Rea was first the bodyguard of Crown Prince Robin, then his secret lover. After the dramatic events at the English royal court, she had to flee. In Paris, she hopes for a new life in freedom, because in France, people may touch – even the in England feared Magdalene must not hide. But when Ninon, Rea´s closest confidante and sister of the French King, calls her friend to the court, Rea brings in the curse of her past: Nobody less than Prince Robin awaits her – but not because he wants to win Rea back, but because he stops for Ninon´s hand.

Good, I admit it, at first, I wasn´t very sure if I had made the right choice to ask for this second book. 

Schlafe Für Immer by Mary Higgins Clark & Alafair Burke

What a fast-paced and thrilling read The Sleeping Beauty Killer is. From the very first moment, you are in the middle of a drama that contains many twists and turns, surprises and a main character who knows how to do what she does best.

It´s been fifteen years since Casey Carter´s fiancé was murdered. Casey was behind bars for fifteen years. Innocent, as she always claimed. Only that did not even believe her own mother. Now, after her release, she finally wants to cleanse her name. In desperation, she turns to Laurie Moran, who treats uncleared criminal cases in her TV show Under Suspicion. Laurie hesitates initially because the evidence clearly speaks against Casey. But then she takes on the case – unaware of the misfortune she conjures up with it. (personal translation by ©Vi at Inkvotary). 


I literally read The Sleeping Beauty Killer overnight. There was no chance to put it aside, even for one minute. 

Mädchen In Scherben by Kathleen Glasgow

Thursday, June 14, 2018
I don´t know what exactly made me want to read Girl in Pieces. No matter how I put it, the cover – not the original one or the one from the German edition – is really speaking to me or nice to look at. In fact, when I got the offer from the publisher, I was irritated. A feeling that didn´t change, even after I started reading this book.

“I remember the stars that night. Like salt crystals, they sparkled in the sky. As if someone had spilled the caster on a very dark fabric. Finally, I thought they were the last thing I would see before I die.” (personal translation by ©Vi at Inkvotary) 


It turned out to be a novel that I wouldn´t consider a YA book or a book for children 14+. This novel is brutal, blunt, depressing, dark and took me the longest time to read it.
