1. Kingdom of the Cursed

This sequel to Kerri Maniscalco's Kingdom of the Wicked doubles down on the romance and mystery of its predecessor. In Kingdom of the Cursed, Emilia seeks to avenge her twin sister in the Seven Circles. Deep inside a world of vice, she finds herself tested in every possible way as she attempts to unlock clues that will reveal the answers she craves. Make sure to order your BAM! Exclusive Wrath Edition of this book, which features bonus content you won't find anywhere else! 

2. Court

For readers who have experienced the epic thrill ride of Tracy Wolff's Crave series, the sixth and final book will not disappoint. Court brings readers back to a world filled with bloodthirsty vampires, gods, and monsters. With war on the horizon and an army that's not ready for the fight, there's no guarantee that anyone will make it through unscathed.

3. Gilded

Classic fairy tales reimagined is a concept that's growing in popularity. Gilded by New York Times bestselling author Marissa Meyer isn't just another one of these. This haunting spin on Rumpelstiltskin is a true standout. Eerie and grimly evocative, the book casts a spell on readers who will devour each chapter to see if the poor miller's daughter can break the ancient curse that has her locked away by a tyrannical king.

4. Beasts of Prey

This book by Ayana Gray kicks off what's expected to be a sizzling-hot series. Beasts of Prey centers on two Black teenagers as they forge a fateful alliance in an effort to take down the monster threatening their hometown. In the Greater Jungle, a world of powerful magic and overwhelming danger, Koffi and Ekon set out on their mission. The biggest question is: Are they the hunters or the hunted? 

5. The Righteous

The third installment of Renée Ahdieh's spellbinding series that began with The Beautiful and continued with The Damned, The Righteous is the most enthralling one yet. The story draws readers deeper than ever into the atmospheric fantasy world filled with mysteries, romance, and fae around every corner. This book is a thrilling lead-in to the equally anticipated finale of the four-book series.
