Amazon Says: In Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Hellhole: Awakening, rebel General Adolphus knows the crackdown is coming. He's declared his independence from the corrupt Constellation, and now he needs to pull together the struggling Hellhole colony, the ever-expanding shadow-Xayan settlement, and his connections with the other Deep Zone worlds.

They expect resistance from the General's rebels, but who could possibly stand up to such a mighty fleet?

And when all hope seems lost, the awakened Xayans reveal information hidden even from their own followers―the existence of a bigger threat that makes even the Constellation fleet seem insignificant.Disaster has come for General Adolphus and Hellhole…and this time there is no escape. less...

Amazon Says: When Patrick Truman is found beaten, bound, and left for dead, sixteen-year-old loner Cat is determined to discover the truth of what happened to her former best friend. The local sheriff blames out-of-towners, but Cat is sure someone in their small, tightly knit Southern community is guilty of the crime. Patrick is gay, and for years he has been teased and bullied by people claiming to be his friends, people Cat calls "the redneck posse." She plans to start her hunt for the culprit with them. But there are two problems. Cat's brother is a member of the posse, and so is the boy who assaulted Cat years ago, forcing her into the self-imposed exile from which she must now emerge...for Patrick and for herself. Against a backdrop of poverty, clannishness, and intolerance, Myracle has crafted a searing coming-of-age story. less...
