New Teen series
Here are some exciting new series, coming soon to our Young Adult collections.
|Pulse by Patrick Carman (Pulse Trilogy #1)
In 2051, some teens have a “pulse,” the power to move objects with their minds. With the help of her mysterious classmate Dylan Gilmore, Faith Daniels discovers that she has this telekinetic ability, and Dylan has the talent too.
Faith demonstrates her ability to use her pulse against a group of telekinesis masters so powerful they will flatten their enemies by uprooting street lights, moving boulders, and changing the course of a hurtling hammer so that it becomes a deadly weapon. But even with great talent, the mind—and the heart—can be difficult to control. If Faith wants to join forces with Dylan and save the world, she’ll have to harness the power of both.
|Reason to breathe by Rebecca Donovan (The breathing series #1)
An innocent love. A brutal betrayal. Unwavering hope. In a town where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She's more concerned with feigning perfection, pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises. Emma doesn't want anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. When Emma unexpectedly finds love, it challenges her to recognize her own worth - but at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she's desperate to hide.
|The trouble with fate by Leigh Evans (Mystwalker #1)
Hedi looks normal. But then she's put in a lot of effort to make that happen. Her fellow Starbucks baristas don't notice her pointed ears, her fae amulet. But normal is hard for a half-fae, half-werewolf on the run. Hedi's life changed twelve years ago when her parents were murdered by an unknown assassin, and she was separated from her twin for the first time. Fae enforcers took her twin back to the fae realm, and she's been in hiding with her loopy aunt Lou ever since. But then the Weres capture Lou, forcing Hedi to steal to free her last living relative, for if she gets hold of an amulet like her own they may trade. But it belongs to a rogue werewolf named Robson Trowbridge -- who betrayed Hedi on the night of her greatest need. Over the next 48 hours, Hedi will pit herself against the wolves of Creemore, discover just how great her fae powers might be and possibly break her own heart in the process.
|The rising by Kelley Arstrong (Darkness rising #3)
Maya Delaney is a skin-walker - a supernatural who can Shift into the shape of a cougar. But just as she learns this extraordinary truth about herself, she also discovers that Shifting comes with a terrible cost. With every transformation, a skin-walker loses touch with their human nature - and in time can lose their identity and their very sense of being human. Maya and her friends have been running from the people who experimented on them and created them as supernaturals. But now they realise they must confront their enemies if they are ever to have a future. Maya will need to use her powers in order to succeed - but the price of freedom could be too high a cost to pay...
