Three Dark Crowns von Kendare Blake

Titel: Three Dark Crowns | Autor: Kendare Blake | Verlag: Harper Teen | ISBN: 9780062564122 | Reihe: Three Dark Crowns #1| Format: Taschenbuch  | add on Goodreads
Every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.

If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she tries, can’t make even a weed grow. The two queens have been shamefully faking their powers, taking care to keep each other, the island, and their powerful sister Mirabella none the wiser. But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens’ every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest…but she may be the darkest.

Nevernight von Jay Kristoff

Titel: Nevernight | Autor: Jay Kristoff | Verlag: Harper Voyager | ISBN: 9781250073020 | Reihe: Nevernight Chronicle #1 | Format: Hardcover | add on Goodreads
In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.

Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?

Kindle Voyage Schutzhüllen

Passend zu meinem Testbericht des Kindle Voyages, möchte ich euch zwei verschiedene Taschen vorstellen, die ich sehr gerne für den Schutz meines Kindles nutze. Beide Taschen sind vom Typ sehr unterschiedlich und auch von der Nutzung anders zu handhaben. Ich finde sie sehr gut und war in beiden auch gleich schnell verliebt, aber wieso manchmal ein simples Sleeve doch besser ist, gibt es im Beitrag nachzulesen.
