März-Bücher

Ich melde mich zurück mit 2 neuen Bücher, die ich mir im Belfast-Urlaub gekauft habe!

Diese 2 Schätze sind jetzt in meinem Besitz:

1. Nights of Villjamur (Legends of the Red Sun 1) von Mark Charon Newton
 
Kurzbeschreibung
Political intrigue and dark violence converge in a superb new action series of enthralling fantasy. An ice age strikes a chain of islands, and thousands come to seek sanctuary at the gates of Villjamur: a city of ancient spires and bridges, a place where banshees wail the deceased, cultists use forgotten technology for their own gain and where, further out, the dead have been seen walking across the tundra.When the Emperor commits suicide, his elder daughter, Rika, is brought home to lead the Jamur Empire, but the sinister Chancellor plans to get rid of her and claim the throne for himself. Meanwhile a senior investigator in the city inquisition must solve the high-profile and savage murder of a city politician, whilst battling evils within his own life, and a handsome and serial womanizer manipulates his way into the imperial residence with a hidden agenda. When reports are received that tens of thousands of citizens are dying in a bizarre genocide on the northern islands of the Empire, members of the elite Night Guard are sent to investigate. It seems that, in this land under a red sun, the long winter is bringing more than just snow. 

--> steht schon länger auf meiner Wunschliste. Hört sich sehr interessant an. Freu mich schon auf die Geschichte.


2. The Desert Spear (Demon Trilogy 2) von Peter V. Brett
 
Kurz beschreibung
The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that prey upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind half-forgotten symbols of power. Legends tell of a Deliverer: a general who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. But is the return of the Deliverer just another myth? Perhaps not. Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the desert tribes into a demon-killing army. He has proclaimed himself Shar’Dama Ka, the Deliverer, and he carries ancient weapons—a spear and a crown—that give credence to his claim. But the Northerners claim their own Deliverer: the Warded Man, a dark, forbidding figure. Once, the Shar’Dama Ka and the Warded Man were friends. Now they are fierce adversaries. Yet as old allegiances are tested and fresh alliances forged, all are unaware of the appearance of a new breed of demon, more intelligent—and deadly—than any that have come before.

--> Teil 1 hat mir letztens schon so gut gefallen. Teil 2 war ein Muss! Freue mich schon wieder auf Arlen und co.


So und jetzt werde ich mal wieder mehr posten..
