Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them.
Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules. Keep the truth a secret. It’s the only way to stay alive in a world of night—a world where humans are considered a delicacy and hunted for their blood.
When he’s chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity to hunt the last remaining humans, Gene’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble around him. He’s thrust into the path of a girl who makes him feel things he never thought possible—and into a ruthless pack of hunters whose suspicions about his true nature are growing. Now that Gene has finally found something worth fighting for, his need to survive is stronger than ever—but is it worth the cost of his humanity?

Jennifer L. Armentrout - Obsidian
Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, outhouses, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring. Until I spotted my hot neighbor with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marked me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and the mark he left on me has me lit up like Las Vegas strip to the bad guys. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is. And then things got really bad…

Ann Aguirre - Menedék

Egy enklávéban éltem, ahol a legidősebb közülünk huszonöt éves volt. Némelyek azt suttogták, megváltás lenne számára a halál, de igazából csak nem akarták a saját maguk jövendőjét látni. Pikk amióta csak az eszét tudja, vadásznő szeretett volna lenni. A vadászok feladata élelmet szerezni a közösségnek a föld alatti menedéket körülölelő, életveszélyes alagútrendszerből, amelyben örök sötétség honol, miközben igyekeznek elkerülni a Korcsokat, ezeket a zombiszerű, vérszomjas szörnyetegeket. Amikor az örök kívülálló, Fakó nevű vadászt osztják be mellé társul, aki titokzatos körülmények között került az enklávéba, a lányt tiltott érzelmek kerítik hatalmukba. Fakóval hamarosan rádöbbennek, hogy a Korcsok egyre szervezettebben lépnek fel ellenük, ám az idősek nem hallgatnak figyelmeztetésükre. Megszokott kis világuk szertefoszlik, így rákényszerülnek, hogy szembenézzenek az ismeretlennel. Köszöntünk az apokalipszisben!

Saját maguk számára. Amikor egy nagyhírű, különc, világról világra vándorló lélek érkezik a bolygóra, az utolsó lázadók egyikének testét kapja ittlétéhez.
