Cruelty. Romance. Secrets. Winner of the Hot Key Books Young Writers Prize, Vicious Depths is the first novel in a gripping new fantasy series, perfect for fans of Throne of Glass and The Mortal Instruments.
Sixteen-year-old Alex Muir is dead. Dead, and furious.
The afterlife she’s been taught about doesn’t exist. There are only the hellish caverns of the Depths, deep underground, and the tightly controlled gates that protect the paradise of the Azure. The paranoid Azure leader is clinging to power, convinced he is about to be usurped by the overlord of the Depths. In his desperation to discover the truth, Alex is forced into the Depths as an Azure spy. If she fails to bring back evidence, she’ll be cast into the Outside – a place of nothingness where she’ll become but a shadow.
However, Alex soon discovers that the Depths aren’t quite the nightmare she anticipated. Among the memory-leeching monsters and vicious brawls, she manages to find friends in the chaos. Friends that introduce her to the mysterious Flynn Cooper – right-hand man to the overlord of the Depths.
A battle between the two leaders is looming, and Alex must decide whether to betray her friends, or face the threat of Azure exile. But when her friends reveal devastating secrets, she’s no longer sure which side is right… or if a right side exists at all.

But time had run out.
The Academy was coming to Wicker Hill for a Finding for the first time in generations and the magically gifted twins were practically guaranteed acceptance. With them gone, Wicker Hill would have no reason to tolerate a Changeling's presence among them and Kis knew she'd be exiled...or worse. A Changeling at worst, and unregistered blue eyes at best, she had little hope of following her charges into the exciting, adventure filled life promised by enlistment into the world domineering Academy.
Except in this world and all the rest, Fate truly is in charge of one's destiny, and She has weaved a very special strand in her Web for Kismet.

POSSESSING MAGIC DOESN'T GUARANTEE A HAPPILY EVER AFTER. OR DOES IT?
From the immensely successful world of BLOOD AND SNOW comes THE CINDY CHRONICLES.
This story will be told in six volumes.
"Witch Land" is book two.
Being able to do magic is one thing, but doing it in another land is... strange.
Summary for the whole series:
Possessing magic sucks.
What doesn’t suck? Fashion, Cindy's boyfriend Gabe, and her best friend, Snow White.
Cindy (Cinderella…shhh, don’t tell) was born a witch. It’s part of who she is. But there’s more to her than that. She loves deeply. And has a big heart. She’d do anything for those she cares about, including risk her own life to save theirs.
When her fairy godmother demands she leave Salem, Massachusetts and return to the land she was born to rule, she has two options. Tell her fairy godmother no, and seal a death sentence on complete strangers. Or, leave all she’s ever known behind, including the love of her life, for an unknown land she’s fated to save.
So, yeah, life sucks.
But Cindy is determined to change that.
