Kommentare: |
Hallo ihr Lieben,

inzwischen haben wir schon Anfang Februar und damit ist schon wieder der erste Monat im Jahr 2015 rum. Wahnsinn, wie die Zeit verfliegt, oder?

Januar war für mich zwar ein langer, aber auch erfolgreicher Monat. Ich kann mich jetzt Bachelor of Art nennen und hab damit endlich mein BWL Studium abgeschlossen. :-) Aber da ich ein Master Studium an den Bachelor rangehangen habe, hatte ich auch Prüfungen... -.- Zum Glück sind die jetzt aber vorbei und ich hab nun verdiente Semsterferien und somit Zeit gleich mal im Internet nach zukünftigen schmökermaterial Ausschau zu halten.

Ich habe auch einige tolle Bücher, die dieses Jahr in englisch erscheinen entdeckt und wollte euch diese gerne zeigen - vielleicht ist ja auch was für euch dabei? ;-)

Reawakend by Colleen Houck

25. August 2015

When seventeen-year-old Lilliana Young enters the Metropolitan Museum of Art one morning during spring break, the last thing she expects to find is a live Egyptian prince with godlike powers, who has been reawakened after a thousand years of mummification.
And she really can’t imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe.
But fate has taken hold of Lily, and she, along with her sun prince, Amon, must travel to the Valley of the Kings, raise his brothers, and stop an evil, shape-shifting god named Seth from taking over the world. [Amazon]

Tiger´s Dream by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Dream is the fifth and final book in the Tiger's Curse series. It is a top secret project. To say anything about it is to give away everything, so I've been very tight lipped regarding it. What I can tell you is that there will be tigers in it and it will still feature the characters you love. Also there will be shocking surprises and plenty of exciting things happening.

There is still no release date at this time but check back here for news and updates.

Rouge - The Talon Saga Book 2 by Julie Kagawa

28. April 2015

Ember Hill left the dragon organization Talon to take her chances with rebel dragon Cobalt and his crew of rogues. But Ember can't forget the sacrifice made for her by the human boy who could have killed her—Garret Xavier Sebastian, a soldier of the dragonslaying Order of St. George, the boy who saved her from a Talon assassin, knowing that by doing so, he'd signed his own death warrant.

Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the Order's headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember's own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George.

A reckoning is brewing and the secrets hidden by both sides are shocking and deadly. Soon Ember must decide: Should she retreat to fight another day…or start an all-out war? [Amazon]

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

10. Februar 2015

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.
To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal. [Amazon]

Waterfire Sage Book 2: Rouge Wave by Jennifer Donnelly

06. Januar 2015

Serafina, Neela, Ling, Ava, Becca, and Astrid, six mermaids from realms scattered throughout the seas and freshwaters, were summoned by the leader of the river witches to learn an incredible truth: the mermaids are direct descendants of the Six Who Ruled-powerful mages who once governed the lost empire of Atlantis. The ancient evil that destroyed Atlantis is stirring again, and only the mermaids can defeat it. To do so, they need to find magical talismans that belonged to the Six.

Serafina believes her talisman was buried with an old shipwreck. While researching its location, she is almost discovered by a death rider patrol led by someone familiar. . . . The pain of seeing him turned traitor is devastating.

Neela travels to Matali to warn her parents of the grave threat facing their world. But they find her story outlandish; a sign that she needs to be confined to her chamber for rest and recovery. She escapes and travels to Kandina, where her talisman is in the possession of fearsome razormouth dragons.

As they hunt for their talismans, both Serafina and Neela find reserves of courage and cunning they didn't know they possessed. They face down danger and death, only to endure a game-changing betrayal, as shocking as a rogue wave. [Amazon]

The Heart of Betrayal - Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

07. Juli 2015

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape . . . and even less of being together.

Desperate to save her life, Lia’s erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komisar that she has a magical gift, and the Komisar's interest in Lia is greater than either Kaden or Lia foresaw.

Meanwhile, the foundations of Lia's deeply-held beliefs are crumbling beneath her. Nothing is straightforward: there's Rafe, who lied to her, but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom she always believed to be barbarians but whom she now realizes are people who have been terribly brutalized by the kingdoms of Dalbreck and Morrighan. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her very sense of self, Lia will have to make powerful choices that affect her country, her people... and her own destiny. [Amazon]

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

05. Mai 2015

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin-one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin-and his world-forever. [Amazon]

Lunar Chronicles 04: Winter by Marissa Meyer

10. November 2015

When Princess Winter was thirteen, the rumor around the Lunar court was that her glamour would soon be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. In a fit of jealousy, Levana disfigured Winter. Four years later, Winter has sworn off the use of her glamour altogether. Despite her scars, Winter’s natural beauty, her grace, and her gentleness are winning admiration from the Lunar people that no amount of mind-control could achieve.

Winter despises her stepmother, but has never dreamed of standing up to her. That is, until she realizes that she may be the only one with the power to confront the queen.

Can Cinder, Prince Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, Thorne, Princess Winter, and the palace guard Jacin find their happily ever afters? [Goodreads]

Ich kann es kaum erwarten bis zum Release von Reawakend von Colleen Houck. Scheinbar bleibt sie ihrem Genre treu, doch statt nach Indien geht es diesmal nach Ägypten. Ich finde das Colleen Houck ein unglaubliches Talent hat wundervolle Abenteuer Geschichten zu erzählen, weshalb Reawakend zusammen mit dem Tiger´s Dream meine absolutes Must Have in diesem Jahr sind.
Ob der 5. Teil auch 2015 erscheint steht zwar noch in den Sternen, aber er kommt und ich freue mich sooooo sehr. Ich finde es schade, dass der Heyne Verlag den gerade erschienen 4. Band als Finale bezeichnet, denn anscheint werden sie den wirklichen letzten Band nicht in deutsch auflegen. Aber es so sein wird und wichtiger bis es soweit ist wird noch ein wenig zeit vergehen.

Desweiteren freue ich mich auf den letzten Band der Lunar Chroniken und bin sicher das wir spätestens Anfang 2016 den deutschen Band in unseren Händen halten werden. Zum Überbrücken des Wartens können wir ja die Geschichte von Levana lesen, die gerade in englisch erschienen ist und sicherlich gegen Mitte/Ende des Jahres auch bei uns erscheinen wird. :-)

Tja und auch Rouge ist ein Must Have, obwohl ich gerade erst angefangen habe Talon zu lesen. Ich habe in einem anderen Blog gelesen, dass die Reihe sogar 5 Bände umfassen soll und bis 2019 geplant ist. Zusammen mit dem 3. Band der Call of the Forgotten: The Forgotten Crown beglückt Julie Kagawa ihr Fans in diesem Jahr, auch wenn für diesen Band noch kein Release bekannt ist.

Rouge Wave und The Betrayal Heart sind beides Fortsetzungen, von Büchern die ich sehr vielversprechend finde und gerne in nächster Zeit lesen möchte.

Court of Thorns and Roses und Red Queen sind die Auftakte zweier Reihen und Red Queen erscheint bereits im April in Deutsch unter dem Titel Die Rote Königin beim Carlsen Verlag. :-)

Diese Bücher sind nur meine engere Auswahl, tatsächlich erscheinen wirklich viele Bücher 2015 die spannend klingen, aber das würde den Rahmen ds schon viel zu langen Posts sprängen.^^

Viele Liebe Grüße
