Titel: Kingsbane | Serie: Empirium #2 | Forfatter: Claire LeGrand | Genre: YA Fantasy | Udgivelse: 21. Maj

In this sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller Furyborn, two queens, separated by a thousand years, connected by secrets and lies, must continue their fight amid deadly plots and unthinkable betrayals that will test their strength—and their hearts.

Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love Audric protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien—but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist.

Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity’s long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption—fear of becoming another Rielle—keeps Eliana’s power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted—by embracing her mother’s power, or rejecting it forever.


Titel: We Hunt the Flame  Serie: Sand of Arawiya #1 | Forfatter: Hafsah Faizal | Genre: YA Fantasy | Udgivelse: 14. Maj

People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways.

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.

War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.

Set in a richly detailed world inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a gripping debut of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.


Titel: Stepsister | Serie: – | Forfatter: Jennifer Donnelly | Genre: YA Fantasy, Retelling | Udgivelse: 14. Maj

Isabelle should be blissfully happy – she’s about to win the handsome prince. Except Isabelle isn’t the beautiful girl who lost the glass slipper and captured the prince’s heart. She’s the ugly stepsister who’s cut off her toes to fit into Cinderella’s shoe … which is now filling with blood.

When the prince discovers Isabelle’s deception, she is turned away in shame. It’s no more than she deserves: she is a plain girl in a world that values beauty; a feisty girl in a world that wants her to be pliant.

Isabelle has tried to fit in. To live up to her mother’s expectations. To be like her stepsister. To be sweet. To be pretty. One by one, she has cut away pieces of herself in order to survive a world that doesn’t appreciate a girl like her. And that has made her mean, jealous, and hollow.

Until she gets a chance to alter her destiny and prove what ugly stepsisters have always known: it takes more than heartache to break a girl.


Titel: The Candle and the Flame | Serie: – | Forfatter: Nafiza Azad | Genre: YA Fantasy | Udgivelse: 14. Maj

Fatima lives in the city of Noor, a thriving stop along the Silk Road. There the music of myriad languages fills the air, and people of all faiths weave their lives together. However, the city bears scars of its recent past, when the chaotic tribe of Shayateen djinn slaughtered its entire population — except for Fatima and two other humans. Now ruled by a new maharajah, Noor is protected from the Shayateen by the Ifrit, djinn of order and reason, and by their commander, Zulfikar.

But when one of the most potent of the Ifrit dies, Fatima is changed in ways she cannot fathom, ways that scare even those who love her. Oud in hand, Fatima is drawn into the intrigues of the maharajah and his sister, the affairs of Zulfikar and the djinn, and the dangers of a magical battlefield.

Nafiza Azad weaves an immersive tale of magic and the importance of names; fiercely independent women; and, perhaps most importantly, the work for harmony within a city of a thousand cultures and cadences.

But she can’t code her dad back into her life. When he disappeared after her tenth birthday, leaving only a cryptic note, Opal tried desperately to find him. And when he never turned up, she enrolled at a boarding school for technical prodigies and tried to forget.

Until now. Because WAVE, the world’s biggest virtual reality platform, has announced a contest where the winner gets to meet its billionaire founder. The same billionaire who worked closely with Opal’s dad. The one she always believed might know where he went. The one who maybe even murdered him.

What begins as a small data hack to win the contest spirals out of control when Opal goes viral, digging her deeper into a hole of lies, hacks, and manipulation. How far will Opal go for the answers–or is it the attention–she’s wanted for years?

The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.

Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery — and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.


Titel: The Bone Charmer | Serie: – | Forfatter: Breeana Shields | Genre: YA Fantasy | Udgivelse: 21. Maj

In Saskia’s world, bones are the source of all power. They tell the future, reveal the past, and expose secrets in the present. Each village has a designated seer who performs readings for the townsfolk, and in Midwood, the Bone Charmer is Saskia’s mother.

On the day of her kenning—a special bone reading that determines the apprenticeships of all seventeen-year-olds—Saskia’s worst fears come true. She receives an assignment to train as a Bone Charmer, like her mother, and even worse, a match-making reading that pairs her with Bram—a boy who has suspicious tattoos that hint of violence.

Saskia knows her mother saw multiple paths for her, yet chose one she knew Saskia wouldn’t want. Their argument leads to a fracture in one of the bones. Broken bones are always bad luck, but this particular set of bones have been infused with extra magic, and so the break has devastating consequences—Saskia’s future has split as well. Now she will live her two potential paths simultaneously. Only one future can survive. And Saskia’s life is in danger in both.

From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.


Titel: Storm Cursed | Serie: Mercy Thompson #11 | Forfatter: Patricia Briggs | Genre: Adult Paranormal, Urban Fantasy | Udgivelse: 7. Maj

In this powerful entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves…

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter.

And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word.

We will die to keep it.

Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her . . .

As a talented faceshifter, it’s been years since Finn has seen her own face, and that’s exactly how she likes it. But when Finn gets caught by a powerful mobster, she’s forced into an impossible mission: steal a legendary treasure from Castallan’s royal palace or be stripped of her magic forever.

But when Finn and Alfie’s fates collide, they accidentally unlock a terrible, ancient power—which, if not contained, will devour the world. And with Castallan’s fate in their hands, Alfie and Finn must race to vanquish what they have unleashed, even if it means facing the deepest darkness in their pasts.

