The official patter:
"Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. "

Today we have two highly anticipated books to look forward too. THE BOOK everyone has been waiting all summer for is out. Catching Fire is the second book in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I'm sure you've had your calendar marked with a little mocking jay symbol awaiting the hour the bookstore opens and you can get all your questions answered. What will happen when Katniss sees Gale for the first time? Is a rebellion really afoot? What will the Capital do to Peeta and Katniss for revenge? Too many questions and hopefully some will be answered before Suzanne Collins leaves us begging for more when Catching Fire draws to a close on page 400! To tide you over while you are (hopefully) waiting for my review, I will be posting my review of The Hunger Games on Wednesday. I bet you can't wait can you? Or are you just hanging out to see if you won my contest so that you'll have some money to go buy the book with...

Must Love Hellhounds by Charlaine Harris, et al.
Published by: Berkley Trade
Publication Date: September 1st, 2009
Format: Paperback, 368 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"Four well-known fantasy writers bring magical dogs into the plots of otherwise standard paranormal novellas. Harris's urban fantasy, “The Britlingens Go to Hell,” pits bodyguards Batanya and Clovache against demons, wolfwomen and two hellhounds guarding some unusual prisoners. In Singh's paranormal romance, “Angels' Judgment,” vampire trackers Sara and Deacon must discover who is murdering vampires; one suspect owns a hellhound. In Andrews's sexy “Magic Mourns,” Andrea, a knight who helps people with magic problems, links with a shape-shifter to find a stolen corpse, but first they must get by a three-headed dog. In Brook's page-turning romance “Blind Spot,” Maggie Wren, CIA operative turned vampire's personal assistant, teams up with a hellhound to find her boss's kidnapped niece. Only the most obsessive dog fanciers will be really enthralled by the passing mentions of canines."

The second book is Must Love Hellhounds, which contains four new short stories, one of which is by Charlaine Harris, set in the Sookie universe. Her story centers on the Britlingens, the bizarre body guards we first saw when Sookie took a road trip up toward Chicago in All Together Dead, the seventh Sookie Stackhouse novel. Their interesting abilities to slid between dimensions should make this a story not to be missed. The other three authors are Ilona Andrews who writes the Kate Daniels Magic books, Meljean Brook who writes The Gaurdians books and Nalini Singh most known for her Pys-Changeling paranormal romances. So be sure to check this one out!
