Mit Deinem Letzten Atemzug by Mary Higgins Clark & Alafair Burke

Tuesday, April 30, 2019
Let me be straight with you. Every Breath You Take was disappointing. At least for me. This is not the MHC I know and love. It hurts to say it, but this is one of the few books written by her, I can´t give anything but an average rating.

A bombastic gala evening in Manhattan ends in disaster. Virginia Wakeling an extremely wealthy widow and a generous patron of the arts falls to the death from the roof of the Metropolitan Museum. Was it murder? Urgently suspicious: her over twenty years younger lover Ivan. But as the police turn it around, they find no evidence against him. Therefore, Laurie Moran is using her TV program “Under Suspicion” to clear the case. She begins to research in the circle of the super-rich family - and soon encounters dark secrets. (a personal translation of the blurb on the dust cover/German edition by ©Vi at Inkvotary).

Thoughts

Sad, but this was almost a boring read. And after a few chapters, I couldn´t get rid of the feeling that I´ve read that story already.

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

Friday, April 12, 2019
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.
