    [Rezi] Katharine McGee – Majesty [American Royals]

    Klappentext Power is intoxicating. Like first love, it can leave you breathless. Princess Beatrice was born with it. Princess Samantha was born with less. Some, like Nina Gonzalez, are pulled into it. And a few will claw their way in. Ahem, we’re looking at you Daphne Deighton. As America adjusts to the idea of a queen on the throne, Beatrice grapples with everything she lost when she gained the ultimate crown. Samantha is busy living up to her „party princess“ persona…and maybe adding a party prince by her side. Nina is trying to avoid the palace–and Prince Jefferson–at all costs. And a dangerous secret threatens to undo all of Daphne’s…

    [Rezi] Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan – The Royal We [The Royal We]

    Klappentext American Bex Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall – and Bex who finds herself accidentally in love with the heir to the British throne. Nick is wonderful, but he comes with unimaginable baggage: a complicated family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a Brit. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex looks back on how much she’s had to give up for…

    [Rezi] Laura Sebastian – Half Sick of Shadows

    Klappentext Everyone knows the legend. Of Arthur, destined to be a king. Of the beautiful Guinevere, who will betray him with his most loyal knight, Lancelot. Of the bitter sorceress, Morgana, who will turn against them all. But Elaine alone carries the burden of knowing what is to come–for Elaine of Shalott is cursed to see the future.

    [Rezi] Rebecca McLaughlin – Nameless Queen

    Klappentext Everyone expected the king’s daughter would inherit the throne. No one expected me. It shouldn’t be possible.

But there’s no denying the tattoo emblazoned on my arm. I am to be queen. In a palace where the corridors are more dangerous than the streets, though, how could I possibly rule? And what will become of the Nameless if I don’t? Kaufen?*

    [Rezi] Sara Wolf – Bring Me Their Hearts [Bring me Their Hearts / Heartless]

    Klappentext Zera is a Heartless, —the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger’s control, she serves the witch unquestioningly. Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a prince’s heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum: if she’s discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy Zera’s heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles. Crown Prince Lucien d’Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him—every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No…

    [Rezi] Casey McQuiston – Red, White & Royal Blue

    Klappentext When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There’s only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse. Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined.…

    [Rezi] Anna Basener – Schund und Sühne

    Klappentext Ein schwuler Prinz, der für Nachkommen sorgen muss, eine depressive Fürstin, die nicht an Depressionen glaubt, ein Rosenkavalier, der die Welt retten will, eine Prinzessin mit gebrochenem Herzen und Jagdgewehr.

Für vier von ihnen brechen herrliche Zeiten an. Der Fünfte wird diesen Herbst nicht überleben. Kaufen?*
