The Book Of Ivy by Amy Engel

F-The Book of Ivy

Au nom de quoi seriez-vous prêt à tuer ?
À la suite d’une guerre nucléaire dévastatrice, la population des États-Unis s’est retrouvée décimée. Un groupe de survivants a fini par se former, mais en son sein s’est joué une lutte de pouvoir entre deux familles pour la présidence de la petite nation. Les Westfall ont perdu. Cinquante ans plus tard, les fils et les filles des adversaires d’autrefois sont contraints de s’épouser, chaque année, dans une cérémonie censée assurer l’unité du peuple. Cette année, mon tour est venu. Je m’appelle Ivy Westfall, et je n’ai qu’une seule et unique mission dans la vie : tuer le fils du président que je suis destinée à épouser. L’objectif, c’est la révolution, et le retour au pouvoir des miens. Peu importe qu’un cœur de chair et de sang batte dans sa poitrine, peu importe qu’un innocent soit sacrifié pour des raisons politiques. Peu importe qu’en apprenant à le connaître, je fasse une rencontre qui change ma vie. Mon destin est scellé depuis l’enfance. Bishop doit mourir. Et je serai celle qui le tuera. Née pour trahir et faite pour tuer… Sera-t-elle à la hauteur ? Book of Ivy est le premier roman d’Amy Engel, à la fois suspense insoutenable, dystopie cruelle et histoire d’amour torturée.

G-The Revolution of Ivy

 

Condamnée à l’exil pour ses crimes, Ivy se retrouve seule au-delà de la barrière qui protège les siens d’un monde hostile, dévasté par l’arme atomique des décennies plus tôt. Trahie par sa famille, abandonnée par Bishop, elle doit quitter Westfall et s’enfonce dans la nature sauvage et découvre qu’elle est habitée. Cette année, mon tour est venu. Mais la ville où elle est née se tord dans les convulsions d’un coup d’État, et le chaos ne tarde pas à régner. C’est un Bishop différent qui débarque dans le camp où Ivy s’est réfugiée, un Bishop qui a découvert, entretemps, plus d’une vérité. Il est temps pour la jeune fille de décider ce qu’elle compte faire : se venger ou… faire la révolution ? Le deuxième et dernier tome de la série The Book of Ivy clôt une saga dystopique où survie en milieu hostile, complots meurtrier et manipulations politiques se mettent en travers du chemin d’un duo à l’alchimie saisissante. Découvrez l’aventure finale d’Ivy, assassin devenue survivante !

 Dark Shadows by Toni Vallan

dark shadows

My name’s Ella Raimi.

Until last week, my life was pretty normal for a sixteen-year-old. Until I spent that awful night trapped in the janitor’s closet in utter darkness. Until the dreams began — suffocating, panic-filled dreams. My best friend Kyla stays with me, but the dreams still continue. And I wake each morning with cuts & burns on my skin. I don’t recall inflicting them.

And then there is the blood on my hands and my sheets when I wake up.

I’m afraid of myself and what I’ve done.

And I’m beginning to be more afraid of Kyla. And what she will do.

Genre :Horror/Thriller

 Dirty Lies by Emma Hart

dirty lies

Bad boy drummer Aidan Burke of Dirty B takes center stage inNew York Times bestselling author Emma Hart’s hotly anticipated follow-up to Dirty Past and Dirty Secret!

Aidan Burke is the perfect rebound guy for Jessie Law after she catches her asshole ex-boyfriend with his hands down some other girl’s pants. The world-famous drummer of Dirty B isn’t shy about his preference for no-strings-attached relationships, so when she meets him on a night out, she takes him up on his simple proposal: One night of fun. Hot sex. Zero expectations.

But Dirty B’s tour is over, and they’re back in South Carolina—which means running into Aidan more often than Jessie would like.

When Aidan saves Jessie from her ex-boyfriend by insisting the two are dating, the band’s manager convinces them to keep up the charade in the hopes of re-inventing Dirty B’s image as lovable bad boys, as opposed to d-bags. Now all Aidan and Jessie have to do is put on a very obvious, very public show to convince everyone their affection is real.

But pretending to be in a relationship is harder than it seems. Aidan’s hordes of jealous fans have no problem bombarding Jessie with threatening messages online—and worse. And things only get more complicated when Jessie realizes her feelings for Aidan may not be so fake after all. Can Jessie live with the risks? And is Aidan willing to let her?

Alice Takes Back Wonderland by David D Hammons

Alice takes back wonderland

After ten years of being told she can’t tell the difference between real life and a fairy tale, Alice finally stops believing in Wonderland. So when the White Rabbit shows up at her house, Alice thinks she’s going crazy.

Only when the White Rabbit kicks her down the rabbit hole does Alice realize that the magical land she visited as a child is real.

But all is not well in Wonderland.

The Ace of Spades has taken over Wonderland and is systematically dismantling all that makes it wonderful. Plain is replacing wondrous, logical is replacing magical, and reason is destroying madness. Alice decides she must help the Mad Hatter and all those fighting to keep Wonderland wonderful.

But how can she face such danger when she is just a girl?

Alice must journey across the stars to unite an army. She discovers that fairy tales are real in the magical world beyond the rabbit hole. But they are not the fairy tales she knows.

Fairy tales have dangers and adventures of their own, and Alice must overcome the trials of these old stories if she wants to unite the lands against Ace.

With the help of Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Snow White and heroes old and new, Alice may have the strength to take back Wonderland.
