Spotlight On: Banish, by Nicola Marsh

Release Date: 05/26/15
264 pages
Summary from Goodreads:
Alyssa has one week to destroy her enemy, save her spirit… and save her soul.After her ex-boyfriend commits suicide and her mum’s alcoholism sparks yet
another psychotic episode, seventeen-year-old Alyssa Wood flees her small
hometown of Broadwater and heads to New York City to stay with her bohemian aunt — a Wicca High Priestess.

Alyssa revels in the anonymity of a big city and her new life. Her grades
climb, she has a new best friend, and a new guy: the sexy geek Ronan — a
saxophone player who prefers jazz to pop.

But her newfound peace is soon shattered when she sees a dead body in one of Ronan’s music clips — and she’s the only one who can see it. Worse still,
Alyssa recognises the body that has been murdered a week forward!

Alyssa doesn’t believe in the supernatural…despite her family’s Wicca background. So how will she overcome evil when it’s closer than she thinks?


Excerpt:

I screwed up my nose and reluctantly flipped open the screen. “Ronan sends me music clips he makes.” My finger hovered over the play button. “Tonight he said he’d composed a song just for me. It’s amazing.”

“But?”

“At the end of the song, the camera panned into another room and that’s when I saw…”

My voice trembled and Angie’s lips thinned. “Show me.”

I hit play and braced.

The haunting melody embraced me, so familiar now I’d heard it repeated so many times over the last ten minutes. As the final notes faded, I stared at the screen, wanting to look away but unable to. Would Angie see it? Would she convince me I wasn’t going crazy?

I waited. Five long, excruciating seconds.

And nothing.

The screen went black.

I couldn’t look at Angie, my disappointment acute.

She jabbed a finger at the keyboard. “Play it again.”

Wanting to hug her, I hit the button. Another eight times.

All the while hoping the gruesome scene was on some weird cyclical repeat.

Nada.

No girl, no body, no blood.

No freaking idea what the hell was going on with me.

Cover Reveal: Library Jumpers, by Brenda Drake

Library Jumpers
Release Date: January 2016
Entangled Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That
is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly
disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia
unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and
transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical
knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the
gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world’s most beautiful libraries would be a
dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or
dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds.
Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard,
and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik’s world and
her own, before both are destroyed.

Shirley Anne Edwards

Faust suffers from horrible insomnia and paranoia. The summer before her senior
year of high school should be one of the best summers of her life. But she’s
tormented by guilt and an addiction that haunts her every waking moment. Evelynn
is a drug dealer who also craves the drug she sells. The money and the
popularity that come with it aren’t bad either. But when she’s caught dealing

the game is over.
He won’t snitch on her, unless she gives him whatever
he wants – her.
She’s
being blackmailed.

only care about partying and getting high. When Adam Tristen moves in across
the street, and he wants to get to know her better, it all seems too good to be
true.
She
must make a pact with the devil.
Evelynn now looks over her shoulder wherever she goes,
waiting for Eric to act on his threats. But Adam, the charming college sophomore,
sees something special inside Evelynn, and he wants to help her fix mistakes. In
order to do that she must confront a dark secret from her past that could
destroy her family…her life…and her entire world as she knows it.
She
must take a leap of faith.

