Hetilap #5

Hogy mi is az a "Hetilap"? Úgy döntöttem, hogy mivel mostanában sok új hír jön ki, ezért minden hét vége felé - legalábbis igyekszem betartani - lesz egy úgynevezett "Hetilap" bejegyzés az azon a héten napvilágra kerülő, könyvekkel kapcsolatos hírekről, legyen az trailer, borító, megjelenés, film adaptáció vagy részlet.

A Tunnels-regénysorozat, itthon ismertebb nevén az Alagutak is jöhet a tv képernyőkre. Roderick Gordon és Brian Williams páros által írt regény filmes változatát Mikael Hafström rendezheti.

Ki ne álmodozott volna arról, hogy kincset talál a föld alatt? Vagy arról, hogy olyasmire bukkan, ami minden tekintetben egyedülálló és izgalmas? A tizennégy éves Will Burrows is erről álmodozik. Ezért minden szabad percét ásóval és lapáttal a kezében a föld alatt tölti, édesapja társaságában, aki egy napon nyomtalanul eltűnik. Will a barátjával, Chesterrel indul a keresésére, és hamarosan a föld alatt találják magukat, ahol egy sötét titokra bukkannak, amelyért akár az életüket is kockáztatnák. Sokszor halljuk a figyelmeztetést: légy óvatos, mit kívánsz, mert a végén még valóra válik. Hát Will pontosan így járt. Ám amikor az álma valóra vált, és döbbenetes felfedezést tett, mindenre számított, csak arra nem, hogy ezzel nem csak saját, hanem szerettei életét is halálos veszedelembe sodorja.

2014 Február 14 sok molynak kedvezhet, hiszen a Vámpírakadémia filmen kívül a A 20th Century Fox által felemelt The Maze Runner (Az Útvesztő) mozifilm-mely James Dashner regényén alapul- premierjét is akkorra tűzték ki.
James Dashner lélegzetelállító izgalmakkal és titkokkal átszőtt trilógiájának első kötete a Carta Young sorozat első darabja. A tudatalatti és az emlékezet különböző szintjei mindannyiunk életét befolyásolják. A szerző erre az ismerős érzésre építi Az Útvesztőt, és csalogatja a főhőst - valamint az olvasót - egy saját szabályai szerint működő másik világba, a Tisztásra, ahol a fantázia és a valóság egyszerre van jelen.

Nem csak a Delirium sorozat gazdálkodhat új főszereplővel (Gregg Sulkin - Julien, Daren Kagasoff Alex szerepében), de a Selection is úgy néz ki révbe ér. A Deadline értesülései szerint, az Izraeli színésznő Yael Grobglas szerezte meg a főszerepet, és ezzel végre el is indulhatnak a munkálatok.

Dualed (Dualed #1)
Elsie Chapman

You or your Alt? Only one will survive.
The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.
Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.
Elsie Chapman's suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.

Fragments (Partials Sequence #2)
Dan Wells
Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence--it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?

Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.

The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means--and even more important, a reason--for our survival.

The Goddess Inheritance (Goddess Test #3)
Aimee Carter
Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can't stop her--until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers #2)
 Michelle Rowen

I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

 Beauty Awakened (Angels of the Dark #2)
 Gena Showalter
His name is Koldo. He is scarred, powerful, his control legendary-and he lives only for vengeance, determined to punish the angel who viciously removed his wings. But if he yields to the forces of hatred, he will be kicked from the heavens, eternally damned.

She is his last hope. Nicola Lane was born with a defective heart, yet this fragile human shows surprising strength as demons stalk her every move, determined to end her. She is the key to Koldo's deliverance...and his downfall. Though he fights duty, destiny and his first addictive taste of desire, his toughest battle will be the one for Nicola's life-even if he has to sacrifice his own....
Lem has ethics in using his magic. Therefore Lem is hungry and broke most of the time.

Ethics in the world of blood magic, however, is a gray area. While Lemwill grift his way through life by using small glamours to make $1 bills appear as $20s, enabling him and his none-too-bright pal Mags to eat, he won’t use other people's blood to cast. Stronger spells require more blood, and hardcore magicians use Bleeders or “volunteers” to this end. Not Lem.

So when these down-and-out boon companions encounter a girl kidnapped and marked with magic rune tattoos, it’s not at all clear that they’re powerful enough to save her…or themselves. Turning to his estranged Master for help, it quickly becomes clear to Lem that not only is this beautiful, strange girl’s life all but forfeit, but that the world’s preeminent mage had big, earth-shattering plans for her—and he and Mags just got in the way.

Edge of Dawn (Midnight Breed #11)
Lara Adrian
Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.

Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.

Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

 The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2)

After her near-fatal run-in with the Jack the Ripper copycat, Rory Devereaux has been living in Bristol under the close watch of her parents. So when her therapist suddenly suggests she return to Wexford, Rory jumps at the chance. But Rory's brush with the Ripper touched her more than she thought possible: she's become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate ghosts on contact. She soon finds out that the Shades—the city's secret ghost-fighting police—are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be gone, but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening London. Rory has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something much more sinister is going on, and now she must convince the squad to listen to her before it's too late.

In this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated The Name of the Star, Maureen Johnson adds another layer of spectacularly gruesome details to the streets of London that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
