Nella mia wishlist #7

Buongiorno, lettori!
Oggi torno sul blog per aggiornare la rubrica a cadenza del tutto casuale dedicata alla mia wishlist libresca, che si allunga sempre di più. :P
Vi lascio la trama di due romanzi a tema magico non disponibili in Italia che mi ispirano davvero tantissimo!


 "A darker shade of magic" (Shades of magic #1) di V. E. Schwab
Kell is one of the last travelers--magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes connected by one magical city. 

There's Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, and with one mad King--George III. Red London, where life and magic are revered--and where Kell was raised alongside Rhy Maresh, the roguish heir to a flourishing empire. White London--a place where people fight to control magic and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. And once upon a time, there was Black London. But no one speaks of that now.

Officially, Kell is the Red traveler, ambassador of the Maresh empire, carrying the monthly correspondences between the royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She robs him, saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure. 

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they'll first need to stay alive.

"Libriomancer" (Magic Ex Libris #1) di Jim C. Hines

Isaac Vainio is a Libriomancer, a member of the secret organization founded five centuries ago by Johannes Gutenberg. Libriomancers are gifted with the ability to magically reach into books and draw forth objects. When Isaac is attacked by vampires that leaked from the pages of books into our world, he barely manages to escape. To his horror he discovers that vampires have been attacking other magic-users as well, and Gutenberg has been kidnapped.
With the help of a motorcycle-riding dryad who packs a pair of oak cudgels, Isaac finds himself hunting the unknown dark power that has been manipulating humans and vampires alike. And his search will uncover dangerous secrets about Libriomancy, Gutenberg, and the history of magic. . . .

  1. Ho comprato A Darker Shade of Magic un po' di tempo fa, approfittando di un'offerta su Amazon: onestamente, non vedo l'ora di leggerlo... In giro se ne parla benissimo, e a giudicare dalla trama, dovrebbe essere giusto il tipo di romanzo che fa al caso mio! *____*

    1. Aspetto il tuo parere allora! Mi ispira proprio tanto!
