Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr: Cover Reveal and Excerpt

Carnival of Souls
I absolutely love Melissa Marr, which is why I'm excited for her new series Carnival of Souls. It's slated for release September 4th 2012. Until then, read an excerpt from the book! Also check out an article about the photography behind the cover at USA Today. It's pretty interesting. They literally set the mask on fire!

In a city of daimons, the Carnival of Souls hosts a deadly competition. Once in a generation, every citizen can fight to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures—if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live. In our own world, Mallory knows that her father—and every other witch—fled the daimons’ city long ago. She trains to be lethal because it’s only a matter of time until the daimons catch up with them. While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City knows of her. There are plans there for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence that is the Carnival of Souls.

The synopsis sounds like The Hunger Games meets demons. I can't wait! What do you think? Like the cover? Interesting premise? Thoughts below!

  1. I'm only wishing that I would have discovered this novel a few years down the road so that I'd be able to move right along to the next in the series. The waiting is the worst...! :)
