    Din fericire,desi unele editurii nu au mai publicat cartile asa cum au promis,se pare ca Young Fiction Connection,Epica,Nemira si Rao continua sa aduca la noi in tare cele mai vandute carti din strainatate.

    Ce imi doresc eu sa citesc cel mai mult?Lista este cam lunga dar presupun ca pot sa o scurtez si sa fac un top 9.In top o sa existe si carti care nu se stie daca o sa fie publicate la noi in tara,dar care sper sa aiba macar o sansa mica.

  2. Acum ca am reusit sa postez prima recenzie din anul acesta sper ca o s-o tin asa tot anul.Cine stie poate am noroc.Avand in vedere faptul ca anul trecut am stat destul de bine la categoria Reading Challenge,mi-am propus ca anul acesta provocarea sa o setez la 200 de carti,desi pot sa trec peste.

    In anul 2016 am reusit sa-mi depasesc recordul de carti.Am ajuns de la 117 carti(atatea am citit in 2015) la 178(citite in 2016).Poate anul asta o sa ajung la 200,asa cum mi-am propus.
    Mai jos gasiti un grafic cu rating-ul si cartile citite in 2016.

    Recunosc,am avut parte de povesti incredibile care m-au fascinat complet si pe care le-as putea reciti de foarte multe ori.Daca stau bine si ma gandesc,si dupa cum se vede mai sus in poza,majoritatea cartilor au fost pe gustul meu,lucru care nu ma mira.

    Serii(cartile nu sunt aparute doar in anul 2016) pe care le recomand 100%:
    1.Tronul de Clestar de Sarah J. Maas.
    2.Frobidden Men de Linga Cage
    3. Hastag de Cambria Hebert.
    4.A Court of Thorns and Roses de Sarah J. Maas.
    5.GearShark de Cambria Hebert.
    6.The Royals de Erin Watt.
    7.Red Queen de Victoria Aveyard.
    8.Banda Celor Sase Ciori de Leigh Bardugo.

    Si cam atat!Nu am facut un top 10,insa cele de mai sus sunt recomandarile mele personale.Ar mai exista unele carti(standalone)  pe care le-as recomanda,dar majoritate sunt scrise de Colleen Hoover,asa ca mai pe scurt,va recomand sa cititi toate cartile scrise de Colleen.E uimitoare!
    Ah!Si era sa uit...Mai este Calico de Callie Hart.SI multe altele.


    Si,ca sa nu spun ca am uitat,va spun astazi:LA MULTI ANI! Si sa aveti parte de un an uimitor ,plin de surprize placut si multe bucurii alaturi de cei dragi!

  3. Labirintul nu a fost decât începutul...

    Thomas a crezut că rezolvarea Labirintului reprezintă sfârșitul cumplitei lui aventuri. A crezut că s-a terminat cu Variabilele, cu alergatul. A crezut că toți Poienarii își vor relua viețile, dar nu și-a închipuit la ce fel de existență se vor întoarce. În Labirint, viața era ușoară. Aveau mâncare, aveau un adăpost și siguranță... înainte ca Teresa să declanșeze sfârșitul. Dar, în lumea de dincolo de Labirint, sfârșitul începuse cu mult timp în urmă.

    În locul libertății sperate, Poienarii se află acum în fața unei noi încercări: ei trebuie să străbată un deșert torid, pândiți de amenințarea unor furtuni cataclismice și, mai ales, a unor ființe omenești devastate de o boală misterioasă, Arșița, care îi transformă treptat într-un soi de monștri insensibili, sălbăticiți.

    Va ține oare Thomas secretul libertății ascuns undeva în adâncul minții sale? Sau va rămâne pentru totdeauna în stăpânirea Răului?



    Cateva cuvinte inainte de recenzie:
    Si,daca tot a inceput deja un an nou,m-am gandit sa il incep cu bine,adica cu o recenzie nou.Am apucat sa recitesc cartea Incercarile Focului de James Dashner si mi-am propus sa scriu o recenzie.Nu e cine stie ce dar mi-am spus ca e okay sa scriu cateva cuvinte.

