Link Amazon

Trama
In quanto figlia di un potente generale di un vasto impero che riduce in schiavitù i popoli conquistati, la diciassettenne Kestrel ha sempre goduto di una vita privilegiata. Ma adesso si trova davanti a una scelta difficile: arruolarsi nell’esercito oppure sposarsi. La ragazza, però, ha ben altre intenzioni... Nel giovane Arin, uno schiavo in vendita all’asta, Kestrel ha trovato uno spirito gentile e a lei affine. Gli occhi di lui, che sembrano sfidare tutto e tutti, l’hanno spinta a seguire il proprio istinto e a comprarlo senza pensare alle possibili conseguenze. E così, inaspettatamente, Kestrel si ritrova a dover nascondere l’amore che inizia a sentire per Arin, un sentimento che si intensifica giorno dopo giorno. Ma la ragazza non sa che anche il giovane schiavo nasconde un segreto e che per stare insieme i due amanti dovranno accettare di tradire la loro gente o altrimenti tradire sé stessi per rimanere fedeli al proprio popolo. Kestrel imparerà velocemente che il prezzo da pagare per l’uomo che ama è molto più alto di quello che avrebbe mai potuto immaginare…

Sinossi
Maddie doesn't believe in luck. She's all about hard work and planning ahead. But one night, on a whim, she buys a lottery ticket. And then, to her astonishment --

She wins!

In a flash, Maddie's life is unrecognizable. No more stressing about college scholarships. Suddenly, she's talking about renting a yacht. And being in the spotlight at school is fun... until rumors start flying, and random people ask her for loans. Now, Maddie isn't sure who she can trust.

Except for Seth Nguyen, her funny, charming coworker at the local zoo. Seth doesn't seem aware of Maddie's big news. And, for some reason, she doesn't want to tell him. But what will happen if he learns her secret?

DAUGHTER OF THE BURNING CITY

Link Amazon

Sinossi
Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear.

THE INTUITIVES
Autore: Erin Michelle Sky e Steven Brown | Editore: Trash Dogs Media llc | Genere: fantasy


Sinossi
In Egypt, an archaeological team discovers the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Seven years later, every public school student in America takes a strange new test, but only six are chosen to attend a summer program at the mysterious Institute for the Cultivation of Intuitive Cognition, where nothing is as it appears to be, including the students themselves.

Roman Jackson, 11—the lonely artist.
Sees things. Around people. Things he can never, ever tell.

Samantha Prescott, 16—the sarcastic nerd.
Isolated by a premonition even she doesn’t understand.

Daniel Walker, 17—the shy musician.
Hides his private thoughts in the soundtrack of his mind.

Kaitlyn Wright, 15—the bubbly engineer.
Can fix anything, except the one thing that matters most.

Mackenzie Gray, 17—the disciplined athlete.
Armors her deepest fears against a world she can’t control.

Ashton Hunt, 17—the frustrated gamer.
Hoping to turn pro, and a constant disappointment to his father.

But why is the U.S. government so interested in six outcasts? And what, exactly, is it teaching them to do? Now, they must band together to uncover the true purpose behind the institute—and the ancient secrets that lie hidden beneath its surface.

Before history catches up to them.
