News: UK Beautiful Dead #2 Cover & Wereling Re-Release

I was just browsing Amazon, and noticed they've added a cover for Beautiful Dead Book 2: Arizona. What do you think? I like how they're keeping to the style of the last book, and included wings again. It's due out on October 15th, and there's also a short summary:

There's been no sign of the Beautiful Dead for weeks. Darina achingly misses Phoenix all over again. But surely he will return with the rest of the Beautiful Dead as so much still remains unresolved. It's been ten months since Arizona drowned in Hartmann Lake. Suicide, it would seem. But something doesn't add up. Drowning herself in a hidden-away lake does not sound like strong, confident, Arizona: Ellerton High School's high-maintenance drama queen. Darina needs to help Arizona the way she helped Jonas. But time is running out...

Also, Bloomsbury are re-releasing Stephen Cole's Wereling trilogy at the beginning of July. Wounded, Prey and Resurrection all have new covers, and look so much better than the old ones! Here's a summary for book #1, Wereling...

Kate's family is not what you'd call average. Her parents and brother are werewolves, and when Kate comes of age werewolf law dictates that she will become one too. But Kate is horrified at the fate that awaits her, and can feel none of the pride that strengthens her family in their werewolf state. For the time being she is able to avoid the issue of when she will become a werewolf. Until, that is, her parents kidnap Tom Folan, on holiday with his parents, and he is destined to become Kate's mate.

I love the cover for Beautiful Dead 2! I might pick up the first book today.

Stpehen Cole's Wereling trilogy sounds really interesting. If you've read it, was it good? The covers are also really cool, especially Resurrection.

I'm really looking forward to the second Beautiful Dead and the Wereling trilogy sounds fantastic.

I absolutely love the cover of "The Beautiful Dead" series. I want them almost just for their covers alone (though they do sound intriguing and pretty cool.)

And I'm so excited they're re-releasing Wereling!! I read that series a few years ago and have been wanting to buy them, but we never get the second one at the bookstore I work at. These new covers are also better than the old ones. :) yayy!

I want those Beautiful Dead books ever since you talked about the first one...the second one has just as pretty as a cover. :-)

Oh, yay!!! Maybe my library will get the others now. Hmm. Maybe I can talk to them about that. They only bought the first one, and I've read it twice, so that still bugs me.

Although, I did love the original cover of the one I read, it was blue and pretty. Did they have different UK covers?
