Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews MAGIC BLEEDS by Ilona Andrews

What can I say, Ilona Andrews just keeps getting better. This is the latest in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series, set in an alternate Atlanta where magic comes and goes like the tide. Kate works for the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, officially, as a liaison with the mercenary guild. Unofficially, she cleans up the paranormal problems no one else wants to handle-’especially if they involve Atlanta's shapeshifting community.

Kate has a lot of dangerous secrets that have made it difficult for her to get close to people, and over the last few books she has been slowly opening up. In this book, there is what I refer to as Significant Relationship Developments. Things will be decided one way-’or the other-’between Kate and Curran, the Beast Lord.

Lightborn by Sinclair LIGHTBORN by Alison Sinclair

Last year I mentioned DARKBORN, the first in a wonderful Regency-tinged romantic fantasy trilogy (with appeal to readers of Sharon Shinn and Carol Berg). LIGHTBORN is the follow-up, set in a city divided, where an ancient curse makes darkness anathema to the Lightborn, while the touch of sunlight kills the Darkborn. One of the most interesting things about the series is how the author takes a science based approach to some of the fantastical elements and follows through with it in the writing. The Darkborn are blind, due to their inability to stand the touch of sunlight, and everything described from the point of view of a Darkborn character only references texture and sound. It's the kind of thing that you might not notice on first reading, but the book is richer for it.

Lady Telmaine Hearne is a Darkborn mage who has kept her powers secret, fearful of being ruined in society-until her husband, Balthasar, draw her into a conspiracy. On the other side of sunrise, the assassin Floria White Hand, is one of the Lightborn prince's most trusted guards as well as Balthasar Hearne's oldest friend. When the prince dies in darkness, Floria is suspected, and she must flee for her life to the Darkborn. The murder turns Darkborn against Lightborn, earthborn against mage. A Darkborn lady, a Lighborn assassin, and a dissident Lightborn mage form an unlikely alliance as conspiracies ripen and treason declares itself on both sides of sunrise-

Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie
RED HOT FURY by Kasey Mackenzie

If you're feeling "been there, done that" about urban fantasy full of vampires and werewolves, have I got a book for you. This is the beginning of a brand new urban fantasy series, about a woman who is a Fury, a member of an Arcane race that has avenged wrongdoing since time immemorial. It's fresh and fun and a unique take on the genre.

In addition to being a Fury, Marissa Holloway is Boston's chief magical investigator, solving supernatural crimes for the city. But it's far from business as usual when the body of a sister Fury washes up in Boston Harbor. When Riss reports that the corpse's identity has been magically altered, she's immediately-’and inexplicably-’suspended from her job. Then a human assassin makes an attempt on her life, and Riss realizes that someone is trying to stir up strife between mortals and Arcanes. When a Fury gets mad, she gets even, and Riss is determined to uncover the truth.

A Devil in the Details A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS by K. A. Stewart

This is a little more peripheral, but it kicks off a fantastic boy contemporary fantasy series (with appeal to readers of Jim Butcher, Simon R. Green, and Rob Thurman) that has a terrific voice and a great sense of humor. I simply had a wonderful time with it, so I wanted to share.

Jesse James Dawson was an ordinary guy (well, an ordinary guy with a black belt in karate), until the day he learned his brother had made a bargain with a demon. Jesse discovered there was only one way to save his brother: Put up his own soul as collateral and fight the demon to the death. Jesse lives to free his brother, and becomes part of a loose organization of champions who put their own souls on the line to help those who get in over their heads with demons.

This doesn't have traditional romantic elements, but there is love and sacrifice-and Jesse's sometimes tense relationship with his wife, who is understandably not keen on him fighting demons for a living!

August 2010

A Wild Light Liu A WILD LIGHT by Marjorie Liu

The next book in Marjorie Liu's action-packed urban fantasy series about a demon hunter whose tattoos come to life. (I dare you not to be intrigued by that!)

