Cover Catch-Up (33): Stunning Sequels!

In "Cover Catch-Up" I share some covers that have either been recently revealed, or that I've just found and really want to share. 

Today I have two covers for sequels that I think are absolutely fantastic, and I'm desperately and eagerly waiting for them both!

The first cover that I have to share today is for A CONJURING OF LIGHT, the final book in V. E. Schwab's SHADES OF MAGIC trilogy!!!

A CONJURING OF LIGHT (Shades of Magic #3) by V. E. Schwab
Publisher: Tor Books
Release Date: February 21, 2017

The battle between four magical Londons comes to a head in this stunning finale to the New York Times bestselling Shades of Magic trilogy by rising star V. E. Schwab

London's fall and kingdoms rise while darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire—and the fraught balance of magic blossoms into dangerous territory while heroes and foes struggle alike. The direct sequel to A Gathering of Shadows, and the final book in the Shades of Magic epic fantasy series, A Conjuring of Light sees Schwab reach a thrilling culmination concerning the fate of beloved protagonists—and old enemies.

A GATHERING OF SHADOWS was pretty much my top read of 2016, so it should come as no shock that I'm eagerly awaiting A CONJURING OF LIGHT...and I think the cover is fantastic! The covers in this series are so well matched, and they show a really interesting progression as the story continues, too! I absolutely CANNOT wait to get this book in my hands, and I just know that this cover is going to be just as fabulous in person!

The second cover that I have today is for the Canadian version of A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE, the sequel to Kelley Armstrong's CITY OF THE LOST!

A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE (Casey Duncan #2) by Kelley Armstrong
Publisher: Random House of Canada
Release Date: February 7, 2017

People disappear to Rockton so no-one can find them. But the trouble is people also disappear from Rockton. New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author and master of thrills Kelley Armstrong returns to Rockton for more page-turning suspense, following her #1 national bestseller, City of the Lost.

It's winter in Rockton, a little town hidden deep in the wilds of the Yukon. The town exists for people who need to escape their pasts, though it's not clear if those in hiding are victims or perpetrators. Or, when the lines gets blurred, maybe both. Ask Casey. She's been used, betrayed, beaten. But she's also killed someone. She moved to Rockton to help her best friend, Diana. Ex-best friend. Diana lied to get Casey to come with her; she used her and she almost got her killed. But Casey decided to stay anyway, to work as a detective alongside her new boyfriend and the town's sheriff, Eric Dalton. Fresh off solving a series of grisly murders, Casey and Deputy Will Anders get stranded in a blizzard while they're tracking a runner from the town. Seeking shelter in a cave, they stumble across a woman who's been imprisoned in a deep well. Nicole Chavez--whom everybody thought had run away from town and died in the woods more than a year earlier--is alive. Barely. But she can't identify her captor: she's never seen his face.
Was she taken by one of the hostiles who inhabit the wilderness around the town? Or is Casey facing something even worse? In a town where everyone lies about their past and lives under assumed identities, it's very easy to hide your true nature...

CITY OF THE LOST was another one of my favourite reads in 2016, so I can't wait to dig into A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE! I'm extremely excited for more of Casey and Dalton, and I really, really love this cover! It matches so well with CITY OF THE LOST (cover to the right). I love how they both have the trees, and the animal silhouettes. I think they're so intriguing, and I just know that A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE will be just as gorgeous in person as CITY OF THE LOST is!

What do you think?
Are you a fan of these two covers?
And who else is ridiculously excited for these books?
