By: M. Lynn & Melissa A. Craven
Brea Robinson is a prisoner.
Granted, her prison has gilded halls, servants, and an aunt intent on throwing a lavish wedding. A wedding for Brea. Fae marriages are unbreakable, everlasting.
As Brea barrels toward her forever prison in a marriage to a man she doesn’t love, the three Fae kingdoms are thrown into turmoil. But no matter how close Queen Regan’s enemies get, it won’t be enough to save Brea from the fate she chose.
Some sacrifices result in death. Others only make you wish for death.

Because Queen Regan O’Rourke might be family, but her rule is over.
It's time for a new generation to unite the Fae.

The princess of Floris is engaged to marry a rich and handsome duke. It’s a fairy tale romance, one I’m destined to watch from afar. After all, I’m the palace’s head gardener, and gardeners don’t marry princesses. Lilian has been everything to me since the minute she was born. Now, with her wedding weeks away, she has a future, a fiancé, and a kingdom, and I can’t get in the way. My mentor has always said that work is the best cure for an aching heart, and I have plenty to do. As head gardener, it’s up to me to ensure that Floris retains its reputation as the home of the most magical flowers in the world. But flowers have begun to die on the palace grounds, taking with them my last hopes of a happily ever after.

Heir of Thorns
A Rapunzel retelling (Kingdom of Fairytales Rapunzel Book 2)
by J.A. Armitage and Emma Savant
Each day, I wake up to a world uglier than the one before. The disease killing my kingdom’s gardens has escaped the palace grounds, transforming our once-beautiful landscape of color into a devastating scene of gray death. The king and queen who should be leading us through the crisis have all but disappeared, and Lilian’s fiancé, the not-so-charming duke of Thornton, has stepped up to control not just the kingdom but his future bride, too. The fate of the kingdom trembles on a precipice, and I’m left to do everything in my power to stop the blight and shield Lilian from the worst of her betrothed’s jealous demands. And as the Spring Flower Festival approaches and all eyes turn our way, I have to step up and show the rest of the world that Floris won’t go down without a fight.

I never should've taken the dare.
In a destroyed world plagued with pestilence, assassins, thieves, and the Tainted--mutated fae-like humans with a penchant for abduction--nothing is easy. It's brutal, deadly, and most often, short.
My father has three rules to survive the apocalypse; keep your head down, work hard, and never leave the safety of Harbor. Following his rules isn't as easy as it seems--especially when tricked into breaking them.
Blackmailed into attending at party outside of the walls didn't seem so bad--until all hell broke loose and I was left in the clutches of a dragon lord. I thought I knew who my enemies were: starvation, infection, and the Tainted.
I was wrong. That's why I never saw it coming.
The death. The lies. The complete betrayal.
No one said love wouldn't destroy you.
by Kate Avery Ellison
