Gift

From Karline (un brin de lecture)

Tithe by Chani Lynn Feener

Cursed with the sight and torn between forbidden loves, she will make the ultimate sacrifice.

Arden Archer is cursed: she can see the Unseelie fae. It’s a gift that sends the women of her family to an early grave. The only way to break the curse is to offer herself up as the Tithe. Every seven years, the faerie regents pit cursed humans against one another, offering salvation to both parties.

This year, Arden is one of those human competitors–a Heartless–and with the help of Unseelie Mavek Midnight, she intends to win. That is, until Eskel arrives, unearthing secrets and planting doubt. Can Mavek be trusted? Is there more to the Tithe than what Mavek had told her?

Torn between the Unseelie regent she’s loved and a human boy with a dark past, Arden must discover the truth before All Saints’ Eve, or risk losing her soul to a beautiful monster.

Black Heart by Holly Black

In a world where Magic is illegal.

Cassel Sharpe has the most deadly ability of all. With one touch, he can transform any object – including a person – into something else entirely. And that makes him a wanted man. The Feds are willing to forgive all his past crimes if he’ll only leave his con artist family behind and go straight. But why does going straight feel so crooked?

For one thing, it means being on the opposite side of the law from Lila, the girl he loves. She’s the daughter of a mob boss and getting ready to join the family business herself. Though Cassel is pretty sure she can never love him back, he can’t stop obsessing over her. Which would be bad enough, even if her father wasn’t keeping Cassel’s mother prisoner in a posh apartment and threatening not to let her leave until she returns the priceless diamond she scammed off him years ago. Too bad she can’t remember where she put it.

The Feds say they need Cassel to get rid of a powerful man who is spinning dangerously out of control. But if they want Cassel to use his unique talent to hurt people, what separates the good guys from the bad ones? Or is everyone just out to con him?

Time is running out, and all Cassel’s magic and cleverness might not be enough to save him. With no easy answers and no one he can trust, love might be the most dangerous gamble of all.

Dev1at3 by Jay kristoff

Lemon Fresh has seen better days.

After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon’s abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon in the war between BioMaas Incorporated and Daedelus Technologies. Instead, Lemon finds herself falling in with a group of fellow deviates—a band of teenagers with astonishing abilities, led by an enigmatic figure known as the Major, who may hold the secrets to Lemon’s past.

Meanwhile, Cricket finds himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana.

And inside Babel, a remade Eve hatches a plan to bring an end to the world.

Injustice 2 tome 3

Dépassé par un conflit opposant Batman et Ra’s al Ghul de plus en plus intense, Damian Wayne demande à Black Adam de l’aider à libérer Wonder Woman de sa prison themyscirienne. Mais au cours de ce sauvetage, ils ne s’attendaient pas se faire une alliée supplémentaire : Kara Zor-El, la cousine de Superman. La jeune femme maîtrise encore à peine toute l’étendue de ses pouvoirs, mais elle est probablement la seule à pouvoir changer le destin de la Terre.

 

 

Injustice 2 tome 4

Batman se met en quête de nouveaux alliés dans un lieu inattendu – la zone Fantôme – et ce qu’il y trouvera pourrait changer le cours de son combat contre Ra’s Al Ghul ! Suivi par Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Plastic Man, Green Arrow et Black Canary, le Chevalier Noir se dirige vers la Forteresse de Solitude, abandonnée par Superman, dans l’espoir d’y sauver les Teen Titans. Mais cette mission difficile, avec des pertes inattendues, nécessitera l’aide conjointe d’un héros proche de la mort et d’un autre disparu depuis longtemps !

 

 

Injustice 2 tome 5

Condamné sur une planète-prison par les Gardiens d’Oa, Hal Jordan finit par accepter sa part de responsabilité dans le régime du tyran Superman. Alors qu’il est hanté par des visions du passé et malmené par sa gardienne, Soranik, l’ancien Green Lantern se voit assigné son éternel ennemi ― Sinestro ―comme compagnon de cellule. Mais la prison est la cible d’Atrocitus et de son redouté corps des Red Lantern… Après INJUSTICE (200 000 exemplaires vendus) et sa suite INJUSTICE GROUND ZERO (complète en 2 tomes), la série se poursuit aujourd’hui avec INJUSTICE 2, directement inspirée du jeu vidéo du même nom sorti en mai 2017. Tom TAYLOR (EARTH-2) est de retour au scénario pour nous tenir en haleine quant au sort réservé au tyran Superman, accompagné au dessin de Bruno REDONDO et Daniel SAMPERE.
