Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson
Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there.
What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them.
Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl’s unexpectedly-epic coming of age.
Le dernier Voeu de Andrzej Sapkowski
Geralt de Riv est un personnage étrange, une bizarrerie de la nature, un mutant qui, grâce à la magie et à un long entraînement, mais aussi grâce à un mystérieux élixir, est devenu un meurtrier parfait. Ses cheveux blancs, ses yeux nyctalopes et son manteau noir effrayent et fascinent. Il parcourt des contrées pittoresques en gagnant sa vie comme chasseur de monstres. En ces temps obscurs, ogres, goules et vampires pullulent, et les magiciens sont des manipulateurs experts. Contre ces menaces, il faut un tueur à gages à la hauteur. Car Geralt est plus qu un guerrier ou un mage.C est un Sorceleur. Il est unique. Au cours de ses aventures, il rencontrera une autoritaire mais généreuse prêtresse, un troubadour paillard au grand cœur, et une magicienne capricieuse aux charmes vénéneux. Amis d’un jour, amours d’une nuit. Mais au bout de sa quête, peut-être pourra-t-il prononcer son dernier vœu : retrouver son humanité perdue…
Persuasion de Jane washington & Jaymin eve
Willa Knight : Rurale ? Teigneuse ? Célèbre animal de compagnie de cinq êtres magiques ?
Il existe des règles au Bois des Élus, et quelqu’un tente de lui apprendre à les suivre. Mais Willa pose problème. Ce qui n’est pas nouveau en soi, étant donné qu’elle pose problème depuis sa naissance – ce que ne contredira pas sa pseudo-sœur Emma.
Donc jusqu’ici, rien de nouveau… sauf que…
Certaines choses, qui ne s’étaient jamais produites auparavant, commencent à se produire.
Et la situation commence à devenir… chaotique.
Seduction by Jaymin Eve & Jane Washington
Willa Knight: Dweller? Sol? Accidental evolutionary hiccup?
Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshipping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules—but none of that matters anymore.
The rules are changing.
The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans.
Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out—until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos. With the Abcurses gone, she’ll have to rely on her wits, and her sister Emmy, to stay under the radar and survive.
Because someone wants her dead.
But, really, what else is new?
Inifinity Son by Adam Silvera
Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.
Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.
Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.
Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.
Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed
Les Intrus de Claire McFall
Tristan et Dylan ont réchappé de l’au-delà, mais ils n’ont pas le droit de vivre. Dylan aurait dû mourir dans un terrible accident de train. Tristan est un Passeur d’ombres, un être immortel.
Mais lorsqu’ils ont brisé la frontière entre le monde des vivants et celui des morts, ils ont défié les lois de la nature, et prouvé à d’autres créatures, sombres et maléfiques, que passer d’un univers à l’autre était possible… Pourront-ils faire face aux conséquences de leurs actes ?
The Seventh Sun by Lani Forbes
The sun of the Chicome people has been destroyed six times. First by water, then by storm, fire, famine, sickness, and beasts. After each apocalypse, the creator goddess allowed one of her divine children to sacrifice themselves to save civilization. The gods paid their blood as the price for the lives of the people, and the people owed them blood in return.
Mayana is a noble descendant of the water goddess and can control water whenever her blood is spilled. She has always despised the brutal rituals of her people — especially sacrifices. She can’t even make it through a routine animal sacrifice without embarrassing her family. Prince Ahkin has always known he would be emperor, but he didn’t expect his father to die so suddenly. Now he must raise the sun in the sky each day and read the signs in the stars. But the stars now hint at impending chaos and the sun has begun setting earlier each evening. Ahkin fears he might not be strong enough to save his people from another apocalypse. And to add to his list of worries, he can’t truly become emperor until he selects a wife.
Mayana and six other noble daughters are sent to the palace to compete for Ahkin’s hand. She must prove she is a true daughter of water and face the others who have their own magical gifts from wielding the elements to the control of animals, plants and healing. And in a society centered on rigid rituals, Mayana must conceal her traitorous beliefs because if she doesn’t make Ahkin love her, she will become a ceremonial sacrifice to bless his marriage. But darker forces are at play and it won’t matter if Mayana loses if the world ends first…
Rich in imagination and romance, and based on the legends and history of the Aztec and Mayan people, The Seventh Sun brings to vivid life a world on the edge of apocalyptic disaster.
