  • Antipodes
    Antipodes
    Age range 14 to 18

    When Erin Cerise steps off her plane in Christchurch, New Zealand, she's determined to overcome her losses of swim team captainship, her boyfriend Ben, and her reputation. Her mother is certain studying abroad will regain Erin's chances of a good future. Once Erin meets her uninspiring host family and city, though, she's not so sure.


    Before Christchurch, Erin wasn't always intense and focused. When had her priorities gone upside down?

    Now, Erin balks at NZ's itchy school uniforms, its cold houses, and her hosts' utter inability to pronounce her name correctly. Christchurch does boast amazing rock climbing, gorgeous scenery, and at least one guy who could make her journey worthwhile-if she lets him.

    With months ahead of her, Erin slowly begins to draw on the years behind her, one step back into her memories at a time. As she rebuilds herself from the other side of the world, she finds that although her life has been turned upside down and she's far from home, every way she moves takes her closer to where she came from.

  • Archenemies (#2)
    Archenemies (#2)
    Time is running out.
    Together, they can save the world.
    But they are each other's worst nightmare.

    Nova's double life is about to get a lot more complicated:

    As Insomnia, she is a full-fledged member of the Renegades, a syndicate of powerful and beloved superheroes. She works with Adrian's patrol unit to protect the weak and maintain order in Gatlon City.

    As Nightmare, she is an Anarchist - a member of a group of villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them most.

    But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is the son of her sworn enemies.

    Nova, Adrian, and the rest of their crew are faced with escalating crime in Gatlon City, while covert weapons and conflicting missions have Nova and Adrian questioning not only their beliefs about justice, but also the feelings they have for one another.

    The line between good and evil has been blurred, but what's clear to them both is that too much power could mean the end of their city - and the world - as they know it.

    'A vividly dark and fully imagined universe...a strikingly grounded story of star-crossed would-be lovers, deception, and the recognition that most of humanity exists between the extremes of good and evil.' Publishers Weekly, starred review of Renegades.
