Ghost Grimm’s Upcoming Picks

17.02.15 | Comment?

Grimm’s away this week, but I’m still here to report the most exciting books we’ve ordered recently! If they sound interesting to you, go ahead and reserve them now, although they won’t arrive for a little while yet.

Syndetics book coverThe cage / Megan Shepherd
“When Cora wakes up in the middle of a desert, the last thing she can remember is driving to a ski resort with her brother. She comes across five other teenagers in this unfamiliar world, and they learn that they have been selected by highly intelligent aliens as study subjects; they are watched and controlled at all times. Each captive has been paired with another-with the charge to procreate within 21 days or face a fate worse than captivity. Cora can’t forget home, and her constant search for an escape puts her at odds with the rest of the group, who begin to see her as a threat to their survival.” (School Library Journal)

Syndetics book coverThe Glass Arrow / Kristen Simmons
In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.” (Goodreads)

Syndetics book coverDearest / Alethea Kontis
“Readers met the Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) in Enchanted and Hero. In this third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday’s palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he’s her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday’s unique magic somehow break the spell?” (Goodreads)
