Spirit Bound, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 5)

Présentation de l'éditeur Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong… After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere. She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true.... [Lire la suite]

Blood Promise, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 4)

Présentation de l'éditeur The recent attack on St. Vladimir's Academy devastated the entire Moroi world. Many are dead. And, for the few victims carried off by Strigoi, their fates are even worse. A rare tattoo now adorns Rose's neck, a mark that says she's killed far too many Strigoi to count. But only one victim matters . . . Dimitri Belikov. Rose must now choose one of two very different paths: honoring her life's vow to protect Lissa—her best friend and the last surviving Dragomir princess—or, dropping out of the Academy to...

Shadow Kiss, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 3)

Présentation de l'éditeur It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all...might be seeing ghosts. As Rose questions her sanity, new complications arise. Lissa has begun experimenting with her magic once more, their enemy Victor Dashkov might be set free, and Rose's forbidden relationship with Dimitri is starting to heat up again. But when a deadly...

Frostbite, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 2)

Présentation de l'éditeur Rose Hathaway's got serious guy trouble.  Her gorgeous tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian.  (So not cool). Then a massive Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir's on high alert, and the Academy crawls with Guardians--including the legendary Janine Hathaway...Rose's formidable, long-absent mother.  The Strigoi are closing in, and the...

The Maze Runner, James Dashner

Présentation de l'éditeur Life has made a very confusing turn for Thomas.  The moment he wakes up in the lift, he doesn’t know his name, his purpose, or where he is.  His mind is a slate wiped clean.  At least he’s not alone.  For as he climbs from the lift, boys of every size, shape and age surround him and welcome him to the Glade – a large, self-sufficient expanse surrounded by tall, stone, imposing walls, and, a maze.  Like Thomas, the other boys don’t know why they are in the Glade, they are simply...

Vampire Academy, Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy 1)

    Présentation de l'éditeur   St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school–it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's–the very place where they're most in danger. Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and... [Lire la suite]

Fallen, Lauren Kate

Présentation de l'éditeur There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori. Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move. Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it... [Lire la suite]

Stolen, Lucy Christopher

Présentation de l'éditeur In a moving letter to her captor, sixteen-year-old Gemma relives her kidnapping from Bangkok airport while on holiday. Taken by Ty, her troubled young stalker, to the wild and desolate Australian Outback she reflects on a landscape from which there’s no escape. In a story of survival, passion and darkness, Gemma reveals how she had to deal with the nightmare, or die trying to fight it. Mon avis Gemma, une anglaise de 16 ans, est en transit avec ses parents à l'aéroport de Bangkok, et va se... [Lire la suite]

Bloom, Elizabeth Scott

Présentation de l'éditeur Lauren has a good life: decent grades, great friends, and a boyfriend every girl wants. So why is she so unhappy? It takes the arrival of Evan Kirkland for Lauren to figure out the answer: she’s been holding back. She’s been denying herself a bunch of things (like sex) because staying with her loyal and gorgeous boyfriend, Dave, is the “right” thing to do. After all, who would give up the perfect guy? But as Dave starts talking more and more about their life together, planning a future Lauren... [Lire la suite]

I heart you, you haunt me, Lisa Schroeder

Présentation de l'éditeur Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl gets boy back... ...sort of. Ava can't see him or touch him, unless she's dreaming. She can't hear his voice, except for the faint whispers in her mind. Most would think she's crazy, but she knows he's here. Jackson. The boy Ava thought she'd spend the rest of her life with. He's back from the dead, as a proof that love truly knows no bounds. Mon avis J'ai découvert ce livre grâce à Clarabel qui a toujours de belles idées de lecture. Ce roman, non... [Lire la suite]
