Un tempo i maji, dalla pelle d'ebano e i capelli candidi, erano una stirpe venerata nelle lussureggianti terre di orïsha. Ma non appena il loro legame con gli dei si spezzò e la magia scomparve, lo spietato re saran ne approfittò per trucidarli. Zélie, che non dimentica la notte in cui vide le guardie di palazzo impiccare sua madre a un albero del giardino, ora sente giunto il momento di rivendicare l'eredità degli antenati. Al suo fianco c'è il fratello tzain, pronto a tutto pur di proteggerla, e quando la loro strada incrocia quella dei figli del re si produce una strana alchimia tra loro. Ha inizio così un viaggio epico per cercare di riconquistare la magia, attraverso una terra stupefacente e pericolosa, dove si aggirano le leopardere delle nevi e dove gli spiriti vendicatori sono in agguato nell'acqua. Un'esperienza umana che non risparmia nessuno, in un turbine di amore e tradimento, violenza e coraggio. Nella speranza di ridare voce a un popolo che era stato messo a tacere.

Che diciassette anni sia un’età meravigliosa lo dice solo chi li ha passati da un pezzo. Lo sa bene Fanny Funke che nella sua vita improvvisamente non ha trovato più niente che andasse per il verso giusto: amici, genitori, scuola… Al punto da decidere di mollare tutto e di andare a fare uno stage in un albergo. Di sicuro però non sapeva dove sarebbe finita nel luogo più sperduto delle Alpi svizzere in un Grand Hotel indubbiamente suggestivo ma chiaramente in rovina e con una clientela a dir poco variegata, fra oligarchi russi, industriali americani, scrittori di gialli, attrici, ex atlete olimpioniche e, per fortuna, almeno un paio di bei ragazzi. E dove, in qualità ultima arrivata, le tocca subire le angherie di alcune colleghe, le pretese tiranniche del proprietario e l’irritante comportamento dei bambini ai quali deve fare da babysitter. Ma quella che minaccia di diventare una faticosissima routine, si tramuta ben presto in una straordinaria avventura, quando l’atmosfera festosa dell’hotel viene stravolta da un tentato rapimento, che farà capire a Fanny di chi può veramente fidarsi e che cosa cerca veramente nella vita…

In the near-future United States, a one-child policy is ruthlessly enforced. Everyone follows the Rule of One. But Ava Goodwin, daughter of the head of the Texas Family Planning Division, has a secret—one her mother died to keep and her father has helped to hide for her entire life.
She has an identical twin sister, Mira.
For eighteen years Ava and Mira have lived as one, trading places day after day, maintaining an interchangeable existence down to the most telling detail. But when their charade is exposed, their worst nightmare begins. Now they must leave behind the father they love and fight for their lives.
Branded as traitors, hunted as fugitives, and pushed to discover just how far they’ll go in order to stay alive, Ava and Mira rush headlong into a terrifying unknown.

Trama del primo volume della serie
The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart.

With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime.

Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose the only lives they’ve ever known…but if they succeed, they could be more powerful than anyone ever bargained for.
