Hallihallo, Ihr Lieben,
Ich habe nochmal ein paar Übersetzungen für euch gesammelt. 🙂
Ivory and Bone von Julie Eshbaugh scheint in einer Welt der Eiszeit zu spielen. Menschen leben in Clans und das Überleben ist keine leichte Aufgabe. Klingt sehr interessant und hört sich nach einer neuen Idee an.
Twelve Kings ist wieder ein ganz anderes Seting: Wüste. Wer mich kennt, weiß, dass dies eines meiner liebsten Setings ist (mal abgesehen vom Weltraum. 😉 Allerdings scheint Twelve Kings High Fantasy zu sein und ich bin noch nicht ganz sicher, was für eine Geschichte sich dahinter verbirgt, zu dem Tina von reading tidbits, das Buch nicht überragend bewertet hat. Ich halte es einfach mal im Auge.
Julia vanishes ist ein Thriller gemixt mit etwas Magie. Hört sich ganz gut an und macht mich auf jeden Fall neugierig. Werde es ebenfalls im Auge behalten.
Und als letztes Demon Road, das neueste Werk vom Skulduggery Pleasant Autor Derek Landy. Der Loewe Verlag hat sich den Titel gesichert. Ich muss ja jetzt beichten: Ich hab noch nicht ein Buch von ihm gelesen. ABER der erste Band von Skulduggery Pleasant liegt zumindest schon auf dem SUB bereit.
|The only life seventeen-year-old Kol knows is hunting at the foot of the Great Ice with his brothers. But food is becoming scarce, and without another clan to align with, Kol, his family, and their entire group are facing an uncertain future.
Traveling from the south, Mya and her family arrive at Kol’s camp with a trail of hurt and loss behind them, and hope for a new beginning. When Kol meets Mya, her strength, independence, and beauty instantly captivate him, igniting a desire for much more than survival.
Then on a hunt, Kol makes a grave mistake that jeopardizes the relationship that he and Mya have only just started to build. Mya was guarded to begin with—and for good reason—but no apology or gesture is enough for her to forgive him. Soon after, another clan arrives on their shores. And when Mya spots Lo, a daughter of this new clan, her anger intensifies, adding to the already simmering tension between families. After befriending Lo, Kol learns of a dark history between Lo and Mya that is rooted in the tangle of their pasts.
When violence erupts, Kol is forced to choose between fighting alongside Mya or trusting Lo’s claims. And when things quickly turn deadly, it becomes clear that this was a war that one of them had been planning all along. Quelle
|Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings—cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal. With their army of Silver Spears, their elite company of Blade Maidens, and their holy defenders, the terrifying asirim, the Kings uphold their positions as undisputed, invincible lords of the desert. There is no hope of freedom for any under their rule.
Or so it seems, until Çeda, a brave young woman from the west end slums, defies the Kings’ laws by going outside on the holy night of Beht Zha’ir. What she learns that night sets her on a path that winds through both the terrible truths of the Kings’ mysterious history and the hidden riddles of her own heritage. Together, these secrets could finally break the iron grip of the Kings’ power…if the nigh-omnipotent Kings don’t find her first. Quelle
|Julia has the unusual ability to be…unseen. Not invisible, exactly. Just beyond most people’s senses.
It’s a dangerous trait in a city that has banned all forms of magic and drowns witches in public Cleansings. But it’s a useful trait for a thief and a spy. And Julia has learned—crime pays.
Her latest job is paying very well indeed. Julia is posing as a housemaid in the grand house of Mrs. Och, where an odd assortment of characters live and work: A disgraced professor who sends her to fetch parcels containing bullets, spiders, and poison. An aristocratic houseguest who is locked in the basement each night. And a mysterious young woman who is clearly in hiding—though from what or whom?
Worse, Julia suspects that there’s a connection between these people and the killer leaving a trail of bodies across the frozen city.
The more she learns, the more she wants to be done with this unnatural job. To go back to the safety of her friends and fellow thieves. But Julia is entangled in a struggle between forces more powerful than she’d ever imagined. Escape will come at a terrible price.Quelle
|Full of Landy’s trademark wit, action and razor sharp dialogue, DEMON ROAD kicks off with a shocking opener and never lets up the pace in an epic road-trip across the supernatural landscape of America. Killer cars, vampires, undead serial killers: they’re all here. And the demons? Well, that’s where Amber comes in…Sixteen years old, smart and spirited, she’s just a normal American teenager until the lies are torn away and the demons reveal themselves.
Forced to go on the run, she hurtles from one threat to another, revealing a tapestry of terror woven into the very fabric of her life. Her only chance rests with her fellow travellers, who are not at all what they appear to be…Quelle
