Rosamund Hodge - Kegyetlen ​szépség
Leonidas ​lányát nyolc éven át képezték arra, hogy megölje a zsarnokot, megmentve ezzel a Királyságot, bár feláldozva saját életét. De egy dologra nem készítették fel: arra, hogy mit tegyen, ha végzetes szerelembe esne. “Imádtam ezt a felemelően sötét és káprázatosan szenvedélyes történetet – alig várom, hogy megjelenjen Hodge következő regénye!” - Sarah J. Maas az _Üvegtrón_-sorozat szerzője “Teljesen magával ragadott!” - Alex Flinn, a _Beastly – A szörnyszívű_ írója Nüxet gyerekkorától kezdve arra képzik, hogy végezzen a Királyság zsarnok uralkodójával, a félelmetes és halhatatlan démonnal. De amikor tizenhét évesen beköltözik a város fölé magasodó kastélyba, rájön, hogy semmi sem olyan, mint amilyennek képzelte: főképp nem a vonzó és szemtelenül szellemes férje. Nüx tudja, hogy mi a kötelessége, és hogy bármi áron meg kell mentenie a népét, de lassan be kell ismernie, hogy menthetetlenül beleszeretett az esküdt ellenségébe… Vajon ez elég indok arra, hogy feladja a küldetését, és átadja magát ennek a szörnyetegnek? Ebben a varázslatosan megírt történetben a _Szépség és a szörnyeteg_ tündérmesei bája találkozik az _Üvegtrón_-sorozat dühös szenvedélyével. A szerző, az amerikai Rosamund Hodge az ókori mítoszok, a középkori angol történetek és a dark fantasyk megszállottja, jelenleg Seattle-ben él hét macskájával és a plüssszörnyeivel.

Rosamund Hodge - Gilded ​Ashes
A ​romantic and fantastical reimagining of the classic Cinderella tale, Gilded Ashes is a novella by Rosamund Hodge set in the same world as the author's debut novel, Cruel Beauty. Orphan Maia doesn't see the point of love when it only brings pain: Her dying mother made a bargain with the evil, all-powerful ruler of their world that anyone who hurt her beloved daughter would be punished; her new stepmother went mad with grief when Maia's father died; and her stepsisters are desperate for their mother's approval, yet she always spurns them. And though her family has turned her into a despised servant, Maia must always pretend to be happy, or else they'll all be struck dead by the curse. Anax, heir to the Duke of Sardis, doesn't believe in love either—not since he discovered that his childhood sweetheart was only using him for his noble title. What's the point of pretending to fall in love with a girl just so she'll pretend to fall in love with him back? But when his father invites all the suitable girls in the kingdom to a masked ball, Anax must finally give in and select a wife. As fate would have it, the preparations for the masquerade bring him Maia, who was asked by her eldest stepsister to deliver letters to Anax. Despite a prickly first encounter, he is charmed and intrigued by this mysterious girl who doesn't believe in love. Anax can't help wishing to see her again—and when he does, he can't help falling in love with her. Against her will, Maia starts to fall in love with him too. But how can she be with him when every moment his life is in danger from her mother's deadly bargain?

Rosamund Hodge - Belleza ​Cruel
Based ​on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny. Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him. With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people. But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle—a shifting maze of magical rooms—enthralls her. As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.
