Prescient: Delphi Chronicles Book One
What if I told you you'd be dead in a year?
Sounds crazy, right? Because nobody can see the future.
Nobody but me.
You'd think time-travel would be a useful gift for cheating on tests and winning the lottery—stuff like that. I might have enjoyed my ability...if I hadn't discovered earth will soon turn into a wasteland.
Bodies rotting in the streets.
Wilderness eating away at my hometown.
A shadow organization rounding up children.
Bands of warring tribes fighting each other.
And the modifieds—the zombie-like remains of what used to be the human race.
Oh and the boy I have a crush on? It’s his father who will destroy everything if I don’t do something to stop it.
No one can save the world... except me.
Because for me, it hasn't even happened yet.
For me, it might never happen.
The only thing is, the more time I spend in the future, the less I want to erase it.
Even if I can prevent what's coming, I'll have to sacrifice the one person I can't bear to lose.
Collapse (The Ashwood Lies Book 1)
by RJ Infantino
How far would you go to save your friends?
When Chase finds survival gear hidden in the attic of his boarding school, he realizes Ashwood Prep isn't what it seems. Thrust into a conspiracy that is centuries old, he can choose to run or stand up and fight.
After an earthquake cuts the school off from the rest of the world, Chase has to figure out who's a friend, who's an enemy, and if there's really any difference at all. As the world starts to collapse, trusting the wrong person can have deadly consequences. Caught between his classmates and the professors' schemes, he can't afford to choose wrong. It would all be a lot easier if Taylor and Maya weren't pulling him in opposite directions.
Is it really the apocalypse? Or is it something much worse?
The Enhanced (Book 1)
by TC Edge
We created them. And now they rule us...
The world has changed. Wars and terrible weapons have decimated the global population. Originally designed for war, genetically modified super-beings have risen to the top, living in relative safety in the city of Haven.
Divided into two parts, the city is home to the genetically superior Enhanced, and the inferior Unenhanced: normal humans now subjugated and controlled. It’s a brutal world of divides. An unyielding system of class. The strong rise and the weak fall. That is the new world.
Brie Melrose is just a normal girl of 18. She grew up an orphan, and her life was never deemed likely to amount to anything.
One day, however, a routine job turns into something much more, and Brie finds herself under the watchful eye of the Savants, the highest order of the Enhanced. Blessed with supreme intellect, they consider emotions to be pointless.
And, in some cases, dangerous…
For Brie, coming face to face with a Savant is a rare thing indeed. And soon, something even rarer is about to occur: she is to be invited into Inner Haven, the sanctuary of the Enhanced where she’ll come into contact with some strange and dangerous people.
People who want things from her. People who know things about her past.
Soon, threats she never even knew existed will close in, and Brie will learn that her world, and the city of Haven, isn’t quite what she thought it was.
And neither is she…

The Glitch (Book 1)
by Ramona Finn
On the brink of extinction, being human means more than just surviving.
In Lib's world, it's dangerous to deviate from the norm. In fact, for someone who doesn't live up to the Artificial Intelligence's standards, it's practically a death sentence.

"It's all my fault."
Lib is a Glitch--an imperfect human component of the utopian world called the Norm.

Her heart is drawn to both, but she's carrying a deadly secret that could jeopardize them all. Will she be able to save her newfound family and stop the A.I. before it's too late?

I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance.
Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom's fatal car accident six months ago never happened.
A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I'm a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become.
But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week.
I'm the only one who knows. Which means I'm the only one who can stop it.
But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth... and then get them to help me.
