Passenger (Passenger, #1)
Passenger (Passenger #1) - Alexandra Bracken

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an  world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever.

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)
Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1) - Susan Dennard 

 On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

Mina tankar

Två otroligt efterlängtade böcker släpps den här veckan, nämligen Passenger och Truthwitch. Är även väldigt nyfiken på de två Red Queen-novellerna, Steel Scars och Queen Song, som finns samlade i Cruel Crown. Den svenska ungdomsromanen Gudarna låter intressant, så den hamnar också på önskelistan.

  1. Passenger och Truthwitch är jag riktigt nyfiken på! Hoppas de är grymma! :)

    Cruel Crown består av de två novellerna Steel Scars och Queen Song. ;)

    1. Haha, ja, så ska det såklart vara! Tyckte väl att jag hade hört något om en novell som skulle heta Queen Song. Blev helt förvirrad när jag hittade Steel Scars och Cruel Crown, men ingen Queen Song. Tack för att du uppmärksammade det! :) ;)
