New Releases Monday #6

In this category I will publish about new books, according to Goodread.com. Meaning that I will choose a book each Monday, from the “New Releases” page @ GoodReads. I will choose random covers that speak to me, that are nice or cute, without looking at the author, genre or synopsis.

Wicked Saints

A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.

A prince in danger must decide who to trust.

A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.

Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.

In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.

It is a cold January morning and Shetland lies buried beneath a deep layer of snow. Trudging home, Fran Hunter's eye is drawn to a vivid splash of colour on the white ground, ravens circling above. It is the strangled body of her teenage neighbour Catherine Ross. As Fran opens her mouth to scream, the ravens continue their deadly dance . . .

The locals on the quiet island stubbornly focus their gaze on one man - loner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But when police insist on opening out the investigation a veil of suspicion and fear is thrown over the entire community. For the first time in years, Catherine's neighbours nervously lock their doors, whilst a killer lives on in their midst.


About the book

Raven Black is the first book in the series Shetland Island, which talks about a group of islands in the north of Scotland, full of traditions and snow.

The book begins with a curious old man who hears a knock at the door on New Year’s Eve. They are two clearly drunk girls entering their home. A few days later the body of one of the two girls is found by a woman, Fran, who has just brought her daughter Cassie to school.

The old man is immediately blamed but from the story we get that he has mental problems, moreover because some years ago he was blamed for the disappearance of another girl younger than Catherine (the dead girl) who has never been found. Is there a connection between the disappearance and the recent murder?

Dawn

Written from behind bars, DAWN is the unforgettable story collection from one of Turkey’s leading politicians, and most powerful oppositional voices.

From the dynamic political force ‘who has evoked comparisons to President Obama’ (New York Times), Selahattin Demirtaş’ stories capture the voices of ordinary people living in extraordinary times – from cleaning ladies and teenage laborers, bus drivers and factory workers, from a violent demonstration in Ankara to a five-year-old girl’s attempt to escape war-torn Syria by boat.

With Demirtaş’ trademark wit, warmth and humor, and seasoned by the vernacular of everyday speech, DAWN paints a remarkable portrait of life behind the headlines in Turkey and the Middle East – in all its hardship and adversity, freedom and hope.

  • Author: Selahattin Demirtaş
