Fantasy ajánló

Ma öt olyan angol nyelvű, fantasy könyvet hoztunk, amelyek GABO-s és Cicerós szerzők tollából származnak. Ha szerettétek a magyarul is megjelent könyveiket, akkor nézelődjetek, és hátha ezek közül is megtetszik valamelyik!

whichwood-cover1.) Whichwood

A new adventure about a girl who is fated to wash the bodies of the dead in this companion to Furthermore.

Our story begins on a frosty night…

Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

Az írónő a Ne érints sorozatával lett híres kis hazánkban, azonban a tavaly magyarul is megjelent Illaberekkel az ifjúsági / middle grade vizekre evezett. A Whichwood ugyanabban az univerzumban játszódik, mint a fentebb említett, azonban mivel ez inkább csak egy kiegészítő kötet, nem muszáj az Illaberekkel kezdeni.

368968982.) Spinning Silver

A ​fresh and imaginative retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale from the bestselling author of Uprooted, called „very enjoyable fantasy with the air of a modern classic” by The New York Times Book Review.

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders… but her father isn’t a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife’s dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty–until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers’ pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed–and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it’s worth–especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.

Naomi Novik once again creates a wonderfully rich, multilayered fantasty world that readers will want to return to again and again.

A Rengeteg írónőjének az új könyve idén július 10-én fog megjelenni. Ezúttal egy újrameséléssel próbálkozott meg az írónő, Rumpelstiltskin meséjét élhetjük át más formában.

284187643.) Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet

Maire is a baker with an extraordinary gift: she can infuse her treats with emotions and abilities, which are then passed on to those who eat them. She doesn’t know why she can do this and remembers nothing of who she is or where she came from.

When marauders raid her town, Maire is captured and sold to the eccentric Allemas, who enslaves her and demands that she produce sinister confections, including a witch’s gingerbread cottage, a living cookie boy, and size-altering cakes.

During her captivity, Maire is visited by Fyel, a ghostly being who is reluctant to reveal his connection to her. The more often they meet, the more her memories return, and she begins to piece together who and what she really is—as well as past mistakes that yield cosmic consequences.

From the author of The Paper Magician series comes a haunting and otherworldly tale of folly and consequence, forgiveness and redemption.

A papírmágus sorozat által ismert írónő stand-alone kötetének koncepciója borzasztóan érdekesnek hangzik. Maire, a főszereplő, egy pék, aki képes érzelmeket és képességeket belesütni a finomságaiba.

Dance of Thieves_FINAL 9.184.) Dance of Thieves

Dance ​of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson is a new novel in the New York Times-bestselling Remnant Chronicles universe, in which a reformed thief and the young leader of an outlaw dynasty lock wits in a battle that may cost them their lives—and their hearts. 
When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family who have always governed by their own rules. However, a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty’s resentment and anger. 
At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions.

Ha szerettétek a Fennmaradottak Krónikáit, akkor jó hírünk van! Augusztus 7-én fog megjelenni a Dance of Thieves, ami egy új sorozat kezdő kötete, és ráadásul ugyanabban a világban játszódik, mint az előbb említett trilógia.

342737125. The Overneath

An odd couple patrols a county full of mythological beasts and ornery locals. A familiar youngster from the world of The Last Unicorn is gifted in magic but terrible at spell-casting. A seemingly incorruptible judge meets his match in a mysterious thief who steals his heart. Two old friends discover that the Overneath goes anywhere, including locations better left unvisited.

Lyrical, witty, and insightful, The Overneath is Peter S. Beagle’s much-anticipated return to the short form. In these uniquely beautiful and wholly original tales, with new and uncollected work, Beagle once again proves himself a master of the imagination.

Sok-sok év eltelt, mióta Peter S. Beagle egy új könyvet adott ki, azonban tavaly szerencsére publikált – mondjuk nem regényt, hanem novelláskötetet. Az utolsó egyszarvú című varázslatos fantasy mű világából ismerős szereplők is visszatérnek. Aki azt a mesét szerette, adjon egy esélyt az új kötetnek is.
