* ''Hunter'', her latest book in what promises to be a series, of a dystopian future Earth, where otherwordly creatures, most with some basis out of various myths and legends, appear and attack the world (most likely due to some Christians setting off a nuke in attempt to kickstart the Apocalypse). Hunters, or those born with some kind of magic, are recruited and trained by the capital, Apex City, to fight the monsters, known as Othersiders, with the aid of their Hounds, supernatural creatures that allied with the humans. The book focuses on a young Hunter named Joyeaux Charmand.
