Aujourd’hui je reviens avec mon haul livres du mois d’août 🙂
Seven years in darkness / Les nuits de 7 ans
Je vais mettre uniquement le début du synopsis en anglais parce que le synopsis français révèle plein de choses et pareil pour la 2eme partie du synopsis anglais !
« A young girl is found dead in Seryong Lake, a reservoir in a remote South Korean village. The police immediately begin their investigation.
At the same time, three men – Yongje, the girl’s father, and two security guards at the nearby dam, each of whom has something to hide about the night of her death – find themselves in an elaborate game of cat and mouse as they race to uncover what happened to her, without revealing their own closely guarded secrets. »
Michael J Sullivan
« After more than five hundred years of exile, the heir to the empyre is wary about his sudden reassignment to active duty on the Goblin War’s front lines. His assignment to rescue an outpost leads to a dead-end canyon deep inside enemy territory, and his suspicion turns to dread when he discovers the stronghold does not exist. But whoever went to the trouble of planning his death to look like a casualty of war did not know he would be assigned to the Seventh Sikaria Auxiliary Squadron. In the depths of an unforgiving jungle, a legend is about to be born, and the world of Elan will never be the same.
From Michael J. Sullivan, the New York Times, USA Today, and Washington Post bestselling author, a new adventure begins with the first book in The Rise and Fall trilogy. Although this series is set in the same world as the Riyria novels and the Legends of the First Empire books, it is a standalone tale. As such, no prior knowledge of the other works is required to enjoy this tale to its fullest. »
A dance with the fae prince
« She knew her hand in marriage would be sold. She had no idea a fae prince was the buyer.
Katria swore she’d never fall in love. She’s seen what « love » means through the cruelty of her family. So when she’s married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she’s leaving. Feelings are off the table.
But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.
As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.
Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidently pilfered the magic of ancient kings – magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne – and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.
The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel? »
The man who died twice / Le murder club du jeudi tome 2
Sortie en anglais le: 16 septembre 2021
Synopsis du tome 1:
« Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim et Ron frisent peut-être les quatre-vingts ans, mais ils en ont encore sous le capot. Leur passe-temps favori :
s’atteler, tous les jeudis, à de vieilles affaires de meurtre, pour en découvrir le fin mot là où la police a échoué. Jusqu’à ce que la nouvelle
leur parvienne : Tony Curran, l’associé du directeur de leur village de retraite, vient d’être retrouvé assassiné dans sa cuisine.
Ni une ni deux, Elizabeth convoque ses trois acolytes et lance le Murder Club sur la piste du tueur, toutes cannes dehors. Quand il s’agit de tromper l’ennui et de doubler la police, il ne faut jamais sous-estimer les personnes âgées. »
Voilà pour mon petit haul livres d’août !
