Umgeben von kahlen Bäumen in einer schneebedeckten Wildnis und unter einem trüben, düsteren Himmel erstreckt sich die Kolyma in Sibirien, eine 1.200 Meilen lange Straße geschotterten Permafrostbodens in der Nähe des Polarkreises. Ein schmaler Pfad, auf dem Autofahrer mit schwierigen Bedingungen wie vereisten Oberflächen, eingeschränkter Sicht und einer Durchschnittstemperatur von sechzig Grad unter null konfrontiert sind. Tödliche Autounfälle sind an der Tagesordnung. Doch die Autofahrer sind nicht die einzigen Opfer dieser Straße. Die als "Straße der Knochen" bekannte Strecke ist ein riesiger Friedhof für die Gulag-Häftlinge der ehemaligen Sowjetunion. Hunderttausende von Menschen schufteten sich hier zu Tode und ihre Leichen von den eisigen Elementen verschlungen und unter die Permafroststraße gepflügt. Der Dokumentarfilmer Felix "Teig" Teigland ist fasziniert von der Geschichte der Straße und plant eine neue Serie über Leben und Tod auf der Straße der Knochen. Er besucht die Stadt Akhust, den "kältesten Ort der Welt", um dort Geistergeschichten und lokale Legenden zu sammeln. Doch als Teig und sein Team ihr Ziel erreichen, finden sie eine verlassene Stadt vor – bis auf ein katatonisches neunjähriges Mädchen – und ein Rudel räuberischer Wölfe, die schneller und schlauer sind, als es wilde Tiere sein sollten. Verfolgt von den jenseitigen Bestien, sehen sich Teigs Gefährten entlang der Straße der Knochen mit noch unheimlicheren und unerklärlicheren Phänomenen konfrontiert, als würden die Geister von Stalins Opfern sie heimsuchen. Es ist eine erschütternde Reise, die Teig an seine Grenzen bringt und ihn zwingt, sich den Sünden seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen.

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 . . .

From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a postapocalyptic take on the perennial classic "Little Red Riding Hood"...about a woman who isn't as defenseless as she seems.

It's not safe for anyone alone in the woods. There are predators that come out at night: critters and coyotes, snakes and wolves. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. Not since the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease. She is just a woman trying not to get killed in a world that doesn't look anything like the one she grew up in, the one that was perfectly sane and normal and boring until three months ago.

There are worse threats in the woods than the things that stalk their prey at night. Sometimes, there are men. Men with dark desires, weak wills, and evil intents. Men in uniform with classified information, deadly secrets, and unforgiving orders. And sometimes, just sometimes, there's something worse than all of the horrible people and vicious beasts combined.

Red doesn't like to think of herself as a killer, but she isn't about to let herself get eaten up just because she is a woman alone in the woods...

Vor allem Road of Bones klingt auch für mich sehr interessant. Drücke dir die Daumen, dass du mit deiner Liste gut voran kommst 🙂

Das klingt alles sehr gut. Ich habe keine Liste in dem Sinne, ich entscheide immer spontan wenn ich mit einem Buch fertig bin, welches ich als nächstes lese.

Außer bei Rezensionsexemplaren, die lese ich nach Plan.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
