Injustice Tome 6
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.
Crush de T. Gephart
Tia Monroe est une jeune femme intelligente, vive et accomplie. D’accord, elle est aussi légèrement toquée – la vie n’est jamais ennuyeuse avec elle – mais ça fait partie de son charme. Et même si elle ne se voit pas comme une « beauté classique », elle ne manque pas d’options quand il s’agit de petits copains. C’est juste qu’aucun n’a su retenir son attention.
Jusqu’à ce qu’elle pose les yeux sur Eric Larsson. Là, ce fut le désir au premier regard.
Les cheveux blonds, les yeux bleus, une carrure d’un mètre quatre-vingts incroyablement sexy, il incarne le mélange parfait entre chaleur torride et flegme à toute épreuve. Un sourire de sa part suffit à la retourner de l’intérieur, lui procurant des frissons délicieux. Et s’il n’y avait que son apparence… mais il est également brillant et drôle – adorablement charmant, en somme.
Le seul problème… c’est que Tia ne l’a jamais rencontré.
Eric Larsson est l’un des acteurs les plus en vue d’Hollywood, une star au sommet de sa carrière qui ne laisse que des petites culottes désintégrées sur son passage. Celle de Tia n’échappe pas à la règle, mais elle ne se fait pas d’illusions. L’amour, le mariage et les enfants ne font pas partie de son fantasme. Elle veut simplement le rencontrer. Juste une fois. Une seule. Elle se dit que le voir en chair et en os lui permettrait d’en finir avec cette obsession.
C’est donc fermement décidée à oublier Eric qu’elle se lance dans une véritable mission pour rendre cette rencontre réelle – si possible en évitant de devenir une criminelle recherchée.
Ce qui est sûr, c’est qu’elle aura une sacrée histoire à raconter.
Fleurir de Jade Rivers
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.
To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can’t yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.
Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.
Paris in 1789 is a labyrinth of twisted streets, filled with beggars, thieves, revolutionaries—and magicians…
When smallpox kills her parents, Camille Durbonne must find a way to provide for her frail, naive sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on petty magic—la magie ordinaire—Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy the food and medicine they need. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family’s savings, Camille must pursue a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.
With dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into the ‘Baroness de la Fontaine’ and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for la magie. There, she gambles at cards, desperate to have enough to keep herself and her sister safe. Yet the longer she stays at court, the more difficult it becomes to reconcile her resentment of the nobles with the enchantments of Versailles. And when she returns to Paris, Camille meets a handsome young balloonist—who dares her to hope that love and liberty may both be possible.
But la magie has its costs. And when Camille loses control of her secrets, the game she’s playing turns deadly. Then revolution erupts, and she must choose—love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, freedom or magic—before Paris burns…
Splintering Reality by Catherine Kopf
When Ambert gets a hold of a notebook containing The Regime’s fatal flaw, all eyes lie on him as he searches for an answer to stop Dreamers and The Regime from war. If he wishes to keep his friends safe, he can’t let them discover his secrets — including his past with the elusive Commander.
He’s not the only misfit in the crowd. Branded as an oracle, Calista has nowhere to hide. Her dreams predict the future, and they now might be the only key to saving Wes’ sister and protecting the growing rebellion. If she learns to trust the rebel lurking inside her.
One false move won’t just get them killed; it’ll fracture the growing resistance. Ambert and Calista must find the truth lurking in their creativity-centered world before The Commander splits apart their friendship — and with it, the rebellion itself.
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.
