Mini chronique de nouvelles ou mini récit (12)

Eleven Minutes (Fracture, #0.5)
Eleven Minutes by
Fracture is told from Delaney's perspective, and if you've read the first two chapters, you know that she falls through the ice in chapter one, and she wakes up 6 days later. And what happens in between—well, that's Decker's story.

This is the story of those eleven minutes, and the six days that follow, from his perspective. Because while it must be terrifying to be trapped under the ice, it's a different kind of terror seeing your best friend trapped... 

The Fear Trials (The Murder Complex, #0.5)
The Fear Trials by
Meadow Woodson has been trained to survive. This is a prequel to The Murder Complex, by Lindsay Cummings, and it is set in a blood-soaked world where the murder rate is higher than the birth rate. For fans of Moira Young's Dust Lands series, La Femme Nikita, and the movie Hanna.

Meadow Woodson's father calls it The Fear Trials, and it is a rite of passage in their family. Meadow is up against her brother Koi. The Fear Trials will both harden her and make her brave. If Meadow wins, she will get a weapon of her own and the right to leave the Woodsons' houseboat without her father or mother at her side. Set in the violent, complex, and mysterious world of The Murder Complex, and introducing Meadow Woodson—a teenage girl trained to survive no matter what the cost—and her family, who are together for the last time on their houseboat in the Florida Everglades.

Prequelle à The Murdex Complex, j'ai lu cette nouvelle après ma lecture du premier tome et je dois dire que c'est une bonne introduction à l'univers du livre. On y retrouve sa dureté, son côté sombre mais surtout on découvre Meadow et sa vie et tout de suite le ton est donné. Donc si vous voulez savoir si vous allez aimer le livre cette nouvelle est parfaite car elle représente bien ce qui vous attend.

Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky (The Lunar Chonicles, #3.5)
Carswell's Guide to Being Lucky by
A short story that appeared in Target exclusive copies of Cress
Contenu bonus de Cress, je dois dire que j'adore Carswell, il a un humour, une effronterie qui me touche et du coup 42 pages sur lui forcément ça me tente. Le résumé ne dit rien mais on suit Carswell à l'âge de 13 -14 ans lors de ses débuts au sein de son collège, dans Cress on connaît un peu plus de son histoire ms cette nouvelle revient sur un point précis qui devrait plaire donc si vous êtes fan comme moi lisez là.
