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.

CARTEA SAPTAMANII: OBSIDIAN (LUX #1)

Starting over sucks.When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.And then he opened his mouth.Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me.You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.

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.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side… and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Iar cea care trebuie să descopere ce secrete periculoase ascunde Sanatoriul Lyle sunt eu… înainte ca tainele − şi scheletele − sale să revină ca să mă bântuie.

„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.

CARTEA SAPTAMANII: WRONG SIDE OF DEAD (DREG CITY 4) DE KELLY MEDING

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.

Mai jos va las o scurta descriere a cartii.

The world is not the way it was. The dead have risen, and the living are under attack. The powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah
