Myths of Immortality (The Sphinx) (Volume 3)

By: Raye Wagner

No one is allowed to love her, except the god who cursed her...

In the realm of the dead, there are no lies.

Hope Nicholas is desperate to believe that the truth will set her free from the bindings of Apollo's curse and allow her the freedom to choose who to love. But to get the truth, she must travel to the Underworld, a feat near impossible for the living. The gods there have their own agendas and, forced to forge alliances with the most unlikely allies, Hope will find that death is not the worst torment of the Underworld.

Athan Michael spent months chasing Hope, only to have her disappear once again. And when he discovers her destination, he knows the treacherous journey to the Underworld is one he cannot take alone. Forced to put aside his past with Xan and Dahlia, the three demigods embark on their own quest. But the past will not stay buried, and Athan must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to help Hope break the curse.

Teeth of the Gods

(Unweaving Chronicles Book 1)

By: Sarah K. L. Wilson

Her world is unraveling - and she’s the reason why.

Adventurous Tylira is trapped in a life she didn’t choose and destined to be chained to an enemy general.

When she is summoned to Al’Karida she knows two things will happen: she will witness the beginning of the race for the Teeth of the Gods, and she won’t be one of the racers.

Or will she? Because Tylira isn’t exactly the kind of girl who listens to other people’s advice. She thinks she can figure out her own way to tap into her potential, and the race is just a bit too tempting to resist.

But with every move Tylira makes things seem to unravel more and more...

Can Tylira escape the future everyone else wants for her or will she destroy everything in her attempt to be free?

Slave (Book 1)

By: Laura Frances

There is no sun. There is no moon. There is only gray—the smog belched from coal-fueled factories. The Workers silently shuffle to their assigned posts. The Outcasts watch from the alley walls. On every corner, a Watcher stands stone-faced, a rifle in hand. This is the only life that exists. Beyond the mountains is a dream. But dreams are foolish in a place like this.

Hannah has spent nineteen years dodging Watchers and doing as she is told.

Do not look Watchers in the eye. Don't give them a reason to notice you.

But when she wakes to the valley exploding in revolution, Hannah is forced onto a dangerous path, where nothing is what she believed. Suddenly freedom is in her grasp, and the way there requires working with the men she fears most.

Deceptions

By: Kimberly Readnour

Heather Reiner has always felt like an outsider. And she doesn’t have a normal afterschool job, either. That’s because she’s got amazing psychic abilities that help the police, well, mostly Detective Tanner, track down dangerous criminals.

Heather has no choice but to embrace her gift of second-sight when her visions take a dangerous turn by revealing a government corruption. And if that weren’t bad enough, Heather learns that a local college student is missing, too.

When Heather tells Detective Tanner about her psychic intuition, he asks for her help solving the two seemingly unrelated cases. Yet the hostile police chief is convinced she’s a major fraud, and Heather doesn’t trust him.

With the help of Tanner and her hot new boyfriend, Heather decides to stop the criminals before they set their diabolical plan into motion. Unfortunately, this also makes her a prime target. But nothing could’ve prepared Heather for what she’ll have to face if she hopes to solve the mystery, or the potentially fatal consequences if she doesn’t...

In the Middle

by SJ Henderson

Girl moves to new town.

Girl meets Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome.

Cue Happily Ever After.

That’s how the story goes, right?

Except this is Lucy. The same Lucy whose stellar driving skills single-handedly wiped out both of her parents, leaving her with nothing but the suitcase in her hand and the screws in her skull. Not to mention that Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome—AKA Oliver—is just as annoyingly bossy as he is hot. According to Oliver, Lucy’s not safe in her new hometown, but he refuses to say why. He just gives her some lame warning about not going out after dark, like that’ll stop her.

When several townspeople vanish, the lethargic community springs to life, fearful of the danger lurking among them. The problem is that Lucy’s the last person to have seen any of the missing. Doesn’t exactly qualify her for the Neighbor of the Year Award.

Lucy’s already given up on Happily Ever After, but now she has two choices left: find out what’s happening in her new home, or become the next victim.
