Publisher Comments:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike has created a heart-stopping romance built on a love triangle like youve never seen before and filled with epic stakes and a centuries-long conspiracy. Give it to fans of Beautiful Creatures and Nightshade.

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy shes never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that theres much about her past that she isnt being told. 

Tavia immediately searches for answers, desperate to determine why she feels so drawn to a boy she hardly knows. But when Tavia discovers that the aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents' death may have actually been responsible for the plane crash that killed them--and that she may have been the true intended victim--she flees for the safety of Camden, Maine, where the boy she sees in her visions instructs her to go.

Now, Tavia is on the run with no one to trust. No one, that is, except for her best friend and longtime crush, Benson.

Tavia feels torn between the boy who mysteriously comes to her at night and the boy who has been by her side every step of the way. But what Tavia doesn't know is that the world is literally falling apart and that to save it she will have to unite with the boy in her visions. Only problem? To do so would mean rejecting Benson's love. And that's the one thing Tavia Michaels swore she'd never do.

Review:

"Cremer's debut brings mystery and passion to a journey of self-determination. Calla was raised chaste and pure, destined to unite with high school heartbreaker Ren on their 18th birthday and become the alphas of a shape-shifting wolf pack. She has never questioned the authority the powerful Keepers hold over her kind until she encounters a human hiker and breaks the rules to save his life. Shay was almost convinced the wolf-girl who rescued him was a dream until he meets her at his new school. Pursuing his attraction to Calla, Shay also wants to know what the Keepers are protecting and why he seems to be linked to a prophecy. Drawn to both Ren and Shay, Calla is torn: fulfill the role she was born to and deny herself freedom of choice, or choose her own path and abandon everything and everyone she knows? Good and evil are simply portrayed as Calla sheds her naïveté and learns to see past her expectations. Cremer creates a sense of urgency as the pace accelerates, though the well-constructed plot carries readers along to a cliffhanger. Ages 14 — up. (Oct.)"

Synopsis:

A first-time novelist has written a compulsively readable and remarkable romantic adventure--a sensual debut filled with teen wolves, dangerous battles, and forbidden love.

When she starts to see strange visions of a boy shes never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that theres much about her past that she isnt being told. Tavia will soon to discover that shes an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.

Synopsis:

Love can be a real monster.
 
Sixteen-year-old Boys never left home.  When youre the son of Frankensteins monster and the Bride, its tough to go out in public, unless you want to draw the attention of a torch-wielding mob.  And since Boy and his family live in a secret enclave of monsters hidden under Times Square, its important they maintain a low profile.
 
Boys only interactions with the world are through the Internet, where hes a hacker extraordinaire who can hide his hulking body and stitched-together face behind a layer of code.  When conflict erupts at home, Boy runs away and embarks on a cross-country road trip with the granddaughters of Jekyll and Hyde, who introduce him to malls and diners, love and heartbreak. But no matter how far Boy runs, he cant escape his demons—both literal and figurative—until he faces his family once more.
 
This hilarious, romantic, and wildly imaginative tale redefines what it means to be a monster—and a man.
