Blue Moon: The Immortals - Alyson Noel

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers increase, Damen’s begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen’s past - the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden - but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them - or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker by the day…

I loved Evermore so I’m really excited to get stuck into this.

City of Ghosts - Bali Rai

‘With us or against us!’ yelled Pritam. ‘You decide…Let me show you what it means to be a revolutionary!’ he whispered.
Before anyone else could move, Pritam began to rain down blow after blow. The guard’s head caved in…Only when there was nothing left but a mess of blood and bits of bone did Pritam let up.
‘One down,’ he spat, his face slick with gore.
He turned and ran for the door, wiping away the blood, eager to find his next victim. Jeevan stood and looked at the guard. Two contradictory voices fought for space inside his head. Follow your family; they are all you have, said the voice he most wanted to follow. But then the other voice caught him and held him back.
‘What have I become?’ he asked himself.

1919. Amritsar is a city on the brink of revolution.

Innocent citizens, trying to escape ghosts from the past, are swept up in the riots, violence and tension. They are unaware that, as the fight for Amritsar reaches a terrifying climax, their lives will be changed for ever…
