Homeless, broke, and hungry, seventeen-year-old Birdie Orin is running out of options. That is, until a chance meeting with a bearded stranger in a trench coat changes everything. He promises more money than she’s ever dreamed of and an amulet of power once owned by Viking lords. Cool, but there’s a catch. He informs her she’s the last descendant of a Nordic tribe, and the necklace that grants her supernatural abilities is cursed. Only she can free the souls of hundreds of Viking warriors trapped in a spell cast by one of two rival kings.

Her mysterious benefactor warns the spell chunking king still seeks the amulet, and she must choose a Guardian to assist in her quest. Wary of dependence on anyone, she makes a hesitant alliance with handsome new friend, Grey Matthews. Though she’s got no desire to see him skewered on the end of a Viking sword, he’s determined to help. Passionate and caring, Grey breaks down the walls Birdie’s built around her heart. She would do almost anything for the peace and love that’s eluded her until now, but first, they’ve got a mission. Together, they must travel back in time to find the means of destroying the amulet, before those who would use its power for evil find them.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has always been different — she’s years ahead of the other kids in school and can read minds. She’s always assumed there’s some kind of logical explanation for her talents, but when she meets an adorable and mysterious boy, she finds out the shocking truth. She’s never felt at home because she, well, … isn’t.

There are secrets buried deep in her memory, secrets about her true identity and why she was hidden among humans, that others desperately want and would even kill for. And she must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world, before the wrong person finds the answer first.

In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.

Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.

Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not intefere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society and into the pits of the human soul. And as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper’s abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe, but she also learns to love as she has never loved before.

I find all of these are pretty great and I’m really anticipating reading them. I especially like the cover for Crux, and the blurb for The Glimpse is very intriguing. I’m also loving the Keeper of the Lost Cities vibe. It seems to be aimed at fans of Rick Riordan and JK Rowling (which I both adore).
Thoughts on these new pretties?
