Three fantastic new additions to our collection!
Amie Kaufman/ Jay Kristoff/ Marie Lu
The highly anticipated sequel to Illuminae (2015) follows the adventures of the captain's pampered daughter Hanna, and Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family as they confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault on board the isolated Jump Station. While the pair struggles with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, an elite BeiTech strike team invades the ship and forces Hanna and Nik to defend their home. Alien predators are picking off the residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival because the fate of everyone on the Hypatia and possibly the known universe is in their hands.

Cast’s (House of Night series) new epic is a post-apocalyptic fantasy set in a world where the destruction of civilization has led to giant mutated insects, deadly blights, and several tribes competing for resources. Eighteen-year-old Mari is the product of a forbidden union between the Earth Walkers and the Companions and she has gone to great lengths to hide her past. She's reluctant to embrace her role as a Moon Woman, or healer, but when a Companion attack scatters her tribe, she has to accept unlikely allies from both sides of her heritage. Mari forms a tumultuous alliance with Nik, the son of a leader from a rival clan who knows her skills could save his Tribe from the deadly blight. Now Mari must make herself ready to embrace her true destiny and obliterate the forces that threaten to destroy them all.
In his first book for teens, Hurwitz crafts a tense, disturbing tale of survival set in Creek’s Cause, a peaceful farming community. When a meteor strikes the small town, parasitic spores infect every resident over the age of 18, turning once-trusted adults into ferocious zombie-like monsters. While Chance Rain is 15, his brother Patrick will be turning 18 in a few days. And so begins a race against the clock as the brothers work to save Patrick before he becomes infected. As the transformed adults hunt down their own children, taking them away in cages, some manage to escape and seek refuge in the deserted high school. There the survivors form a fragile community and Chance and Patrick embark on a mission to uncover the truth about the parasite and become humanity's only hope for salvation!
