Entombed in glass by Stacey Rourke

Mirror, mirror on the wall.
What’s behind that fated call?
He’s the seer of present, future, and past,
Yet remains a nameless face entombed in glass.

Raised as a servant in the underwater kingdom of Atlantica, Alastor worked his way up to a regal member of the Royal Guard. Only as a decorated soldier did he stand a chance of winning the hand of the woman he’s loved since childhood … Poseidon’s only daughter, Princess Vanessa. But, when the war against humans rages, dark magics are evoked to give the mermen a fighting chance. Temporarily granted legs, they charge from the sea into a doomed battle.

Doing the bidding of his masters as a trusted pawn,
The claims of his loyalty couldn’t be more wrong. 

Waking on land, with bodies all around, Alastor’s lone goal becomes returning to the ocean and the only life he’s ever known. A plan that is quickly diverted when Hades, Lord of the Underworld, appears with a twisted agenda all his own. Cast to a land far from the lapping comforts of home, Alastor’s sole companion is a troubled misfit named Sterling that soon comes to depend on him. Trained to be a hero, how far is Alastor willing to go to return to the woman he loves? And can he live with the sacrifices he’s forced to make?

Each day he schemes to break free from their thrall,
and honor a self-made vow … to kill them all.

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.

Unité d’élite de Loreline Bradern

Ils se sont rencontrés dans le noir.
Captifs d’un groupe terroriste, ils ont partagé la même cellule et, par sécurité, utilisé des faux noms.
Elle était Jessi. Lui, Woody.

Au milieu de l’enfer, sans jamais se voir, ils se sont chamaillés, désirés. Et il l’a sauvée au péril de sa vie.

Presque trois ans plus tard, Alyssandra travaille au sein des forces spéciales de la Navy, le Black Squadron.
Elle croit son Woody mort.
Leur histoire, fantasmée.
Leur passé, enterré.

Jusqu’à ce qu’une mission ébranle toutes ses certitudes…

 

 

On Deck

 

Kiss Collector by Wendy Higgins

When seventeen-year-old Zae Monroe gets cheated on by the only guy she’s ever loved, then watches her parents’ marriage crumble, she decides to forget about relationships and turn the tables on the boys of the world. It’s time to take what she wants, and what she wants are kisses. Athletes, musicians, poets, and bad boys—their lips are all on her agenda, and it’s time to collect.

Zae proposes a contest with her friends to see who can kiss the most boys during spring break. But what starts as a harmless competition leads to a downward spiral she can’t seem to break free of. As family, academic, friend, and guy drama come to a head, Zae is forced to face the reasons behind her boy angst, and starts to wonder if she was wrong about the male race…or at least some of them.

Fallen Empire by K.N Lee

They say the Age of Dragons ended after the War on Magic, but hiding in the forgotten lands remains one clan.
While Kylan hunts firedrakes by day, he prepares for a journey across the Sea of Dreams where mermaids thrive and the key to his people’s survival is prophecized to be hidden.

Amalia, a Mage, escaped The Brotherhood, a sect of monks who seek the descendants of the gods once. Now, unable to return to neutral territory where magic-users are safe, she finds herself fighting for survival amongst men who can turn into wolves, firedrakes, and a relentless monk who believes she can restore balance to the entire world.

For Amalia, the gods are not just a memory. They are her ancestors, and before she can learn to control her newfound gift, she will face the keeper of a forgotten empire.

A dragon.

In this sprawling epic fantasy novel with shifting wolf hybrids, dragons, and mermaids, Amalia’s first battle is for more than her life. It’s for the souls of every being born with magic. Join New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee on an adventure perfect for fans of Vikings and Game of Thrones.

The Vanishing Girl de Laura Thalassa

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 !
