Spindle (A Thousand Nights #2) av E.K. Johnston

The world is made safe by a woman... but it is a very big world.
  It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained.
  But the prison is crumbling. Through years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with the final blow; a curse that will cost the princess her very soul, or force her to destory her own people to save her life.
  The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled - and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.

Till minne av vår katt Simba!

6/10 2006 - 14/11 2016
I början av året fick vår katt Simba cancer och en begränsad tid att leva på. Som tur var fick vi ha en sista sommar tillsammans med honom. Men måndags den 14:e var han tyvärr tvungen att lämna oss. Det känns tungt och tomt, men nu vet vi åtminstone att han har det bra och inte behöver lida mer. Vi båda två vet i våra hjärtan att han har gått vidare till en bättre plats utan smärta.

Fate of Flames (#1) av Sarah Raughley

Four girls with the power to control the elements and save the world from a terrible evil must come together in the first epic novel in a brand-new series.
  When Phantoms - massive beasts made from nightmares and darkness - suddenly appeared and began terrorizing the world, four girls, the Effigies, each gained a unique power to control one of the classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Since then, four girls across the world have continually fought against the Phantoms, fulfilling their cosmic duty. And when one Effigy dies, another girl gains her power as a replacement.
  But now, with technologies in place to protect the world's major cities from Phantom attacks, the Effigies have stopped defending humanity and, instead, have become international celebrities, with their heroic feats ranked, televised, and talked about in online fandoms.
  Until the day that New York City's protection against Phantoms fails, a man seems to be able to control them by sheer force of will, and Maia, a high school student, unexpectedly becomes the Fire Effigy.
  Now Maia has been thrown into battle with three girls who want nothing to do with one another. But with the first human villain that the girls have ever faced, and an army of Phantoms preparing for attack, there isn't much time for the Effigies to learn how to work together.
  Can the girls take control of their destinies before the world is destroyed forever?
