After screwing up yesterday’s cover lover post, it looks like you are getting two cover posts in a matter of a couple of minutes…that might be spamming. But these two are so pretty, I can’t resist. This first one is yet another Sherrilyn Kenyon release, this time for next year’s Dark-Hunter book, Dragonmark. It looks like a bit of a departure from the usual design, but I like it.
Centuries ago, Illarion was betrayed– a dragon made human against his will, then forced to serve humanity as a dragonmount in their army, and to fight for them in barbaric wars, even while he hated everything about them. Enslaved and separated from everyone he knew and from his own dragon brothers, he was forced into exile in a fey realm where he lost the only thing he ever really loved.
Now he has a chance to regain what’s been lost— to have the one thing he covets most. But only if he gives up his brothers and forsakes the oaths he holds most dear. Yet what terrifies him most isn’t the cost his happiness might incur, it’s the fact that there is just enough human in his dragon’s heart that he might actually be willing to pay it and betray everything and everyone– to see the entire world burn…
And just as pretty is this next one from Maggie Stiefvater. The Raven King is the fourth and final book in the Raven Cycle, and it is due out on April 26th.
All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death. She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
Aren’t they pretty?
