Neuzugänge # 37 (English Edition)

Nach meinem "Hello, I'm back" Post melde ich mich mal gleich einmal mit einem Neuzugängepost
zurück, da diese Woche wieder einige Bücher bei mir einziehen durften. Vorab muss ich sagen, dass ich in meiner Abwesenheit das Lesen englischer Bücher für mich entdeckt habe. Ich hatte in 2013 schon einmal einen Versuch gestartet, aber irgendwie kam ich da einfach nicht voran. Aber mittlerweile merke ich den Unterschied zwischen englischen und deutschen Büchern kaum noch. Deswegen stelle ich euch heute mal meine neuen englischen Bücher vor:

Da ich seit der Lux Serie (die ich nebenbei auch ganz in englisch gelesen habe :D) ein Fan von Jennifer L. Armentrout bin, habe ich vor nicht allzu langer Zeit mit ihrer Covenant Serie angefangen. Die Vorgeschichte "Daimon", Band eins (Half Blood) und zwei (Pure) habe ich bereits verschlungen, weshalb ich mir den Rest der Serie direkt bestellt habe. Weiterhin durfte auch das neue Buch von Ally Condie mit. Von ihr habe ich bislang nur den ersten Teil von Cassia & Ky gelesen. Zu guter Letzt durfte dann auch noch "The Young Elites" von Marie Lu mit, der erste Teil einer neuen Serie. Von Marie Lu habe ich bislang auch noch nichts gelesen, wobei ich über ihre Legend Serie schon sehr viel positives gehört habe und diese auch noch gerne lesen würde :)

Inhalt zu The Young Elites:

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen. Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Inhalt zu Atlantia:
(bereits auf deutsch erschienen)

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamed of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all Rio’s hopes for the future are shattered when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected choice, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long silenced—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the corrupted system constructed to govern the Divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

Inhalt zur Covenant Series 
An dieser Stelle jedoch nur die Kurzbeschreibung zu Band eins. Band 1 - 4 dieser Serie sind übrigens auch schon auf deutsch erhältlich ;-)

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals--well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
