The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Set in a darkly glamorous world, The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous but thrilling adventure.
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.
Supercherie de Jane Washington & Jaymin Eve
Willa Knight : Rurale. Esclave. Être non magique.
À Minatsol, être une Rurale signifie que vous ne valez littéralement pas mieux que de la merde. Willa est vouée à mener une existence d’esclave au service des Sol, des êtres dotés de magie qui pourraient se voir un jour choisis pour devenir des dieux.
Au moins, son village est suffisamment éloigné des villes des Sol pour qu’elle ne soit jamais forcée de se présenter à l’un d’eux…
Jusqu’à ce qu’une petite erreur change la donne et qu’un poste pour servir au « Bois des élus », la plus prestigieuse école des Sol au monde, lui soit attribué… situation qu’elle n’a assurément pas méritée.
Soudain placée sous le regard vigilant des dieux, elle sera chargée de servir les frères Abcurse, cinq Sol faits d’arrogance, de perfection et de pouvoir. Ils sont eux-mêmes presque des dieux et, à leur service, elle risque de finir condamnée à mort. À moins qu’ils ne fassent de sa vie un tel enfer qu’elle en viendra à le souhaiter.
D’une façon comme d’une autre, Willa est en galère.
Un coeur pour deux de Shivaun Plozza
But with a little brother who dresses like every day is Halloween, a vegan warrior for a mother, and an all-out war with the hot butcher’s apprentice next door, Marlowe’s life is already pretty complicated. And her second chance is about to take an unexpected turn…
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.
