Fem bogserier jeg virkelig gerne vil begynde på lige nu

For tiden er jeg lidt i det der læsehumør, hvor jeg har lyst til at begynde på en nye serie, at opdage et nyt univers og nye, fantastiske karakterer. Så hermed fem bogserier jeg har luret på længe og er dem jeg lige nu har mest lyst til at starte på.

28954189

Scythe-trilogien af Neal Schusterman, Engelsk

Den her har jeg lagt i min indkøbskurv på diverse bogshoppingsider mindst 10 gange, og jeg burde seriøst bare købe den. Den er pæn, lyder fantastisk, og jeg kan ikke holde op med at tænke på den. Den første bog er udkommet, og toeren udkommer næste år. Så vidt jeg ved er det en trilogi. Find den på Goodreads her.

 

29939048

Stormheart-serien af Cora Carmack, Engelsk

Jeg har læst Cora Carmacks NA-romance-serie Losing It, og dem elskede jeg. Stormheart er YA fantasy, så en lidt anden boldgade, men jeg er ligeglad – den første bog lyder fantastisk! Find den på Goodreads her.

28524058

Fallen Isles-trilogien af Jodi Meadows, Engelsk

Jeg har ikke læst noget af Jodi Meadows, men jeg har kigget på både hendes Newsoul og Orphan Queen-serie flere gange, og de lyder virkelig spændende! Men den her lyder helt fantastisk, og jeg er helt forelsket i coveret. Det er YA fantasy med drager, og den første bog er udkommet, og toeren kommer næste år. Find den på Goodreads her.

26114463.jpg

Nevernight-trilogien af Jay Kristoff, Engelsk

Det her er også en af de bøger jeg har været et enkelt klik fra at købe flere gange. Den bliver rost til skyerne, den lyder fantastisk, og coveret er fantastisk. Det er noget med en snigmorderskole, det er fantasy, og jeg er mega solgt på konceptet. De to første bøger er udkommet, og den sidste udkommer næste år. Find den på Goodreads her.

17564519

Gold Seer-trilogien af Rae Carosn, Engelsk

Jeg elskede Rae Carsons Fire and Thorns-trilogi, og den her har et helt anderldes koncept end noget jeg har hørt om før. Den foregår i perioden omkring det amerikanske Gold Rush, og handler om en pige der kan fornemme guld i jorden. Den er vel en slags historisk fantasy af en art. Alle bøger er udkommet, og du kan finde den på Goodreads her.

“Valget” er en spændende roman af Sarah Engell, der handler om at tage store valg. Beretningen om den 18-årige Xenia fokuserer på spørgsmålet om, hvor meget man vil ofre for en fremmed.

Xenia har kæmpet længe for at blive frontfigur i Etisk parti. Hun er endelig ved at opnå sin drøm og kan se sig selv have en positiv indflydelse på verdenssituationen. En dag møder hun en pige, der er flygtet hele vejen til Danmark, alene. Nu må Xenia træffe et valg.

Med “Valget” har Sarah Engell skrevet en smuk roman, der viser børn og unge, hvor store konsekvenser valg kan have.

Valget er den første bog af Sarah Engell jeg har læst, og hvis alle hendes bøger er lige så fantastisk skrevet, så bliver Sarah Engell et must-read for mig. Den er bog var fuldstændig un-put-downable for mig, jeg startede på den med intentionen om bare at læse et kapitel eller to, og i stedet endte jeg med at læse den færdig i ét stræk og først gå i seng klokken halv to om natten. Den slags bøger er simpelthen bare den bedste slags bøger.

Nu er det ikke fordi jeg syntes bogen var fejlfri, faktisk er jeg absolut ikke fan af at jeg lidt følte den prøvede at pådutte mig politiske synspunkter, eller at Xenia egentlig er ret naiv og har frygtelig travlt med at dømme andre og har meget lidt respekt for, at andre måske ikke mener det samme som hende. Normalt ville det være noget som tog lidt af læseoplevelsen fra mig, men ikke her. Jeg slugte simpelthen den her bog, og den fik mig hele vejen igennem følelsesregisteret. Jeg var vred, glad, trist, jeg grinte og jeg følte empowerment og respekt for Xenias jernvilje og målrettethed. Uanset om man er enig med Xenia i hendes politiske holdninger, så kan man læse den her bog og elske den, for Sarah Engell skriver en fantastisk medrivende historie, som er komplet umulig at slippe.

