Anathem

Description: Fraa Erasmus is a young avout living in the Concent of Saunt Edhar, a sanctuary for mathematicians, scientists, and philosophers, protected from the corrupting influences of the "Saecular" world by ancient stone, honored traditions, and complex rituals.
Over the centuries, cities, and governments have risen and fallen beyond the concent's walls. Three times during history's darkest epochs, bloody violence born of superstition and ignorance has invaded and devastated the cloistered mathic community. Yet always the avout have managed to adapt in the wake of catastrophe, becoming out of necessity more austere and less dependent on technology and material things. Erasmus, however, has no fear of the outside - the Extramuros - for the last of the terrible times was long, long ago.

The Forest House (Avalon, Book 2)

Description: The setting of this historical/fantasy novel is Roman Briton. Eilan, a Druid girl who has been raised in the cult of the Goddess with the priestesses wielding the power, has fallen in love with a young Roman named Gaius. He is a half-Briton whose mother was of the Druid tribes and whose father is a powerful officer in the Roman legions. The clash between these two cultures and the eventual hope of unification through Eilan and Gaius's son is one of the book's many story lines. Bradley does a masterful job of creating the flavor of the period and the two diverse cultures, as well as strong female characters. With its elements of love story, intense emotions, and mysticism, Forest House will appeal to YAs.

Karamellskorna

Description: När Vianne Rocher lämnade sitt chocolateri och sitt gamla liv tog hon bara med sig dottern Anouk och det hemliga barnet i magen. Som Yanne Charbonneau lever hon nu ett stilla liv i Paris med sina båda döttrar. På ytan verkar ingenting ovanligt med dem, och det är precis så de vill ha det.
En dag stormar Zozie de l'Alba in i deras liv - en färgstark och magisk kvinna med planer som skulle kunna skaka om deras värld. Dessutom slits Vianne mellan två män: den stabile Thierry och vagabonden Roux. Men Zozie har dem alla i sitt våld och snart måste Yanne fatta ett beslut: Att fly, som förut, eller att konfrontera sin farligaste fiende - sig själv.
Joanne Harris slog igenom stort med Choklad, som även filmatiserades med framgång. Karamellskorna är en direkt uppföljare.
