Genre: YA


Ava would much rather be at the mall with her friends, back in Florida, than stuck in a run-down holiday house with her parents in the North Carolina wilderness. Allergic to pretty much everything, she's not exactly the outdoors type. So when the boy next door appears at her door yelling about zombies and making her leave the house, she's not entirely thrilled about heading out into the forest. Nor is she convinced about her chances of survival. If the zombies don't get her, Banjo Boy, also known as Cole, might just annoy her to death.

With no supplies or food, hiking the 40 miles to Glenview without getting eaten will be a challenge. Two teenagers, no food, no shelter and ravenous zombies. The perfect setting for a love story.

Storm is the sequel to Salt, in which we met Penelope, a witch with no magic, and Carter. Storm picks up soon after the events of Salt. Pen and Carter are working as Enforcers, protecting the Nons from demon attacks, when suddenly Statics start manifesting magic. With no knowledge of how to control it, Statics and Enforcers are soon getting hurt. It seems that the events at the end of Salt have led to this, and Penelope, now able to access magic from the Void, feels responsible. Things start unravelling and she turns to an unlikely ally to help reset the magical balance. Carter is convinced that Pen can't trust the demon, Lia, but Pen wants to undo the damage that she's done. Her chosen path could save or destroy them all.
