Screamcatcher: Dream Chasers by Christy Breedlove

Seventeen year-old Jory Pike knows a thing or two about Indian lore from her half-blood Chippewa ancestry. She can trap, hunt and fish with the best of them. She has a team of three other teens friends called The Badlands Paranormal Society. Instead of bagging groceries or playing on I-pods, they think they can excel at banishing evil spirits. They hope to cleanse houses and earn fat paychecks for their services.

Dream catchers aren't just the chic hoops tourists buy at novelty shops--they work. And sometimes they clog up with nightmares until they collapse under their own evil weight, imploding and sending the dreamer into an alternate world. Jory uses her worst nightmare to enter the dream catcher world. She’s pulled her teammates in deliberately. Everything goes right on schedule, but they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. Now Jory and her friends are there, trapped between the people who have confessed their sins to the Great Spirit and are seeking a way out, and the monsters and evil spirits, which are happy to keep them trapped in the web world forever.

They were once considered Seekers in the dream world. Now they’ve become vigilantes and call themselves Pathfinders. Is it spiritual enlightenment they after? Or have they now become fatally reckless?

The Dark Queen by Dana Gricken

For centuries, war has been brewing below the surface of New York. People known as the soulless—immortal humans with strange powers—have threatened life on the surface. The Dark Queen seeks revenge for a crime long forgotten and wants to rule the world.

Eighteen-year-old Riley Stark—a new recruit in the Sentinels, a military group that protects Earth from the Underworld—thinks she’s joining for the right reason. As a child, she narrowly escaped an assassination attempt on her life, and has wanted justice ever since.

After Riley goes snooping through her records, she finds the terrible truth—her ancestor was Mira Stark who killed the famous Dark King, and the soulless have wanted her family’s blood spilled. When Riley falls in love with a soulless boy she’s been taught to hate, she realizes that she can’t trust anyone—soulless or otherwise.

Human Again by E. L. Tenenbaum Azahr has always known what to expect from life. As the second son of Delphe, a great military future beckons, and he’s content in his role as future protector of his brother Adlard’s crown.

But when Adlard dies suddenly, Azahr is immediately thrust into the role of first son and future heir to the throne. Despite his best efforts, it quickly becomes apparent that nothing he does will ever make him good enough to replace Adlard. In the absence his beloved brother left behind, a dark void created by anger, frustration, and fear begins to open within Azahr. And in that void, a beast is born.

On the eve of his eighteenth birthday, Azahr crosses a faery when he refuses her hospitality from a relentless downpour. The faery condemns him with a curse that will haunt him and threaten his very humanity; a curse that empowers the beast and sets it free.

Exiled from his home, Azahr takes refuge in a forgotten corner of the kingdom, where he battles daily to hold the beast at bay. Then, one day, the door opens and Kiara steps inside, bringing with a heretofore unimagined hope of breaking the curse. If Azahr can just keep himself together long enough for Kiara to see in him the man he could, and may yet, be.

Human Again is the fourth in a five part companion series that rewrites the classic tales of happily ever after.

Not Just a Horse by Shannon Kennedy

Sixteen-year-old Cicely Ellis ‘knows’ her parents never wanted her. They abandoned her at the age of four, going off to new lives without a kid like her. They didn’t leave her homeless. They passed her on to aunts and uncles like a pet or a toy when they were done with it – and her. Cicely ‘knows’ she should be grateful to have a roof over her head; she certainly hears it often enough.

Nobody understands the passion she has for horses, or the dream to be a world-famous, international equestrian star. So, Cicely works at Salmon Pond Stable after school and on weekends, watering, mucking, cleaning tack, grooming, saddling – performing any horsey chore just to have the chance to ‘catch’ a ride on the horses. This makes her a ‘catch rider’ and causes some of the regular students to consider her their personal groom or servant or lackey. When the woman who owns Pallas Athena, the ‘horse of Cicely’s heart’ moves the Paint mare to Shamrock Stable, she goes too.

Now, Cicely has new things to learn. They don’t all have to do with horses or riding, but also the secret of the parents who left her behind years ago. Everything comes with a price, and no one rides for “free” in this world, but will the cost she pays be too high?

The Endurance by Nathan Smith

With a clever enough plan, one man (or a lad of sixteen years) could depose a pirate captain.

While Captain Rodriguez de Medina and his pirate crew are on the beach partying, the three young prisoners in the brig of his ship, the San Paulo, are plotting. Their plan: steal the ship, steal the infamous reputation of Rodriguez de Medina, steal his plan to capture the gold laden Man-of-War, the Endurance.

The three adolescents steal the San Paulo, but manning a ship with three sets of hands is one thing—attacking the Endurance is a whole new beast. But James, the leader of the pack, has a plan. He will rely on the feared reputation of Captain Rodriguez. Every ship that has faced Captain Rodriguez in the past eight months has surrendered without a fight. This is the crux of James’ plan. No one, including the Endurance, knows the San Paulo was commandeered by three ruffians. They’re going to impersonate Rodriguez and the Endurance will surrender her treasure. Or so James hopes.
