The Point of Death

Historischer Krimi von Peter Tonkin

London, 1594 It’s the opening night of Romeo and Juliet and Mercutio is murdered in the middle of the play – but it’s real blood that flows. Master of Defence Tom Musgrave is hired by the theatre owners to solve the case as quickly and quietly as possible. The theatres have only just reopened after two years of plague, and there are fortunes as well as lives at risk. But as Tom plunges into the mean streets of London in that threatening, thunderous Summer, he swiftly finds himself hunted as well as hunter – for he has jumped blindly into a cat’s cradle of murderous intrigue that has already claimed Marlowe and Walsingham.

Der irische Autor Peter Tonkin ist mit zweierlei bekannt geworden: historische Krimis und packende maritime Thriller. Dieses Buch ist 1998 erstmals erschienen. „The fine details in this book reflect the author’s depth and breadth of research. Layer upon layer of political intrigue, combined with the social mores, foods, fashions and weaponry of the day, make for an absorbing read.“ (Leser) (38 Rezensionen / 3,5 Sterne), 256 Seiten – noch gratis?

Strange the Dreamer

Fantasy von Laini Taylor

Since he was five years old, Lazlo Strange has been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to go in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself – in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever. What happened in Weep to cut it off from the world? What did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

Laini Taylor, geb. 1971 in Chicago hat sich einen guten Ruf als Fantasy-Autorin erarbeitet. “The world building is rich and enchanting, but the characters made me fall in love with the story. Life has been unfair to Lazlo, yet he’s kind, gentle and genuinely wants to help others.” (Leserin) (448 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 545 Seiten noch günstig?

Delirium

Fantasy-Jugendbuch von Lauren Oliver

There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go to the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it. But now love has been declared a dangerous disease. Everyone who turns eighteen must be immunised with a procedure called the Cure. Lena Haloway is looking forward to being able to live the safe, predictable life the government claims the cure will bring. But meeting Alex, an enigmatic boy from the Wilds, might just make her question everything she’s been raised to believe.

Band 1 der Trilogie. „This dystopian story is beautifully written and will make you keep turning pages. Oliver is descriptive and makes you fall in love with Lena and cast, makes you hate the government and the cure, and makes you swoon over and over.” (Leserin) (1.768 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 401 Seiten noch günstig?

Pandemonium

Fantasy-Jugendbuch von Lauren Oliver

Lena Haloway’s been to the very edge. She’s questioned everything she’s ever been taught and fought for love and the life-changing and agonising emotions that come with it. But now, while she may have escaped the tyranny of the government, she is headng into the heart of something that could be just as dangerous – a growing resistance movement where the sparks of a revolution are about to ignite…

Band 2 der Trilogie. „The end of Delirium left me emotionally drained and upset. I wasn’t sure if Oliver would be able to write Pandemonium in a way that would make me feel any better. But holy cow. Pandemonium was amazing.” (Leserin) (1.003 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 336 Seiten noch günstig?

Requiem

Fantasy-Jugendbuch von Lauren Oliver

An all-out uprising has been ignited and Lena Haloway is right at its centre. But things have changed. The Wilds are no longer a safe haven for the rebels and pockets of resistance have opened throughout the country. And when a face from her past reappears, Lena is faced with a devastating choice that could tear her and the revolution apart.

Band 3 der Trilogie. „Un-put-downable, a truly fantastic finale.” (Guardian) (1.089 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 369 Seiten noch günstig?

Passage at Delphi

Historische Zeitreise-Fantasy von A.K. Patch

The lives of history and ancient language professors, Lauren and Zack Fletcher, have been upended in ways neither could imagine in this epic adventure tale that takes readers from sunny San Diego to the stunning vistas of ancient and modern day Greece. The Fletchers carry on their academic lives with relative ease but they are splintered by their contention over career goals and starting a family. Now, unbeknownst to them, they’ve been drafted to take part in events that will span millennia and decide the course of mankind’s future.

Der Amerikaner A.K. Patch packt seine Begeisterung für griechische Geschichte und Mythologie in faszinierende Fantasy. „Enjoyed the history that was woven into the story or should I say the story that was woven into history? Easy to read and follow with enough twists, turns and surprises to keep your curiosity wanting more.“ (Leser) (42 Rezensionen / 4,7 Sterne), 438 Seiten – noch gratis?
