In My Mailbox - 11/13/10

Credit goes to The Story Siren for creating and hosting the In My Mailbox feature.

I only got one new book this week, and I haven't been reading much because I'm sick with a cold again. Ugh. :(

For review:

Sigrun's Secret by Marie-Louise Jensen

Their garments are black as night. They carry torches in their hands, darkness and anger in their hearts. They are coming.
When a dark family secret is exposed, Sigrun's peaceful life is shattered. Forced to pay for her parents' misdeeds, she finds herself exiled from all she knows - and from the boy she loves - for three long years. Yet more secrets lie ahead; not least the power Sigrun finds awakening in herself, seemingly passed to her from a mysterious amulet. Can she use her new-found gift to save herself and those around her from the dangers they face? And will true love wait until her return?

I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, Rebecca, I hope you feel better soon!

I've never heard of this book before, but it sounds good(it gives me associations to Scandinavia because of the MCs name and the author name :)).

I hope you enjoy your new book and that this coming week will be good to you :)

I agree about the middle book being more historical. Oh yes, that cover on goodreads does use the same image. If the dress isn't enough, you can tell from the lips like you said. It's a lot more disguised as being the same than on the other covers there. Thanks for spotting that- it makes me wonder how many other covers use that image!

You're so lucky to have Sigrun's Secret, I love Daughter of Fire and Ice so I can't wait to find out what happens to Bjorn and Thora through their daughter. I'm looking forward to your review- enjoy!.

I hope that you feel better soon and get lots of reading done this week :)
