THE RAVEN BOYS ARC GIVEAWAY FROM SCHOLASTIC

The Raven Boys

by Maggie Stiefvater

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.

THREE-BOOK GIVEAWAY FROM ST. MARTIN'S GRIFFIN

Taken at Dusk

by C.C. Hunter

Step into Shadow Falls, a camp for teens with supernatural powers. Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.

Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean. But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.

Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together. Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.

C.C. Hunter Answers: What is your favorite thing about Taken at Dusk?

That’s hard to answer. I try to show my characters growth in each book. And I know Taken at Dusk had a lot of character growth. However, when I think about the book, my mind always goes to the scenes and what those scenes bring to the story. And there are two scenes in Taken at Dusk that really come to mind.

One was the scene when Perry turned into a dragon because he was jealous of Miranda and then Miranda accidentally turned Burnett into a Kangaroo. I loved the humor in that scene and yet, it was also a scene that showed additional depth of the characters; Perry and Miranda’s affection for each other, Della’s embarrassment when she was hurt, but her need to protect her friends just as much as Kylie, Lucas’s realization that Kylie was a protector, Burnett’s need to be able to keep Shadow Falls going without Holiday, and Kylie’s understanding that her courage came without her needing to think about it.

The second scene I felt added some emotional depth to the story was the when Red gave his life for Kylie. I wanted to show Mario’s complete evilness and at the same time, show Red’s ability to recognize right from wrong. It was also important to show Kylie’s compassion and her awareness that sometimes people make really bad mistakes because they are conditioned to do so, as was Red. It was a scene that brought tears to my eyes when I wrote it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to ask me this question.

Here’s to reading and getting lost in a great story.

Forgiven (Demon Trappers #3)

by Jana Oliver


Jana Oliver's third spellbinding Demon Trappers novel - following The Demon Trapper's Daughter and Soul Thief - brings all new thrills, as Riley Blackthorne takes on demons, love... and the future of the human race.
The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of a certain hunky Fallen angel, and a freshly-made deal with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s Demon Hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s in hiding, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than Riley, and rapidly getting out of control: something sinister is happening in Atlanta… or someone. The demons are working together for the first time ever and refusing to die, putting civilians in harm’s way. Riley thinks she might know who’s behind it all, but who’s going to believe her? Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming – and it may be closer than anyone thinks…

Jana Oliver Answers: What is your favorite thing about Forgiven?

My favorite things about FORGIVEN are the battle scenes. They reveal just how dangerous Riley's life has become and how nothing is the same. Just when she thinks she's about to beat Hell, the odds change. She has to be faster and smarter than the demons or her future is toast.

Soul Thief (Demon Trappers #2)

by Jana Oliver

Riley Blackthorne is beginning to learn that there are worse things than death by demon. And love is just one of them...

Seventeen-year-old Riley has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. As if that’s not enough, there's Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad. With all the hassles, Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether.

But as Atlanta’s demon count increases, the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, and pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever…

Jana Oliver Answers: What was your favorite thing about Soul Thief?

My fave thing about SOUL THIEF is that it's a game changer. Everything the readers think they know about Riley, Beck, Ori and Simon will be questioned by the end of the book. I love doing that to my characters (and my readers).

What's Left of Me (Hybrid Chronicles) ARC

by Kat Zhang

WINNER: Ruth Stiles
Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else--two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance.

Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn't...

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she's still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable-hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet...for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.

The Assault (Recon Team Angel)

by Brian Falkner

It's 2030, and humanity is losing the war against alien invaders. A Band of Brothers meets Ender's Game in this sci-fi military thriller.

A team of six has been chosen . . .

. . . to infiltrate the enemy's headquarters in the heart of the Australian Outback. The six teens have been modified to look like aliens. They have spent years mastering alien culture so that they can talk, act—even think—like their enemies. But from the start, the recon mission goes terribly wrong. It's only when they are close to discovering the shocking truth of the aliens' plans that the team is forced to ask:

Who among them is a traitor?

