NetGalley:
Keep your head down. Don’t look anyone in the eye. Never even think about technology if one of those ghostly, grey cars is sliding silently down the road. They'll see the thoughts inside you, if you let them. 

Sam's a technopath, able to control electronic signals and manipulate technology with his mind. And so, ever since childhood, his life has been a carefully constructed web of lies, meant to keep his Talent hidden, his powers a secret. But the Institute wants those unusual powers, and will do anything to get a hold of him and turn him into one of their mindless slaves. 

Sam slips up once. Just once, but that's enough. Now the Institute is after him in full force. Soldiers, telekinetics and mind readers, all gunning just for him. 

Newly qualified rebel soldier, Serena, doesn't even know she's chasing a person, all she knows is that she has to find whatever the Institute is after before they do. But, tracking an unknown entity through an unfamiliar city, with inaccurate intelligence, unexpected storms, and the Watch on the prowl, will she even survive? Will she get to Sam before the Institute does? His special skills could provide the resistance with an incredible advantage, but not if they can't get out of the city, and over the huge wall that stands between them and freedom. 

I AM THE STORM is the action-packed rewrite of SLAM, with 60% new material and a brand new ending. Don't miss Book One in what is now a four-part series, due in 2018.


Gifted:

An orphan, I lived my life in the shadows, stealing magical objects people wouldn’t miss. Born without magical powers, I lived my life as the lowest of the low barely able to scrape by.

A man came to me one night from the shadows and told me I could do more. I possessed the Mark of Merlin, a power granted to only the most powerful mages. I told him he was wrong, but he proved me wrong, and my once dormant powers began to flow.

I joined his resistance, meeting mages, shifters, werewolves, vampires, and more creatures than I could ever count. They wanted me to do something alongside them: to help infiltrate the magical police force, M.A.G.I.C., and become a cop. I did it, not for them, but to stop a powerful rune mage from taking over both realms.

He wants my powers, my mark, for evil. He also has the rest of the force in his pocket, looking for any mages who carry the type of magic I have. Now solving cases with my jaguar shifter partner and werewolf boyfriend, I must find a way to stop the man who seeks to take everything from me before he finds out I’m right under his nose. 

A young woman is found brutally murdered, and the main suspect is the victim’s fiancĂ©, a hideously scarred Iraq War vet known as the Burned Man. But railroad police Special Agent Sydney Rose Parnell, brought in by the Denver Major Crimes unit to help investigate, can't shake the feeling that larger forces are behind this apparent crime of passion.
In the depths of an icy winter, Parnell and her K9 partner, Clyde―both haunted by their time in Iraq―descend into the underground world of a savage gang of rail riders. There, they uncover a wide-reaching conspiracy and a series of shocking crimes. Crimes that threaten everything Parnell holds dear.
As the search for the truth puts her directly in the path of the killer, Parnell must struggle with a deadly question: Can she fight monsters without becoming one herself?





After years as a patrol cop, detective Jocelyn Rush is almost immune to the depravity that stalks the meaner streets of Philadelphia…almost. After saving her three-year-old daughter from a carjacking, she ends up in the emergency room—and discovers that Anita, a former prostitute, and acquaintance from her old days on the beat, has been hideously mutilated in a brutal assault.
With the help of her partner and Philadelphia’s Special Victims Unit, Jocelyn discovers that Anita isn’t the first victim of these attacks and it looks like she won’t be the last. When the violence hits closer to home, Jocelyn knows she must do whatever it takes to stop the sadistic attacker—even if it means confronting a terrible secret from her painful past.
Award-winning author Lisa Regan’s Hold Still is a captivating thriller that crackles with intensity.

‘Hello? Police? My husband and our children… they’re gone.’


When Mel arrives at the holiday cottage in the Lake District, she expects to find the heating on and her husband Luke and the two children waiting for her. Maybe a bottle of wine open…

Instead, there is just a note on the side, saying they’ve gone out for a walk.

But they aren’t back several hours later, and Mel knows something is wrong. Really wrong. When a search doesn’t find them, she has to confess to the police that her marriage isn’t all that it seems.

Even if that risks her own secrets being revealed…

An absolutely incredible, page-turning psychological thriller with a twist you won’t see coming, for fans of Gone GirlBehind Closed Doors and Ruth Ware.

As you can see, I've strayed from my normal YA genre, I read The Suspect a few weeks ago and loved it, so figured I would take another foray into the mystery, thriller & suspense genre. What books have you picked up this week?
