Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (#1) av Rosamund Hodge

When the mysterious fog of the Ruining crept over the world, the living died and the dead rose. Only the walled city of Viyara was left untouched.
  The heirs of the city's most powerful - and warring - families, Mahyanai Romeo and Juliet Catresou share a love deeper than duty, honor, even life itself. But the magic laid on Juliet at birth compels her to punish the enemies of her clan - and Romeo has just killed her cousin Tybalt. Which means he must die.
  Paris Catresou has always wanted to serve his family by guarding Juliet. But when his ward tries to escape her fate, magic goes terribly wrong - killing her and leaving Paris bound to Romeo. If he wants to discover the truth of what happened, Paris must delve deep into the city, ally with his worst enemy... and perhaps turn against his own clan.
  Mahyanai Runajo just wants to protect her city - but she's the only one who believes it's in peril. In her desperate hunt for information, she accidentally pulls Juliet from the mouth of death - and finds herself bound to the bitter, angry girl. Runajo quickly discovers Juliet might be the one person who can help her recover the secrets to saving Vivara.
  Both pairs will find friendship where they least expect it. Both will find that Viyara holds more secrets and dangers than anyone ever expected. And outside the walls, death is waiting...

Uppstigandets Brunn (Mistborn #2, 1/2) av Brandon Sanderson

Ondskan är besegrad. Men kriget har börjat.
  De gjorde det omöjliga: de lyckades övervinna den gudlika varelse vars brutala regim hade pågått i tusen år. Nu måste Vin - tjejen från gatugänget som blivit landets mäktigaste dimfödde - och Elend Venture, den idealistiske unge adelsmannen som är förälskad i henne, bygga upp ett nytt fungerande samhälle i askan efter imperiet.
  De har knappt hunnit börja då tre separata arméer går till anfall. När belägringen intensifieras tycks en uråldrig legend erbjuda en glimt av hopp. Men även om den existerar, så är det ingen som vet hur man hittar Uppstigandets brunn, eller vilken sorts kraft den består en med.
  Dödandet av Överstehärskaren visar sig ha varit den lättare delen. Att överleva i svallvågorna efter hans fall kommer att bli den verkliga utmaningen.

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1) av Kendare Blake

Every generation on the island of Feenbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomacache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest lions.
  But becoming the Queen Crowned isn't solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it's not just a game of win or lose... it's life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.
  If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arisone, no matter how hard she tries, can't make even a weed grow. The two queens have been shamefully faking their powers, taking care to keep each other, the island, and their powerful sister Mirabella none the wiser. But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens' every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest... but she may be the darkest.

Rebecca recenserar: Arvet efter dig

Titel: Arvet efter dig
Författare: Jojo Moyes
Förlag: Printz Publishing
Rec-ex/serie/gåva: Nej
Sidor: 403
Serie: Livet efter dig #2
Utläst: 12/6-16

Bokens första mening: Den storvuxne mannen längst ner vid bardisken svettas.

Jag vill att du ska leva ett bra liv. 
Jag vill att du ska leva.
Med all min kärlek, Will
  Det har gått arton månader sedan Will Traynor valde att avsluta sitt liv på Dignitaskliniken.
  Lou Clark blev ensam kvar, och nu tampas hon med skuldkänslor över att hon inte lyckades förmå Will att fortsätta leva, samtidigt som hon själv ställs inför en hel rad nya utmaningar.
  Hon lovade Will att våga mer och leva sitt liv fullt ut. Men hur? Och om man upplevt att kärleken ibland lämnar en med outsäglig sorg och saknad, vågar man då bli kär igen?

Min åsikt:
När jag läste ut boken lämnades jag med en känsla av att jag verkligen älskade den boken, hela storyn var bara wow. Så det var med en viss skeptisk känsla som jag började läsa uppföljaren. Aldrig att den här boken kan leva upp till Livet efter dig, var min tanke. Men samtidigt var jag ändå så himla nyfiken på hur Lou skulle handskas med Wills bortgång, hur hon skulle välja att leva sitt liv och allt det där, nu när Will inte finns kvar. Och visst saknade jag lite Will i den här boken. Men om man bortser från allt detta, och börjar läsa utan en enda tanke på att första boken var himlans bra och att Will fyllde upp förra boken så bra, så går det nog fan i mig att göra en lika bra bok ändå!
   Visst, att slänga in en son i handlingen som Will inte hade en aning om fanns, var nog inte det bästa valet enligt mig, som dessutom dyker upp först när Will försvann. Men han fyller om möjligt upp lite av den delen som saknar Will och drar handlingen åt ett annat håll. Samtidigt som Lou försöker handskas med saknaden av Will så dyker Wills son upp, samtidigt som Lou går i en terapigrupp och hittar en annan man som hon börjar få tycke för. Och helt plötsligt börjar jag se på boken med andra ögon, en viss humor finns fortfarande kvar i handlingen sedan förra boken, men med nya karaktärer att bry sig om och med andra spännande saker som håller igång läsandet, griper Jojo Moyes återigen tag i läsaren och visar att visst finns det en uppföljare som kan vara lika som första boken, men på helt olika vis!
   Kort sagt, den här boken är inget som förra boken, men den är ändå så himla bra på många andra sätt, tomrummet efter Wills bortgång fylls upp av nya spännande karaktärer samt familjen Traynors sätt att handskas med sorgen samtidigt som insikten om att familjen kanske kan leva vidare ändå, med en ny familjemedlem. Om du har läst Livet efter dig, och är nyfiken på den här boken och vill läsa den, börja inte läs den med att jämföra hur boken var jämfört med denna, då kommer du bli besviken. Börja istället att läsa den som om den vore en bok i sig, och allt som hänt innan denna boken, hör till det förflutna. Då lovar jag att du inte kommer att bli besviken, för denna boken är en klass för sig själv.

Betyg: 5/5
