Grab your capes and get ready to soar with these four extraordinary stories! Featuring strong, confident, and capable women, this quartet of tales shows that saving the world (with an assist from your soul mate sidekick) takes more than just superpowers and special skills—it takes plenty of heart.

Electromancer: It’s up to Alexa Manchester and her new electricity-harnessing superpowers to stop arch villain Momo’s threat to destroy the world with a weapon of mass destruction. And thanks to the mysterious and handsome Blue Arrow, soon Alexa’s love life is charged up, too. But to defeat the seemingly invincible Momo, it might just take the naturally “super” power of love to save the day.

Underground: When first-year resident Dr. Andrew Alexander finds half-dead Robyn Monroe in his ER, he never dreams she’s living a double life as the Valkyrie, one of Chrystal Valley’s most notorious street fighters. She longs to escape this dark world, but that’s not possible until she pays off her late mother’s debt to a corrupt bookie. As a dangerous tournament approaches, Robyn needs Andrew’s help, but can she let her guard down enough to let him in?

Redeeming the Night: When the daughter of a Las Vegas politician disappears, private investigator and freshly turned werewolf Eric stumbles onto a frightening series of kidnapped girls. But he finds himself distracted from the case by the mysterious Ashley, on the run from her succubus clan.

Shield from the Heart: After being imprisoned and tortured by Vander Donahughe for months, Merrick Haskell wants revenge. But now Merrick’s battling a soul-deep connection with his unexpected rescuer, Sydney Spencer. Her super ability to negate power around her holds the key to stopping Vander from eliminating their friends one by one. Together, they must race against the clock to defeat him and forge a future together.

A masterful tale of ambition, jealousy, desire, and superpowers.

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

In Vicious, V. E. Schwab brings to life a gritty comic-book-style world in vivid prose: a world where gaining superpowers doesn't automatically lead to heroism, and a time when allegiances are called into question.

"A dynamic and original twist on what it means to be a hero and a villain. A killer from page one...highly recommended!" —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Marvel Universe vs The Avengers and Patient Zero

The Guild of Truth is back . . .

Sydney Spencer can’t get the image of the man she saw imprisoned in the basement of the Kratos building out of her head. Nor can she ignore the furious beating of her heart every time she thinks of him. Considering the fact that she already has a boyfriend, this is one complication she could do without. Yet three months without being able to shake her lustful thoughts has left her with one question: could it be possible that this man is her destined Mirror Mate? Determined to confront her mystery man and put an end to these traitorous feelings, Sydney tracks down where Kratos is hiding him along with more super-powered individuals, like herself. However, once free, Sydney realizes that the spark she felt before is nothing compared to the heat of being in her mystery man’s presence.

Merrick Haskell has tried everything to keep thoughts of the green-eyed blonde out of his mind. He has more important things to focus on. Like escaping Vander Donahughe and destroying him. Being imprisoned and tortured for months has left its mark, and Merrick wants revenge. But an unexpected rescue finds Merrick thrown into Sydney’s company where he must battle a soul deep connection and stay his hand. After all, Sydney is a taken woman.

Together Sydney and Merrick must race against the clock to find a missing text that could give Vander the very power he has been searching for, while at the same time resisting the intense attraction between them.
