Jeu de Patience (Wait for you, 1) – J. L. Armentrout

Étudier dans une université située à des milliers de kilomètres de chez elle est le seul moyen pour Avery Morgansten d’oublier ce qui est arrivé à cette fête d’Halloween, cinq ans plus tôt – un évènement qui a changé sa vie à jamais. Tout ce qu’elle doit faire est se rendre à l’heure en cours, s’assurer que le bracelet à son poignet gauche reste toujours en place, ne pas attirer l’attention sur elle, et peut-être… se faire quelques amis. La seule chose dont elle n’avait pas besoin et n’aurait jamais imaginé était d’attirer le regard d’un homme pouvant briser le futur précaire auquel elle s’était préparé.

Cameron Hamilton fait un bon 1m90, a de surprenants yeux bleus et possède la faculté de la faire désirer des choses qu’elle croyait ne plus jamais pouvoir avoir. Elle sait qu’elle doit rester loin de lui, mais Cam est partout, avec son charme, son flirt et cette satanée fossette qui est tellement… attirante. Se rapprocher de lui est dangereux, mais quand ignorer la tension qui existe entre eux devient impossible, il fait alors surgir en elle quelque chose dont elle ignorait l’existence.

Quand Avery commence à recevoir des emails et coups de fil de menaces, elle est forcée de faire face à son passé, et n’a d’autre choix que de reconnaître que quelqu’un refuse de la laisser oublier cette nuit qui a tout changé. Quand la terrible vérité sortira au grand jour, réussira-t-elle à se relever ? Cam sera-t-il là pour l’aider ou bien l’entraînera-t-elle au fond du gouffre?

Of Flame and Light (Weird Girls, 7) – Cecy RObson

Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightning. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran’s insecurities have driven them apart.

Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative.

The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don’t come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered.

Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . .

Vassa in the Night – Sarah Porter

In the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, the fashionable people put on cute shoes, go to parties in warehouses, drink on rooftops at sunset, and tell themselves they’ve arrived. A whole lot of Brooklyn is like that now—but not Vassa’s working-class neighborhood.

In Vassa’s neighborhood, where she lives with her stepmother and bickering stepsisters, one might stumble onto magic, but stumbling out again could become an issue. Babs Yagg, the owner of the local convenience store, has a policy of beheading shoplifters—and sometimes innocent shoppers as well. So when Vassa’s stepsister sends her out for light bulbs in the middle of night, she knows it could easily become a suicide mission.

But Vassa has a bit of luck hidden in her pocket, a gift from her dead mother. Erg is a tough-talking wooden doll with sticky fingers, a bottomless stomach, and a ferocious cunning. With Erg’s help, Vassa just might be able to break the witch’s curse and free her Brooklyn neighborhood. But Babs won’t be playing fair. . . .

Inspired by the Russian folktale Vassilissa the Beautiful and Sarah Porter’s years of experience teaching creative writing to New York City students.

Unhonored (The Nightbirds, 2) – Tracy & Laura Hickman

A spellbinding tale by the bestselling cocreators of Dragonlance and Ravenloft and the exciting sequel to Unwept

Ellis Harkington is trapped in limbo between life and death, struggling to escape the domination of an evil force masquerading as her friend, Merrick. Only Ellis has ever escaped him, and now that she has discovered the truth, he wants to make sure she can never escape again.

Merrick’s dark power has turned the seaside town of Gamin, Maine, into a place of nightmares. The town is transformed into a decaying succession of infinite rooms, bottomless stairwells, and boundless corridors filled with never-ending masquerades, balls, and banquets. Each pageant is about the life Ellis lived before her return—each revelation more terrifying than the last.

Ellis is desperate to find her missing cousin and leave, but there is no exit from the House of Dreams except, perhaps, through a séance to contact the living.
