I stumbled upon some info on ‘Poison Tree‘, including the revealed cover and a short synopsis. After a quick trip to www.loc.gov, I confirmed that more info is showing up now.
PT also has an official release date: July 10th, 2012!
Unfortunately I could not locate a price for the hardcover version, only a Kindle edition. I hope that RandomHouse isn’t moving to only ebooks for AAR!
The LOC synopsis says that it takes place at SingleEarth, and that Alysia is the main character. The Amazon synopsis is vague as anything, though confirms that all of Amelia’s creatures will be sharing the spotlight in this one! On the LOC page, too, one of the filers there put in a question as to whether or not this is a sequel to Midnight Predator. With the Bruja Guild mentioned, it very well might be!

Vote: POISON TREE COVER — HOT or NOT?
Personally, this is my least favorite cover I’ve seen so far. Which is a shame. I like the re-printed Den of Shadows covers better, and they were not that hot (especially compared to the original Forests or Demon covers.)
It just reminds me of something you’d find on deviantart in fanart–but if it was fanart, we’d probably know more about what was going on! Is this girl a witch? A vampire? A shapeshifter? A human?
I guess I was hoping for a little more visual hinting on what we’ll find inside. We’ve seen shapeshifters, vampires, hunters, healers and some Tristes before… an exciting cover showing some of those would have been appropriate!
So… What do you think? Leave your vote in the comments!
