Coming from Gollancz in 2010 – new Paranormal Romance line!

Gollancz, the FANTABULOUS Sci-fi/Fantasy imprint of Orion Books has a new line of Paranormal Romance coming to the UK in 2010. I have known about this since their Autumn party and since then have waited with abated breath to see the covers and authors (I only knew about Nalini Singh) they are going to be releasing! I think the line has a lot of potential here in the UK especially after seeing the covers they came up with. Here are some of them:

Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series:

You probably know by now how much I LOVE this series (understatement of the millennium). I think the UK covers are WAY better than the US ones. And will you look at Lucas and dear lord, Judd (Caressed by Ice is my absolute favourite in the series) !

Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series:

Angels’ Blood, the first in the series is in my top 10 of 2009. I love the US covers for these but the UK covers kick-ass too.

Ann Aguirre’s Corine Solomon series:

LOVED Blue Diablo and can’t wait for Hell Fire. And I think the UK covers are as cool as the US covers.

So, what do you think? Like, dislike?

    Wow! Amazing covers.

    I was all excited when I saw the first two, then I actually read the text and realized they’re only new to the UK. Those covers definitely do their job!

    The covers are awesome. The Psy covers kick the US ones out of the water. Yeah, what’s between the covers is what matters but eye candy definitely helps!

    Oh, yay! I do like those covers. Well, except for the Angel’s Blood ones – I think I like the US version of that one better.

    I LOVE those covers! In my opinion, they’re about a thousand times better than the North American ones. I especially like the one for ANGEL’S BLOOD.

    LOVE these covers so much, I may actually get around to buying one Singh’s books! People have raved about her for ages, but the covers always gave me the creeps!
