Here's my review for Chain Reaction. In short: A fantastic conclusion to the Perfect Chemistry trilogy. If you're a fan of the other books, I'm sure you'll love this one. If you haven't read them, I highly recommend that you do.

Author Interview: Lynn Rush and Wasteland Book Giveaway!

"
Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master's order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his dark enslavement.
The only obstacle-Jessica's distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what's left of his human soul."

Hey guys. Two posts today...

One is the Hemlock cover reveal over at the awesome YA Highway.

Then, over on my blog, I interviewed the art director behind the cover about the process the cover went through and her thoughts on cover design in general.
