  • Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicles, #2) ♦ Jay Kristoff
  • Kingdom of the Cursed (Kingdom of the Wicked, #2) ♦ Kerri Maniscalco
  • Das Mädchen ♦ Stephen King

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.

After selling her soul to become Queen of the Wicked, Emilia travels to the Seven Circles with the enigmatic Prince of Wrath, where she’s introduced to a seductive world of vice.

She vows to do whatever it takes to avenge her beloved sister, Vittoria... even if that means accepting the hand of the Prince of Pride, the king of demons.

The first rule in the court of the Wicked? Trust no one. With back-stabbing princes, luxurious palaces, mysterious party invitations, and conflicting clues about who really killed her twin, Emilia finds herself more alone than ever before. Can she even trust Wrath, her one-time ally in the mortal world... or is he keeping dangerous secrets about his true nature?

Emilia will be tested in every way as she seeks a series of magical objects that will unlock the clues of her past and the answers she craves...

One sister.
Two sinful princes.
Infinite deception with a side of revenge… Welcome to Hell.

Trisha McFarland ist ein tapferes neunjähriges Mädchen, das mit seinem Bruder und seiner Mutter eine Wanderung unternimmt. Trishas Mutter ist seit kurzem geschieden und bemüht sich unermüdlich, den Kindern die gemeinsamen Wochenenden schön zu gestalten. Trishas Bruder liegt im Clinch mit der Mutter, weil sie mit ihm von Boston nach Maine in eine Kleinstadt gezogen ist, wo ihn seine Klassenkameraden aufziehen. Trisha verlässt kurz den Weg, um pinkeln zu gehen und um sich eine Ruhepause vom Gezänk zu gönnen -- und dabei verläuft sie sich.
Trishas Odyssee entwickelt sich auf mehreren Ebenen, und King vermittelt auf meisterliche Art und Weise, wie sie zunehmend Gefahr verspürt -- von der "ersten flatternden Unruhe" in ihrem Bauch über ihre Stürze in der Wildnis bis hin zu ihrem Abstieg in eine Welt voller Halluzinationen -- die schönste ist ihr geliebter Baseballwerfer Tom Gordon von den Red Sox, dessen Heldentaten sie auf ihrem Walkman lauscht.

One of the most dynamic and globally recognized entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about his life, in a brave and inspiring book that traces his learning curve to a place where outer success, inner happiness, and human connection are aligned. Along the way, Will tells the story in full of one of the most amazing rides through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever had.

Will Smith’s transformation from a West Philadelphia kid to one of the biggest rap stars of his era, and then one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history, is an epic tale—but it’s only half the story.

Will Smith thought, with good reason, that he had won at life: not only was his own success unparalleled, his whole family was at the pinnacle of the entertainment world. Only they didn't see it that way: they felt more like star performers in his circus, a seven-days-a-week job they hadn't signed up for. It turned out Will Smith's education wasn't nearly over.

This memoir is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. Written with the help of Mark Manson, author of the multi-million-copy bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will is the story of how one person mastered his own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else do the same. Few of us will know the pressure of performing on the world's biggest stages for the highest of stakes, but we can all understand that the fuel that works for one stage of our journey might have to be changed if we want to make it all the way home. The combination of genuine wisdom of universal value and a life story that is preposterously entertaining, even astonishing, puts Will the book, like its author, in a category by itself.
