Hearts That Cut

It's been five weeks since Io, descendant of the Fates, left the city of Alante to follow the golden thread in search of the god on the other end. Her investigation takes a turn for the worst when her only lead vanishes, but not before she gathers some crucial clues. Now Io has a new mystery to solve - sibling disappearances across the Wastelands that seem to be connected to the murders in Alante. And all signs point to Nanzy, the golden city, as the centre of the conspiracy. As Io journeys to Nanzy, she makes powerful enemies, finds allies and uncovers a horrifying plot that traces back centuries. The more she learns, the more she suspects that the future of the world rests on her shoulders. But how much of the future is Io's choice, and how much is simply her fate?

Of Jade and Dragons

Eighteen-year-old Aihui Ying dreams of becoming a brilliant engineer just like her beloved father - but her life is torn apart when she arrives a moment too late to stop his murder, and worse, lets the killer slip out of reach. Left with only a journal containing his greatest engineering secrets and a jade pendant snatched from the assassin, Ying vows to take revenge into her own hands. Disguised as her brother, Ying heads to the capital city, and discovers that the answer to finding who killed her father lies behind the walls of the prestigious Engineers Guild - the home of a past her father never wanted to talk about. With the help of an unlikely ally - Aogiya Ye-yang, a taciturn (but very handsome) young prince - Ying must navigate a world fraught with rules, challenges and politics. But to survive, she must fight to stay one step ahead of everyone.
