In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all

The Vanishing Girl de Laura Thalassa

the-vanishing-girl

Chaque nuit, après s’être endormie, Ember Pierce disparaît. Elle peut alors se téléporter n’importe où : à l’étranger dans une ville inconnue ou dans la chambre d’un garçon qui la fait craquer. Après dix minutes, son temps écoulé, elle retourne dans son lit. C’est un secret qu’elle a réussi à conserver pendant ces cinq dernières années. Mais, maintenant, quelqu’un d’autre est au courant.

Une semaine après son dix-huitième anniversaire, un garçon superbe, Caden Hawthorne, la kidnappe et la livre au gouvernement avant de disparaître sous ses yeux. Ember comprend alors deux choses : elle n’est pas seule et les gens comme elle – les téléporteurs – sont utilisés comme une arme.

Expédiée dans un camp d’entraînement quasi militaire, Ember découvre qu’on lui a affecté Caden comme partenaire. Ils doivent désormais travailler main dans la main lors de missions de téléportation pour le gouvernement, toutes plus risquées les unes que les autres. Mais Ember compte retrouver sa liberté et elle se rapproche de Caden, qui semble détenir la clef qui la fera sortir de cette prison. Si elle parvient à rester en vie !

Retreat by Jay Crownover

retreat

Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.

I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.

My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.

She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner bad-asses.
It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.

Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.

I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.

I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.

Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them.

These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

The Alchemist of Loom by Elise Kova

the alchemists of loom

Her vengeance. His vision.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

Alice de l’autre côté du miroir de Benjamin Lacombe

alice-de-lautre-cote-du-miroir

Après une très belle édition illustrée d””Alice au pays des merveilles””, Benjamin Lacombe sublime la distorsion du temps et de lespace avec “”De lautre côté du miroir””. Dans cette suite directe du chef-doeuvre de Lewis Carroll (traduite par Henri Parisot), Alice décide de passer “”de lautre côté du miroir”” et sy métamorphose ! De pion, elle deviendra reine. Le monde du miroir se présente comme un monde inversé. Lespace et le temps y sont mis à mal… Il faut courir très vite pour rester sur place ! Certaines pages se déplient à la façon dun plateau de jeu déchec et accompagnent la bascule dune dimension à lautre ; décors, personnages évoluent littéralement. Benjamin Lacombe se délecte en proposant ainsi une vision, une interprétation singulière de la beauté étrange dun monde, bercé par un délicieux mélange de poésie, dhumour et de non-sens, qui vise implicitement à former les plus jeunes.
