12 härligheter att hålla utkik efter!


Titel: After the Snow

Författare: S. D. Crockett

Fifteen-year-old Willo was out hunting when the trucks came and took his family away. Left alone in the snow, Willo becomes determined to find and rescue his family, and he knows just who to talk with to learn where they are. He plans to head across the mountains and make Farmer Geraint tell him where his family has gone. 

But on the way across the mountain, he finds Mary, a refugee from the city, whose father is lost and who is starving to death. The smart thing to do would be to leave her alone — he doesn’t have enough supplies for two or the time to take care of a girl — but Willo just can’t do it. However, with the world trapped in an ice age, the odds of them surviving on their own are not good. And even if he does manage to keep Mary safe, what about finding his family?

En överlevnadshistoria? Verkar vara en dystopi.

Titel: Forgiven
Serie: The Demon Trappers 3
Författare: Jana G. Oliver

The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of a certain hunky Fallen angel, and a freshly-made deal with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s Demon Hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s in hiding, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than Riley, and rapidly getting out of control:  something sinister is happening in Atlanta… or someone. The demons are working together for the first time ever and refusing to die, putting civilians in harm’s way. Riley thinks she might know who’s behind it all, but who’s going to believe her? Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming – and it may be closer than anyone thinks…

Inte riktigt ett nytt boksläpp eftersom UK-versionen släpptes den 1:a mars. Den här är US-versionen. Har inte vågat läsa beskrivningen för jag tänker läsa den här. Här har ni min recension av första boken.

En serie jag är nyfiken på.

Titel: Invisible Sun
Serie: Black Hole Sun 2
Författare: David Macinnis Gill

Obsessed with MUSE, the clandestine project that created the AI in his brain, mercenary chief Durango draws the ire of the government when he steals part of the secret project data and hightails it with his lieutenant, Vienne, to an ancient monastery. There, he meets the monks who raised Vienne from an orphan and also encounters soldiers working for his old nemesis, the crime lord Mr. Lyme. Lyme controls the territory surrounding the monastery, as well as the datacenters housing the rest of MUSE. 

Undeterred, Durango and Vienne pull off an ill-advised raid on Lyme’s complex. During the ensuing battle, however, Vienne is captured, and Durango is beaten and left for dead. Now, wounded and shaken, Durango must overcome bounty hunters, treacherous terrain, a full scale civil war, and a warrior monk with an eye for vengeance (not to mention his own guilt, self-doubt, and broken arm) to find Vienne and free her from Archibald, a brain-washing pyromaniac with a Napoleon complex who wants to rule Mars–and kill Durango in the process.

Hade jag bara sett omslaget så skulle jag aldrig ha gissat att det är en YA-bok. En till dystopi.

Titel: Life Is But a Dream
Författare: Brian James 

Sabrina, an artist, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents check her into the Wellness Center. There she meets Alec, who is convinced it’s the world that’s crazy, not the two of them. They are meant to be together; they are special. But when Alec starts to convince Sabrina that her treatment will wipe out everything that makes her creative, she worries that she’ll lose hold of her dreams and herself. Should she listen to her doctor? her decision may have fatal consequences.

Brian James calls Life is But a Dream “the most intense book I’ve written. Bringing this unique character to life and seeing the world through her eyes, with all its beauty and confusion, was an immense challenge that I hope is just as rewarding to read as it was to write.” Intense–yes. Unforgettable–definitely.

Ett av de snyggaste omslagen denna vecka. Har alltid varit fascinerad av schizofreni så den här låter mycket intressant!

Titel: Sisters of Glass by 
Författare: Stephanie Hemphill

Maria is the younger daughter of an esteemed family on the island of Murano, the traditional home for Venetian glassmakers. Though she longs to be a glassblower herself, glassblowing is not for daughters—that is her brother’s work. Maria has only one duty to perform for her family: before her father died, he insisted that she be married into the nobility, even though her older sister, Giovanna, should rightfully have that role. Not only is Giovanna older, she’s prettier, more graceful, and everyone loves her.

Maria would like nothing more than to allow her beautiful sister, who is far more able and willing to attract a noble husband, to take over this role for her. But they cannot circumvent their father’s wishes. And when a new young glassblower arrives to help the family business and Maria finds herself drawn to him, the web of conflicting emotions grows even more tangled.

