Kiersten White - Paranormal
El ​romance paranormal nunca volverá a ser igual. En un mundo en que los paranormales se controlan, Evie siempre ha sentido una cierta tranquilidad al saber que ella es humana... hasta que descubre que no lo es. Evie no es como las demás heroínas humanas de los libros de romances paranormales, que suelen ser oscuras, tímidas, inseguras, meditabundas y no muy populares. Por el contrario, Evie viste a la moda, es una apasionada de las series de televisión para adolescentes y le encantaría ir a un instituto normal y corriente, ser popular y salir con chicos. Pero no puede. Porque la Agencia Internacional para la Contención de lo Paranormal descubrió que ella es la única humana que puede ver el aura de los seres paranormales. Así pues, distingue a los hombres lobo por sus ojos amarillos o a los vampiros por su carne putrefacta y seca aunque vayan disfrazados de inmortales muchachos seductores. Desde los ocho años Evie vive dedicada a la contención de criaturas malévolas, aunque muchas veces quisiera ser una chica normal como las que ve en las series de televisión. De pronto se ve involucrada en una profecía que predice el fin de su mundo y encuentra dos aliados en Lend, un chico que puede adoptar cualquier forma o cuerpo, y Reth, un hada masculino con el que ha salido en el pasado. Por supuesto, además de ser sus aliados en la lucha, el romance está siempre presente. Evie debe compaginar su adolescencia con sus responsabilidades paranormales y procurar salir con vida de todo esto.

Kiersten White - The ​Excalibur Curse
The ​gripping conclusion to the acclaimed Arthurian fantasy trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White finds Guinevere questioning everything—friends and enemies, good and evil, and, most of all, herself. While journeying north toward the Dark Queen, Guinevere falls into the hands of her enemies. Behind her are Lancelot, trapped on the other side of the magical barrier they created to protect Camelot, and Arthur, who has been led away from his kingdom, chasing after false promises. But the greatest danger isn’t what lies ahead of Guinevere—it’s what’s been buried inside her. Vowing to unravel the truth of her past with or without Merlin’s help, Guinevere joins forces with the sorceress Morgana and her son, Mordred—and faces the confusing, forbidden feelings she still harbors for him. When Guinevere makes an agonizing discovery about who she is and how she came to be, she finds herself with an impossible choice: fix a terrible crime, or help prevent war. Guinevere is determined to set things right, whatever the cost. To defeat a rising evil. To remake a kingdom. To undo the mistakes of the past…even if it means destroying herself. Guinevere has been a changeling, a witch, a queen—but what does it mean to be just a girl?

Kiersten White - The ​Guinevere Deception
"Fascinating. ​. . . Kiersten White has taken the best parts of the Arthurian legend and made them all her own."--Renée Ahdieh, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn series. A new fantasy series set in the world of Camelot that bestselling author Christina Lauren calls "brilliant," reimagining the Arthurian legend . . . where nothing is as magical and terrifying as a girl. Princess Guinevere has come to Camelot to wed a stranger: the charismatic King Arthur. With magic clawing at the kingdom's borders, the great wizard Merlin conjured a solution--send in Guinevere to be Arthur's wife . . . and his protector from those who want to see the young king's idyllic city fail. The catch? Guinevere's real name--and her true identity--is a secret. She is a changeling, a girl who has given up everything to protect Camelot. To keep Arthur safe, Guinevere must navigate a court in which the old--including Arthur's own family--demand things continue as they have been, and the new--those drawn by the dream of Camelot--fight for a better way to live. And always, in the green hearts of forests and the black depths of lakes, magic lies in wait to reclaim the land.

