Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.

But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population, and those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery makeup . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club, and Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for—no matter what it costs her.

Cinderella meets The Hunger Games with a touch of television's The Bachelor in this fresh take on dystopian romance. America Singer is a spirited seventeen-year-old forced to compete for a chance at royalty, when all she wants is a life with her first true love.

It's time for the Selection, a lottery where girls from all castes are chosen to compete for the chance to be Prince Maxon's wife. Seventeen-year-old America Singer has no interest in entering the Selection. All she wants is a future with her secret boyfriend, Aspen.

But what America wants doesn't seem to matter. Her mother is convinced America is meant for a life among the higher castes. And Aspen--who is a caste below her--insists that she enter the lottery for a chance at a better life. When, much to America's shock, she is actually Selected, Aspen breaks up with her, and she heads to the castle brokenhearted.

Suddenly America is swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels, and decadent feasts. Prince Maxon takes a special interest in her from day one--much to the outrage of the other girls. To the rest of the country, life at the castle looks like a fairy tale--but beneath the glamorous surface, fierce competition rages between the Selected girls, and the rebel attacks on the castle are becoming increasingly violent. America defiantly insists she has no interest in the Prince or in ruling--but as her friendship with Maxon blooms, the barrier she's put around her heart slowly begins to crumble.

Then, just as America is considering the possibility of a different kind of life, Aspen shows up at the palace as a member of the royal guard...
