Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
Chances are, you’ve heard a few people screaming about this one already. Because it’s–get ready–KOREAN MYTHOLOGY mixed with TRAGIC ROMANCE and we’re LIVING FOR IT.
What’s it about? A girl who must kill to survive falls in love with a boy after she rescues him from a goblin, changing the course of her immortal life. AHHHH.
The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh
Ok let’s be real: we just got some ARCs in of this one and we’re honestly scared someone’s gonna stage a heist to kidnap them all. This is the vampire COMEBACK book and it’s going to change everything. YA, get READY.
What’s it about? The Beautiful is a sumptuous, sultry and romantic new series set in 19th century New Orleans where vampires hide in plain sight.
A River of Royal Blood by Amanda Joy
Amazing debut alert. Prepare your eyeballs for this gorgeous cover and even more stunning story in which two sisters must use magic to fight to the death for the crown.
What’s it about? A River of Royal Blood is an enthralling debut set in a lush North African inspired fantasy world that subtly but powerfully challenges our notions of power, history, and identity.
Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall
This is that very special brand of magic we usually refer to as magical realism. Except also horror. It’s like The Blair Witch Project meets magical realism in a documentary style. It’s intense. It will keep you up at night.
What’s it about? Imagine the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and a girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs, and that involves following the road. The road is rarely forgiving…and no one will be the same on the other side.
Fireborne by Rosaria Munda
You know that Game of Thrones-shaped hole that’s about to be left in your heart once Season 8 wraps up? We found it. We found the cure. The cure is Fireborne and it has all the dragons and magic you could ever hope for. It is the epitome of fantasy and we’re EXCITED.
What’s it about? Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone—even the lowborn—a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders. With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he’s come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.
