Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Synopsis:
Anna Strong—kick-ass bounty hunter and vampire—has made some enemies in her time. But it’s not just her old foes she should be worried about…
Anna’s shape-shifting friend, Culebra, finally opens up to her about his life before owning Beso de la Muerte, a bar catering to supernatural clientele. As if summoned by the conversation, Culebra’s past stumbles into his bar in the form of an old buddy cashing in on a favor.

My Thoughts:
Like the first cover in this series. It's original and I really like it.  The image of the woman and the inner image of the male on the staircase is my favorite part. Obviously. I just think the font reminds me of Rachel Caine's Morganville series font. That being said, I still LOVE the cover.

Outpost (Razorland, #2)
Synopsis:
Deuce’s whole world has changed. Now living topside in a community called Salvation, she has a whole new set of problems. Down below, she was considered an adult, and she contributed to the whole. Now, topside, the people of Salvation think she’s a brat in need of training. She hates school, and she doesn’t fit in with the other girls. They’ve spent their lives learning to cook and sew–suitable woman’s work. Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, Fade keeps her at a distance, and the band of four has broken into fragments.

Stalker presses for a closer relationship, but Deuce sees him as a training partner, and she’s busy trying to find her place in Salvation. She refuses to accept that she’s wrong for being who she is, but tensions rise as she struggles against the status quo. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Once she’s free from school for the year, Deuce pursues a chance to serve in the summer patrols–those responsible for making sure the growers and planters can work the fields without danger of Freak attack. It should have been routine, little fighting, but things have been changing on surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks are smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it will take a girl like Deuce to turn the tide.

My Thoughts:
Fantastic! It's different and I love it. Dark, dingy and fierce. My kind of cover.

The Friday Society 
Synopsis:
Be your own hero . . .

Set in London at the turn of the last century, the novel follows the stories of three intelligent and very talented young women, all of whom are assistants to very powerful men: Cora, lab assistant to a member of parliament; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant to a martial arts guru; and Nellie, a magician's assistant. The three young women’s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It’s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder—and the crimes they believe may be connected to it‐‐without calling too much attention to themselves. More…

My Thoughts: 
I have a weakness for Steampunk covers. I don't think I've seen a bad one yet. That may change, but so far it hasn't. I'm digging this cover.

Night Shift (Jill Kismet, #1)Hunter's Prayer (Jill Kismet,...Redemption Alley (Jill Kismet,...Flesh Circus (Jill Kismet, #4)Heaven's Spite (Jill Kismet, #...Angel Town (Jill Kismet, #6)

My Thoughts:
It's different than the orignal covers, but like her Dante Valentine: Complete series cover, it's more modern and catchy. I still really like it, since I wasn't a huge fan of the orignals. They were different though, I'll give them that. The Jill on the Complete series cover is more what I picture of her, so I like that.

Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles, #1)
Synopsis:
While trying to save her brother four years ago, Greta was thrown into the witch’s fire herself, falling through a portal to a dangerous world where humans are the enemy, and every ogre, goblin, and ghoul has a dark side that comes out with the full moon.

To survive, seventeen-year-old Greta has hidden her humanity and taken the job of bounty hunter—and she’s good at what she does. So good, she’s caught the attention of Mylena’s young Goblin King, the darkly enticing Isaac, who invades her dreams and undermines her determination to escape.

But Greta’s not the only one looking to get out of Mylena. The full moon is mere days away, and an ancient evil knows she’s the key to opening the portal. If Greta fails, she and the lost boys of Mylena will die. If she succeeds, no world will be safe from what follows her back.

My Thoughts:
I love the title. It's not often you hear modern novels with Goblin in the title and I love that. I love the colors in this cover and the sword is kick a**. Not sure about the males pose, so nonchalant on a cliff. *laughs* I can't help it. It looks a bit silly, but with everything else it works I suppose.