    Recenzie


    De cand am inceput sa citesc seria Labirintul am stiut ca am gasit o poveste care o sa ma fascineze si care o sa ma tina ca pe jar. Recunosc că primele doua volume le-am citit de doua ori,dar asta nu înseamnă ca nu m-au peins din prima sau ca m-am plictisit. Chiar deloc. Adevarul este ca a trebuit sa fac mici pauze si mi-a luat ceva timp pana cand am terminat acest volum. Bineinteles,am o explicație lunga si prea complicata,asa ca ma rezum sa scriu doar parerea mea despre ce s-a intamplat. Dupa tot ce s-a intamplat in primul volum,dupa Labirint si toata nebunia care a urmat,am ramas complet socata de toate obstacolele si pericolele prin care au trecut Thomas și prietenii lui. De la inceput pana la sfarsit. Au fost momente cand reciteam de vreo 2-3 ori aceasi propoziție doar ca sa fiu sigura ca am inteles bine ce citisem prima oara. M-am gandit ca a doua incercare nu o sa fie usoara si ca ceva mult mai greu o sa se intample,insa nu m-am asteptat niciodată sa citesc despre de s-a intamplat. Mi-a placut foarte mult faptul ca personajele au evoluat si ca fiecare a ajuns sa aiba un rol mai important in toata povestea. Recunosc,unele personje m-au dezamăgit,chit ca la sfarsit am aflat ce se intamplase de fapt. Ce mi-a plăcut cel mai mult? Faptul ca Thomas a evoluat extrem de mult si ca,chiar daca nu recunostea sau ca ceilalti nu au zis asta,era ca un lider pentru ceilalți, neoficial. E genul de personaj care evoluează treptat,genul care nu te va dezamagi,ci te va suprinde constant. De la început până la sfârșit a fost extraordinar si ma bucur extrem de mult ca autorul nu a decis sa strice asta. Au fost multe scene pe care le-am citit si,practic,mi-am ținut respirația.Scene care ma faceau sa ma simt de parca asteptam ceva urias sa se întâmple. Și chiar asa a fost de fiecare data,deoarece s-au întâmplat multe lucruri la care eu nu m-am asteptat. Cum ar fi,faptul ca exista inca un grup,grupup B,si tot ce s-a intamplat dupa. Sau faptul ca lumea se schimbase total si ca acea boala,Arsita,aparuse. Toate astea m-au facut nerabdatoare sa aflu ce o sa se întâmple in al treilea volum. Un lucru care mi-a mai placut a fost faptul ca prietenia dintre Thomas, Minho si Newt nu s-a schimbat și ca cei trei mereu au fost cei care au pus totul cap la cap. Au fost unele scene amuzante,exact ceea ce trebuie atunci cand vine vorba despre povesti ca aceasta. Eu tind sa cred ca daca amesteci un pic de tragedie cu un pic umor,iese totul mai fascinant. Provocarea a fost mult mai grea, dar ambitia Poenariilor a fost mai mare si mai tare. Sunt curioasa sa aflu ce provocare îi așteaptă pe Poenarii in urmatorul volum.





    Primele doua volume din seria Labirintul au fost ecranizate.Desi prefer cartile,trebuie sa recunosc faptul ca si filmele sunte destul de reusite.

  4. Cine ar fi crezut ca dupa atata timp am sa ajuns in acest moment.Mai un pic si se mai termina un an,un an care ,pot sa spun sincer,a trecut rapid.Un an in care desi am citit destul de mult,nu prea ma postat recenzii sau altceva pe blog.Trist,stiu..Well,poate intr-o buna o sa ma loveasca inspiratia ,o sa zica ceva de genul:Trezeste-te!E timpul sa mai postezi ceva si pe blogul tau.Stii tu,ala pe care il ai de cativa ani.Blogul ala pe care l-ai inceput acum cativa ani plina de inspiratie si speranta ca o sa faci ceva frumos din el.Blogul acela unde iti petreceai tot timpul,scriind recenzii si postari despre toate cartile care iti plac.''

    Inspirati-o,te astept sa ma lovesti din plin!

    Pana atunci..


    Pot sa spun ca sunt din ce in ce mai multumita cu edituriile de la noi din tara.Au inceput sa publice din nou cartile mele preferate(carti pe care le-am citit in engleza,dar care speram sa apara la noi in tara).Cartile absolut incredibile care merita citite si pe care astept cu nerabdare sa le cumpar ca sa pot sa le adaug in biblioteca mea.
    Anul acesta am citit destule serii absolut incredibile,cum ar fi Tronul de Clestar si primele doua volume din seria Regatul Spinilor si al Trandafirilor. Ambele serii sunt scrise de autoare Sarah J. Maas. Din fericire.cateva volum din seria Tronul de Clestar au fost publicata la editura Rao(luati-o ca pe o recomandare din parte mea!) ,la fel si primul volum din seria Regatul Spinilor si Al Trandafirilor.Those are a must read,guys!Pe langa cele doua serii mentionate mai sus,am avut placerea sa fac cunostiinta cu niste personaje misterioase,fermecatoare si foarte inteligente.Acele personaje le gasiti in cartea Banda Celor Sase Ciori de Leigh Bardugo(desi a aparut al doilea volum in strainatate ,astept cu nerabdare sa para si la noi in tara).

