Omslagtekst:
Sinds Liv Silber met haar moeder en zusje naar Londen is verhuisd, droomt ze nogal vreemd. Lange gangen met versierde deuren, in raadsels sprekende standbeelden, de nanny die haar achtervolgt met een bijl… Liv droomt zelfs over een kerkhof, waar ze midden in de nacht vier jongens allerlei mysterieuze rituelen ziet uitvoeren. Nog vreemder wordt het als de jongens echt blijken te bestaan. En het allervreemdst is misschien wel dat ze dingen over Liv weten die alleen in haar dromen voorkomen. En dat is nog maar het begin…

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents’ invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions.

Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared.

The second book in the Firebird trilogy, Ten Thousand Skies Above You features Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.

Omslagtekst:
The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it “a deadpan epic.”

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are.

But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona’s powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

Showcase Sunday (boekenfestijn haul)

ShowcaseHoi allemaal! Het is zondag, dus tijd voor een showcase! Nu, ik mocht eigenlijk geen boeken meer kopen, maar het was boekenfestijn in Nieuwegein en ik moest er echt even uit. Ik heb de afgelopen week sollicitaties gedaan bij een super mega awesome baan en nadat ik woensdag de hele dag in spanning heb gezeten, besloot ik donderdag dat ik iets moest gaan doen om mezelf af te leiden. Ik heb wat mooie boeken gevonden maar ik heb mezelf wel kunnen inhouden.
Oh en de baan, die heb ik gekregen! Ik ben er super blij mee! Ik ga jullie later nog wat meer erover vertellen, maar nu moet ik snel de boeken laten zien, voor ik naar mijn andere baan toe moet. Druk, druk!
