Monday Madness (26): Captivate by Carrie Jones & Firespell by Chloe Neill

What is Monday Madness?

It’s the phenomenon affecting all book lovers as we count down the hours in hopes of getting our hands on highly anticipated books on release day. So, come join me throughout the week where I will be featuring Author Interviews, Reviews and Contests for great books.

Captivate by Carrie Jones
Pub. Date: January 05, 2010
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Format: Hardcover, 288pp

Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people gets weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town.

A turf war is imminent, since the new pixie king, Astley, is moving in quickly. Nick nearly killed him in the woods on day one, but Zara came to his rescue. Astley swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Nick isn't buying it, though Zara isn't as sure -- despite herself, she wants to trust the new king. But it's a lot more than her relationship with Nick that is at stake. It's her life -- and his.

Firespell by Chloe Neill
Pub. Date: January 2010
Publisher: Penguin Group (USA)
Format: Mass Market Paperback, 256pp

New Girl.
New School.
Old Evil.

From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels.

A new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework.

Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.

They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users. It's too bad Lily doesn't have powers of her own to help. At least, none that she's discovered yet...

  1. Captivate arrived yesterday! But I want to finish Fallen before I read it. :)

    Firespell was an okay read. I'm reviewing it sometime this week! :)

  2. Fantasy fans will enjoy this sequel to Jones' Need. There is sure to be at least a few bouts of Team Nick verses Team Astley. This is a faced paced novel that includes fantasy, good verses evil, teen angst and of course teen love. I can't wait to see what happens next.


I want to hear from you, I promise I won't bite!
