Review
Phantom Kiss by Chloe Neill

phantom-kiss

In this all-new novella from the New York Times bestselling author of Midnight Marked, Merit, Ethan, and the rest of Cadogan House crew discover that not all undead creatures are kindred spirits…

Vampires generally aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night, but Merit and Ethan are extra jumpy after a recent attack by a dark sorcerer. So when they learn that someone is messing with graves in Chicago’s cemeteries, stealing skulls and snatching souls, they fear that their powerful foe might be back for even more magical vengeance.

But after a specter begins haunting Cadogan House—and targeting vampires—they realize that their being taunted by an altogether different sort of monster. A ghoulish villain straight out of the Windy City’s urban legends is on the prowl—and he won’t stop until he’s killed again…

Includes a sneak peek of Blade Bound, the epic final novel in the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series.

French Book
Rebelle du desert d’Alwyn Hamilton

rebelle-du-desert

 

Amani vit dans le désert du Miraji. Elle n’a qu’un rêve : quitter sa ville, Dustwalk, et découvrir le reste du monde. Alors qu’elle participe à une compétition de tir, elle rencontre un jeune homme, Jin, qui est recherché pour trahison. Après quelques malentendus, ils se retrouvent à fuir Dustwalk ensemble, traversant le désert, combattant contre des goules et autres monstres surnaturels : des chevaux qui se transforme en sable dès qu’ils sont capturés.

 

 

A la place du cœur d’Arnaud Cathrine (dédicacé)

a-la-place-du-coeur

Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend le déluge. Il ne sait qu’une chose : à la fin de l’année, il quittera sa ville natale pour rejoindre son frère aîné à Paris. Paris, la ville rêvée. Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend aussi le miracle qui, à son grand étonnement, survient : Esther – sujet de tous ses fantasmes – se décide enfin à lui adresser plus de trois mots, à le regarder droit dans les yeux et à laisser deviner un “plus si affinités”
Nous sommes le mardi 6 janvier 2015 et le monde de Caumes bascule : le premier amour s’annonce et la perspective obsédante de la “première fois”. Sauf que le lendemain, c’est la France qui bascule à son tour : deux terroristes forcent l’entrée du journal Charlie Hebdo et font onze victimes…
À la place du cœur, c’est ça : une semaine, jour après jour, et quasiment heure par heure, à vivre une passion sauvageonne et exaltante ; mais une semaine également rivée sur les écrans à tenter de mesurer l’horreur à l’œuvre, à tenter de ne pas confondre l’information en flux continu avec un thriller télé de plus. Comment l’amour (qui, par définition, postule que le monde peut bien s’écrouler) cohabite-t-il avec la mort en marche ?
Comment faire tenir ça dans un seul corps, dans une seule conscience ? Comment respirer à fond le parfum de la fille qu’on aime et comprendre, dans le même temps, que le monde qui nous attend est à terre ?

Did I Mention I Love You by Estelle Maskame

dimily

When sixteen-year-old Eden Munro agrees to spend the summer with her estranged father in the beachfront city of Santa Monica, California, she has no idea what she’s letting herself in for. Eden’s parents are divorced and have gone their separate ways, and now her father has a brand new family. For Eden, this means she’s about to meet three new step-brothers. The eldest of the three is Tyler Bruce, a troubled teenager with a short temper and a huge ego. Complete polar opposites, Eden quickly finds herself thrust into a world full of new experiences as Tyler’s group of friends take her under their wing. But the one thing she just can’t understand is Tyler, and the more she presses to figure out the truth about him, the more she finds herself falling for the one person she shouldn’t – her step-brother.

Throw in Tyler’s clingy girlfriend and a guy who has his eyes set on Eden, and there’s secrets, lies and a whole lot of drama. But how can Eden keep her feelings under control? And can she ever work out the truth about Tyler?

Did I Mention I Love You is the first book in the phenomenal DIMILY trilogy, following the lives of Eden Munro and Tyler Bruce as they try to find their way in an increasingly confusing world.

Ebook
Balance Broken by Hilary Thompson

balance-broken

Balance Broken is the second in the Starbright series. In the first book, Justice Buried, Astrea fights to remain independent in a world which demands she submit to an ancient prophecy. In Balance Broken, she learns that independence means little when the world is depending on her.

The world cries for Order, but she’s igniting a revolution.

One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three cities. Now, Asphodel no longer lingers underground, and the Starbright Maiden of Justice has returned.

Everyone has faith in Astrea’s ability to save the world – but only she knows the dark truth about her powers.

Astrea teams with Stian, Lexan, and Zarea to enlist the help of Lord Hadeon of Tartarus. They hope Hadeon will aid in attacking Asphodel’s First Leader Keirna, but the Destroyer usually takes lives, not sides.

As Astrea discovers life outside of Asphodel, she begins to wonder whether the remaining world is too broken to save – especially since the price of freedom just might be her own life.
