Poignant and chilling by turns, The Opposite of Innocent is award-winning author Sonya Sones’s most gripping novel in verse yet. It’s the story of a girl named Lily, who’s been crushing on a man named Luke, a friend of her parents, ever since she can remember.
Having Luke back is better than Lily could have ever dreamed. His lingering looks set Lily on fire. Is she just imagining them? But then, when they’re alone, he kisses her. Then he kisses her again. Lily’s friends think anyone his age who wants to be with a fourteen-year-old must be really messed up. Maybe even dangerous. But Luke would never do anything to hurt her…would he?
In this powerful tale of a terrifying leap into young adulthood, readers will accompany Lily on her harrowing journey from hopelessness to hope.
Clover Martinez has always been a survivor, which is the only reason she isn’t among the dead when aliens invade and destroy Earth as she knows it.
When Clover hears an inexplicable radio message, she’s shocked to learn there are other survivors—and that they’re all at the former Area 51. When she arrives, she’s greeted by a band of misfits who call themselves The Last Teenagers on Earth.
Only they aren’t the ragtag group of heroes Clover was expecting. The group seems more interested in hiding than fighting back, and Clover starts to wonder if she was better off alone. But then she finds a hidden spaceship, and she doesn’t know what to believe…or who to trust.
In the caliphates of Arawiya, the forest extends its palms and the sands bleed black. In Demenhur, the Huntress dons a man’s clothes, deceiving all, including herself. In Sultan’s Keep, the Prince of Death steeps his hands in blood. He no longer knows to dream. In Alderamin, the clock chimes for the immortal elves as an ancient evil stirs in the night. And from the shadows comes a woman, cloaked in silver and jeweled in crimson, with a letter that could change the fate of the kingdom—before the encroaching forest devours them all.
Set in a world reminiscent of Arabia, WE HUNT THE FLAME is told from the alternating viewpoints of the Huntress who must hunt down a lost artifact upon a villainous island, and the Prince of Death tasked with killing her.
