Guardian Demon Cover Alert!
Wow! The cover for Meljean Brook’s Guardian Demon (to your right) has to be my favorite for this series, which is kind of perfect as it’s the final book. The book is slated for a May 7, 2013, release and here’s the back cover copy (via Meljean’s blog):
In this thrilling conclusion to the Guardian series, New York Times bestselling author Meljean Brook delivers another stunning page-turner, in which the fate of humanity depends upon a tortured warrior winning the trust—and heart—of the woman he wounded…
After a terrifying encounter in Hell destroys her trust in Michael, the Guardian’s powerful leader, former detective Andromeda Taylor is ready to call it quits as one of the angelic warriors and resume her human life again. But when demonic forces threaten her closest friends and she uncovers a terrifying plot devised by Lucifer, Taylor is thrown straight into Michael’s path again…
To defeat Lucifer, Michael needs every Guardian by his side—and he needs Taylor more than any other. The detective is the key to keeping his own demonic side at bay, and Michael will do anything to protect her and keep her close. And when Taylor manifests a deadly power, her Gift might tip the scales in the endless war between Heaven and Hell…or it might destroy them both with a single touch.

Fighting Nazis with Magic
This tidbit has nothing to do with books and everything to do with things that delight me. Megan S. from Stellar Four has a great post determining who is better suited to defeating the Nazis: Indiana Jones or Eglantine Price (played by Angela Lansbury in the Disney film Bedknobs and Broomsticks). Her sound reasoning is that the woman who learned magic via correspondence course—in the name of saving her country from the Nazis—is the clear winner. This tickles me. As much as I love Indy, Bedknobs and Broomsticks holds a special place in my heart. Plus: Magic bed. If you’d like a good laugh, or need more info on the movie check out the Stellar Four post.
