In My Mailbox (9)

In My Mailbox is a weekly post created by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie!! (This post was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.)

Bought
 The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
Synopsis (Third book in Darkest Powers Trilogy)
The nail-biting climax to Kelley Armstrong's bestselling YA series.Chloe Saunders is fifteen and would love to be normal. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. First of all, she happens to be a genetically engineered necromancer who can raise the dead without even trying. She and her equally gifted (or should that be 'cursed'?) friends are on the run from the evil corporation who created them. To top it all, Chloe is struggling with her feelings for Simon, a sweet-tempered sorcerer, and his brother Derek, a not so sweet-tempered werewolf. And she has a horrible feeling she's leaning towards the werewolf. Definitely not normal...

 The Book of Lies by James Moloney
Synopsis (Book 1)
Three children, Marcel, Nicola and Fergus, have been left mysteriously in an orphanage run by the kindly Mrs Timmins, but overseen by the fearsome wizard Lord Alwyn and his creature Termagant.
Marcel learns that the mysterious Book of Lies can tell hood from truth. But can it tell him who he really is? He is not alone in his confusion, either. When the stranger Starkey arrives, Marcel, the haughty Nicola and battle-obsessed Fergus discover that they have a vital part to play in saving the kingdom from evil.
But something′s not right. Is Starkey friend or foe? And is Lord Alwyn the evil wizard the children first thought? And will the truth really be revealed in the pages of the Book of Lies?

  5. Love the little kangaroo book, looks cute :-)

    I'm a huge Kelley Armstrong fan, read her Otherworld and Nadia Stafford series, but haven't read her YA series yet. IS it as good as her adult ones? The covers look fantastic!

    You can see what I got here.

    Have a great Sunday and happy reading! :-)
