For Maddie James and her team of terrorism experts, the biggest threats to stopping an attack are clumsy bureucracy and red tape. When she narrowly fails prevent a terrorist attack, the government tries to blame it on Iran without evidence, forcing Maddie to investigate.
Written with inside knowledge that only a CIA operative of 21 years could demonstrate, Intelligence is a stunning debut that was just awarded a starred review by Publishers Weekly:
"Many will find Hasler's female point-of-view a welcome change from the usual smash-and-bash male offering in the genre."

your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding
School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive

five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires
have -- to be human again. After
performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a
century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the
eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.
