Allure of Madness

The Allure of Madness (Immortals Book 1)

By: Jessica Sorensen

Some say I’m worse than death. But I’m also a normal girl. I just happen to be cursed with the ability to drive a mind to insanity simply with my touch.

I can’t control my curse, which is why I’ve spent most of my life in a cage. Nothing survives my touch either, at least as far as I know.

Most call me a monster. Sometimes I wonder if maybe they’re right.

So when Caspian, a cocky, demanding—and I’ll admit, extremely good looking—jinni shows up at my cage and demands I go with him so he can exchange my life for his sister’s, I agree, hoping I can do something good for once. I just wish Caspian didn’t despise me so much.

Anathema

Nexus Series Book 1: Anathema

By: Ysa Arcangel

When the world was young, supernatural creatures walked among mankind freely. Chaos reigned as the supernatural beings sought supremacy. The human race was nearly wiped out of the face of the earth. Dark creatures preyed on the weaker. Demons inhabited human bodies and angels fell in love with them, hence Nexi, the cursed, were born.

Anathema has always seen strange things but never knew exactly why. Despite the pain, misery, agony and suffering it brings her, she has learned to accept her unique ability. As she strives to find out the reason for being able to travel through different realms and being a magnet to spirits of the dead, she realizes how little she knows about the truth of her existence.

When she is thrust in the middle of a war, a war that had been going on since the beginning of creation, Anathema must make a choice -- one that will save one world and destroy the other. Will she turn her back to the light she had always known and embrace the darkness within her?

Faith

A Question of Faith (Magic Incarnate Book 1)

by Nicole Zoltack

It's not everyday you learn you're the incarnation of magic.

After learning her birth mother sought the help of witches to conceive her, fifteen-year-old Crystal's previously unwavering faith is shaken. God hasn’t been answering her prayers like she thought--she was.

Crystal’s limitless magical potential is put to the test when her boyfriend’s mother is in a life-threatening accident. Surely God won’t mind her using magic to help people, but the miraculous outcome leaves Crystal wondering what she is capable of and worrying that her magic will damn her to Hell or, worse, prove she has no soul to condemn.

After her aunt is threatened, Crystal sets out to master her power, but flying and conjuring fireballs attracts dangerous attention. A witch hunter kidnaps her boyfriend, and shamans and witches hunt Crystal, desperate to use her to end a centuries-old war between the supernatural races. Her magic is an uncontrollable time bomb. If Crystal can't figure out what she's capable of, she won't just fail to protect those she loves and end the war--she might start the apocalypse.
