[Book Haul] Août 2018

20180824_190315 (1).jpg

Ce mois-ci j’ai été à Londres et, étant donnés les prix, j’en ai profité pour acheter quelques livres ! Dans ce petit (pour une fois) book haul, vous ne trouverez donc quasiment que des livres en anglais. Je suis très contente de mes achats, certains étaient même dédicacés par les auteurs, bref j’ai fait de très bonnes affaires et j’ai hâte de découvrir tout ça ! 


L’enfant de Poussière de Patrick K. Dewdney – Au diable Vauvert – 624 pages 

Résumé :  La mort du roi et l’éclatement politique qui s’ensuit plongent les primeautés de Brune dans le chaos. Orphelin des rues qui ignore tout de ses origines, Syffe grandit à Corne-Brune, une ville isolée sur la frontière sauvage. Là, il survit librement de rapines et de corvées, jusqu’au jour où il est contraint d’entrer au service du seigneur local. Tour à tour serviteur, espion, apprenti d’un maître-chirurgien, son existence bascule lorsqu’il se voit accusé d’un meurtre. En fuite, il épouse le destin rude d’un enfant-soldat.


Legacy of Orïsha, book 1 : Children of Blood and bone de Tomi Adeyemi – Editions Henry Holt & Compgany – 525 pages 

Résumé : Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl, and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers – and her growing feelings for an enemy.


The folk of the air, book 1 : The Cruel Prince de Holly Black – Editions Hot Key Books – 384 pages 

Résumé : Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever. And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe. Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King. To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences. In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.


Ashen Torment, book 1 : Witchsign de Den Patrick – Editions Harper Voyager – 464 pages 

RésuméIt has been seventy-five years since the dragons’ rule of fire and magic was ended. Out of the ashes, the Solmindre Empire was born.
Since then, the tyrannical Synod has worked hard to banish all manifestations of the arcane from existence. However, children are still born bearing the taint of the arcane, known to all as witchsign. Vigilants are sent out across the continent of Vinterkveld to find and capture all those bearing the mark.
No one knows when the Vigilants of the Synod will appear and enforce the Empire’s laws.
But today they’re coming.
And gods help those who bear the sign of the witch.


Grace and Fury de Tracy Banghart – Editions Little, Brown & Compagny – 311 pages 

Résumé : In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other on an island prison where women must fight to survive. Serina has spent her whole life preparing to become a Grace – selected to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining example of the perfect woman. But her headstrong and rebellious younger sister has a dangerous secret, and one wrong move could cost both sisters everything. Can Serina fight? And will Nomi win?
