I did manage to limit myself to only three new YA books this week but these were some I couldn't resist.
Legacies (Shadow Grail, No. 1) by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill is the first YA offering by this pair. I really enjoy a lot of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar books which are more adult. I am also a big fan of Rosemary Edghill whether she is writing under that name or the name eluki bes shahar.
In the wake of the accident that killed her family, Spirit White is spirited away to Oakhurst Academy, a combination school and orphanage in the middle of Montana. There she learns she is a legacy—not only to the school, which her parents also attended, but to magic.
The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman is a story about a girl who has an unusual job.
Elizabeth has a new job at an unusual library— a lending library of objects, not books. In a secret room in the basement lies the Grimm Collection. That’s where the librarians lock away powerful items straight out of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales: seven-league boots, a table that produces a feast at the blink of an eye, Snow White’s stepmother’s sinister mirror that talks in riddles.Majix: Notes from a Serious Teen Witch by Douglas Rees.
What's a teen witch to do when she's stuck in the most unmagical high school in the universe? Create her own "majix." Take notes. And above all, avoid nasty classmates, heartless grown-ups and boys who may prove a little too distracting for a serious teen witch to handle….These appeared in my mailbox this week. What showed up in yours?
