TOGETHER WE BURN by Isabel Ibañez

2 starred reviews!

“This beautifully written romantic fantasy features Spanish-speaking characters as well as a gripping, sexy enemies-to-lovers romance with fierce, strong-headed protagonists who dance around—and toward—each other. At its core lie magic, a mystery that pulls no punches, and thoughtful examinations of tradition and inheritance. A terrific stand-alone fantasy.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Spinning magic with mystery, this gorgeous tale will light up your shelf.”–Booklist, starred review

PRIMAL ANIMALS by Julia Lynn Rubin

“A disturbing psychological horror for readers who like to savor a gripping yet slow-burning, sinister story, and who don’t shy away from the gruesome.”–School Library Journal


“Jean accurately captures the difficulty for truly empathic individuals to focus on what is best for themselves while caring for others…Buy this fun book for any collection, especially where the previous book is popular.”–School Library Journal
