Supergirl, Being Super by mariko Tamaki

À seize ans – du moins, c’est à peu près l’âge qu’elle pense avoir -, Kara aimerait être aussi insouciante et pleine d’assurance que Jennifer et Dolly, ses deux meilleures amies. Les deux jeunes femmes savent ce qu’elles veulent et ce qu’elles sont, contrairement à Kara, qui semble pourtant tout avoir pour être heureuse, notamment des parents adoptifs aimants qui n’ont jamais craints sa différence. Pourtant, les huit premières années de sa vie restent une énigme qui ne cesse de hanter ses nuits, et la perte de ses pouvoirs au moment où elle en avait le plus besoin ne fera qu’accentuer son mal être et sa profonde remise en question. Le chemin vers la vérité est encore long.

 

Wonder Woman Legendary de Renae De Liz

Née du désir profond de la reine Hippolyte d’avoir un enfant, Diana vit ses premières années entre quatre murs, elle que l’effronterie et l’inépuisable curiosité poussent pourtant sans cesse vers le monde extérieur. Les obligations liées à son rang et la destinée que les amazones semblent déjà avoir tracée pour elle ne lui conviennent pas.

Elle en est convaincue, son avenir est ailleurs, et sa rencontre avec le pilote Steve Trevor ne fera que confirmer son ressenti. Car même le coeur de la légendaire Wonder Woman n’échappe pas à l’adage : il a ses raisons que la raison ignore, et il est prêt à la mener jusqu’au bout du monde !

A Kingdom Of Flesh And Fire by Jennifer L Armentrout

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice…

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.

Crowning Soul by Sahira Javaid

Be swept away in this unique fantasy debut from Sahira Javaid. A spellbinding adventure of belonging, finding hope and where the price of a soul is another soul’s fate. Perfect for fans of InuYashaChildren of Blood and Bone and The Candle and The Flame.

Nezha Zaman considers her gift to control fire a dangerous secret. A secret that unravels when she encounters a vengeful shadow jinni in a maze garden that has been stalking her family, and knows about her power. Weeks after seeing the demonic being, Nezha is torn from her world through her backyard pond and transported to another dimension which sought out the light inside her heart.

Nezha learns from two unicorns that the dimension is her family’s roots, and the light is a fragment of an angel’s shattered soul. The three must work together to find the soul’s shards in a land teeming with shape-shifting jinn. If Nezha fails to stop the corrupted Iron Prince, the malevolent jinn at his side will shatter her soul next.

Legendborn by Tracy Deonn

Filled with mystery and an intriguingly rich magic system, Tracy Deonn’s YA contemporary fantasy Legendborn offers the dark allure of City of Bones with a modern-day twist on a classic legend and a lot of Southern Black Girl Magic.

After her mother dies in an accident, sixteen-year-old Bree Matthews wants nothing to do with her family memories or childhood home. A residential program for bright high schoolers at UNC–Chapel Hill seems like the perfect escape—until Bree witnesses a magical attack her very first night on campus.

A flying demon feeding on human energies.

A secret society of so called “Legendborn” students that hunt the creatures down.

And a mysterious teenage mage who calls himself a “Merlin” and who attempts—and fails—to wipe Bree’s memory of everything she saw.

The mage’s failure unlocks Bree’s own unique magic and a buried memory with a hidden connection: the night her mother died, another Merlin was at the hospital. Now that Bree knows there’s more to her mother’s death than what’s on the police report, she’ll do whatever it takes to find out the truth, even if that means infiltrating the Legendborn as one of their initiates.

She recruits Nick, a self-exiled Legendborn with his own grudge against the group, and their reluctant partnership pulls them deeper into the society’s secrets—and closer to each other. But when the Legendborn reveal themselves as the descendants of King Arthur’s knights and explain that a magical war is coming, Bree has to decide how far she’ll go for the truth and whether she should use her magic to take the society down—or join the fight.

Cole by Diana Nixon

My name is Madison Hall and I am the most popular marriage broker in New York. I know everything about the most wanted bachelors and I will sell their every dark secret to help you make one of them yours forever.
But this story isn’t about me.
It’s about two people who never wanted to get in a serious relationship, not to mention with each other.
The morning Cole Griffin finds a beautiful stranger in his bedroom, his far-from-fun-and-anything-romantic life turns into disaster.
And so does Harlee’s.
Who would have thought that renting a house would end up with a non-stop fight with its owner?
Every new day will become a challenge to live through. But Cole and Harlee never give up easily. If they start a fire, they will burn down everything in their way to get what they both desire.
Which in this particular case, might also become the desire to burn the sheets together…

A romantic comedy that will make you laugh hard, and swoon a lot.

Kit can lead her ship and clever crew on her own, but with the fate of queen and country at stake, Kit and Rian must learn to trust each other, or else the Isles will fall…

But after Jake Evans walks into her life, following these two simple rules gets a lot more complicated.

Jake is the boy from Lovette’s childhood who grew up. Handsome and sweet, he unlocks the part of Lovette that wants nothing more than to surf the waves again. And as their relationship grows, she begins to question what it means to be faithful: to her family, to God, but mostly, to herself.
