— Tracy M Joyce, author of The Chronicles of Altaica
On a toxic planet, humans live in floating cities, relying on the strength and courage of the Riders for survival.
Subria is going to be one of the few, a Rider dedicated to scouting the food and resources her people need to survive, but first she has to pass the entrance exam. Of course, it’s more than just an exam, it’s a chance to attain the one thing that a Rider needs above all others; a steed.
The bond between these genetically engineered companions and their riders is legendary, and Subria wants it almost as much as she wants to follow in her father’s footsteps as a Rider. Legends might be all she ever gets to know it as though, because as soon as the test starts, something goes terribly, terribly wrong.
Now, Subria’s no longer fighting for a dream, she’s in a battle for survival.
Hunter is the first action packed instalment in The Hero Rebellion, a YA sci-fi series perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, featuring genetically engineered companions, illegal street races and a butt-kicking heroine who won’t take no for an answer.
"Magick runs in your bloodstream."
Grandma always told us we came from a powerful bloodline. A bloodline derived from one of the strongest witches in New Orleans past.
Mom disagrees. Had us believing it was nothing but lies.
Wanting to get us away from grandma and her fanciful ideas, Mom moves us in with her boyfriend. Sticks us in the French Quarter. A place where my family isn't welcome.
My new status quo: life in shambles.
Everything is changing. Mom is always working to pay the new, higher bills, my sister is experimenting with magick, and my brother, I think, maybe drugs. Forced to start at a new school and attempt to make new friends, I'm now having nightmares, seeing ghosts, getting teased as a witch, and preyed on by vampires. Plus, there's the creepy, stalker ancestor in my head.
But to all my crazy, there's a silver lining. I'm seeing a new, amazing guy, named Phillip... if Mom's overbearing boyfriend doesn't chase him away. Phillip doesn't know about the supernatural world crashing in around me and I'd like to keep it that way. He is the calm to my chaos.
And my mom's boyfriend, just may be the triggering cause of my surrounding storm.
How do I straighten out my family and uncover my own personal truth, when the devil in the works might possibly be sleeping under the same roof?
The fact that my family isn't welcome in the French Quarter is a message I keep receiving from the local practitioners. Stay out, keep to my own business. Only, my family and friends are my business. And both my mom and my friend have serious magickal issues that stem from the Quarter, and the people that operate there.
I refuse to keep to my tiny space in the world when dark influences from the past are trying to take control of my mom. Or the bokor's magick seeks to own my friend or destroy her family. That's not who I am or who I want to be. I'm going to get involved, do whatever I can to keep my loved ones safe. And hopefully, the power thrumming in my family's blood will give me the edge.
I may be a high school kitchen witch, new to the craft, but I refuse to be intimidated by anyone or anything. Is stubborn determination a pro or a con when it comes to protecting my clan?
Arianna is the youngest daughter of a siren. To become a siren herself, she must kill a man and sacrifice his heart to the God of the Deep. But she never expected to be assigned to kill a prince or to fall in love with him.
Torn between her family and her new love, Ari must decide what lies in the depths of her soul.
