Reawakening (The Passage of Hellsfire Book 3) by Marc Johnson:
To undo a mistake made a thousand years in the past, the wizard Hellsfire used his magic to bring down the Great Barrier that once divided the northern and southern lands. In doing so, he nearly brought war to his own homeland, and he afflicted the love of his life, Princess Krystal of Alexandria, with a potent and deadly curse.
Since then, Hellsfire has been working in Tyree with its Elemental Council, to rebuild its war-torn land and find a way to break Krystal’s curse. Now Krystal’s time is running out. As the princess fights for her life, Hellsfire learns that the wizard responsible for the curse—his old enemy Premier—is heading to the Burning Sands to steal the mysterious Jewel of Dakara.
If Hellsfire can capture Premier and learn the secret of the curse, he can save Krystal. But the Jewel of Dakara holds its own deadly secrets, and the hunt will take Hellsfire farther than he ever imagined, and cost him more than he bargained for.
The past is never gone nor buried...

Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fi ght not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.
Join Krista in her quest to survive in this thrilling apocalyptic novel by Pembroke Sinclair.
Evolve by Chad Grills:
In the near future, Americans lounge in comfort while humanity declines. Technological growth has outpaced humanity’s willpower, and dangerous new forms of disease, mental illness, and terrorism ravage the globe. Despite looming extinction level threats, most of humanity is addicted to their social streams, Edutain’s, or personalized prescriptions called Specials to stay, “happy."
On the morning of National C&C Day, sixteen year old Micah Greene is terrified. In just hours, he’ll enter his twenty year long contract for either: college and/or a career, the military, or basic income duty. He hates the thought of being forced into twenty years of work, but he hates the prison he’s been forced to live in even more.
Micah’s last chance at freedom lies in qualifying as “dark talent” before he receives his C&C day contract.
But everything isn’t as it seems, and being labeled dark talent might not be a way to freedom. It might be a death sentence.
Reflection: The Stranger in the Mirror (Records of the Ohanzee #1) by Rachel R. Smith:
An Heiress, an ancient prophecy, and a masquerade...
Nerissa, the Heiress of Chiyo, prepares for the masquerade celebrating the twentieth anniversary of a thwarted assassination attempt on her family. Longing to be admired for herself and not her title, she arranges to switch costumes and enjoy the ball in blissful anonymity. But, when the fateful night finally comes, a prophetic warning of a second attack arrives too late, and the evening turns from revelry and romance to violence. After being pulled from the chaos by an enigmatic guardian, Nerissa learns that the Royal Family has been concealing a formidable secret for generations--and it is only one of many that are about to be revealed.
Crystallum (The Primordial Principles Book 1) by Laney McMann:
Kadence Sparrow wasn't born a devil's child—she was turned into one. Now, she's hiding from the truth, and running for her life.
For years, Kade's true nature has lurked behind an illusion, so when her dad gets another job transfer, she knows the drill: no close friends, no boyfriends, and most importantly: don't expose what she is. Ever. Keeping secrets is easy. Lies are second nature. So is the loneliness—and the fear, but when the Shadows attack, and Kade meets Cole Spires, she could expose everything she's trying to hide.
As one of the Celestial Children, Cole lives by an oath: defend the Ward, protect the Primordial race, guard the gateways, and stick to his own. Everything else is a distraction, and besides, he’s lost enough. Cole's job is clear, and no one his age does it better. So, when he meets Kade in a club downtown, he assumes she just wants his attention. Most girls do, but Cole soon realizes ... Kade isn't like most girls.
The children of heaven and hell are living among us, fighting an age-old war. And falling for someone from the opposition is not an option. But a chance encounter between Kade and Cole will blur the rules, as Kade's journey to keep her truth hidden catapults them together and into a web of lies, forcing her to not only face the demon inside her, but to answer the hardest question of all.
Which is thicker—blood or water?
