Shards & Ashes


Expected publication: February 2013 by HarperCollins

I don't know anything about this book, but just checking out all of the authors in this book makes me want it!

The Casual Vacancy
When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?

A big novel about a small town, The Casual Vacancy is J. K. Rowling’s first novel for adults. It is the work of a storyteller like no other.
Expected publication: September 27th 2012 by Little, Brown and Company
When Nadia’s family moves to Captive’s Sound, she instantly realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Descended from witches, Nadia senses a dark and powerful magic at work in the town. Mateo has lived in Captive’s Sound his entire life, trying to dodge the local legend that a curse has been placed on his family that will cause him to go insane. When the strange dreams Mateo has been having of rescuing a beautiful girl—Nadia—from a car accident come true, he knows he’s doomed. 

Despite the forces pulling them apart, Nadia and Mateo must work together to break the chains of his family's terrible curse, and to prevent a disaster that threatens the lives of everyone in the town. 
Expected publication: March 5th 2013 by HarperTeen 


  1. Oh wow I knew Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong were co-editing another anthology but I had no idea what it was called or had seen the cover. I loved reading their last anthology Enthalled so I am definitely excited for this one.

    Spellcaster also sounds like it's going to be a great read and I love the cover. Thanks for sharing these!

    My WoW post won't be up until tomorrow but feel free to check out my lastest blog post if you wish ^_^.
