5 for Friday - August 31
5. Let's start strong. Adam Levine. American Horror Story.
This looks so bad ass. Who is planning to watch? The premiere is October 17th.
4. I love Amanda Bonilla's Shaede Assassin books. The ending of Blood Before Sunrise was a real kick in the nuts. Now, she's got the blurb out on book three, Crave the Darkness.
Nothing comes easy for Darian. Her heightened powers make her indispensable to the Shaede Nation, but dangerous missions have driven her lover, Tyler, to his breaking point. Darian must salvage their bond, but a new assignment to protect Anya—a fellow Shaede and the first of their kind to become pregnant in centuries—stands in their way.As if I wasn't a wreck already. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME, AMANDA BONILLA?? Now, I'm not sure if I want to read it. --OK, that's a lie. I'm totally going to read it, but I'm very nervous about it.
It doesn’t help that the two Shaedes are longtime rivals and share nothing besides mutual hatred. But when it becomes clear that someone—or something—is bent on destroying the expectant mother and her unborn child, Darian must put her feelings aside and track down Anya’s would-be assassin.
As she probes into Anya’s past, Darian digs up long-buried secrets—and a connection between Tyler and the mission that could destroy everything between them…
Somebody hold me. Adam Levine, maybe?
Crave the Darkness is out March 2013. The Ty POV novella, Lost to the Gray, releases February 5th.
3. No cover on that book yet, but I do have one gorgeous cover to share. Here's a peek at The Lost, book two in the Celestial Blues series by Vicki Pettersson.
Wow!! The Lost is out in March.
2. I Love Kristen Callihan's Darkest London books with a capital L. Now Kristen has posted four deleted scenes from Moonglow.
You can find them all here, along with a giveaway on book one, Firelight. If you haven't read this book, go enter right now!! (Or after you finish this post and leave a meaningful comment.)
1. And finally. Another tv show that has piqued my interest.
ABC has ordered a pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D. with Joss Whedon as part of the deal. I have loved almost every show I have ever seen from that man. (Buffy forever!!) Whedon is tapped to write the pilot and direct! King Joss says the series will be "autonomous" from the movies. I will try not to hold the absence of Chris Hemsworth against them (too much.) No word on any casting, but I am intrigued.
OK. That's it for this week. My husband is watching Gigolos in the background as I type this and it is very distracting. (It's so horrible, I must watch.)