Brian Falkner, author of The Project, Brain Jack, and The Tomorrow Code, delivers a page-turning military thriller with his signature heart-pounding action and unique sci-fi twists.

Hand this to teens who love playing Call of Duty and Halo!

"Falkner supplies a tight story that features a strong plot and believable characters. . . . [He] effectively employs the tropes of both survival and war stories to great effect. While an entirely satisfying read on its own, readers can only hope there is a second installment in the works."—Kirkus Reviews
Brian Falkner Answers: What is your favorite thing about The Assault (Recon Team Angel)?
My favourite thing about The Assault is the beginning, when the team of teenage soldiers drop out of the sky into the Australian desert, landing on self-inflating airbags.
This was an idea I had about ten years ago, that I used in an unpublished story.
I remembered the idea when I started writing "The Assault" and changed it a little, so that one of the airbags fails.
To me this was the perfect way to open an action-packed novel, full of danger and excitement from the get-go.

The Hallowed Ones

by Laura Bickle

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers can get a taste of the real world. But the real world comes to her in this dystopian tale with a philosophical bent. Rumors of massive unrest on the “Outside” abound. Something murderous is out there. Amish elders make a rule: No one goes outside, and no outsiders come in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man, she can’t leave him to die. She smuggles him into her family’s barn—at what cost to her community? The suspense of this vividly told, truly horrific thriller will keep the pages turning.

Laura Bickle Answers: What is your favorite thing about The Hallowed Ones?
I loved writing from the perspective of Katie – this is my first time writing a book in first person. Katie was an interesting character to write because she's very strong in a quiet, enduring kind of way. She struggles to develop her own moral compass, independent of her parents and community. That requires a great deal of fortitude, just as much fortitude as dealing with the evil creatures in her world.

The Infects

by Sean Beaudoin

A feast for the brain, this gory and genuinely hilarious take on zombie culture simultaneously skewers, pays tribute to, and elevates the horror genre.
Seventeen-year-old Nero is stuck in the wilderness with a bunch of other juvenile delinquents on an "Inward Trek." As if that weren’t bad enough, his counselors have turned into flesh-eating maniacs overnight and are now chowing down on his fellow miscreants. As in any classic monster flick worth its salted popcorn, plentiful carnage sends survivors rabbiting into the woods while the mindless horde of "infects" shambles, moans, and drools behind. Of course, these kids have seen zombie movies. They generate "Zombie Rules" almost as quickly as cheeky remarks, but attitude alone can’t keep the biters back. Serving up a cast of irreverent, slightly twisted characters, an unexpected villain, and an ending you won’t see coming, here is a savvy tale that that’s a delight to read — whether you’re a rabid zombie fan or freshly bitten — and an incisive commentary on the evil that lurks within each of us.

Sean Beaudoin Answers: What is your favorite thing about The Infects?
The first thing that leaps to mind is the fact that it's done. I spent a lot of time with a group of sweaty delinquents, face-eating zombies, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, so I'm pleased to now be working on something entirely different. Which isn't to say that I don't love them all. I do. I'm just one of those people that needs a lot of variety in life. From books to food to music, I like to keep it unexpected. But really my favorite thing about The Infects is the ending. I conceived of the ending even before I started writing the book, because I wanted to do something that I thought no other zombie novel ever had before. To me, the ending is more than just a twist, it's the basis for an entire philosophy. A twisted philosophy, but one nonetheless. And of all the feedback I've gotten, not a single person has said "I saw that coming." Which rocks. I guess I just think it's important, especially when working in genre, to add something new to the lineage. If you're writing a book about space aliens it's perfectly fine to use (and abuse) all the usual tropes, but it seems essential that you add at least one new jewel to the teetering stack.

Yesterday

by C. K. Kelly Martin

THEN: The formation of the UNA, the high threat of eco-terrorism, the mammoth rates of unemployment and subsequent escape into a world of virtual reality are things any student can read about in their 21st century textbooks and part of the normal background noise to Freya Kallas's life. Until that world starts to crumble.

