Cover Lover – 6 New Titles

In doing my usual cover hunt, I came across 6 more to post. Oh, and for any that haven’t heard, the big cover reveal for Veronica Roth‘s third Divergent book, Allegiant, will be done on May 9th – on the Today Show. With Ryan Seacrest. Huh.

This first cover is from Christina Henry and her Black Wings series. Black Heart will be released on October 29th.

I am not sure about this one. I enjoy Dani Harper‘s Wolf Shifter series, and I am looking forward to trying both of the new series she is starting up this fall. But this cover for the first book in the Grim series is a bit different. Not sure about the giant Mastiff or the funky tattoo, but I will be grabbing Storm Warrior when it is released on August 6th.

          In the second book of the Arcana Chronicles Evie has now fully come into her powers as the tarot Empress. And Jackson was there to see it all. In the aftermath of killing Arthur, the tarot Alchemist, Evie realizes that a war is brewing between the other teens that, following the apocalypse, have been given powers and its kill or be killed. Things get even more complicated when Evie meets Death, the mysterious, sexy Endless Knight. Somehow the Empress and Death share a romantic history – one that Evie can’t remember, but Death can’t forget. She is drawn to the Endless Knight, but is in love with Jack. Determined to discover why she’s been granted these powers, Evie struggles to accept her place in a prophecy that will either save the world, or completely destroy it.

Cover Lover – 10 New Titles

As I must say lately, I raided All Things Urban Fantasy for most of these.  I must be off my game, ’cause I didn’t find much on my own this time around.  Shana Abe will be releasing her first young adult title, The Sweetest Dark, this August 21st.

Cynthia Garner follows up her recent Secret of the Wolf with The Heart of the Demon, the third book in her Warriors of the Rift series.  It is due out later this year.

The next one is from author Tessa GrattonThe Blood Keeper is the second book in her Blood Journals series, due out on August 28th.

There has been a bit of a design change for this one.  The second book from Elizabeth Miles‘ The Fury Trilogy, Envy, is going for a bit of a softer look than the first book.  This one is due out on September 4th.

I saw this one a while back, but completely forgot about it.  Lou Morgan‘s Blood and Feathers is a July 31st release.

Next up is one from Kim Harrison.  Apparently, Into the Woods is connected to her Rachel Morgan series, as I understand it it is a collection of short stories set in that world.  It will be available on October 9th.

This one is the follow up to Suzanne Johnson‘s Royal Street, called River Road.  This one is due out on November 13th.

And finally, this one is the cover for Two Weeks’ Notice, the second book in Rachel Caine‘s the Revivalist series, due out on August 7th.
