Nearly Gone
by Elle Cosimano 
Release date: March 25th, 2014
Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.
Jess's thoughts: This. Sounds. Awesome. I've not read anything by this author, but I am definitely excited to read this one!

Raging Star (Dust Lands #3)
by Moira Young
Release Date: April 15th, 2013

Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton...until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price.

Donna's thoughts: Love, love, LOVE this cover! And I can't wait for this finale. I'm hoping it's going to just as good as the previous, if not even better and I can't wait to dive back into Moira's writing!

Love the cover of Dust Lands too! Such a shame that I didn't enjoy Blood Red Road that much. Anyhow, I hope you end up enjoying them! :)
