Yeah! Klassenfahrt! Wir sind für eine Woche auf dieser spukigen Burg irgendwo mitten im Wald. Weit weg von Direktor Kakadu und unseren Eltern. Wann könnten Abdi und ich unseren Battle besser zu Ende bringen, wenn nicht jetzt!? Abdi ist allerdings echt genial, das muss ich zugeben! Er ist mir immer einen Schritt voraus. Wie macht er das nur? Oder steckt vielleicht noch jemand ganz anderes hinter den Streichen?

Diabolic (1). Vom Zorn geküsst

Arena Verlag | Diabolic


Eine Diabolic ist stark.

Eine Diabolic kennt kein Mitleid.

Eine Diabolic hat eine einzige Aufgabe: Töte, um den einen Menschen zu schützen, für den du erschaffen wurdest.

Als Nemesis und Tyrus sich am Imperialen Kaiserhof begegnen, prallen Welten aufeinander. Sie - eine Diabolic, die tödlichste Waffe des gesamten Universums. Liebe ist ihr völlig fremd. Er - der Thronfolger des Imperiums, der von allen für wahnsinnig gehalten wird. Liebe ist etwas, das ihn nur schwächen würde. Dass ausgerechnet diese beiden zusammenfinden, darf nicht sein. Denn an einem Ort voller Intrigen und Machtspiele ist ein Funke Menschlichkeit eine gefährliche Schwachstelle …

Nemesis und Tyrus. Diabolic und Thronerbe. Ein Mädchen zwischen unbändigem Zorn und ergreifender Liebe, und ein Junge, dem Gefühle das Leben kosten könnten. Eine großes Fantasy-Spektakel, das den Lesern den Atem rauben wird!
