Cammie Morgan has lost her father and her memory, but in the heart-pounding conclusion to the  best- selling Gallagher Girls series, she finds her greatest mission yet.

Black Friday by Robert Muchamore

Robert Muchamore - Black Friday Release date: 5th September 2013

The Aramov Clan has splintered into two rival factions and Ryan is joined by more CHERUB agents as his  three year mission enters its final phase. Ryan is about to board a plane, knowing that the next twenty-four  hours will change everything. His mission is to stop the biggest terrorist attack America’s ever seen. Ryan  works for CHERUB, a secret organisation with one key advantage: even a trained terrorist won’t suspect  that a teenager is spying on them. For official purposes, these children do not exist.

Antigoddess by Kendare Blake

Kendare Blake - Antigoddess Release date: 10th September 2013

The Goddess War begins in Antigoddess, the first installment of the new series by acclaimed author  of Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake.

 Old Gods never die…

 Or so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her skin, invading her lungs like  a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet  eternity in perpetual health.

Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world,  gathering allies and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to Cassandra—an  ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god.

These days, Cassandra doesn’t involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn’t even know  they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just beginning.

Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don’t just flicker out.

Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath.

The Goddess War is about to begin.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell - Fangirl Release date: 10th September 2013

 Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .

But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren,  ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through  their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up  like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on  her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston

Melissa de la Cruz - Frozen Release date: 17th September 2013

Welcome to New Vegas, a city once covered in bling, now blanketed in ice. Like much of the destroyed  planet, the place knows only one temperature—freezing. But some things never change. The diamond in  the ice desert is still a 24-hour hedonistic playground and nothing keeps the crowds away from the  casino floors, never mind the rumors about sinister sorcery in its shadows.

At the heart of this city is Natasha Kestal, a young blackjack dealer looking for a way out. Like many, she’s  heard of a mythical land simply called “the Blue.” They say it’s a paradise, where the sun still shines and  the waters are turquoise. More importantly, it’s a place where Nat won’t be persecuted, even if her  darkest secret comes to light.

But passage to the Blue is treacherous, if not impossible, and her only shot is to bet on a ragtag crew of  mercenaries led by a cocky runner named Ryan Wesson to take her there. Danger and deceit await on  every corner, even as Nat and Wes find themselves inexorably drawn to each other. But can true love  survive the lies? Fiery hearts collide in this fantastic tale of the evil men do and the awesome power  within us all.

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

Kiersten White - The Chaos of Stars Release date: 25th September 2013

 Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s  also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to  remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the  chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a  “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a  clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake  the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be  truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after  all.

 

All dates are British release dates, apart from Fangirl and Frozen – I think those are US dates. The synopses come from goodreads, and the covers all link back to their respective pages on goodreads.
