Cover Reveal
 
Misty Provencher has revealed the cover of her upcoming book, Mercy, A Gargoyle Story.


Mercy, A Gargoyle StoryMy will to survive is the first thing to drown.

I know, because I hold it under myself.

After facing severe tragedy in life, Madeline assumes her death will be easy.

But the angels do not come to take her to Heaven.

Instead, what retrieves her is something she never expected: a gargoyle.

Delivered to Truce, the King of the Gargoyles, Madeline now has choices she never wanted.  She has the ability to take over the entire Gargoyle Kingdom, if she is willing to kill the king.  However, looking to prevent takeover, Truce transforms Madeline, thereby granting her the ability to achieve the thing she wants most—death—if she can just find the human recipient for the Gargoyle Gift that she now has to give.  It should be easy.

But lives, whether they are lived or not, are seldom simple, and Madeline’s past still stands in her way. Now, only a voyeur in the life of The Boy with the Golden Rod Voice, Madeline’s must reconcile her own life and death, if she ever hopes to have free reign of her soul.
 
 

Gargoyles! I can't wait to read Mercy

  3. Wow! A few blogs I followed got Renegade as well, haha. Again, I love your accent! :D Hope your allergies go away soon, I know how you feel. Except our allergy season here in Canada, the city I live in anyways, is usually in April, May or June.

  4. Oh I got Release too this week but I'm a dummy and forgot to mention it. Oh well next week it is. I am loving that cover for Toxic. Looks like you got a lot of good reads this week. Hope you enjoy them all.

  6. Wow!! Such great books!! I can't wait to read Release!! My tour stop is in December. Congrats on your win!! I won two of the giveaways from the Anti-Bullying month event, but they haven't come in yet. Along with 4 other things I am waiting for too. :( my postal service obviously sucks! I hope that allergy season passes quickly for you. It was quite short lived here thankfully since my Fall allergies are the worst.

  11. Oh yay for starting the Fever series Andrea! I'm not a huge fan of urban fantasy books, but powered through that series early last year! I can't wait to see what you think of Barrons! I hope you enjoy all your books! I suffer from allergies too, but have been quite lucky this year, hope your allergies don't get too bad!

  12. I've been eager to read Renegade and Release myself. Toxic is new to me, but has a very eye-catching cover. Enjoy your books this week! :)

  15. Ahh!! I keep screwing up my comment. Sorry, I guess 3rd time is a charm.

    Andrea, I hope you feel better! I don't suffer from allergies so much but I was really sick with a chest cold last week, so I feel your pain. I'm sorry that's a yearly problem for you, though!

    I'm so excited to see you're going to pick up the Fever series. I've been listening to them in audio books and I'm on the last one, which is my favorite so far. Each book gets progressively better. Be warned not much romance in the 1st one, but it's the beginnings...Be sure and read the extra scene from Barrons POV, right after you finish the 1st one: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12086690-the-alpha-alternative

    Enjoy your reads. :)

  16. Woo hoo for Release! Love Matt's books!
    If you have the paperback of Shadowfever, I'm quoted in it. In the front on the second page, I think. I might be wrong. But I am quoted in it. And yes, I do tell EVERYONE. Including the cashiers at Safeway (where I first found it in paperback when it came out) and random shoppers. I have much love for that series!
    Sorry if I missed stuff, I cant get the video to play on my kindle fire. :(
    Awesome book week though!
