New Book Covers for Jenna Black and Kelley Armstrong

Jenna Black tweeted the new book cover for her fifth book The Devil's Playground in her Morgan Kingsley series, releasing on February 23, 2010. I really like this new cover style for this series.

Tweet: Cover art for THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND. Very different. What do you think?
Book Blurb:
Morgan Kingsley, a kick-ass exorcist, can deal with Lugh, the super-sexy demon living inside her, but does he have to moan softly during her intimate moments with her mortal lover? Understandably, Brian is reluctant to share the pleasures of Morgan's flesh with a gorgeous rogue from the Demon Realm.

But personal matters will have to wait when the opportunistic owner of The Seven Deadlies demon club in Philadelphia enlists Morgan's help in heading off a crisis: It seems that demons have started showing up at the hot spot in alarming numbers and in the unwilling bodies of rough trade club-goers. Morgan is sure that Dougal, Lugh's sworn enemy, is behind this, but why? To find out Morgan must summon every ounce of power at her command—or risk becoming just another casualty in an all-out demon war.

Kelley Armstrong tweeted the new book cover for the anthology Hellbound Hearts edited by Paul Kane and Marie O'Regan, due to release on September 29, 2009. One word: Spooky!.

Tweet: Cover art for Hellbound Hearts, stories inspired by Clive Barker's Hellraiser universe.
Book Blurb:
Clive Barker's iconic masterpiece The Hellbound Heart, the novella adapted into the film Hellraiser, unleashed a new mythology of horror, brilliantly conceived and born of the darkest imagination. Now, enter this visionary world -- the merciless realm of the demonic Cenobites -- in this collection of stories inspired by The Hellbound Heart. Featured here is the graphic work "Wordsworth," from bestselling author Neil Gaiman and artist Dave McKean, who unlock an explicit way to violate innocence -- one torturous puzzle at a time.... New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong logs on to a disturbing website for gamers, where the challenge is agonizing, and the solution beyond painful. When his father disappears, an Oxford student returns to his family's mansion, where a strange mechanism in the cellar holds a curious power, in a haunting illustrated work by Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola.

hi :)
I really like Jenna Black's cover for THE DEVIL'S PLAYGROUND.
I don't really like the cover for HELLBOUND HEARTS. I'd probably pass on it if I was going just by covers, luckily I read what it was about.
Thanks for sharing,

RKCharron I think Jenna's newest book has more of a whimsical fantasy look, which I like, a lot. HELLBOUND is a bit creepy. ;)

Hi Donna,

I read Jenna's Vampire books. I really liked them. Mixing the blood with milk? Who would have thought it would help curb a vamps appetite for blood? :D

I have her first two Morgan Kingsley books but will likely never read them. Maybe someday.

Hi Donna - I like the new cover style for The Devil's Playground too! I wonder if the previous books in the series will be released again with changed covers.

The Hellbound Hearts cover IS rather creepy! I can see where it would remind fans of Pinhead. :)

Donna said...

Hi Kimberly, that's a good thought. I hope they do, this cover is a lot better than the previous ones. I know they say "Don't judge a book by it's cover." but in reality most people do. Good Art always captures the eyes.

Wow that Jenna Black cover is intense!

And I'm digging the sound of that new anthology. I haven't read anything by Clive Barker but I've seen those Hellraiser movies...he's crazy!! I definitely plan on readin some of his writing.

Thanks for posting Donna =)
