The first in a spellbinding duology, This Poison Heart is a creative twist on Greek mythology. The story follows Briseis (also known as Bri), a young black woman who has the powers to make plants bloom with a single touch. When her aunt dies, Bri and her family leave their Brooklyn life behind for the summer, with Bri hoping to learn how to control her power. Instead, Bri stumbles upon an old curse and a dangerous group out to exploit her talents, and it’s up to her to protect her family.
This Wicked Fate, the sequel, is also available in Teen Central!

Instead of natural matches, young girls are required to attend the Annual Ball, and hope they are chosen by men of the kingdom. Sophia, one of these many young girls, does not wish to marry a random man. She would rather stay with her childhood sweetheart, Erin. In a desperate attempt to avoid her fate, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella. Together, they team up to learn the truth behind Cinderella’s fate– and take the kingdom down for good.

However, the reason for his friend’s coldness may be only the first step to a greater mystery…
