Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

something

 

 

Philadelphia 1876. The Dead are rising. A zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor Fitt. Whoever controls the Dead Army has  her brother. She avoids her mother’s choice of husband for the lab of Spirit Hunters, including the maddeningly stubborn  yet handsome Daniel. The situation threatens her reputation, and the lives of everyone in the city.

 

 

The Veil (Devil Isle #1) by Chloe Neill

the veil

 Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was  engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that  humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil’s Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped  through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding  her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no  control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the  French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his  way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…

 

Scorched by Jennifer L Armentrout

Sometimes life leaves a mark…

Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit  bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of  minutes. Until now.

Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more  love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious  that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls  apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.

Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…

a court of thorns and roses

 A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Timesbestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending  Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for  it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an  animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through  every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow  grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is  impossible to put down!