    In caz ca nu gasiti recenziile pe blog,puteti sa le gasiti pe toate pe Goodreads .

    Bineinteles.lista mea ''to-read'' este prea lunga.In fiecare zi tot adaug alte carti,insa ma tot intreb oare cand o sa le citesc pe toate?Never.

  5. “You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I’m broken beyond repair...

    ...and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me.”


    Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no? 

    Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do. 

    Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets. 

    The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming. 


    Review:


    You know how it is when you find a book and you just can't stop reading?Well,that is exactly what happened to me when i started reading Between Here and The Horizon.Honestly,when i finished reading it i was surprised because i never,not once,looked at how many pages i had to reading until it was over.I wasn't bored and it didn't drove me insane.It was pretty much exactly the kind of book that satisfies my needs and cravings.The kind of book that gives me exactly what i need;true love,ups and downs,two characters different but made for each other,two perfect little kids who have no clue what will happen to them,mystery and a lot more .

    At first i wasn't impressed with what was happening in this book.I had an epic moment of ''What the heck is happening here?Why?Who is that?..''And the story goes on.But step by step,chapter by chapter i started to realize that this story was exactly what i needed to read,exactly the kind of story i love.True love?Check.Two stubborn,impossible and perfect for each other characters?Double check.But..Besides that..Everything that happened in this book was crazy,from the beginning until the end of the book.Something you will never imagine.

    Ophelia Lang's life changes completely from the moment she met Ronan Fletcher,but somehow after that everything changes again and it gets more complicated than ever.Meeting him is just the beginning of something truely crazy and complicated,something that makes Ophelia see that her life will never be the same again.
    Sully Fletcher never thought that something good will happen to him again.Trying really hard to act like a grumpy,angry and cold-hearted man ,he tries to keep everyone away from him,especially his twin brother and his nephews.But that changes after something tragic happens and Sully is forced to do something that he never thought he'll ever do.Something that proves that he is not a cold-hearted man like everyone thought.

    You want to know the reason why i liked this story?Because even if at some point it was heartbreaking,i loved how it started to change step by step,how everything started to transform into something beautiful,the beginning of something fascinating and true.I loved the fact that i never had the chance to get bored or ,i don't know how to explain this,but while i was reading this it never crossed my mind to stop reading it.I couldn't.I was facinated and i was truely interested to know more about what would happen next.

    The whole Ronan/Sully thing was crazy,i swear!Their story was pretty intense and hard,but i got the chance to understand a lot about those two.And,honestly,now i know which one is my favorite.Yet,i hated the fact that only one brother chose to live and heal.
    Ophelia?She was something else.Subborn,determined and beautiful.I loved her attitude and the fact that even after everything that happened she never gave up on those children.

    This was something unexpected,but it was something i loved to read.

    + star.

  6. ABOUT THE BOOK



    Title:The Bachelor Auction
    Author:Rachel Van Dyken
    Series:The Bachelors of Arizona #1
    On Sale:October 4, 2016
    Publisher: Forever
    Formats: eBook
    Price: $4.99 USD (eBook)

    Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

    Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

    Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .

    THE BACHELORS OF ARIZONA

    The Bachelor Auction #1


    Sometimes,in life,something huge can happen for you..Something like a fairytale that can come true..But what if this time this fairytale is about a girl whose life wasn't good at all,a girl who transformed into Cinderella..A girl who found her prince.But what if life isn't easy at all?

    This book was good and it had an interesting story.It was a little heartbreaking ,but at the same time it was beautiful.It had a lot of ups and downs,it had a lot of bad moments where i wanted to shake some sense into the characters,because they were making me a little angry,but after all the things that happened the end of the book was perfect.

    I never thought a book can drive me nearly insane,but well,it is what it is.Why?Because there were a few character that i disliked a lot.The rest?Fun and very interesting.

