The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn, 6) – Brandon Sanderson

With The Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self, Brandon Sanderson surprised readers with a New York Times bestselling spinoff of his Mistborn books, set after the action of the trilogy, in a period corresponding to late 19th-century America.

Now, with The Bands of Mourning, Sanderson continues the story. The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metalminds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands, as well as writings in a language that no one can read. Waxillium Ladrian is recruited to travel south to the city of New Seran to investigate. Along the way he discovers hints that point to the true goals of his uncle Edwarn and the shadowy organization known as The Set.

Alice et le miroir des maléfices (Chroniques de Zombieland, 2) – Gena Showalter

Quel mal ronge donc Alice ? Depuis quelque temps, elle entend deux cœurs battre à l’intérieur d’elle, comme si une autre Alice se développait en elle. Pourtant, aucun de ses amis ne semble voir le changement. Ni entendre la voix qui chuchote à ses oreilles quand elle croise son reflet dans le miroir. Mais, un soir, le doute n’est plus permis : horrifiée, Alice ne se reconnaît plus dans la glace: un double maléfique vient de naître, doué d’une vie propre et prêt à faire voler le miroir en éclats pour prendre le contrôle…

Grave Visions (Alex Craft, 4) – Kalayna Price

 Grave Visions by Kalayna Price is the much-anticipated fourth installment in the kick-ass urban fantasy series about Alex Craft, a grave witch who can communicate with the dead.

If you want to hear voices from the dead in Nekros City, you call Alex Craft. She’s a Grave Witch with reasonable rates and extraordinary powers, who specializes in revealing the secrets of the dead. But now she’s the one fighting to keep her own secret. She’s not human—and her newly discovered heritage is causing havoc for her both in the human realm and in Faerie. But her status as an unaffiliated fae also makes her an ideal candidate to investigate a new street drug that has surfaced in several of the spaces between the human and fae worlds.

This glamour-infused drug causes hallucinations that turn real—at least for a while and often with deadly consequences. Searching for the source of this drug—and its purpose—lands Alex front and center in the conflict brewing in Faerie and she must find answers before she’s dragged so deep she loses her freedom.

  2. Great group of books. I think Branden Sanderson is fantastic. Haven’t read him in a while but he is also a fabulous person too!! (My dad works with his wife so he knows them pretty well). I love the cover for Grave Visions. Hope you enjoy.

  3. I still haven’t read the Alice in Zombieland series, even though I was dying to before the first book came out. I still also need to read something by Sanderson. I have spectacular things about him. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Sanderson <3 Je me lis le T5 le mois prochain comme ça je pourrai directement enchaîner avec celui là à sa sortie. J'ai trop hâte de retrouver les personnages, l'univers et la plume de l'auteur.

  5. J’ai le premier “Alice”, je ne devrais pas tarder à le lire, je pense. Quant à Brandon Sanderson, à force de voir son nom et ses bouquins partout, il va vraiment falloir que je m’y mette aussi ! Je ne connais pas Kalayna Price mais ça m’a l’air pas mal 🙂
