TASTE: Vampire Magic: (Kingdom of Blood and Ash)

D.S. Murphy

An arrogant vampire prince. A scarred rebel. A love that could destroy the kingdom.
All I wanted was freedom. Instead, I'm married off to an elite prince; a symbol to unite the two races. It was the perfect system. My body and blood, in exchange for the healing elixir and the purification engines that guard against the poisonous sky. But once I reach the palace citadel, I discover more dangers than beasts outside the gates, and more power than I ever imagined.
When a buried secret shatters my identity, I'll do anything to uncover the truth. My immortal husband - the gorgeous prince Damien - is hiding things from me, and when he discovers who I really am, I'm not sure he'll have the power to save me. But if I can unlock my new abilities, I might be strong enough to save us both--as long as his father doesn't kill me first.
Live together, die apart. It was a perfect system for nearly a century. Until me.

Such A Secret Place (Stolen Tears Book 1)

by Cortney Pearson  

Nobody cries in Itharia.

In fact, no one feels anything after their magic awakens.

Except Ambry. Ambry never developed powers ... and she feels everything.

In Itharia, tears are a rare commodity, the kind of substance only found on the black market; so precious people will kill to obtain them. When Ambry stumbles upon a vial of these enchanted tears, she finds herself the target of the tyrannical Arcaian army seeking to steal her people's magic. Handsome, battle-scarred Talon Haraway also seeks the tears for his own personal vengeance. In a world where no one feels, who can she trust? 

Her people need the tears. She needs them.

And they need her.

The Child Thief

by Bella Forrest

They call her Robin Hood...

In a world where we have government of the rich by the rich for the rich, one girl decides to fight back.

America in 2105 is beset with mass inequality, poverty and increasingly large numbers of the poor. This, combined with the breakdown of families and marriages has led to huge economic and societal burdens. A fractured and divided America ushers in an authoritarian government that promises to solve all these problems in one stroke with a radical solution.

Welcome to the CRAS: the Child Redistribution Adoption System. Also known as the cure for America’s failing economy, it is the bane of nineteen-year-old Robin Sylvone’s existence.

Under the System, millions of poor families have their children taken and given to the rich. And as a single teen mother, Robin fell within the scope of the scheme and lost her baby two years ago. After being forced to drop out of school and become a factory worker in order to support herself, she doesn’t see much light in her future—or hold any hope of seeing her child again.

Until she stumbles upon a group of misfits who share her frustrations and desire for change. They are an underground movement of thieves, stealing children back from the rich and returning them to the poor.

Robin will do anything to find her daughter, even if it means tangling with a government that has zero tolerance for rebellion.

Even when the penalty is death.

Will Robin find her baby girl? Or is she destined to the same fate that all other rebels have met at the hands of the United Nation of America?

The Key: The True Reign Series, Book 1

by Jennifer Anne Davis  

Seventeen-year-old Rema lives in a brutal kingdom where travel between regions is forbidden, people are starving, and looking at someone the wrong way can mean death. Nineteen-year-old Darmik is the king’s son and Commander of the King’s Army. He spends his days roaming the island, doing his father’s bidding and trying to maintain control over the people.

When a chance encounter throws Rema and Darmik together, they share an instantaneous connection, but any sort of relationship between them is strictly forbidden. Darmik’s brother, the Crown Prince, notices Darmik’s interest in Rema and, in a calculated, political move, blackmails her. Faced with an impossible choice, Rema is forced to sacrifice her heart in order to save her family.

As Rema is taken to the palace with the Crown Prince, Darmik confronts the growing rumor that a legitimate blood heir to the throne exists and is trying to overthrow Darmik’s family. In Darmik’s quest to hunt down and kill the threat, he discovers that nothing is as it seems. Locked in the king’s castle, Rema finds herself a key player in a massive power struggle. When Darmik shows up, she’s not sure if she can trust him. The line between friends, enemies, and loyalty becomes blurred. As truths are unlocked, Rema understands that she just might be the key to finding the rightful heir and restoring peace to the kingdom . . . if she can manage to stay alive long enough.