For too long Maxine Kiss has felt an inexplicable darkness inside her-’a force she channels into hunting the demons bent on destroying the human race. But when she finds herself covered in blood and crouched beside her grandfather's dead body with no memory of what happened or of the man she loves, Maxine begins to fear that the darkness has finally consumed her-

Total Eclipse TOTAL ECLIPSE by Rachel Caine

This is it, the grand finale, and the book that the Weather Warden series has been building up to: will warden Joanne Baldwin and the Djinn David avert the apocalypse and ride off into the sunset together-or not? All I'll say is that it's dramatic, exciting and very satisfying.

Standing at ground zero for the last attack, Joanne, David, and the Earth herself have been poisoned by a substance that is destroying the magic that keeps the world alive. Joanne and David have already lost their powers, but that's just the beginning. The poison that has seeped into the planet is destabilizing the entire balance of power, bestowing magic on those who have never had it and taking it at critical moments from those who need it. It's just a matter of time before the delicate balance of nature explodes into chaos, destroying mankind-’and every living thing on Earth-’with it.

    Okay perhaps that is not completely true but I already bought 2 copies of Magic Bleeds and I think that should be enough for one household. Loved it to pieces btw. =)

    I love Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series – I just wish Magic Bleeds was available in eBook format for me to buy from New Zealand. Just can’t find it anywhere!

    I also love Marjorie M Liu’s Hunter Kiss series – can’t wait for the release of A Wild Light.

    Red Hot Fury
    Devil in the Details

    I have read Magic Bleeds and I’ll just say – Well done Ilona Andrews! Congrats on a fabulous book and series.

    Best cover, I’m going to choose Lightborn solely because it looks unique and fresh.

  12. OmNe
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:12:05

    TOP TWO PICKS -Lightborn and Devil in the Details (though Magic Bleeds sure comes close).

    Lightborn has the best cover, imo.

  13. Monika H.
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:12:34

    A Devil in the Details
    A Wild Light

    The cover for A Devil in the Details is the only one that appeals to me. However it reminds me of Brent Weeks’ Night Angel Trilogy and it doesn’t look much like an urban fantasy.

    Magic Bleeds is a great book and I think it has the best cover art that Ilona Andrews has ever gotten. That doesn’t mean much though. I dislike the covers for the other Kate Daniel books and the Edge series severely.

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:12:45

    My picks are:
    RED HOT FURY / Kasey Mackenzie
    A WILD LIGHT / Marjorie M. Liu

    And my favorite cover is A Wild Light’s. Thanks for the giveaway.

    OMG…ALL of these books are on my TBR list. I love the Weather Warden and Kate Daniels series, but I think I’m looking forward to reading Red Hot Fury the most.

    This summer is going to be EPIC!

  17. Spav
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:38:54

    My picks are:
    Red Hot Fury
    Devil in the Details

    I think the best book cover is Lightborn.

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:39:11

    I would love to win # RED HOT FURY by Kasey Mackenzie or A WILD LIGHT by Marjorie M. Liu and I thought that Total Eclipse had the best cover.

  19. madscientistnz
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:56:10

    I already have Magic Bleeds sitting on the bed next to me so my next two choices are:
    A Devil In The Details by K A Stewart & Lightborn by Alison Sinclair

    The cover I like best is Lightborn – I’m almost afraid to try Sinclairs’ series in case the story doesn’t live up to the beauty of the covers!

  20. Donna L
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 05:59:38

    Top 2:
    LIGHTBORN by Alison Sinclair
    TOTAL ECLIPSE by Rachel Caine

    Best cover for me is LIGHTBORN. I love the soft glow of the light.

  21. Jennifer Estep
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:11:34

    I’d like A Devil In The Details by K.A. Stewart and Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie.

    I think Lightborn has the best cover. It really has that romantic fantasy feel to it, and everything from the haze surrounding the heroine to the fonts tie into that.

  22. Natasha A.
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:20:28

    A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS / K. A. Stewart
    RED HOT FURY / Kasey Mackenzie

    Those would be my two choices, and I have to say Lightborn has an absolutely wonderful cover!!

  23. Susan Laura
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:42:59

    LIGHTBORN / Alison Sinclair
    MAGIC BLEEDS / Ilona Andrews

    Lightborn is the cover I like best. The beautiful art work grabs my attention in a good way and I would definitely stop and read the blurb.

