Picking up shortly after Legendborn's ultra-climactic twist ending, Bloodmarked takes Bree beyond UNC's campus, expanding her personal community and building out the larger political structure of the Round Table. As Bree wrestles with the mysteries of her family history, she must also combat the wills of the Legendborn's higher-ups, people who would like to see tradition upheld and power remain in the hands of those who already possess it. A rip-roaring middle book in what's shaping up to be one of the best YA trilogies of the decade. --Talia

The year is 2013, and Aria's plans for a summer in Martha's Vineyard are disrupted in favor of a quiet summer with her artist grandmother in California.

A Scatter of Light kindly and tenderly explores many of the experiences of a young person coming into their queer identity, detailing the beauty and pain that can exist while finding and coming home to yourself. This will give you both a heartfelt cry and needed catharsis. --Jordan
