Un dueto oscuro (Our Dark Duet)

Nora Escoms

The world is breaking. And so are they. Kate Harker isn't afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she's good at it. August Flynn once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost. The war has begun. The monsters are winning. Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims' inner demons. Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within?

Una canción salvaje (This Savage Song).

Nora Escoms

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives. In This Savage Song, Victoria Schwab creates a gritty, seething metropolis, one worthy of being compared to Gotham and to the four versions of London in her critically acclaimed fantasy for adults, A Darker Shade of Magic. Her heroes will face monsters intent on destroying them from every side—including the monsters within.

Hielo como fuego (Ice Like Fire, second book of the Snow Like Ashes trilogy)

Nora Escoms

It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and the evil Angra disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. The king of Cordell orders Meira and Theron on a mission to discover the chasm’s secrets, and she plans on using the trip to garner support for Winter. When she leaves, Mather takes Winter’s security into his own hands. As the web of power and deception is woven tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter but for the world.

Still Star-Crossed

Nora Escoms

Romeo and Juliet are gone, but Montagues and Capulets are still brawling in the streets.

Everyone is skeptical, but none more so than the pair selected: Benvolio, Romeo's best friend, and Juliet's older cousin Rosaline. Benvolio and Rosaline are not in love, yet they forge a bond to end the renewed feud not only to escape their forced betrothal, but to save their lives and the city of Verona itself.
