Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard
A strange darkness grows in Allward.
Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea.
She soon discovers the truth: She is the last of an ancient lineage—and the last hope to save the world from destruction. But she won’t be alone. Even as darkness falls, she is joined by a band of unlikely companions:
A squire, forced to choose between home and honor.
An immortal, avenging a broken promise.
An assassin, exiled and bloodthirsty.
An ancient sorceress, whose riddles hide an eerie foresight.
A forger with a secret past.
A bounty hunter with a score to settle.
Together they stand against a vicious opponent, invincible and determined to burn all kingdoms to ash, and an army unlike anything the realm has ever witnessed.
The Words in my hand by Asphyxia
Part coming of age, part call to action, this fast-paced #ownvoices novel about a Deaf teenager is a unique and inspiring exploration of what it means to belong.
Set in an ominously prescient near future, All the Words that Matter is the story of Piper: sixteen, smart, artistic, and rebellious, she’s struggling to conform to what her mom wants—for her to be ‘normal,’ to pass as hearing, and get a good job. But in a time of food scarcity, environmental collapse, and political corruption, Piper has other things on her mind—like survival.
Deaf since the age of three, Piper has always been told that she needs to compensate in a world that puts those who can hear above everyone else. But when she meets Marley, a whole new world opens up—one where Deafness is something to celebrate rather than hide, and where resilience and hope are created by taking action, building a community, and believing in something better.
Published to rave reviews as Future Girl in Australia (Allen & Unwin, Sept. 2020), this unforgettable story is told through a visual extravaganza of text, paint, collage, and drawings that bring Piper’s journey vividly to life. Insightful, hopeful, and empowering, All the Words that Matter is very much a novel for our turbulent times.
Not your average hot guy by Gwenda Bond
A paranormal romantic comedy at the (possible) end of the world.
All Callie wanted was a quiet weekend with her best friend. She promised her mom she could handle running her family’s escape room business while her mom is out of town. Instead a Satanic cult shows up, claiming that the prop spell book in one of the rooms is the real deal, and they need it to summon the right hand of the devil. Naturally they take Callie and her friend, Mag, along with them. But when the summoning reveals a handsome demon in a leather jacket named Luke who offers to help Callie stop the cult from destroying the world, her night goes from weird to completely strange.
As the group tries to stay one step ahead of the cult, Callie finds herself drawn to the annoying (and annoyingly handsome) Luke. But what Callie doesn’t know is that Luke is none other than Luke Morningstar, Prince of Hell and son of the Devil himself. Callie never had time for love, and with the apocalypse coming closer, is there room for romance when all hell’s about to break loose?
From New York Times bestselling author Gwenda Bond, Not Your Average Hot Guy is a hilarious romantic comedy about two people falling in love, while the fate of the world rests on their shoulders.
La duperie de Gunièvre de Kristen White
La princesse Guenièvre arrive à Camelot pour épouser le charismatique Roi Arthur, mais elle n’est pas celle qu’elle prétend être. Son vrai nom et sa véritable identité sont un secret.
La magie a été interdite dans le royaume et le sorcier Merlin qui en a été banni a trouvé un moyen de protéger le roi : faire de Guenièvre sa femme… et sa protectrice contre ceux qui veulent voir la ville du jeune souverain tomber.
Pour sauver la vie d’Arthur, sa nouvelle épouse va devoir naviguer dans une cour où les anciennes valeurs qui s’opposent au changement côtoient de nouvelles voix qui se battent pour un monde meilleur.
Mais au cœur de la forêt et dans les sombres profondeurs des lacs, la plus terrible des menaces attend pour récupérer ce qui lui est dû… Les chevaliers d’Arthur croient qu’ils sont assez forts pour faire face à n’importe quel danger, mais Guenièvre sait qu’il faudra bien plus que des épées pour garder Camelot libre.
Des joutes meurtrières aux trahisons et aux romances interdites, La duperie de Guenièvre propose une lecture inédite et fascinante de la plus grande des légendes. Le combat entre la magie et le fer, le bien et le mal. Une œuvre forte, novatrice et indispensable.
