Uncovered (4): Rapture (Fallen Angels #4)

Thoughts: Ahhhh! I didn't even know that the cover for the fourth book in J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series had been revealed until this week. I think it was a pretty recent thing but I was surprised I didn't catch wind of it sooner. It has also come to my attention the next book, Rapture, will be coming out in hardcover instead of paperback like the other books in the series. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I don't really blame the publisher for wanting to capitalize on an author's popularity (they can't stay in business if they don't make money). However, I don't like the mid-stream switch. And not to degrade the genre, but I am much less likely to buy a hardcover copy of something like a romance or urban fantasy novel. It's not that I think they should be valued less but one of the reasons that I like that books in these genres are usually affordable and accessible. I am much more willing to pick up something I know nothing about if it's in paperback form. 

Anyway, rant over. I do like the new cover. It's kind of mysterious looking and the wings are very beautiful. I kind of miss having the male hero on the cover. It doesn't match the other covers in the series. I think this might have something to do with the hardcover thing. Perhaps when it's released in paperback, there will be a new cover that matches the themes of the older ones. At least I hope so. Overall I think the new cover is nice, but not mind blowing. I'll probably end up getting this one from the library and then purchasing it when it releases in paperback. That way, my books will match. :)

What do you think? Yay or nay on the new cover style? And will you be picking it up in hardback?

previous cover in the series



  1. OMG OMG OMG, i have been totally HANGING for this book to come out - this is one of my favourite series!
    I actually like the cover, kind of mysterious but i agree, it's not really in sync with the other covers - so fingers crossed they alter it some to match the others when it's out in paperback :)
    I agree though, i wont be buying this book until it's available in paperback - it's not that i have a thing against hardcovers but i'm weird with my books, if i start a series in paperback - then i buy the WHOLE series that way & all in the same size (so my shelves all look awesome & even - haha) - weird i know but it's just how i've always done it......
    With any luck they wont make me wait too long for the pb version but i guess everyone will have already read it before i get my hands on it - unless i buy it in e-book form & then replace it with the pb when it comes out! I do that on occasions as well now that i have a kindle!
    Cant wait to read it though :)

    1. hi kel,
      i feel exactly the same way. if i start off in hc then it's fine to continue. i just don't like that now my books won't match. i don't know i can wait a whole year so i'll probably get an ebook or go to the library. i can't wait to read it, either!