    Jane's life twisted upside down from the moment her parents died and she had to take care of her two older sister.But Jane isn't treated like a sister,but like a maid,someone who was there just to take care of everything:laundry,meals,cleaning and all.But what if everything changes for her?What if life decides that Jane had enough of that ?What if Jane deserves so much more?It turns out that Cinderella finds her prince,at all costs.
    From the moments his parents died,Brock decided that he won't tell no again.Between the guilt he was feeling,his twin brothers and his grandfather,Brock never thought about his happiness or how his life should be.He did everything his grandfather wanted.He did everything for his twin brothers.But what about him ?When his grandfather decides to have an auction ,to auction Brock,Brock accepts..Why?Because Brock can't say no.Until Cinderella.

    This book was a little crazy and a bit too much for me.Why it nearly drove me insane?Because of that damn auction and because i couldn't find the truth about what was haunting the twin brothers so much.Yeah,i noticed that,even if i was focussed on Brock and Jane's love life.It seems that i'm a sucker for things like things,things that make me want to read again this book to see if i didn't see some clues about the Wellington brothers.

    I'm a big fan of knights in shining armour and all the jazz,but i almost gave up on that thought.Why?Because at first Brock wasn't how i thought he will be..And honest to God,i wanted to shake some sense in him.Yup,that changed..Really,really changed.And i'm damn happy to say this:Brock transformed and he became the knight in shining armour..The Prince.
    And Jane?I liked her and it made me sad the fact that her sisters were mean to her.But once things started to change for her ,i thought that Jane's life will start to become exactly what she deserved:Happy,a true fairytale..SOmething good.Something true.

    Brock's twin brothers?They were a mistery.Something wrapped so tight,and you could try all you want to find out what was hiding inside,but you will never succede.Why?Because the Wellington brothers were full of pain and memories that haunt them.Yet,Brant and Bentley were both charming and handsome,two boys who were trying to hide the pain behind masks.I can't wait to find more about them.

    Beautiful and interesting,a true fairytale about two haunted people ,two people who find happines when they didn't expect.

  7. Short Review:Two Graves: A Novella by Zoe Kalo

    sâmbătă, 1 octombrie 2016



    Title: Two Graves(Retribution Series #1)
    Author: Zoe Kalo
    Genre: Dark Psychological Suspense
    Audience: New Adult/Adult
    Word count: 18,000 words – 70 pages (short novella)
    Launch date: October 1st 2016

    About the Book
    A Dante-ish descent through a sinister world of decadent shadows and woeful souls…
    Seven years ago, he shattered her life. The town eventually forgot the headlines and the nightmares. But 23-year old music student Angelica hasn’t forgotten.
    For the past seven years, she’s contemplated payback with as much intensity and unwavering faith as she puts into her violin playing. Finally, all the pieces are in place. Over the course of one night, disguised for a masquerade ball, Angelica orchestrates a journey of revenge.

    Short Review:


    This book? Well,i have to admit that i was a little confused at the beginning,because i didn't understand what was happening or what this book was about. But ,step by step everything changed and i started to understand what was happening. It was fascinating and i admit that i was to intrigued,so i didn't stop reading until the end.
    I'm not a musician,i don't know much about their lifes and spectacles ,but the way a small part of a musician life was described in this book was fascinating. Yet,nothing compares with what a mother is capable of doing for her child,especially a mother whose child was taken form her.

    This short novella wasn't simple at all. It had an interesting story and good character,especially the main one,Angelica Parker. Even if i didn't have the chance to read a lot about her,she was strong and determined to get her own revenge. Talented and stubborn. Strong,but at the same time weak. A woman whose life was turned upside down.

    Too bad this wasn't a full book,because i want to know more about what happened with Angelica's child and everything else.

    Interesting and fascinating.

    Review:


    When i started reading this book i didn't know what to expect.Being the second book ,written by this author, that i've read so far,i can honestly say that it was good and that i loved how the story evolved.

    Step by step ,i started to enjoy reading about Seth and Summer,expecially because of the way things was happening between them.They were two people who never expected to meet,two people who,once the got the chance to find more about each other,started to see that maybe they were meant to be together.Yeah,it was complicated,but there were a lot of scenes that made me laugh.
    Despite everything that was happening,all the Erickson family drama and what was happening with Summer's family,i was trying to understand more about some things,things like sleepwalking and more.

    Complicated.A little confusing.Full of ups and downs..Well,a roller-coaster of crazy events.

    Summer Silva's life spinned out of control from the moment her step-sister decided to run away in Alaska.But what Summer never imagined ,when she went looking for her sister,that her life will complicate more and that she will find the truth about what really happened with her mother.Between find her sister and trying to survive,Summer finds something she never thought she will find:true love.