Coolt omslag, verkar vara en historisk roman.

Titel: Spellcaster
Serie: Spellbound 2
Författare: Cara Lynn Shultz 

Finding your eternal soulmate – easy. 

Stopping a true-love-hungry evil – not so much… 

After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems. Although…it’s not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a sixteen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain-especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close…. 

But something dark and hungry is using Emma and Brendan’s deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma’s crash course in über-spells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.

Ännu en serie som jag är nyfiken på. Den här ska handla om häxor tror jag.

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Titel: The Dreamtrails
Serie: The Obernewtyn Chronicles 5-6
Författare:  Isobelle Carmody 

The adventure continues with acclaimed fantasy author Isobelle Carmody’s The Dreamtrails, an omnibus edition of books five and six in the dystopian fantasy the Obernewtyn Chronicles—Wavesong and The Stone Key!

Captured, Elspeth Gordie is drawn deep into the heart of her enemies. Once there, she meets unusual allies and uncovers a devastating plot brewing in their ranks. To stop them, she must risk everything to rescue a former ally whose mind and body have been manipulated to unleash a deadly plague upon the Land.

Inget nytt släpp heller. Vad jag vet så är den här är ett samlingsvolym för delarna 4-5 i en fantasyserie som gavs ut för ett par år sedan.

Titel: The Key of Living Fire
Författare: Scott Appleton

Long, long ago a prophet of God shed his powers he had received from his Creator, and placed them in a hold of fire. He chose to leave his preeminent life and become a simple man living on a mountainside. But someone else discovered where he had placed the key to the hold of fire and set about finding it. Letrias, that strongest of the traitors who remained alive, sent his minion to seize the key. But the dragon prophet discoverd Letrias’ plan. Intercepting Ilfredo, the dragon sent him to stop the thief and to retrieve the key.

Ilfredo journeyed beneath the Resgerian desert, discovered the complexity of its mystery along the way, and at last entered the Hidden Realm. But a great evil slept there alongside the key, an evil that even the mighty Ilfredo could not defeat. When it awakened, an army wakened with it, and the hero found himself impossibly outmatched. Only an ancient hero with strength and honor in his heart, had the courage to join with Ilfredo and preserve his life. Yet only a greater villain could destroy the evil that had been unleashed.

Låter som en klassisk, episk fantasysaga med drakar.

Titel: The Stalker Chronicles
Författare: Carley Moore

Sophomore Cammie Bliss has long been labeled a stalker by her peers, but when a cute new boy named Toby arrives at her small town high school, Cammie has a chance to be “normal.” Trouble is, she can’t really help herself and she’s up to her old tricks of “intense observation and following” pretty quick. Making things worse, her younger brother is dating one of the most popular girls in the school, her parents have separated, and her dad has begun to watch their house most nights. Cammie has simply got to figure out why she behaves the way she does, and end it once and for all.

Haha, tycker att den här verkar hur härlig som helst 🙂

Titel: Above
Författare: Leah Bobet

Matthew has always lived in Safe, a community hidden far beneath the pipes and tunnels of the city Above. The residents fled to Safe years before to escape the Whitecoats and their cruel experiments, and now Matthew is responsible for both the keeping of Safe’s stories and for Ariel—a golden-haired shapeshifter, and the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.

But one horrifying night, an old enemy murders Safe’s founder, Atticus, and the community is taken over by an army of shadows. Only Matthew, Ariel, and a handful of friends escape Above. Now they not only have to survive in a sunlit world they barely know, but they must unravel the mystery of the shadows’ fury and Atticus’s death. It’s up to Matthew to find a way to remake Safe—not just for himself and his family, but for Ariel, who’s again faced with the life she fled, and who needs him more than ever before.

Den här har jag spanat på länge! Måste läsas! Omslaget är så fint!

————————————————————————————————————————————–

Mest lockande denna vecka är utan tvekan Life Is But a Dream och Above! Båda har grymt snygga omslag och handlingen låter mycket intressant. Tredje delen i The Demon Trappers kommer jag förmodligen att läsa när jag har läst ut den andra delen som ligger i bokhyllan.

Vilken bok tycker ni verkar vara mest intressant?
