DIE MITTE VON Nirgendwo ist gerade um Einiges interessanter geworden! Marsha, oder M, wie sie von ihren wenigen Freunden genannt wird, Streberin in Astronomie, war in keinster Weise jemals etwas Besonderes. Als Kleinkind verwaist und aufgezogen von einer überaus strengen „Tante“, weiß sie nicht einmal so genau, wer sie eigentlich ist. M träumt davon, Jewel, einer Kleinstadt in Indiana, eines Tages entfliehen zu können, jedoch scheint es ein fast unerreichbares Ziel zu sein, sich eine vielversprechende Zukunft aufzubauen – bis sich der neue, süße Quarterback Rigel unerklärlicherweise mit ihr anfreundet. Während Rigel hübschen Cheerleadern den Rücken kehrt, um mehr Zeit mit M zu verbringen, geschehen plötzlich merkwürdige Dinge: Ihre Akne verschwindet, ihre Kurzsichtigkeit nimmt ab, bis sie schließlich überhaupt keine Brille mehr braucht; und wenn sich die beiden berühren, sprühen im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes Funken! Als M nach Erklärungen dafür sucht, kommt sie einem wohlbehüteten Geheimnis auf die Spur, das ihr bisheriges langweiliges Leben für immer verändern soll … und sie Gefahren aussetzt, die selbst ihre Vorstellungskraft überschreiten. Buch 1 der preisgekrönten Starstruck-Serie, in der Teenager-Romantik mit Science-Fiction verschmilzt und den jungen Leser in eine völlig neue Welt voller Action, Abenteuer und Entdeckungen entführt!

The Games are Forever! It's one thing to Qualify and Compete… Now she must Win. Gwen Lark, nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl, is among the lucky ones. She's one of several million teenage refugees to escape the extinction-level asteroid barreling towards Earth and reach the ancient colony planet of Atlantis. But Atlantis is a strange new world with higher gravity and a blazing white sun, where nothing is as expected. The new arrivals from Earth will now belong to the majority class of non-citizens who face a lifetime of hard work and limited rights. To make matters worse, Gwen's rare and powerful talent, her Logos voice, is viewed as a potential weapon to be exploited by the Imperator, as well as a threat to the Kassiopei Imperial Dynasty and its uncompromising control over the people of Atlantis. A last-minute heartbreak prior to arrival turns to joy, when Gwen receives a declaration of love from an unexpected source. The Wedding date is set, but before she can be joined with her true love, she is forced to compete in the brutal and deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail to save herself, her family, friends, and everything she cares about. Once again, her intelligence, quick thinking skills, resilience, and creativity are challenged to the breaking point. The Games are monumental, intricate, lethal . . . and the Games are Forever. This time Gwen must fight and figure her way through the most difficult and sophisticated contest she has ever faced. Terrifying Ordeals and impossible Challenges, ruthless skilled Competitors, vicious secret assassins, and dubious teammates she must work with but cannot trust, are just the beginning. . . . Meanwhile, as the Games rage, the fate of two worlds is at stake as a new alien threat looms over Earth and Atlantis. But Gwen Lark has a secret weapon of her own. It's not her Logos voice and its untapped power to control orichalcum technology and perpetuate change. It is Gwen herself. WIN is the third book in The Atlantis Grail series.

Als sich ihr eines Tages die Chance auf einen ebenso lukrativen wie illegalen Auftrag bietet, greift Jazz zu.

Contains the following complete novels: - Cobweb Bride (Book One) - Cobweb Empire (Book Two) - Cobweb Forest (Book Three) Praise for Cobweb Bride ". . . Nazarian writes clean and true prose . . ." —Publishers Weekly "Set in an alternate Renaissance Europe, this series opener by Russian-born Nazarian combines the stylistic manner of a folktale with the trappings of an epic fantasy, one driven by compassion rather than heroics. . . . Fans of period fantasy and those who like stories that feel like fairy tales should appreciate this skillful novel by the twice Nebula Award-nominated author of Dreams of the Compass Rose and The Duke in His Castle." —Library Journal "I really enjoyed the rich, complex and highly unusual storytelling in the Cobweb Bride. Nazarian does an excellent job of painting the Renaissance world of her alternate reality and bringing in interesting twists of fantasy to the story. . . . Everything about this story that was fresh and new. I loved the premise it was built on and I loved the story itself. The characters are rich, multi-dimensional, and so easy to get to know and identify with. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy when it comes out and in finding out more about what happens to the characters that still have a mission to carry out and how the story eventually resolves by the end of the trilogy. I recommend this book to readers of YA, lovers of fantasy, alternate-history, and alternate-reality. It was a terrific read." —Tracy M. Riva, Midwest Book Review "Cobweb Bride is astonishing and captivating; a lush fantasy of imagery and magical realism. The visuals are illustrated by the author's lyrical and metaphoric writing. Every chapter and scene revels in this mortal coil, surrounded by an expansive collage of characters immersed in a plot as rich and decadent as a Verdi opera. . . . The vibrancy of Ms. Nazarian's writing is sheer kaleidoscopic visualization. The folkloric-fable twists and turns recount shavings from the mythos of Hades and Persephone without boring you with a full-blown serving of predictability. The romance is as subtle as it is grim, with glimmers of hope taking us further to our doom—perhaps. . . . The overall tone is introspective, hauntingly quiet with elements of horror-fantasy that are as provocative as the works of Tanith Lee and Storm Constantine." —Patrice, Romantic Historical Reviews, a 5-Star Top Pick Many are called... She alone can save the world and become Death's bride. COBWEB BRIDE is a history-flavored fantasy novel with romantic elements of the Persephone myth, about Death's ultimatum to the world.
