Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1)
by Jordan Dane
Published by Harlequin Teen
Date to be published:December 18th 2012
Synopsis:Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.
Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.
A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.

Alchemystic (The Spellmason Chronicles #1)
by Anton Strout
Published by Ace
Date to be published: : September 25th 2012
Synopsis: An Old Friend of the Family...I've been re watching Gargoyles by disney , this summer. I fell in love with it again. I have never read about Gargoyles before and the re watching has me more pumped for this book.
Alexandra Belarus is a struggling artist living in New York City, even though her family is rich in real estate, including a towering Gothic Gramercy Park building built by her great-great-grandfather. But the truth of her bloodline is revealed when she is attacked on the street and saved by an inhumanly powerful winged figure. A figure who knows the Belarus name…
Lexi’s great-great-grandfather was a Spellmason—an artisan who could work magic on stone. But in his day, dark forces conspired against him and his, so he left a spell of protection on his family. Now that Lexi is in danger, the spell has awoken her ancestor’s most trusted and fearsome creation: a gargoyle named Stanis.
Lexi and Stanis are equally surprised to find themselves bound to each other. But as they learn to work together, they realize that only united can they save the city they both love…
Tribulation (Rapture Trilogy #2)
by Phillip W. Simpson
Published by Pear Jam books
Date to be published: 2012//not set yet
Synopsis:Directly following the Rapture is a seven year period known as the Tribulation. Those who have been left behind essentially endure ‘hell on earth’ during those seven years.
The world is racked by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and all other manner of natural disasters. Demons stalk the Earth by night, capturing the remaining humans and either converting them to worship of the Devil, or killing them. Most humans have fled the cities and now hide in caves deep in the mountains. It is a post-apocalyptic world in the truest sense of the word.
The world is now very hot, almost hell-like in its oppressive heat. Clouds are perpetually in the sky. It continually rains ash. There are fires everywhere. Plants and animals are dying. Food is scarce. The remnants of humanity are fighting for survival. There have been massive earthquakes which have damaged or destroyed many buildings. Every volcano in the world has erupted. The moon (when it can be seen) is blood red. There are no stars in the sky.
The story focuses on a 18 year old teenage boy, Sam (short for Samael). Sam was raised in the town of Jacob’s Ladder, Utah. It is – appropriately enough – near to a place of natural scenic beauty called Devil’s garden.
Sam is half demon. His mother, a devout Christian, was seduced by Satan and conceived his child. She manages to smuggle the boy to an old friend – Hikari – a Japanese sword master and demon expert. Hikari has a daughter, Aimi, whom Sam finds himself gradually falling in love with.
When the Rapture occurs, Hikari and Aimi are taken to heaven. Sam is left alone in the post-apocalyptic world without his morale anchors
I've been waiting a year for the cover. I know it is practically the same cover but look hell hounds. iiiiiii
There is Christianity mixed with eastern beliefs but it is not a religious book or preachy , well at least book 1 was not .Rapture, book1, was on of my top 5 book of 2011 and i can't wait for the followup of Sam's story.
