Books around the World # 2

Buon mercoledì a tutti,
eccoci al secondo appuntamento con la rubrica Books around the World.
Anche questa settimana ho diverse uscite da farvi conoscere, quindi procedo immediatamente con la rubrica.


In Rhyannon Byrd's latest Bloodrunners romance, passion and secrets collide, and only their love will save two werewolves and their pack.

With his sharp gaze locked on the most magnificent female he'd ever seen, Wyatt Pallaton did his best to hold himself back. Of course, Elise Drake wasn't just any female. Fiery and cool, strong, yet at the same time achingly vulnerable, she'd turned his entire world on its head.
No matter how bloody difficult it proved to be, he was done letting her pretend he didn't exist. Done with letting her fight her own battles. Done driving himself slowly into this maddening state of frustrated desire. One way or another, things were about to change.
Come hell or high water, she was done running....


Think The Mentalist Pretty Little Liars meets--Jennifer Lynn Barnes' The Naturals is a gripping psychological thriller with killer appeal, a to-die-for romance, and the bones of a gritty and compelling new series.

Seventeen-year-old Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But, it's not a skill that she's ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they've begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie. 
What Cassie doesn't realize is that there's more at risk than a few unsolved homicides--especially when she's sent to live with a group of teens whose gifts are as unusual as her own. Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms close. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive.


New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice brilliantly conjures the shadowed terrors of the Louisiana bayou--in this intense new supernatural thriller

It's been a decade since the Delongpre family vanished near Bayou Rabineaux, and still no one can explain the events of that night. No one except Niquette Delongpre, the survivor who ran away and left behind her best friends, Ben and Anthem, to save them from her new found capacity for destruction...and who alone knows the source of her very bizarre--and deadly--abilities: an isolated strip of swampland called Elysium.
Ten years ago, construction workers dug into a well, that snaked down into the waters of the Louisiana swamp and stirred something that had been there for centuries--a parasite that perverts the mind and corrupts the body.
Niquette is living proof that things done can't be undone. But as Niquette, Ben, and Anthem uncover the truth of a parasite that has the potential to alter the future of humankind, Niquette uncovers the most chilling truths of all: someone else has been infected too. And unlike her, this man is not content to live in the shadows. He is intent to use his newfound powers for one reason only: revenge.


When you control minds, only your heart can be used against you.

Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders' fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown--a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash--Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira's boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers. Mindjack Trilogy (novels): Open Minds, Closed Hearts, Free Souls (now available)Mindjack Origins Collection: Mindjack novellas (Mind Games, The Handler, The Scribe),exclusive deleted scenes from Free Souls, flash fiction, and more

Ho preferito lasciare le trame in inglese, a differenza del primo episodio in cui ve le avevo tradotte...non mi sembrava di rendere giustizia riportandovele in italiano.
Allora qualcuno di voi ha adocchiato qualcosa di interessante? Fatemi sapere quale di queste ha stimolato la vostra curiosità, aspetto i vostri commenti. 
P.S. Non trovate che la cover di Closed Hearts sia stupenda?

  1. Qualcosa di interessante dici? Sono tutti assolutamente interessanti! Se dovessi sceglierne solo uno sarebbe Closed Hearts, ma mi ispirano tutti. ;-)

    1. Eh lo so! Io vorrei richiederli tutti ma poi finisce che non riesco mai a leggere tutto!


Lasciate un segno del vostro passaggio, sarò felice di rispondere ai vostri commenti!
