Clockwork Angel

 

When sixteen-year-old orphan Tessa Gray's older brother suddenly vanishes, her search for him leads her into Victorian-era London's dangerous supernatural underworld, and when she discovers that she herself is a Downworlder, she must learn to trust the demon-killing Shadowhunters if she ever wants to learn to control her powers and find her brother.

 

Clockwork Angel is the first book in The Infernal Devices trilogy, itself a prequel to the popular Mortal Instruments Series.  Much like in the mortal instruments series our main protagonist is a young woman, in this case Tessa Gray, and also an outsider to the world of the Shadowhunters. 

The Girl of Fire and Awesome

The Girl of Fire and Thorns

 

Best book ever? OF COURSE IT IS!!!!!!! Okay, maybe not. I'm not entirely objective right now, having just finished the glorious prose that is Rae Carson's debut novel, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, but I will commit to saying that it's easily one of the most interesting, rewarding books I've read this year and last. Plus, it's a 2014 Sequoyah nominee!

Rot & Ruin

Rot & Ruin

 

In a post-apocalyptic world where fences and border patrols guard the few people left from the zombies that have overtaken civilization, fifteen-year-old Benny Imura is finally convinced that he must follow in his older brother's footsteps and become a bounty hunter.

The Demon Trapper's Daughter

Riley Blackthorne is not having a good year--her mom died of cancer, her dad is struggling to pay off the medical bills, and she isn't allowed to trap anything higher than a Grade One Demon. How is she ever supposed to move up in the Trappers' Guild?

Set in Atlanta in 2018, The Demon Trapper's Daughter explores a world in which economies are collapsing, demons roam the land, and life is getting pretty bleak. Riley has to figure out how to survive not only the loss of family and friends, but even day-to-day life. What's wrong with the Holy Water? Why do the demons call her by name? And how can she get her Guild to see her as more than a child?
