Elle Cosimano - Seasons ​of the Storm
For ​fans of Maggie Stiefvater and Laini Taylor, a perfect storm lies ahead in this riveting fantasy duology opener from award-winning author Elle Cosimano. One cold, crisp night, Jack Sommers was faced with a choice—live forever according to the ancient, magical rules of Gaia, or die. Jack chose to live, and in exchange, he became a Winter—an immortal physical embodiment of the season on Earth. Every year, he must hunt the Season who comes before him. Summer kills Spring. Autumn kills Summer. Winter kills Autumn. And Spring kills Winter. Jack and Fleur, a Winter and a Spring, fall for each other against all odds. To be together, they’ll have to escape the cycle that’s been forcing them apart. But their creator won’t let them go without a fight.

Elle Cosimano - Seasons ​of Chaos
Perfect ​for fans of Holly Black and Victoria Schwab, this is the stunning conclusion to a lush, high-stakes fantasy duology, the first book of which New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Armentrout called “flawless and addictive.” As immortal Seasons, Jack and Fleur wielded powerful magic in their roles as a Winter and a Spring. Yet there wasn’t magic strong enough to keep them apart, and they risked everything for their love, for the freedom to live their lives as they choose—together. That choice came at a cost, and Jack had to sacrifice his Winter magic—and his immortality. Although he’d do anything for Fleur, he can’t deny the emptiness he’s felt since. And the world they thought they left behind is still dealing with the fallout of the battle. With Professor Lyon as the new Chronos, Seasons are free to do as they please. But not everyone is happy with the change in leadership. When an old enemy seeks revenge, immense magic runs wild and unchecked, creating chaos everywhere. Thrust into the middle of a new war, Jack and Fleur are again forced to choose between their freedom and saving the world from the storm.

Elle Cosimano - Holding ​Smoke
John ​"Smoke" Conlan is serving time for two murders but he wasn't the one who murdered his English teacher, and he never intended to kill the only other witness to the crime. A dangerous juvenile rehabilitation center in Denver, Colorado, known as the Y, is Smoke's new home and the only one he believes he deserves. But, unlike his fellow inmates, Smoke is not in constant imprisonment. After a near death experience leaves him with the ability to shed his physical body at will, Smoke is able to travel freely outside the concrete walls of the Y, gathering information for himself and his fellow inmates while they're asleep in their beds. Convinced his future is only as bright as the fluorescent lights in his cell, Smoke doesn't care that the "threads" that bind his soul to his body are wearing thin-that one day he may not make it back in time. That is, until he meets Pink, a tough, resourceful girl who is sees him for who he truly is and wants to help him clear his name. Now Smoke is on a journey to redemption he never thought possible. With Pink's help, Smoke may be able to reveal the true killer, but the closer they get to the truth, the more deadly their search becomes. The web of lies, deceit, and corruption that put Smoke behind bars is more tangled than they could have ever imagined. With both of their lives on the line, Smoke will have to decide how much he's willing to risk, and if he can envision a future worth fighting for.

Elle Cosimano - Finlay ​Donovan ölni tudna
Finlay ​Donovan kétgyerekes, egyedülálló és idegileg teljesen kimerült anyuka, aki mellesleg leadási határidőkkel küszködő írónő is egyben. Az élete totális káosz. Az ügynökének beígért könyvével egyáltalán nem halad, a volt férje kérdés nélkül elbocsátotta a kisegítő bébiszittert, négyéves kislányát pedig épp egy igen szerencsétlenül alakult első hajvágási kísérlet eredményeképpen a fejéhez szigszalagozott tincsekkel kénytelen óvodába vinni. Finlay egyre sokasodó problémáin az sem segít, hogy az ügynökével folytatott üzleti ebédje alatt a szomszédos asztalnál ülők kihallgatják krimije tervezett történetét, és tévesen bérgyilkosnak vélik. Finlay pedig saját maga legnagyobb döbbenetére igent mond a felkérésre, hogy elintézzen egy kellemetlen férjet. Mert hát valamiből élni is kell. Persze a való életben közel sem olyan egyszerű egy rendes bűncselekményt elkövetni, mint egy regény lapjain, ráadásul kisvártatva – hogy semmi se legyen egyszerű – Finlay menthetetlenül belebonyolódik egy nagyon is valódi gyilkossági nyomozás eseményeibe. Elle Cosimano az anyaság minden örömét és megpróbáltatását bemutató regénye pergő stílusú és őrülten szellemes, letehetetlenül szórakoztató olvasmány.

Elle Cosimano - Finlay ​Donovan Is Killing It
Finlay ​Donovan is killing it . . . except, she’s really not. She’s a stressed-out single-mom of two and struggling novelist, Finlay’s life is in chaos: the new book she promised her literary agent isn’t written, her ex-husband fired the nanny without telling her, and this morning she had to send her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head after an incident with scissors. When Finlay is overheard discussing the plot of her new suspense novel with her agent over lunch, she’s mistaken for a contract killer, and inadvertently accepts an offer to dispose of a problem husband in order to make ends meet . . . Soon, Finlay discovers that crime in real life is a lot more difficult than its fictional counterpart, as she becomes tangled in a real-life murder investigation. Fast-paced, deliciously witty, and wholeheartedly authentic in depicting the frustrations and triumphs of motherhood in all its messiness, hilarity, and heartfelt moment, Finlay Donovan Is Killing It is the first in a brilliant new series from YA Edgar Award nominee Elle Cosimano.
