Prossime Uscite ~ Aspettando Febbraio 2017

Buon martedì, miei cari Petrichors!

Oggi saltiamo l’ipotetica “scaletta” del blog per catapultarci nelle uscite del prossimo mese.

Anche questo Febbraio ci attendono tante novità e romanzi da non perdere sia in lingua inglese che italiana, soprattutto di queste ultime vi ho già iniziato a parlare con il Blog Tour su Demelza di Winston Graham. Qui sotto trovate, come sempre, una carrellata di nuove uscite per tutti i gusti. Buona lettura!

 

“Demelza” di Winston Graham

(La Saga di Poldark #2)

In uscita il 2 FEBBRAIO. 

Casa Editrice: Sonzogno

Genere: Storico

Lingua: Italiano
Goodreads – Amazon

Cornovaglia, 1788-1790. Le nozze tra Ross, gentiluomo dal carattere forte, avverso alle convenzioni sociali, e Demelza, bella, brillante, ma figlia di un povero minatore, hanno scandalizzato l’alta società locale, che non approva il matrimonio di un nobile con una plebea. E così Demelza, pur facendo il possibile per assumere le maniere di una signora raffinata, fatica a conciliare il mondo da cui proviene con quello cui ora appartiene, e si sente umiliata dai modi altezzosi di chi la circonda. Questo non le impedisce però di stare al fianco di Ross, che si trova ad affrontare la grave crisi economica in cui versa il distretto: l’industria del rame è infatti sull’orlo del collasso a causa di banchieri senza scrupoli, come lo spietato George Warleggan. Mentre dalla Francia soffiano i venti della rivoluzione e il malcontento dei minatori, ridotti alla fame, sembra pronto a esplodere, Ross decide di sfidare i potenti nel tentativo di riportare giustizia e prosperità nella terra che ama, nonostante il rischio di perdere tutto ciò che ha costruito. Tra sfarzosi eventi mondani, passioni maledette e amori ritrovati, tempeste di feroce bellezza e naufragi che sembrano benedizioni per la povera gente, Ross e Demelza tornano con il secondo episodio della saga di Poldark, vero e proprio classico tra i romanzi storici.

Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.

Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding.

From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence and the John Cleaver series, comes the second book in a dark, pulse-pounding sci-fi-noir series set in 2050 Los Angeles.

Overworld. It’s more than just the world’s most popular e-sport—for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it’s a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the internet and four friends you trust with your life, anything is possible.

Marisa Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives word that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, this could mean anything—a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems—rife with corruption, infighting, and danger—and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament. It soon becomes clear that, in this game, winning might be the only way to get out alive.

An epic, romantic, and action-packed fantasy inspired by the tale of Rumpelstiltskin, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from C. J.

Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns meets The Queen of the Tearling in this thrilling fantasy standalone about one girl’s unexpected rise to power.

Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.

As she is lowered into the dragon’s chamber, she assumes her life is over until Golmarr, the young prince she just spurned, follows her with the hopes of being her hero and slaying the dragon. But the dragon has a different plan… .

If the dragon wins, it will be freed from the spell that has bound it to the cave for centuries. If Sorrow or Golmarr vanquish the dragon, the victor will gain its treasure and escape the cave beneath the mountain. But what exactly is the dragon hiding?
