When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it.

Seraphina - Rachel Hartman
Call Number: F HAR
ISBN: 0375866566
Publication Date: 2012-07-10
In her New York Times bestselling and Morris Award-winning debut, Rachel Hartman introduces mathematical dragons in an alternative-medieval world to fantasy and science-fiction readers of all ages. Eragon-author Christopher Paolini calls them, "Some of the most interesting dragons I've read in fantasy."

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.

The boy on the wooden box - Leon Leyson
Call Number: 940.53 LEY
ISBN: 9781471119675
Publication Date: 2013
A remarkable memoir of hope and bravery unlike anything you have ever read.
The darkest of times can unleash the worst in human nature and also the best. Leon Leyson lived through those times. Forced into the ghettos and concentration camps, separated from his family for months, he experienced things no child should ever experience. But there was one thing that could never be torn away: his will to survive. And one man - one Nazi - showed him that hope can come in the most unexpected way. That man was Oskar Schindler; his famous "list" would mean life for Leon and for more than a thousand other Jews caught in the Nazi net.
The boy on the wooden box is a tour de force- a legacy of hope and a call for all of us to remember those who didn't get a chance for tomorrow.
