'The Empty Grave' By Jonathan Stroud Gets Official Cover (US And UK Editions) #CoverReveal

If you are interested to know the fates of Lockwood, Lucy, George, Holly, and Quill Kipps, then come in, come in! We are into the fifth book in the hair-raising Lockwood and Company series and I am just clamoring to uncover the mysteries and find answers to many hanging questions.

I have already preordered my copy over Amazon and I am excited to read it already. It will be out a few days before my birthday, but in the meantime, here are the gorgeous cover art of the fifth book, The Empty Grave.

Synopsis

Five months after the events in THE CREEPING SHADOW, we join Lockwood, Lucy, George, Holly, and their associate Quill Kipps on a perilous night mission: they have broken into the booby-trapped Fittes Mausoleum, where the body of the legendary psychic heroine Marissa Fittes lies. Or does it?

This is just one of the many questions to be answered in Book 5 of the Lockwood & Co. series. Will Lockwood ever reveal more about his family's past to Lucy? Will their trip to the Other Side leave Lucy and Lockwood forever changed? Will Penelope Fittes succeed in shutting down their agency forever? The young agents must survive attacks from foes both spectral and human before they can take on their greatest enemy in a climactic and chaotic battle. And to prevail they will have to rely on help from some surprising--and shadowy--allies.

Jonathan Stroud once again delivers a rousing adventure full of danger, laughs, twists, and frights. The revelations will send readers back to Book 1 to start the series all over again.

The Empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud will be released on September 12, 2017.

Cover Reveal: Magnus Chase And The Gods Of Asgard: The Ship Of The Dead by Rick Riordan

The finale of the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series is looming in the horizon and it's not coming any faster than I should have anticipated. This series is by far my most favorite Rick Riordan Tales, even better than Percy Jackson's and Jason Grace's yarns.

This book, which is the third in the series, is called The Ship of the Dead and I am really hoping that this will not be the last that will see Magnus Chase and the usual gang. And for your satisfaction the official cover of the said book has been revealed along with some Rick Riordan Presents news over at Publisher's Weekly.

Check out this fantastic cover of Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Ship of the Dead. Once again the art was crafted by the ever-surprising John Rocco.

And speaking of the ship of the dead, which may refer to Naglfar or Naglfari, here is what Wikipedia has to say about it.

Naglfar or Naglfari is a boat made entirely from the fingernails and toenails of the dead. During the events of Ragnarök, Naglfar is foretold to sail to Vígríðr, ferrying hordes that will do battle with the gods.

Synopsis

Magnus Chase, a once-homeless teen, is a resident of the Hotel Valhalla and one of Odin's chosen warriors. As the son of Frey, the god of summer, fertility, and health, Magnus isn't naturally inclined to fighting. But he has strong and steadfast friends, including Hearthstone the elf, Blitzen the dwarf, and Samirah the Valkyrie, and together they have achieved brave deeds, such as defeating Fenris Wolf and battling giants for Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. Now Magnus and his crew must sail to the farthest borders of Jotunheim and Niflheim in pursuit of Asgard's greatest threat. Will they succeed in their perilous journey, or is Ragnarok lurking on the horizon?

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan will hit bookstores on October 3, 2017.
