The Grim Life: Book Two

Dating is tough… especially when you’re dead.

Max and Kody never really figured life out, and their afterlife isn’t proving any easier. They were supposed to live happily ever after, escorting souls to heaven for the Big Guy—as in God—but then their boss, the mysterious angel Slade, delivered some shocking news about the undead.

Their afterlife just got a lot more complicated.

The appearance of the undead shades can only mean one thing: wraiths—the malevolent incarnation of stranded spirits. But what do they want with Kody? If that wasn’t enough for Max to worry about, Slade makes a cryptic remark about the end of Max and Kody’s relationship—and Max already resents the time Kody spends with Slade.

Kody’s family is still reeling from his death, and his sister is spiraling out of control. She blames their mother, religion, and God. When Kody and Max form a plan to help save her faith and her heart, it could bring the wraiths into the mortal world… and the boys might not have the power to fight them.

Only love can push back the darkness and heal the wounds in their hearts. But sorrow and confusion might drive a wedge between Max and Kody when they need most to stand together.

You can’t realize your dream when you’re living someone else’s.

Swimming was Brandon’s passion, the water his escape—but all of that ended when his workaholic father shifted his focus from business to training Brandon to become an Olympic champion. What Brandon once did for love is now a chore performed to stave off his controlling father’s criticism.

Brandon meets and falls in love with Tyler, a swimmer from another team. Despite their busy schedules, they find time together away from prying eyes, largely thanks to their friend Joel. But when Brandon comes out to his father, he finds himself on the street, taking shelter beneath a bridge. With the river nearby to practice in and protection from the rain, things aren’t so bad. 

Then nature turns against him, and the resulting flood might be the one obstacle he can’t overcome.

Fifteen-year-old Mick Mullins has a great life: his parents are sweet, his sister is tolerable, and his friendships are solid. But as summer descends on Queens, he prepares to turn his carefree existence upside down by disclosing a secret he has kept long enough. It’s time to work up the courage to reveal that he is not a boy, but a girl—and that her name is Michelle. Having always been the perfect, good boy, Michelle is terrified that the complicated truth will disappoint, hurt, or push away the people closest to her. She can’t continue hiding for much longer, though, because her body is turning into that of a man’s, and she is desperate to stop the development—desperate enough to consider self-medicating with hormones.

Most of all, Michelle fears that Grandpa, who is in a nursing home after a near fatal stroke, won’t survive the shock if he finds out that his favorite grandchild, and the only boy, is a girl. If she kills her beloved Grandpa by leaving Mick behind, she isn’t sure embracing her real identity will be worth the loss.

Codename: Winger One

Theo Reese is just an average high school student with a passion for hockey and an uncanny talent when it comes to computers… at least on the surface.

What his teammates, fellow students, and even his boyfriend don’t realize is that Theo leads a double life. When he’s not putting up his facade of normal, Theo is working as an agent for Tactical Operational Support, where his technical genius is more than just a hobby. At sixteen he is responsible for helping agents in the field and keeping the TOS network secure.

It’s a secret he has to keep—from everyone.

But secrecy becomes even harder when a hacker compromises the system TOS uses to track its agents and Theo’s dad goes missing. Theo must find him and stop the hacker, which means leaving the comfort of his computer screen and venturing into a very real and very deadly world.

And if that’s not enough to deal with, all the secrecy is really putting a strain on Theo’s love life.

As this unique coming of age story unfolds, Roy finds her greatest challenge in defining herself before the world does it for her—and she’s in no hurry to force herself into a slot.

Growing up Roy in a West Virginia trailer park in the early nineties is one thing, but when she gives up her childhood love for a scholarship to snooty Winchester Academy in the hunt country of Virginia, the state line isn’t the only boundary she’ll have to cross to find out what she’s really made of.

In the company of Reenie (Roy’s New Age trucker mom), her immigrant sweetheart Oscar, and the privileged Winchester girls determined to befriend her whether she likes it or not, Roy encounters one intersection after another where she must face the complex nature of her identity, and how it will shape her future.

Elpida, tome 3

Michael et Christy sont allés au bal, ils ont obtenu leur diplôme, et Michael a remporté les épreuves de sélection de l’USATF. Avec l’Université d’Oxford qui se profile à l’horizon, son avenir est prometteur et il croit que la vie a repris son cours normal après le sauvetage de Christy d’un de ses agresseurs du passé – il ne pourrait pas avoir plus tort.

Christy a été libéré d’une vie d’esclavage depuis un an et a fait de remarquables progrès, en grande partie grâce à l’amour qu’il a trouvé auprès de Michael. Mais le récent procès d’un de ses bourreaux a brisé la vie qu’il a si laborieusement construite à partir de rien, à part une incommensurable suite d’horreurs. Il doit maintenant faire face à la lourde tâche de se reconstruire une nouvelle fois.

Thimi, âgé de douze ans, a disparu depuis que Christy a quitté la Grèce et, à l’insu de tous, il s’est réfugié dans un manoir vide de Glyfada. C’est seulement en apprenant la survie de Christy qu’il sort de sa cachette. Les gens, les espaces ouverts, même le plus anodin des bruits lui font peur au-delà de toute raison. À peine plus vivant qu’un fantôme, Thimi arrive aux États-Unis sans aucune connaissance du monde extérieur – la seule constante dans sa vie se réduisant à une bille en marbre violet.

Perdus, brisés et apeurés, seul l’espoir leur donnera la force et le courage dont ils ont besoin pour recommencer leurs vies.

The Sun Dragon: Book Four

Before King Roland ruled over Earth, four dragon kingdoms fought over the plentiful planet: Ice Dragons, Sun Dragons, Earth Dragons, and Bone Dragons. One day a young dragon named Prince Grian slipped aboard the Sun Dragon ship and traveled to Earth, while on that same day, an Earth Dragon named Caden snuck away from his village. The two met and fell in love, but both were killed in battle.

The Artists, creators of the universe, were furious about the death of these true loves. As punishment, they erased the Sun Dragon race, banished the Bone Dragons to Draman, and put the Ice Dragons in the North Pole, where they could not harm the Earth Dragons. The Artists declared that the dragons would remain cursed until the true love between Grian and Caden was born again and they reunited all dragons in peace and harmony.

Years later Prince Grian is reborn, and it is up to him and his godparent, Skelly, to find his soulmate on Earth. But with the head of the Earth Dragon Protection Society, or EDPS, trying to kill him, reuniting with the love of his life seems impossible. Will Grian be able to find his match before the EDPS finds him? And if he finds Caden, will it be the true love of the prophecy?

Cristina Mera Richards’s father is the latest victim of reaper Edgar Verner. Verner and the harvesters have been preying on the hovertown of New Bayou for too long, and someone has to put an end to their carnage. Cristina Mera decides she is that someone, but because Verner is an immortal alkemist, she will have to get creative when it comes to destroying him. And the stakes only get higher when Verner decides he wants Cristina Mera—and her unique powers—as his apprentice and under his control.

As a changeling, Cristina Mera can see and hear the spirits of the dead. It’s an ability she uses to free souls from suffering when their bodies become desiccated by the withering sickness—and one Verner intends to exploit.

A way out for Cristina Mera appears in the form of Wanderer Alkemist Nikola Skazat—a woman with a long past and many secrets—whose beauty and charm entice Cristina Mera as much as the opportunity for her help against Verner. As Nikola’s apprentice, Cristina Mera might find a way to save her hovertown. But she could lose her heart along the way—or even her life.
