Description:

 

It’s Bring it On meets The Craft in this spellbinding witchy series debut.

 

If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

 

Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.

 

Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.

 

Praise for Hexed:

 

“A perfect mix of action, romance, and humor – HEXED kept me riveted until the very last page!”—Amy Tintera, author of REBOOT

 

Krys’s dry sense of humor had me laughing and her spot-on world-building had me enthralled. If they weren’t part of a magical world of witchcraft and sorcery, I would swear I knew these characters in high school. I loved HEXED.“—Amy Plum, author of the DIE FOR ME series.

“Krys’s debut novel offers a fast-paced plot with plenty of shocking twists and turns and a cliff-hanger ending that will appeal to fans of paranormal romances.”—School Library Journal

 

Hexed was seriously fun, deliciously enjoyable, and has tons of laugh-out-loud moments that are bound to get you confused looks from strangers if you’re reading it in public. . . . You need to add [it] to your summer reading list, and pronto!”—The Huffington Post

 

Krys finds the funny and fantastical sweet spot between magic and high-school drama in this mash-up of Mean Girls and The Craft“—Booklist

 

“Hexed is one hell of a great read. With a story so strong and unique, it won’t disappoint you.”—The Guardian

 

“Plenty of witty banter between Bishop and Indigo will please readers.”—Kirkus Reviews

Description:

 

Indie has spent the last few weeks frantically searching for Paige. She’s tried every spell imaginable, but witchcraft has gotten her nowhere, and she’s going crazy with guilt. Despite what her warlock boyfriend, Bishop, tells her, Indie knows it’s her fault her best friend was kidnapped by the Priory. And with the Priory destroyed, finding Paige feels more hopeless than ever-especially when Indie discovers that Paige isn’t even on Earth. She’s trapped in Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles filled with evil paranormals. No one who has gone there has ever come out.

 

Fueled by terror and loyalty, Indie is desperate to find away into the underworld prison. She’ll worry about getting out later. But facing the dark world’s most dangerous witches and warlocks on her own means keeping her plan hush-hush-and forging alliances with some sketchy people, including a seriously sexy sorcerer.

 

Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn’t the only one with secrets….

 

Advance praise for CHARMED:

Snappy dialogue, a satisfyingly epic battle, and unexpected heroes make for a conclusion that will satisfy readers“–Kirkus Reviews

 

Teens who enjoy paranormal witchcraft with a dose of Mean Girls mixed in will enjoy both Hexed and Charmed.”–Voya

 

Once again, Krys stirs up a mesmerizing brew brimming with witches, warlocks, and an alternate-dimension demonic Los Angeles. Consider me spellbound!“–Amy Plum, international bestselling author of the DIE FOR ME series.

 

I loved CHARMED! Indigo is a funny, complex, and utterly lovable heroine. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!“–Amy Tintera, author of REBOOT and REBEL.

Krys_9780553508024_jkt_all_r1.inddDescription:

 

You are cordially invited to participate in a game of thrills and dares. Tell no one, and come alone. If you dare.

 

Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college. And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.

 

When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she might win some real money.

 

But the Society isn’t all it seems . . . and soon Hope finds that playing the game isn’t a choice—it’s a requirement.

 

Praise for DEAD GIRLS SOCIETY:

 

“Dark, twisty, and thrilling.” —Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author of Dorothy Must Die

 

“A delicious and fast-paced read! This one kept me up way past my bedtime!” —Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin’

 

“Absorbing . . . This swiftly paced blend of mystery and psychological suspense uses vividly sketched characters with complex backstories to argue against stereotyping and in favor of tolerance and empathy. Creepy set pieces add tension and texture, and the burgeoning relationship between Hope and her best friend Ethan provides a dose of romance.” –Publishers Weekly

 

“Reminiscent of Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars (2007)”–Kirkus Reviews
