Becca Fitzpatrick's 'Black Ice'.

See the cover of Becca Fitzpatrick's 'Black Ice'. Plus, an announcement about her next book -- EXCLUSIVE

We’ve got exciting news for Becca Fitzpatrick fans! Her next novel, Black Ice, doesn’t hit shelves until Oct. 7, but here’s an exclusive first look at the cover (above). “The cover captures not only the ruthless setting, but the characters as well,” Fitzpatrick told EW in an exclusive statement. “Under the winter layers, we catch a glimpse of an irresistible bad boy—the kind I love writing so much.”
Black Ice is a dark, romantic thriller instead of Fitzpatrick’s typical paranormal novel. It follows Britt Phieffer, who convinces her best friend to hike the Grand Tetons with her. After a freak storm strands the girls in the woods, they meet Shaun and Mason, two fugitives who take the girls hostage.
But there’s more news on the horizon. We can exclusively announce Fitzpatrick’s next book: Sapphire Skies, a new standalone thriller, will be published by Simon & Schuster in fall 2015. Here’s the official description: “In Sapphire Skies, 17-year-old Stella Gordon lives with her mother in a lovely country manor near Philadelphia’s ‘old money’ Main Line. But one fateful night, Stella’s life is shattered by a single gunshot. Stella witnesses a crime, forcing her into the U.S. Federal Witness Protection Program to testify against the perpetrator—a crime boss named Danny Bolando. Stella is whisked away to the sleepy town of Thunder Basin, Nebraska, and forced to start life over as someone else. She soon meets Chet Falconer, her boyishly handsome ranch hand neighbor, who swears he’s going to have her wearing cowgirl boots and riding horses before the summer’s over. While Chet’s flirting is a welcome distraction from her miserable plight, Stella is most certainly not into cowboys, and she lets him know it. But deep down, and against her better judgment, Stella can’t help but feel she’s falling under Chet’s spell. Unfortunately, she also has to deal with Dusty Falconer, Chet’s hotheaded and rule-breaking younger brother whom Stella feels an unwanted but irresistible attraction to. As the hot Nebraskan summer wears on, Stella tries to settle into her new life. But when she receives a threatening message on her doorstep, she fears she might never outrun her past. Is it possible she’s not as safe in small town Nebraska as the authorities would have her believe?”
Are you excited for Black Ice and Sapphire Skies? Sound off in the comments.

The Beautiful Ashes cover!

TBA cover 2In a world of shadows, anything is possible. Except escaping your fate. 
Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse—her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. The one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who’s bound by an ancient legacy to betray her.
Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn’t mean he can change his fate…no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy. Together they search for the powerful relic that can save her sister, but Adrian knows what Ivy doesn’t: that every step brings Ivy closer to the truth about her own destiny, and a war that could doom the world. Sooner or later, it will be Ivy on one side, Adrian on the other, and nothing but ashes in between…
THE BEAUTIFUL ASHES releases on August 26th in paperback, ebook and audiobook. If you’re interested, here are some preorder links: AmazonBAMPowellsB&N.

Cover Reveal: The Queen of Zombie Hearts by Gena Showalter

The Queen of Zombie Hearts (White Rabbit Chronicles #3)


I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice 'Ali' Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers; until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters; and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing and turning Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.


Ruin and Rising (The Grisha, #3)

Ruin and Rising (The Grisha #3)

The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.
