In My Mailbox (1)
Hello! :) I won:
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
I won this book during the Splash into Summer giveaway Hop from Backseat Reader I'm SO excited to read this! I've heard a lot of good reviews.
Goddess of Legend by P.C.Cast
Daughter of Darkness by V.C. Andrews
The Septavalent Stone by J.O.Jones
A little bit about it:
Mrs. Ugabi never told Andrew that she was a renowned witch or that his uncle was a retired magical salesman who traded contraband dark magical objects. If she had, he would have known that:
Travelling to his uncle's house to stay for a few weeks was a bad idea, and, forgetting to search his box before leaving the house in case anything sinister found its way into it was also a bad idea.
Instead, Andrew has to learn about his uncle the hard way as strange things begin to happen around him. As the medicomagical schools in Africa grow worse academically, Andrew transfers to Norgads University in Ukraine where a group of fellow nephews-and-kids of mystic parentage have mysteriously convened, unaware that he holds, in his box, an ancient relic that belongs to a very powerful being called an elder.
But just when he thinks he can settle down and finally study, he discovers the stone, and to make matters worse, his cousin, the wild and unpredictable Aloysia, arrives on her father's orders to retrieve it. With a second war threatening to repeat itself between the two families, and the power of the stone causing the school cadavers to arise and attack the students, Andrew and Aloysia must put aside all differences, and team up to solve the mystery behind the stone which leads him to learn lesson number three:
3.There are some situations that two enemies cannot pass through together without becoming best friends.
Sounds good! :)
