  • Once upon a time there was a girl who slept by the hearth in the ashes, waiting for her chance to catch fire and burn. Ever since Stella’s father died of an illness on a merchant trip, her life has been nothing but loneliness and misery, made even worse by her resentful stepmother, Natalia, who ignores her unless there are chores to be done. Stella dreams of escaping with her best friend Izzy—who has problems of her own—to explore the kingdom of Elaria. Her plans screech to a halt, however, when she overhears Natalia talking to a royal guard about a murder investigation: her father’s. Suddenly, everything Stella has ever known about her life breaks into pieces of carefully constructed lies. Determined to prove her stepmother guilty, Stella teams up with Izzy and a few new allies to find her missing godmother and discover the truth—no matter the cost. This isn’t the story you know. Fairy tales collide and nothing is as it seems in this explosive new series from Emilee King, full of sinister suspense and intriguing mystery. Pieces in the Cinders will have you gasping until the very end as Stella puts the pieces together of what truly happened to her father all those years ago. This edition will be signed by the author.

Now she’s a science experiment harboring a massive secret and running from those who want her power for their own vendettas. Stuck in a violent game of cat and mouse, Arie spends every moment evading Mr. Sark—the man representing the organization that would do anything to get their hands on what she’s hiding. Sark is driven, cruel, and desperate to prove himself, and every day he gets closer and closer to unraveling everything Arie is trying to protect. One mistake on Arie’s part drags a civilian named Erika into the game. Arie is horrified to find Erika involved in Sark’s bloody hunt, and grapples with how to save them all. But Arie can’t do this on her own. She needs some help if she’s going to survive the secret looming over her head. Walls crumble and lines between friend and enemy are blurred as Arie struggles to decide who to trust while trying to protect her secret and those she loves, knowing not everyone—including herself—can survive.

  • We talk about the fight like it’s our life. And in some ways, it is. It’s all we know. The fight against evil, the fight against monsters, the fight against ourselves. It can become everything because it can mean everything. Mean life or death, for better or worse. The war consumes us until it becomes who we are. But sometimes, no matter how long or hard we fight, no matter how much we need or deserve to win Sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we lose. We have to live with that. And sometimes that’s a fight all on its own. Everyone talks about the fight. The victory. Nobody talks about the loss. The after.

  • Life goes on. At least it’s supposed to. These days, Arie isn’t so sure. She finally managed to escape Dalton’s grasp and find her way back to her makeshift family, but eight months is a long time to be away from home—Arie returns to find that the world kept on turning while she was gone. Alexis has been busy since Arie’s secret got out and she realizes that she’ll have to work harder than ever to keep the key away from him. But Alexis isn’t the only problem. Dalton’s threat hangs over Arie, dictating her every move, which nobody else seems to understand. And when a sinister assassin begins tracking her down, Arie knows it’s only a matter of time before someone she loves gets hurt again. So the question remains: should she leave in an effort to keep her family safe or stay with those she loves to help them survive? As danger closes in from all sides, Arie realizes more and more that she’s not who she used to be. Survival comes at a cost, a cost that changes people, a cost that changed Arie more than she’s willing to admit. But there’s something else lurking in the corners of her mind that’s threatening to take control. Her fight against the clock—against her engrained powers as the key—is nearly up.

  • Not every story has a happy ending, but every story deserves to be told. Meet Leslie. She’s a junior in high school out to make a reputation for herself that doesn’t revolve around her last name. After all, her mom is the most successful district attorney in the state, her older brother Peter is a star football player set on the fast track for scholarships, and her dad owns the biggest car dealership in town with eyes only for his son’s college ball. Leslie’s learned the hard way that most people—besides her best friends Amanda and Chet—want to be her friend for two reasons: money or Peter. Leslie’s sick of the politics and superficiality that comes with the world she lives in, and she’s eager to leave it all behind. Just one more year and then she can get out of her suffocatingly huge home, go to a community college out of state, and work on her art, even though her mom would rather die than send her daughter anywhere other than Yale. Leslie feels trapped—trapped by her mom, trapped by her arrogant brother and his spiteful girlfriend, and trapped by society. She just wishes that something would change. But then she gets caught in the middle of an act of revenge gone wrong, throwing her menial life into chaos. Now Leslie is infected. And now, whether she wants it or not, everything will change. You know Arie. Now see a new side of the infected world told through the eyes of a girl whose story is altered by one tragic event, forever changing the one closest to her. Keep your head, Peter. You’re gonna be all right. This edition will be signed by the author.
