Vestac Vetra by Suzan Denard


Kada mu eksplozija uništi brod, svi veruju da je princ Merik, veštac vetra, mrtav.

Povređen, ali ipak živ, Merik je odlučan da dokaže sestrinu izdaju. Stigavši u prestonicu svog kraljevstva, koja je preplavljena izbeglicama, on luta ulicama i bori se za siromašne – zbog čega se gradom pronosi glas o izobličenom polubogu, Gnevu, koji privodi pravdi one koji su zgrešili.

Kada krv – veštac Edun otkrije da je Izeldina glava ucenjena, on se trudi da bude prvi koji će je pronaći, a ipak, nakon iznenađujućeg obrta, Izelda mu nudi dogovor. Ona će mu vratiti novac koji mu je ukraden, ako on pronađe Safi.

Sada moraju da sarađuju, dok putuju kroz Veštičje zemlje, neprestano se pitajući ko će koga prvi izdati.

Posle iznenadnog napada i brodoloma, Safi i carica Marstoka jedva uspevaju da izvuku žive glave. Svaki trenutak koji same provode u gusarskim zemljama predstavlja hod po oštrici noža – posebno kada svaki sledeći potez gusara može dovesti do rata u Veštičjim zemljama.

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

The year is 1926, and Shanghai hums to the tune of debauchery.

A blood feud between two gangs runs the streets red, leaving the city helpless in the grip of chaos. At the heart of it all is eighteen-year-old Juliette Cai, a former flapper who has returned to assume her role as the proud heir of the Scarlet Gang—a network of criminals far above the law. Their only rivals in power are the White Flowers, who have fought the Scarlets for generations. And behind every move is their heir, Roma Montagov, Juliette’s first love…and first betrayal.

But when gangsters on both sides show signs of instability culminating in clawing their own throats out, the people start to whisper. Of a contagion, a madness. Of a monster in the shadows. As the deaths stack up, Juliette and Roma must set their guns—and grudges—aside and work together, for if they can’t stop this mayhem, then there will be no city left for either to rule.

Perfect for fans of The Last Magician and Descendant of the Crane, this heart-stopping debut is an imaginative Romeo and Juliet retelling set in 1920s Shanghai, with rival gangs and a monster in the depths of the Huangpu River.


Trois mages et une margarita de Annette Marie

Quand le bar où elle a postulé se trouve être une guilde remplie de mages arrogants, Tori comprend que sa vie a pris un tournant inattendu.

Fauchée, presque à la rue et depuis peu sans emploi : voilà les raisons pour lesquelles j’ai répondu à une annonce pour un job de serveuse dans un bar minable.

Ça a commencé à partir en cacahuète quand on m’a demandé de faire un essai ce soir-là, plutôt qu’un entretien. Un test grandeur nature, histoire de voir si j’allais bien m’entendre avec leur clientèle « spéciale ».

Une réussite, vraiment.
Leurs clients étaient de gros cons, et je ne me suis pas laissé faire. C’est bien la définition de « s’intégrer », non ?

Je m’attendais à ce qu’on me montre la porte. Mais au lieu de ça… j’ai décroché le poste ?
Ce n’est qu’après que j’ai réalisé que cet endroit n’était pas un bar. C’est une guilde. Et les trois types arrogants que j’ai arrosés de margarita pendant mon essai ? Ce. Sont. Des. Mages !

Soit je suis exactement le genre de serveuse à la langue acérée dont cette guilde a besoin, soit il y a une bonne raison si personne d’autre ne veut travailler là. Et qu’est-ce que fait une fille fauchée dans une telle situation ?
Elle accepte le boulot, bien sûr. Et avec une augmentation, s’il vous plaît !

Note : les trois mages sont assurément sexy mais cette série n’est pas un Reverse Harem. C’est un concentré d’humour et de sarcasme dans un univers d’Urban Fantasy au rythme détonant. Et si Tori n’a aucun problème à se mettre dans la m***** à chaque fois, il s’agit d’une nouvelle aventure à chaque tome : pas de fin ouverte, pas de frustration, que du plaisir !

Dark Arts and a Daiquiri by Annette Marie

When I found myself facing down the scariest black-magic felon in the city, practically daring him to abduct me, I had to wonder exactly how I ended up here.

It all started when I accidentally landed a job as a bartender–but not at a bar. At a guild, populated by mages, sorcerers, alchemists, witches, and psychics. Good thing this lame-o human is adaptable, right?

Then my favorite guild members–three sexy, powerful, and intermittently charming mages–asked for my help. Did they want access to my encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails? Oh no. They wanted to wrap me up in a pretty ribbon and plunk me in the crosshairs of a murderous rogue to lure him out of hiding.

So that’s what we did. And that’s why I’m here. About to be kidnapped. Oh, and our grand plan for safely capturing said murderous rogue? Yeah, that completely fell apart about two minutes ago.

Why did I agree to this again?
