Thanks, Ciara Knight for this fun blog fest. I love the Did I Notice Your Book segment on her blog, so it’s fun to participate.
So, I’m doing the New Adult age range of novels and look what fun one I found…
Ward Against Death, by Melanie Card.
Twenty-year-old Ward de’Ath expected this to be a simple job bring a nobleman s daughter back from the dead for fifteen minutes, let her family say good-bye, and launch his fledgling career as a necromancer. Goddess knows he can t be a surgeon the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying so bringing people back from the dead it is.
But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that she s been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward can’t bring himself to break his damned physician’s Oath and desert her.
However, nothing is as it seems including Celia. One second, she s treating Ward like sewage, the next she s kissing him. And for a nobleman s daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive…
Okay, first of all, this cover is intriguing. Love the dark colors, mysterious-looking colors and that HUGE moon in the background. It makes me want to pick up the book and check it out.
Then I read the synopsis and it drew me in a little more! Have you guys read it? What’d you think?
Spread the word, let’s see if Melanie Card finds us here.
