Hardcover
The Wicked King by Holly Black

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Blood Spell by C.J Redwine

Blue de la Cour has her life planned: hide the magic in her blood and continue trying to turn metal into gold so she can help her city’s homeless. But when her father is murdered and a cruel but powerful woman claims custody of Blue and her property, one wrong move could expose her—and doom her once and for all. The only one who can help? The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan.

Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating tension among the families makes the search nearly impossible. He’s surprised to discover that the one person who makes him feel like he can breathe is Blue, the girl who once ruined all his best adventures.

When mysterious forces lead to disappearances throughout Balavata, Blue and Kellan must work together to find the truth. What they discover will lead them to the darkest reaches of the kingdom, and to the most painful moments of their pasts. When romance is forbidden and evil is rising, can Blue save those she loves, even if it costs her everything?

The Deceivers by Kristen Simmons

Pretty Little Liars meets Ocean’s 11 in this intrigue-filled contemporary drama from acclaimed author Kristen Simmons.

Welcome to Vale Hall, the school for aspiring con artists.

When Brynn Hilder is recruited to Vale, it seems like the elite academy is her chance to start over, away from her mom’s loser boyfriend and her rundown neighborhood. But she soon learns that Vale chooses students not so much for their scholastic talent as for their extracurricular activities, such as her time spent conning rich North Shore kids out of their extravagant allowances.

At first, Brynn jumps at the chance to help the school in its mission to rid the city of corrupt officials–because what could be better than giving entitled jerks what they deserve? But that’s before she meets her mark–a senator’s son–and before she discovers the school’s headmaster has secrets he’ll stop at nothing to protect. As the lines between right and wrong blur, Brynn begins to realize she’s in way over head.

Haittie de Audrey Dumont

Haittie est sauvage, torturée. Serveuse au Pink depuis des années, elle sacrifie sa vie pour les autres, pour ses amies, toujours postée dans l’ombre prête à intervenir en cas de besoin.
Le reste du temps elle trouve refuge dans sa maison située au bord de l’océan, seule dans son monde ne laissant personne y pénétrer, dans l’unique but de se préserver.
Depuis ce fameux soir, celui qui a changé le cours de son histoire, Haittie se méfie des hommes et de leur cruauté, persuadée qu’ils sont le mal absolu.
Mais par amitié pour Monroe, elle va bousculer son existence et accepter d’héberger quelques semaines Bradley, ce flic un peu fou loin des normes, au paradoxe de sa personnalité malgré la méfiance qu’elle éprouve vis-à-vis de lui.
Quand le feu et l’eau se rencontrent. Quand le jour et la nuit cohabitent, cela peut générer de sacrés dégâts.
Bradley saura-t-il gagner sa confiance, pourra-t-il redonner vie à Haittie, lui prouver que chaque être est unique, et que l’amour est plus fort que la haine

Comment sauver la peau d’un mort vivant de Hailey Edwards

Grier Woolworth passe ses nuits à parcourir les rues du centre-ville de Savannah pour conter à des touristes des histoires d’âmes perdues et autres tragédies à vous glacer le sang. Exception faite de la crinoline et de l’ombrelle, ce n’est pas le pire des boulots. Et même si le salaire est merdique, les pourboires suffisent à payer les factures d’électricité de son propre manoir hanté, et à approvisionner les placards en Ramens.
Pour une ex-assistante nécromancienne qui se cache parmi les humains, la vie est presque normale. Jusqu’au jour où la société qui a excommunié Grier lui offre une seconde chance d’être davantage qu’une fille ordinaire. Dommage qu’on n’ait pas jugé bon de la prévenir qu’être extraordinaire peut vous faire tuer.
Avertissement : Ce livre raconte l’histoire d’une ex-tôlarde/ex-héritière, qui a une perruche zombie pour animal de compagnie et dont le voisin n’est autre qu’un ex-soldat/ex-béguin. Attention, tous ces ex pourraient bien en cacher d’autres.
