The heart-stopping conclusion to the internationally bestselling Engelsfors Trilogy
Praised by Lev Grossman as “stunning . . . and very, very wicked,” The Circle, Book One of the Engelsfors Trilogy, introduced six teenage girls with supernatural powers who became the Chosen Ones, destined to fight against the ultimate evil. By the end of the second book, Fire, only four girls remain – the last defense against the mysterious, demonic forces that have been plaguing Engelsfors.
The Chosen Ones have no chance to recover, and no choice but to rally together to try to prevent the apocalypse – even while their personal dramas threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, Ida may be dead, but she is by no means gone. Stuck between the living and the dead, she must find a way to aid her fellow Chosen Ones from beyond the grave.
The final installment of the Engelsfors Trilogy – an international sensation with rights sold in twenty-nine countries – The Key combines thrilling action and dark magic with all the passion and drama of teen life.

Only together can they survive. Engelsfors. A beautiful name for a scrubby little town in Sweden where six girls have just started high school. They have nothing in common -- except they are all hunted by an ancient evil. The autumn semester has just started when a student is found dead in one of the school toilet cubicles. Everyone suspects suicide. Everyone except those that know the truth. One night, when a mysterious red moon fills the sky, the girls meet in the park. They don't know why or how they were brought there but they learn that they need each other in order to survive. They are told that they are witches. An ancient prophecy states that they are The Chosen Ones. From this day on, high school is a matter of life and death. They must learn how to work together despite their differences and they have to master the forces that have awakened within them. Time is running out. Something is hunting them and if they don't find it and defeat it, it will kill them.

Boszorkányok pedig vannak Engelsfors apró, festői kis város Svédországban. Az itteni középiskola elsősei között van hat lány, akik különböznek a többiektől. Semmi közös nincs bennük, csupán az, hogy mindegyikükben természetfeletti erő lakozik. Épp hogy elkezdődött a tanév, amikor egy halott fiút találnak az iskola egyik mosdójában. Mindenki öngyilkosságra gyanakszik, kivéve a hat lányt. Egyedül ők sejtik az igazságot. Egyik éjjel, amikor a hold kísérteties vörös színre festi az eget, a lányok találkoznak a parkban. Maguk sem értik, mi vezette őket oda, csak azt tudják, szükségük van egymásra. Boszorkányok lettek. Egy ősi prófécia szerint kiválasztottak. A rejtélyes gyilkosság óta a gimiben már élet vagy halál a tét. És a lányoknak még sok mindent meg kell tanulniuk saját erejükről is. Pedig fogytán az idő, mert valami vadászik rájuk, és ha nem találják meg, nem pusztítják el az ismeretlent, akkor ők halnak meg... Kiállhatatlan szülők, iskolai gondok, barátság, szerelem, varázslat és halál tölti be az ifjúsági _Engelsfors trilógia_ első kötetének lapjait. A fiatal svéd szerzőpáros első közös könyve hihetetlen sikert aratott, és már huszonegy nyelven olvasható.

Mats Strandberg - Sara B. Elfgren - Kulcs
A Kör boszorkányaira egyre több megpróbáltatás vár. Van-e értelme, hogy megfogyatkozva tovább küzdjenek a világ megmentéséért? Maradt-e még esélyük a démonokkal szemben? Találnak-e új segítőket elvesztett barátaik helyett? Erőt ad-e vagy csak gyöngíti őket a szerelem? Vanessa, Anna-Karin, Linnéa és Minoo mind nehezebben cipelik a Kiválasztottak emberfeletti terheit. E világi és túlvilági ellenségeik állandó, halálos veszéllyel fenyegető jelenléte sokszor eltörpül a közöttük elmélyülő ellentétek, az önmagukkal megvívandó harcok félelmetes árnyaihoz képest. Akadnak olyanok is, akik szerint másnak kell az engelsforsi diáklányok helyébe lépnie, hogy teljesítse a lehetetlennek tűnő küldetést. Mert valakinek be kell zárnia a démonok világába vezető átjáró kapuját, hogy megakadályozza az apokalipszis eljövetelét. Mats Strandberg és Sara B.

Vajon mi az ára, hogy pont kerüljön a hátborzongató történet végére?

Emily Horner - A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend
For months, Cass Meyer has heard her best friend Julia, a wannabe Broadway composer, whispering about a top-secret project. Then Julia is killed in a sudden car accident, and while Cass is still reeling from her death, Julia’s boyfriend and her other drama friends make it their mission to bring to fruition the nearly-completed secret project: a musical about an orphaned ninja princess entitled _Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad_. Cass isn’t one of the drama people. She doesn’t feel at home with Julia’s drama friends, and she doesn’t see a place for her in the play. Things only get worse when she finds out that Heather Galloway, the girl who made her miserable all through middle school, has been cast as the ninja princess. Cass can’t take a summer of swallowing her pride and painting sets, so she decides to follow her original plan for a cross-country road trip with Julia. Even if she has a touring bicycle instead of a driver’s license, and even if Julia’s ashes are coming along in Tupperware. _Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad_ is a story about friendship. About love. About traveling a thousand miles just to find yourself. About making peace with the past, and making sense of it. And it’s a story about the bloodiest high school musical one quiet suburb has ever seen.
