The Diviners Zusammenfassung

The Diviners: Number 1 in series Libba Bray

It's 1920s New York City. It's flappers and Follies, jazz and gin. It's after the war but before the depression. And for certain group of bright young things it's the opportunity to party like never before.

For Evie O'Neill, it's escape. She's never fit in in small town Ohio and when she causes yet another scandal, she's shipped off to stay with an uncle in the big city. But far from being exile, this is exactly what she's always wanted: the chance to show how thoroughly modern and incredibly daring she can be.

But New York City isn't about just jazz babies and follies girls. It has a darker side. Young women are being murdered across the city. And these aren't crimes of passion. They're gruesome. They're planned. They bear a strange resemblance to an obscure group of tarot cards. And the New York City police can't solve them alone.

Evie wasn't just escaping the stifling life of Ohio, she was running from the knowledge of what she could do. She has a secret. A mysterious power that could help catch the killer - if he doesn't catch her first.

The Diviners Bewertungen

1920s New York thrums with giddy life in this gripping first in a new trilogy from Printz winner Bray. . .the intricate plot and magnificently imagined details of character, dialogue and setting take hold and don't let go. Not to be missed. * Kirkus (starred review) *
Here's your headline, boss: "Small-Town Dame Lands in Big Apple, Goes Wild, Tries to Stop Resurrection of Antichrist." It'll sell bundles! Indeed it will, as Bray continues her winning streak with this heedlessly sprawling series starter set in Prohibition-era New York. . .The book is big and wants to be the kind of thing you can lose yourself in. Does it succeed? It's jake, baby. * ALA Booklist *
The paranormal meets the roaring Twenties in the scary and posi-tute-ly amazing, The Diviners. * Bliss *
One kick-ass setting, a cast of brilliant characters, a host of amazing supernatural powers and one creepy-as-hell killer on the loose . . . rich, complex and addictive - an elaborate web of stories, winding together to create one masterpiece tapestry of a book. * guardian.co.uk *
Packed with hilarious 1920s slang, snappy one-liners and intriguing period detail, this is a beautifully-crafted novel with a complex, twisting plot and plenty of creepy moments that will keep readers right on the edge of their seats. Introducing us to an intriguing ensemble cast of characters as well as wonderfully bright and breezy heroine in Evie - and of course, a truly terrifying villain - The Diviners is a hugely entertaining adventure that will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next instalment. * Booktrust *
READ . . . sequined-packed, serial-killer thriller with supernatural overtones, think the Jazz Age meets Twilight - AND it's the first part of a trilogy. * Instyle *
Exquisitely crafted . . . a joy from start to end * Heat *