Excerpt:
Sweat caked my body. I shook even as I held my cell
between my ear and shoulder as I waited for Adam.
He remained on the line the entire time he drove,
talking to me, keeping me sane. I didn’t tell him about Eric. It would be
better to tell him to his face and hope he didn’t freak out.
The sounds of tires rolling over crushed gravel met my
ears. A few moments later, his tall, beautiful dark-caramel body came into
view, and I crawled out of my cubby hole. Adam rushed over to me and pulled me
in his arms. He smelled so clean, as if he had just taken a shower. I didn’t
even want to know how I smelled.
“Are you okay?” he asked, cupping my face.
I shook my head and burst in tears. He held me tight
while I cried.
***
We sat in the back of his car near the old entrance
where a brick shed stored sports equipment. We were all alone, surrounded by
long grass, weeds, and broken concrete that hadn’t been paved in years since
the main parking lot was used in the front. The car windows were down, letting
a hot breeze in. Adam wanted to take me home, or to his house, but I told him
no. I wasn’t sure what I would face there. So, we suffered from the heat, or
rather I did. Adam didn’t seem to mind as he held me in his arms and whispered
in my ear.
I wiped my swollen eyes, staring down at my lap. My
wrists and arms were covered in red from my sunburn, including a rainbow of new
colors.
“Someone hurt you. Tell me who did this to you.” He
rubbed the pad of his finger over the inside of my wrist. His thumb grazed the
side of my hand, sending a tingle up my arm. I wanted to feel the same on my
whole body, to erase the aftermath of Eric’s abuse.
“Eric and I had a disagreement about something.”
“Evelynn,” Adam murmured. “What did he do to you?”
 He laid his
palm on mine. The breeze whipped through the car. I closed my eyes, wishing I
was lying on my bed in the cool darkness even with the annoying streetlamp
shining through my bedroom window.
“He didn’t rape me if you’re wondering. I stopped him
before he could. He found out about me and you, and he got very angry. He said
awful things about you, and I flipped out on him. He-he…threw me on his kitchen
table and almost—” I rubbed my face on his shoulder and inhaled his clean
scent.
“You were at his house?”
I nodded. “I visited Tink’s earlier in the day to meet
some friends. He saw me coming out from there, but I think he followed me. I
was so stupid to think we could talk. He was being nice for a change. I went
over to his house to have lunch, and he became mean.” I dropped my head in my
hands and groaned. “I messed up big time, and I don’t know what to do.”
Adam rubbed his cheek over mine. “You can trust me.
Tell me what’s going on.”
The moment of truth had arrived. I couldn’t lie
anymore. “My cousin Jenn and her boyfriend were arrested yesterday on
possession of drugs and selling them. They’re involved in a network of drug
trafficking in the area where they sell not just to high schools but to the
middle school and maybe younger. The reason I’ve been on and off with Eric is
because he’s blackmailing me. He caught me dealing a few months ago in the
parking lot of the high school. Unless I become his girlfriend, he’ll tell his
father about me.” I shook my head. “I-I’m so dead.”
Adam stared out the window, pulling at his bottom lip.
I scraped the side of my thumb nail where the skin was rough from all the
biting and picking I’d done.
“It’s okay if you want to throw me out of your car and
never speak to me again.”
He sighed, and I went to open my door. He drew me into
his embrace. His mouth brushed the side of my neck, and he cursed, holding me
until I turned my head and looked at him full in the face. Our noses almost
touched. I pressed my palm on his head, enjoying his short curls and how they
felt through my fingers as I tugged on them.
“No more lies between us. Okay?” He lifted his hand to
my head, mimicking my touch.
“I promise you, no more lies. I’m all tapped out with
my lies. I want to be more like you.”
“Like me?’ he asked, his breath a whisper on my mouth,
a tangy scent I wanted to inhale.
“Yes. You’re everything I’m not. Honest, good, and
sweet. You make me want to be a better person.”
“I think you’re sweet, but just misunderstood,” he
replied.
“Misunderstood, huh? I’d rather just be sweet.” I
moved closer, wrapping my leg around his waist until I almost sat on his lap.
He gasped and his mouth brushed mine. “Not quite good,
but we’re working on it.”
That made me smile. He then gave me one in return and
kissed me as I’d been dying for him to. He nipped my lips gently, prodding
slowly, erasing Eric’s harsh kiss until I ended up panting, wanting even more
of his kisses…his touch all over me.
“Hold me, please. I need you,” I whispered, sliding my
hands beneath his shirt to feel his stomach and the muscles there that jumped
under my circling fingers.
“I have you.” He sighed. “But we shouldn’t. You’ve
been—”
“Hush.” I kissed him with a deep intensity and
demanding hunger. “Don’t let me go. I feel clean when I’m with you.”
“I won’t let you go. Ever.” He pulled me against him,
just like I wanted.
Straddling his hips, I locked my thighs around his
until he moaned. His hands skated up my legs and higher until I gasped, dizzy
and punchy as a tide of emotion brought happy tears to my eyes.

Excerpt
CHAPTER 2. COUSINS
Jessica and Kyle, on the other hand, never mentioned anything negative to me. All I needed was support, and that’s what they provided. I cannot stress how much I appreciate them. They knew I didn’t need bashing, and that’s why I would never turn my back on Kyle or Jessica. When I needed someone the most, they were there.
One day, my family decided to call a meeting. My mother had gotten the scoop on what the meeting was about from my nana Christina, so I knew details before we headed down to Manhattan and I also knew I did not want anything to do with this meeting.
“What was the meeting about?” Jodi asked.
“Well, apparently my family believed Jessica was stealing from my nana’s brother; uncle David, who was sick at the time. They wanted everyone to stop speaking to her, but I just figured why should I? The day of the meeting came and went, and no, I did not cut Jessica off. Like I said, I wouldn’t. Some of my family was aware that I didn’t stop speaking to her, and was upset with my whole household.”
Walking into the meeting and sitting down, you could feel the tension in the room. I sat on the couch at my great-grandmother’s house while Sharon put Aaron in the back for a nap. Everyone came in, took a seat and waited for the meeting to begin. I noticed almost all of my cousins, aunts and uncles attended the meeting. The only people who were absent were: Uncle David, my late aunt Jackie, Kyle and Katie; they were away on a business trip together. Four of uncle David’s siblings were there including all of their kids. My mother’s brother Michael even came from Buffalo, New York, which was rare so I knew this, was serious.
“Hey Family, how’s everybody?” My aunt Lisa asked. Everyone replied that they were doing well and she began.
“Well, I wanted to have a meeting today about your Uncle David, and Jessica. We all know my brother is very ill, and it has been brought to my attention that Jessica is taking advantage of him.
She handed out pieces of paper, which appeared to be copies of his bank statements.
All that came to my mind was here we fucking go.
