News: Covers for The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove and The Iron Witch

Lookie lookie! UK covers for new releases from Random House Children's Books coming next year!

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren KateThe Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate (6th Jan 2011) - Lauren Kate's irresistible first novel, THE BETRAYAL OF NATALIE HARGROVE, features the most ruthlessly ambitious heroine since Lady Macbeth. Natalie is utterly determined to cement her position at the top of the high school social ladder by becoming prom queen. When it looks like an interfering ex-boyfriend might get in her way, she devises a little prank to humiliate him. But when the prank goes devastatingly wrong, Natalie starts to lose control of her life. Caught in a web of dark secrets, shame and abuse of power, it's not guilt that eventually defeats Natalie. It's fate: the only thing she can't control... From Amazon UK

The Iron Witch by Karen MahoneyThe Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney (3rd Feb 2011) - That's what they call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood at Ironbridge High School. A horrific fey attack that killed her father when she was just a child left Donna branded with iron tattoos that cover her hands and arms - and magically enhanced strength, that she now does all she can to hide.

Now, after ten years of wishing for a normal life, Donna finally accepts her role in the centuries-old war against the darkest outcasts of Faerie - the dark elves. Aided by Xan, a gorgeous half-fey dropout, Donna must save her best friend's life - and that means betraying one of the world's greatest secrets and confronting the very thing that destroyed her family.

Just to clarify, Lauren Kate wrote The Betrayal first, but Fallen and Torment were published in the UK before it.
