Bloody Bookaholic's Commandment:

Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Tuesday 5 July 2011

Cover Revealed! A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink (New Series)!

Expected publication: 2012
by Dial Books for Young Readers
(Cover May Not be Final)

When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendents charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink masterfully weaves history with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.


"Her eyes found the exist in under five seconds.
The wall behind her, unstable enough that a good push might get her through.
The now-glassless panes at the front of the house, which she could reach in four long strides.
And the doorway in which the tall, shadowy figure now stood.
Obviously, a last resort.
She didn't know if she could be seen, but before she could weigh the wisdom in making a run for it rather than staying and hoping she hadn't been spotted, the figure spoke.

"I imagine you've already found all the exists." The voice was familiar and male. "You've all been well trained."

Michelle thinks of her new novel, A Temptation of Angels, as “Sexy Victorian/Steampunk lite.” She says, “It has all the elements that are important to me as a writer, but it's sexy and edgy and action-packed, too.”

That cover is just gorgeous!! It has a Prophecy of Sisters feel to it, from the cover you can kind of connect the books to the author. Plus if the summary wasn't enough to convince you how about that excerpt? I mean, the female lead seems pretty kick ass, a la Rose Hatthaway style. She found all the exists in 5 seconds flat, it's calculating how to get out of harms way with precision and she is still capable of using her wit in dire situations. I love her a little bit already! To bad we have to wait till freaking 2012 to meet her!


  1. Never read her other series, but my gosh this series looks good! Thanks for the heads up Tasch =)

  2. This sounds like the same world as her short story in the Kiss Me Deadly Anthology and I had really enjoyed that and wanted to know more about the world so definitely adding this to the TBR list :)
