This week on Riveted, we have two new extended excerpts and two new full reads!
For our extended excerpts, get a preview of two of this week’s biggest YA releases: Scythe, the first book in a new series from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman, and Fate of Flames, the first in an epic new series from Sarah Raughley. In Scythe, in a nearly-idyllic distant future, two teens are forced to murder—maybe each other— as they train to join the ranks of the Scythes, a select group charged with taking lives in order to keep the population under control. In Fate of Flames, four girls with the power to control the elements must come together to save the world from a terrible evil.
For our free reads this week, we’re giving you a Neal Shusterman double-feature for the holiday weekend: Unwind and UnWholly, the first two books in Shusterman’s Unwind Dystology series. If you’ve missed out on the phenomenon that is Unwind, now is the perfect time to catch up!
We also have last week’s reads available for a few more days: a full read of Kimberly Derting’s “gripping dystopian fantasy” (Kirkus) The Pledge, plus we’ve for an extended excerpt of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy and a full read of Clockwork Angel, the first book in the Infernal Devices trilogy.
