Lex Trent Versus the Gods - Alex Bell
Cheats never prosper. At least that’s what everyone else would have you believe. But Lex Trent knows better. Lex knows that, with a bit of luck, the quickest route to success is a lie, swindle and cheat all the way to the top.
Unfortunately Lex has taken his scams a step too far… Rather than see his neck in a noose, he’s forced to go on the run in a world of irritable Gods, fearsome magicians and strange beasts.
But luck is still on his side, just.
The Gods’ favourite pastime is The Games… and Lex has just become one of the human playing pieces. With fame, glory and untold wealth at stake, Lex isn’t going to lose (especially as that so often means dying) - in fact, he fully intends to beat the Gods at their own game.
Thanks to Headline for a copy of this to review.
Sea Glass - Maria V. Snyder (signed)
Her abilities remained hidden - until challenged by enemy forces.
Student glass magician Opal Cowan’s newfound skills to steal a magician’s strength make her too powerful.
Kept under house arrest, Opal dares defy her imprisonment to search for Ulrik, the man she thinks she loves. Thinks because she is sure another man - now her prisoner - has switched souls with Ulrick.
In hostile territory, without proof or allies, Opal isn’t sure whom to trust. And now everyone is after Opal’s special powers for their own deadly gain…
I managed to pick this up at Maria’s signing on Thursday, so I’m very excited to start the trilogy after hearing Maria read a section. A full signing report will be up Monday.
Undead Much? - Stacey Jay
Q: How many guys does it take to make your boyfriend wild with jealousy?
A: Only one, if he’s undead.
Megan Berry had a perfectly average new-sindress-and-boy-obsessed life - until her power to settle the Undead returned. Oh, and her best friend tried to kill her - and ruin homecoming - with a bunch of black magically raised zombies. At least she got a spot on the pom squad and a smoking’ boyfriend (Ethan). But now Megan is in deep fertilizer all over again. Why? Well, let’s see…
- Feral new super-strong zombies? Check.
- Cheerleader vs. pom squad turf war threatening the end of the half time as we know it? Check.
- An Undead psychic hottie (Cliff) who’s predicting a zombie apocalypse - and doing his best to tempt megan away from Ethan? Check. - Earth-shattering secrets that could land Megan in Settler prison for life. Um…It wasn’t me!!
Everyone thinks Megan’s at fault for the new uber-zombie uprising. Looks like she’ll need the help of both Cliff and Ethan if she’s going to prove her innocence before it’s too late.
So excited for the one! I loved You Are So Undead to Me.
