Beyond the Blue Girl is one of the most horrific and disturbing books I have read, not for graphic scenes in fictional horror, but that you can imagine very sick…

My light magic is growing stronger. But my bloodline just got a lot darker...

I never dreamed that drinking blood would unlock my light magic. And I never dreamed that unlocking my light magic would lead to arousing my inner vampire.
I'm Katrina Quartz, a Crystal Witch who's also a Sanguine vampire. This means I'm part vampire by blood and as it turns out, my bloodline carries some pretty heavy secrets. Just as I have that bombshell dropped on me, there's another. The Bloodline Academy vamps want me to prove my loyalty. That, or they'll make those I care about, pay.

Oh, and if things weren't intense enough, I'm in a long-distance relationship and sparks are starting to fly - with someone else, who happens to be a Sanguine vampire.
If choosing a side between the Supernatural Light Alliance and the Bloodline vamps was hard before, things just got a whole lot tougher because nothing is as it appears. Only one thing's for sure - somebody's bound to get hurt.


The Dark Spark is the second instalment of the wonderful YA Bloodline Academy fantasy series from Ahava Trivedi. It continues the journey for Katerina Snow Quartz and her own self-discovery amidst…

“No list of thrillers is complete without Robyn Harding,” proclaims Real Simple. Now the USA TODAY bestselling author of The Party delivers a riveting tale about the toxic relationship between two couples after a night of sexual shenanigans, and the manipulative teenager with an explosive secret at the center of it all. Low Morrison is not your average teen. You could blame her hippie parents or her looming height or her dreary, isolated hometown on an island in the Pacific Northwest. But whatever the reason, Low just doesn’t fit in—and neither does Freya, an ethereal beauty and once-famous social media influencer who now owns the local pottery studio. After signing up for a class, Low quickly falls under Freya’s spell. And Freya, buoyed by Low’s adoration, is compelled to share her darkest secrets and deepest desires. Finally, both feel a sense of belonging...that is, until Jamie walks through the studio door. Desperate for a baby, she and her husband have moved to the island hoping that the healthy environment will result in a pregnancy. Freya and Jamie become fast friends, as do their husbands, leaving Low alone once again. Then one night, after a boozy dinner party, Freya suggests swapping partners. It should have been a harmless fling between consenting adults, one night of debauchery that they would put behind them, but instead, it upends their lives. And provides Low the perfect opportunity to unleash her growing resentment. Robyn Harding brings her acclaimed storytelling, lauded as “fast-paced, thrilling, gut-wrenching” by Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six, to this dark and suspenseful thriller for fans of Megan Miranda and Lisa Jewell.

The Swap is an emotionally immersive story that draws three very distinctive female characters who allow avaricious choices to create a toxic set of relationships. A story that is fascinating…
