From Paula Brackston, the New York Times bestselling author of The Witch's Daughter and The Winter Witch, comes a magical tale that is as dark as it is enchanting. Set in high society Edwardian England, The Midnight Witch is the story of a young witch who faces the choice between love and loyalty to her coven…
"The dead are seldom silent. All
that is required for them to be heard is that someone be willing to
listen. I have been listening to the dead all my life."
Lady Lilith Montgomery is the
daughter of the sixth Duke of Radnor. She is one of the most beautiful
young women in London and engaged to the city's most eligible bachelor.
She is also a witch.
When her father dies, her hapless brother Freddie takes on his title.
But it is Lilith, instructed in the art of necromancy, who inherits
their father's role as Head Witch of the Lazarus Coven. And it is Lilith
who must face the threat of the Sentinels, a powerful group of
sorcerers intent on reclaiming the Elixir from the coven's guardianship
for their own dark purposes. Lilith knows the Lazarus creed: secrecy and
silence. To abandon either would put both the coven and all she holds
dear in grave danger. She has spent her life honoring it, right down to
her engagement to her childhood friend and fellow witch, Viscount Louis
Until the day she meets Bram, a
talented artist who is neither a witch nor a member of her class. With
him, she must not be secret and silent. Despite her loyalty to the coven
and duty to her family, Lilith cannot keep her life as a witch hidden
from the man she loves.
To tell him will risk everything.

I was standing in the middle of nowhere with no real destination in
mind. There was only the dire need to disappear from Charleston. With my
head tilted up to the gray sky and my eyes closed, I let the light
droplets of rain fall onto my face. I’d reached a crossroads in my life
and was trying to find a reason to keep going. I had no idea a hurricane
was coming and fate would choose that moment for our paths to cross.
“Hey! You okay?” A voice called out to me in a deep southern drawl,
pulling me out of my fog. “Can I give you a ride somewhere?”
I opened my eyes and found a pair of intense blue eyes staring back at
me. His name was Fox. He had an irresistibly sexy grin, and judging by
his fast car, a need for speed. His timing couldn’t have been more
perfect. I was looking to start a little trouble, since it was what I
did best and he seemed like a good target. After sharing an incredible
night together, I quickly learned that Fox was more than he appeared and
full of delicious surprises. He gifted my body with unbelievable
pleasures and unlocked emotions that I’d wanted to keep hidden. When I
pushed him away, he left claiming a piece of my soul.
I never imagined that getting into his car that day would start a
transformation within me and forever change the course of my life. Fox
challenged every rule I’d ever made by tearing down the carefully
constructed barriers around my heart. I never intended to fall in love
with him but how could I resist a man who was so different than I’d
expected and more than I ever deserved? The grayness in my life caused
by loss and betrayal was waging a storm within me; Fox was the anchor I
needed to stop the inner turmoil and bring me back into the light.
Title: The Kill Order
Author: James Dashner
Series: The Maze Runner Prequel
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: August 14, 2012
Summary: Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth and mankind fell to disease.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next. Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there’s something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it’s mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.
Mark and Trina are convinced there’s a way to save those left living from descending into madness. And they’re determined to find it—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some, you’re worth more dead than alive.
Thoughts: I recently start reading The Maze Runner series. I really enjoyed the first book and loved the movie. Since The Kill Order is a prequel I thought I'd read it before moving on to the rest of the books. It was a good read, action packed. The Prequel tells the story of Mark, Trina and their group after the sun flares. But for me, it was a bit disappointing too. I was really hoping we'd learn more about the gladers before the events in The Maze Runner. I can't wait to dive into the the rest of the series.
