The official patter:
"Nate Fludd, Beastologist, is back in the camel saddle in hot pursuit of a missing, deadly Basilisk—the King of Serpents. As if saving an entire Dhughani village from the Basilisk’s poisonous gaze isn’t difficult enough, Nate and Aunt Phil must begin to piece together the mystery of his parents’ disappearance and protect the lone copy of the Fludd Book of Beasts from a sinister man who always seem to be one step ahead of them. Pack your goggles, rue, and an extra pair of gloves and join Nate on another unbelievable adventure—there’s no rest for the world’s youngest beastologist-in-training!"

While not as close to my heart as the first book, the pace is still kept high and I can not wait for the next installment! My review of the ARC can be found here.

The official patter:
"Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris-- the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts fiercely alongside her. Now Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves and finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax-- but loving him means betraying her sister and has the potential to destroy all they've worked for.

Twenty-five-year-old Jackson Pearce delivers a dark, taut fairy tale with heart-pounding action, fierce sisterly love, and a romance that will leave readers breathless."

I have been uber excited for this book! In fact I just recieved an ARC in the mail before I left on my vacation so a review should be forthcoming. But how can you not like it? Look at that simply gorgeous cover! Also, I have been noticing it in bookstores already, so if you can't wait till tomorrow... maybe just pop round and see if they're early shelvers!


The cover IS really cool, but honestly I just read you got the ARC in the mail, and I thought: "What? She got the Primeval super-secret workplace in the mail? I don't understand..."

BBC Geek :P
