For the Rhauli people, the world has just gotten a lot bigger. Gavin, now the unchallenged leader of the Rhauli, finds that life with the slave "rebellion" is much more about staying alive than fighting back. The former slaves want the Rhauli to assimilate-forget about their history, culture, and the battle they just fought against the Orinai. But for Gavin, the wounds are too fresh and the stakes are too high to give up now. Meanwhile, Lhaurel is a prisoner of the Seven Sisters, the mysterious and ruthless mages who rule the Orinai capitol. But as more time passes without her magic, she finds it harder to keep resisting her new Sisters. But Lhaurel might not be enough to protect the Rahuli anymore. Her powers are a secret worth killing for and the Orinai are coming once again. To keep his people alive, Gavin must earn the trust of the former slaves or they won't stand a chance against the approaching Orinai army.

“What on earth would I gain from that?” I asked him. “Risk my own neck by violating my banishment just to leave you? The sentence placed on me if I return is execution. If I’m entering the mountains again, I’d damn well better get something out of it.” Exiled from the Silverwood and the people she loves, Mae has few illusions about ever returning to her home. But when she comes across three out-of-place strangers in her wanderings, she finds herself contemplating the unthinkable: risking death to help a deposed queen regain her throne. And if anyone can help Mona Alastaire of Lumen Lake, it is a former Woodwalker—a ranger whose very being is intimately tied to the woods they are sworn to protect. Mae was once one of the best, and despite the potential of every tree limb to become the gibbet she’s hanged from, she not only feels a duty to aid Mona and her brothers, but also to walk beneath her beloved trees once more. A grand quest in the tradition of great epic fantasies, filled with adventure and the sharp wit—and tongue—of a unique hero, Woodwalker is the perfect novel to start your own journey into the realm of magical fiction.

"For nine months of the year, the sands of the Sharani Desert are safe. The genesauri--giant, flying, serpentine monsters who hunt across the desert in enormous packs--lie dormant. The smallest of their kind is able to take down a single man with ease, and the largest is able to swallow entire clans. The people of the desert have always been able to predict the creatures' appearance, but this year, the genesauri have stopped following the rules. When the genesauri suddenly attack her clan, seventeen-year-old Lhaurel draws a sword in her people's defense--a forbidden practice for women of any clan--and is sentenced to death by her own people. Chained to a rock and left to be eaten by the next wave of genesauri, Lhaurel is rescued by a mysterious, elusive clan said to curse children at a glance, work unexplainable terrors, and disappear into the sands without a trace. With the fate of the clans hanging in the balance, Lhaurel discovers she possesses a rare and uncontrollable power--one that will be tested as the next deadly genesauri attack looms on the horizon and the clash between clans grows more inevitable by the hour."

IT IS A TRUTH UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED that geeky guys never get to date the pretty girls with permanent scowls. To Elliott Bennett, life is simple. It's all parties, skateboarding, and arguing over who would win in a fight between Hulk and Superman with his friends. It's his senior year, and he wants nothing more than to soak up his final year of freedom before real life begins. That is, until Darcy Fitzwilliam and her best friend Bridget move in to the only mansion in the neighborhood. When Elliot meets Darcy at a party, he finds out that she isn't into skateboarding (which he lives for), she hates science-fiction (which he loves), and she thinks his friends are a pack of morons (which, honestly, might be half true)-- and yet, there's something irritatingly intriguing about her. When Elliot's cousin Jake starts to date her friend Bridget, it complicates Elliot's plans to ignore the scowling Darcy for the rest of the year. Why is Darcy so . . . ugh? Elliott doesn't know, but for some reason, is determined to find out-- even if she doesn't know the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars.
