A super special, two-for-one cover reveal! “Cold Fury”, by T.M. Goeglein, has been redesigned, as well as the second installment in the “Cold Fury” trilogy, “Flicker & Burn”! “Cold Fury” in paperback will be released in June 2013, and “Flicker & Burn” comes roaring onto the scene in August 2013!
AUTHOR: TM Goeglein
SLATED RELEASE DATE: June 2013 (Cold Fury)/August 2013 (Flicker & Burn) (Penguin – North America)
OFFICIAL BLURB: The thrill ride that began in Cold Fury kicks into high gear in Flicker & Burn, as the threats to Sara Jane Rispoli come at her from all directions. She continues the desperate search for her missing family, but this time she’s the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and ghostly white skin chasing her through the streets of Chicago in black ice cream trucks – they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They’re skeletal and ferocious, hell-bent on catching or killing her, but also a weird link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them.
While Sara Jane battles these new pursuers, she learns painful lessons about the phenomenon that possesses her, cold fury. At the same time, she’s uncovering buried secrets about the misdeeds of her family – old murders and blood vendettas – that might be connected to the disappearance of her mom, dad, and brother. The mysteries, violence, and constant state of chasing or being chased could be the undoing of her relationship with handsome Max Kissberg. Despite the love growing between them, Sara Jane can’t tell him the truth about her life, and fears for his safety.
Not only do the Ice Cream Creatures display the grisly amputated finger of her mom to prove their viciousness, and not only does Lucky, the Outfit Boss of Bosses, whistle in Sara Jane for a sit-down with deadly consequences, but her gorgeous cousin, Heather Richards, enters the scene, as well. All that matters to Sara Jane is saving her family and keeping everyone she loves alive and safe. But the forces she encounters, both external and the ones crackling inside of her, fight her every step of the way.
Comments: I don’t know about you guys, but I’m digging these redesigned covers for this trilogy. I know, I know, I usually bitch and moan whenever a publisher/author decides to do this, and there are a few exceptions where I feel like the change has been for the better. This is one of them. Though I did like the hardcover first print version of the cover for “Cold Fury”, I feel like this one really kind of illuminates (pardon the pun) the heart of the story. So for now, I’m liking it. And I definitely can’t wait to read “Flicker & Burn”!
