Rising Magic

Superordinary Society | Book Two

Superordinary Society: Book Two

Even as a baby mage, Dash Mercury dreamed of going to Arcantaria, the barely whispered about school for superwizards. When he’s invited at eighteen, making him the youngest student in Arcantaria history, Dash is less excited because he has to leave behind the only good friends he’s ever had—Carla, BeBop, Khadija, Fatima, and most of all, the guy he loves, werewolf mage Jazz Vanessen. At Arcantaria, the other students treat Dash like dirt until he manages to join the exclusive Olympus Club… a group with an agenda. A scary one.

No one—not even the students—knows where Arcantaria is located, so Jazz is desperate when he picks up danger vibes from Dash. He and his friends set out to find the school and break in. When they realize what the club is training Dash to do—and the dire consequences if he succeeds—they know the human race is in danger, and they’ll have to step up and save it.

But first they have to save themselves.

Essere amati da un drago significa essere trattati come un tesoro inestimabile.

Cento anni fa, l’Alfa Montgomery, spinto dalla disperazione, ha scelto di correre un rischio: ha preso in prestito dei soldi dall’antico drago Warwick Ehecatl, lasciando come garanzia le terre del branco. Ora è arrivato il momento di pagare il debito, e i draghi non dimenticano… né perdonano. Warwick esige come risarcimento il figlio di Montgomery, Avery, e tre delle sue attività commerciali. Avery è un Omega e sa di essere praticamente inutile al branco, quindi potrebbe anche accettare, ma ha dei ripensamenti: il suo futuro compagno è terrificante, e sarebbe libero di fare di lui ciò che vuole.

Warwick è consapevole della reputazione della sua razza, ed è persino disposto ad ammettere che in parte sia meritata, ma preferirebbe tagliarsi la coda piuttosto che smorzare la luce negli occhi innocenti del compagno. Non sarà semplice, ma c’è qualcosa tra loro che ribolle sotto la superficie e che vale la pena di proteggere.

But when the priest has a crisis of conscience, Girik offers his help to untangle a web of lies—even if it means getting closer than he ever imagined and committing sacrilege in the process.

With a monster lurking in the forest, a wandering mage mysteriously appearing, and more secrets awakening to unravel the truths of their world, Tas and Girik must make grave decisions. A life without danger seems a far-off hope, but love just might be theirs… if they survive.

Benvenuti al Dim Sum Asylum, il Manicomio dei Dim Sum, in una San Francisco dove un caso è noioso e banale quando la polizia deve inseguire una statuetta alta mezzo metro con degli impressionanti baffi alla Fu Manchu, che è scomparsa da un santuario e se ne corre in giro per Chinatown lasciandosi dietro una scia di magia sessuale e caos.

Roku MacCormick, ispettore della divisione Crimini Arcani di Chinatown, deve affrontare una quantità di sfide che vanno ben al di là del suo retaggio umano-faerie, dei draghi ringhianti che stanno a guardia dei portali di C-Town e dell’esplosione di una fabbrica di noodle. Infatti, oltre alle interferenze di una famiglia mafiosa che vuole tenere a distanza e a un serial killer esperto di incantesimi che deve assolutamente trovare, dopo un caso andato a rotoli, a Roku tocca accollarsi Trent Leonard, un nuovo partner di cui non si può ancora fidare.

Anche se preferirebbe restarsene a casa con Bob the Cat a riempirsi di whiskey fino ad addormentarsi, ogni giorno Roku indossa distintivo e pistola, deciso a servire e proteggere la città che ama. Quando l’oscuro e sotterraneo mondo magico di Chinatown rende la sua vita un inferno e il caso su cui lavora si rivela letale, è Trent che bada a coprirgli le spalle e, a detta del suo nuovo partner, anche a guarire il suo cuore. Per Roku, però, Trent è pericoloso quanto i mostri e i criminali che hanno giurato di abbattere.

