On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?
Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.
Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

Anise Sawyer plans to spend every minute of summer with her friends: surfing, chowing down on fish tacos drizzled with wasabi balsamic vinegar, and throwing bonfires that blaze until dawn. But when a serious car wreck leaves her aunt, a single mother of three, with two broken legs, it forces Anise to say goodbye for the first time to Santa Cruz, the waves, her friends, and even a kindling romance, and fly with her dad to Nebraska for the entire summer. Living in Nebraska isn’t easy. Anise spends her days caring for her three younger cousins in the childhood home of her runaway mom, a wild figure who’s been flickering in and out of her life since birth, appearing for weeks at a time and then disappearing again for months, or even years, without a word.
Complicating matters is Lincoln, a one-armed, charismatic skater who pushes Anise to trade her surfboard for a skateboard. As Anise draws closer to Lincoln and takes on the full burden and joy of her cousins, she loses touch with her friends back home – leading her to one terrifying question: will she turn out just like her mom and spend her life leaving behind the ones she loves.

Karina Delane has no idea how she’s managed to piss off fate. As if life as an impoverished orphan wasn’t bad enough, now she discovers she’s one of the changed—an evolved freak of nature. When a magical outburst uncovers her abilities, nearly killing her friend, the entire human region demands her exile. Karina is branded a monster and shipped to Vincam where the other freaks reside.
But Vincam has everything her old home doesn’t: Food, a thriving kingdom, and magic that’s not as unnatural as she was led to believe. It also has Sergeant Caleda, an irritating Elite Soldier who can manipulate the weather and is almost as stubborn as Karina. They’re constantly at each other’s throats—unsure if it’s a blade or their hearts that keep clashing.
When the king of Vincam discovers Karina can control air, marking her one of the rare Elementalists, he is eager to forge her into a weapon. Heeding Sergeant Caleda’s warning, she hides the truth; her control isn’t just over air but over all of the elements. Being gifted in the kingdom is an asset, but being too powerful marks one as a threat.
With the ability to bend the changed to his will, the King is almost unstoppable, and Karina knows it’s only a matter of time before he discovers her dangerous secret. When the people she loves begin to suffer, Karina searches for an unlikely ally in the rebels. If she can only keep her sharp tongue and growing powers in check, then she’ll stand a chance of ending his reign before he ends her life.

What if the ordinary things in life suddenly…disappeared?
Aila Quinn’s mother, Juliet, has always been a mystery: vibrant yet guarded, she keeps her secrets beyond Aila’s reach. When Juliet dies, Aila and her younger brother Miles are sent to live in Sterling, a rural town far from home–and the place where Juliet grew up.
Sterling is a place with mysteries of its own. A place where the experiences that weave life together–scents of flowers and food, reflections from mirrors and lakes, even the ability to dream–vanish every seven years.
No one knows what caused these “Disappearances,” or what will slip away next. But Sterling always suspected that Juliet Quinn was somehow responsible–and Aila must bear the brunt of their blame while she follows the chain of literary clues her mother left behind.
As the next Disappearance nears, Aila begins to unravel the dual mystery of why the Disappearances happen and who her mother truly was. One thing is clear: Sterling isn’t going to hold on to anyone’s secrets for long before it starts giving them up.
There are more, but I am going to stop here.
How about you? Let me know the book you are awaiting the nest year! I am always eager to enlarge my TBR list!
