Fragile Spirits by Mary Lindsey, Cover Reveal

I love my Texas Authors, and today I'm thrilled to be apart of the cover reveal for Texas author Mary Lindsey's FRAGILE SPIRITS, the next installment in the Shattered Souls series.

Check out this cover!

About the book:

Paul has always known he was a Protector, fated to serve a Speaker who could hear the voices of spirits lingering after death and help those souls find peace.

Vivienne ignores the voices of the dead.

Paul has always followed the Protector’s rule book, preparing diligently for the day when he’d be matched with his Speaker and fulfill his destiny.

Vivienne never does what she’s told.

So when Paul is matched with Vivienne, they both find the pairing less than satisfactory. But a kidnapping, a malevolent spirit and power stronger than both of them may just prove that they are two halves of the same whole.

In a stunning story about the beauty of fate and the power of secrets, Mary Lindsey returns to the world of Shattered Souls with a breathtaking thrill-ride of a novel.

What do you guys think? Don't forget to add this to your TBR lists on Goodreads.

The Bane Chronicles: Vampires, Scones & Edmund Herondale by Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan is out TODAY!

The next installment to The Bane Chronicles, which is written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson is out TODAY!

The third installment to The Bane Chronicles is out today! Here is what this installment is about:

Magnus Bane leverages his alliances with Downworlders and Shadowhunters on a venture to Victorian London.

When immortal warlock Magnus Bane attends preliminary peace talks between the Shadowhunters and the Downworlders in Victorian London, he is charmed by two very different people: the vampire Camille Belcourt and the young Shadowhunter, Edmund Herondale. Will winning hearts mean choosing sides?

Fans can get this ebook book addition on various ebook devices. You don't need to have an actual iPad, Nook or Kindle to get this. Any download the FREE kindle reading app to some phones, tablets and computers. I have a kindle, but I use the kindle app on my phone and it works great. You will need an Amazon account in order to set up the kindle app though. 

I'm eager to see what the full cover for The Bane Chronicles will look like. With each installment's release we get a little bit more of the cover. Come December 2013 we'll get our last puzzle piece and see what the cover looks like. Here's what we've seen so far with the three releases:

I can't wait for next year's release of the physical book for The Bane Chronicles!


ALSO out today is The Mortal Instruments Companion. This is an UNAUTHORIZED GUIDE by Lois H. Gresh

About the book:
The Mortal Instruments Companion, a must-read guide to the wildly popular Mortal Instruments series, is a terrific gift for the millions of fans both young and old—especially with the Sony Pictures film version of City of Bones, the first book in the series, hitting theaters in August 2013.

Written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Twilight Companion and The Hunger Games Companion, the book takes fans deeper into the world of the Shadowhunters created by Cassandra Clare—a gritty urban fantasy world full of demon hunters into which Clary Fray, a Brooklynite previously unaware of the magical world, is suddenly and inexplicably pulled.
The Mortal Instruments Companion includes fascinating background facts about the action in all six books, a revealing biography of the author, and amazing insights into the series’ major themes and features—from the nature of evil and the Downworlders, to the power of the Sight, to the Mortal Instruments themselves. It’s everything fans have been hungering for since the very first book! This book is not authorized by Cassandra Clare, Margaret K. McElderry Books, or anyone involved in the City of Bones movie.
I'm not a huge fan of books like this, and wasn't a fan of the Twllight one, but those who received their books early have praised it. I might have to go pick it up and see for myself.