The queen has become a ruthless tyrant, punishing any who oppose her, weakening the kingdom’s defenses against the brutal Henerans. To survive, Hunter must depend on the man who robbed him, a handsome former spy named Dax, now a leader of the resistance that believes the queen is an imposter—a Heneran disguised by magic… who also looks identical to Hunter’s mother. 

There’s no love lost between Hunter and Dax, and even if Hunter grudgingly agrees with the resistance, he just wants to reclaim his property and go home. But he might be the only one who can oppose the queen and end her reign of terror.

It’s not easy being someone’s fairy tale.

Leigh Hurley is making a name for himself among thieves and criminals, even if it isn’t the life he would’ve chosen. He shouldn’t have screwed over the Moretti brothers, though. It landed him in the river with weights on his feet. But somehow he’s escaped certain death. The last thing he remembers before waking on the riverbank is a beautiful face and a soft kiss.

Then, Tolomeo turns up naked at Leigh’s apartment.

Tolly comes from a race of killers—merfolk who drown humans for fun. But Tolly is different, and when he sees a human in trouble, he offers a kiss, granting the man the ability to breathe underwater… and himself the ability to walk on land, at least until the next full moon. The ancient laws state that if he is given a vow of love by the one he kissed, he will be able to keep his legs. If not, he will be put to death when he returns to the water.

But love is not something Leigh offers easily… and Tolly has a secret of his own.

Chasser les corbeaux

Un hiver de loup

Lorsque l’hiver s’abattra, les Loups franchiront le mur et dévoreront les petits garçons dans leur lit.

Le Dr Nicholas Blake a beau avoir peur du noir, il sait que les histoires de monstres racontées par sa grand-mère pour le tourmenter durant son enfance ne sont pas réelles. 

Ou du moins, il le pensait… avant de voir la mer geler, le pays être paralysé par la neige, et de trouver un homme à l’agonie, se vidant de son sang sous le regard d’une étrange femme morte. À présent, ses cauchemars empiètent sur sa vie et seul son patient imprévu semble connaître le fin mot de l’histoire. 

Pour Gregor, la situation est simple : ces traîtres de prophètes l’ont mutilé et lui ont volé son frère, Jack, et il compte bien les faire payer. Sans son loup, la tâche s’avérera difficile, mais jamais il ne laisserait quelqu’un d’autre tuer son jumeau à sa place, même s’il doit quémander de l’aide auprès de son médecin très attirant, mais trop humain.

Cependant, peut-être les prophètes visent-ils un but pire que la mort, et peut-être Nick s’avère-t-il moins humain qu’il le pense ? À mesure que les cadavres s’entassent et que les vieilles histoires se réalisent, les deux hommes doivent se serrer les coudes pour sauver Jack et empêcher les prophètes de réveiller une chose plus terrible encore que l’hiver de loup.

Un libro della serie L'inverno dei lupi

Il mondo non finisce con uno schianto, ma con un diluvio. I tornado invadono il cuore di Londra, New York soffoca sotto un’ondata di calore che fa sciogliere persino l’asfalto, mentre la Russia congela sotto uno spesso strato di permafrost. All’inizio le persone si uniscono, paracadutando aiuti dal cielo e facendo evacuare la popolazione, ma il clima non fa che peggiorare.

A Durham, il mite professore universitario Danny Fennick si prepara ad affrontare la tempesta. È cresciuto nelle Highlands scozzesi, perciò ha già vissuto inverni rigidi in passato. Inoltre, ha un vantaggio. È un lupo mutaforma. O, per essere precisi, un cane mutaforma. Meno impressionante, ma sempre utile. 

Tuttavia gli altri lupi mutaforma non credono che quello sia un inverno qualsiasi e stanno attraversando il Vallo per marcare il loro nuovo territorio. Tra loro ci sono l’ex di Danny, Jack, Principe Ereditario del branco del Numitor, inseguito dal fratello che vuole ucciderlo. 

L’inverno dei lupi non è bianco. È rosso come il sangue.
