The Struggle by Jennifer L Armentrout

De sombres étoiles de Amy A Bartol
Kyon Ensin dispose enfin de celle qu’il convoite depuis toujours : la prêtresse Kricket Hollowell capable de prédire le futur. Avec elle, son pouvoir est inégalable et il peut régner en Maître sur Éthar. Mais Kricket est fermement décidée à mener sa vie comme elle l’entend, aux côtés de Trey Allairis, son grand amour, et refuse de porter la couronne que veut lui imposer Kyon.
Au cœur de la guerre pour la domination d’Éthar et face au terrible clan Alameeda, qui nourrit les plus sinistres projets à son égard, Kricket ne peut se fier à personne. Pas même à Astrid, sa propre sœur.
Dans ce chaos, alors que la prophétie annoncée par sa mère semble sur le point de s’accomplir, Kricket – armée de la seule certitude qu’elle ne peut compter que sur elle-même – va devoir plonger dans un monde tourmenté pour tenter de changer son destin.
The Prophecy by Jennifer L Armentrout
History is on repeat…
Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that’s standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them — without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him — everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.
A price must be paid…
Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best — and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she’s not fighting just for herself — she’s fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.
For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled…
Devious by L.J Shen
Jusqu’où ira-t-il pour obtenir une seconde chance ?
Devious. Un nom synonyme de danger, de désir, de décadence. Le nom de celui qui lui a brisé le cœur. Rosie n’avait que dix-huit ans lorsque Devious l’a trompée avec sa sœur. Cette expérience l’a détruite, et elle s’est juré de ne plus jamais avoir affaire à lui. Mais voilà que, dix ans plus tard, Devious revient dans sa vie, encore plus sexy et surtout plus déterminé que dans ses souvenirs. Car, s’il est revenu, c’est pour une raison bien précise : obtenir une deuxième chance. Et Rosie sait qu’avec Devious la fuite n’est pas une option ; alors il ne lui reste qu’une seule solution : faire face au démon de son passé.
