Cover Release

A new YA read by new author Dina James.

To me this sounds like an amazing read with a world full of mystical and magical creatures.  One I will be looking into in the future.  As much as I love the amazing covers with a character depicted on it I enjoy the symbol covers as well.  I'm really curious about this one.  It looks kind of like a flower type in the background and the Celtic stars on top.  I wonder if this has to do with healers, or the world...

Due out:  October 11, 2011
Publishing Site Synopsis:

It's said that when opportunity knocks on your door, you have only one chance to take it.


No one said what you're supposed to do when it kicks it.


All Rebecca MacDonnell wants to do is get through high school with grades good enough to win a prestigious scholarship so that she can finally leave her miserable life behind. One evening, after a particularly bad day, she finds out that people other than her aging grandmother need her help, and desperately so.


Well, not “people,” exactly. Vampires, werewolves, demons, ghosts, goblins, and other things thought only imaginary all need help sometime, and Rebecca was born with the unique ability to heal ethereal beings. She is about to turn seventeen, the age at which her talent will manifest in its entirety, and become a true Healer…if she lives through the event. A war between various ethereal factions is brewing, and Healers are a valuable commodity to any side. Those who wish to harness Rebecca’s manifesting healing powers for their own purposes must get to her before her seventeenth birthday.


Only two vampires and a rogue werewolf stand between Rebecca and those determined to make her serve them, and the fact that Rebecca has no clue what she's doing doesn't exactly help matters.


Neither does being seriously attracted to more than one of those just trying to protect her.
For a soon-to-be seventeen-year-old Healer-in-training, that's a lot to handle.


Especially on top of her homework.
