NEW SERIES ALERT
Doesn’t this sound great? Very different covers for the UK and US editions. I think the UK cover has more of an urban fantasy vibe, whereas the US has the look of a paranormal romance. Either way I’m looking forward to reading this one.
THE SERIES: Mystwalker
PUBLISHER: Tor UK / St Martin’s Press | RELEASE DATE: Jan 2013 / Dec 2012
I HAVE TWO WORDS FOR WEREWOLVES… BITE ME. My name is Hedi Peacock and I have a secret. I’m not human, and I have the pointy Fae ears and Were inner-bitch to prove it. As fairy tales go, my childhood was damn near perfect, all fur and magic until a werewolf killed my father and the Fae executed my mother. I’ve never forgiven either side. Especially Robson Trowbridge. He was a part-time werewolf, a full-time bastard, and the first and only boy I ever loved. That is, until he became the prime suspect in my father’s death…
Today I’m a half-breed barista working at a fancy coffee house, living with my loopy Aunt Lou and a temperamental amulet named Merry, and wondering where in the world I’m going in life. A pretty normal existence, considering. But when a pack of Weres decides to kidnap my aunt and force me to steal another amulet, the only one who can help me is the last person I ever thought I’d turn to: Robson Trowbridge. And he’s as annoyingly beautiful as I remember. That’s the trouble with fate: Sometimes it barks. Other times it bites. And the rest of the time it just breaks your heart. Again…
