Hardcover
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.

Warrior of the wild by Tricia Levenseller

How do you kill a god?

As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: to win back her honour, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying.

Comics
The Umbrella Academy 1

In an inexplicable worldwide event, forty-seven extraordinary children were spontaneously born to women who’d previously shown no signs of pregnancy. Millionaire inventor Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of the children; when asked why, his only explanation was, “To save the world.”

These seven children form the Umbrella Academy, a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers. Their first adventure at the age of ten pits them against an erratic and deadly Eiffel Tower, piloted by the fearsome zombie-robot Gustave Eiffel. Nearly a decade later, the team disbands, but when Hargreeves unexpectedly dies, these disgruntled siblings reunite just in time to save the world once again.

Le passeur d’ombres de Claire McFall

Dylan est saine et sauve. Elle a échappé de justesse à un terrible accident. Du moins, c’est ce qu’elle croit. Car le paysage désolé qui l’entoure n’a plus rien de l’Écosse. C’est une plaine dévastée hantée par des esprits. Et le garçon qui l’y attend n’a rien d’ordinaire.Il s’agit de Tristan, le Passeur chargé de l’amener dans l’au-delà. Mais cette fois, tout est différent. Car cette fois, Tristan brise le plus sacré des interdits. Il tombe amoureux. Et cette transgression pourrait bien lui coûter son âme… ou celle de Dylan.

 

 

Paperback
Soul in darkness by Wendy  Higgins

People travel from afar to the small isle in the Aegean Sea hoping for a single glimpse of Princess Psyche. Their adoration for the mortal woman is so all-consuming that citizens begin to shower her with the very gifts and offerings they once left at the alter of Venus, goddess of love and beauty.

But gods are known for their jealousy.

Cupid, the god of love, takes pleasure in causing strife and mischief in the lives of humans. He uses love as a weapon, humoring in the weakness of people at the whims of their feelings. When his mother Venus approaches him about punishing the human girl who dares to steal her offerings and affections from the people, Cupid gladly accepts.

Psyche’s punishment is to be given to a mysterious creature who only comes to her in the dark of night under the pact that she will never lay eyes on him. She is terrified of this stranger, who the oracle described as a serpent. Her mate, however, is masterful in his dealings with his bride. He takes his time, morphing her fears into different sensations completely.

Based on the Roman/Greek mythology of Cupid and Psyche by Lucius Apuleius, New York Times bestseller Wendy Higgins brings the tale to life, weaving layers that show exactly how a sacrificial lamb can be enchanted by an unseen monster.

Adult Historical Fantasy. Standalone.

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.

Invitation to the blues by Roan Parrish

Eight months ago Jude Lucen fled his partner, his career, and a hospital in Boston after a suicide attempt. Now back in Philadelphia, he feels like a complete failure. Piano has always been his passion and his only escape. Without it, he has nothing. Well, nothing except a pathetic crush on the most gorgeous man he’s ever seen.

Faron Locklear came to Philly looking for a fresh start and has thrown himself into tattooing at Small Change. He’s only met Jude a few times, but something about the red-haired man with the haunted eyes calls to him. Faron is blown away by Jude’s talent. What he isn’t expecting is the electricity he feels the first time they kiss—and the way Jude’s needs in bed speak directly to his own deepest desires.

Jude and Faron fall fast and hard, but Jude has spent a lifetime learning that he can’t be what the people he loves need. So when the opportunity arises to renew his career in Boston, he thinks he has to choose: music, or Faron? Only by taking a huge risk—and finally believing he’s worthy of love just as he is—can he have the chance for both.

The Small Change series is set in the Middle of Somewhere universe and features crossover characters from that series. Each book can be read on its own.

Content warning: This book contains explicit discussion of depression, anxiety, attempted suicide, and feelings of worthlessness.

Will you play de Alicia Garnier

Les règles sont faites pour être brisées…

Alors que sa carrière de galeriste démarre à peine, Dawn rencontre l’homme idéal. Celui qui va l’aimer, la faire se sentir unique et combler toutes ses attentes. Sauf qu’en trouvant l’amour, elle a l’impression d’avoir perdu Garrett, son meilleur ami. Celui qui a grandi à ses côtés, qui partageait avec elle le goût du danger, des paris insensés, et qui apportait le brin de folie qui donnait du sens à sa vie…

Garrett n’en revient pas. Dawn en couple ? Avec ce type ? Monsieur Parfait a beau cocher toutes les cases, il n’a pas la moindre idée du diamant brut qu’est sa meilleure amie… Mais si Dawn ne voit pas que ce type est fade et banal, que peut-il y faire ? Rien. À part trouver, lui aussi, une copine. De préférence une qui causera à Dawn la même peine que celle qu’il ressent… Car tout ça n’est qu’un jeu, non ?

Le collier ensorcelé de Linda St Jalmes

Tandis que Kalaan, comte de Croz, jette l’ancre de sa frégate l’Ar Sorserez près des côtes est des Highlands, Isabelle, sa jeune sœur, se réveille brutalement dans un endroit plongé dans les ténèbres, un épais nuage de sable fin l’étouffant.

Désorientée, elle ne comprend pas ce qui lui arrive : un instant auparavant, dans sa chambre, elle attachait autour de son cou un somptueux et très antique collier égyptien ; le moment suivant, elle se retrouve à tousser et à suffoquer, comme d’autres personnes à ce qu’elle peut entendre, mais sans parvenir à les apercevoir.

Bon sang ! Où est-elle ? Et qui sont ces « autres personnes » ?
