RECENZIE+CAST: HEARTS IN DARKNESS DE LAURA KAYE

REZUMAT:

Makenna James thinks her day can’t get any worse, until she finds herself stuck in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call and juggling too much stuff, the pin-striped accountant caught only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights went out.

Caden Grayson is amused when a redhead literally falls at his feet. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he’s terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he’s trapped in his own worst nightmare.

To fight fear, they must both reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?

OPINIE PERSONALA:

Carte nerecomandata minorilor sub 18 ani!

Am citit cartea asta doar din pura curiozitate, parea ceva interesant cu o poveste oarecum noua pentru mine, dar nu pot sa spun ca am fost prea impresionat de ea… Nici nu o sa ma lungesc prea mult cu recenzia…

Doua persoane care raman prinse intr-un lift, doi straini care nu se cunosc. El e tipul aparent rau, plin de tatuaje si piercing-uri, care a folosit durerea pentru a incerca sa uite trauma din copilarie, ea e fata de afaceri oarecum cuminte, el e cel cu claustrofobie, e tipicul barbat in cazul de fata, care este judecat dupa aspect, plin de tatuaje, piercing-uri, ras in cap, cu o cicatrice urata in forma de luna care ii acopera o parte a capului…

Ceea ce ma enervat la cartea asta este faptul ca atunci cand Makenna a intrat in lift, el nu a vazut-o la fata, doar a putut observa ca are parul rosu, dar atat a fost de ajuns ca sa se indragosteasca de ea si sa-i provoace cele mai insiropate ganduri, la fel a fost si cu ea, dupa ce au ramas blocati in lift, in intuneric cei doi se joaca oarecum de-a soarecele si pisica… Iar dupa o ora de confesiuni trec la intrebari personale si intime…

Unicul lucru care pot sa spun ca mi-a placut a fost intr-un fel idea originala dar nu prea bine dezvoltata, si faptul ca cei doi nu aveau 15-16 ani, Makenna avea 25 de ani, Caden 27 (daca tin bine minte).

In mare parte cartea e destul de OK, merita citita, doar din curiozitate:)

CITAT:

“His demanding tongue tasted so damn good, and his piercing bit deliciously against her lip from the aggressive way he pursued her over and over. His hands tugged and massaged at her hair and neck. He just surrounded her. The difference in their height made Caden lean down over her. The way he forced her head back commanded her to open up to him. With the metal handle of the door pressing into her back, she felt completely enveloped in him, in his ardor, his scent. The world dropped away. There was just Caden.”

NOTA:

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or „glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers. As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future.

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.

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.

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.

WISHLIST: UNEARTHLY (UNEARTHLY #1) DE CYNTHIA HAND

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she’s part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn’t easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there’s another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara’s less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she’d have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

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.

Mercy Thompson’s sexy next-door neighbor is a werewolf.

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.

INTERVIU CU JULIE CASSAR

Hey, am avut oportunitatea de a sta de vorba cu Julie Cassar, autoarea romanului „Ruby Blue” care l-am prezentat mai jos. Pot sa spun ca este o persoana deosebita si a acceptat sa ne acorde un interviu pentru blog. Sper sa va placa 🙂

  • Hi Julie, thank you so much for stopping by. At the beginning tell us something about you.

My background is in fine art and I have worked as a graphic designer and painter. I am a mother of three and for the past ten years have worked part time as a legal assistant. In between family, work, painting, photography and writing, I recently started running and ran my first half-marathon in October 2011. I love coffee, ice cream, wine, chocolate, really good pizza and dancing at the local pub (not necessarily all at the same time! Haha!) I’m pretty much an all-around optomistic goofball. 

  • “Ruby Blue” is your debut young adult novel, tell us something about the book, how the story came out in your mind?

I’ve actually had this story in my head for about six or seven years. It’s hard to remember exactly how it came to me because it’s been with me for so long. I started to really love gardening (like my mom) about 10 years ago… and I have always been drawn to the magic of fairies. After my son was born in 2004, as I worked in the garden, I began to get the ideas for this story. I always thought it would be a children’s book, then, I realized that the story I wanted to tell was a bit more mature… and out came Ruby Blue. It’s a YA fantasy/romance book about your average teenager, who is constantly being annoyed by her little brother, is best friends with possibly the only Goth kid in town, and she has a secret… she can see fairies. After possibly the hottest guy she’s ever known finally asks her out, she can barely manage a two-word sentence when a series of bizarre incidents strike their lakeside town. As an ancient myth unfolds, Ruby and her friends must tackle some extraordinary circumstances with her very ordinary abilities.

  • What was your biggest source of inspiration when you first started to write “Ruby Blue”?

The belief that fairy tales can come true, that we can create our own magic, that miracles happen every day, and my kids… my kids are a huge inspiration to me. 

