Welcome to Portugal (January #1)

Heyyy! I decided to create a new post, which is “Welcome to Portugal”.

 

WE HAVE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FLAG!!!!

With this post, I want to inform you books that will be published in Portugal, but I will only talk about books that areย kind of “famous”, you kno0w, the bookworms community has read or has heard things about these books.

For example,ย I bet that you know, at least, one of the following books:

It will go to the Portuguese bookstores next month.

Goodreads synopsis: It has been nearly two decades since the breakout of the Third World War, and Manhattan is now a prisoner-of-war camp ruled by island native Rolladin, who controls the cityโ€™s survivors with an iron fist. For Skyler Miller, Manhattan is a cage that keeps her from the world beyond the cityโ€™s borders. But for Skyโ€™s younger sister, Phee, the Central Park POW camp is the only home sheโ€™d ever want.

When strangers arrive in the park, carrying a shocking message, Sky and Phee discover thereโ€™s more to Manhattanโ€”and their familyโ€”than either of them had imagined. As disturbing secrets about the island begin to surface, Sky and Phee have no choice but to break the rules to uncover the full truth of their long-shrouded history. When their search for answers erupts into violence, the girls must flee into Manhattanโ€™s depths, where their quest for a better future will force them to confront the islandโ€™s dark and shocking past.

Lee Kellyโ€™s gripping debut novel is a pulse-pounding journey through a city thatโ€™s as strange as it is familiar, where nothing is black-and-white and buried secrets can haunt.

Portuguese release date: January ( I don’t know the day yet)

This is the second book of The Original Shannaraย Trilogyย 

Goodreads synopsis: Ancient Evil threatens the Elves: The ancient tree created by long-lost Elven magic, is dying. When Wil Ohmsford is summoned to guard the Amberle on a perilous quest to gather a new seed for a new tree, he is faced with the Reaper, the most fearsome of all Demons. And Wil is without power to control them….

Original title: The Sword of Shannara (The Original Shannara Trilogy #2)

Portuguese release date: 15th January

In Portugal, all of ย The Heroes of Olympus books have nice, different covers!

Goodreads synopsis:ย Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risenโ€”all of themโ€”and they’re stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their bloodโ€”the blood of Olympusโ€”in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it “might” be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea’s army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

Original title:ย The Blood of Olympus (The Heroes of Olympus #5)

Portuguese release date: 6th January

And that’s it for today! Of course there are many other books that Portugal will welcome in January, but I only know these ones!

Byeee!
