Cover Art - P.C. Cast YA's Added to Harlequin Teen Line-up

It's has been a busy week for author P.C. Cast. On her blog today she announced that two of her young adult titles, ELPHAME'S CHOICE (2004) and BRIGHID'S QUEST (2005) will be re-issued as part of the new Harlequin Teen line-up and will be available in late September and March 2010 respectively. These titles will follow the launch of Rachel Vincent's MY SOUL TO TAKE (August) and Gena Showalter's INTERTWINED (September).

From her blog, P.C. Cast says -
Both are set in my fantasy world of Partholon, one hundred and twenty five years after the events of my adult trilogy: DIVINE BY MISTAKE, DIVINE BY CHOICE, DIVINE BY BLOOD. Elphame and Brighid are coming of age stories in a fantasy setting. I love these books and am so glad Harlequin is breathing new life into them. I think fans of House of Night will adore them!
Here is a comparison of the new and old covers. P.C. Cast has images of the full cover flats on her blog. I haven't read these, but being set in the same world as the Divine series I expect they will be terrific. The new designs certainly mesh well with the modern look of the Harlequin Teen line.

  3. We'll be interested to see what people think of the covers and whether they create different expectations in readers. Thanks for posting!

  4. Tashya not sure but certainly the cover style (dark tones, photo image of young teen) is reminiscent of the HoN covers and I expect they hope readers will make the connection and buy on the strength of P.C. Cast's name.
