Last Sunrise in Eterna by AMPARO ORTIZ. To support her family, Seventeen-year-old goth Sevim Burgos scavenges and sells elf corpses. On one of her hunts, Sevim captures the injured elf prince, but he escapes, and leaves behind a ring with a message: “The Prince of Eterna is in danger. This ring will save him. Return it, and your mother lives.” With her mom missing, Sevim must enter the magical home of the elves, and find a prince whose fate might be more tied to hers than she ever suspected.
- Wolfwood by MARIANNA BAER. Indigo and her mother, once-famous artist Zoe Serra, have barely been scraping by since her mom's breakdown. When a gallery offers Zoe a revival show for her unfinished blockbuster series, Wolfwood, Zoe mysteriously refuses, so Indigo secretly takes up the brush herself. It turns out, painting submerges Indigo into Wolfwood itself — a dangerous jungle where an army of grotesque, monstrous flora are in a violent battle with a band of girls. As Indigo enters Wolfwood again and again, the line between fantasy and reality blurs. And by the time Indigo realizes the true nature of the monsters she's up against, it might be too late — and the monsters might just win.
Waking Fire by JEAN LOUISE. To the rest of the world, Naira's home village of Lagusa is a myth. While war rages to the north led by Sothpike and his army of undead monsters called Dambi, Naira’s people live in peace. Until Lagusa is attacked by a Mistress sent to do Sothpike’s bidding with a hoard of Dambi under her control. Desperate to protect her home, Naira convinces her twin brother Nez and handsome refugee Kal to join the newly formed resistance with her. Together, they’ll have to figure out what the Mistress wants — before there’s nothing left of Lagusa to save.
