Murder of Crows (The Others, 2) – Anne Bishop

After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murders of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

Marque de l’Ombre (Dark Elite, 2) – Chloe Neill

Lili doit apprendre à contrôler ses nouveaux pouvoirs… en plus de supporter les pestes de son lycée, de faire ses devoirs et de se battre la nuit contre des magiciens maléfiques ! Tout cela lui laisse à peine le temps de rêver à Jason, ce charmant jeune homme qui cache un secret garou-esque. Quand, lors d’une patrouille nocturne, des créatures bizarres menacent ses amis, Lili prend conscience qu il n est plus temps de s’entraîner. Les Adeptes ont besoin de ses pouvoirs pour empêcher une bataille paranormale qui mettrait Chicago à feu et à sang !

 

Séduis-moi si tu peux – Jennifer Crusie

Calvin Morrisey ne parie que s’il est sûr de gagner. Mais rien n’est joué à l’issue du dîner avec Minerva Dobbs, bien décidée à fuir les séducteurs. Les deux célibataires que tout oppose décident de limiter les dégâts et de ne pas se revoir. Mais le destin en a décidé autrement… Ensemble, ils devront déjouer la théorie du chaos, faire face à une psychologue peu commode, à un chat à l’intelligence inquiétante, et à d’autres enjeux bien plus risqués que tout ce qu’ils avaient pu imaginer. Le plus grand d’entre tous : accepter de croire au grand amour.

 

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowel

Cath et Wren sont des jumelles inséparables. Fans de Simon Snow, elles passent leur temps sur les forums consacrés à l’auteur. Mais la passion de Cath a tellement pris le pas sur sa vie que Wren lui annonce l’impensable : cette année, à la fac, elles feront chambre à part. L’une est prête à renoncer à ses rêves pour profiter dignement des joies de la vie estudiantine. L’autre est soudain projetée dans un univers hostile dans lequel tout le monde – ses profs, sa famille et sa colocataire – méprise la fanfiction. C’est alors qu’elle tombe sous le charme d’un obsédé de la littérature…

 

Lovely, Dark and Deep – Susannah Sandlin

From award-winning author Susannah Sandlin comes a heart-pounding romantic thriller that pits a quick-witted scientist and a scarred ex–combat diver against a ruthless billionaire treasure hunter with ties to the White House.

When biologist Gillian Campbell makes an offhand comment about a family curse during a TV interview, she has no idea what her words will set in motion. Within days, Gillian finds herself at the mercy of a member of the C7, a secretive international group of power brokers with a dangerous game: competing to find the world’s most elusive treasures, no matter the cost, in money or in lives. To save her family, Gillian teams up with Shane Burke, a former elite diver who’s lost his way, navigating the brutal “death coast” of the North Atlantic to find what the collector seeks: the legendary Ruby Cross of the Knights Templar, stolen by Gillian’s ancestor and lost at sea four hundred years ago.

This book was initially released in episodes as a Kindle Serial. All episodes are now available for immediate download as a complete book.

American Craftsmen – Tom Doyle

In modern America, two soldiers will fight their way through the magical legacies of Poe and Hawthorne to destroy an undying evil—if they don’t kill each other first.

US Army Captain Dale Morton is a magician soldier—a “craftsman.” After a black-ops mission gone wrong, Dale is cursed by a Persian sorcerer and haunted by his good and evil ancestors. Major Michael Endicott, a Puritan craftsman, finds gruesome evidence that the evil Mortons, formerly led by the twins Roderick and Madeline, have returned, and that Dale might be one of them.
Dale uncovers treason in the Pentagon’s highest covert ranks. He hunts for his enemies before they can murder him and Scherie, a new friend who knows nothing of his magic.
Endicott pursues Dale, divided between his duty to capture a rogue soldier and his desire to protect Dale from his would-be assassins. They will discover that the demonic horrors that have corrupted American magic are not bound by family or even death itself.
In Tom Doyle’s thrilling debut, American Craftsmen, Seal Team Six meets ancient magic–with the fate of the United States hanging in the balance . . .

 Half-Off Ragnarok (Incryptid, 3) – Seanan Mcguire

When Alex Price agreed to go to Ohio to oversee a basilisk breeding program and assist in the recovery of his psychic cousin, he didn’t expect people to start dropping dead. But bodies are cropping up at the zoo where he works, and his girlfriend—Shelby Tanner, an Australian zoologist with a fondness for big cats—is starting to get suspicious.

Worse yet, the bodies have all been turned partially to stone…

The third book in the InCryptid series takes us to a new location and a new member of the family, as Alex tries to balance life, work, and the strong desire not to become a piece of garden statuary. Old friends and new are on the scene, and danger lurks around every corner.

Of course, so do the talking mice.
