In My Mailbox (#1)

I'm stoked! I went shopping this weekend with my mother, got a few paperback copies, one hardcover and a iBook. So, check them out :)

Mistwood by Leah Cypess

The Shifter is an immortal creature bound by an ancient spell to protect the kings of Samorna. When the realm is peaceful, she retreats to the Mistwood. But when she is needed she always comes.

Isabel remembers nothing. Nothing before the prince rode into her forest to take her back to the castle. Nothing about who she is supposed to be, or the powers she is supposed to have.

Prince Rokan needs Isabel to be his Shifter. He needs her ability to shift to animal form, to wind, to mist. He needs her lethal speed and superhuman strength. And he needs her loyalty—because without it, she may be his greatest threat.

Isabel knows that her prince is lying to her, but she can't help wanting to protect him from the dangers and intrigues of the court... until a deadly truth shatters the bond between them.

Now Isabel faces a choice that threatens her loyalty, her heart... and everything she thought she knew.

Nightspell by Leah Cypess

A stand-alone companion novel to the much-acclaimed MISTWOOD. When Darri rides into Ghostland, a country where the living walk with the dead, she has only one goal: to rescue her younger sister Callie, who was sent to Ghostland as a hostage four years ago.
But Callie has changed in those four years, and now has secrets of her own. In her quest to save her sister from herself, Darri will be forced to outmaneuver a handsome ghost prince, an ancient sorcerer, and a manipulative tribal warrior (who happens to be her brother).
When Darri discovers the source of the spell that has kept the dead in Ghostland chained to this earth, she faces a decision that will force her to reexamine beliefs she has never before questioned - and lead her into the heart of a conspiracy that threatens the very balance of power between the living and the dead.

Deadly Little Secret by
Some secrets shouldn't be kept...

Up until three months ago, everything in sixteen-
year-old Camelia's life had been fairly ordinary: decent grades; an okay relationship with her parents; and a pretty cool part-time job at the art studio downtown. But when Ben, the mysterious new guy, starts junior year at her high school, Camelia's life becomes anything but ordinary.

Rumored to be somehow responsible for his ex-girlfriend's accidental death, Ben is immediately ostracized by everyone on campus. Except for Camelia. She's reluctant to believe the rumors, even when her friends try to convince her otherwise. She's inexplicably drawn to Ben...and to his touch. But soon, Camelia is receiving eerie phone calls and strange packages with threatening notes. Ben insists she is in danger, and that he can help--but can he be trusted? She knows he's hiding something... but he's not the only one with a secret.

The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood
Jessamine Luxton has lived all her sixteen years in an isolated cottage near Alnwick Castle, with little company apart from the plants in her garden. Her father, Thomas, a feared and respected apothecary, has taught her much about the incredible powers of plants: that even the most innocent-looking weed can cure -- or kill.

When Jessamine begins to fall in love with a mysterious boy who claims to communicate with plants, she is drawn into the dangerous world of the poison garden in a way she never could have imagined . . . 

I'm excited to start reading all these books and once I'm done I'll be doing reviews on all of them, which I know you're all looking forward to (: 


  1. Awesome choices!!!! I have Mistwood, it sounds amazing, and I have read Deadly Little Secret, wasn't a huge fan of the first book, but book 2 and 3 are great! :D You'll have to let me know how The Poison Diaries is, I have the second book for review, but havent even read the first one yet lol:P let me know how it is! :)

    1. (Sorry it's been forever) The Poison Diaries was excellent! Instead of you're everyday stories about vampires and werewolves, you get a all new species. But I'm sure you've already read it by now haha. Oh I know! I didn't so much as like the first Deadly Little Secret book, but book 2 and 3 were great! I have yet to get book 4, but it seems it will be pretty good like the other too.

  2. Oohh... The Poison Diaries and Mistwood sounds interesting. Great haul :D

    Drop by my IMM?

    1. The Poison Diaries was great, but I didn't like Mistwood as much as I thought I would.

      I'll check it out (:
