King of the Hoboes

Thriller von John Reinhard Dizon

Detective Veronika Heydrich has one mission to complete before she lands her coveted promotion: uncovering the truth behind the „King of the Hoboes“, a man who prides himself on helping the homeless people of New York. Convinced he is more dangerous than helpful, Veronika goes undercover and learns first hand of the trials and tribulations the poverty-stricken must endure. The further underground she goes, the more danger Veronika encounters. The King of the Hoboes turns out to be more vicious and powerful than she ever realized.

Der Amerikaner John Reinhard Dizon hat seit mehr als 25 Jahren Thriller verfasst. „John Reinhard Dizon outdid himself with King of the Hoboes.

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?

Murder Alfresco

Cozy Krimi von Nancy Skopin

Private Investigator Nicoli “Nikki” Hunter has just returned from a trip to Washington D.C., where she survived an attack of the deadly variety and, once again, saved the life of a client. Now, all she wants is for her life to return to normal. She’s determined to focus on her regular customers and is enjoying the familiar routine of restaurant and bar mystery shopping when Abetha Mimbo shows up at her office and insists that someone is planning to kill her son.

Nancy Skopin lebt zwar heute tatsächlich auf dem Festland, aber sie hat dreizehn Jahre auf einer Yacht verbracht, was ihr zu einer ungewöhnlichen Krimiheldin verholfen hat. „You get suspense, romance, & a great story line. Love that Nikki lives on a boat & is an honest to goodness P.I. that uses her brains to solve her cases.“ (Leserin) (27 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 248 Seiten – noch gratis?

Ihre patriotischen Pflichten werden unterbrochen, als ihr der Einbruch des Wilkey-Marktes vorgeworfen wird. “There’s something about Mrs. Odboddy that makes me smile. She is quite the character.

The Perihelion Dystopische SciFi von D.M. Wozniak
Es ist Donnerstag, 3. Januar 2069: Vorabend des Perihelions. Nacht ist auf Bluecore 1C (was vor den Unruhen als die Stadt Chicago bekannt war). Schnee fällt, Pläne werden gemacht, und innerhalb von Stunden wird jeder in 1C für immer verändert. „There are 6 equally balanced protagonists, and the writer bounces between each one in a consistent order. It gives a very comfortable plot flow, and makes sure that the reader doesn’t forget what’s going on. But here is where it gets good. Without spoiling anything from the plot, let me just say that there are really /two/ different plotlines, and they’re both big.“ (Rezensent) (7 Rezensionen / 5,0 Sterne), 525 Seiten – noch gratis?

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?

Bridles Lane

Historischer Roman von Johanna Craven

Cornwall, England. 1740. They say only the brave ride Bridles Lane at night. Vicar Richard Dodge speaks of ghosts and demons, conducting elaborate exorcisms in his churchyard overlooking the lane. And with the villagers sheltering in fear, local smugglers carry their haul up the road to be hidden in the safety of the church. Isaac and Scarlett Bailey have spent their lives hiding contraband in Talland church. Forced into free trade by their father’s mistakes, they want nothing more than to escape the smuggling syndicate and build a life above the law.

Johanna Craven stammt aus Australien, lebt aber jetzt in London. Sie hat lange darüber nachgedacht, ob sie Musikerin oder Schriftstellerin werden sollte. Irgendwann wurde ihr dann klar, dass das eine nicht das andere ausschließt …. „It is both an interesting story and an insight to how life might have been in a time and place that goes largely unreported. History tends to focus on the lives of the rich and famous, not the masses trying to go about their normal lives.“ (Leser) (13 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 306 Seiten – noch gratis?
