Summary

Tucked in a box, in the back of her closet, seventeen-year-old Elisabeth London hid the secrets of a summer five years ago. The items inside are a reminder to never time-travel again. After almost being burnt at the stake in 17th century Scotland, the shy teenager believes life is perfect the way it is now; calm and stable. 
When a tormented man from Elisabeth's past begs her to travel back in time to save his life, she reluctantly agrees. Elisabeth assumes Scotland is the destination and is horrified when she arrives in Ancient Rome instead. 
The good news is she finds the man; now a cheeky, fun-loving, seventeen-year-old boy named Aquarius. The bad news is he's an indentured slave, sentenced to death in the arena, and has no idea who she is yet. 
Elisabeth helps Aquarius escape and becomes an outlaw herself. Armed with nothing but her wits and his rock sling, the new friends are on the run from Rufus Leptis, a relentless slave-dealer whose job is to hunt them down. 
Elisabeth soon realizes she's here to save Aquarius, not from Rufus or the arena, but from the doomed city of Pompeii. She's trying to be brave, but the thought of remaining in his swashbuckling world a minute longer than necessary is inconceivable. 
At least, it used to be. 
Before that darn, happy-go-lucky slave stole her heart.

    Pretty Little Liars meets Beautiful Creatures in this thrilling follow-up to Kiki Sullivan's The Dolls. 
    It's only been a couple of months since Eveny Cheval discovered that she's a powerful queen of zandara, the voodoo-like form of magic that has controlled the town of Carrefour for generations. She barely has time to consider what this means, though, before she's attacked by the murderous anti-magic organization Main de Lumière. 
    Alarmed, her powerful father—who has returned to Carrefour to protect Eveny—takes her and her sister zandara queens, Peregrine and Chloe, to his home on mysterious Caouanne Island. But the island holds its own secrets about Eveny's past—and her future. Now she's torn between two magical traditions—and two boys: strong and silent Caleb, who's pushing her away, and charismatic Bram, who seems too good to be true. 
    With Main de Lumière closing in and Carrefour's defenses crumbling, Eveny, her sister queens, and the townspeople she's supposed to protect are in danger. And as the revelations about her past continue to unfold, Eveny begins to realize that she might just be the only one who can save them all.