  • Who are the authors that inspire you on writing the book?

Stephanie Meyer, MaryJanice Davidson, Brent Crawford, JK Rowling and Rose Pressey

  • How does it feel to have your story out there after, I can only imagine a lot of hard work?

It feels amazing. What is more exciting is that every new reader I get and every new review that’s posted is a huge rush. It’s fantastic! I love that people are enjoying something I’ve created. The feeling is indescribable. I just hope that people continue to read it, and spread the word. 

  • Who is your favorite character and why?

Oh gosh! This is a tough one! I actually love all four of the main characters… During this process, I really have fallen in love with them and each of them have a special place with me. They each have their own unique personality traits that I’ve based on people I know and love in my own life… To pick just one is just too hard!

  • Do you have a chapter that you really enjoy writing it?

I loved writing the chapter about the adventure golf place (it was fun) and I loved writing the last chapter. There was something very satisfying about coming to the end and tying up all of the pieces. 

  • What are you reading right now and what book/books have you had your eye on lately but haven’t gotten to read yet?

I am currently reading a paranormal romance called “Ghouls Night Out” by Rose Pressey and I just finished a Horror/Suspense book called “Asylum Lake,” by R.A. Evans. “The Hungers Games” is on my list to read! I feel terrible that I haven’t read it yet. 

  • Would you like to say something to your fans from Romania?

I would love to thank you all for the interview opportunity and for reading this blog. I hope everyone in Romania decides to check out my book! I’d be honored and flattered to have you read it and let me know what you think. I love to hear from readers…especially if they enjoyed my story! 

Thanks for stopping by, Julie! It was a pleasure having you 🙂

CITESTE PRIMELE DOUA CAPITOLE DIN „THE RAVEN BOYS” DE MAGGIE STIEFVATER

Puteti citi primele doua capitole AICI

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of theShiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.

IN STRAINATATE: HEX HALL DE RACHEL HAWKINS

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie’s estranged father–an elusive European warlock–only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it’s her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

Gaia has always believed this is her duty, until the night her mother and father are arrested by the very people they so loyally serve.

Now Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught, but her choice is simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.

COPERTA SAPTAMANII: PARTIALS (PARTIALS #1) DE DAN WELLS

Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.

When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.

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.

IN STRAINATATE: CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES DE CHLOE NEILL

Probabil ca a-ti auzit de seria asta, autoarea a publicat la noi primul volum din trilogia Elita Intunecata, si aceasta este in curs de publicare.

Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires #1)

First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student’s introduction into a society of vampires.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker-and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan „Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude- and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood.

 

Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires #2)

The story of a young heiress’s initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues…

Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they’re enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But should people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle-the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.

So now it’s up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn’t want peace between them-someone with an ancient grudge…

 

Twice Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #3)

Shapeshifters from across the country are convening in the Windy City, and as a gesture of peace, Master Vampire Ethan Sullivan has offered their leader a very special bodyguard: Merit, Chicago’s newest vampire. Merit is supposed to protect the Alpha, Gabriel Keene-and to spy for the vamps while she’s at it. Oh, and luckily Ethan’s offering some steamy, one-on-one combat training sessions to help her prepare for the mission.

Unfortunately, someone is gunning for Gabriel, and Merit soon finds herself in the line of fire. She’ll need all the help she can get to track down the would-be assassin, but everywhere she turns, there are rising tensions between supernaturals-not least between her and a certain green-eyed, centuries-old master vampire.

 

Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #4)

Chicago is beset by supernatural tensions, and Merit–vampire protector of a safe haven called Cadogan house–is worried that the humans will be reaching for their pitchforks any minute. It doesn’t help that yet another vampire rave is broken up by the mayor, and a new inhibition-reducing drug is circulating through the community.

 

Drink Deep (Chicagoland Vampires #5)

Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and recently turned vampire Merit can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times haven’t been this precarious for vampires since they came out of the closet. If only they could lay low for a bit, and let the mortals calm down.

That’s when the waters of Lake Michigan suddenly turn pitch black-and things really start getting ugly.

Chicago’s mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows only the darkest magic could have woven a spell powerful enough to change the very fabric of nature. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for vampires and humans alike.

 

Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires #6)

Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans.

Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed. No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

IN STRAINATATE: THE IMMORTAL RULES (BLOOD OF EDEN #1)

In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters.
Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn’t easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.

IN STRAINATATE: IRONSKIN DE TINA CONNOLLY

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask.

It’s the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain—the ironskin.

Now Jane returns to the war-torn country to help a fey-cursed child. Helping the unruly Dorie suppress her curse is hard enough—she certainly didn’t expect to fall for the girl’s father, the enigmatic artist Mr. Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio—and come out as beautiful as the fey.

Jane knows he cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things are true? Step by step Jane must unlock the secrets of her new life—and discover just how far she will go to become whole again.
