After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as "normal" as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he's forbidden to see her again. But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, "normal" simply isn't to be. For Ethan's nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan's and Keirran's fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan's next choice may decide the fate of them all.

Kami Garcia - Margaret Stohl - Beautiful Creatures
There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere. At least, that's what I thought. Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong. There was a curse. There was a girl. And in the end, there was a grave. Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps, and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them. In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

P. C. Cast - Kristin Cast - Megkísértve
Zoey azt hitte, sikerült végleg megszabadulnia Kalonától és Neferettől, de tévedett. Bár Tulsában béke honol, ellenségei már egy lépéssel előtte járnak: Nüx Tanácsa elé járulnak, hogy a vámpírvilág vezetőit is maguk mellé állítsák. Így hát Zoey-nak és barátainak nem marad más választásuk - nekik is Velencébe kell utazniuk, hogy megakadályozzák a katasztrófát. Stevie Rae azonban nem tart velük, Tulsában marad, hogy megpróbálja rendezni sötét titkait, melyek lassan felemésztik… És akkor megszólalt. - Ó, Istennő, ne! Ne tedd ezt velem! Kalona hangja volt az, és ahogy meghallottam, legszívesebben üvöltve próbáltam volna kiszabadítani magam az öleléséből, de nem voltam ura a testemnek, és a szavak, amelyek kibuktak a számon, nem az én szavaim voltak. - Cssss, ne ess kétségbe. Itt vagyok veled, szerelmem. - Csapdába ejtettél! - Vádló hangja ellenére még erősebben szorított magához, és felismertem a hideg szenvedélyt halhatatlan ölelésében. - Megmentettelek - válaszoltam idegen hangon? és a testem egyre jobban hozzásimult. - Te nem erre a világra születtél. Ezért voltál itt olyan boldogtalan, olyan mohó. - Nem volt más választásom! A halandók ezt nem érthetik. Átöleltem a nyakát. Ujjaim beletúrtak puha, sűrű hajába. - Én megértelek. Nyugodj meg, és maradj itt velem. Felejtsd el ezt a szomorú nyughatatlanságot. Majd én megvigasztallak. Még mielőtt megszólalt volna, éreztem, hogy beletörődik a helyzetbe. - Igen - suttogta Kalona. - Beléd temetem szomorúságomat, és végre megszabadulok ettő? az emésztő vágyakozástól. - Igen, szerelmem, hitvesem, harcosom… igen… Ez volt az a pillanat, amikor teljesen azonosultam A-yával. Nem tudtam volna megmondani, hol ér véget az ő vágya, és hol kezdődik az én lelkem. Ha volt is választásom, nem akartam élni vele. Csak annyit tudtam, hogy végre ott vagyok, ahol lennem kell - Kalona karjában. Az Éjszaka Háza-sorozat hatodik kötete új, ismeretlen tájakra csábít, hol olyan kalandok várnak rád, melyekre álmodban sem gondoltál volna!

Cassandra Clare - The Shadowhunters' Codex
The Clave is pleased to announce the newest edition of the Nephilim’s oldest and most famous training manual: the Shadowhunter’s Codex. Since the thirteenth century, the Codex has been the young Shadowhunter’s best friend. When you’re being swarmed by demons it can be easy to forget the finer points of obscure demon languages or the fastest way to stop an attack of Raum demons. With the Codex by your side, you never have to worry. Now in its twenty-seventh edition, the Codex covers it all: the history and the laws of our world; how to identify, interact with, and if necessary, kill that world’s many colorful denizens; which end of the stele is the end you write with. No more will your attempt to fight off rogue vampires and warlocks be slowed by the need to answer endless questions from your new recruits: What is a Pyxis? Why don’t we use guns? If I can’t see a warlock’s mark, is there a polite way to ask him where it is? Where do we get all our holy water? Geography, History, Magic, and Zoology textbook all rolled into one, the Codex is here to help new Shadowhunters navigate the beautiful, often brutal world that we inhabit. Do not let it be said that the Clave is outdated or, as the younger Shadowhunters say, “uncool”: this new edition of the Codex will be available not only in the usual magically-sealed demonskin binding, but also in a smart, modern edition using all of today’s most exciting printing techniques, including such new features as a sturdy clothbound cover, a protective dust jacket, and information about title, author, publisher, and so on conveniently available right on the cover. You’ll be pleased to know that it fits neatly into most satchels, and unlike previous editions, it rarely sets off alarm wards. The old woodcuts and engravings have been replaced as well: instead, you’ll find lavish modern illustrations by some of the brightest luminaries of the fantastic. Creatures, weapons, people, and places have been carefully and accurately rendered by the likes of Rebecca Guay, Charles Vess, Jim Nelson, Theo Black, Elisabeth Alba, and Cassandra Jean. Chapters are beautifully introduced by the drawings of Michael Kaluta, and along with our condensation of the classic 2,450-page tome, A History of the Nephilim, you will find a selection of the best of the lovely illustrations of that volume by John Dollar. This edition of the Codex will be available in Institute libraries and what mundanes sometimes call “book stores” in [DATE], 2013. [CLARY ADDS: Hey. Um, Clary Fray here. Hi. Look, the Codex is full of useful information — Simon says it’s like a game manual for being a Shadowhunter — and that’s great. But it’s a little stuffy, for one thing, and for another you probably know by now that the Clave’s versions of things aren’t...always the most accurate. And then there’s all the stuff that’s been going on lately -- it’s way out of date now! So this is not just the Codex -- this is my copy of the Codex. I’ve made a ton of notes and tried to fix it when things seem not exactly right in the official story. Jace added some of his notes too. There’s also a whole bunch of my drawings and sketches in there...hope you like them! Oh, also, it is maybe possible that a certain vampire friend of mine may have taken my Codex and made his own comments in there too. Just ignore him, he only wants attention.]
Julie Kagawa - The Iron King - Vaskirály
A nevem Meghan Chase. Kevesebb, mint 24 óra múlva betöltöm a 16-ot. Számtalan történetet, dalt és költeményt írtak erről a csodálatos életkorról, amikor egy lány rátalál az igaz szerelemre, a csillagok csakis neki ragyognak, és a szőke herceg elgaloppozik vele a naplementébe. Nem hiszem, hogy velem is így fog történni. Meghan Chase-re titkokkal teli sors vár – olyan, amit még kigondolni sem tudott volna. Valami furcsa mindig volt Meghan életében; már hatéves kora óta, amikor édesapja eltűnt a szeme elől. Az iskolában sem tudott teljesen beilleszkedni... és otthon sem. Amikor egy gyanús idegen kezdi távolról figyelni, és tréfakedvelő legjobb barátja egyszeriben a védelmezőjévé válik, Meghan érzi, hogy minden meg fog változni, amit csak ismer. De a valóságot álmában sem tudta volna elképzelni – hogy ő egy mesebeli Tündérkirály lánya, és egyben tehetetlen báb egy öldöklő háborúban. De idővel kiderül, mire hajlandó azért, hogy megmentsen valakit, akit szeret, vagy hogy útját állja egy rejtelmes gonosznak, akivel egyetlen tündér sem mer szembenézni... és hogy megtalálja-e a szerelmet egy ifjú herceggel, aki szívesebben látná őt holtan, semhogy közel engedje jeges szívéhez.
