Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson, 6) – Darynda Jones
Few things in life can come between a grim reaper and her coffee, but the sexy, sultry son of Satan is one of them. Now that Reyes Farrow has asked for her hand, Charley Davidson feels it’s time to learn more about his past, but Reyes is reluctant to open up. When the official FBI file of his childhood abduction lands in her lap, Charley decides to go behind her mysterious beau’s back and conduct her own investigation. Because what could go wrong?
Unfortunately, another case has fallen into her lap—one with dangerous implications. Some very insistent men want Charley to hunt down a witness who is scheduled to testify against their boss, a major player in the local crime syndicate. If Charley doesn’t come up with an address in 48 hours, the people closest to her will start to disappear.
Add to that a desperate man in search of the soul he lost in a card game, a dogged mother determined to find the ghost of her son, and a beautiful, young Deaf boy haunted by his new ability to see the departed as clearly as he sees the living, and Charley has her hands full. The fact that Reyes has caught on to her latest venture only adds fuel to the inferno that he is. Good thing for Charley she’s used to multi-tasking and always up for a challenge…especially when that challenge comes in the form of Reyes Farrow.
Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties, 2) – Jenn Bennett
It’s the Roaring Twenties in foggy San Francisco. Prohibition is on, inhibitions are low, and dark magic is rolling into town…
Archaeologist Lowe Magnusson is packing something everyone wants. The djed amulet, a priceless Egyptian artifact, will fetch Lowe a hefty paycheck from one of San Francisco’s wealthiest. But when the handsome Swede runs into his patron’s uptight daughter, what he once considered easy money becomes maddeningly complicated…
Cursed with deadly spirits as her constant companions, curator Hadley Bacall must keep calm to hold her dangerous specters at bay and prevent them from lashing out at anything—or anyone. Trouble is, Lowe is driving her crazy, but her father needs the artifact he’s transporting. While Hadley can feel the amulet’s power, she can’t fathom the destruction—or the desire—it’s about to stir up.
Against the Dawn (Shaede Assassin, 4) – Amanda Bonilla
Six months can feel like just a couple of weeks when you’ve been away in another realm. Literally.
Now that Darian is back in Seattle, she’s ready to face the life—and the man—she left behind. But it’s not going to be easy when a ghost from her past shows up looking to wreak havoc on Seattle’s supernatural crime scene.
Darian isn’t as careless as she used to be, though. She and Tyler, her sexy Jinn protector, have come a long way in the trust department. And it’s a good thing too—because when Ty contracts her to assassinate a wickedly powerful supernatural who goes by the name of Mithras, it will take all her faith in Ty, and herself, to get the job done.
While Darian does whatever it takes to get to her mark, Xander, the Shaede King is busy making plans of his own. With Darian’s attention divided between Lorik’s secrets and her mission she might not be able to stop Xander from doing anything in his power to separate Darian from her sworn protector and in the process, destroy his own kingdom…

Suivez les règles.
Souvenez-vous de ce qui s’est passé.
NE TOMBEZ JAMAIS AMOUREUX.
Voici l’histoire de Prenna James, une jeune fille de dix-sept ans qui a immigré aux États-Unis, à New York, à l’âge de douze ans. Mais Prenna ne venait pas d’un autre pays. Elle venait … d’une autre époque, du futur. Prenna et ceux qui ont fui avec elle jusqu’au temps présent, doivent suivre un ensemble de règles strictes pour assurer la survie du genre humain : ne jamais révéler d’où ils viennent, ne jamais interférer dans le cours de l’Histoire, et ne jamais développer de relations intimes avec quiconque en dehors de leur communauté. Mais Jenna rencontre Ethan Jarves …. Une romance impossible aux enjeux planétaires.
C’est un roman psychologique et un roman d’amour comme seule Brashares sait les écrire. Mais aussi un thriller littéraire, portrait puissant d’une société qui pourrait être la nôtre.