Nu er der jo en årsag til, at bogen titel er Valget, og jeg kan vældig godt lide hvordan den behandler spørgsmålet om, hvad du ville vælge at gøre. Hvor meget vil du ofre for at hjælpe en anden som du ikke engang kender? Dine venner, din familie, penge, din karriere? Hvor går grænsen for dig? for andre? for Xenia?

Jeg så det også som en positiv ting, at bogen er romance-fri. En historie kan sagtens være god uden at der behøver være romantik involveret, og det her er en af dem. Jeg elsker, hvordan Zenias passion og drive for det hun laver skinner igennem, men at der også er plads til at vise konsekvensen af de valg hun tager, og hvordan hun måske ender med at miste venner og veninder, fordi hun vælger noget som de måske ikke helt forstår – eller rettere, hun vælger noget andet til end dem. Jeg elsker hvordan Xenia er så relateable, også selvom man egentlig ikke kan lide hende eller er enig i hendes politiske holdninger. Jeg brød mig faktisk ikke synderligt om Xenia, men det var faktisk lige meget, for jeg kunne sagtens relatere til hende alligevel. Hendes personlighed skinner så meget igennem, at hun føles virkelig og håndgribelig, som en person man kender efter kun et kapitel eller to.

Lad være med at lade dig afskrække af det politiske emne, og læs den her bog fordi det er en pageturner. Du behøver heller ikke læse den fordi det er en historie med et vigtigt budskab, men læs den fordi den viser en fantastisk karakter og konsekvensen af de valg man tager. Fantastisk bog!

Anmeldelse: Grænsen til Trafallas #1: Den Halves Arv

  • Udgivelse: 2017
  • Sprog: Dansk

”Hvad er jeg?” gentog jeg. Denne gang lød jeg vredere end planlagt. Men jeg var vred! Jeg var vred og frustreret.

”Du er halv,” sagde han så.

De tre ord virkede voldsomme og på samme tid befriende. Og pludselig havde jeg svært ved at synke.

Da Grace stifter bekendtskab med en mærkværdig skriftrulle, og der samtidig kommer en fremmed mand til byen, er hun ikke i tvivl – den fremmede vil hende noget, og det er ikke nødvendigvis noget godt.

Inden længe bliver Grace hvirvlet ind i en ældgammel fejde mellem godt og ondt. Hun er stærkt ønsket af nogen i det fremmede og magiske land, Trafallas, mens andre helst ser hende forsvinde. Hvem er de gode, og hvem er de onde, og hvem af dem kan Grace stole på?

Grænsen til Trafallas er en fængslende fantasyfortælling om krig, magi og kærlighed, om at finde sin rette identitet og om at turde at ofre sig for at redde dem, man elsker. Den halves arv er 1. del af 3.

Jeg var virkelig positivt overrasket over den her bog! Der er langt imellem bøger om Elvere, og den her var virkelig en af de bedre. Hånden på hjertet, så var den første halvdel af bogen klart den bedste for mig, men det var overall en virkelig god læseoplevelse.

