April Genevieve Tucholke - Wink, ​Poppy, Midnight
Minden ​történetbe kell egy hős. És kell bele egy hitvány gonosztevő. És hogy még mi? Megfejtésre várok titkok... Wink egy vörös hajú, szeplős lány a szomszédból: senki sem ismeri egészen, a lénye csupa talány és rejtély. A szőke, ezüstszürke szemű Poppy a leggyönyörűbb és egyszersmind a legaljasabb és legkegyetlenebb lány a középiskolában: egy igazi manipulatív méhkirálynő. És itt van a harmadik, Midnight, egy édes, de bizonytalan fiú, aki nem tud választani kettejük közül. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Két lány. Egy fiú. És egy rémisztő, veszélyes erdő, ahol egyre több borzalmas esemény követi egymást. Mi történt valójában? Van, aki tudja. És van, aki hazudik.

April Genevieve Tucholke - Wink ​Poppy Midnight (angol)
The ​intrigue of The Virgin Suicides and the "supernatural or not" question of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime. Every story needs a hero. Every story needs a villain. Every story needs a secret. Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous. What really happened? Someone knows. Someone is lying. For fans of Holly Black, We Were Liars, and The Raven Boys, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and a whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.

April Genevieve Tucholke - Seven ​Endless Forests
In ​Seven Endless Forests, the gorgeous standalone companion to the critically acclaimed fantasy The Boneless Mercies, April Genevieve Tucholke spins a bold and blood-hungry retelling of the King Arthur legend that is perfect for fans of Naomi Novik, Garth Nix, and Laini Taylor. On the heels of a devastating plague, Torvi's sister, Morgunn is stolen from the family farm by Uther, a flame-loving Fremish wolf-priest who leads a pack of ragged, starving girls. Torvi leaves the only home she's ever known, and joins a shaven-skulled druid and a band of roaming Elsh artists known as the Butcher Bards. They set out on a quest to rescue Torvi's sister, and find a mythical sword. On their travels, Torvi and her companions will encounter magical night wilds and mystical Drakes who trade in young men. They will sing rowdy Elshland ballads in a tree-town tavern, and find a mysterious black tower in an Endless Forest. They will fight alongside famous Vorseland archers and barter with Fremish wizards. They will feast with rogue Jade Fell children in a Skal Mountain cave, and seek the help of a Pig Witch. They will face wild, dangerous magic that leads to love, joy, tragedy, and death. Torvi sets out to rescue a sister, but she may find it's merely the first step toward a life that is grander and more glorious than anything she could have imagined.

April Genevieve Tucholke - Between ​the Spark and the Burn
The ​conclusion to Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, this gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier is a must-read for fans of Beautiful Creatures and Anna Dressed in Blood. Freddie once told me that the Devil created all the fear in the world. But then, the Devil once told me that it's easier to forgive someone for scaring you than for making you cry. The problem with River West Redding was that he'd done both to me. The crooked-smiling liar River West Redding, who drove into Violet's life one summer day and shook her world to pieces, is gone. Violet and Neely, River's other brother, are left to worry—until they catch a two a.m. radio program about strange events in a distant mountain town. They take off in search of River but are always a step behind, finding instead frenzied towns, witch hunts, and a wind-whipped island with the thrum of something strange and dangerous just under the surface. It isn't long before Violet begins to wonder if Neely, the one Redding brother she thought trustworthy, has been hiding a secret of his own . . . Between the Spark and the Burn is the heart-pounding conclusion to the flavishly rendered, darkly romantic, and beautifully unsettling [Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea.]”—Melissa Marr

April Genevieve Tucholke - Between ​the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
You ​stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand… Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it. Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.

April Genevieve Tucholke - Fürchte ​nicht das tiefe blaue Meer
In ​Violet Whites verschlafenem Küstenort ist nicht viel los – bis River West in Violets Gästehaus einzieht. Plötzlich wird ein Phantom gesichtet, Kinder verschwinden und ein Mann bringt sich um. Hat River damit zu tun? Er weicht jeder Frage über seine Vergangenheit aus. Violets Großmutter hat sie vor dem Teufel gewarnt – aber dass er ein Junge sein könnte, der viel Kaffee trinkt, gerne in der Sonne schläft und Violet auf dem Friedhof so küsst, dass man zurückküssen möchte – das hat sie nicht gesagt. Während der Horror eskaliert, verliebt sich Violet so heftig, dass sie River nicht mehr widerstehen kann – und genau das ist seine Absicht…
