Hex Life: Wicked New Tales of Witchery will take the classic tropes of tales of witchcraft and infuse them with fresh, feminist perspective and present-day concerns–even if they’re set in the past.

After all, a woman’s gotta eat.

Bring out your dread.

Leigh Bardugo - Ninth House (Alex Stern #1)

ninth houseGalaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.

Molly Harper - Peace, Blood, and Understanding
(Half-Moon Hollow #7)

peace blood and understandingEver since Jane Jameson took over running the Vampire Council for Half-Moon Hollow, things have been a little unorthodox and that doesn’t sit well with the head office. Who would have thought vampires were so into bureaucracy and tradition?

Enter a vamp from corporate who’s determined to unseat Jane and get the council back on track—which means no more of this Kentucky neighborliness and mixing with humans, werewolves, witches, or anything else.

But Jane’s not interested in going back to the bad old days when the council was mired in corruption and tended to “accidentally” eat people now and again, but she might be in over her head this time. Good thing there’s a pretty new face in town who just might be the perfect distraction and help save Jane’s career.

Jennifer L. Armentrout - The Burning Shadow (Origins #2)

Gold stars, illustration*Young Adult.

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux―only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is―and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.

And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.

Lindsay J. Pryor - Rogue (Lowtown #2)

00Rowen’s nephew is missing somewhere in Lowtown – maybe even in Blackthorn. Simon is all she has left of her brother and she promised she’d always look out for his son. But when the overstretched and under-resourced authorities refuse to help her, she turns to the only other option she has: finding him for herself.

Acts of defiance against his pack leader lead to lycan Connor being banished from his pack in Blackthorn. Having taken haven in Lowtown, he has no sense of purpose and barely even has his self-respect – that is until he discovers he’s not quite the bastard he likes to convince himself he is when he finds a feisty redhead way out of her depth.

Rowen knows as much as everyone else does that rogue lycans are bad news – unpredictable, lethal and unreliable. But she also knows the six-foot-two-inch walking embodiment of reckless danger is exactly what she needs to help her navigate the lethal streets of Lowtown – maybe even Blackthorn – to get the answers she needs.

Connor knows Rowen’s mission is a lost cause, and starting to care is the last thing he needs. Finding just how much trouble her nephew is in, and now Rowen too, leaves Connor knowing he should walk away – even more so when he finds himself facing a past he’d rather forget. But it’s hard to turn his back in a girl who has started to trust him, to depend on him, even if she doesn’t want to admit it.
