Fearsome Dreamer by Laura Eve

Laura Eve - Fearsome Dreamer Release Date: 3rd October

There is a world where gods you’ve never heard of have wound themselves into hearts, and choice has  led its history down a different path.

This is a world where France made a small, downtrodden island called England part of its vast and bloated  empire.

There are people here who can cross a thousand miles with their minds. There are rarer people still who  can move between continents in the blink of an eye.

These people are dangerous.

And wanted. Desperately wanted.

Apprentice hedgewitch Vela Rue knows that she is destined for more. She knows being whisked off from a  dull country life to a city full of mystery and intrigue is meant to be. She knows she has something her government wants, a talent so rare and precious and new that they will do anything to train her in it.

But she doesn’t know that she is being lied to. She doesn’t know that the man teaching her about her talent is becoming obsessed by her, and considered by some to be the most dangerous man alive …

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Lauren deStefano - Perfect Ruin Release Date: 3rd October

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too  close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan’s older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan  vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if  she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her  betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind,  Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy  being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence.  Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who  she will lose.

Rick Riordan - The House of Hades Release Date: 8th October

At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the  Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find  the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and  Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and  prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and  Annabeth be able to escape?

They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In  about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this  adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

The Eye of Minds by James Dashner

James Dashner - The Eye of Minds Release Date: 10th October

Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual  world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology,  anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or  just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother  following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?

But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent  reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players  hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet  the gamer’s motives are a mystery.

The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team.
But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There  are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.

The  brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world  from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.

Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay  alive.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

One choice will define you.

 What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power  struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits  she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together,  free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly  rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris  must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible  choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Teardrop by Lauren Kate

Lauren Kate - Teardrop Release Date: 24th October

Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux’s mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her  mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to  know things he shouldn’t, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry  than anyone has before.

But Ander doesn’t know Eureka’s darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident,  Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks,  and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one  understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an  entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that  Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.  From Lauren Kate comes an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . .  a world where everything you love can be washed away.

Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone

Tamara Ireland Stone - Time After Time Release Date: 24th October

Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and  he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They  fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn’t. And they found a way to stay together, against all  odds.

It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits,  skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that  they’ll find a way to make things work…until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen  (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he  doesn’t want?
