I chiostri di New York / Katy Hays ; traduzione di Paola Moretti

Milano : Rizzoli, 2023

Abstract: Per Ann Stilwell passare l’estate a lavorare per il Metropolitan Museum of Art di New York è un sogno che si avvera. Ma il destino scompagina i suoi piani quando per un disguido si vede assegnata a una sede distaccata del Met: il Cloisters, una serie labirintica di chiostri spagnoli ricostruiti lungo le rive dell’Hudson, rinomato per la sua collezione di arte medievale e per un giardino ricco di piante medicinali. La giovane studentessa trova ad accoglierla Patrick Roland, l’eccentrico direttore del museo, e Rachel Mondray, la sua magnetica e ricchissima assistente. Da subito i due la coinvolgono nelle loro ricerche sulla storia della divinazione, e Ann sembra disposta a tutto pur di entrare nelle loro grazie. Ma tra gli incunaboli della biblioteca, mentre la curiosità accademica muta pian piano in ossessione, Ann scoprirà qualcosa capace di incrinare gli equilibri: un mazzo di tarocchi italiani risalente al Quattrocento, da secoli ritenuto perduto, in grado, secondo Patrick, di aprire una visione sul futuro a chi sa leggerlo. Mentre segreti e mire personali trascinano i tre studiosi in un gioco mortale di seduzioni e prevaricazione, Ann dovrà fare una scelta: credere in un destino già scritto o diventarne l’unica artefice. Tra relazioni tossiche, arcani maggiori e codici miniati, Katy Hays mette in moto un meccanismo letterario spietato; un esordio brillante che racconta il lato oscuro della nostra fame di conoscenza, in una New York sospesa tra modernità e occulto.

Shanghai immortal / A.Y. Chao

London : Hodderscape, 2023

Abstract: Pawned by her mother to the King of Hell as a child, Lady Jing is half-vampire, half-hulijing fox-spirit and all sasshole. As the King's ward, she has spent the past ninety years running errands, dodging the taunts of the spiteful hulijing courtiers, and trying to control her explosive temper - with varying levels of success. So when Jing overhears the courtiers plotting to steal a priceless dragon pearl from the King, she seizes her chance to expose them, once and for all. With the help of a gentle mortal tasked with setting up the Central Bank of Hell, Jing embarks on a wild chase for intel, first through Hell and then mortal Shanghai. But when her hijinks put the mortal in danger, she must decide which is more important: avenging her loss of face, or letting go of her half-empty approach to life for a chance to experience tenderness - and maybe even love.