Because when your whole existence is a lie, how can you trust even yourself? *THE FIRST BOOK IN THE CAMELOT RISING TRILOGY* "A rare and enviable mix of impeccable writing, heart-stopping action, lush scenery, and complex, relatable characters . . . brilliant!" --New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren "Stunning. . . . will leave every reader hungry for more." --Somaiya Daud, author of the Mirage series

Kiersten White - Slayer ​- Vadász
Egy ​valami világos: Kiválasztottnak lenni könnyű, választani viszont nehéz. Nina és az ikertestvére, Artemisz közel sem hétköznapiak. De nem is lehetnek azok, hiszen a Figyelők Akadémiáján nőnek fel, ami kicsit más, mint egy megszokott bentlakásos iskola. A tiniket itt a Vadászok – a sötétség erői elleni harcra természetfeletti erővel megajándékozott lányok – vezetésére képzik. És bár az anyukája a Figyelők Tanácsának rangos tagja, Nina soha nem élte a Figyelők erőszakos életét. Ehelyett az ösztöneire hallgat, és az iskola medikusaként teremti meg a világát. Egészen addig a napig, amíg az élete örökre megváltozik. Buffynak, a híres (és hírhedt) Vadásznak hála, akit védve vesztette életét Nina apukája, nem elég, hogy Nina a legújabb kiválasztott, egyben az utolsó is. Pont. Miközben Nina a képességeit a Figyelőségre készülő Leóval fejleszti, bőven van, ami lefoglalja: egy szörnyviadal, egy démon, aki boldogságot eszik, egy árnyas alak, aki folyamatosan felbukkan az álmaiban… De Nina új erőit igazán akkor teszik próbára, amikor egymás után kerülnek elő a hullák, mert könnyen lehet, hogy egy szerette lesz a következő áldozat.

Kiersten White - Endlessly ​- Végtelenül
Vámpírok Vérfarkasok Tündérek Alakváltók Ugye ​nem túl merész kívánság, ha valaki hétköznapi életet szeretne élni? Evie számára mégis az: nemcsak a Nemzetközi Paranormális Ellenőrző Hivatal próbálja nagy erőkkel visszacsalogatni magához, a Sötét Tündérkirálynő is folytatja az emberkínzást, miközben pedig egy másik világból származó lények is váltig állítják, hogy Evie az egyedüli reményük a túlélésre. A paranormális világ léte a tét. Evie-nek pedig csak egy esélye maradt. Úgy tűnik, hogy Evie minden igyekezete ellenére sem tud megszabadulni hétköznapinak nem mondható múltjától. Hiába hiszi, hogy egy teljesen átlagos téli szünet vár rá, ha a házuk előtt egyszer csak egy nagy csapat paranormális lény bukkan fel, akik azt állítják, hogy valamilyen titokzatos veszedelemtől csak Evie tudja megóvni őket.

Kiersten White - Paranormalcy ​- Természetfölötti
Vámpírok. Látom, ​amit ti nem láttok. Vérfarkasok. Megtalálom, ami rátok vadászik. Tündérek. Megvédelek benneteket. Alakváltók. Most én sem tudlak megvédeni titeket. „A Paranormalcy engem is teljesen elcsábított. Evie-ért két szexi paranormális lény verseng és mindketten győznek: az egyikük Evie szívét, a másikuk viszont az enyémet nyerte meg.” (APRILYNNE PIKE, a Wings c. New York Times bestseller szerzője). „Pergő, mozgalmas történet, száguld, akár egy hullámvasút. Nem maradt hiányérzetem: vagány, szellemes, de helyenként félelmetes is. Egyszerűen imádom!” BECCA FITZPATRICK, a Csitt, csitt c. bestseller szerzője Hi, Evie vagyok és tulajdonképpen teljesen normális. Legalábbis mindig ezt hittem magamról, leszámítva, hogy a legjobb barátnőm sellő, a volt barátom pedig tündér. Annyit még hozzátennék az igazsághoz, hogy én vagyok az egyedüli a világon, aki felismerem a paranormális lényeket, akárhogy álcázzák is magukat. Ezért is dolgozom a Nemzetközi Paranormális Ellenőrző Hivatalnál. Ennyit akkor a normalitásról. De aztán bejött Lend a képbe. Iszonyú helyes srác, nagyon figyelmes, egyébként alakváltó. Felbolygatta az egész eddigi kis életemet, nem beszélve egy sötét jóslatról, amely egy az egyben rám illik. Pedig én egyáltalán nem vagyok gonosz, csak valami félreértés lehet az egész. Utána kell járnom: tudni akarom végre, hogy ki is vagyok valójában, de a legfontosabb: Nem akarom Lendet elveszíteni!

