Cassandra Clare - Sarah Rees Brennan - Maureen Johnson - Kelly Link - Robin Wasserman - Fantasmi ​del mercato delle ombre
Il ​Mercato delle Ombre è un luogo speciale, dove si possono incontrare fate, licantropi, stregoni e vampiri. Un luogo dove si vendono oggetti magici, si stringono patti oscuri e si sussurrano segreti che nessuno deve conoscere. Tra tutte le creature che qui si muovono, ce n'è una in particolare che, nell'arco di due secoli, lo ha visitato spesso. Si tratta di Fratello Zaccaria, che, come Fratello Silente, è il custode della legge e delle leggende dei Nephilim, ma che un tempo è stato uno Shadowhunter chiamato Jem Carstairs, e come tale ha vissuto un amore grande, quello per la strega Tessa Gray, l'unica donna della sua vita - di allora e per sempre. Seguendolo tra le pieghe di questo luogo magico, incontreremo insieme a lui personaggi iconici dell'universo Shadowhunters: da Anna Lightwood, alle prese con una storia d'amore impossibile, a Matthew Fairchild, consumato dal senso di colpa per le conseguenze irrimediabili di una sua azione, a Tessa Gray, costretta a operare sotto i bombardamenti nella città in cui vive. Il Mercato delle Ombre è un luogo spaventoso e affascinante al tempo stesso, dove ci si può nascondere facilmente, ma dove, se hai rinunciato al tuo cuore, nessuno può salvarti, nemmeno Fratello Zaccaria.

Maureen Johnson - Truly ​Devious
New ​York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson weaves a delicate tale of murder and mystery in the first book of a striking new series, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and E. Lockhart. Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place,” he said, “where learning is a game.” Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym “Truly, Devious.” It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history. True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder. The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.

The ​day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago. Soon "Rippermania" takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

Maureen Johnson - The ​Vanishing Stair
The ​Truly Devious case—an unsolved kidnapping and triple murder that rocked Ellingham Academy in 1936—has consumed Stevie for years. It’s the very reason she came to the academy. But then her classmate was murdered, and her parents quickly pull her out of school. For her safety, they say. She must move past this obsession with crime. Stevie’s willing to do anything to get back to Ellingham, be back with her friends, and solve the Truly Devious case. Even if it means making a deal with the despicable Senator Edward King. And when Stevie finally returns, she also returns to David: the guy she kissed, and the guy who lied about his identity—Edward King’s son. But larger issues are at play. Where did the murderer hide? What’s the meaning of the riddle Albert Ellingham left behind? And what, exactly, is at stake in the Truly Devious affair? The Ellingham case isn’t just a piece of history—it’s a live wire into the present.
