White Cat by Holly Black

Cassel comes from a family of curse workers -- people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail -- he killed his best friend, Lila, three ears ago.

Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.

Starlighter by Bryan Davis

Jason Masters doubted the myths that told of people taken hrough a portal to another realm and enslaved by dragons. But when he receives a cryptic message from his missing rother, he must uncover the truth and find the portal before it's tooo late. At the same time, Koren, a slave in the dragons' realm, discovers she has a gift that could either save or help doom her people. As Jason and Koren work to rescue the enslaved humans, a mystic prophecy surrounding a black egg may make all their efforts futile.

I also got Starlighter this week. I've started reading it, not really sure how I feel about it though. It's definitely different from what I mostly read.
Hope you like White Cat. I'm still not sure on that one. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you think.

I'd never head of Starlighter before today, but it seems quite a few others received/bought it this week. I'm definitely going to look into it. Hope you enjoy your new books!

I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

P.S.- My release date if Friday the 13th (August this year) isn't that crazy?

The White Cat must be hotter then I thought. I just got done reading a reviews on this book at two different blog sites over the last two days. I found it cheap and picked it up and now it is in your mailbox.

I hope it is good! *Evil Grin*
