Phoenix Awakens (The Phoenix Book 1)

byEliza Nolan

Julia Long’s senior year is starting with an extra dose of crazy.

First, there are the creepy dreams about bloody cult rituals. Then, her new classmate and crush, Southern charmer Graham, shows up in her nightmares as the sacrificial victim. And these dreams seem to be telling her she’s supposed to save him, when in real life she can barely talk to the guy.

One thing’s for sure, Graham is mysterious. He and his sister are tight-lipped about their time in the south, and Julia suspects they’re on the run from something or someone. As her dreams intensify, Julia begins to manifest strange abilities, and when Graham is near, they kick into overdrive.

There's no more denying it. Not only is Julia falling for Graham, but she has a magical connection to him. A connection that will put them both in mortal danger when Graham's dark past finally catches up with him.

The Hundredth Queen

(The Hundredth Queen Series Book 1)

by Emily R. King

As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood in the ancient Tarachand Empire, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, let alone a courtesan or wife. Her sole dream is to continue living in peace in the Sisterhood’s mountain temple.

But a visit from the tyrant Rajah Tarek disrupts Kalinda’s life. Within hours, she is ripped from the comfort of her home, set on a desert trek, and ordered to fight for her place among the rajah’s ninety-nine wives and numerous courtesans. Her only solace comes in the company of her guard, the stoic but kind Captain Deven Naik.

Faced with the danger of a tournament to the death—and her growing affection for Deven—Kalinda has only one hope for escape, and it lies in an arcane, forbidden power buried within her.

Emerge: The Captive (Emerge Book 3)

by Melissa A. Craven

A moment of distraction has cost him his freedom but Quinnton Loukas has a dangerous secret

Held as a captive of the Immortal organization, known as Soma, if his secret is discovered it will be used against him. From the moment of his Awakening, Quinn has struggled with an addiction to his power. The rigid self-control that has kept his addiction at bay is now in the hands of another. If Livia discovers what he is capable of, she will drive him to become the monster he fears is lurking deep inside his soul. His only hope is to escape before she has that chance. But there are others at Soma. Those he’s grown to care for and refuses to leave behind.

Thousands of miles away in India, Sasha blames herself for the capture of the boy she’s loved nearly all her life. As she and her family work to find a way to bring Quinn home, Sasha is caught up on a journey of her own that will take her far from everything she ever thought she wanted. Drafted by the Senate into a brutal training program, Sasha begins to discover who she truly is and how little control she has over her own destiny.

Sasha and Quinn have always shared a special bond, but with their lives moving in opposite directions can they ever go back to the way they were? Or is there something much more complicated about the future of their relationship?

by Jane Washington and Jaymin Eve

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings?

In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth—something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on.

So it definitely shouldn’t be new … but it is.

Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before.

Things are starting to get …chaotic.

The Enhanced: Book One in The Enhanced Series

by T.C. 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…

Flightless Bird (The Caged Series Book 1)

by Kellie McAllen

They're powerless without her; she's powerless to resist.

The list of reasons why Lexus Wren is the last girl any guy would be interested in is mercilessly long:

Her dad’s in prison for murder, her mom drowns her sorrows every night at Dave’s Dive, and Lexus is just trying to survive the cruelties of high school as a painfully shy bookworm with a bad wardrobe and a collection of nervous habits. Never in a million years did Lexus expect to draw the eyes of two hunky transfer students, Phoenix and Griffin Easton.

The troubled brothers are haunted by their own demons and don’t seem bothered by Lexus’ tarnished reputation. They’re too busy trying to figure out why touching her makes them feel like electricity is frying their insides and why they're compelled to obey her every command.

You’d think having two hot guys vying for her would improve her reputation, but the bullying at home and school only gets worse. When Lexus’ problems reach a critical tipping point, the boys are drawn to protect her, and the truth about their powerful connection is revealed in an explosive confrontation that will astound them all.

Fireblood (Whispers from Mirrowen Book 1)

by Jeff Wheeler

Tyrus of Kenatos has made it his life’s work to banish the plagues that ravage the kingdoms. He believes the answer to ending the devastation lies in the Scourgelands. Yet, Tyrus’s first expedition into the cursed woods failed after being defeated by mysterious minions who stalked and killed most of his band.

Now a prisoner in his own tower, Tyrus has summoned his nephew Annon—a Druidecht possessing innate magic called the fireblood—on the guise of finding a hidden treasure with which to purchase his twin sister Hettie’s freedom. But in reality, Tyrus is using his niece and nephew, and their magic, as an opportunity to escape and resume his desperate mission. And to aid them, he has enlisted the warrior-monk Paedrin—who is almost as green as the siblings when it comes to traveling these troubled lands. The trio is determined, and along the way they grow to trust each other—and new additions to the group—in order to accomplish their missions…whether or not those missions are one and the same.

But the Arch-Rike—ruthless ruler of Kenatos—has learned of these plans, and has sent the fearsome Kishion to destroy all those that oppose him. Now Tyrus and his unwitting allies must face down not only the plague, but this new enemy—and fulfill their quest before a fresh horror is unleashed on the world…
