After Obsession

After Obsession
By Carrie Jones and Steven Wedel
Release Date: Sept. 13th 2011
Publisher: Bloomsbury

Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.

Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

Winter's Shadow

Winters Shadow
By M.J. Hearle
Release Date: June 1st 2011
Publisher: Macmillan

Blake Duchamp...

He's all that Winter Adams can think of. Ever since their fateful meeting at Pilgrim's Lament. Ever since he looked at her with those emerald eyes. Ever since he saved her life.

But Blake isn't all that he seems. There is a strangeness about him, something dark and otherworldly. Something dangerous. In his attic is a secret he would kill to defend, but Winter seems to have a special ability to make him forget his duty. And he is her only protection against the gathering darkness.

The only problem is, to protect Winter, Blake must risk exposing her to an even greater danger. Himself.

  8. Great pick! I have Winter's Shadow here and I can't wait to read it. Interesting book since it's a girl's POV written by a male author, which I think is pretty cool. :)

    Check out my WoW picks here

  12. I really like the cover of Winter's Shadow. I haven't read Carrie Jones's Need series, but I've heard great things about her as a writer and the synopsis for After Obsession does look great. Thanks for sharing!
