[Übersetzungen] The glittering court, sword and verse, shadowsharper, stealing snow, the secret horses of briar hill

Hallo, Ihr Lieben,

Heute mache ich weiter mit meiner Sammlung von Übersetzungsnews.

The glittering Court ist das neue Buch von Vampire Academy-Autorin Richelle Mead. Im Gegensatz zu vielen Anderen konnte ich mit den Büchern rund um die Vampirprinzessin Lissa und ihre Beschützerin Rose nicht viel anfangen, bis zum zweiten Band bin ich gekommen, dann war für mich die Luft raus, schade! Aber vielleicht kann mich the glittering court überzeugen, ich werde Frau Mead eine zweite Chance geben, wenn der Bastei Lübbe Verlag das Werk veröffentlicht.

Shadowshaper von Daniel Jose Older überzeugt mich schon mit Klappentext und Cover. Malerei, Magie, Karibikflair und Geister? Eine Mischung, die mir so noch nicht begegnet ist.

Auch Kathy MacMillan ist zumindest im Young Adult Bereich mit Sword and Verse ein neuer Stern am Fantasyhimmel, die Inhaltsangabe von Sword and Verse klingt aber leider nicht so, als ob hier das Rad neu erfunden wurde. Sie weist die üblichen Handlungsstränge auf wie „Volk wird von Herrschenden unterdrückt“ und „Mädchen sprich Hauptprotagonistin ist zufällig die einzige, die was dagegen tun kann und schließt sich einer Rebellengruppe an.“ Aber wer weiß, vielleicht steckt in Sword and Verse doch mehr neues als es äußerlich gerade den Anschein hat. Ich lasse mich von der deutschen Übersetzung dann gerne vom Gegenteil überzeugen.

Stealing Snow ist der Beginn einer zweiten Reihe von Danielle Paige. Still und heimlich habe ich immer auf die Übersetzung ihrer ersten Reihe „Dorothy must die“ gehofft. Aber vielleicht kommt das noch, sollte Stealing Snow gut verkauft werden, auf dem deutschen Markt. Ein bisschen ungewöhnlich ist, dass der deutsche Verlag der Thienemann Verlag ist, aber ich finde es toll, dass hier mal wieder mehr Titel erscheinen, die mich interessieren und der Verlag auch den amerikanischen Buchmarkt mehr mit einbezieht.

Und als letztes habe ich hier noch The Secret Horses of Briar Hill von Megan Shepherd, deren andere Reihe, The Cage, bald im Heyne fliegt Verlag auf deutsch erscheint. Ob Heyne fliegt auch für the scret horses … die Rechte besitzt, konnte ich leider nicht herausfinden, nur dass es auf deutsch erscheinen wird. Hoffentlich mit diesem phänomenalen Cover! 🙂

Konnte ich euch ein bisschen neugierig auf zukünftige Neuerscheinungen machen? Ich hoffe es. Einen schönen Abend euch!

Big and sweeping, spanning from the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.

Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training, and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.

When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and then when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.

But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands… Quelle

Cassandra Clare meets Caribbean legend in SHADOWSHAPER, an action-packed urban fantasy from a bold new talent.

Sierra Santiago was looking forward to a fun summer of making art, hanging out with her friends, and skating around Brooklyn. But then a weird zombie guy crashes the first party of the season. Sierra’s near-comatose abuelo begins to say „No importa“ over and over. And when the graffiti murals in Bed-Stuy start to weep…. Well, something stranger than the usual New York mayhem is going on.

Sierra soon discovers a supernatural order called the Shadowshapers, who connect with spirits via paintings, music, and stories. Her grandfather once shared the order’s secrets with an anthropologist, Dr. Jonathan Wick, who turned the Caribbean magic to his own foul ends. Now Wick wants to become the ultimate Shadowshaper by killing all the others, one by one. With the help of her friends and the hot graffiti artist Robbie, Sierra must dodge Wick’s supernatural creations, harness her own Shadowshaping abilities, and save her family’s past, present, and future.

Raisa was only a child when she was kidnapped and enslaved in Qilara. Forced to serve in the palace of the King, she’s endured hunger, abuse, and the harrowing fear of discovery. Everyone knows that Raisa is Arnath, but not that she is a Learned One, a part of an Arnath group educated in higher order symbols. In Qilara, this language is so fiercely protected that only the King, the Prince, and Tutors are allowed to know it. So when the current Tutor-in-training is executed for sharing the guarded language with slaves and Raisa is chosen to replace her, Raisa knows that, although she may have a privileged position among slaves, any slipup could mean death.

That would be challenging enough, but training alongside Prince Mati could be her real undoing. And when a romance blossoms between them, she’s suddenly filled with a dangerous hope for something she never before thought possible: more. Then she’s approached by the Resistance—an underground army of slaves—to help liberate the Arnath people. Joining the Resistance could mean freeing her people…but she’d also be aiding in the war against her beloved, an honorable man she knows wants to help the slaves.

Working against the one she loves—and a palace full of deadly political renegades—has some heady consequences. As Raisa struggles with what’s right, she unwittingly uncovers a secret that the Qilarites have long since buried…one that, unlocked, could bring the current world order to its knees.

And Raisa is the one holding the key. Quelle

Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.

Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.

This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero. Quelle

There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. In the mirrors that line its grand hallways, which once belonged to a princess. In those that reflect the elegant rooms, now filled with sick children. It is her secret.

One morning, when Emmaline climbs over the wall of the hospital’s abandoned gardens, she discovers something incredible: a white horse with broken wings has left the mirror-world and entered her own.

Tucked into the garden’s once-gleaming sundial, Emmaline finds a letter from the Horse Lord. He is hiding the wounded white horse, named Foxfire, from a dark and sinister force—a Black Horse who hunts by colorless moonlight. If Emmaline is to keep the Black Horse from finding her new friend, she must collect colorful objects with which to blind him. But where can Emmaline find color when her world is filled with gray?
