Feature & Follow #6


It's the favorite day of the week, which means...it's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The question of the week is:

Q. Have you ever looked at a book's cover and thought, This is going to be horrible?  But, was instead pleasantly surprised?  Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

Slave to Sensation
by: Nalini Singh


Slave to Sensation is based in our world but about 70 years in the future, where there are three races of people. The Psy, a race of people with highly superior mental capabilities such as telekinesis or telepathy and they have conditioned themselves to feel no emotion. The Changelings are people with the ability to change into different animals. And then there are the regular humans. Sascha is a Psy and she believes she's flawed because her conditioning is failing. Lucas is the alpha to the Dark River leopard pack and he's searching for a murderer who has killed many changelings. He knows Sascha is his key to finding the killer so he intends to use her but instead falls for her.

The paperback cover (above) is the one that I don't care for, it's just boring I think. There is nothing about the cover that goes with this book at all. It's just a guy standing there. I do however like the audio book cover (right) much much better. To me it shows the reader just a little glimpse of Sascha and Lucas, enough to get them to read the book. If I had seen the audio book cover before I saw the paperback cover I would have started this series a lot soon than a couple of months ago.

But I have to say, it's an incredible series and if you haven't read any of them I highly recommend that you do.  The world that she had built and the characters are so easy to fall in love with. I'm kinda sad that I only have two more books to read and then I'm caught up. I'll just have to patiently wait for the next book to release in May. :)

 Guilty Pleasures
by: Laurell K. Hamilton

My name is Anita Blake. Vampires call me The Executioner. What I call them isn't repeatable.
Ever since the Supreme Court granted the undead equal rights, most people think vampires are just ordinary folks with fangs. I know better. I've seen their victims. I carry the scars...
But now a serial killer is murdering vampires -- and the most powerful bloodsucker in town wants me to find the killer...

My thoughts on the cover:
When I was first introduced to the Anita Blake Series...I wasn't impressed with the covers.  Even the other Versions were dull or plain.  It drove me crazy.  The cover of Guilty Pleasures just didn't capture my attention and I thought the book was going to be awful at first.  Never judge a book by it's cover.  Even the description of the book didn't give it justice.  The Series in a whole...I'm obsessed with.  I love the world and the characters Laurell has created...especially Nathaniel.  *Sigh*

Now Laurell's most recent cover to her newest release in June is by far my favorite and I hope the book is just as good as the cover looks.  =)



I think whoever designed the new cover should be hired for the rest also.  It gives the Series more justice.  =)  At least that's my personal opinion.  Maybe others like Laurell's plain and simple covers...but me...I'll take the dark, sexy covers any day.  Now if only she could throw in a actor who could portray Nathaniel or do what she did for Micah's cover...and I'll be a Happy Anita Blake Fan.  =) 

If your into twisted plots and crazy sex scenes...you may love the Anita Blake Series.  If your not into twisted stories...you may not get into this series.  Laurell K. Hamilton definitely has a creative mind that will freak out people (especially my husband when I tell him bits and pieces)...but that is why Laurell is one of my faves.  She creates something no one else would dare do.
