In My Mailbox (16)

I didn't get much this week, but that's ok b/c I have so many books to read. I did pre-order Dreamfever by Karen Moning, Blood Promise by Richelle Mead and Rampant by Diana Peterfreund

For Review:

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Pub. Date: December 22, 2009
Age Range: Young Adult
384pp

Synopsis (Author’s website)
A prodigal son
A dangerous love
A deadly secret . . .


I stood back and watched his movements. Daniel had that way about him that could shut me down in an instant. . . . I kicked the gravel a couple of times and worked up my courage again. “Tell me . . . I mean . . . why did you come back? Why now, after all this time?”

Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared—the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in blood. But she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night really held. And when Daniel returns three years later, Grace can no longer deny her attraction to him, despite promising Jude she’ll stay away.

As Grace gets closer to Daniel, her actions stir the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind Jude and Daniel's dark secret . . . and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it—her soul.

Flux sent me:

Vamped by Lucienne Diver
Publisher: Llewellyn Worldwide, LTD.
Pub. Date: May 2009
Age Range: Young Adult
240pp


Synopsis
Gina Covello's Perks and Pitfalls of Vamp Life
1. Hello?! Eternal youth and beauty!
2. Free. Designer. Clothes.
3. My hot new boyfriend Bobby went from chess dud to vamp stud.
4. No reflection! First order of business: turn my own stylist to stop the downward spiral from chic to eek.
5. Vampire vixen Mellisande has taken an interest in my boyfriend, and is now transforming the entire high school into her own personal vampire army. If anyone's going to start their own undead entourage it should be me.

I guess I'll just have to save everyone from fashion disasters and other fates worse than death.
