Author: Ryan Graudin
Release Date: February 11, 2014
Published by: HarperTeen

Emrys - a fiery, red-headed Fae - always embraced her life in the Highlands, far from the city's draining technology, until she's sent to London to rejoin the Faery Guard. But this isn't any normal assignment - she's sent to guard Prince Richard: Britain's notorious, partying bad boy and soon-to-be King. The prince's careless ways and royal blood make him the irresistible for the dark spirits that feed on mortals. Sweet, disheveled, and alive with adventure - Richard is one charge who will put Emrys's magic and heart to the test.
When an ancient force begins preying on the monarchy, Emrys must hunt through the London's magical underworld, facing down Banshees, Black Dogs and Green Women to find the one who threatens Richard's life. In this chaos of dark magic, palace murders and paparazzi, Emrys finds herself facing an impossible choice. For despite all her powers, Emrys has discovered a force that burns brighter than magic: love. (Summary from Goodreads)

Anyway, it sounds like a great adventure with dark vs. light elements. Though I have  to say...why does the girl usually have to be the sensible one? Where are more fairy tale stories where the girl is the party-goer and the boy is the sensible magical being? Just saying! I'm still gonna read it! :)


(Untitled Series, Book 1)

Published by: Putnam Juvenile

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.
Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth. (Summary from Goodreads)