    After so many great reviews/recs I am planning to start the Kate Daniels series this summer. (Lucky me – no waiting!) But, for what it’s worth, I DON’T like the covers on these books. I think one reason I haven’t read these books sooner is that when I see them displayed in the store my first reaction is “cheesy cover” and I move on.

  24. Elise S.
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:44:29

    My two picks are Total Eclipse by Rachel Caine and Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie.

    The cover for Lightborn is lovely and keeps drawing my attention.

    Thanks for the contest!

  25. Naomi
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:48:29

    I would love to win Red Hot Fury and Total Eclipse – been anticipating both for a long time!

    I think the Lightborn cover is gorgeous, and definitely stands out the most.

  26. Maya M.
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 06:52:15

    I’ve been salivating for LIGHTBORN ever since reading DARKBORN last year, easily one of my top reads in all genres, so I’m thrilled it’s finally out and the pretty cover sure doesn’t hurt.

    So I’ll toss my hat in the ring for

    LIGHTBORN,

    and don’t have a preference for second among the rest.

  27. Mary Beth
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:24:36

    Magic Bleeds would have been my first choice, but I’ve already bought and read it. Loved it!

    So, my top two picks are: Lightborn and A Devil in the Details.

    I liked all of these covers, but Lightborn really stands out for me. Perhaps because of the bright spot of the woman in a sea of dark-colored, intense-looking covers.

  28. OctopusGallery
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:31:30

    My picks are A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS and TOTAL ECLIPSE.

    Best cover I think goes to A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS.

  29. Rebecca B
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:33:33

    1. Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

    2. Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie

    I thought Lightborn had the best cover, though.

  30. Lynn
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:38:31

    My first pick would be Lightborn by Alison Sinclair — Regency tinged romantic fantasy!! What more could you ask for — of course, I would have to go out at purchase Darkborn since I have to read books in order.

    My second choice would be Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews — I have heard some really wonderful things about this series. Again, I would have to go out and purchase the rest of the series, but you can never have to many books, right????

    The best cover would be Lightborn — I was scrolling down thru before reading the blurbs and that cover just jumped out at me — if I was in a bookstore and saw it, I would definitely pick it up to see what it was about.

  31. Brenda C
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:49:22

    I LOVE the cover for LIGHTBORN :)

    My top two picks would be LIGHTBORN and A WILD LIGHT.

  32. Diane Varner
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:55:05

    Red Hot Fury
    Devil in the Details

    Already have Magic Bleeds or that would have been my number 1 pick.

  33. alexa
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 07:59:33

    These all look good, but my first picks would be Lightborn and Magic Bleeds.

  34. Jade
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 08:03:25

    My choices, in order of preference:

    MAGIC BLEEDS / Ilona Andrews
    RED HOT FURY / Kasey Mackenzie

    And my choices for best cover:

    A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS / K. A. Stewart – I like that the cover doesn’t show a half-naked guy. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind when the cover features a half-naked man, but when he’s the main character, I think it pulls away from the story a bit.

    RED HOT FURY / Kasey Mackenzie – I LOVE how the character on the cover looks REAL. All too often, UF heroines are featured on their covers as airbrushed as supermodels in magazines. Airbrushing is OK in moderation. But no one looks like THAT in real life.

  35. Riva
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 08:03:53

    Choices: Lightborn and Red Hot Fury.

    Best cover: Lightborn, hands down. It’s gorgeous!

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 08:11:49

    1. Devil in the Details
    2. Red Hot Fury

    I like the cover for Devil in the Details best composition and colorwise. Lightborn is pretty, but a little too much so for my taste.

  38. KC
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 08:17:14

    I already have (& love!) Magic Bleeds, so my choices would be Lightborn and Red Hot Fury. I think the best cover is A Devil in the Details.
    I love the Magic series, but this last cover is more like Magic Bewbs! I think they used the same model for the other covers, but I don’t remember her being so, um, bountiful. :-)

  39. Danielle Yockman
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 08:22:44

    I would have to pick Magic Bleeds and Red Hot Fury to read. But A Wild Light sounds pretty good too! :)

    Lightborn has the best cover, it’s lovely.

    Red Hot Fury and Lightborn both look like very interesting new books!

