Thriller

The Fatherless by Braedan Lalor

The Fatherless by Braedan Lalor

Three young souls are locked into a life and death struggle inside a bloodthirsty youth culture.

Fire, wilderness, poisoned steel and catacombs. Get ready for Alastar’s urban war.

Being born was easy. Being stolen from our mothers — tougher, but Alastar and Sophia had to focus on two things: accruing strength and survival.

Being different didn’t help Sophia because extreme sensitivity isn’t always a gift. It helped Alastar though because he had been born cold — like all of the best soldier class operatives.

Survival of the ruthless is the norm, but it’s the will of the Legend that’s the new rule. This book tips its hat to classics such Ender’s Game but has been described as the Outsiders meets Hunger Games.

Time Travel

Marking Time by April White

Marking Time by April White

Winner of the 2016 Library Journal Indie E-Book Award – YA

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything … a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a Tube station transports Saira to the nineteenth century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War, and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.

Fantasy

Palace of Glass by K. Gorman

Palace of Glass by K. Gorman

After their escape from occupied Ryarne, Mieshka, Aiden, and the rest of their crew can’t wait to touch down in Mersetzdeitz. The city is safe, secure, and promises to get Mieshka started on the one thing she wants most: learning to control her Fire Element and the Phoenix along with it.

But not all is as it seems. A deadly plot has dethroned the last Council Head, over half the Council is either missing or murdered, and, with attacks hitting the city daily, security is stretched thin.

It isn’t long before Mieshka is thrown head-long into a race to save the government, the city, her friends, and herself. With the Phoenix burning ever hotter under her skin, and enemies moving fast around her, it’ll take every bit of power and cunning her team can come up with to get out alive.
