Titles By Jessie Sanders
Emmett Tran: Computer Engineer. Musician. Widower. Too busy trying to keep his life afloat to realize how truly lost he is in this small town he’s never left.
Tobey and Emmett: They have their own lives, their own problems, their own kids; they certainly don’t need to take on each other’s. So why is Tobey having such a hard time finding a reason to leave? And why is Emmett not telling him to go?
But as the academy moves into a new semester, Rahab realizes that families and homes are never perfect. As the weather turns frigid, Rahab finds the promise of Bracken Carnegie’s affections cooling just as dramatically. He won’t talk to her, spend time with her, or even look at her. What will it take to thaw his heart? Does she even want to try anymore?
Confusing Rahab even more is Scotty Smith. Cute, kind, and totally normal, Scott is also clearly into her. He’s also right in the middle of a rash of weird thefts that have been occurring around Boston. Scout wants to investigate, but Rahab isn’t sure how it will affect her relationship with Scotty.
But those investigations quickly shove boy trouble on the backburner. Some mysterious person named Aidan is behind the fires and robberies spreading across the city, and Rahab’s ragtag band of super powered teens may be the only ones who can put an end to her sinister schemes.
Who is this new villain? What does she really want? How much destruction can she truly cause? It’s up to Rahab to dive into the icy waters and find out. But can she overcome the bone chilling shock in time to save her friends, her school, and her city?
Despite her anxiety, Rahab finds friends in Scout and Hawkins. Even though her new friends are social outcasts, Rahab feels a deeper connection with them than she’s ever felt before. But to know how deep, she’d have to risk revealing her own secrets. The idea of being that close to people fascinates her even as it terrifies her.
Another development just as confusing surfaces for Rahab. Everywhere she turns, boys are either flirting with her or teasing her. And she doesn’t care for either option.
Worst of the bullies is John Madison, a jock who refuses to leave Rahab and her friends in peace. The bullying increases and the tension becomes unbearable, forcing Rahab to wrestle with whether or not she has the strength to stand up to John. The only way Rahab can protect her friends is to reveal her uncanny secrets and face her greatest fear. What will she find when she looks into the flames?
It crashed into the fields of Quadrant Four, Saxony, and there it has remained, refusing to give up its secrets to the rest of Pocatello. The Nerjan government is determined to use the spaceship’s technology to give them an advantage in the brewing war against Pemberley, and Sir Asher Lowry is their last hope in cracking its code.
Asher and Andrea Lowry look the same, but they are as different as night and day: Asher is a prestigious scientist, a pioneer in harnessing lightning’s power. Andrea is a fiery street urchin with a dangerous secret. Together, the twins are sent to Saxony to research the spaceship for Nerja. Asher and Andrea know they are pawns in a war they don’t believe in, but these outcasts think they have no other choice but to follow orders.
As soon as they arrive in Saxony, Asher and Andrea realize that it isn’t just fields to be harvested. It’s a country with a completely different way of life, with many innocent—and interesting—native people. And the spaceship it harbors is a technology capable of terrible destruction. For the first time, Asher and Andrea have something worth fighting for.
Can Ash and Andy hold on to the life they’ve found despite the looming war? And how can they keep their own powers from being used against everything that they believe in and care about?

Forced to rely only on each other for survival, they soon discover the universe is a lot weirder than they ever expected.

Allowing herself to be sold to a wealthy family in Nerja feels to Natalie more like an adventure than a sentencing. If she can keep her magic hidden, serving the noblemen of Nerja will be much better than slogging through the swamps with Les Tristes.
But when a Wanderer discovers her secret and her new start is threatened, Natalie realizes how truly limited her aspirations have been. Can a slave girl overcome her destitute beginnings, reach her potential, and find a place to belong?
