What else could possibly go along with a shivery, thrilling new YA Paranormal by Rhiannon Frater and Kody Boye but a cover by Claudia at Phatpuppy Art? I can’t even think of any more superlatives to heap on Claudia anymore – her covers just make me..gaaaah. She’s done some others for Rhiannon (Pretty When She Kills, The Last Bastion of the Living and the new covers for The Tale of the Vampire Bride and The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride) that are amazing too and she really has a feel for the characters. Just looking at the cover, knowing the way they all work together – I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
The Midnight Spell
By Rhiannon Frater and Kody Boye
Publication Date: February 2013

Best friends since kindergarten, Adam and Christy have always been the perpetual outsiders in their small town in Texas. The other kids call Adam gay and Christy a witch.
On both counts the bullies are right.
Their junior year in high school seems destined to be the same old same old until Christy decides to cast a love spell for Adam at the midnight hour. The next day an alluring and mysterious boy enrolls at school and sets hearts a flutter, including Adam’s. Meanwhile, Christy’s mad crush on the handsome football player Ian seems to be going nowhere fast and her witch puberty is making her life miserable.
When a great evil arrives in town that threatens everything they hold dear, the best friends realize that finding a boyfriend is the least of their worries. Soon Adam and Christy will have to battle a force of darkness that has killed in their town before, and will again.