Det Gode:

  • Grace. Historien fortælles i første person fra Grace’s synspunkt, og jeg kunne vældig godt lide hende! Hendes måde at tænke på og måden hun er skrevet på minder mig lidt om Sookie fra True Blood, ligefrem og nede på jorden, hvor det faktisk er interessant at høre hvad hun tænker om mere eller mindre alting. Jeg fik senere lidt issues med Grace, men overall kunne jeg vældig godt lide hende som hovedperson.
  • Worldbuildingen. Jeg elsker når der er brugt tid på at tænke over sådan noget som hvor mange skrifttegn elvernes sprog har, hvordan deres historie har været med krige og så videre, hvordan deres verden ser anderldes ud end vores, anderledes planter og dyr og alt sådan noget. Det var detaljeret, og det var believeable.
  • Plottet er godt. Det er faktisk ret spændende at følge med i at Grace finder ud af hvordan det her hænger sammen, de lukkede grænser og alt det der.
  • Elverne. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide at elverne er tydeligt anderledes end mennesker, men ikke alt for fremmede og ikke alt for klassisk elvere. Elvere bliver tit fremstillet som arrogante, og det var rart at det ikke var tilfældet her.
  • Tidlinjen. Det her er ikke sådan en bog hvor det hele foregår over få dage. I stedet foregår det over længere tid, og det er faktisk med til at gøre det hele meget mere realistisk og troværdigt. Let’s be real, man kan ikke lære et nyt sprog på et par dage, eller lære brugen af magi på en time, så at der er plads til at det tager lidt tid i den her bog er et kæmpe plus.
  • Indlevelsesfaktoren. Hver gang man åbner bogen for at læse videre er man med det samme tilbage i universet, og man forsvinder fra omverdenen.
  • Beskrivelsen af elvernes byer. Det fremstod så levende og tydeligt for mig, og jeg forestillede mig det som fantastisk smukt.

Det knap så gode:

  • Der er lidt overdrevet brug af udråbstegn. Det er ikke fordi det er frygteligt eller noget, men der bliver tit brugt udråbstegn når Grace tænker et eller andet og gerne vil lægge tryk på, men det føles lidt som om hun råber i stedet.
  • Otera, lederen af oprørsgruppen. Otera er ond på den dårlige måde, på muhahaha-dø-måden hvor hun bare er snotdum og træls, i stedet for ond på den snu, listige måde, hvor man bliver lidt bange for hende. Hun er meget ensidet, og det er ret belastende.
  • Romancen. Det fungerede vældig godt i starten, men det går bare for stærkt. Der er ikke ret langt fra “vi hader hinanden” til “vi er soulmates”, og jeg følte overhovedet ingen connection imellem dem. Og så er Zachos utrolig kontrollerende, og behandler Grace som et lille barn.
  • Jeg synes Grace bliver lidt tåbelig og tankeløs nogle gange. Pyt med om hele menneskeheden mister deres fri vilje, hvis bare hun kan få Zachos. Come on.

Jeg var godt underholdt hele vejen gennem bogen, men jeg kunne klart bedst lide den første halvdel. Jeg kunne godt lide Grace, og jeg elskede worldbuildingen. Det var sådan en bog som man blev suget ind i med det samme, og hver gang man samlede den op for at læse videre skulle der kun et par sætninger til før man igen var tilbage i universet og forsvandt ind i bogen. Jeg synes ikke romancen fungerede for mig, men derudover synes jeg historien var god. Og så slutter den på et rigtigt spændende tidspunkt, så man bagefter glæder sig vildt til næste bog i serien.

Cover Release: Valiant #2: Defiant

Det her må være et af de absolut bedste covers i år. Jeg elsker det! Jeg fik vist aldrig lavet et cover release-indlæg på coveret til etteren, men det syntes jeg faktisk også var ret godt. Men det her er bare så meget bedre! Deifant er anden bog i hvad jeg tror er en trilogi, der foregår i det gamle Rom, og er en historisk inspireret fantasy.

35209814.jpg

Men altså, kan vi lige tage et øjeblik til at sætte pris på hvor fantastisk det her cover er? I am Woman, hear me Roar! Så fierce, så meget aftion, så meget romersk, jeg elsker det! Generelt er jo vild med blå/lilla covers (ret sært, når min yndlingsfarve faktisk er gul), og det her har den helt perfekte Lilla nuance, og jeg er vild med at det hele er så detaljeret, også baggrunden, tærrænet de kæmper på og så videre. Og hende med ryggen til har hvad der ligner en flail med ild i. freaking awesome altså! Jeg synes måske det kunne have været ekstra nice hvis titlen var med guld og ikke sølv, men altså. Småting!

valiantseries

Jeg kan godt lide coveret til den første, men coveret til toeren ER bare lidt federe! Men selvom de er så forskellige, så synes jeg godt man kan se at de tilhører en serie, og det romerske tema går igen i både coveret og titlen skrift, så jeg er helt klart fan!