    Seth Erickson tries his best to forget about the past,about what happened to him and the reason why he was trying to keep everyone away from him.But it wasn't as easy as he thought.Between that and everything he cousin was trying to do to him,Seth's life complicates a little the day she met Summer Silva,the girl who walks in her sleep and the girl who makes him do the impossible.

    Caveman or not,i started to really like Seth Erickson.Even if he was way too protective and something he was acting like a lunatic,i started to understand the reason why he was doing all those things.Besides,it was pretty hilarious how Summer reacted every single time.
    And Summer?Suprise,suprise..i don't know what to say about her.She was okay,made me laugh..but i hated the fact that she was sooo stubborn.But,step by step,i started to change my opinion about her and i started to think that maybe she will do something that will make me like her.Well,it was exactly like that.

    It wasn't perfect,but it was a story about true love and about two people whose life changed when they met.Yes,there were a lot of things that made my head spin a little,things that it shouldn't have happened,but it was okay.

  9. NOTE TO READERS: "Korian and Lucy" is NOT a novel. It is a companion short story (6,000 words) to 'Daughter of the Sun' (Cult of the Cat Book 1). It is meant to be read AFTER 'Daughter of the Sun,' otherwise you won't get the full meaning or references to characters.

    It is the love story of Korian and Lucy (Trinity's parents) and takes place in The Island of Cats 17 years before the birth of Trinity. 


    Short Review:


    When i first read about Lucy in ''Daughter of The Sun'' was interested to know her story ,hers and Korian's.Why?Because from the beginning their story was fascinating and,honestly,i really wanted to know more about how Trinity's parents met and what really happened with them.

    At first i didn't know what to believe.It seemed like they were two normal teenagers who were in love,but who would have thought that something drastic will happen to them?
    Lucy was full of life,beautiful and a really interesting character.I liked her attitude and the way she was acting when she was trying to protect her love for Korian.But those chapters ,the pages from the diary,were really strange and told us what was happening in her head when she wasn't with Korian or anyone else.
    It was a little strange how everything happened,despite the love between those two,it was crystal clear that something huge was happening..Or someone was hell-bent on making Lucy's whole family believe that there was a curse.
    Korian?Like Lucy,he was full of life and an important pawn in this whole story.But i really want more.I want know what happened next with him after the accident.

    Honestly,i wish for more,because i want to read about what happened to Korian and Lucy.I want to learn more about what happened while Lucy was pregnant with Trinity.And the important thing:What happened to Korian?And did he find out about the baby?

  10. Șase proscriși periculoși
    O misiune imposibilă
    Ketterdam: un centru înfloritor al comerţului internaţional, unde poţi găsi orice dacă eşti dispus să plăteşti preţul – şi nimeni nu o ştie mai bine decât Kaz Brekker, un hoţ de geniu. Lui Kaz i se propune să dea o lovitură extrem de periculoasă, care l-ar putea face putred de bogat. Dar nu poate să acţioneze de unul singur…
    Așa că iată care este banda lui:
    Un condamnat însetat de răzbunare.
    Un trăgător împătimit de jocurile de noroc.
    Un fugar cu un trecut privilegiat.
    O spioană poreclită Fantoma.
    O Sfâşie-Inimi care îşi foloseşte puterea ca să supravieţuiască într-un cartier rău famat.
    Un hoţ cu darul evadărilor imposibile.
    Kaz şi echipa lui sunt singurii care pot împiedica distrugerea întregii lumi – dacă nu se ucid mai întâi între ei.

    Recenzie:


    ''Inima este o sageata.Are nevoie de o tinta ca sa stie unde sa se infiga.''

    Ati avut vreodata parte de acel moment in care va doriti sa dati timpul inapoi ca sa puteti citi o carte din nou pentru prima data?Ei bine,asta am patit eu dupa ce am terminat de citit cartea Banda Celor Sase Ciori de Leigh Bardugo.
    O poveste fascinanta,plina de aventuri si personaje care te vor vraji din prima secunda.Insa ceea ce te va fascina cu adevarat este felul in care ei reusesc sa puna la cale o lovitura imposibila.O lovitura imposibila din care nici unul dintre ei nu trebuia sa supravietuiasca.
    Eu?Nici macar nu stiu ce sa mai spun sau la ce sa ma mai gandesc,mai ales ca inca incerc sa procesez absolut tot ceea ce s-a intamplat.
    Adevarul este ca nu m-am asteptat sa imi placa atat de mult sau ca o sa ma fascineze felul in care a fost scrisa aceasta poveste,dar iata-ma aici incercand sa scriu o recenzie buna pentru una dintre cartile care a reusit sa ma faca sa raman fara cuvinte.Nu e nici prima, nici ultima,dar credeti-ma cand va spun ca sunt foarte putine carti care reusesc sa ma bage in aceasta stare.O stare care nu prea pot sa o descriu asa cum trebuie:ma simt de parca imi vine sa sar in sus de fericire,de parca am fost acolo prezenta la fiecare schema pe care au facut-o,dar in acelasi timp as da orice sa aflu mai multe despre fiecare in parte.Despre Kaz,Nina,Inej,Matthias,Wylan si Jesper.Despre ce o sa se intample cu ei in continuare.

