Until I Die, even more so than the cover for Die for Me. Same with Timepiece, like this cover more than the one for Hourglass. What do you guys think?

Until I Die by Amy Plum
Release Date: May 3, 2012
Series: Revenants #2

Summary from Goodreads:
Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world in order to join Vincent in the dangerous supernatural universe he inhabits. For his part, he has sworn to go against his very nature and resist the repeated deaths that are his fate as a revenant—even though it will bring him immeasurable suffering.

Heady with romance and rife with danger, the second book of the DIE FOR ME trilogy follows Vincent and Kate as they search—separately—for a solution to their plight, pursuing their quest from the glamorous streets of Paris to the city’s squalid underbelly. Although the experiment that Vincent attempts is progressively destroying him, he insists on seeing it through to the end. This prompts Kate to strike out on her own into the dangerous world of the revenants to find another way. But she unwittingly puts everyone she loves at risk when she discovers a family of ancient healers who hold the key to a secret that could help the bardia—the good revenants—overthrow their murderous enemies, the numa, forever.

And while the lovers search for something they have little chance of finding, a new threat arises among the numa. Kate finds herself in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, not as a bystander…but as a target.

Bitterblue will tie all three books together in some way.

Cover Reveal: Waking Storms by Sarah Porter

Lost Voices was definitely an interesting read, and my first for review through NetGalley. Since I read it back in January I’ll almost definitely reread it before reading the sequel. Here’s my review for Lost Voices. I love this cover, more than the cover for the first book. I love the idea of mermaids. What do you guys think? Do you like it? Are you looking forward to this sequel, or have you yet to read Lost Voices?

Summary from Goodreads:
After parting ways with her troubled mermaid tribe, Luce just wants to live peacefully on her own. But her tranquility doesn’t last long: she receives news that the tribe is on the verge of collapse and desperately needs her leadership. Anais, their cruel queen, wants Luce dead. Dorian, the boy Luce broke mermaid law to save, is determined to make her pay for her part in the murder of his family. And while the mermaids cling to the idea that humans never suspect their existence, there are suddenly ominous signs to the contrary.

But when Luce and Dorian meet, they start to wonder if love can overpower the hatred they know they should feel for each other. Luce’s new friendship with an ancient renegade mermaid gives her hope that her kind might someday change their murderous ways. But how can Luce fulfill her rightful role as queen of the mermaids without sacrificing her forbidden romance with Dorian?

Full of miraculous reunions and heart-pounding rescues, this haunting second installment in the Lost Voices Trilogy finds Luce eager to attempt reconciliation with humans—as long as war doesn’t break out first.

Series: A Gilded Wings Novel #1

Format: Hardcover, 544 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast. But everything begins to change when she turns sixteen. Along with her best friend Dante and their quiet and brilliant classmate Lance, she is awarded a prestigious internship in the big city— Chicago—and is sent to live and work at a swanky and stylish hotel under the watchful eyes of a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking strangers: powerful and alluring hotel owner Aurelia Brown; her second-in-command, the dashing Lucian Grove; and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons called The Outfit.

As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers a network of secret passageways from the hotel’s jazz-age past that leads her to the heart of the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls. Will they succeed in wooing Haven to join them in their recruitment efforts, or will she be able to thwart this devilish set’s plans to take the souls of her classmates on prom night at the hotel?

Illuminate is an exciting saga of a teen’s first taste of independence, her experience in the lap of luxury, and her discovery she may possess strength greater than she ever knew.

Cover Reveal: Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

Oh my gosh, Maria V. Snyder has a new book coming out and I didn’t even know about it until I saw a WoW for it?!!??!?!? I absolutely adored both the Study and Glass series, which I’ll be rereading soon for the blog, so I’m incredibly excited by this new fantasy series from her.

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.

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….

Cover Reveal: Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins

I think this is my favorite of all three covers, just because of the cat. I love cats. I still need to read Hex Hall and Demonglass, so hopefully I can do that before Spell Bound is released. What about you guys? Have you read this series yet? How does the cover compare to the others in your opinion?

Series: Hex Hall #3

Summary from Goodreads:
Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?
