The Brilliant Death

Amy Rose Capetta

Capetta’s (Echo After Echo, 2017) latest, the first in a duology, is an Italian-inspired fantasy about Teodora di Sangro, daughter of a high lord of Vinalia and a Strega who can transform her enemies into decorative objects. She keeps her magic a secret from everyone, including her siblings. But when the ruler of Vinalia poisons the patriarchs of the country, including Teodora’s father, she uses her power to protect her family. Disguised as a boy, she travels across the mountains in search of Cielo, a wise shapeshifter who can teach Teo how to use her power to defeat the nation's corrupt ruler. Together they learn more about the depths of their magic, the secrets of their country, and the truth of their growing feelings for each other.

Sarah J. Maas

As war erupts across the world, Maas' explosive Throne of Glass series draws to an epic and unforgettable conclusion. Aelin has risked everything to save her people but at a tremendous cost.

With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra are the last line of defense against the Erawan and total destruction. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths while, across the sea, Rowan hunts to find his captured queen before she’s lost to him forever. As the threads of fate weave together, everyone must fight if they're to have a chance at a future.

The Light Between Worlds

Laura E. Weymouth

Weymouth’s YA debut is a haunting historical fantasy about two sisters Evelyn and Philippa Hapwell who lived for years in a strange and beautiful kingdom. During the London Blitz of 1944, the sisters sought refuge from air strikes in a bomb shelter. As the city burned, they were swept away to the Woodlands, an enchanted forest straight out of myth and legend. Six years later, they returned to London unchanged physically but possessing a lifetime of experiences. Evelyn is desperate to go back to the Woodlands but Philippa just wants to move on. After Ev goes missing, Philippa is consumed with guilt and wonders if her sister found a way back to the only place she ever considered home.
