Elias & Laia-In Den Fängen Der Finsternis by Sabaa Tahir

Monday, April 15, 2019
A Reaper at the Gates is written gently as silk and yet so powerful. Good, in this case, I prefer the German cover over the original one, but what matters the most is the story itself. And that one was WOW!

The world will burn. But she will rise from the ashes. The martial empire is on the brink: Emperor Marcus covers the land with the blood of the innocent, while Blood Shrike Helena tries to protect them. Far to the east, Laia knows she has to stop the Nightbringer, and that without Elias. He is bound as a Soul Catcher to the land between the living and the dead. The spiritual realm. Damned to serve unconditionally – even if it means abandoning the woman he loves. Their fate is linked. And they all fight against an ancient power whose destructive power they all underestimate … (personal translation by ©Vi at Inkvotary).

Thoughts

Good, it took me a while to get into the story, to understand all the back and forth during the first few chapters, but then … holy moly!

Zusammen Wie Schwestern by Gayle Forman

This novel, Sisters in Sanity, surprised me. I expected everything, but not what I got. Emotions, passion, strength and the strong will of a teenager who fights for who she is and how she became what she is.

The 16-year-old Brit Hemphill doesn´t know who she can trust. Convinced that she can not be tamed otherwise, her father has deported her to Red Rock – a so-called treatment facility for troubled girls. Where the therapy consists of insulting and punishing and favoring those girls who talk badly about the others. But then Brit meets V, Bebe, Martha, and Cassie – four girls who keep her from going over the edge. And together they have the chance to stand up to the grim reality of Red Rock and bravely go their own way.

You shouldn´t judge this novel by its cover.

The Hollow by Nora Roberts

Friday, March 29, 2019
It was quite refreshing and a real adventure to read this trilogy. Until those books, I was used to reading only pure romance novels the author had written. This here is different, and yet so incredibly familiar to her other work.

For Fox, Caleb, Gage and the other residents of Hawkins Hollow, the number seven portends doom-ever since, as boys, they freed a demon trapped for centuries when their blood spilled upon The Pagan Stone … Now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it. Since that day at The Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into others´ minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability – and this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she´ll have no defenses against the desire that threatens to consume them both …

The mixture of paranormal fiction with the real life we all know, that made me curious.

Prinzessin Undercover-Enthüllungen by Connie Glynn

Saturday, March 23, 2019
We go into the second round with this series. This time without a dust jacket, but not less girly like. Be assured, the novel itself isn´t all sweet, pink and blue. A lot of action is happening, some romance too and in the end, you will say: wait, what?!

Thoughts

Yap, it might seem a bit strange, that an adult reads this series. But why not? We all are having children around us, or most of us do, so why not know what they want to read?
