From ​#1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo comes a mesmerizing tale of power, privilege, and dark magic set among the Ivy League elite.

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug-dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. In fact, by age twenty, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most prestigious universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Rémálom
Leigh Bardugo: Ninth House

Túlírt, 60 oldalon semmi nem történt, de volt három idősík, csak úgy… Írói ígéret nincs, mert nem akar semmit sem a könyv. Annyira próbál titokzatos lenni a világfelépítéssel, hogy össze-vissza terelget az írónő, de leginkább az épületek építészeti stílusáról beszél, ami baromi unalmas. Azt olvastam, az írónő nyilatkozata szerint ez „$@!% up” könyv, de a vér és brutalitás, amit beletett orchideákhoz hasonlított belekből kimerült. Ha-ha. És amikor a két bunkó pasi bejön… és a csaj feleslegesen antagonizálja a szépfiúkat… akkor én ezt letettem. Túl sok ilyet olvastam már.

Good physical health and hygiene. Evidence of a regular fitness regimen encouraged.
Exhibits signs of a steady character with a mind toward discretion.
An interest in the arcane is discouraged, as this is a frequent indicator of an “outsider” disposition.

Mors vincit omnia.

Beneath the Lethe requirements, an addendum read: Standards for candidates have been relaxed in two circumstances: Lowell Scott (B.A., English, 1909) and Sinclair Bell Braverman (no degree, 1950), with mixed results.
Another note had been scratched into the margin here, this one clearly in Darlington’s jagged, EKG-like scrawl: Alex Stern.

But the trouble had begun on a night in the full dark of winter, when Tara Hutchins died and Alex still thought she might get away with everything.
