Sonya was born with a rare gift to feel what those around her feel-both physically and emotionally-a gift she's kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left int he world who still trust her.

But Sonya's power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can't decipher when other people's impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.

As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust--and which to betray. (Summary from Goodreads)

Geez, this sounds like a crazy power to have...perhaps overwhelming. An intriguing story, I can't wait!

Kadence Mulligan's star was rising. She and her best friend, Lauren DeSanto, watched their songs go viral on YOUTube, then she launched a solo career when a nasty throat infection paralyzed Lauren's vocal chords. Everyone knows Lauren and Kadence had a major falling-out over Kady's boyfriend. But Lauren knows how deceptive Kadence could be sometimes, And nobody believes Lauren when she claims she had nothing to do with the disappearance. Or the blood evidence. As the town and local media condemns Lauren, she realizes the only way to clear her name is to discover the truth herself. Lauren slowly unravels the twisted life of Kadence Mulligan and sees that there was more to her than she ever knew. But will she realize she's unknowingly playing a part in an elaborate game to cover up a crime before it's too late? (Summary from Goodreads)
