The official patter:
"In this epic sequel to 2009's Prospero Lost, Lamplighter continues the Amberesque adventures of an ancient family caught up in matters of mythic significance. The immortal sorcerer Prospero is missing, sucked into Hell after one of his plans went awry. His far-flung, quarrelsome children have come together for the first time in years to face down the ever-present threat of the Three Shadowed Ones, who hunt them for the legendary magical artifacts they possess. As Miranda, Prospero's ever-dutiful eldest child, struggles to keep her siblings in line, she's repeatedly thrown off guard by a series of unsettling revelations. The only false note is a pivotal scene where a monster rapes a woman to steal her power. The story is convoluted and occasionally overwrought, but the rich imagery, fast pace, and masterful use of mythology make this a real page-turner."

I picked up the first book in this series due to it's haunting cover, and now I can't wait to add this to my shelves as well.

The official patter:
"The original Gossip Girl cast returns in a reimagination of their high school days in which Blair and Vanessa become unlikely roommates! Blair and Serena were BFFs ...until Blair discovered that her boyfriend, Nate, cheated on her with Serena! As if that wasn't enough, Serena then disappeared without a word. Now she's back and trying to make amends with Blair. Too bad Serena's former best friend has no intention of forgiving her. After seeing Serena with her new boyfriend, Dan, Blair intends to respond in kind! Will a photo of Dan kissing Blair put an end to Serena's budding relationship ...? "

They've made Gossip Girl into a Manga. Please stop, my sides hurt from laughing. The tears they won't stop. Seriously, stop it.


Gossip girl, Manga style..mmm..I don't know how I feel about that.
The first book looks really good. :)

I know... it just seems very very odd (the manga).
