Unboxing | Illumicrate November

Nach tagelangem Bangen, dass man mich vergessen haben könnte, kam gestern meine allererste Buchbox an – Illumicrate – und ich war völlig aus dem Häuschen. Schicht für Schicht wurde ausgepackt und bestaunt. In den nächsten Monaten möchte ich auch andere Bücherboxen ausprobieren und mich dann für meinen Favoriten entscheiden.

Ziemlich verdreckt und an den Ecken kaputt gestoßen, kam die Box bei mir an und ich hatte etwas Angst, dass der Inhalt dabei kaputt gegangen ist, aber zum Glück war alles unversehrt.

 

Dann gings ans auspacken und zuallererst möchte ich euch mal die Goodies zeigen, bevor es an die Bücher geht.

Leseproben

Nun zum ersten Buch “Artemis” von Andy Weir mit exklusivem schwarz gesprayten Rand 🙂

Ever had a bad day? Try having one on the moon…

WELCOME TO ARTEMIS. The first city on the moon.
Population 2,000. Mostly tourists.
Some criminals.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. She lives in a poor area of Artemis and subsidises her work as a porter with smuggling contraband onto the moon. But it’s not enough.

So when she’s offered the chance to make a lot of money she jumps at it. But though planning a crime in 1/6th gravity may be more fun, it’s a lot more dangerous…

und ein Vorabexemplar von “The City of Brass” von S.A.Chakraborty, das im Frühling 2018 erscheinen soll

Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty—an imaginative alchemy of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and Uprooted, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts.

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of eighteenth-century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trades she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles and a reliable way to survive. 

But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to question all she believes. For the warrior tells her an extraordinary tale: across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire, and rivers where the mythical marid sleep; past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises, and mountains where the circling birds of prey are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass—a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound.

In Daevabad, within gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal. That magic cannot shield her from the dangerous web of court politics. That even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.

After all, there is a reason they say to be careful what you wish for . . .
