Finished Last Week
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race are trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible—assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.
La Nouvelle Arche de Julie De Lestrange

Mathilde est l’une des premières. Aujourd’hui âgée de 20 ans, elle s’occupe des futures générations qui grandissent au Centre. Comme elle, ces spécimens n’auront pas d’enfance. Comme elle, ils naîtront, prêts à se battre, pour affronter l’ennemi invisible qui terrorise leur Communauté.
Aussi, lorsqu’un mal étrange frappe certaines unités, Mathilde cherche à tout prix le moyen de les sauver. Et ce qu’elle découvre pourrait bien remettre en cause sa propre humanité.
Mais peut-on être seule à changer le monde ?
Désormais, elle n’a plus qu’une alternative : se taire. Ou combattre.
Bloodwitch by Susan Dennard
Fans of Susan Dennard’s New York Times bestselling Witchlands series have fallen in love with the Bloodwitch Aeduan. And now, finally, comes his story.
High in a snowy mountain range, a monastery that holds more than just faith clings to the side of a cliff. Below, thwarted by a lake, a bloodthirsty horde of raiders await the coming of winter and the frozen path to destroy the sanctuary and its secrets.
The Bloodwitch Aeduan has teamed up with the Threadwitch Iseult and the magical girl Owl to stop the destruction. But to do so, he must confront his own father, and his past.
Six de Coeur de L.H Cosway
Approchez et faites la connaissance de Jay Fields, illusionniste, mentaliste et manipulateur.
Je réfléchis en trois dimensions quand vous pensez en lignes droites.
Je vous montre une table et vous croyez voir une chaise.
Fumée, miroirs, tours de passe-passe… Je détourne votre attention. Je fais mes tours et vous abuse.
Mais surtout, je vous en mets plein les yeux.
On pense que j’ai tué un homme mais je n’ai rien fait.
Cela fait partie de mon plan.
La vengeance. Voilà ce que je désire. Pour moi, et pour elle.
Pour nous six.
Elle ne se souvient pas de moi, mais pourtant, elle est la clé de tout. Ma récompense au bout du chemin – enfin… si je parviens à me retenir de l’approcher.
Allez, choisissez une carte. Entrez et assistez au spectacle. Regardez mes mains, scrutez-les avec attention et oubliez ce qui se passe à côté… pendant que je détruis votre univers depuis la scène, juste ici, sous les projecteurs.
La terre des vikings de Margaret Moore
Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones
Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
A curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Fall in love, break the curse.
It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.
Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.
Break the curse, save the kingdom.
A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.
Poisoned in Light by Ben Alderson
Magicks collide in the third and final installment of the M/M fantasy The Dragori Series by Bestselling Author Ben Alderson
Zacriah is imprisoned within the city of Lilioira which is firmly under the control of Gordex. Separated from Hadrian and his allies, he tries to deal with a darkness that grows within him. A new, deadly power. Heart Magick.
The Druid will stop at nothing to retrieve the final Dragori to complete his ultimate plan of raising his kin once again. And all it takes is one failed rescue mission to set the wheels of doom in motion.
Time is not on the side of light.
War brews upon the horizon.
The Tesla Legacy by K.K Perez
THE TESLA LEGACY follows a precocious young scientist named Lucy Phelps whose fateful encounter in the Tesla Suite of the New Yorker Hotel unlocks her dormant electrical powers. As Lucy struggles to understand her new abilities through scientific experimentation, she is thrust into a centuries old battle between rival alchemical societies.
One side wants her help and the other wants her dead, but both believe she is the next step in human evolution. Unfortunately, carriers of the genetic mutation—including Nikola Tesla—have a greatly reduced life expectancy. Even if Lucy can outrun her enemies, she can’t outrun herself.
