  • Romeo and Juliet meets Children of the Corn in this one-of-a-kind romantic horror “When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in--blood and salt.” These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time. Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own. As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself--and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in--blood and salt. From the Hardcover edition.

  • L'annee de grace

    Liggett Kim

    Celles qui survivront ne seront plus jamais les mêmes.
    « Personne ne parle de l'année de grâce. C'est interdit.
    Nous aurions soi-disant le pouvoir d'attirer les hommes et de rendre les épouses folles de jalousie. Notre peau dégagerait l'essence pure de la jeune fille, de la femme en devenir. C'est pourquoi nous sommes bannies l'année de nos seize ans : notre magie doit se dissiper dans la nature afin que nous puissions réintégrer la communauté.
    Pourtant, je ne me sens pas magique.
    Ni puissante. » Un an d'exil en forêt.
    Un an d'épreuves.
    On ne revient pas indemne de l'année de grâce.
    Si on en revient.

    Un roman d'exception « dans la lignée de La Servante écarlate, Sa Majesté des mouches et Hunger Games. » Goodreads « Effrayant, poignant, obsédant. » Kirkus Review
