In this striking novel-in-stories, a series of strange apocalypses have hit America. Entire neighborhoods drown in mud, glass rains from the sky, birds speak gibberish, and parents of young children disappear. Millions starve while others grow coats of mold. But a few are able to survive and find a light in the aftermath, illuminating what we've become. In ''The Disappeared, ''a father is arrested for missing free throws, leaving his son to search alone for his lost mother. A boy swells to fill his parents' ransacked attic in ''The Ruined Child.'' Rendered in a variety of narrative forms, from a psychedelic fable to a skewed insurance claim questionnaire, Blake Butler's full-length fiction debut paints a gorgeously grotesque version of America, bringing to mind both Kelly Link and William H. Gass, yet imbued with Butler's own vision of the apocalyptic and bizarre

In the future world of Scorch, America is run by a "corporacracy.” Three conglomerates have taken control not by force but by manipulating common beliefs and values through the media, and particularly by playing on Americans’ fears of Big Brother. Consumerism and privatization have run amok in this landscape of flashing screens and subtle brainwashing, a world where even city streets and public schools are run by big business. This is a darkly comic first novel of a dystopian future, with echoes of 1984 and Brave New World.

From bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis comes a paranormal romance perfect for fans of Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Scorch is the fourth and final book in the thrilling Midnight Fire Series. "All it did was remind Kira that time was running out. That she needed to choose. Or a lot more than a forest would burn. The whole world would crumble." Aldrich escaped...again. Tristan forgot...everything. And Luke, well, Luke was getting more than a little impatient. But those were the least of Kira's concerns, because something else happened in England--something she was trying desperately to forget. A wedge of evil had lodged itself in her heart, a little black hole had nestled into her flames, and it wasn't going away--not anytime soon...and maybe not ever.

"The writing is effortlessly mind blowing. I could not put this entire series down. Once you're hooked, you won't either because it'll eat you up not knowing what happened! And then you'll pick a team like I did and you'll fall in love with all the characters and you'll want all the bad guys to die horribly! Just trust me when I say it really is your loss to miss out on this series! It's a blaze of glory!" - Happy Tales and Tails Blog "Kaitlyn Davis writes some of the best action scenes I have come across in a young adult book; they are fast paced and so well delivered making this more than just a silly romance." - Reflections of a Bookworm "The only downside to this series, is that it ended. But the ending was beautiful." - My Seryniti "Kira isn't a human girl who is one dimensional and in love with a vampire.

'[A] CLIFFHANGER ENDING LEAVE[S] READERS WANTING MORE' -- Kirkus on Ice Wolves After the fateful battle between the ice wolves and scorch dragons, Anders and his twin sister, Rayna, have been reunited. But there's no time for celebrating. Anders and his wolf friend Lisabet are hiding away in the mountains of Drekhelm under the watchful eye of the dragon high council. They are perceived as threats, and only the leader of the dragons can keep them safe. Then the temperature in Drekhelm starts to drop throughout Vallen, threatening the lives of the Scorch Dragons. Suddenly, the dragons suspect that the two young wolves are spies for their old pack-that they helped them steal a weather-altering artifact called the Snowstone. The artifact puts everyone including Anders' twin sister, Rayna, in terrible danger. Desperate to broker peace, Anders enlists the help of a few new flame-breathing friends to stop the wolves' next plan of attack. Together, these former rivals must go on a perilous journey to find the scattered pieces of the Sun Scepter, the only artifact that can counteract the Snowstone. Because if either device goes unchecked, all hope for a truce will be lost. New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman delivers the thrilling second installment in this epic middle-grade fantasy series about a world where powerful magical shapeshifters are locked in a conflict that has spanned generations.
