Its Almost Here: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Lady Midnight (B&N Exclusive Edition) (Dark Artifices Series #1)Its almost here y'all! Lady Midnight is set to release March 8th! I am beyond excited for this new release! Cassandra Clare will forever be one of my all time favorite YA fantasy writers! This is the first installment for her new spin off  The Dark Artifices.

"The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare's newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.
It's been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn't lead her in treacherous directions…Making things even more complicated, Julian's brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters' help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn't recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare's Dark Artifices series." (B&N.com)

She has also released the names of the following two books after Lady Midnight. The second one is Lord of Shadows and the third is The Queen of Air and Darkness.

Also, The Last Hours series is a spin off of the Infernal Devices series and the three book are set to release beginning in 2017. They are going to be named Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, Chain of Iron.

So much genius coming from one woman. Seriously.

Frozen By Melissa De La Cruz & Michael Johnston

Frozen (Heart of Dread Series #1)Melissa De La Cruz's career has been on fire from day one. She has written so many books! Personally I loved her vampire series that came out several years ago. Anyways, this new series is being team written with Michael Johnston and apparently its being compared to Game of Thrones.

"Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she's heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say it’s a paradise, where the sun still shines and the waters are turquoise. More importantly, it’s a place where Nat won’t be persecuted, even if her darkest secret comes to light.

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power within us all." (B&N.com)

Split Second 

Defy (Series) by Sara B. Larson

Defy (Defy Series #1)

Hey y'all! I've heard so much about this author and have been watching her career for a while through the lens of one of my author friends. I haven't read her books just yet but she's been immensely successful! She is on her third or fourth book now.

"Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king's army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince's guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can't prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.
The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she's sworn to protect?" (B&N.com)
