Topher Elliot is high school royalty.
The king of Lakeview prep.
You know the type. Disgustingly rich. Blond-haired. Eyes the color of a clear, blue sky. And muscles for days.
He also happens to be enemy #1, the bane of my existence.
Only, now my scholarship is in jeopardy and, like the peasant I am, I must tutor the king himself if I want to graduate.
Still, if I have to be around him, I might as well make it worth my while. So I send him a scathing text, telling him exactly what I think about him. But he mistakes me for someone else. That’s when I hatch a plan: get dirt on the king, and watch his reign crumble.
It’s about time someone made the king come tumbling down.

I’m Samara Yancy, “Sam” to my friends. For seventeen years I’ve lived on The Rock. A city-state in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by mountains and evergreen trees. The land is lush, the air clean, and dampening fields keep the locals safe from Magic and the Mages who wield it.
Not long ago, I was at the top of my class at the Guardian Academy. After one teeny tiny misstep got me booted from out of there, I hoped a well-paying job on the Mainland would set me up for success.
But I didn’t realize that my new adventure would cause the authorities to label me a potential terrorist. Now, I’m up to my neck in eccentric Mages, including one who views me as his nemesis.
My only choice is to clear my name while trying to keep my ever growing circle of family and friends safe. I’ll just avoid danger while eluding the maniacal Mage who wants me dead.
Piece of cake.

I might have gone from rags to riches, but this is no fairy tale.
I never thought I’d long for the days of pacing the living room of our tiny single-wide trailer, waiting for Mom to get home from her shift serving drinks at The Silver Fox. Or my boring night shifts at the convenience store. Even dodging my skeezy ex-boyfriend’s bumbling attempts to seduce me.
To say my life wasn’t great was an understatement. But at least it was mine.
Or it was until Mom came home and announced she was getting married. That was the day my life became unrecognizable.
As if a new home and a new family weren’t enough, I found myself enrolled at Everly Prep—an exclusive academy where the rich send their pampered and privileged teenagers to be educated.
And it was immediately obvious I didn’t belong.
Patronizing staff members, mean girls, and snobs galore greeted me as I roamed the hallowed halls, but it didn’t bother me. I invited them to do their worst.
Then I met them.
Seth, Theo, Cooper, and Mason—known as “The Rogues”—ran the school with iron fists and wicked tongues, making Everly Prep their own private kingdom. They were powerful, gorgeous, and brutal, a deadly combination that made them invincible.
And I was the perfect target…or so they thought. But I'm Chaz Miller, and I don't go down without a fight.
This collection includes all three books in the Rogues of Everly Prep Series: The First Time, The Second Move, and The Third Strike.

But, deciding which type of hero he wants to be, and who he really wants to fight for, will mean unavoidable death to some of those closest to him.

But mine is not the only secret in Winterhurst. A powerful sorcerer is waiting for the perfect moment to strike me down.

Salt & Stone is a continuation of the Elemental Origins Series by award winning and USA Today Bestselling Author, A.L.Knorr. The Siren's Curse Series is best enjoyed if readers have read Born of Water and/or The Elementals.
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR:
Q: What makes your writing special and different?
A: I write cuss-free, no on-page sex fantasy stories featuring strong female protagonists, and themes of love, friendship, the environment (because its something I care deeply about), while delivering a fast-paced adventure. I’ve been told my writing is very cinematic and that readers can watch it play out on the screen of their mind in full-colour as they read. My Elemental Origins Series is non-linear, meaning it doesn’t have to be read starting at book 1, you can pick up any of the first 5 books and dive in because they all take place simultaneously.
I believe its an authors job in today’s world to nurture empathy, help the reader live another life and feel what its like to be in someone else’s shoes. I try to write as believable a fantasy world as possible, with characters who value life and care for one another. My antagonists are often somewhat faceless for part of the story, providing mystery, and they are also not ‘just bad guys’, they’re people with their own world view one might understand, even if you don’t agree with it. Most of all, I just want to tell a great story and make readers feel something - I’m told I do a good job at that.
Q: Aside from Salt & Stone, what other books do you write, and what order should I read them in?
A: I also write the bestselling Elemental Origins Series that chronicles Targa and 4 other girls as they venture beyond the borders of their Canadian home and experience transformational supernatural summer adventures. I recommend reading Born of Water before reading Salt & Stone.
If you like Melissa Meyer, Tamora Pierce, Leia Stone, Jaymin Eve, Cassandra Clare, Lauren Kate, Stephenie Meyer, Becca Fitzpatrick, or Michelle Madow, you will LOVE AL Knorr’s storytelling!
A.L. Knorr is a 2018 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner for Born of Water.
Nothing like getting your ass kicked by a demon on the way to the most important job interview of your life.
But, that’s where I find myself right before trying to make a good impression on the supernatural investigation agency of my dreams. If I get the job, I can slay demons legally, unlike the criminal slaying I’ve been doing.
The only problem? I have to lie through my teeth about who I am or they’ll never hire me.
But the good news is I’m great in a fight, even if I fight dirty. The even better news is there are lots of openings at the agency. Unfortunately, they were created by a murderous cartel known as the Viceroys who seem to be releasing the demons and using their powers to take out most of the agency’s staff. This gets me the job and moves me and the other wet-behind-the-ears interns right in harm’s way.
Exactly where I like to be.
The other interns don’t think much of me, and the feeling’s mutual, especially in the case of Dax Murphy. He may look like a Hemsworth brother, but he’s arrogant as hell. Not my type. Really. I’ve got a lot to focus on with keeping my identity secret and not getting my head cut off by a Viceroy.
But maybe there’s more to Dax than eight-pack abs. And maybe secrets from the past don’t always stay buried.
If you like K.F. Breen, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Laurell K. Hamilton, Shannon Mayer, Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews, Dannika Dark, and Jennifer Estep, you’ll enjoy this wildly fun read.
