I have two gorgeous covers for you to lust over today.
1)Nightspell by Leah Cypess
This is the standalone novel to accompany a book called Mistwood. This is the American cover and the UK cover has not been released yet as the book will not be released over here until June 2011. The book has a rather Disney appeal to me, reminding me of Cinderella's castle shown in the opening credits of all Disney films.
Here is the blurb from Harper Teens.
Here be ghosts, the maps said, and that was all.
In this haunted kingdom, ghosts linger—not just in the deepest forests or the darkest caverns, but alongside the living, as part of a twisted palace court that revels all night and sleeps through the daylight hours.
Darri's sister was trapped in this place of fear and shadows as a child. And now Darri has a chance to save her sister . . . if she agrees to a betrothal with the prince of the dead. But nothing is simple in this eerie kingdom—not her sister, who has changed beyond recognition; not her plan, which will be thrown off track almost at once; and not the undead prince, who seems more alive than anyone else.
In a court seething with the desire for vengeance, Darri holds the key to the balance between life and death. Can her warrior heart withstand the most wrenching choice of all?
2) Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Don't you just want to take the tiger home and keep him as a pet. This cover reminds me of Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia; it is just a beautiful cover. This book will be rereleased by Hodder in May, with the sequels following in June and October. I can't wait!
Here is the blurb from Amazon.
The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince! When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.
Are you tempted to add either of these books to your list?
