Omslagtekst:
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

Omslagtekst:
Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha . . . and the secrets of her heart.

Showcase

DSC07017Hoi allemaal! Misschien wat veel showcases na elkaar, maar hierna blijft het even stil, omdat ik niet van plan ben om meer boeken te kopen deze maand. Wellicht komt er nog wat aan het einde van de maand, wanneer de poëzieweek begint. Altijd een goede reden om nieuwe dichtbundels aan te schaffen!
In ieder geval, ik heb met kerst wat cadeau- en boekenbonnen gekregen waarmee ik nog wat toffe extra kerstcadeautjes voor mezelf heb uitgekozen. Nieuwsgierig geworden? Lees dan verder 🙂
