Wish List #1: Sjælehenteren

Raven er smuk, rig og populær. Hun har hele livet foran sig – indtil hun bliver dræbt på vej til sit livs fest. Men livet slutter ikke altid ved den sidste vejrtrækning. Raven vågner op til et møde med selveste Døden, som tilbyder hende et evigt job som sjælehenter.

Det viser sig, at ikke alt er som det skal være i efterlivet. De ellers udødelige sjælehentere forsvinder én for én, og ældgamle kræfter truer med at tage livet af både Raven og alle omkring hende. For at forhindre Dommedag må Raven alliere sig med både Himlen og Helvede i et forsøg på at nedkæmpe fjenden. Men når krigen truer, og mørket indtager verden, hvem er så i virkeligheden sande venner og fjender? Kan Raven stole på den lyse side, eller går vejen til frelse gennem mørket?

For lidt tid siden offentliggjorde Katja Berger coveret til hendes kommende roman, Sjælehenteren. Wow! Det er simpelthen så smukt! Den står til at udkomme til september gennem forlaget Dreamlitt. Jeg glæder mig ubeskriveligt meget til at få fingrene i denne bog. Den lyder simpelthen så spændende. Jeg har allerede læst en lille smule af den, og jeg elskede det!

Bookish Wish #4

starflight

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world–and each other–the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…

Melissa Landers har også skrevet Alienated serien, hvor jeg kun har læst den første, men den kunne jeg virkelig godt lide. Denne lyder også ret spændende, jeg er dog ikke helt sikker på hvad jeg synes om coveret dog. Jeg synes det er ret pænt men også lidt kedeligt. Jeg kan ikke finde ud af det. Uanset hvad, så glæder jeg mig til at læse bogen!

Bookish Wish #3

ItemImage.aspxSerafina, Neela, Ling, Ava, Becca, and Astrid, six mermaids from realms scattered throughout the seas and freshwaters, were summoned by the leader of the river witches to learn an incredible truth: the mermaids are direct descendants of the Six Who Ruled-powerful mages who once governed the lost empire of Atlantis. The ancient evil that destroyed Atlantis is stirring again, and only the mermaids can defeat it. To do so, they need to find magical talismans that belonged to the Six.

Serafina believes her talisman was buried with an old shipwreck. While researching its location, she is almost discovered by a death rider patrol led by someone familiar. . . . The pain of seeing him turned traitor is devastating.

Neela travels to Matali to warn her parents of the grave threat facing their world. But they find her story outlandish; a sign that she needs to be confined to her chamber for rest and recovery. She escapes and travels to Kandina, where her talisman is in the possession of fearsome razormouth dragons.

As they hunt for their talismans, both Serafina and Neela find reserves of courage and cunning they didn’t know they possessed. They face down danger and death, only to endure a game-changing betrayal, as shocking as a rogue wave.”

Den første bog var lidt langsom i starten, men jeg glæder mig alligevel til at læse videre, og så er jeg simpelthen vild med dette cover!

Bookish wish #2

23215489“Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon’s heart. Now the time has come for Princess Eadlyn to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn doesn’t expect her Selection to be anything like her parents’ fairy-tale love story. But as the competition begins, she may discover that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she always thought.”

Jeg har læst de tre første bind i serien, og jeg elsker virkelig denne serie. Og coverne er bare så smukke! Jeg ved ikke helt hvad jeg synes om bagside teksten til denne bog, men jeg skal helt klart eje den og læse den snart. Jeg regner med at skaffe den så snart jeg har penge til det og tiden til at læse den! Det bliver underligt at det ikke længere er America der er hovedpersonen, men hendes datter Eadlyn (Hvordan i alverden skal man udtale det?!) Jeg håber der kommer meget mere omkring selve verdenen samt masser af aktion og så videre.

Bøger jeg glæder mig til #1

Der udkommer jo hele tiden nye bøger, enten enkelt stående, starten på en ny serie eller en del af serien. Jeg vil prøve at begrænse mit bogkøb, så jeg kan få læst nogle af alle de dejlige bøger jeg har stående, men enkelte nye serier/bøger må jeg gerne købe, og også fortsættelser.

Her er et lille udvalg af dem jeg glæder mig til. (Jeg har allerede forudbestilt Burned, og venter bare på den kommer med posten 😀

12444297Karen Marie Moning: Burned (Fever #7)
Udkommer: 20 januar

“It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.

MacKayla Lane would do anything to save the home she loves. A gifted sidhe-seer, she’s already fought and defeated the deadly Sinsar Dubh—an ancient book of terrible evil—yet its hold on her has never been stronger.
When the wall that protected humans from the seductive, insatiable Fae was destroyed on Halloween, long-imprisoned immortals ravaged the planet. Now Dublin is a war zone with factions battling for control. As the city heats up and the ice left by the Hoar Frost King melts, tempers flare, passions run red-hot, and dangerous lines get crossed. Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.

It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.”

Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.

As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?”

Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the Order’s headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember’s own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George.

In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…

Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

When he inadvertently commits heresy by creating a device that could change the world, Jess discovers that those who control the Great Library believe that knowledge is more valuable than any human life—and soon both heretics and books will burn.…”

17316770Melissa Landers: Invaded (Alienated #2)
Udkommer: 3 februar

“The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe…until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life.

The Way clearly needs humans’ help . . . but with what? And what will they ask for in return?”

18158475Danielle Monsch: Stone Guardian

Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago.

Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to. Her life is as ordinary as it gets – that is, until one day she walks out of her apartment and is attacked by a mob of Zombies, only to be saved by a Gargoyle.

Gargoyles trust no one outside their Clan, but due to a cryptic prophecy, Terak, Leader of the Gargoyles, has been watching over the human woman for months. While he can find no reason why the woman has been singled out, something about her stirs every protective instinct within him. When the attack confirms that the threats against her exist and are real, he convinces Larissa that though their races have never been allies, the best chance of discovering why she has been brought into his world is by working together.

In the course of their investigation Terak becomes entranced by his little human. But when he discovers why Necromancers want her and the great reward that awaits him if he betrays her, he must choose between the welfare of his Clan and not only Larissa’s life, but the fate of this New Realm as well.
