Jessica Day George könyvei a rukkolán


Jessica Day George - Üveg ​hercegnő
Az ​egyik átok… a másikhoz vezet. Miután hosszú évekig átok kényszerítette, hogy minden éjszaka táncra perdüljön, Pipacs hercegnő esküvel megfogadta, hogy soha többé nem húz tánccipellőt a lábára. Éppen ezért csupán vonakodva vállalkozik arra, hogy részt vesz a királyi csereprogramban, amit édesapja a szomszédos országok uralkodóival együtt ötlött ki. Először nem is tűnik olyan rossznak az élet a távoli Bretonban, főleg mivel felbukkan egy jóképű herceg, aki a barátságát kínálja… sőt talán még többet is. Ám egy Eleonora nevű szegény szolgálólány is megjelenik a színen, és szemet vet a hercegre. Vajon melyik lány fogja elnyerni a szívét? És vajon ki áll a káprázatos báliruhák és cipellők mögött, amikben a nincstelen Eleonora parádézik a bálokon? Csak Pipacs hercegnő lát át a mágián, ami a királyság összes többi lakóját bűvöletben tartja. Mivel egy átkot már sikerült legyőznie, ő a legmegfelelőbb arra, hogy egy másikkal is megbirkózzon.

When ​Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor's twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it's not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse. The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.

Jessica Day George - Sun ​and Moon, Ice and Snow
Blessed—or ​cursed—with an ability to understand animals, the Lass (as she’s known to her family) has always been an oddball. And when an isbjorn (polar bear) seeks her out, and promises that her family will become rich if only the Lass will accompany him to his castle, she doesn’t hesitate. But the bear is not what he seems, nor is his castle, which is made of ice and inhabited by a silent staff of servents. Only a grueling journey on the backs of the four winds will reveal the truth: the bear is really a prince who’s been enchanted by a troll queen, and the Lass must come up with a way to free him before he’s forced to marry a troll princess.

Jessica Day George - Tuesdays ​at the Castle
Tuesdays ​at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing.

This delightful book from a fan- and bookseller-favorite kicks off a brand-new series sure to become a modern classic.

Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.

Jessica Day George - Dragon ​Slippers
Poor ​Creel. She can't believe her aunt wants to sacrifice her to the local dragon. It's a ploy to lure a heroic knight so that he will fight the dragon, marry Creel out of chivalrous obligation, and lift the entire family out of poverty. Creel isn't worried. After all, nobody has seen a dragon in centuries. But when the beast actually appears, Creel not only bargains with him for her life, she also ends up with a rare bit of treasure from his hoard, not gold or jewels, but a pair of simple blue slippers-or so she thinks. It's not until later that Creel learns a shocking truth: She possesses not just any pair of shoes, but ones that could be used to save her kingdom, which is on the verge of war, or destroy it.

Jessica Day George - Princess ​of the Midnight Ball
Galen ​is a young soldier returning from war; Rose is one of twelve princesses condemned to dance each night for the King Under Stone. Together Galen and Rose will search for a way to break the curse that forces the princesses to dance at the midnight balls. All they need is one invisibility cloak, a black wool chain knit with enchanted silver needles, and that most critical ingredient of all—true love—to conquer their foes in the dark halls below. But malevolent forces are working against them above ground as well, and as cruel as the King Under Stone has seemed, his wrath is mere irritation compared to the evil that awaits Galen and Rose in the brighter world above. Captivating from start to finish, Jessica Day George’s take on the Grimms’ tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses demonstrates yet again her mastery at spinning something entirely fresh out of a story you thought you knew.

Jessica Day George - Éjféli ​bál
Rose ​hercegnő a legidősebb tizenkét lánytestvér közül, akik arra kárhoztattak, hogy a gonosz Kőbezárt király palotájában, mélyen a föld alatt táncoljanak minden éjjel. Születésüktől kezdve átok ül rajtuk, és csak a halál adhatja vissza a szabadságukat. Rose azonban találkozik Galennel, egy fiatal, katonából lett kertésszel, aki nem veti meg a kalandot, és épp olyan elszánt, akárcsak Rose, és a szabadság egyszeriben nem is tűnik olyan elérhetetlennek. Hogy legyőzzék a királyt és sötét udvartartását, szükségük lesz egy láthatatlanná tévő köpenyre, egy fekete gyapjúláncra, melyet bűvös ezüst kötőtűkkel kötöttek, és mind közül a legkritikusabb hozzávalóra – az igaz szerelemre. A Széttáncolt cipellők című mese újrafeldolgozásával Jessica Day George megint megmutatja, milyen mesterien alkot valami teljesen újat egy történetből, amelyről csak hittük, hogy ismerjük.