Titel: En Morders Tårer | Serie: – | Forfatter: Anne-Laure Bondoux | Forlag: Vild Maskine | Genre: YA Contemporary | Udgivelse: 31. Maj

Manden og kvinden havde et barn, der voksede, som alt andet på denne egn, hvilket vil sige ikke særlig godt. Han tilbragte sine dage med at jage slanger. Han havde jord under neglene, og den kraftige vind, der blæste ubønhørligt, havde givet ham stritører. Hans navn var Paolo. Paolo Poloverdo. Det var Paolo, der først så manden komme gående ad stien i det fjerne, en varm januardag. Denne gang var der hverken tale om en geolog eller en opdagelsesrejsende, og endnu mindre en digter. Det var Angel Allegria, der kom gående. En forbryder. En tyv. En morder.

“En morders tårer” er en storslået roman om uskyldighed og ondskab og et skæbnemøde mellem tre personer på jagt efter hver deres sandhed.
ANNE-LAURE BONDOUX er en internationalt prisbelønnetforfatter, og “En morders tårer” er hendes mest kendte roman. Hendes første bog på dansk, Miraklernes tid, fik flotte anmeldelser, da den udkom:
“En sjældent smukt skrevet bog” Berlingske (seks stjerner)

Hov, nu glemte jeg helt mine pinlige forældre  og deres lige så pinlige forhold til vores katte, Baby og Junior.
Nå ja, for resten: Jeg hedder Albert.
Velkommen til min sommerferie!

But five hundred years later, it’s now a place where an extravagant elite class reigns supreme; where the clouds hide the stars and the poor starve in the streets; where a rebel group, long thought dead, is resurfacing.

Whispers of revolution have begun—a revolution that hinges on three unlikely heroes…

Chatine is a street-savvy thief who will do anything to escape the brutal Regime, including spy on Marcellus, the grandson of the most powerful man on the planet.

Marcellus is an officer—and the son of a renowned traitor. In training to take command of the military, Marcellus begins to doubt the government he’s vowed to serve when his father dies and leaves behind a cryptic message that only one person can read: a girl named Alouette.

Alouette is living in an underground refuge, where she guards and protects the last surviving library on the planet. But a shocking murder will bring Alouette to the surface for the first time in twelve years…and plunge Laterre into chaos.

All three have a role to play in a dangerous game of revolution—and together they will shape the future of a planet.

Power, romance, and destiny collide in this sweeping reimagining of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece, Les Misérables.

Titel: Riluo By | Serie: Blå Fønix #1 | Forfatter: Tina Lynge | Forlag: mellemgaard | Genre: YA Fantasy | Udgivelse: 15. Marts

At ofre sit liv for at sikre sin bedste vens fremtid er uden tvivl en beslutning, som Hui Yue ikke fortryder, men hvem kunne have vidst, at døden ikke er det endelige stoppested, men nærmere begyndelsen til et nyt eventyr i en verden fyldt med dæmoniske væsner og kultivering af ens indre energier. Hui Yue finder hurtigt ud af, at i denne verden er ens styrke det, der afgør ens fremtidige muligheder, og at der ikke er nogen plads til de svage. Han begiver sig ud på en færd, hvor han finder nye venner, møder forræderi samt finder begyndelsen på sin egen rejse i verdenen af kultivering af sine indre energier i et forsøg på at overkomme sine grænser og blive stærk.

Uddrag af bogen Hui Yue kunne mærke, at Lan Feng pludselig blev stiv af skræk. ”Åh nej!” sagde han og tog med samme styring over Hui Yues krop. ”LØB!” råbte Lan Feng og pegede mod stien, de oprindeligt var kommet fra. Det hurtige skift i stemning fra den ellers arrogante fugl gjorde, at ingen stillede nogen spørgsmål. De efterlod alt det, de havde pakket ud, og løb tilbage, hvor de kom fra. Hvad sker der’” spurgte Hui Yue bekymret. Selvom Lan Feng og Hui Yue havde stået over for farer før, havde han aldrig mærket en så omfattende følelse af panik. Han kunne mærke en overvældende aura bag sig. I virkeligheden var det ikke Hui Yue, der kunne fornemme det, men Lan Feng. Deres sjælekobling gjorde dog, at Hui Yue kunne mærke Lan Fengs følelser, om end det blot var et lille udsnit. Når Lan Feng råbte sådan, kunne Hui Yue kun forestille sig, hvor mægtig denne aura var. Fuck!” råbte Lan Feng højt og gjorde blot de unge mennesker mere bange. De løb langs stien og kom hurtigere ud af skoven, end de nogensinde var kommet ind i den. Nu kunne de se deres telte og indhegningen til deres dyr i horisonten. Halvvejs derhenne vendte Lan Feng sig rundt og var nu i forsvarsposition.

Det var dog ikke muligt at slukke hendes fantasi, som blev ved med at udvikle historier, og til sidst satte hun sig ned og begyndte at skrive. Det er hun så ikke stoppet med siden. Hendes første serie er Blå Fønix, en serie på otte bøger, som har en stor plads i hendes hjerte, og som hun har brugt både blod, sved og tårer på at skrive.