    ''Un cartofor,un condamnat,un fiu rebel,o Grisha ratacita,o fata suli care devenise ucigasa si un baiat din Butoi care devenise ceva si mai rau.''

    Sa spun ca am adorat fiecare capitol ar fi prea simplu.Sa spun ca abia asteptam sa pun mana din nou pe carte ca sa aflu ce se va intampla in continuare cu cele personaje, nu cred ca ar fi mare lucru.Dar asta este adevarul si chit ca inima mea imi batea ca nebuna de fiecare data cand se intampla ceva  imposibil,aveam senzatia ca orice s-ar intampla concluzia o sa fie epica.SI asa a fost.

    Banda Celor Sase Ciori este povestea unor adolescenti a caror viata nu este tocmai usoara.Fiind obligati sa se transforme in exact ceea ce ei nu se asteptau, cei sase sunt obligati sa faca tot ceea ce pot ca sa supravietuiasca ,chiar daca asta ar insemna ca ei sa ucida,sa jefuiasca sau alte lucruri imposibile.Dar daca acest stil de viata este singurul stil care ii poate ajuta sa traiasca?Se poate numi asta viata?Ei bine,in aceasta aventura avem de-a face cu sase persoane diferite,persoane care au trecut prin iad devenind din ce in ce mai puternici,transformandu-se intr-o varianta mai imbunatatita,mai capabile de a face tot ceea ce le este menit sa faca doar ca sa supravietuiasca.Intr-o lume ca in aceasta carte Puterea este totul,iar Kaz Brekker stie asta perfect the bine.

    ''Doar sase oameni ,insa o mie de feluri in care planul lor nebunesc putea sa se duca de rapa.''

    Kaz Brekker ar face orice pentru sansa de a se razbuna,insa mai intai incearca sa obtina destula putere incat sa poata sa faca ceea ce inima lui isi dorea.Imediat cum i se propune sa dea o lovitura de milioane,o lovitura care pare imposibila,Kaz imediat incearca sa-si gaseasca echipajul perfect pentru o spargere de genul acela.Un echipaj care sa se lase pe mana lui,dar care in acelasi timp sa-l ajute sa-si ajunga scopul.Cu ajutor lui Inej,Matthias,Nina,Jesper si Wylan ,Kaz ajunge La Curtea de Gheata,locul cel mai protejat al Fjerdaniilor.Locul unde lovitura imposibila urma sa se intample.

    Loialitate.Tradari.Scheme.Jaf.Spargere.O lupta imposibila.O misiune care ii poate imbogatii pe cei sase.Dar daca soarta este impotriva lor?Daca planul cel imposibil a lui Kaz va da gres?Daca ii va duce pe ceilalti pe drumul pierzaniei degeaba?Socul socului?Kaz Brekker este un geniu.Nina Zenik este of Sfasie-Inimi incredibila.Inej Ghafa este o Fantoma perfecta.Matthias Hevlar este un condamnat care stie ce este cel mai bine pentru el.Jesper este un pistolar bun.Iar Wylan?Un pui de negustor a carui minte proceseaza repede.

    De mult ori, pe parcursul acestei cartii, mi s-a facut pielea de gaina,mai ales de fiecare data cand citeam cate ceva din trecutul celor sase personaje.Motivele din cauza carora cei sase ajunsesera asa cum erau in acel moment.Hotarati sa faca orice,pregatiti sa infrunte orice le aparea in cale.Dar trebuie sa recunosc ca planul lui Kaz a fost genial de la inceput,chiar daca ni l-a dezvaluit pas cu pas.

