My pick for this week is:
Title: Of Breakable Things
By: A. Lynden Rolland
To Be Published: April 8th, 2014
Alex Ash always stands out in a crowd. Blame it on her quick tongue or her attraction to trouble, but Alex is willing to bet most people know her name because of her illness. Living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is like living on death row, yet even as a prisoner in her own body, Alex is willing to fight for her diseased life as long it includes her best friend Chase and his rambunctious brothers. But when Chase’s entire family is tragically killed, suddenly her disease is a blessing in disguise. When death finally comes knocking, she is packed and ready to go- only to discover her life has just begun.
Eidolon is a secluded reservation which has existed for centuries as a safeguard and governing capital city for those spirits who are strong enough to linger once the body is gone. In a peculiar world where rooms can absorb emotions and secrets are buried six feet under, Alex finds herself to be the talk of the afterlife due to her infamous prophet of a mother who disappeared years ago. Suddenly standing out isn’t so great especially since the spirits who hunted her mother seem to have their sights set on Alex. Yet even amongst envious peers, daunting magic, and soulless banshees, the most difficult aspect of Alex’s afterlife is juggling between Chase and his reckless brother, neither of whom are willing to give up the girl they both love.
So much for resting in peace.
First can we discuss this amazingly creepy and gorgeous cover?!Yes, I know the “eye” is a popular cover art now a days, look at Shatter Me or Premeditated and many others, but this one totally amps up the creepy factor! Then add in the blurb a voilà! You have what a recipe of epic story! And it sounds so original! What more can I ask for? Too bad I have to wait until April.
