In My Mailbox (10)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren. Check out her awesome YA reviews.

Not many, but a pretty happy girl, I am!

For Review:

Fade Out by Rachel CaineFade Out by Rachel Caine

Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedom, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again...Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve's castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realise that this film project, featuring the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger - and way more dangerous - than anyone suspected. From Amazon UK

Monster Republic by Ben HortonMonster Republic by Ben Horton

An explosion in a nuclear power plant. Kids patched up with scavenged body parts and bionic implants. A growing army of superhuman soldiers programmed for destruction. 'No', whispered Cameron to the monster in the glass. And he watched it shaking its hideous head. 'That's not me. You're not me'. As commercial and compelling as a computer game, this is the first book in a major new series. From Amazon UK


Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle ZinkProphecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink

'Without the Keys, something terrible will happen. Something that cannot be undone. And with them, I might bring an end to the riddle of the Prophecy and my strange part in it. If Alice and I are on conflicting sides of the Prophecy, the Keys would be dangerous in her hands. Which means I have to find them. And I have to do it before my sister.' This is the story of sixteen-year-old Lia Milthorpe's quest to discover her role and her twin sister's in a powerful prophecy that has affected twin sisters for generations. But nothing can prepare her for what she discovers - about herself, about her family, and about the danger that goes from haunting her dreams to becoming her reality. From Amazon UK

*Michelle Zink saw my On My Wishlist (3) post where I mentioned wanting to read Prophecy of the Sisters, and how, in the comments, I said that I hadn't read those books yet because money was a bit tight - so she got in touch with her UK publicist, asking her to get in touch with me so I could get sent a review copy. I have to review the book - which I would do anyway - but it's not a typical "review copy" as this book was actually published 3 months ago in the UK. How lovely of Michelle was that?! Such an awesome lady! So chuffed!

I am an extremely happy bunny! You get much this week?


  1. I MUST read Prophecy of the Sisters, it sounds so great.
    And I love it when the vampires are the evil, just like they're supposed to be :)
    You have an awesome blog, I'm following :)

  2. Thank you for stopping by, and for following! :) Ohh, if you haven't read the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine you must start, they're amazing! The first is Glass Houses :) Fade Out is pretty awesome so far! I am SO looking forward to reading Prophecy of the Sisters, it's going to be good!

  3. Alright then, Morganville it is :)

  4. Both Michelle and Prophecy of the Sisters are completely and utterly awesome. :D

  5. Yay for Prophecy of the Sisters! I've really been wanting to read that one. Enjoy. :D


  6. Kirthi - Awesome! Let me know how you like them!

    Catherine - Ohh, good to hear! Michelle is great!

    Briana - Thank you! I'm really looking forward to reading it!

  7. I got Prophecy of sister 2!can't wait 2 read it!! Happy reading Jo!

  8. All of your new books this week sound good. I will admit that I'm behind on the Morganville books by Rachel Caine. I think I still have the last three on my TBR shelf.

    The other two books sound great. I'll have to look for them.

  9. Faye - Thank you! Ohh, Prophecy of the Sisters looks so good! :D

    Kathy - Ohh, I would suggest picking up the Rachel Caine books and digging right back in! They're fantastic!

  10. First up, that is *so* nice of Michelle Zink. I actually really loved Prophecy of the Sisters, and have passed my copy round my entire family to read (who all thought it was great too). So, it's a good one to get!

    I hadn't heard of Monster Republic before, and that cover looks pretty gross, but I really like the premise! I'll be intrigued to hear what you think of it.

  11. I know! Michelle Zink is seriously lovely! I can't believe she did that, I am so grateful! Oh, awesome, glad to hear it's so good!

    I'm looking forward to reading Monter Republic! As I finished reading Fade Out yesterday, I'll be starting it today - though my review won't be posted until January, so you'll have a little while to wait, I'm afraid.

  12. Great books.. Prophecy of the Sisters in on my wishlist! Love the cover of Monster Republic!

  13. Thanks! PRophecy of the Sisters looks awesome! Monster Republic's cover looks great, and the book looks awesome!

  14. It does! The new UK covers for the Morganville Vampires series are just gorgeous, really - I just don't see how they fit in with the story really, unless they're all supposed to be Eve? Otherwise, I don't get it. They're still beautiful!
