Angra is alive and his Decay is spreading. Meira desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, she jumps at the chance.  But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control—and make the biggest sacrifice of all.

Hielo como fuego (Ice Like Fire, second book of the Snow Like Ashes trilogy)

Nora Escoms

It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and the evil Angra disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. The king of Cordell orders Meira and Theron on a mission to discover the chasm’s secrets, and she plans on using the trip to garner support for Winter. When she leaves, Mather takes Winter’s security into his own hands. As the web of power and deception is woven tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter but for the world.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch.

Partials Saga – Dan Wells

Nora Escoms

Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Playing on our curiosity of and fascination with the complete collapse of civilization, Partials is, at its heart, a story of survival, one that explores the individual narratives and complex relationships of those left behind, both humans and Partials alike—and of the way in which the concept of what is right and wrong in this world is greatly dependent on one's own point of view.
