    Taylor Davis and the Flame of Findul

    Angels. Monsters. An enemy who cannot die. Sometimes life gooses you when you’re not looking. You might be happily coasting through days in a little New Jersey suburb, dreaming about Jennifer Williams and making plans to see the new movie showing uptown when–bam!–everything changes in an instant. Your family moves overseas and suddenly you’re hacking at water demons with a four-foot blade… I was chosen from among all others to complete a task I did not want. I was told I’d have help. I was told I’d be in capable hands. Then I met my guardian angel. I am so doomed. Lauded by kids for its snarky humor, crazy predicaments, and bigger-than-life characters, Taylor Davis placed as a finalist in the kid-judged 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards. This trilogy is complete.

    Ella Wood

    Will Emily forego love for a chance at independence? Emily Preston wants only to become an artist. As the nation teeters on the brink of civil war, she must wage her own battle against the restrictive ideology of her father. Women belong at home on the plantation beneath the watchful eye of a husband or father–NOT at a university. But several schools in the North have opened their doors to women. How can she make her father see just how much it means to her to study under a master? Independence isn’t the only contentious point between them. A recent visit to her uncle’s home in Detroit has called Emily’s entire upbringing into question, but her father doesn’t appreciate her criticisms of his management of Ella Wood, the Preston family plantation. Then there’s the problem of Thaddeus Black, the handsome, charming young man who simply won’t take no for an answer. It could be that the real fight lies within her heart, which stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love. "Poetic" and "nuanced," Ella Wood is the story of a young woman standing at the edge of war and struggling with questions of morality, purpose, and love. Titles in the Ella Wood series: Ella Wood, Blood Moon, Ebb Tide Ella Wood novellas: Lizzie, Jack, Jovie The Ella Wood trilogy and the trilogy of novellas are complete. Note: Ella Wood contains a complete story arc, but the final pages initiate the action that will kick off book two, ending in a cliffhanger. Book two picks up exactly where Ella Wood leaves off.

    Recompense (Recompense, book 1)

    In a nation built upon lies, the truth is a dangerous secret. Born into Capernica’s lowest social tier and not permitted to leave Settlement 56, Jaclyn (Jack) Holloway refuses to pour out her years in the local fish cannery. She gambles on the one chance available to her to advance–the high school Exit Exam. In a country that still keenly remembers its own violent birth, the smartest and strongest are richly rewarded in exchange for military service. Jack is adamant that her best friend, Will Ransom, strives for induction with her, but Will is tied to the sea. Would he give it up for her? He’s never so much as kissed her. Meanwhile, a string of abductions breaks out across the nation, targeting girls eerily similar to Jack. Her Exam score places her in a position to aid Axis, the underground organization investigating the disappearances. Working in tandem with the handsome Captain Ethan Alston, Jack finds she has an unusual proclivity for the case. The evidence leads them back forty-seven years, to a series of high-profile cover-ups linked to the creation of the new nation, but nothing prepares them for the face that emerges from the past. Jack and Ethan must make a crucial decision. Blowing the whistle could have grave consequences for loved ones they’ve left behind, but holding their silence means history will likely repeat. And Capernica could never survive a second upheaval. A startling tale where past and present intertwine, fusing at the point of revolution. Have time to binge read? You’ve found your next dystopian indulgence. Recompense series:RecompenseBetrayalRetributionAbductionReprisal This series is complete.
