BOOK DESCRIPTIONS:
FIREBORNE:

Game of Thrones meets Red Rising in a debut young adult fantasy that's full of rivalry, romance...and dragons. 

Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world. Where once dragons were ridden by the aristocracy alone, now anyone--including the lowborn--can have wealth, an education, and even test into the governing class of dragonriders. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet. But everything changes when survivors from the old regime resurface, bent on reclaiming the right to rule.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose between killing the only family he has left, or betraying everything hes come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves or step up to be the champion her city needs.

WAR GIRLS:
Two sisters are torn apart by war and must fight their way back to each other in a futuristic, Black Panther-inspired Nigeria.

The year is 2172. Climate change and nuclear disasters have rendered much of Earth unlivable. Only the lucky ones have escaped to space colonies in the sky.

In a war-torn Nigeria, battles are fought using flying, deadly mechs and soldiers are outfitted with bionic limbs and artificial organs meant to protect them from the harsh, radiation-heavy climate. Across the nation, as the years-long civil war wages on, survival becomes the only way of life. 

Two sisters, Onyii and Ify, dream of more. Their lives have been marked by violence and political unrest. Still, they dream of peace, of hope, of a future together. And they're willing to fight an entire war to get there.

STEEL TIDE:
The second book in the heart-stopping Seafire trilogy, which follows the captain of an all-female ship intent on taking down a vicious warlord's powerful fleet!

Caledonia may have lost her crew, but she's not done fighting yet. After nearly dying at the hand of a powerful foe, Caledonia is pulled from the sea and nursed back to health by a crew of former Bullets that call themselves Blades. The Blades escaped Aric Athair's clutches and now live a nomadic existence, ready to disappear at a moment's notice should trouble come their way. 

But Caledonia wants to do more than just hide. She wants to find the Mors Navis and her beloved sisters. She wants to continue fighting Aric's fleet and to take back the Bullet seas. She'll need to do everything in her power to convince the Blades that fighting is their only option, that there has to be a life better than the one under Aric Athair's reign, and that finding the women of the Mors Navis is the first step to revolution.
