Magic Binds (Kate Daniels, 9) – Ilona Andrews

Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she’s faced could have prepared her for this…

Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar…

Kate’s father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in his never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…

The Seer’s Choice – JK Cheney

Genoveva Jardim’s father was a monster—a defrocked priest who used his healer’s gift to murder instead. Determined to make amends for the deaths her father brought to the Golden City, she turned her back on her life among the aristocracy. She’s chosen to work for the Special Police, learning how to use the healer’s gift she’d never even known she had. She wants to save lives instead of killing like her father.

Rafael Pinheiro has kept an eye on Miss Jardim for some time now. The very first time he met her, his seer’s gift told him he would someday marry her. What he can’t figure out is why he would choose her. She’s young and an aristocrat—hardly a match for a mere police captain raised in an orphanage. They don’t seem to have anything in common.

But when Miss Jardim’s life is threatened, everything changes…

After the War – JK Cheney

After the Great War, Alejandro Ferreira wandered across Europe, unable even to remember his name, until one night in Lisboa, a young woman recognizes him. She brings him home to his family–one he can’t recall, but very much wants to keep.
His seer’s gift has been as much of a trial as a blessing. It didn’t keep him out of trouble during the Great War, either–someone cursed him to lose his memory. Someone else is after him, wanting him to keep a secret he doesn’t even remember he has. And he quickly learns that all is not well between himself and his lovely wife. Without his memories or his seer’s gift, can Alejandro rebuild his life and unveil his stalker before they eliminate him?

 

Boneshaker (Le siècle mecanique, 1) – Cherie Priest

Nous sommes en 1880. La Guerre Civile américaine fait rage depuis deux décennies, poussant les avancées technologiques dans d’étranges directions. Dans les Territoires de l’Ouest, les villes baignent dans des gaz mortels, alors que la terre est vidée de ses ressources. Sur la frontière entre le Nord et le Sud, les espions fomentent leurs complots et les trafiquants font plus d’argent que leur gouvernement. C’est dans ce monde que vivent Briar Wilkes et son fils. Elle est la veuve de l’infâme Dr. Blue, créateur du Boneshaker, la machine qui détruisit Seattle, perçant accidentellement une poche de gaz qui transforma les vivants en non-morts. Mais quand son fils décide de franchir le mur qui cerne Seattle en ruine dans l’espoir de réécrire l’histoire, elle doit le retrouver au plus vite avant qu’il ne lui arrive malheur. Sa quête la conduira dans une ville grouillant de morts-vivants affamés, de pirates de l’air, de seigneurs criminels et de réfugiés armés jusqu’aux dents. Seule Briar peut le ramener vivant.
