Finished Last Week

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

f7ae9-ember

 Laia is a slave.

Elias is a soldier.

Neither is free.

Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk  the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear.

It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The family  ekes out an existence in the Empire’s impoverished backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They’ve seen what  happens to those who do.

But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy.

There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.

Aristote et Dante découvrent les secrets de l’univers de Benjamin Alire Saenz

 Aristote

Ari, quinze ans, est un adolescent en colère, silencieux, dont le frère est en prison. Dante, lui, est un garçon expansif, drôle,  sûr de lui. Ils n’ont a priori rien en commun. Pourtant ils nouent une profonde amitié, une de ces relations qui changent la  vie à jamais… C’est donc l’un avec l’autre, et l’un pour l’autre, que les deux garçons vont partir en quête de leur identité et  découvrir les secrets de l’univers.

Fight for Love – Real de Katy Evans

B- Real

 

 

 Star de la ligue underground, Tate Remington est un boxeur à l’animalité exacerbée dont le pouvoir de séduction rend  folles toutes les filles autour du ring. Depuis qu’il a croisé son regard, la seule femme à laquelle il pense, celle qu’il a  choisie, c’est Brooke, ancienne athlète de haut niveau qui, suite à un accident, s’est reconvertie dans la thérapie sportive.  Mais pour que leur histoire devienne bien réelle, Remington devra se dévoiler à Brooke… Deux caractères forts qu’un désir  charnel intense, pur et obsessionnel consume. Une histoire d’amour sous tension et des personnages d’une rare  complexité.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

something

 

 

 

Philadelphia 1876. The Dead are rising. A zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor Fitt. Whoever controls the Dead Army has  her brother. She avoids her mother’s choice of husband for the lab of Spirit Hunters, including the maddeningly stubborn  yet handsome Daniel. The situation threatens her reputation, and the lives of everyone in the city.

 

 

On Deck

The Veil (Devil Isle #1) by Chloe Neill

the veil

 Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was  engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that  humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil’s Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped  through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding  her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no  control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the  French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his  way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…
