The Awesome by Eva Darrows (2017 Review)

Margaret Cunningham isn’t your typical teenager. For one, she’s well acquainted with the monsters that lurk in the shadows – well, most of them, anyway. Unable to aid her mother in hunting vampires, Maggie goes about rectifying the rather frustrating issue. As it turns out, her virgin blood works against her, its purity potent enough to send the bloodsuckers into a deadly and uncontrolled frenzy, and that’s not good for anyone. Problem is, with little friends, and a small amount of social skills, the quest for “The Sex” may be the most difficult job yet.

Morium by S.J. Hermann

Whilst walking home one night, Alexandria and Nathan catch sight of something crashing to earth – some form of rock. Letting their curiosity get the better of them, they decide to seek out the object, but little do they know their lives will forever be changed. Gaining supernatural abilities, they find themselves having the power to rise up against the anguish that dominates their daily life.

Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith

Alex Sawyer finds himself in Furnace Penitentiary; a pit in the ground, its sole purpose to cage away the youngest of offenders. The thing is, Alex may be a thief, and he may have broken the law, but he certainly doesn’t belong in Hell. Facing a lifetime underground, of never seeing the sun again, Alex is determined to escape. Good thing he’s made friends, for he’ll need all the help he can get.