The Defiant udkommer 13. Februar 2018, og du kan finde den på Goodreads her, og den første bog på Goodreads her eller herunder.

Now, on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is eager to follow in her sister’s footsteps and earn her place in the fearsome Cantii war band. She never gets the chance.

Fallon is captured and sold to an elite training school for female gladiators—owned by none other than Julius Caesar. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon’s family might be her only hope of survival.

Now Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries and deadly fights—in and out of the arena. And perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her forbidden yet irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier.

Det er godt nok vildt at jeg syntes så dårligt om bog et, men alligevel endte med at synes at den her var helt god. Jeg var ret godt underholdt, og jeg var på ingen måde så træt af den som jeg var af etteren. Okay, jeg indrømmer gerne at det er fordi Daniel og Cam er så lidt med i den, men alligevel. Det er rimelig svært at gå fra 1 stjerne til 3, det plejer jo gerne at gå nedad efter den første bog i stedet.

Men her gik det altså den anden vej, og det er mest fordi Cam og Daniel er AWOL det meste af bogen. De dukker op engang imellem, men for det meste er det væk fra Luce, og det var bare så meget bedre! Luce bliver snotdum i hovedet når Daniel er i nærheden, og Cam er bare træls. Så ingen Cam og ingen Daniel = win.

Faktisk synes jeg rigtig godt om Luce, når hun ikke lige plaprer løs om sin forelskelse i Daniel. Jo søster, du kan godt leve uden ham. Faktisk kan jeg især godt lide, at hun i løbet af bogen bliver i tvivl om deres forhold. Hun elsker ham, det benægter hun ikke, men hun er træt af at han forsøger at kontrollere hende, hun er træt af at han skjuler ting for hende, og så når hun frem til en konklusion, som jeg var virkelig meget fan af: De laver ikke andet end at skændes, de har ingenting til fælles og ingenting at snakke om. Når de ikke lige kysser, så er det faktisk ret ringe. Det kom bag på mig, at hun ikke forsøgte at undskylde det eller bortforklare det, hun syntes faktisk selv det var et problem. Pluspoint til Luce for det.

Noget andet er at det faktisk er helt spændende at følge Luce på den nye skole. Hvordan hun får venner, hvordan hun langsomt finder ud af mere om varslerne, og meget af det dagligsdags halløj, hvor man lærer Luce bedre at kende, og man følger hende opbygge venskab med både Shelby og Miles. Og så er der utroskab også, og det er jeg virkelig glad for – Luce og Daniel er soulmates, bogstaveligt talt, så det kan hurtigt blive meget sukkersødt og meant to be-agtigt, men så kom det her lige ind fra højre, og jeg elsker det! Cue the drama!

Luce stopper stadig op og eksaminerer sine tanker og følelser lige rigeligt nok, så nogle gange går handlingen lidt i stå, men ellers er det faktisk kun Cam og Daniel der egentlig trækker historien ned. Daniel er en nar, og Cam er en nar.

Overall, så var godt underholdt. Jeg synes den var god, jeg kunne meget bedre lide Luce, og jeg kunne vældig godt lide at følge Luce lære nye mennesker at kende og få venner. Jeg elskede dramaet, men jeg kunne stadig godt undvære både Cam og Daniel. Men så ville der selvfølgelig nok ikke være så meget historie til at begynde med. Jeg er ret spændt på hvor historien skal hen herfra, for den slutter faktisk på en meget overraskende måde med en Luce der faktisk har rygrad og gør noget mega modigt og selvstændigt.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together―and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past―even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.

When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.

Vulnerable.

When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying’s advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.

