Cover Lover – Burned, Take II

All credit for this one totally goes to Amber, who gave me the heads-up that Karen Marie Moning posted the updated cover for her next Fever/Dani O’Malley book, Burned. Not nearly as epic as the hardcover for Iced, which I thought was terrific, but it does match up with the paperback re-release. I am still looking forward to it when it comes out on January 20th.

  1. I figured since they did a new cover for iced paperback that it may match those. They should’ve sticked with the Iced Hardback theme. That looked way better. Hot guy covers are great, but this one just doesn’t do it for me unfortuately, but I’m a fan for her books, not her covers and I’m excited for Burned!!!! =)))

  2. I am not a fan of the Iced PB cover or this one. It screams ROMANCE and that’s just not an accurate description of the series.

    • I believe that is true. Like this series is in the romance section at the book store too and it’s like this is so not romance. It’s more Urban Fantasy. It’s like 95% urban fantasy. They should’ve kept the look of Iced and the fever books. Those were good covers.

    • I got a Lords of the Underworld vibe pretty strongly from this one, which is a bit of a let down after the Iced hardcover.

  3. Is this series any good? I quite liked the blurb on “Iced”, and I’m sort of up to date with all my favorite series (Psy/Changeling, Guild Hunter, Kate Daniels, Mercy Thompson, Alpha and Omega, Skinwalker, Guardians of Eternity, The Ghostwalkers, Belador, Stormwalker, etc) and now I’m looking for a new series to tackle. I am also considering Elemental Assassin…

    • I really liked it, but I am glad I read them after all five of the Mac and Barrons books were out, because the clifffhangers in some of them were brutal. I only started the series because I wanted to read Iced (and I really liked KMM’s Highlander series), but I ended up enjoying them all.

    • I’ve read a lot of the same series, Monica, and I really enjoyed the Fever series. I think you could easily get into it, and reading them now, after the first have been released, is a major plus.

  4. Thanks for the recommendation and the tip to start with the Fever series at the beginning. Although I try to guard against being influenced by covers (because the cover says nothing about the quality of the story/writing), in this case I was intrigued by the male body cover as well as the title to have a look at the blurb. The “cover” posts in this blog made me realize how much I am influenced by superficialities like covers and titles (even against my will), especially when looking for new reading material…

  5. Oh, wow! I devoured all 5 books of the original Fever series. And though I had trouble with the heroine (too young, too immature, too shallow), she did grow on me. But the Jericho Barrons has to be one of my all-time favorite dark, mysterious, alpha heroes ever. Even though some things seem incongruous on closer examination it has great world building born from a great imagination. Overall a very intense reading experience, and some hot chemistry between the hero and the heroine (even if for the most part they don’t even have sex).
    Not sure about Dani as a first person narrator in Iced, but I think I’ll check out her Highlander series, too.

    • Glad you liked them, Monika. Having the next book on hand was great so as to avoid those cliffhangers, that is for sure. I liked the intense attraction but slow build between Mac and Barrons so much you hardly noticed the lack of sex.

      Dani is a love her or hate her character, it seems. I liked her take on things, with the hope that in the next book she would be older. Not sure how that is going to go now, but I still want more Ryodan. Somehow.

      • Funny, I, too, had hoped that she would be a few years older and that there would be some sparks between her and Ryodan. Not sure I like a whole novel from the POV of a 14 year old, but I’m going to read it anyway…