    -Lacomia este zeul tau,Kaz.
    Si Kaz aproape ca a izbucnit in ras:
    -Nu,Inej.Lacomia se inchina la mine.E servitoarea si parghia mea.
    -Si atunci tu la ce zeu te inchini?
    -La oricare imi aduce noroc.
    -Nu cred ca asa merge treaba cu zeii.
    -Nu cred ca-mi pasa.

    Trebuie sa recunosc ca personajul meu preferat a fost de la inceput Kaz.Este genul de personaj care te fascineaza de la inceput.Te vrajeste din prima secunda si pas cu pas te face sa vrei sa-i afli toate secretele.O minte de geniu.O soarta chinuita.Insa un om care stie ceea ce vrea,chit ca trebuie sa treaca prin Iad ca sa obtina ceea ce isi doreste.Fascinant,fermecator,chiar daca  nu iti ofera motive sa crezi ca este genul de personaj care iti poate oferi Paradisul.

    -Te vreau fara armura,Kaz Brekker.Sau nu te vreau deloc.

    Pe langa Kaz,cea care a reusit sa imi atraga atentia a fost Inej sau Fantoma.Ma surprins felul ei de a gandi si felul in care reusea sa-i surprinda pe ceilalti cu schemele ei de Fantoma.Mi-a placut extrem de mult faptul ca nu este un personaj complicat care sa te faca sa te simti ca este fals sau prea ireal.Intotdeauna mi-a dat senzatia ca Inej era mai mult decat o Fantoma,mai mult decat fata suli care devenise una dintre Scursuri datorita lui Kaz.La cate lucururi s-au intamplat in aceasta poveste,ma tot gandeam Inej si la faptul ca fiecare pas pe care il facea mereu avea legatura cu Kaz.Chiar daca asta insemna sa sacrifice mici parti din ea.

    -Ramai,a spus ea cu respiratia intretaiata si cu ochii inlacrimati.Ramai pana la sfarsit.
    -Si dupa,a spus el.Pentru intotdeauna.
    -Vreau sa ma simt din nou in siguranta.Vreau sa ma intorc acasa,in Ravka.
    -Atunci am sa te duc acolo.O sa dam foc la stafide sau ce mai faceti voi,paganii,ca sa va distrati.
    -Fanaticule,i-a spus ea cu glas stins.
    -Vrajitoareo.
    -Barbarule.
    -Nina,a soptit el,pasaruica mea rosie.Nu pleca.

    Nina Zenik a fost unul dintre personajele care dat culoare acestei povesti.Fiind o Sfasie-Inima destul de puternica,Nina a reusit sa iasa la vedere cu personalitatea ei cuceritoare,dar trebuie sa recunosc ca uneori nu stiam ce sa mai cred despre ea.Grisha in tot sensul cuvantului,capabila de orice ca sa isi salveze oamenii,insa cand venea vorba de propria ei piele Nina imi dadea senzatia ca ar fi facut orice doar ca pentru alti,dar nu si pentru ea insusi.Mi-a placut atitudinea ei.Hotararea ei de a-l scoate pe Matthias din inchisoare.Dar ceea ce ma cucerit cu adevarat la ea a fost hotararea ei de a infrunta totul,de a se arunca in fata pericolului sperand ca intr-o buna zi totul o sa se rezolve,ca acel jurda-parem nu va mai exista,si ca oamenii ei,Grisha,vor traii in pace fara a fi amenintati de acea otrava.

    -Cu totii avem pacate,Nina.Am nevoie sa traiesti ca sa mi le pot ispasi pe ale mele.

    Matthias Hevlar a fost singurul personaj despre care mi-am facut o parere destul de greu.Impresionant,insa mereu imi dadea senzatia ca oricand la orice pas avea sa-si tradeze banda.Da,nu prea am avut incredere in el la inceput,dar recunosc ca pas cu pas am inceput sa vad schimbarea din el ,mai ales cand era vorba de Nina si de siguranta ei.Era amuzant sa citesc despre felul in care incerca din greu sa le arate tuturor ca nu-i pasa de ea sau ca ii ura pe toti.Dar momentul in care a reusit sa-mi castige increderea si momentul in care am stiut ca Matthias nu-i va trada,a fost momentul in care am stiu ca orice ar fi ceea ce simtea Matthias pentru Nina era mult mai puternic decat orice altceva.

