Changers Book Two: Oryon finds our hero Ethan/Drew on the eve of her second metamorphosis--into Oryon, a skinny African American skater boy with more swagger than he knows what to do with. Enter a mess of trouble from the Changers Council, the closed-minded Abiders, the Radical Changers, and his best friend Audrey - at least she was his best friend when Oryon was Drew - and now, it's complicated. But that's life (and life, and life, and life) for Changers, an ancient race of humans who must live out each year of high school as a completely different person. Before next summer, Oryon will learn what it means to be truly loved, scared spitless, and at the centre of a burgeoning national culture war. Most of all, he will learn again how much the eyes of the world try to shape you into what they see - and how only when you resist do you clearly begin to see yourself.
City of Demons

Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corp.
A succubus finds herself facing the hellish prospect of jury duty in this novella in the New York Times–bestselling author’s Georgina Kincaid series. Succubi are made for playing the game of seduction, but the game of love is a totally different story. Which is why Georgina falling desperately, madly, irrevocably in love with Seth Mortensen presents such a problem. If they actually give in to their ardent desires, Seth will be destroyed. But before Georgina can figure out how to fulfill her desires without ending her boyfriend, she has to deal with another problem: a demonic tribunal called to deal with the murder of an immortal. As Georgina combs through a knotted case of bribery, corruption, and literal backstabbing, the dark magic zipping through the atmosphere begins to go to her head—and she suddenly suspects that Seth is up to no good. Now she’ll need to figure out how to keep the love of her immortal life while untangling Hell’s twisted legal system before both cases come back with devastating verdicts.
