Emerge: The Awakening: (Immortals of Indriell Book 1)

byMelissa A. Craven

Allie has always thought of herself as a loner—until she moves to a new town and finds herself caught up in a dangerous world of immortality and power she never knew existed.

Surrounded by strange new friends and even stranger circumstances, the dark void of her past casts an ominous cloud over Allie’s new life. Sparks fly between Allie and Aidan as she finds herself drawn to him and his friends in ways she can’t explain.

As Allie approaches her sixteenth birthday, a latent Immortal power awakens deep inside her. She must learn to adapt to her power before it overwhelms her. But she’s sixteen years behind her peers, and as one of the most powerful Immortals of her generation, she has precious little time to catch up.

As her first gifts begin to emerge, Allie finds her footing, but she still feels like the normal mortal girl she always thought she was.

But there is nothing normal about Allie Carmichael.

Allie’s past harbors dark secrets she can't even fathom. Secrets that could not only change her life, but the lives of everyone around her.

Gen OneKindle Edition

byAmy Bartelloni

Generations after robots conquered Earth, the remaining population survives in the ash of their defeat. Within their walls in Authority City, bots test and develop super soldiers. Rumors of horrible experiments are enough to keep humans in line. At least, most humans.

Eighteen-year-old Delilah O’Connor scavenges the ruins with her friend Zane, and Gen, a generation one bot they repaired off the grid. Gen’s curiosity gives Delilah hope for the future, but not enough hope to go against the Authority. She finds Zane’s dreams of a human resistance pointless, and it’s enough to keep their on-and-off relationship mostly off.

When they discover two dead guards in a shady trading stop known as the Banks, everything changes. Framed for the murders and pursued by Authority bots, Zane takes Delilah to the only safe space he knows—the headquarters for the Human Coalition. Even there Zane isn’t safe. When he’s captured, Delilah and Gen must join an unlikely alliance of bot and human to go in to Authority City and save him before he becomes another casualty. Things in Authority City aren’t as they seem, they’re worse. Delilah might lose more than her friend within its walls.

byElisa S. Amore


Drake is an Angel of Death. After losing his fiancée Stella during WWII, he’s become a lethal Executioner—as his brothers call him, “a ladykiller in every sense of the word.” All he’s required to do is end the lives of the mortals assigned to him and accompany their Souls to Heaven—but Drake likes to show them a good time in the process.

Until his own life is taken and he ends up in Hell.

The Witches, queens of the underworld, keep Drake prisoner in their castle. There, as their slave, he fights battles to amuse them . . . and excite them. He finds life in the Castle has its perks, and decides he might as well enjoy it—until the day he learns that Stella is also in Hell, wandering the Dark Copse, alone and in grave danger. Drake is determined to find her, no matter what dangers or evil creatures he must face.

When he does, though, he finds Stella is no longer the girl he once knew. Hell has hardened her and she’s on the verge of losing her last shred of humanity. Drake must do everything in his power and more to win her back . . .

Told in Drake’s inimitable quirky voice, Elisa S. Amore’s new adventure will cast you into the very heart of Hell. Dark Tournament is an action-packed novel that follows the adventures of two Souls who are ready to do everything they can to survive the dangers of Hell . . . unless they wind up killing each other first.

INTENSE. ROMANTIC. FUN.

So You Think Your Sister's a Vampire? 

(The Chronicles of Cassidy Book 1)

byID Johnson

Don’t trust anyone, not even yourself….

You think you know someone pretty well, until you’re awoken in the middle of the night to the sound of unfamiliar voices and realize your sister’s being swept away by some supernatural creatures who climb in and out of windows and leap from two-story houses like it’s nothing.

My parents tried to tell me everything was fine, but when Cadence finally did come back from wherever they’d taken her, I knew there was something unusual about my older sister.

Now, her best friend is dead.

Her ex-boyfriend is acting bizarre.

And I’m afraid I might be next.

My name is Cassidy Findley, and I’m pretty sure my sister is a vampire, despite her “co-worker” making every effort to brainwash me into believing otherwise. With the help of my two best friends, we vow to get to the bottom of this before it’s too late, and my sister starts to claim other victims. I love her, but I won’t be turned, nor will I just sit by without doing everything I can to stop her. I can only hope that I’m not too late and that I can trust my own memories.

Because I’m pretty sure my sister’s friends are coming for me next.
