Stuff about the New Books

Here's some details....

Captivate by Carrie Jones is the sequel to the 2008 book Need. Norse/Viking mythology mix with romance, evil pixies, and adventure in this series. Protaganist Zara is Bella Swan without the whiny angst. She's caught in a very interesting love triangle with Nick and pixie king Astley. The surprising humor makes this book stand out from other fantasy/supernatural romances.

Ally Carter, author of the Gallagher Girls books (I'd Tell You I Love You But I'd Have to Kill You, etc.) is back with High Society, the first book in a new series featuring con-artist/thief Kat who is trying to escape her crooked family by attending a preppy boarding school. When her dad is accused of stealing a pile of famous paintings, Kat must clear him by stealing them back from the real thief! The action spills across Europe as Kat and her Ocean's Eleven style teen crew plan heists, solve mysteries, and deal with romance. You will be begging for a sequel.

OK, I get this one first! I haven't read it yet but it sounds amazing. Incarceron is a huge, state of the art prison housing all of societies "undesirables". Amnesiac Finn is trapped inside but senses he doesn't belong there. Warden's daughter Claudia is about to be forced into an arranged marriage...both characters are trapped in a sense. A crystal key may mean freedom for them both. Incarceron is a strange world with metal trees and all-seeing cameras. Claudia's world is even stranger...a 17th century run by computers. Oh, I love Steam punk! I'll read it fast, promise.
