[IMM] In My Mailbox #23

IMM - avec copyright

Coucou les p’tits elfes !

Pour rappel, la rubrique In My Mailbox a été mise en place par Kristi du blog The Story Siren et reprise en France par Lire Ou Mourir. C’est un moyen de partager les livres reçus chaque semaine dans notre boîte aux lettres ainsi que les livres achetés ou empruntés à la bibliothèque.

La semaine dernière, trop absorbée par mon projet d’écriture (#ProjetB), j’ai complètement zappé de vous poster l’In My Mailbox de la semaine, alors qu’il contenait quelques jolies pépites! Je me rattrape donc en vous montrant les réceptions des deux dernières semaines.

Angor, de Franck Thilliez

Thilliez, Franck - Angor

Camille Thibault est gendarme dans le nord de la France. Depuis sa greffe du coeur, ses collègues s’inquiètent pour elle. Chaque nuit, elle fait des cauchemars ou une femme séquestrée l’appelle au secours. Un rêve tellement vrai, comme un souvenir… celui de son donneur ? Camille n’a plus qu’une obsession : retrouver son identité et découvrir quel drame il a vécu…
Au même moment, à une centaine de kilomètres de là, deux employés de l’Office National des Forêts constatent les dégâts des orages violents survenus en ce mois d’août. Dans une cavité laissée par un arbre déraciné, ils croient apercevoir une ombre. L’un d’eux s’approche. Deux yeux presque blancs, dépourvus d’iris, c’est tout ce qu’il aura le temps de voir avant qu’une main venue des entrailles de la terre ne lui agrippe les cheveux.
Lucie et Sharko sont en train de donner le biberon à leurs jumeaux quand Franck est appelé sur une nouvelle affaire : une femme, victime d’une longue séquestration. Presque aveugle, tant elle est restée dans le noir… sous un arbre. L’enquête prend des proportions inhabituelles lorsque Sharko s’aperçoit qu’à chacune de ses découvertes, il a été devancé par une jeune femme, gendarme dans le Nord…

Chalcedony Chronicles #1 – Carnelian, de B. Kristin McMichael – chronique à venir

McMichael, B. Kristin - Carnelian

Mari is a young woman headed off to college. She’s lived a typical and unremarkable life; until she becomes the object of desire of the hunky star quarterback who’s known for adding notches to his bedpost. Mari commits herself to resist him, but that’s not so easy when you’re stuck together on the campus of a tiny and remote liberal arts college. Eventually she begins to realize that maybe he isn’t who he seems, and that perhaps neither is she.

From a college campus in northern Minnesota to the sands of ancient Egypt, Carnelian begins an adventure, and a romance, that will cross the span of time and space.

Chalcedony Chronicles #2 – Chrysophrase, de B. Kristin McMichael – chronique à venir

McMichael, B. Kristin - Chalcedony Chronicles 2 - Chrysoprase

*****Ne lisez le résumé que si les spoilers ne vous dérangent pas!! *****

Mari’s return to the present was not exactly what she expected. As the goddess predicted, there are always consequences to going into the past. Now, with the help of her friend Ty, Mari must find a way to get her loved ones back. Unfortunately, it may require the assistance of an ex-boyfriend whom she never wished to see again. He just might be the key to learn how to time travel on her own, or he might have another motive. Mari is left to decide, can he be trusted to help?

Blue Eyes #1 – The Legend of the Blue Eyes, de B. Kristin McMichael

McMichael, B. Kristin - The Legend of the Blue Eyes (Blue Eyes trilogy #1)

Arianna Grace liked her boring, Midwestern, teenage life where she ignored the many unanswered questions of her childhood. Why were her parents dead? Why did she not have family? Where was she raised until she was five? When someone offers to explain it all, Arianna thinks she’s just getting answers. Instead, she is thrown into a world of night humans who drink blood.

On Arianna’s sixteenth birthday, her world is thrown upside down when she changes into a vampire. Night humans, or demons, as some call them, live in normal society. Learning all of the new rules of a world she didn’t know existed might be hard enough, but it’s further complicated by two former-friends that now want to help her take her role as the successor to her grandfather.

There is a war going on between the night humans. Sides have been taken and lines are not crossed. Four main clans of night humans are struggling for control of the night. Divided into two sides, clans Baku and Tengu have been at war for centuries with the clans Dearg-dul and Lycan. That is, until Arianna Grace finds out the truth; she’s the bridge of peace between the two sides. But not everyone wants peace. With the night humans divided, Arianna is now a pawn in the war between them. She must choose a side–her mother’s family or her father’s–and for once in her life, decide her own fate.
