<strong>When a rogue 19-year-old witch is recruited to help guard an ancient magical Bestiary, mystery and danger ensue...</strong><br />_____________________________________________<br /><br /><strong><em>Being an empath has its advantages.</em></strong><br /><br />Harley Merlin can sense people’s emotions, among other things. It’s how she snagged her first job pinpointing cheaters at a casino.<br /><br />But she has no clue where she got these freakish powers because she spent her childhood jumping from home to home in the foster system, and her father left her with nothing more than a cryptic note.<br /><br />Then she crosses paths with a terrifyingly real monster. Which is when a mysterious and annoyingly arrogant young warlock named Wade Crowley steps in, introducing her to a hidden world of beasts, magicals, and covens riddled with secrets—as well as clues about her murky past.<br /><br />Whether she likes it or not, this new world is where she belongs. But after a disturbing twist of events, Harley quickly realizes that her past is darker than she could ever have imagined.<br /><br />And that someone in the coven is out for her blood.<br /><br />With the help of Wade and her new friends, she must figure out who the traitor is and why they’re targeting her... Before the human and magical worlds dangerously collide.<br /><br /><strong>Potter fans, welcome to an exciting new world.</strong><br /><br />_____________________________________________<br /><br /><strong>*What Early Readers Are Saying:*</strong><br /><br /><em>"I love the Harry Potter series.

<b><b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Philip Pullman returns to the parallel world of His Dark Materials--now an HBO original series starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, and Lin-Manuel Miranda--to expand on the story of Lyra, “one of fantasy’s most indelible heroines” (<i>The New York Times Magazine</i>).</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Don’t miss Volume II of The Book of Dust: <i>The Secret Commonwealth</i>!</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> </b>Malcolm Polstead and his daemon, Asta, are used to overhearing news and the occasional scandal at the inn run by his family. But during a winter of unceasing rain, Malcolm finds a mysterious object—and finds himself in grave danger. <br /><br /> Inside the object is a cryptic message about something called Dust; and it’s not long before Malcolm is approached by the spy for whom this message was actually intended<i>.</i> When she asks Malcolm to keep his eyes open, he begins to notice suspicious characters everywhere: the explorer Lord Asriel, clearly on the run; enforcement agents from the Magisterium; a gyptian named Coram with warnings just for Malcolm; and a beautiful woman with an evil monkey for a daemon. All are asking about the same thing: a girl—just a baby—named Lyra.<br />  <br /> Lyra is at the center of a storm, and Malcolm will brave any peril, and make shocking sacrifices, to bring her safely through it.<b><br />  <br /> <b>“Too few things in our world are worth a seventeen-year wait: <i>The Book of Dus</i>t is one of them.” —<i>The Washington Post</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>“The book is full of wonder. . . . Truly thrilling.” —<i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>“People will love the first volume of Philip Pullman’s new trilogy with the same helpless vehemence that stole over them when <i>The Golden Compass</i> came out.” —<i>Slate</i></b><br /><br /></b>

<p><b>The Instant <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller!</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A speculative thriller in the vein of <i>The Handmaid’s Tale </i>and <i>The Power</i>. Optioned by Universal and Elizabeth Banks to be a major motion picture!</b></p><p><b>“A visceral, darkly haunting fever dream of a novel and an absolute page-turner. Liggett’s deeply suspenseful book brilliantly explores the high cost of a misogynistic world that denies women power and does it with a heart-in-your-throat, action-driven story that’s equal parts horror-laden fairy tale, survival story, romance, and resistance manifesto. I couldn’t stop reading.” – Libba Bray, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author</b></p><p><b>Survive the year.</b><br /><b></b><br />No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden. </p><p>In Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive. </p><p>Sixteen-year-old Tierney James dreams of a better life—a society that doesn’t pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear. It’s not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. Their greatest threat may very well be each other. </p><p>With sharp prose and gritty realism, <i>The Grace Year</i> examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.</p>

<b>“Intelligent and entertaining.” —<i>Kirkus Reviews </i>(starred review)</b><br /> <br /><b>“Even better than the first book.” —<i>School Library Journal</i> (starred review)</b><br /> <br /><b>Rowan and Citra take opposite stances on the morality of the Scythedom, putting them at odds, in the chilling sequel to the Printz Honor Book <i>Scythe</i> from <i>New York Times</i> bestseller Neal Shusterman, author of the Unwind dystology.</b><br /><br /><i>Humans learn from their mistakes. I cannot. I make no mistakes.</i><br /> <br />The Thunderhead is the perfect ruler of a perfect world, but it has no control over the scythedom. A year has passed since Rowan had gone off grid. Since then, he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire. His story is told in whispers across the continent.<br /> <br />As Scythe Anastasia, Citra gleans with compassion and openly challenges the ideals of the “new order.” But when her life is threatened and her methods questioned, it becomes clear that not everyone is open to the change.<br /> <br />Old foes and new enemies converge, and as corruption within the Scythedom spreads, Rowan and Citra begin to lose hope. Will the Thunderhead intervene?<br /> <br />Or will it simply watch as this perfect world begins to unravel?