NOW: It's 1985. Freya Kallas has just moved across the world and into a new life. On the outside, she fits in at her new high school, but Freya feels nothing but removed. Her mother blames it on the grief over her father's death, but how does that explain the headaches and why do her memories feel so foggy? When Freya lays eyes on Garren Lowe, she can't get him out of her head. She's sure that she knows him, despite his insistence that they've never met. As Freya follows her instincts and pushes towards hidden truths, the two of them unveil a strange and dangerous world where their days may be numbered. Unsure who to trust, Freya and Garren go on the run from powerful forces determined to tear them apart and keep them from discovering the truth about their shared pasts (and futures), her visions, and the time and place they really came from. Yesterday will appeal to fans of James Dashner's The Maze Runner, Veronica Roth's Divergent, Amy Ryan's Glow, Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and Ally Condie's Matched.

C. K. Kelly Martin Answers: What is your favorite thing about Yesterday?
I was sixteen in 1985, like Yesterday’s main character Freya, so I loved being able to go back and experience that year again. It was an amazing time for music and I have a long, long list of musical acts from the period in my acknowledgments because they were a huge influence on me. Yesterday was a terrific excuse to listen to hours and hours of eighties music to help me get back into the mindset (my fav 80s radio station is the UK’s Absolute 80s). I also trawled through lists of TV shows and movies on back then and read about events from 1985. I wanted to get all the tiny details of the time right so, for example, I was careful not to have the characters listening to a song that came out in late 85 when the book is set in February. There’s a point during the book where Freya and Garren go see The Breakfast Club and it truly was out in North American theatres at that time.

Darkwater

by Catherine Fisher

What would you sell your soul for?

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Trevelyan would give anything to regain the power and wealth her family has lost, so she makes a bargain with Azrael, Lord of Darkwater Hall. He gives her one hundred years and the means to accomplish her objective--in exchange for her soul. Fast-forward a hundred years to Tom, a fifteen-year-old boy who dreams of attending Darkwater Hall School but doesn't believe he has the talent. Until he meets a professor named Azrael, who offers him a bargain. Will Sarah be able to stop Tom from making the same mistake she did a century ago?

This is smart fantasy mixed with elements of horror from master storyteller Catherine Fisher. She says, "Darkwater Hall is an image of the power and knowledge we all desire. But what will we pay for them, and are they worth the price?"

Catherine Fisher Answers: What is your favorite thing about Darkwater?
The thing I like best about Darkwater is a tricky one to answer but it is probably the idea of the Faustian pact, of making an arrangement to get what you want but then having to pay for it with your soul. That is at the heart of the story.

Given the chance, fifteen-year-old Peregrine "Perry" Eckert would dedicate every waking moment to Creatures & Caverns, an epic role-playing game rich with magical creatures, spell casting, and deadly weapons. The world of C&C is where he feels most comfortable in his own skin. But that isn't happening—not if his parents have anything to do with it. Concerned their son lacks social skills, they ship him off to summer camp to become a man. They want him to be outdoors playing with kids his own age and meeting girls—rather than indoors alone, with only his gaming alter ego for company. Perry knows he's in for the worst summer of his life.
Everything changes, however, when Perry gets to camp and stumbles into the World of the Other Normals. There he meets Mortin Enaw, one of the creators of C&C, and other mythical creatures from the game, including the alluring Ada Ember, whom Perry finds more beautiful than any human girl he's ever met. Perry's new otherworldly friends need his help to save their princess and prevent mass violence. As they embark on their quest, Perry realizes that his nerdy childhood has uniquely prepared him to be a great warrior in this world, and maybe even a hero. But to save the princess, Perry will have to learn how to make real connections in the human world as well.
Bestselling author Ned Vizzini delivers a compulsively readable and wildly original story about the winding and often hilarious path to manhood.
