In My Mailbox (1)

Le In My Mailbox a été mis en place par Kristi du blog The Story Siren et inspiré par Alea du blog Pop culture junkie. C'est un moyen de partager les livres reçus chaque semaine dans notre boîte aux lettres ainsi que les livres achetés ou empruntés à la bibliothèque. Ce rendez-vous a été repris en France par le blog Lire ou mourir où sont regroupés les liens.

    Half Blood de Jennifer L. Armentrout

    edition : Spencer Hill Press

    The Hematoi descend from the unions of Gods and Mortals, and the children of two Hematoi _ pure-bloods _ have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and Mortals _ well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options : become trained sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule # 1 : relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.
    Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem _ staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery : being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would king of suck.

    Firebird #1
    Paperback - Edition : Harper

    As the daughter of two brillant physicists, Marguerite Caine grew up surronded by wild scientific theories, always encoraged to imagine the improbable or even the impossible. But when her father is murdered, Marguerite's life is turned upside down. All the evidence points to one person _ Paul, her parents' handsome, enigmatic protégé. Before the law can touch him, though, Paul uses Marguerite's mother's latest invention _ a device called the Firebird, which allows people to leap into alternate dimensions _ to escape.
    With the help of another physics student, Theo, Marguerite chases Paul through various dimensions, determined to avenge her father. Her parents theorized that people who have met in one reality will be likely to meet in another...that key moments will happen over and over, in different ways. But when Marguerite leaps into each new world, she meets another version of Paul that has her doubting his guilt and questionning her father may be more complex, and more sinister, than she ever dreamed.

    Daughter of Smoke & Bone de Laini Taylor

    Ebook - Edition : Brown Books for young Readers

    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers whohave crept through a slit in the sky.
    In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.
    And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
    Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real. She's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she ? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
    When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself ?
