Disengaged by Jamie MaGee
Dark Romance Novel, sensitive topics—highlighted with religious elements (hope in the face of hell).
Finding herself stranded in a new city, eighteen-year-old Ember Bloom thought she’d reached her all time low. She was wrong. A mindless walk to a dead-end job landed her in the path of her gambling fathers’ enemies. Her only defense was a stranger, Slayton Winslow, a known enforcer and fighter—rumored to be Odin’s prince, underground royalty. On sight, Slayton stole her breath and rushed her heart. Slayton’s enigmatic attraction to her, how stoically he shielded her only churned Ember’s attraction to the bad boy who had given her safe haven in a real life hell. The draw to him, how he could reach her without saying a word, gave her a reason to fight, to awaken. She knew every second could be their last in the city seeded with treacherous deceit and life threatening power plays.
Exclusive Sneak Peek
City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty
Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty—an imaginative alchemy of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and One Thousand and One Nights, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts
Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.
But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to accept that the magical world she thought only existed in childhood stories is real. For the warrior tells her a new tale: across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire, and rivers where the mythical marid sleep; past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises, and mountains where the circling hawks are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass–a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound.
In that city, behind gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal. That magic cannot shield her from the dangerous web of court politics. That even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.
After all, there is a reason they say be careful what you wish for . . .
Mirror of Stone by Corie J. Weaver
Trapped by her mother’s death into caretaking for her alcoholic father, sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weber dreams of escape, but doesn’t know what else to do with her life on the backwater colony moon of Travbon.
The death of an old prospector in her family’s inn puts an extraordinary object in her hands. Over time the object bewitches her with scenes of a mysterious city populated by strange figures. When Eleanor’s Aunt Susan threatens to take the bar from her, Eleanor realizes her father can no longer help anyone, and runs away to find the beautiful city.
Adam Cole resents his work. Stuck in his job as a Guardsman, kept from joining the Navy and defending the interplanetary traders from unknown attackers, he is sent after Eleanor with puzzling orders. Retrieve the girl and more importantly, the pack she carries.
Adam’s grandfather Jake Cole, a veteran of the civil war that shook the Claro system fifty years ago, helps Adam trace threads of the mystery back to the shadowy Olympia Norris, the old woman who rules the governing council.
Together, Eleanor and Adam must race to expose the secret that Olympia has hidden for two generations, and prevent an impending genocide.
