August 2023 – Meine TBR Liste

Wie ich es bereits im in meiner letzten TBR – Liste vorausgesagt hatte, bin ich im Urlaub nicht wirklich zum Lesen gekommen. Es war einfach immer was los. Aber mit einem Kindergartenkind ist es halt auch schwierig, sich tagsüber etwas Zeit zu verschaffen. Doch ich beschwere mich nicht, ich hab den Urlaub mit dem Kurzen genossen, wir haben viel erlebt und gesehen. Und wenn er abends hundemüde ins Bett gefallen ist, hab ich mir ein paar Minuten mit dem Kindle gegönnt. Das ReziEx musste gelesen werden, doch bei der Besprechung tue ich mich ein wenig schwer.

Hier aber erst einmal die geplanten Bücher für August. Ein ReziEx (ARC) habe ich auch wieder dabei. Außerdem möchte ich endlich die Throne of Glass – Reihe im engl. Original beenden. Es wird auch endlich mal Zeit, dass ich bei den Nevernight Chronicles weiterlese. Wenn ich es genauer betrachte, habe ich für August 2023 nur englischsprachige Bücher in der Auswahl. 😍

  • The Blood Queen – A ‘Bhanrigh Fuil ♦ David H. Miller Kindle Edition/ARC
  • Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) ♦ Sarah J. Mass Hardcover ★★★★
  • Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7) ♦ Sarah J. Mass Hardcover
  • Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicles, #2) ♦ Jay Kristoff Hardcover

True evil is a persistent and tenacious beast. Its desire for existence is eternal and insatiable. It needs to infect only one mind for its insidious philosophy to take root and spread.
It is 394 B.C. At a remote loch in the highlands of Northern Albu, a priest sacrifices nine innocents. Below the water’s surface, a shape feeds on their blood and begins to take form. Soon it becomes sentient and begins to hunt. Sidheag has risen.
Humans cannot defeat the abomination. Neither can Mongfhionn, the powerful leader of the demi-goddesses of the Aes Sidhe. The only remedy is the Blood Queen and Gràinne is the sole heir to that throne. Will the Blood Queen stand alongside Mongfhionn to confront Sidheag?
Yet the cost for Gràinne may be too much—unless her daughter, Brianag, is in jeopardy.
Passions, always near the surface of the Celts, burst into flames in The Blood Queen where father is pitted against son; mother against daughter; sister against sister; brother against sister; and father against daughter.

Chaol Westfall and Nesryn Faliq have arrived in the shining city of Antica to forge an alliance with the Khagan of the Southern Continent, whose vast armies are Erilea's last hope. But they have also come to Antica for another purpose: to seek healing at the famed Torre Cesme for the wounds Chaol received in Rifthold.

After enduring unspeakable horrors as a child, Yrene Towers has no desire to help the young lord from Adarlan, let alone heal him. Yet she has sworn an oath to assist those in need—and will honor it. But Lord Westfall carries shadows from his own past, and Yrene soon comes to realize they could engulf them both.

In this sweeping parallel novel to the New York Times bestselling Empire of Storms, Chaol, Nesryn, and Yrene will have to draw on every scrap of their resilience if they wish to save their friends. But while they become entangled in the political webs of the khaganate, deep in the shadows of mighty mountains where warriors soar on legendary ruks, long-awaited answers slumber. Answers that might offer their world a chance at survival—or doom them all . . .

Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church hierarchy think she's far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she's no closer to ending the men who destroyed her familia; in fact, she's told directly that Consul Scaeva is off limits. But after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia's suspicions about the Red Church's true motives begin to grow.
