Week of November 14

November continues it's quiet deliverance of novels, this week bringing 17 new and two reprints. Tales from the Shadowhunter is finally published in book format and there are several thrillers to look forward to as well.  Happy Reading!

Fate of Flames, book 1 in the Effigies series by Sarah Raughley
Title: Fate of Flames (Effigies Series #1), Author: Sarah Raughley Four girls with the power to control the elements and save the world from a terrible evil must come together in the first epic novel in a brand-new series.
When Phantoms—massive beasts made from nightmares and darkness—suddenly appeared and began terrorizing the world, four girls, the Effigies, each gained a unique power to control one of the classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Since then, four girls across the world have continually fought against the Phantoms, fulfilling their cosmic duty. And when one Effigy dies, another girl gains her power as a replacement.
But now, with technologies in place to protect the world’s major cities from Phantom attacks, the Effigies have stopped defending humanity and, instead, have become international celebrities, with their heroic feats ranked, televised, and talked about in online fandoms.
Until the day that New York City’s protection against the Phantoms fails, a man seems to be able to control them by sheer force of will, and Maia, a high school student, unexpectedly becomes the Fire Effigy.
Now Maia has been thrown into battle with three girls who want nothing to do with one another. But with the first human villain that the girls have ever faced, and an army of Phantoms preparing for attack, there isn’t much time for the Effigies to learn how to work together.
Can the girls take control of their destinies before the world is destroyed forever?
"This thrilling novel is full of superhero girls with ninja-warrior powers, so despite its flaws, it may still be popular with fans of Cassandra Clare's 'Mortal Instruments' books and Naoko Takeuchi's 'Sailor Moon' graphic novel series."—Leigh Collazo, Dulwich College, Suzhou, China

 The Girl in the Picture by Alexandra Monir

Nicole Morgan has been labeled many things—the geeky music girl, the shy sidekick of Miss Popularity, and the girl with the scar. Now only one name haunts her through the halls of Oyster Bay Title: The Girl in the Picture, Author: Alexandra MonirPrep. The girl in the picture.
After heartthrob Chace Porter is found dead in the woods near the school, the police search for the girl snuggled up next to him in a picture discovered among his personal effects. A girl no one knew was even close to him—and whose best friend, Lana Rivera, was his girlfriend.
Nicole is that girl, and now she’s the primary suspect in his murder. 
What happened that night? Were Nicole and Chace dating behind Lana’s back? Were he and Lana over? Could either of the girls have killed him? 
In alternating points of view—that of suspect Nicole Morgan and that of Lana Rivera—and weaving between present-day, flashbacks, and the characters' surreal subconscious, The Girl in the Picture is a unique tale of teen friendship, romance, and deadly secrets.
"A dark and addictive mystery that had me flying through the pages: best read late at night under the covers with the doors locked!"—Kara Thomas, author of The Darkest Corners
