Cover Art - "The Bitter Seed of Magic" by Suzanne McLeod

Suzanne McLeod posted the cover to The Bitter Seed of Magic, the third book in her Spellcrackers series. The UK edition releases in September. Suzanne had this to say about the cover -
That's the White Tower - the oldest part of the Tower of London - behind Genny. The White Tower is the original square fortress started by William the Conqueror around 1080. Perched on the wall next to Genny are two of the Tower's Ravens. And yes, they play a part in the story.
On the surface, Genny's life seems ripple-free right now. Finn, her sexy boss, has stopped pushing for a decision on their relationship. The seductive vampire Malik al-Khan has vanished back into the shadows. And the witches have declared her no longer a threat. But unless Genny can find a way to break the fertility curse afflicting London's fae, she knows this is just the lull before the magical storm. Then a faeling - a teenage girl - is fished out of the River Thames, dead and bound with magic, and Genny is called into investigate. As she digs through the clues, her search takes a sinister and dangerous turn, exposing age-old secrets that might be better left buried. Then another faeling disappears, and Genny finds herself in a race against time to save the faeling and stop the curse from claiming its next victim - herself!


  1. Good cover! A pretty woman with a lonely/pensive expression, London architecture, and black birds who could be helpful (or not). Definitely something to arouse my curiosity to read the story.

  2. I love this series! Can't wait for book #3.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Doug! Much appreciated :-)

    Susan in AZ: Great it's aroused your curiosity ... and those ravens are helpful [or not] as you say *g*.

    Danielle87: Thank you! Hope you enjoy it :-)

  4. The wait for this series after seeing so much press on it over the last week is hard. Amazon shows that it won't be available in the US until later this year.

  5. I've read both books so far - by buying the UK versions from the Book Depository. They're very good, and I'm glad they're being release over here in the US.
