Fremtidige favoritter #5: Oppfølgerversjonen

Bokelskerinnen har en ukentlig spalte kalt Fremtidige favoritter, hvor hun skriver litt om bøker hun ønsker seg, gleder seg til å lese og er spent på. Denne uken er det oppfølgere man gleder seg til å lese, det kan derfor være spoilere for foregående bøker i seriene.

Days of Blood and Starlight av Laini Taylor (06.11.12) er oppfølgeren til Daughter of Smoke and Bone, en av favorittbøkene mine fra i fjor.

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.



The Evolution of Mara Dyer av Michelle Hodkin (23.10.12). The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer sluttet på en skikkelig cliffhanger og med mye oppe i lufta, jeg ser fram til hvordan Hodkin tar historien om Mara videre.

Two days after Mara walks into a police station in Miami at the close of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, she is committed for psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe is a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But she's about to discover that the price is more than she can bear.



The Crimson Crown av Cinda Williams Chima (23.10.12). Gleder meg, gleder meg, gleder meg! Jeg oppdaget Seven Realms-serien i fjor og forelsket meg helt i bøkene (min omtale av The Demon King).


A thousand years ago, two young lovers were betrayed — Alger Waterlow to his death, and Hanalea, Queen of the Fells, to a life without love.

Now, once again, the queendom of the Fells seems likely to shatter apart. For young queen Raisa ana’Marianna, maintaining peace even within her own castle walls is nearly impossible. Tension between wizards and Clan has reached a fevered pitch. With surrounding kingdoms seeking to prey on the Fells’ inner turmoil, Raisa’s best hope is to unite her people against a common enemy. But that enemy might be the person with whom she’s falling in love.

Navigating the cutthroat world of blueblood politics has never been more dangerous, and former streetlord Han Alister seems to inspire hostility among Clan and wizards alike. His only ally is the queen, and despite the perils involved, Han finds it impossible to ignore his feelings for Raisa. Before long, Han finds himself in possession of a secret believed to be lost to history, a discovery powerful enough to unite the people of the Fells. But will the secret die with him before he can use it?

A simple, devastating truth concealed by a thousand-year-old lie at last comes to light in this stunning conclusion to the Seven Realms series

The Crown of Embers av Rae Carson (18.09.12). Elisa var en positiv overraskelse for meg i fjor. Her var en heltinne som startet historien med lite tillitt til seg selv og sin verdi, men som gjennom eget arbeid, intelligens og økende bevissthet om verden rundt seg gjorde seg selv sterkere og ble en leder menneskene rundt hadde lyst til å følge. Noe av det beste med denne endringen i Elisa var at det ikke skjedde over natten, det tok tid og hjelp fra menneskene rundt henne.


In the sequel to the acclaimed The Girl of Fire and Thorns, a seventeen-year-old princess turned war queen faces sorcery, adventure, untold power, and romance as she fulfills her epic destiny.

Elisa is the hero of her country. She led her people to victory against a terrifying enemy, and now she is their queen. But she is only seventeen years old. Her rivals may have simply retreated, choosing stealth over battle. And no one within her court trusts her-except Hector, the commander of the royal guard, and her companions. As the country begins to crumble beneath her and her enemies emerge from the shadows, Elisa will take another journey. With a one-eyed warrior, a loyal friend, an enemy defector, and the man she is falling in love with, Elisa crosses the ocean in search of the perilous, uncharted, and mythical source of the Godstone's power. That is not all she finds. A breathtaking, romantic, and dangerous second volume in the Fire and Thorns trilogy

    1. Det er bare å telle dagene. :) Har du lest Lips Touch Three Times av Laini Taylor? Kan se noen av de samme ideene der, spesielt i den siste novella, som i Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

  3. Jeg har også Days of Blood and Starlight og The Evolution of Mara Dyer på min Fremtidige Favoritter- liste :-D. The Demon King var jeg så heldig å vinne hos deg, så den skal jeg få lest i sommer (det er planen).

    Ønsker deg en flott pinsehelg, Ann Kristin :-)
