Happy Boxing Day wherever you are in the world!
I hope you had a great Christmas and that your hangover is on its way out the door. If not, liquidise some kale and mix it in with your coffee because New Years is right around the corner! (Don’t come to me for hangover cure advice, I literally have no clue).
This week in the Teen & Young Adult Paranormal & Urban Fantasy chart, Blood Trial is still sitting comfortably on top for the third week in a row. Pretty impressive! So today’s book in the charts is from a little lower down than the top spot: #4.
“Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.
When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…”

I don’t know about you but I’m in love with this cover.
Gargoyle guardians are really getting popular in urban fantasy these days and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. The last and only one I have read (so far) was a gargoyle romance which was a little strange to begin with and I’m still having mixed feelings.
But personal struggles, ghosts and the promise of a big power-showdown overrides are a big draw and it totally seems like the kind of book I’d read. The only problem is the fairly hefty price tag at a little over $9 for the Kindle format alone. But having said that, the paperback is coming in at $11 so maybe the author is just looking for a few more paperback sales.
I can see how this one made it up on the charts and who knows, maybe next week this will be the book sitting at the top spot.
Thanks for reading!
