Is she brave enough to win it all? On a dark and rainy highway, 16-year-old Samantha drove the car that killed her dad. Convinced she was spared for a reason, Samantha dedicates her life to becoming what her dad always planned her to be, a racing champion. Samantha bluffs her way into a car testing session and convinces the owner of a Formula One team to take a huge chance on her.

Manny doesn't like to make waves. His uncle owns the racing team, but the crew tease the boy like one of their own. Even the team manager orders him around like an intern. But that's okay. The boy loves racing and dreams of one day designing his own racing cars.

But then Samantha came into his life. That spirited American girl who can make a 720 horsepower race car dance on a track. That girl who's not afraid to tell the team boss to go kick himself. That girl who fights for a place on the team and never quits.

She's amazing.

But Ferrari legend Emilio Ronaldo isn't impressed with Wolert Porsche's new "experiment" in racing. He's an eight-time world champion. The best of the best. A driver with no equal. This man will not let a teenage girl take away what's always been his.

To become world champion, Samantha must take on Spa, a race track nestled in the lush Belgian forest known as the Ardennes. A race track with speeds reaching over 200 miles per hour. A race track notorious for killing race car drivers.

Winning will make Samantha a legend.

Losing will prove to the world that girls don't belong in race cars.

Destruction.... A show of force... And a warning...

Three isolated towns across the world have been destroyed in a show of force by alien invaders. It is a clear warning of what will occur if their demands are not fulfilled. The fulfillment: Human children between the ages of twelve through fifteen years.

Kara Howard is an unremarkable fourteen-year-old girl who is selected by the aliens. She will be physically and socially orientated during the six months it will take to arrive at the planet Zaratan. The girl who liked the safety of being invisible, cannot help but stand out.

Matt Sparks, the boy next door, is also selected. Kara has had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. He vows to safeguard her. The closer they get to their destination, the more difficult it becomes to live up to his promise.

Kara is unsure if she has the strength to withstand the trials and physical changes she is forced to go through. In a new life, Kara will be torn. Will she be drawn in by an alien boy who has shown interest in her or by the powerful patriarch who sees her as the future of his race?

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
