Shadow Falls After Dark

We love Texas-based teen author C.C. Hunter! She’s the gal responsible for the New York Times bestselling Shadow Falls series and its spin-off, Shadow Falls After Dark starring vampire Della Tsang.

In ETERNAL (the second book in the Shadow Falls After Dark series after REBORN) Vampire Della is trying to prove herself as a paranormal investigator while being torn between her feelings for a powerful vampire and a sexy shapeshifter. Can she? Readers will have to wait to find out until next July and the publication of UNSPOKEN—the third and FINAL book in the series.

“This is great for readers wanting to return to Shadow Falls….” — Kirkus Reviews

Teen Talk Tuesday (5/20/14 Edition)

Calling all YA-readers: Teen Talk Tuesday is here! Check out the newest teen books from St. Martin's Griffin this month, then join us and @earlyword later today for Early Word YA Galley Chat at 5pm EST, hashtag #ewyagc.

A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS by Catherine Linka
Set in an altered—yet terrifyingly familiar—present-day USA, this is a riveting debut about a teen girl who must decide whether to submit to a forced marriage...or run for freedom. “Linka weaves a believable, disturbing dystopian future and never shies from violence or tragedy. A deftly plotted portrait of the evolution of a teenage girl into a dystopian heroine.” — Kirkus Reviews

A reading group guide is available for this title (it's also compatible with Common Core standards!).

BLONDE OPS by Charlotte Bennardo & Natalie Zaman
The Devil Wears Prada meets Ally Carter in this debut young adult novel, set in Rome, which features a fashion magazine intern who uncovers a plot to kidnap the First Lady. “The only person Bec can trust is herself as the plot twists and turns in this hypercharged thriller of fashion, high-tech sleuthing, and power, with bella Roma as the backdrop. Close calls, mysterious phone conversations, surreptitious whispers in office corners, and a clandestine conversation in a dark warehouse make for highly improbable, but also highly entertaining, escapist fun.” — Booklist

REBORN by C.C. Hunter (Shadow Falls After Dark #1
New York Times bestselling author C. C. Hunter returns to Shadow Falls with this brand new spin-off series starring vampire Della Tsang. “This is great for readers wanting to return to Shadow Falls....” — Kirkus Reviews
