Shy Celia Balaustine is befriended by a mysterious group of outliers called The Rosary at her new school, Suburban High. The Rosary exposes Celia to new experiences and ideas that help her break out of her shell. Soon though, Celia discovers something is not quite right at Suburban. Girls at the school begin having near fatal accidents on the eve of their sixteenth birthdays. Who is causing the accidents and why? Celia's own sixteenth birthday is fast approaching and she is inexorably drawn into an underground conflict between good and evil—the Kind and the Unkind—that is bubbling beneath Suburban High.

Plentiful references to music and art—along with the intriguing underworld mythology—make this supernatural series debut a page-turner.

Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear. Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime-fighter in the Twin Cities, so it’s hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she’s lured into the sweet night air by something human and not human—something with talons and teeth, and a wide, scarlet smile.

Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn’t fight crime at night. She fights Harrowers—livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape. And they want Audrey dead, just because of who she is: one of the Kin.

To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person’s memories become her own, and she sometimes even glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get close to Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers’ next move. But Leon, her mother’s bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won’t let Audrey out of his sight.

When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her herself, her family, and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything—and everyone—she loves.
Suburban Strange: THE COVER! Doesn't it look absolutely incredible? I'd buy this book just for the artwork alone, but it sounds equally amazing. Who or what is causing accidents to girls just shy of their 16th birthday? Why? And what kind of underworld mythology does the author bring to the story? I have a feeling it will be all kinds of creepy, twisted and delicious and I CANNOT WAIT.

Dark Star: SUPERHEROES! One word and I am hooked. So intrigued to learn more about the Harrowers and of course, Audrey's own badass powers of awesome that are beginning to manifest. This series has the potential to be pretty kickass, so excited!

  10. The Suburban Strange is tugging at me, begging me to add it to my list LOL Should I??

    Here is my WOW

  11. Looooove the cover for The Suburban Strange (what a name LOL) and it sounds so suspenseful. I feel like the "plentiful references to music and art" would be completely lost on me but whatever :P

    AND SUPERHEROES! WOO! I had never heard of Dark Star (as is the case with these WoWs of yours...) but it sounds all kinds of awesome.

    Thanks for introducing me to BOTH of these! <3 My weekly Book Adding On Goodreads Thanks To Brodie is now complete.


  12. I haven't heard of Dark Star before and I know I'll have to read it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!

  13. Haha, I love how you make me want to read books I have yet to hear about.

    Dark Star sounds awesome (afterall it does have superheros in it!) and Suburban Strange does have an amazing cover (it also sounds like it could be creepy and good).

    Great choices as usual Brodie!

  14. I absolutely love the cover for The Surburban Strange, it's just gorgeous! It's one you'll want in a hardback just to have it look lovely on your bookcase for you to take down and stroke! Gorgeousness!

    I love the sound of both books, they sound amazing! I want to read both! I think we seem to have pretty similar taste in books. Sucks I don't ive in Australia to stalk you until you sit with me over coffee or something to talk books and give me tons of recommendations to go check out. Lol.

  15. I haven't heard of Surburban Strange before and I love that cover and the synopsis. I'll take both books please!!! :)

  17. The cover of The Surburban Strange! I love it. That colour is gorgeous! Dark Star sounds awesome too - I mean, superheroish type mum who hunts evil creatures. What's not to like? Plus I am intrigued by this Leon fellow...:P. Great picks! :)

  18. They both sound like captivating choices.

  19. Omgggg they both sound amazing!!! Suburban Strange cover is totally awesome, but I hope the twist isn't all cliche. Dark Star reminds me a tiny bit of Lili St. Crow's books, but like, totally different. Awesome picks.
