Miss Me Not by Tiffany King

They had a pact. Leave the world behind much as they had lived it. No one would miss them. No harm, no foul. Their personal demons would be left behind once and for all. It was the only thing they could count on. It was all she had.

Madison Hanson has spent the last four years being a “shadow.” Her parents ignore her. The students at her school stopped talking to her years ago, and the majority of her teachers forget she’s even there. In her desperate yearning to leave her invisible life behind, Madison makes a pact with her only friend, James Garrison, to end their lives as inconspicuously as they live them. No fuss, no muss. No one would miss her and she would miss no one. Their plan is set, and it’s all she can count on. That is, until fellow student, Mitch Peterson, beats them to the punch. Everything Madison believed in is shaken to the core when she watches the aftermath of Mitch’s death unfold. By taking his own life, Mitch unwittingly saves hers. What a selfish prick.

She is now left with the daunting task of living. Trying to bury her demons once and for all, and finally trusting someone with her fragile existence.

Living is hell. Death would have been so much easier.

The Conduit by Stacey Rourke

All 18-year-old Celeste Garrett wants is to head off to college and make those fun, yet ill-advised, choices college kids are known for.  And maybe to spend some time with the hot cameraman she just met.  Instead, because of a pact her ancestors made in the 17th century with a mythical creature, she has to save the world.

While normal kids are slamming energy drinks and cramming for exams, Celeste will get her adrenaline rush fighting a fire breathing dragon.  She wants to meet friends in the quad to exchange lecture notes, but first she must exchange blows with a shapeshifting demon on the rooftop.  Life isn’t always fair for a superhero, but at least she doesn’t have to do it alone.  With her brother and sister as sidekicks, they alternate between saving lives and getting on each others’ nerves.  Together the trio encounters unspeakable odds, mystical forces and comes face-to-face with an image that will haunt them forever—their grandmother in a leopard print bikini.

Willow by Amy Richie

“Being a werewolf is harder than it looks. Everyone thinks it’s just morph at the full moon, kill, morph back. That’s not true. It’s a lot harder than that. Especially if you are seventeen years old.”

Willow has the worst luck. First she has to deal with her narcissistic foster mother, Bella; then of course there’s her horrid little sister Ivy; not to mention the pack of werewolves that belong to Bella. Now, they have to move and start a new school – again.

Just when Willow thinks things can’t get any worse, Blake shows up from a council she never knew existed to name her leader of a pack she never knew existed. How was she supposed to teach a bunch of teenagers how to be wolves when she herself hated everything about her life?

Moon Swell by Erin Irvin

“I flew across the table with inhuman speed and wrapped my hands around his thick neck. ‘I’m the last she-wolf on this planet. If you’re going to see me as the great hope, then you better respect me!'”

For March Howe, the only surviving she-wolf, getting kidnapped comes with the territory. Like shifting in and out of her lupine form, she starts to take it in stride. But there are still plenty of things she doesn’t expect: Greyson at Glenbrook High, the author of that anonymous note, and her unique path to were-spirituality. And then of course, there are those feelings for Avery…

Nothing is like it should be—the frigids love her while her friends hate her and just when she’s getting to know Gaia, her rage is controlling her more than ever. Meanwhile, Avery and the pack are starting to over-protect her to the point of suffocation. But rebelling against them doesn’t make things easier. In fact, it sets off a chain reaction of events that lead to shocking revelations and a turning point in her journey of self-discovery. Why can’t she resist Jasper’s flirtations? And what could Avery’s mysterious past possibly have to do with her own history?

In Book Four of the Lone March Series, March Howe has to figure out who she can trust, and who’s pretending. In her evolving love triangle, she must decide who’s best for her. And when strange things reveal themselves, it’s time for her to finally come to terms with the fact that she’s different. Will these secrets earn her the trust and respect she deserves from her pack or will the last of the were-wolves go beyond protection…and lock her up once and for all?
