Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee. Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves her life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems.

Summary

The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne. Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army. Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives. Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction - and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for. Ruin and Rising is the thrilling final installment in Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

Summary

A Locus Award finalist! "Bardugo’s latest is a must-listen, introducing a haunting, Yale-based occult world populated with gloriously complicated characters.... A win-win-win, honestly." (Paste, best audiobooks of 2019) From number one New York Times best-selling author Leigh Bardugo comes a mesmerizing tale of power, privilege, and dark magic set among the Ivy League elite. This program includes a bonus conversation with the author. Galaxy "Alex" Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug-dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. In fact, by age 20, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most prestigious universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her? Still searching for answers, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. Their eight windowless "tombs" are the well-known haunts of the rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street’s biggest players. But their occult activities are more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. They tamper with forbidden magic. They raise the dead. And, sometimes, they prey on the living. Ninth House is the long-awaited adult debut by the beloved author of Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows. Leigh Bardugo will take her place alongside Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness as one of the finest practitioners of literary fantasy writing today.  A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books  "Ninth House is the best fantasy novel I’ve read in years, because it’s about real people. Bardugo’s imaginative reach is brilliant, and this story - full of shocks and twists - is impossible to put down." (Stephen King) "Ninth House is one of the best fantasy novels I’ve read in years. This book is brilliant, funny, raw and utterly magnificent - it's a portal to a world you’ll never want to leave." (Lev Grossman, New York Times best-selling author of The Magicians) "In this mesmerizing novel, Leigh Bardugo introduces us to Alex, a high-school dropout who gets a free ride to Yale because of a unique talent. Bardugo's New Haven is plausible and frightening, and I was one rapt reader." (Charlaine Harris, best-selling author of the True Blood series)

Surrender

Summary

"[A] riveting, and original, achievement." (WIRED) From award-winning Spanish author Ray Loriga comes a dystopian novel about authority, manipulation, and the disappearance of privacy that “calls to mind The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood [and] Blindness by José Saramago” (Alfaguara Prize Winner Citation). Ten long years have passed since war first broke out, and one couple still does not know the whereabouts of their children, or what their country is even fighting for. They follow orders and their lives go by simply, routinely, until - one day - a mute boy walks onto their property. When the authorities announce that the area needs to be evacuated and that everyone must relocate to “the transparent city”, the three leave together. At first, the city proves to be a paradise: a stunning glass dome of endless highways, buildings, trains, and markets. Everything its inhabitants need is provided to them - food, protection, shelter - and the family quickly, unquestioningly, settles into their new life. But, soon, a sinister underlay begins to emerge. Neither secrets nor walls are permitted here, and strict order, authoritarian calm, and transparency must always reign supreme. In a society in which everything private is public, the most chilling portent of our future emerges. Surrender is an urgent novel about dignity and rebellion and the lengths we go to preserve love, hope, and humanity. "Loriga envisions in this gripping tale an unsettling dystopia in which all secrets are forbidden.... This memorable page-turner will appeal to fans of Brave New World." (Publishers Weekly)

Summary

"Non sarà sempre così" dissi a me stessa. "Più tempo passerai da libera, più diventerà facile." Un giorno mi sarei svegliata da un sonno senza incubi, avrei camminato per strada senza timore. Fino a quel momento, mi tenevo stretta il mio pugnale sottile, desiderando sentire il peso sicuro dell'acciaio Grisha nella mano. Ricercata per tutto il Mare Vero, perseguitata dal senso di colpa per le vite spezzate a causa sua nella Faglia d'Ombra, Alina, la potente Evocaluce, sta cercando di ricostruirsi una vita con Mal in una terra dove nessuno è a conoscenza della sua vera identità. Tuttavia, questo dovrebbe averlo imparato, non si può sfuggire al proprio passato. Né, soprattutto, ci si può sottrarre per sempre al proprio destino. L'Oscuro infatti, che non solo è sopravvissuto alla Faglia d'Ombra ma ha acquisito anche un terrificante nuovo potere, è più determinato che mai a reclamare per sé il controllo della Grisha ribelle e a usarla per impossessarsi del trono di Ravka. Non sapendo a chi altri rivolgersi, Alina accetta l'aiuto di un alleato imprevedibile. Insieme a lui e a Mal combatterà per difendere il suo paese che, in balia della Faglia d'Ombra, di un re debole e di tiranni rapaci, sta andando rapidamente in pezzi. Per riuscirci, però, l'Evocaluce dovrà scegliere tra l'esercizio del potere e l'amore che pensava sarebbe stato sempre il suo porto sicuro. Solo lei infatti può affrontare l'imminente tempesta che sta per abbattersi su Ravka e nessuna vittoria può essere guadagnata senza sacrificio. Finché l'Oscuro vivrà - questo Alina lo sa bene - non esisterà libertà per il suo paese. Né per lei. Forse, dopo tanti tentennamenti, è infine giunto il momento di smettere di scappare e di avere paura. Costi quel che costi.
