News Round Up: Raising Demons (Hex Hall #2) UK cover reveal & Amy Plum's Die For Me to be published in the UK!

Quick round up of some exciting book news from today!

Rachel Hawkin's Hex Hall was a fun debut, and today she revealed the UK cover for  the follow up, Raising Demons (Demonglass in the US).  This is so very different to the UK cover for Hex Hall, and I much, much, much prefer it, I gotta say! Rachel also mentioned that Hex Hall is also getting new cover to match this one, so I'm excited to see that too!

Do you prefer the US or UK cover on this one?I'm kinda torn. I loved the US cover for Hex Hall, and I think the cover for Demonglass is also adorable, but there is something dark and mysterious about the UK cover that I really like. Hmmmm...

Amy Plum's Die for Me is one of my most anticipated debuts for 2011. I fell in love with the cover art for this one a while back, and it's one I really can't wait to read. Today Amy announced that her UK publisher will be ATOM, an imprint of Little, Brown Book Group in the UK. ATOM have some amazing releases coming up in 2011 (Rosebush, The Gathering), and I think this one is the most exciting of all! The US cover for this one is so amazing. I wonder if it will be changed for the UK market. We'll have to wait and see! This will release in the US and the UK in May 2011.

Here's the US cover art and synopsis. Go add it to your wishlist if you haven't already done so! :)

When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life—and memories—behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant—an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

In this incandescent debut, newcomer Amy Plum has created a powerful paranormal mythology with immortal revenants. The Paris setting comes enchantingly alive as a relentless struggle between good and evil takes place in its streets. Rich with romance, atmosphere, and thrills, Die for Me will leave readers breathlessly awaiting its sequel.


  1. Oooh I kind of like both those covers. But the reason I like the US cover more is because I think it has elements from the book in it. Just like Hex Hall did, minus the oddly placed cat.

    And I have never heard of Die For Me, sounds pretty interesting!

  2. I've not read Hex Hall yet, but I adore that UK cover for Raising Demons!! I love the dark mysterious feel to it. I'd be far more likely to pick that up and check it out rather than the US one. The US one is pretty though, I just think the UK one is better.

    Yay for Die For Me being released in the UK as well! Is already on my wish list.

  3. The UK cover for Demonglass is gorgeous!! The girl's face just looks like she's got some sort of secret or something..can't wait for it! Also looking forward to seeing the new cover for Hex Hall!

    Die for Me sounds interesting, will check it out ;)

  4. At first, I really prefered the UK cover. In fact, I bought the UK edition of the first book (though I haven't read it yet... oops^^), but now, I'm not so sure anymore... I love the US ones too. I don't really know what to think about this UK cover...

  5. The UK cover is SO muc better than the US cover in my opinion! Love this feature! :)

  6. I like both covers. I wonder why they changed the title though.

  7. I like the US version better, but the UK one is pretty.

    I am so pining for Die For Me! It sounds really good and I love the cover.

  8. I love the UK cover. You are right- its dark and mysterious.

  10. I adore the US cover, but I have to say I also like the UK one. They are both pretty good.

  11. I'm so excited that Die for Me is being published in the UK because it means we'll get it here too. Our publishers often work with UK publishers - so books you guys get, we often do too :)

    I must say, I also prefer the UK cover. It's dark, purple and totally witchy. At least I think so :)
