Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Review:

"Gorgeously crafted, atmospheric, and original." Melissa Marr, NYT bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

Review:

"A lush Southern gothic." Holly Black, NYT bestselling author of Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale

Review:

"A hauntingly delicious dark fantasy." Cassandra Clare, NYT bestselling author of City of Bones

Review:

"A potent mix of the gothic, the mythic, and the magical....With original characters, complex world building, and crackling prose, this is masterful storytelling." Deborah Harkness, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Discovery of Witches on the Beautiful Creatures novels

Review:

"Like a thick, hot Carolina summer, this story seeps into you until it's all you can think about." Carrie Ryan, NYT bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

Synopsis:

The town of Gatlin has never seen anyone like Lena Duchannes. Her secrets — and her powers — will shake the town and the life of Ethan Wate, the boy who's drawn to her.

Synopsis:

Plagued by waking visions and nightmares, sixteen-year-old Faye thinks she’s going crazy. Fast. She can hardly blame her parents when they ship her off to the prison-like Holbrook Academy for treatment. On her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school, like she’s come home. But when strange and terrifying things start happening to Faye and her newfound friends, Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it mean? The handsome Kel helps her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain he’s also trying to kill her—and maybe the rest of the world too.

Synopsis:

Death, love, destiny, and danger!

Lenzi knows she must be going crazy. She's hearing voices and having visions--specifically of gravestones, floods, and a gorgeous guy with steely gray eyes. And there's nothing anyone can do to help, not even her handsome musician boyfriend, Zak. Until she meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, and learns she can speak with lost souls. Now Lenzi must choose: destiny or normalcy. Alden or Zak. Life or death. And time is quickly running out.
