Bruchac, Joseph  
Killer of Enemies
Ages 11 and up. There were the Ones - people so augmented with technology and genetic enhancements that they were barely human - and there was everyone else who served them. Then the Cloud came, tech stopped working, and the world plunged back into a new steam age. The Ones' genetically engineered monsters turned on them, and are now loose on the world. To keep her Apache family safe, seventeen-year-old Lozen hunts monsters for the Ones who survive. But with every monster she takes down, Lozen's magical abilities grow. She is not just a hired gun. As the legendary Killer of Enemies was in the ancient days of her people, Lozen is meant to be a hero.

Carlson, Caroline  
Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates #1: Magic Marks the Spot
Ages 8 and up. Hilary has always dreamed of being a pirate. She can tread water for thirty-seven minutes. She can tie knots faster than a fleet of sailors. And she owns a rather pointy sword. But girls are not allowed in the League. Girls belong in finishing school, learning how to faint, waltz, and curtsey. To escape a life of petticoats and politeness, Hilary and her gargoyle friend set out on an adventure that may or may not involve a map without an X, a magical treasure that doesn't exist, a rogue governess, a crew of misfit scallywags, and the most treacherous - and unexpected - villain on the High Seas.
