Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

On My Wishlist

On My Wishlist is hosted by Book Chick City :)

This one is new to me! Don't know how it escaped my notice as it sounds fantastic! Saw it in the bookstore this weekend and I might just have to go back and bring it home.

June 2011 from Greenwillow

The Night of Souls—when the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest—is only days away.
Albion is at war . . . and losing.
The wardens have descended, kidnapping innocent citizens for their army, but looking for one in particular.
And fifteen-year-old Kate Winters has just raised a blackbird from the dead.
As her home is torn apart by the wardens, Kate's discovery that she is one of the Skilled—the rare people who can cross the veil between life and death—makes her the most hunted person in all of Albion. Only she can unlock the secrets of Wintercraft, the ancient book of dangerous knowledge. Captured and taken to the graveyard city of Fume—with its secret tunnels and underground villages, and where her own parents met their deaths ten years ago—Kate must harness her extraordinary powers to save herself, her country, and the two men she cares for most. And she'll make a pact with a murderer to do it.
Those who wish to see the dark, be ready to pay your price. (from Amazon) 

Originally released in the UK as Wintercraft, Shadowcry is it's US release title - new cover too!
UK Editions:
Wintercraft and Blackwatch

What do you guys think? Was this book on your radar already? Anyone in the UK read this one yet?
If you see it, pick it up - the cover really is beautiful! 

Thank you Book Chick City for hosting :) 
So, what's on your wishlist?


  1. That actually sounds pretty good ^^

    I have The Hollow on my wishlist, it's a new dystopian novel!


  2. I've read an ARC and it's quite good. But I haven't any clue why they changed the title to Shadowcry for the US edition = makes no sense in context of story... go figure.
