First, I’d like to announce that the winner of Michelle Muto’s Don’t Fear the Reaper is M. R. Buttars. Congratulations, M. R.!
Several of my friends released new books in October. Rather than do individual posts on new releases, I’ve decided to add a feature to my blog in which, at the beginning of the month, I list the books that have come out in the previous month.
And now, here are the books:
AFTER by Marla Bowie LePley (YA dystopian)
Ger, Laney, and Jenny, three teens who have never met, live a terrifying existence after all the adults suddenly die. Rioting, starvation and fear become a way of life. When psychotic teenager, Roc, takes over a secluded mountain town, they must come together and find a way to end his reign of terror.
Created (book 3 of the Watched series) by Cindy Hogan (YA suspense)
Ari and her friends find themselves in an independent spy school in Belgium, Bresen Academy. Test scores reveal her true abilities and the director wants to send her onto to more advanced training school immediately. She is given a two week reprieve to explore the school’s training program and hopefully make amends with both Reese and Marybeth. Despite her lack of advanced training, the director convinces Ari she would be the best fit for a mission that surfaces in Prague with a group calling themselves Division 57. Uncertain, but wanting to please, she agrees. She quickly discovers there is nothing easy about being a spy and finds her very life on the line.
Beguilded (book 2 of the Immortal Essence series) by RaShelle Workman (YA sci-fi romance)
Venus has become immortal, just as she always wanted. In the process she hurt Zaren, lost Michael, and destroyed her family.
At least that’s what she believed.
Turns out Ramien, the god of her planets’ underworld, has her parents, and Michael.
To save them, Venus makes a deal. She must complete three trials. They seem impossible. They certainly won’t be easy. Worst of all, someone she loves won’t make it out alive.
Rise of a Rector (the final book of the Channeler series) by Heather McCorkle (YA Paranormal)
With graduation~and the hell of the last two years~behind her, Eren is hoping to finally explore her relationship with Aiden and deepen the bonds with her Society. But it seems there’s no rest for a soon-to-be legendary Mayan warrior of the apocalypse.
From the green hills of Ireland to the jungles of Mexico, and deep into lands unexpected, Eren and Aiden will stop at nothing to discover all they can about their rare power in an attempt to alter destiny. Learning about ancient secrets that no one can remember proves to be more than challenging with Eren seeing old ghosts at every turn though. Worse yet, behind the ghosts lies something darker and far more deadly than any of the trials she has endured so far.
In the jungles of Costa Rica entire villages are dying inexplicably. Near the carnage live a group of channelers who are hiding a thousand year old secret, one that could change the very fate of the planet. But the ghosts of Eren’s past have other plans, plans to seize the thread of destiny~and Eren~and manipulate both.
