In my Mailbox # 65

Von einem Kurztrip in Wien habe ich folgende Bücher mitgenommen:

"Switched" von Amanda Hocking


"What if your entire world was built on a lie?

Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she’s not the monster her mother claims she is – she does feel that she doesn’t quite fit in...

She’s bored and frustrated by her small town life – and then there’s the secret that she can’t tell anyone. Her mysterious ability – she can influence people’s decisions, without knowing how, or why...

When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night – her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist. Förening, the home of the Trylle.

Finally everything makes sense. Among the Trylle, Wendy is not just different, but special. But what marks her out as chosen for greatness in this world also places her in grave danger. With everything around her changing, Finn is the only person she can trust. But dark forces are conspiring – not only to separate them, but to see the downfall everything that Wendy cares about.

The fate of Förening rests in Wendy’s hands, and the decisions she and Finn make could change all their lives forever..."

"Steampunk - An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories" von Kelly Link und Gavin J. Grant


In the first major YA steampunk anthology, fourteen top storytellers push the genre's mix of sci-fi, fantasy, history, and adventure in fascinating new directions.

Imagine an alternate universe where romance and technology reign. Where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Here, fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, embrace the steampunk genre's established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings as diverse as Appalachia, Ancient Rome, future Australia, and alternate California. The result is an anthology that defies its genre even as it defines it.

Außerdem noch die Malfuria - Trilogie von Christoph Marzi um preiswerte 20 Euro

Rückentext von Teil 1 "Malfuria - Das Geheimnis der Singenden Stadt": 

Inmitten der verschlungenen Gassen von Barcelona lebt Catalina Soleado bei einem alten Kartenmacher. Ein gewöhnliches Mädchen glaubt sie zu sein, doch eines Tages bringt ein fliegendes Schiff die Schatten in die singende Stadt. Unheimliche Gestalten machen Jagd auf das Mädchen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Gefährten Jordi Mari beginnt für Catalina eine abenteuerliche Flucht. In die Bibliothek der lebenden Geschichten, durch die Katakomben der Stadt bis zur Sagrada Familia führt ihre verzweifelte Suche nach Antworten. Erst dort entdecken sie das Geheimnis, das Catalina umgibt, das Geheimnis von Malfuria.
