This weeks choice:
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Mackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret – he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.
A month ago, Mackie might have told them to buzz off. But now, with a budding relationship with tough, wounded, beautiful Tate, Mackie has too much to lose. Will love finally make him worthy of the human world?
So I’ve seen this book a lot in the blogosphere and it intrigued me the moment I saw it, but it’s not due for release here in the UK until January 2011! Not only do the US get it first, in September 2010, I also think they win hands down when it comes to covers on this one. It was the US cover that attracted me to this book in the first place and it stuck in my mind ever since, where as the UK cover is ok…but to be honest, pretty forgettable and a lot like others in the genre. I could solve both my cover and waiting issue by buying the US edition…only the one place I can pre-order it right now wants almost £20 :-0 … So wait …it looks like I must!
Here’s a reminder of the US cover, which let’s face it is disturbing but difficult to forget! Which do you prefer?
