Supreme in their dominion over seasons,
storms, and sea, the witches have forgotten the unmatched
destructiveness of mankind. And among the weapons men seek are the
magical songs of the witches. Born of witches but raised among their
enemies, Lilette searches for a way to heal the rift between mankind
and the witches. But it may be too late to save either. For if there
is one thing Lilette has come to know for certain, it’s that all

Stone have yearned for Evie Starling. When both men claim to be her

she’s not the person she thought she was, and her soul is about to
become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war.
AWAKENING – Christy Dorrity
When an ancient curse threatens McKayla

is fantasy. Based in Celtic mythology, Awakening is a gripping young

THE FORGOTTEN ONES – Laura Howard
Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.
What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his fairy tale about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.
ELEMENTAL HUNGER – Elana Johnson
Sixteen-year-old Gabriella Kilpatrick
can shoot fire from her hands, which would be great if she didn’t
get blamed for a blazing inferno that kills 17 schoolmates. Gabby
will have to learn who she can trust, how to control her own power,
and most of all, how to lead a Council of Elementals, most of whom
have more control over their power than she does. If she can’t,
she’ll find herself just like those 17 schoolmates: burned and six

attacking ghost. Her act of heroism attracts the attention of the
evil spirit, and she finds herself entrenched in the middle of a
sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening her own life
as well as that of her friends.
