Epic Firsts

From HCCFrenzy

These first-time authors blew us away with their crazy awesome novels. They’re so good you’d think they’ve had a library’s worth of experience, but instead they have extremely epic first novels!

What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang

Fifteen-year-old Eva cannot speak, cannot move, and should not, according to the laws of her world, even exist. She is a recessive soul, the one fated to fade away. Except she didn’t. Now Eva can only watch as Addie, her sister soul, lives her life for both of them. Then two other hybrids approach Addie with a shocking proposal: they can help Eva move again. But is the risk too great? If the teens are caught, they will be sent to a remote facility from which no one ever returns.

Through to You by Emily Hainsworth

Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. But when Cam visits the site of  Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees some kind of apparition—and it isn’t Viv. The apparition’s name is Nina, and she’s not a ghost. She’s a girl from a parallel world,where Viv is still alive. All Cam can focus on is getting his girlfriend back, no matter what the cost. But in this other world, Viv and Cam have made very different choices. Things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv isn’t the girl he remembers. As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become and the part Nina played in his parallel story, he’s forced to choose: stay with Viv or let her go—before the window closes between them once and for all.

Defiance by C. J. Redwine

Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city’s brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls train to be proper ladies, Rachel learns to survive in the wilderness. When her father fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father’s apprentice, Logan—the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the one who handed her heart right back to her. And so Rachel decides to escape and find her father herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price…