    And I like both covers, but I think Lightborn wins. It’s a bit different from all the other versions of tight-leather-wearing chicks. It catches my attention because of that.

    If I hadn’t already bought and read MAGIC BLEEDS that would be my #1 top choice but I have already devoured it! It was so good too!!!

    My top two picks would have to be:
    Total Eclipse – Rachel Caine
    A Wild Light – Marjorie M. Liu

    The best cover is:
    Magic Bleeds – Ilona Andrews

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 10:15:18

    My picks;
    â—¦RED HOT FURY / Kasey Mackenzie
    â—¦A WILD LIGHT / Marjorie M. Liu

    I would have been stopped in my tracks by all these covers! But since you want a first choice, I think Lightborn cover is amazing. It seems evocative of the story and I like that a lot. BUT I think each of these covers does that to a different degree, so kudos to Ace/Roc for doing that with your covers.

    I read Magic Bleeds already and bravo! Write faster Andrews team! ;-) I’ve followed the Maxine Kiss series and love it! M. Liu writes amazing characters and stories. I’ve cried and laughed, too. I haven’t read some of these other authors yet but they are all going on my TBR list.

    Big Thanks to Anne Sowards and Ace/Roc for the opportunity to win great new reading material!

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 10:21:29

    A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS K. A. Stewart is my first pic because because I love starting new series and RED HOT FURY Kasey Mackenzie for the same reason.
    Best cover goes to Red Hot Fury because I’ve seen the view of the heroines back, the side, facing forward, and crouched. The view from the top is new.

    Oh pick me -these all sound fabulous.

    I like LIGHTBORN. Read Darkborn -very good book. Also, my pick for cover.

    I would love to try A DEVIL IN THE DETAILS because I want to read more manly literature. Or at least, something told from the male POV for a change.

  90. Persephone Green

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 13:45:28

    TOTAL ECLIPSE by Rachel Caine
    A WILD LIGHT by Marjorie Liu

    are my two favorites. The covers seem more reflective of what is going on with the story as well as being eyecatching.

    Though I would say Winterborn is close as it is very eye-catching, but I still prefer the other two over it.

    Red Hot Fury
    A Devil in the Details (still, I’m willing to try!)

    I chose these two partly because the others all seem to be sequels or part of series that I haven’t read.

  125. Abigail [All Things Urban Fantasy]
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 14:29:07

    RED HOT FURY by Kasey Mackenzie

    Jun 02, 2010 @ 14:36:18

    1) A Wild Light by Marjorie M. Liu
    2) Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie.

    The best cover: Gotta be A Wild Light. The hot colours combined with Maxine’s presence with some very important items woven into the storyline displayed, intertwined with the hint of a male blew me away. The tats don’t hurt either.

  127. martha Ramirez
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 14:51:29

  129. Joni S
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 15:04:32

    The best cover to me is Red Hot Fury. As for which two books get my top picks, it’s definitely A Wild Light and Total Eclipse. I’m a huge fan of Marjorie Liu, and I can’t wait to see how the Weather Wardens series ends up.

  130. Rachel Randall

  144. Iswari
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 17:52:14

    I am totally addicted to the Weather Warden series, so it would be great to get an ARC of “Total Eclipse.” The book “Red Hot Fury” looked interesting as well.

    I really like the cover for “Red Hot Fury” too. Her eyes really grab your attention and make you want to take a closer peek.
    :-)

  145. scrapper
    Jun 02, 2010 @ 17:58:02

    my first choice would be Magic bleeds but I already have two copies so I’ll let someone else have a chance at it.

    Red hot fury and Devil in the details really sound interesting.

    Lightborn and Red hot fury both have eye catching covers.

    LIGHTBORN and TOTAL ECLIPSE

    I have to say that Lightborn’s cover caught my eye immediately–haven’t seen that color scheme much lately, and it had an interesting softness about it that you don’t see much at all in the paranormal genre. It immediately piqued my interest, and the comparison to Sharon Shinn cinched it.

    Love this list overall, I’m off to investigate a few of these new-to-me authors. MAGIC BLEEDS was outstanding and I can’t wait for TOTAL ECLIPSE!!!

  229. Kelsey
