Gente, dia 9 já!! Bora indicar!

Eu vou indicar só Fantasia Urbana, porque mês passado tomei um chá de Fantasia Épica:

Half-Resurrection Blues, do Daniel José Older. Ele preenche os requisitos 1, 4, 6, 8, 16, 17 e 24 do Desafio.
Sinopse: “Because I’m an inbetweener—and the only one anyone knows of at that—the dead turn to me when something is askew between them and the living. Usually, it’s something mundane like a suicide gone wrong or someone revived that shouldn’ta been.”
Carlos Delacruz is one of the New York Council of the Dead’s most unusual agents—an inbetweener, partially resurrected from a death he barely recalls suffering, after a life that’s missing from his memory. He thinks he is one of a kind—until he encounters other entities walking the fine line between life and death.
One inbetweener is a sorcerer. He’s summoned a horde of implike ngks capable of eliminating spirits, and they’re spreading through the city like a plague. They’ve already taken out some of NYCOD’s finest, leaving Carlos desperate to stop their master before he opens up the entrada to the Underworld—which would destroy the balance between the living and the dead.
But in uncovering this man’s identity, Carlos confronts the truth of his own life—and death…

Rosemary and Rue, da Seanan McGuire. Requesitos 3, 4, 8, 16, 17 e 24.
Sinopse: October "Toby" Daye, a changeling who is half human and half fae, has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the Faerie world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world has other ideas...
The murder of Countess Evening Winterrose pulls Toby back into the fae world. Unable to resist Evening's dying curse, which binds her to investigate, Toby must resume her former position as knight errant and renew old alliances. As she steps back into fae society, dealing with a cast of characters not entirely good or evil, she realizes that more than her own life will be forfeited if she cannot find Evening's killer.

Midnight Crossroad, da Charlaine Harris. Porque eu sempre me divirto com Charlaine Harris e ele virou uma série de TV recentemente. Categorias 4, 16, 17 e 24 do desafio.
Sinopse: Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. It’s a pretty standard dried-up western town.
There’s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There’s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there’s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he’s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own).
Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth...

Isabela (absinto) | 39 comments Eu vou indicar dois livros porque são os que tão na minha pilha de leitura tem milhares de anos.

Equal Rites do Terry Pratchett. Pra quem sempre quis começar a série Discworld, acho que este pode ser um ótimo ponto de partida.
Sinopse: On Discworld, a dying wizard tries to pass on his powers to an eighth son of an eighth son, who is just at that moment being born. The fact that the son is actually a daughter is discovered just a little too late. The town witch insists on turning the baby into a perfectly normal witch, thus mending the magical damage of the wizard's mistake. But now the young girl will be forced to penetrate the inner sanctum of the Unseen University--and attempt to save the world with one well-placed kick in some enchanted shins! Reissue.

Dracula do Bram Stoker.
Sinopse: A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written -- and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

David Meditationseed | 10 comments Vou seguir uma das propostas da Isabela, que é esse cara fabuloso, para não dizer outra coisa : ) , Terry Pratchett, e sugerir o quarto volume do Discworld, que é o Aprendiz de Morte. Livraço, super divertido e repleto de magia e fantasia. Se alguém achava que a Morte ficava só jogando xadrez nas horas vagas, como no filme do Ingmar Bergman, quem sabe a gente não a encontre tomando uma cerveja gelada em algum boteco do universo.
