Week of August 29

A huge week with 34 new titles and 11 reprints wraps up the last week of August.
The stakes are even higher in the second book of the Ember in the Ashes series- will you be able to keep up with the alliances and betrayals?  Can you figure out who the girl is that fell before the end of the Thousandth Floor?  And just who is the murderer in Just Kill Me? 

A Torch Against the Night, book 2 of the Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir
Title: A Torch Against the Night (Ember in the Ashes Series #2), Author: Sabaa TahirElias and Laia are running for their lives.
Following the events of the Fourth Trial, an army led by Masks hunts the two fugitives as they escape the city of Serra and journey across the vast lands of the Martial Empire.
Laia is determined to break into Kauf—the Empire’s most secure and dangerous prison—and save her brother, whose knowledge of Serric steel is the key to the Scholars' future. And Elias is determined to stay by Laia’s side...even if it means giving up his own chance at freedom.
But Elias and Laia will have to fight every step of the way if they’re going to outsmart their enemies: the bloodthirsty Emperor Marcus, the merciless Commandant, the sadistic Warden of Kauf, and, most heartbreaking of all, Helene—Elias’s former friend and the Empire’s newest Blood Shrike.
Helene’s mission is horrifying, unwanted, and clear: find the traitor Elias Veturius and the Scholar slave who helped him escape...and kill them both.
"This sequel has a darker tone and even higher stakes than its predecessor, setting the stage for a thrilling conclusion." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Megan Henske isn’t one to heed warnings…
When the last letters in her alphabet cereal are D, I, and E, she doesn’t crawl right back into bed.
When her online girlfriend won’t text a photo, she just sends more of herself.
And when she realizes that Cynthia, her boss at a Chicago ghost tour company, isn’t joking about making stops more haunted by euthanizing people there, she doesn’t quit her job—she may even help.
But soon she learns people in the murdermonger industry are being murdered, and doesn’t know who it is doing it. Could it be the head of the rival tour company? Or could it be someone near and dear to Megan?

"Ominous, unsettling, and dripping with snark, Just Kill Me is a delicious dark comedy that will leave readers jumping at shadows and waiting for a knife in the back. The ending still haunts me."  —Delilah S. Dawson
