Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Centuries after Edgar Allan Poe died of mysterious circumstances, Varen Nethers picks up an old notebook and begins to write. His words spin the diaphanous dreams of a lonely boy, isolated and achingly vulnerable to the devil’s whispers. Soon enmeshed into a net he can no longer untangle, Varen struggles to keep demon Lilith at bay and away from Isobel, a girl that has come too close to the truth… and too close to him.

Black City by Elizabeth Richards

Ash Fisher lives without a heart, literally. He simply doesn’t need one – the symbiotic bacteria in his blood exchange gases with the environment and perform circulation all on their own. They also charge his hair with electricity and fill the poison sacs behind his fangs – which are both perks of being a half-Darkling. In a post-apocalyptic world, Darklings and humans war for blood and money, kept separate by a nearly useless wall.

Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

Gaia has ninety minutes to take the newborn child from his mother. Fifteen minutes to make tea to calm the mother. Ten minutes to mark four freckles on the baby’s ankle – a tribute to her lost brothers. Five minutes to explain how her baby would be advanced to a better life inside the Enclave as part of every midwife’s monthly quota – three tributes sent inside the wall. Thirty minutes to deliver the baby, with half an hour left to spare.

The Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

However, his caretaker neglected to mention Ren is an Indian prince under a 300 year old curse that keeps him captive in the body of a tiger. From there commences an epic adventure through the hidden forests of India to seek the favor of the Hindu goddess Durga, who holds the secret to lifting Ren’s curse.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Art student Karou harbors a dark secret: her fantastical sketches of mismatched, bestial creatures – women with snake tails, parrots with fingers, humanoid gazelles with bat wings – are real. And these chimeras are in grave danger, locked in a war of eons with the seraphim, who have long wanted to exterminate them. When her only semblance of a family is forever locked away by the heavenly fire of a scorched handprint, Karou scours the world for a portal back to her home and finds it with some unlikely help from an angel.

Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

In the medieval land of Goredd, humans and dragons have been living peacefully together for forty years. There is no fighting or fire-breathing and the once-famous dragon-killing knights have been banished to the hills. But then a member of the royal family is murdered in a very dragon-like fashion and there are rumors of another assassination on the anniversary of the peace treaty.

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

Jennifer Strange is having a busy week. So far she has been threatened with jail, two people have tried to kill her, she has received 58 marriage proposals, she has been outlawed by the king and she has discovered that she is the Last Dragonslayer. The real problem is that she is not entirely sure the dragon should be slain and she only has a couple of days to figure it all out. Jasper Fforde has a dry sense of humor that can turn the most mundane situation on its ear. If you are a fan of Terry Prachett or Daniel Pinkwater you should give Fforde a try.
