The Best of BEA: Harper Collins


For the next few days of BEA I will be featuring bloggers telling us about the ARCs they are most looking forward to getting their hands on, and publishers telling us which ARCs we should be on the lookout for! Today Olivia from Harper Collins will be telling us the five galleys we should make sure to grab this year!


Endgame: The Calling by James Frey

In a world similar to Earth, there are 12 bloodlines, or races. Each bloodline has a champion between the ages of 13 and 17 who is trained as a warrior and is always ready to do battle. When they turn 18, the teen warrior behind them gets promoted. This has been the case for hundreds of years, but no one remembers why — they're always ready for some sort of battle to take place, but it never does. But the tradition continues. And then one day they're called to fight, and all the bloodlines but the winners will be exterminated. They're fighting to be the last race.

ENDGAME is a revolutionary, fully integrated, multimedia book and gaming experience that invites its audience to join twelve Players in a worldwide, puzzle–based scavenger hunt for three hidden keys and the ultimate prize.

The Jewel by Emy Ewing

The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.
Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence... and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.

THE HANDMAID’S TALE meets THE SELECTION in this YA debut, the first in a trilogy. Violet is at the heart of the most opulent city, but has been trapped there in the most dire circumstances.
