Waiting on Wednesday (5)
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I never thought I'd start out a WoW with a negative. But honestly, you guys? I do not like this cover. The chick looks cardboard and her back just looks...off. Jeri Smith-Ready deserves much better than this cover. Now I bring you a positive. I love that the color scheme is red, whereas SHADE's was violet. If you've read the book, you'll understand that.
Now that I've said that, let us never speak of the cover again. Just like with people, it's what is inside that counts. I don't want to be too spoilery in case someone hasn't read Shade. If you haven't, though, shame on you! Go now! Walk, don't run, and buy Shade. You won't be sorry. And I have a feeling that what is inside the unmentionable cover is something wondrous and heartbreaking, just like last time.
Aura was left in quite a pickle last time. A pickle between two too-good-to-be-true guys. One, not-quite-ex Logan, who sings and plays instruments and is untouchable in every sense of the word. The other, Zachary, who has a Scottish accent and may or may not have a connection to Aura that is beyond physical. OoOooOoh are you intrigued yet? Because you should be. Shade was phenomenal and Shift is bound to be right on up there.
Another negative? This book doesn't come out for another 6 months. May 3, 2011. Are you counting down? I know I am.