It’s a new day in the Empire. Tyrus has ascended to the throne with Nemesis by his side and now they can find a new way forward—one where they don’t have to hide or scheme or kill. One where creatures like Nemesis will be given worth and recognition, where science and information can be shared with everyone and not just the elite.

But having power isn’t the same thing as keeping it, and change isn’t always welcome. The ruling class, the Grandiloquy, has held control over planets and systems for centuries—and they are plotting to stop this teenage Emperor and Nemesis, who is considered nothing more than a creature and certainly not worthy of being Empress.

Nemesis will protect Tyrus at any cost. He is the love of her life, and they are partners in this new beginning. But she cannot protect him by being the killing machine she once was. She will have to prove the humanity that she’s found inside herself to the whole Empire—or she and Tyrus may lose more than just the throne. But if proving her humanity means that she and Tyrus must do inhuman things, is the fight worth the cost of winning it?

The Herons take to the high seas to fend off pirates and rescue the heir to an empire in the newest adventure from John Flanagan, author of the worldwide bestselling Ranger’s Apprentice! 

Includes BONUS content–a brand-new Ranger’s Apprentice short story featuring fan-favorites Will and Maddie!

In Hallasholm, Stig is contesting the annual Maktig competition to decide Skandia’s greatest warrior. But a late-night knock on the door brings someone Stig never expected to see again, along with a request the Herons are hard-pressed to refuse: a rescue mission of epic proportions.

Across the ocean, the southern city-state of Byzantos is plagued by a crew of pirates who’ve kidnapped the son of Empress Justina. Slipping out of Hallasholm under the cover of darkness, the brotherband sets sail to recover the boy from his kidnappers, heading south to the island of Santorillos where a near-impenetrable fortress stands atop a cliff, surrounded by a lagoon–a caldera–formed by the crater of a volcano.

In this explosive seventh book in the action-packed Brotherband Chronicles, the Herons battle pirates amid stormy seas as the fate of an empire rests on their shoulders.

Haunted by painful memories, Archer struggles to overcome the trauma of his past with the impressors, whose cruelty plagues him whenever he closes his eyes. But when Sefia and Archer happen upon a crew of impressors in the wilderness, Archer finally finds a way to combat his nightmares: by hunting impressors and freeing the boys they hold captive.

With Sefia’s help, Archer travels across the kingdom of Deliene rescuing boys while she continues to investigate the mysterious Book and secrets it contains. But the more battles they fight, the more fights Archer craves, until his thirst for violence threatens to transform him from the gentle boy Sefia knows to a grim warrior with a cruel destiny. As Sefia begins to unravel the threads that connect Archer’s fate to her parents’ betrayal of the Guard so long ago, she and Archer must figure out a way to subvert the Guard’s plans before they are ensnared in a war that will pit kingdom against kingdom, leaving their future and the safety of the entire world hanging in the balance.

When he is singled out by a seductive Kin named Tomás and the enigmatic Hunter Jarrett, Tenn realizes he’s become a pawn in a bigger game. One that could turn the tides of war.

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

There’s nowhere to hide.

Not when you’re an Effigy. No matter where they go, Maia and the other Effigies can’t escape the eyes of the press—especially not after failing to capture Saul, whose power to control the monstrous Phantoms has left the world in a state of panic. It’s been two months since Saul’s disappearance, and there’s still no sign of him, leaving the public to wonder whether the Sect—and the Effigies—are capable of protecting anyone.

When Saul suddenly surfaces in the middle of the Sahara desert, the Sect sends Maia and her friends out after him. But instead of Saul, they discover a dying soldier engineered with Effigy-like abilities. Even worse, there may be more soldiers like him out there, and it looks like the Effigies are their prime targets.

Yet the looming danger of Saul and this mysterious new army doesn’t overshadow Maia’s fear of the Sect, who ordered the death of the previous Fire Effigy, Natalya. With enemies on all sides and the world turning against them, the Effigies have to put their trust in each other—easier said than done when secrets threaten to tear them apart.
