supernatural

So get ready for some books about angels (no, not THAT angel), demons, possession, prophecy, and all that good stuff.  Also, coming soon to our collection…The Supernatural Book Series!

1313 Days of Midnight by Leo Hunt

A teen finds himself the unwitting beneficiary of eight enslaved and angry ghosts seeking bloody vengeance.  Armed with only his father’s indecipherable notes, a locked copy of The Book of Eight, and help from school outcast Elza Moss, Luke has just thirteen days to uncover the closely guarded secrets of black magic and send his unquiet spirits to their eternal rest—or join their ghostly ranks himself.  Mysterious father? Important notes?  Violent ghosts?  Sounds familiar…

The Merciless by Danielle Vegamerciless

“Mean Girls” meets “The Exorcist”.  They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.  Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls…unless she wants to be next.  Evil people?  Demonic possession? Questionable choices?  Where have I seen that before?

ravenThe Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.  His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.  But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, Ronan, and Noah.  Dangerous magic, brotherly relationship, and sexual tensions?  Check, check, check!

Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchettomens

The world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.  So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.  And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…Angels, demons, fallen angels (you get the idea…)

boneBonechiller by Graham McNamee

Danny is sick of running. Harvest Cove is the latest nowhere place he’s drifted through with his dad. In summer, people come to stay in cottages on the vast lake. In winter, Harvest Cove is a ghost town hidden away in Canada’s Big Empty. Danny’s been running forever, but Harvest Cove might be his last stop. The place has a way of making people disappear.  As the cold sets in, Danny and his new friends stumble on a centuries-old nightmare. They start seeing things. Impossible things. And in winter, there’s no escape from Harvest Cove.  Three words: centuries-old nightmare!!!
