Beneath the ice, Yaz will learn that Abeth is older and stranger than she had ever imagined.  She will learn that her weaknesses are another kind of strength.

One Word Kill

Author: Mark Lawrence Narrator: Matthew Frow Release Date: May 2019

Ready Player One meets Stranger Things in this new novel by the bestselling author who George RR Martin describes as “an excellent writer.” In January 1986, fifteen-year-old boy-genius Nick Hayes discovers he’s dying. And it isn’t even the strangest thing to happen to him that week. Nick and his Dungeons & Dragons-playing friends are used to living in their imaginations. But when a new girl, Mia, joins the group and reality becomes weirder than the fantasy world they visit in their weekly games, none of them are prepared for what comes next. A strange—yet curiously familiar—man is following Nick, with abilities that just shouldn’t exist. And this man bears a cryptic message: Mia’s in grave danger, though she doesn’t know it yet. She needs Nick’s help—now. He finds himself in a race against time to unravel an impossible mystery and save the girl. And all that stands in his way is a probably terminal disease, a knife-wielding maniac and the laws of physics. Challenge accepted.

Limited Wish

Author: Mark Lawrence Narrator: Matthew Frow Release Date: May 2019

One choice. Two possible timelines. And a world hanging in the balance. It’s the summer of 1986 and reluctant prodigy Nick Hayes is a student at Cambridge University, working with world-renowned mathematician Professor Halligan. He just wants to be a regular student, but regular isn’t really an option for a boy-genius cancer survivor who’s already dabbled in time travel. When he crosses paths with a mysterious yet curiously familiar girl, Nick discovers that creases have appeared in the fabric of time, and that he is at the centre of the disruption. Only Nick can resolve this time paradox before the damage becomes catastrophic for both him and the future of the world. Time is running out—literally. Wrapped up with him in this potentially apocalyptic scenario are his ex-girlfriend, Mia, and fellow student Helen. Facing the world-ending chaos of a split in time, Nick must act fast and make the choice of a lifetime—or lifetimes. Game on.

Nona Grey's story reaches its shattering conclusion in the third instalment of Book of the Ancestor. THEY CAME AGAINST HER AS A CHILD. NOW THEY FACE THE WOMAN.

The shiphearts offer strength that she might use to protect those she loves, but it's a power that corrupts. A final battle is coming in which she will be torn between friends, unable to save them all. A battle in which her own demons will try to unmake her. A battle in which hearts will be broken, lovers lost, thrones burned. HOLY SISTER completes the Book of the Ancestor trilogy that began with RED SISTER and GREY SISTER.

Waffenschwestern - Das erste Buch des Ahnen - Das Buch des Ahnen, Band 1 (Ungekürzt)

Author: Mark Lawrence Narrator: Stephanie Preis Release Date: January 2019

Nona ist kein gewöhnliches Kind: Sie hat auffällig schwarze Augen und schwarze Haare und kann sich mit übernatürlicher Geschwindigkeit bewegen. Und sie ist erst acht, als sie ihren ersten Mord begeht. Nona steht schon im Schatten des Galgens, als sie von der Äbtissin des Klosters zur barmherzigen Gnade gerettet wird, wo sie man sie zur Kriegerin ausbildet. Doch der Mann, den sie getötet hat, gehörte einer der mächtigsten Familien des Reiches an - die alles daransetzt, sich an ihr und den Schwestern des Konvents zu rächen. Allerdings ist Nona alles andere als leichte Beute. Im Kloster zur barmherzigen Gnade leben Mystikerinnen, die das Gewebe der Welt manipulieren, Schwestern der Verschwiegenheit, die sich der Kunst der Täuschung widmen, und hier werden die gefährlichsten Kriegerinnen des Reiches ausgebildet. Nona durchläuft ein rigides Trainingsprogramm, das sie mit dem mystischen Pfad vertraut macht, den geheimen Künsten des geräuschlosen Tötens und der Fähigkeit, mit den verschiedensten Waffen zu kämpfen. Mit den anderen Novizinnen ist sie in Freundschaft und Liebe - und manchmal auch leidenschaftlichem Hass - verbunden. Nicht alle werden es schaffen, aber diejenigen, die ihren Weg bis zu Ende gehen, werden Teil der Schwesternschaft. Sie werden die gefährlichsten Klingen des Reiches, sie werden Waffenschwestern sein.
