(AQUARATHI NOVELLA)
YOUNG ADULT
AVAILABLE TODAY

They say that love is the death of duty …

Speio Marin is land-bound, tied to the side of the Waterfell queen-to-be, Nerissa. There’s only one problem–she wants nothing to do with any of the Aquarathi or her undersea kingdom, preferring instead the freedom of pretending to be human. Torn between his own desires and his duty to serve his future queen, he spirals into an abyss of malcontent. Speio’s mistrust of humans is no secret, and he sees them only as a threat to the existence of his people.

Until he meets Anya Delmonico–a mysterious and enigmatic girl, teetering on the edge of survival. Anya is sedate and secretive, yet reckless enough to brave a hundred-foot cliff jump. Caught between a dark past and an ex-boyfriend who refuses to let her go, Anya knows that getting involved with anyone new is the last thing she should do. But when her past catches up to her, Speio turns out to be the only one she can trust, refusing to let her face her demons alone.

When Anya discovers the truth about Speio, putting her life in mortal danger from the Aquarathi as well as her own sinister pursuers, will he risk everything to protect her? Or will he choose duty above all?

AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 22 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts.

She is the author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, PW, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was an Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in New York with her husband and three children.

Shadows and Light by Melissa Haag
Publication date: May 15th 2014
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult
 
Synopsis:

Three paranormal novellas

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light

I don’t know what I am, but I’m not human…and neither are the creatures that killed my mom. Running will only carry me so far because there’s a darkness within me, ready to destroy me, and a burning light, begging for escape. It’s the light that screams to my pursuers and works them into a frenzy. Though the darkness might kill me, releasing the light might kill us all…

WarWolf: Half breed

Ema fights to suppress her werewolf emotions and deny her warlock powers. It isn’t easy being a half-breed, but she is determined to slide through life unnoticed by either group. When the warlock leaders team up with humans to force paranormal registration, Ema believes she must choose between her two unwanted worlds. An unexpected companion shows her not all emotions are bad, and power has its benefits.

Moved
“Werewolves are real but the legends are wrong…”

It’s the secret Gillian’s father has tried to keep from her and the reason he’s so overprotective. But, he goes too far when he exiles Gillian to a house in the middle of nowhere. Her new landlord, Racer, is more like a cute jailer who has strict orders to keep her safely trapped.

Battle lines between independence and obligation are drawn as Gillian decides just how far she’s willing to go to win back her freedom. And Racer needs to decide what he’s willing to endure to keep her close.

Reap the Shadow, Slay the Light

After suffering at the hands of her step brother, Pheobe runs to Willam and discovers there’s more to the world than what she knew: Shadows will kill her if they find her light.

I didn’t know he’d entered the room until he tried to say something to me.  I didn’t wait to hear what.  Instead, with hands curled into fists, I came up swinging.  I wanted to punch him in the face to knock the whistle right out of him, but my right hand landed solidly against his chest.  I almost stopped, surprised at my misjudgment.  My swing had been really off.  I’d never noticed we weren’t the same size.  It just made me angrier that he was taller…by a lot.  So, instead of stopping, I continued to rain blows on his chest.

He stood still, taking it all with silence.

Then, like a burst balloon, the rage left me.  For several moments, I just stood there staring at my fists still rested against his chest.  Neither of us moved as my breathing slowed.  Drained and shaking, I lifted my tear-streaked face to his.

“I will hate them until I die.  Someday, I might hate you too…but not today.”

His face held no judgment.  He opened his arms and pulled me against the chest I’d just pummeled.

“I know,” he whispered against my hair.
