Covers and Summarys for Spell Bound and Fever

I have the books that come before both these ones sitting on my shelf, but since my TBR is so out of control lately I haven’t been able to read them yet! However, that’s not stopping me from being super excited about these two for both their summary’s and their covers**.

Spell Bound

Written by: Rachel Hawkins

Released: March 13, 2012 by Hyperion Book

Summary: Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?


Written by: Lauren DeStefano

Released: February 21, 2011 by Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing.

Summary: Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but danger is never far behind.

Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago - surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness.

The two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous - and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can’t seem to elude Rhine’s father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the any means necessary.

In the sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price - now that she has more to lose than ever.

Admittedly, the Fever cover kind of scares me and may just give me nightmares, but I still can’t wait to read it!

**keep in mind, these covers may not be final.

I love the cover for Spellbound! It's very pretty, cannot wait to read it! I like the one for Fever too, but I prefer Wither, I think. Thanks for sharing! :)
