Nye bokkjøp

Det er noe eget med å gå rundt i en bokhandel. Jeg elsker lukten av nye bøker og det å bare gå rundt å kikke. Jeg bor i gokk der det er få bokhandlere. Derfor handler jeg mest bøker på nett. Men jeg savner ordentlige bokhandlere.

I helgen var jeg i Bergen og benyttet selvfølgelig sjansen til å gå i bokhandel. Jeg elsker Norli på Galleriet. Den engelske fantasyavdelingen der er relativt liten, men de to bokhyllene den består av er alltid stappfull av spennende titler. Tydelig at det er flinke folk som jobber der. Jeg skulle egentlig ikke kjøpe noe. Bare kikke litt. Men det var altfor mange fristelser. Fire bøker fikk bli med meg hjem:

Priestess of the White av Trudi Canavan

When Auraya was chosen to become a priestess, she could never have believed that a mere ten years later she would be one of the White, the gods' most powerful servants. Sadly, Auraya has little time to adapt to the exceptional powers gifted her by the gods. Mysterious black-clad sorcerers from the south plague the land, and rumours reach the White of an army being raised. Auraya and her new colleagues work tirelessly to seal alliances and unite the northern continent under their banner, but time is running out. War is coming to the lands of the White, and unless Auraya can master her new abilities, even the favour of the gods may not be enough to save them ...

Royal Exile av Fiona McIntosh

From out of the East they spread like a merciless plague -- destroying kingdom after kingdom and the sovereigns who had previously mocked the warlord Loethar and his barbarian horde. Now only one land remains unconquered -- the largest, richest, and most powerful realm of the Denova Set...Penraven. The Valisar royals of Penraven face certain death, for the savage tyrant Loethar covets what they alone possess: the fabled Valisar Enchantment, an irresistible power to coerce, which will belong to Loethar once every Valisar has been slain. But the last hope of the besieged kingdom is being sent in secret from his doomed home, in the company of a single warrior. The future of Penraven now rests on the shoulders of the young Crown Prince Leonel who, though untried and untested in the ways of war, must survive brutality and treachery in order to claim the Valisar throne.

Graceling av Kristin Cashore

In a world where people born with an exceptional skill, known as a Grace, are feared and exploited, Katsa carries the burden of a skill even she despises: the Grace of killing. She lives under the command of her Uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to carry out his dirty work, punnishing and torturing anyone who displeases him. Breaking arms and cutting off fingers are her stock-in-trade. Finding life under his rule increasingly unbearable Katsa forms an underground Council, whose purpose is to combat the destructive behaviour of the seven kings - after all, the Middluns is only one of the Seven Kingdoms, each of them ruled by their own king and his personal agenda for power. When the Council hears that the King of Liend's father has been kidnapped Katsa investigates ...and stumbles across a mystery. Who would want to kidnap him, and why? And who was the extraordinary Graced fighter who challenged her fighting skills, for the first time, as she and the Council rushed the old man to saftey? Something dark and deadly is rising in the north and creeping across the continent, and behind it all lurks the shadowy figure of a one-eyed king ...

The Final Empire av Brandon Sanderson

A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields. But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy - the magic that lies in all metals.

Jeg gleder meg til å lese disse bøkene!

  1. Gleder meg til å høre. Har lest noen bøker av Trudi Canavan tidligere. De var ok.
    Ellers lurer jeg jo på hva Brandon Sanderson får til.
