Hopefully she wouldn't be as obvious as to put Adam on the cover, however she didn't deny it either though.

I think we're just giving her the fuel to rev up the speculation pot Rolling Eyes

it´s kind of strange to ask if they would be so obvious and let the cover look like what´s in the book, until now, the covers always revealed the story...or not? I´m confused, I was so confused to see the cover and the title...
then someone mentioned it´s about the birds and I went crazy ...
naja, good to "know" it´s not about Adam...I´m not that interested in his story, at least not as a next book... Rolling Eyes

I've been browsing Nalini's twitter and she's said that we will probably know something about #12 early next year.

@NaliniSingh: Pleaseeeee end our suffering! When can we expect something, ANYTHING, about book 12?

I wonder if we will get an excerpt like we usually do? This is almost as bad as waiting for Sherrilyn Kenyon's Acheron was. Maybe worse, since then we knew who at least one of the main characters was.

I think Nalini's next release will be "Wild Invitation" which is coming out in March. 2 new novellas and 2 re-released novellas. I wonder if she'll put an excerpt in the back of this book?

I wouldn't read much into the covers: the previous German covers didn't give anything away, either. The pattern on the men's bodies were actually contradicting the content, and the hair etc. didn't really match, either, if I remember correctly. I mean, maybe this is the one time they DID in fact really think about the covermodel, but I actually kinda doubt it.

Mysterious touch.. I guess I can live with the title. LOL

Patricia, how close are the German titles to the English ones? If the German title is Mysterious Touch, what do you see the English title being?

hahaha, the German titels are....not good...mostly they don´t even have something in common with the english ones...
the first one´s called in German Leopardenblut (leopard blood) and if I remember correctly the title in English is Slave to Sensation....soo they don´t have that much in common...I mean ok the book is about a leobard, but that´s all....

Yep. German titles seldomly make any sense, so Nalini's actually lucky that the books weren't titled something like "The Mysterious Pirate's Bride", but apart from that.. They won't give much away in regards of the story or the US title right now. Maybe once we've all READ the book, but..

You know, Kenji and Jem. What if they would mate, where would they move? They are both lieutenants in different sectors, Jem in LA and Kenji somwhere in the mountains? Who would give up his/her sector? And what if a female lieutanent gets pregnant, would someone else step in for her or would the other lieutantents cover her sector as well?

Ashleydevlin - The other German covers all featured heroes with marks/tattoos, so.. But I do hope it's Kaleb. Just always argumenting AGAINST what I want, because of reasons. XD

''My fingers are crossed'' really want it to be kaleb's story. i was reading TON again today and hawk was being told by one of his lieutenant that water changeling were uneasy about something and they were afraid of someone and perhaps that's why they are allying with SD. And i was thinking that in cover a seashore was shown, so may be they had sahara *presuming it is sahara whom kaleb found*. But if it sahara then we might see faith and DR again.

Ashleydevlin, I'm trying to remember what book there is a mention of Kaleb's tattoo . . . do you recall if there was any kind of description of it? I tend to agree with Patricia that if all the German covers had H's with tattoos that this one is just a red herring.

Bella, I wondered that too about Kenji and Jem. I think that Kenji has the San Gabriel Mts which aren't too far from L.A. At least that's what my memory tells me from the time I lived in L.A.

Somewhere in Bonds of Justice, I think. Kaleb's careful not to have anyone see it, it's on his arm, as far as I can remember. There is no description, just that there may be clues related to it in a scene that Enforcement had gone through.

Found it! The scene is in Branded by Fire.

Putting down the briefcase he'd carried in, Kaleb took off his suit jacket and removed his tie before opening the first few buttons on his shirt and rolling up his sleeves. He never did the latter while outside his home.

No one could be allowed to see the mark on his forearm. Most would have no idea what it meant. Perhaps no one would know. But the PsyNet was the biggest data archive in the world- he couldn't take the chance that someone, somewhere, knew the story behind the mark.

I don't really read too much into book covers, they rarely follow the proper character descriptions, so the bird tattoo could be nothing more but the fancy of the cover designer. Just look at the giraffe marks they've used in PoP's German cover...or Sienna's black hair in KoS's audio book. Evil or Very Mad

But, for the sake of speculation...If the bird tattoo is a clue, then i'd say that it could indicate that the missing swan changeling could be the heroine. Or Adam could be the next hero...still, why the need for secrecy if it's going to be Adam?

We know too little about him as it is, and pre release info usually builds up interest for these 'unknowns', so when the book comes, it'd be easier to like these characters.
So I'm more convinced that book 12 will be about established characters, the ones that readers already love/are emotionally invested in.
Because it'd be foolish to waste the pre release 'tension' by not introducing an 'unknown' early, a reader tends to like a book more if they find the characters likeable as well, at least that's how it is for me.
And in an established/long running series where there are characters who already have their own followers, the risk of 'hating' the virtually unknown characters is higher, simply because he/she wasn't what the reader had expected/wanted.

Like me, I'm ready to go berserk if the book 12 hero turned out to be Bowen or Adam...or Barker! Gaaaahhhhh!!!

It would be amazing if the heroine was the swan changeling, unfortunatly I don't think she is. Maybe Kaleb the tattoo simbolizes the swan because it was an event that changed him, or maybe because he saw the swan's death... I don't know.....
I don't think it's a good thing to hide the couple in this book till the release date...Am I the only one that thinks like this?

Nalini has wrote on Twitter that ARCs for the next psy\changeling book are unlikely. All this secrecy about the next book is starting to get a bit grating. silent

It's Kaleb's book and Vasic is the ghost and his Very Happy last name is Adelaja.
That is my theory and I stand by it. Very Happy
Oh and Alice is Vasics HEA.

anyone wants to take bets?

There is also nothing to talk about when we know absolutely nothing. Sad
