Six of Crows de Leigh Bardugo
Les bas-fonds de Ketterdam s’organise en gangs rivaux. L’homme le plus ambitieux et le plus jeune de la pègre est Kaz Brekker. Aussi brillant que mystérieux, aussi charismatique que dangereux, et surtout, connu pour être un voleur hors pair. Prêt à tout pour de l’argent, il accepte la mission du riche marchand Van Eck : délivrer un savant du palais de Glace, réputé imprenable. Ce prisonnier est l’inventeur du jurda parem, une drogue multipliant sans limite les pouvoirs surnaturels de la caste des magiciens : les Grishas.
Une drogue, qui, tombée dans les mauvaises mains, risque d’engendrer un chaos irréversible.
La cité corrompue de Leigh Bardugo
Après avoir réussi à s’enfuir du Palais des Glaces, Kaz et ses compagnons se sentent invulnérables. Un revirement de situation va cependant changer la donne d’une partie mortelle que devront jouer les jeunes prodiges du crime. Alors que les grandes puissances Grisha s’organisent pour leur mettre la main dessus, Kaz imagine un plan, entre vengeance et arnaque, qui leur assurera la gloire éternelle en cas de réussite, et provoquera la ruine de leur monde s’ils échouent.
Unforgiven by Diana Nixon
A NEW BREATHTAKING STORY FROM THE USA TODAY & INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR DIANA NIXON.
Santiago Alcantar killed my parents.
Now it’s my turn to take away what he loves most of all…
Losing my parents changed my life forever. I had to learn how to be a fighter. I fought for everything I wanted to have. But when I thought there was nothing I couldn’t get, I met her… Gabriela Alcantar. The favorite daughter of my worst enemy.
She made the sorrows of my past return.
I felt weak and helpless again.
I hated it.
As well as I hated her and her entire family.
Because they were the killers. And they could never be forgiven.
Unless… I could make them pay for what they did to me.
“I lied to her… I told her I would never fall in love with her. Then again, I lied to myself. Because my heart already belonged to her…”
This is an adult standalone enemies-to-lovers romance, filled with mystery, suspense, family drama, forbidden love, slow-burn heat, and HEA.
A PERFECT NEXT READ for the fans of Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, Anna Todd, Ivy Smoak & Tarryn Fisher.
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.
Chase the Dark by Annette Marie
Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way.
The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to annoy the crap out of her, but he isn’t as harmless as he seems. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?
The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.
And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.
Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.
This is my America by Kim Johnson
Dear Martin meets Just Mercy in this unflinching yet uplifting YA novel that explores the racist injustices in the American justice system.
Every week, seventeen-year-old Tracy Beaumont writes letters to Innocence X, asking the organization to help her father, an innocent Black man on death row. After seven years, Tracy is running out of time—her dad has only 267 days left. Then the unthinkable happens. The police arrive in the night, and Tracy’s older brother, Jamal, goes from being a bright, promising track star to a “thug” on the run, accused of killing a white girl. Determined to save her brother, Tracy investigates what really happened between Jamal and Angela down at the Pike. But will Tracy and her family survive the uncovering of the skeletons of their Texas town’s racist history that still haunt the present?
