COPERTA SAPTAMANII: TOUCH OF FROST (MYTHOS ACADEMY #1)

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy—a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why—especially since I should have been the one who died. . .

CARTEA SAPTAMANII: NIGHTFALL (DARK AGE DAWNING #1)

First in a stunning new post-apocalyptic paranormal romance trilogy. 

Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought in her wildest nightmares that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her-one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.

The mysterious ex-Marine named Mason owes a life-debt to Jenna’s father. Skilled and steadfast, he’s ready for the prophesied Change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and mutant dogs attack-vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong.

When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion-a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.

Werewolves can be dangerous if you get in their way, but they’ll leave you alone if you are careful. They are very good at hiding their natures from the human population, but I’m not human. I know them when I meet them, and they know me, too.

CARTEA SAPTAMANII: THE NIGHT CIRCUS DE ERIN MORGENSTERN

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar GalacticaPartials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival.

COPERTA SAPTAMANII: DEARLY DEPARTED DE LIA HABEL

Dragostea învinge totul, aşa se spune. Dar poate săgeata lui Cupidon să străpungă atât inimile celor vii cât şi ale celor morţi – sau, mai degrabă, ale celor nemorţi? Poate o tânără lady victoriană să găsească adevărata dragoste în braţele unui zombi arătos?

Anul este 2195. Locul este Noua Victorie – o naţiune high-tech modelată după moravurile, obiceiurile şi moda unei epoci străvechi. Nora Dearly, o adolescentă din înalta societate, este mult mai interesată de istoria militară şi de tulburările politice ale ţării ei decât de ceaiurile dansante şi de balurile debutantelor în societate. Dar după moartea iubiţilor ei părinţi, Nora este lăsată în grija – şi la cheremul – mătuşii sale despotice, o arivistă risipitoare care a cheltuit averea familiei şi acum plănuieşte să găsească un soţ bogat pentru nepoata sa. Pentru Nora, nicio altă soartă nu poate fi mai oribilă de-atât – până când este aproape răpită de o armată de cadavre ambulante.
Dar soarta de-abia şi-a început jocul cu Nora. Catapultată din lumea ei de politeţuri de salon, ea se trezeşte împuşcând zombi lihniţi de foame alături de nişte comandouri misterioase înveşmântate în negru şi înfruntând un virus fatal – aşa-numitul Laz – care învie morţii şi, odată cu ei, şi Iadul. Cu greu se poate numi asta o situaţie fericită. Apoi Nora îl cunoaşte pe Bram Griswold, un tânăr soldat curajos, frumos, nobil… şi mort. Dar, aşa cum se întâmplă şi cu restul unităţii lui speciale de nemorţi, norocul şi ştiinţa modernă i-au oferit lui Bram posibilitatea de a-şi păstra mintea, bunele maniere şi toate părţile corpului. Iar când relaţia, bazată pe încredere, dintre el şi Nora se transformă în tandreţe, nu mai există cale de întoarcere. Ei ştiu că în cele din urmă molima va învinge, despărţindu-i pentru totdeauna pe nefericiţii îndrăgostiţi. Dar până atunci, vor avea ceea ce inimile lor – fie că bat sau nu – îşi doresc.

Dearly, Departed, romanul de debut al scriitoarei americance Lia Habel, este un amestec de romance şi thriller, un roman de o imaginaţie nebunească, plin de aventură zgomotoasă, suspans care te înfioară şi comedie macabră ce redefineşte pentru totdeauna conceputul de dragoste nemuritoare.

„O carte captivanta, fascinanta.” – JAMES DASHNER

Intr-un Chicago distopic, orasul in care traieste Beatrice Prior, societatea este impartita in cinci factiuni, fiecare dintre ele cultivand o anumita virtute: Candoarea (cei sinceri), Abnegatia (cei altruisti), Neinfricarea (cei curajosi), Prietenia (cei pasnici) si Eruditia (cei inteligenti). In fiecare an, intr-o zi anume, tinerii in varsta de saisprezece ani trebuie sa-si aleaga factiunea careia ii vor fi devotati pentru tot restul vietii. In ceea ce o priveste pe Beatrice, ea trebuie sa hotarasca daca ramane alaturi de parintii ei sau alege factiunea care considera ca i se potriveste cel mai bine. In cele din urma, alegerea pe care o face va surprinde pe toata lumea, inclusiv pe ea insasi.

In timpul initierii care urmeaza, marcata de o puternica rivalitate, Beatrice isi ia un alt nume, Tris, si se straduieste sa afle cine sunt cu adevarat prietenii ei si, de asemenea, daca o poveste de dragoste cu un baiat uneori fascinant, alteori enervant, isi poate gasi locul in viata pe care ea si-a ales-o. Dar Tris are un secret pe care l-a ascuns de toata lumea deoarece fusese prevenita ca i-ar putea aduce moartea. Si, pe masura ce descopera un conflict care ia treptat amploare, amenintand sa destrame societatea aparent perfecta in care traieste, afla ca secretul ei ar putea-o ajuta sa-i salveze pe cei dragi… sau ar distruge-o.

Un pasionant thriller distopic, din care nu lipsesc decizii majore, tradari sfisietoare, consecinte uimitoare si o neasteptata poveste de dragoste.

Monster hunter Evangeline Stone woke up on the wrong side of dead this morning—and now there’s hell to pay. 

Barely recovered from her extended torture at the hands of mad scientist Walter Thackery, Evy can use a break. What she gets instead is a war, as the battered Triads that keep Dreg City safe find themselves under attack by half-Blood vampires who have somehow retained their reason, making them twice as lethal. Worse, the Halfies are joined by a breed of were-creature long believed extinct—back and more dangerous than ever. Meanwhile, Evy’s attempts at reconciliation with the man she loves take a hit after Wyatt is viciously assaulted—an attack traced to Thackery, who has not given up his quest to exterminate all vampires . . . even if he has to destroy Dreg City to do it. With Wyatt’s time running out, another threat emerges from the shadows and a staggering betrayal shatters the fragile alliance between the Triads, vampires, and shapeshifters, turning Evy’s world upside down forever.