    -Bine.Dar daca Pekka Rollins ne omoara pe toti,o sa-i cer stafiei lui Wylan s-o invete pe stafia mea cum sa cante la flaut,numai ca s-o pot scoate din minti pe stafia ta.
    Buzele lui Brekker s-au arcuit intr-un zambet:
    -Iar eu o sa angajez stafia lui Matthias sa-i dea un sut in cur stafiei tale.
    -Stafia mea n-o sa se asocieze cu a ta,a spus Matthias ferm,iar in clipa urmatoare s-a intrebat daca nu cumva aerul de mare incepuse sa-i macine creierul.

    Jesper.Pistolarul mi-a cam dat palpitatii la inceput,deoarece nu parea atat de dornic sa faca parte din aceasta misiune,ba chiar la un moment dat am inceput sa ma intreb :Oare o sa fie bun si el de ceva?
    La fel ca si in cazul lui Matthias,parerea mea despre Jesper s-a schimbat pas cu pas.Ma facut sa rad de multe ori,lucru care ma ajutat sa trec peste gandul ca poate rolul lui Jesper va fi unul neimportant.Dar recunosc ca sunt putin dezamagita de faptul ca la finalul cartii am aflat un detaliu mic despre Jesper la care nu ma asteptam.Ceea ce ma facut sa dansez putin in gandul meu a fost interesul lui Jesper fata de Wylan,interes care ma facut sa cred ca poate in urmatoarea carte relatia celor doi o sa fie un pic mai intensa si mai interesanta.

    -Un neghiob ar fi asteptat pe nava ca sa fie facut tandari.Cat despre ''tradator'',mi-ai aruncat vorbe mai grele  chiar si in ultimele cateva minute.

    Wylan,puiul de negustor,s-a schimbat pas cu pas imediat cum a intrat in vijelia creata de cele cinci personaje.Fiind obisnuit intr-un trai total diferit,m-am gandit ca poate Wylan nu va rezista pana la finalul cartii,insa a dovedit ca este in stare sa faca mai multe lucuri si ca nu era tocmai un pui de negustor prostut.Sincera sa fiu,am ajuns la concluzia ca acel pui de negustor o sa faca lucruri imposibile ,lucruri care ii vor ajuta pe ceilalti sa isi indeplineasca scopul.

    Inca un lucru care mi-a placut la nebunie a fost intensitatea si chimia dintre anumite personaje cum ar fi:Kaz si Inej;Matthias si Nina.Patru personaje capabile de aproape orice dar nu sa recunoasca faptul ca intre ei ar putea fi ceva.
    Kaz din cauza lucrurilor care i se intamplse in trecut..Inej isi dorea prea multe lucruri de la el.Insa chimia dintre cei doi era perfecta si ar fi putut sa fie incredibila.As putea sa imi si imaginez cat de periculosi ar fi daca ar fi un cuplu.Maini-Murdare si Fantoma.
    Matthias si Nina..La fel de complicat din cauza trecutului si din cauza unui lucru care s-a intamplat in prezent,insa ma bazez pe faptul ca poate ceva uimitor se va intampla intre ei doi.Ar fi pacat sa nu se intample.

    Kaz s-a lasat pe spate:
    -Cum furi cel mai simplu portofelul cuiva?
    -Ii pui un cutit la gat?a intrebat Inej.
    -Un pistol in sale?a spus Jesper.
    -Otrava in bautura?a sugerat Nina.
    -Sunteti infioratori, a spus Matthias.

    Aceasta poveste este o aventura plina de peripetii.Un adevarat roller-coaster plin de emotii si momente intense.O aventura primejdioasa in care avem parte de lucruri imposibile,dar in acelasi timp o poveste fascinanta in care imposibilul devine posibil.
    Pe langa cei sase din rolurile principale,mai dam si de alte personaje destul de interesante care dau un alt sens povestii,insa recunosc ca cel mai mult mi-am pastrat atentia asupra celor sase.
    Ceea ce mi-a mai placut la aceasta carte a fost faptul ca fiecare capitol era scris din punctul de vedere a altui personaj,fapt care ma facut sa apreciez si mai mult cartea,deoarece am avut sansa sa aflu ceea ce gandeau cinci dintre personajele principale separat.Cred ca mi-ar fi placut si mai mult daca povestea era scris la persoana I,dar ma multumesc cu ea asa cum este.

    -Cand toata lumea stie ca esti un monstru,a spus el,n-ai nevoie sa pierzi timpul facand toate lucrurile monstruoase.

    Aceasta este genul de carte care merita mai mult de 5 stele.O carte pe care o recomanda tuturor,deoarece in ea o sa gasiti o aventura incredibila plina de urcusuri si coborasuri,personaje uimitoare si o spargere de  neuitat.

    + 1 stars.
