horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's
Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut.
a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods
and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then
A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a
road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't
know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real
Annaliese Rose Gordon.
Now Annaliese is haunted by strange
visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . .
a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared.
Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a
violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock
the twisted secrets of her past.
The Registry saved the
country from collapse. But stability has come at a price. In this
patriotic new America, girls are raised to be brides, sold at auction to
the highest bidder. Boys are raised to be soldiers, trained by the
state to fight to their death.
Nearly eighteen, beautiful Mia
Morrissey excitedly awaits the beginning of her auction year. But a
warning from her married older sister raises dangerous thoughts. Now,
instead of going up on the block, Mia is going to escape to Mexico—and
the promise of freedom.
All Mia wants is to control her own
destiny—a brave and daring choice that will transform her into an enemy
of the state, pursued by powerful government agents, ruthless bounty
hunters, and a cunning man determined to own her . . . a man who will
stop at nothing to get her back.
So what’s the game now? This, or the life I used to know?
Miki Jones is pulled from her life, pulled through time and space into
some kind of game—her carefully controlled life spirals into chaos. In
the game, she and a team of other teens are sent on missions to
eliminate the Drau, terrifying and beautiful alien creatures. There are
no practice runs, no training, and no way out. Miki has only the
guidance of secretive but maddeningly attractive team leader Jackson
Tate, who says the game isn’t really a game, that what Miki and her new
teammates do now determines their survival, and the survival of every
other person on this planet. She laughs. He doesn’t. And then the game
takes a deadly and terrifying turn.
