Shadowspell Academy (The Culling Trials)
by K.F. Breene and Shannon Mayer
You Don’t Choose The Academy. The Academy Chooses You.
I had no idea how those words would change my life. Or how they’d changed my life already…
Until the day the most dangerous man I’ve ever met waltzed onto my farm and left us a death sentence.
In an invitation.
My younger brother has been chosen for the prestigious, secret magical school hidden within the folds of our mundane world. A place so dangerous, they don’t guarantee you’ll make it out alive.
If he doesn't go our entire family will be killed.
It’s the same invitation my older brother received three years ago—the same place he mysteriously died.
The academy has already killed one sibling. I’ll be damned if they take another.
I do the only thing an older sister can: chop off my hair, strap on two bras to flatten the girls, and take my brother’s place.
Magic and monsters are real. Assassins are coming for me, and the dead are prone to rise. What’s a girl faking it as a boy supposed to do? That’s right—beat the academy at its own game.
Or die trying.

Emerge: The Heir (Immortals of Indriell Book 4)
by Melissa A. Craven
The last Immortal Queen of Indriell has named her heir.

At twenty-one, she considers herself an adult and has finally found the normal life she’s always craved. As normal as it gets for a young Immortal legacy—prophecy or not.
For years, Allie and Aidan have gone their separate ways, doing the college thing and just living their lives. Apart. It was his choice to sever their ties. A sacrifice to give her the time she needed to come to terms with her bond with his brother, Darius. A sacrifice she’s come to believe was necessary for all of them.
But when Allie discovers that Aidan hasn’t been in school all this time—and his family hasn’t heard from him in more than a year, she struggles to contain her rage and the powerful judgment that burns within her.
Protecting Aidan, even from himself, fuels her every breath. She would do anything for him. Even step forward as the heir.

On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude.

Televised since her early childhood, Roselle’s privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state.
But Roselle finds an ally—and more—in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for—even love?
Dragon Bound (Book One)
by Chelsea M. Campbell
Virginia St. George—of the dragon-slaying St. George dynasty—has the brains and bloodline that define her family’s legacy, but she’s never been good at following in their footsteps. She doesn’t have the powerful magic every St. George is born with or the sword-wielding skills of the paladins—like her sister, Celeste—who bravely combat their fire-breathing foes. Even worse, a past tragedy has left Virginia with a crippling fear of dragons…and facing arranged marriage to an aging nobleman eager for heirs. But when Celeste is kidnapped by an infamous dragon clan, Virginia must make a daring rescue and defy the fear that has tormented her for years.
Virginia can’t do it alone, and her only ally is the notorious criminal she’s freed from her family’s dungeon. Who better to guide her into the dragons’ lair than one of their own? To save her flesh and blood, Virginia will risk her life—even if her first quest proves her final undoing.
