Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!
This week's picks:
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
"Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust."
I first saw this one featured at The Story Siren and was immediately intrigued. Neat that the time travel is something they know about already! Apparently this one was written in German originally. Anyway I *love* the cover, the red is so rich and the scrollwork so intricate...it really stands out!
This is the German cover — quite a different feel, eh?
Apparently that tagline translates to something like, "Love goes through all of time."
Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
"Mary Lindsey's SHATTERED SOULS, a dark and dangerous forbidden love story about a Speaker who helps lingering ghosts pass to the spirit world and the Protector who has pledged to serve her."
I know, this one's already been floating around the blogosphere quite a bit, but I couldn't resist giving everyone another chance to ogle this drop-dead-gorgeous cover. And I also wanted to say that the skewing of perspective and transformation here reminds me of a Canadian artist, Rob Gonsalves', work. Some of his stuff is brilliant!
