The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare II – Title Reveal!

It feels like only yesterday that we were announcing the signing of M.G. Buehrlen and The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare.

And even though Alex Wayfare’s first adventure only hit the shelves a couple of months ago, it’s already proven a firm favourite with our fans, certifying its place in the history of Strange Chemistry.

Now some might argue this an opporunity to put our feet up for a bit, have a cup of tea and bask in the glory of another great book. But not us, no instead we’re bringing you some big, exciting news. We’re officially revealing the title to the next Alex Wayfare novel!

Before we do though, just in case this isn’t enough Alex goodness for you, make sure to jump straight over to Young Adult Book Central who are also taking part in our reveal. They’re running a giveaway competition so make sure to get yourselves entered quickly!

But back to the reason why you’re here! Without further ado, the new Alex Wayfare story will be called:


The Untimely Deaths of Alex Wayfare

I think you’ll agree with us that it is a fantastic title! One that I’m sure has already got you guys hooked!

Until the sequel comes out make sure to keep your eyes glued to the Strange Chemistry site for plot information, cover reveals release dates and much much more!

Cover Reveal! Crushed by Eliza Crewe

If you visited the website for the first time ever this week, you could be forgiven for thinking that all we talk about is book covers. We’ll admit, we do love a good book cover and when our’s are so good-looking who can blame us. With that in mind we have a brand new, gorgeous cover to share with you today!

Crushed by Eliza Crewe is the sequel to last year’s Cracked and the second book in the Soul Eater series. Here’s a reminder of the description we brought you earlier this year:

“Meda Melange has officially hung up her monstrous mantle and planted her feet firmly on the holy and righteous path of a Crusader-in-training. Or, at least, she’s willing to give it a shot. It helps that the Crusaders are the only thing standing between her and the demon hordes who want her dead.

The problem is, the only people less convinced than Meda of her new-found role as Good Girl are the very Crusaders she’s trying to join. So when a devilishly handsome half-demon boy offers escape, how’s a girl supposed to say “no?”

After all, everyone knows a good girl’s greatest weakness is a bad boy.”

Ok I’ve dragged this out long enough, you know the title, you know the story, now have a look at the cover and tell us what you think!