Milyen ​lett volna Drakula, ha nőnek születik? Egy hercegnőtől senki nem vár kíméletlenséget, Lada Dracul mégis ezt nyújtja. A lányt szelíd természetű öccsével együtt elszakították szülőföldjétől, Havasalföldtől, apjuk elhagyta őket, így a török szultán udvarában nevelkedve megtanulja, hogy a túlélés záloga a kíméletlenség. Öccsével, Raduval együtt játékszerek csupán egy gonosz játszmában, és egy láthatatlan kard függ egy hajszálon a fejük felett. Származásuk különlegessé teszi őket, de emiatt célpontul is szolgálnak. Lada gyűlöli a törököket, és várja a napot, amikor bosszút állhat rajtuk – amint visszatérhet Havasalföldre és megszerezheti a trónt, ami megilleti. Radu csak egy biztonságos helyre vágyik. Amikor találkoznak Mehmeddel, a szultán dacos és magányos fiával, Radu úgy érzi, személyében hű barátra talált, Lada pedig benne látja azt a fiút, aki érdemes az ő szenvedélyes érzelmeire. De Mehmed annak a birodalomnak a trónörököse, ami ellen Lada harcot esküdött, és amit Radu már az otthonának tekint. Vajon mi lesz így a sorsuk? Vajon mennyit bír ki a szerelem és a hűség fonala? Fedezd fel!

Kiersten White - Acum ​mă înalț
NU ​ARE ALIAȚI, NU ARE TRON. TOT CE ARE E CEEA CE A AVUT ÎNTOTDEAUNA: PE EA ÎNSĂȘI. După eșecul de a pune mâna pe tronul Valahiei, Lada Drăculea pornește să pedepsească pe oricine îndrăznește să i se pună de-a curmezișul în drumul ei presărat cu sânge. Plină de o furie arzătoare, străbate țara, însoțită de oamenii ei. Dar forța brută nu îi aduce Ladei ceea ce își dorește. Iar gândul la Mehmed, pe care îl poartă în adâncul inimii ei, continuă să o tulbure. Ceea ce îi trebuie Ladei sunt subtilitatea și priceperea fratelui ei Radu. Dar Mehmed l-a trimis la Constantinopol, căci dorește controlul asupra orașului, iar Radu a căpătat însărcinarea nedorită de spion dublu în spatele liniilor inamice. Pentru prima dată în viață, Radu refuză rugămințile neașteptate ale Ladei pentru ajutor. Împărțit între lealitatea față de credință, de otomani și de Mehmed, el știe că nu îi datorează nimic Ladei. Dacă ea moare, el nu și-o va ierta niciodată – dar dacă el nu izbândește în Constantinopol, oare Mehmed îl va ierta vreodată? În vreme ce națiunile se prăbușesc în jurul lor, frații Drăculea trebuie să ia o hotărâre: ce vor sacrifica pentru a-și împlini destinul?

Kiersten White - Io ​sono buio
Una ​principessa non dovrebbe essere brutale. Ma Lada, figlia di Vlad Dracul, è diversa da ogni altra: affamata di potere fin da piccola, preferisce la lotta e i coltelli alle bambole. L’esatto contrario del fratello Radu, dolce, bellissimo e delicato come un bocciolo di rosa. Quando i due vengono lasciati in ostaggio dal padre, ancora bambini, al sultano dell’Impero Ottomano – prigionieri di un sovrano crudele e sottomessi a una cultura completamente diversa dalla propria – Lada inizia a progettare la sua spietata vendetta. Mentre la ragazza si prepara a combattere, il figlio del sultano Mehmed si mette tra lei e il fratello, spingendoli a diventare rivali. E in questo triangolo avvelenato forze potenti tendono gli animi: desideri di riscatto, gelosie tremende e un’ambizione sfrenata. Avvolta in un vortice di passioni turbinose, Lada si troverà di fronte alla scelta più difficile: portare a termine il suo piano o arrendersi all’unico nemico che forse non è in grado di sconfiggere, l’amore.
