Book Cover Love AND a Halloween Resolution

by Kathy F.

Yesterday, while perusing Pinterest this cover popped out and screamed READ ME!

First the title, A Barricade in Hell, got me simply because it sounds like something I would want to know more about (bravo). Some kind of battle against evil - check. Then the cover, just YES. At first glance I thought she was in a straitjacket in an asylum - the white gloves, the way she is holding herself, and the blue background. Then as I looked closer, it gave me a little "Yellow Wallpaper" feel with wondering if the prison is in her own mind. I dig this cover. I want to read this book. Of course, it comes out June 2014, so I have a bit of a wait.

That is okay though, because the first book, Delia's Shadow, is out now. I've had it on my never-ending TBR list and seeing the cover for book 2 made me reconsider book 1. This brings me to my first Halloween resolution:

I will read Delia's Shadow before Halloween.

Want to know more? Here is the blurb: "It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side.

Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest.

It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again.

And who is now aware of Delia’s existence."

Ghosts, murder and the fantastic San Francisco as a backdrop, this book is perfect for October.
