Grave (Queen of the Dead):  Michelle Sagara

Emma and her friends have survived the Necromancers sent to the city to kill them. They've gone to ground in a cottage north of the city, but time is not on their side. There are no barriers that can keep the dead out, and the dead obey their Queen. It's only a matter of time before they're found. Nathan has been blessed by the Queen of the Dead. She has granted him a physical body. He can eat, he can breathe, he can speak and be heard. The Queen calls this resurrection. Nathan calls it Hell. The living think he's alive. He's not. He's trapped in the citadel that the Queen of the Dead calls home. Emma wants to free him. To do that she has to survive long enough to reach the City of the Dead, and face its ancient Queen. But the city of the dead is the heart of the Queen's stronghold - and her power. Emma can't do it alone. She's not alone. But even with hunters and her own dead at her side, what hope does she have against a woman who has lived so long, and grown so powerful, she's almost a god?

Infinity's Illusion:  Richard Farr 

After narrowly surviving an encounter with the Architects, Daniel Calder experiences visions of global destruction, dreamlike moments of insight, and vivid "memories" of a meeting with a famous scientist - none of which ever happened. When he and his sister, Morag Chen, are attacked by unknown assailants deep in the cavernous city of the I'iwa cave dwellers, they must escape with an enigmatic, centuries-old mathematical calculation. Time is running out. All signs point to the final "Anabasis," when the Babel myth will reach its terrible culmination. But thousands of miles of hazardous jungle and unforgiving ocean lie between the siblings and their one slim chance to fight back. As they undertake their perilous journey, the apocalypse seems imminent: scores of vanished believers, global telecom failures, societies in chaos. The Architects have set the stage for their conquest, and Morag and Daniel - armed only with a list of mysterious numbers and the dreams of an aging astrophysicist - seem hopelessly outmatched.

Time Shadows:  Deborah D. Moore 

Morgan, a powerful 800-year-old sorceress, wants to make amends for the bad things she's done during her long life. She has perfected a spell that opens a gateway to the past - the only problem is that she can't return to a time she's already lived through. If she does, both her younger spirit and her current form would cease to exist. The only solution is to convince someone to travel back for her - someone that wouldn't be missed if things went wrong. Sage Aster doesn't really believe that Morgan can send her back to the past, so as payment for the kindness Morgan showed her when she was homeless and alone, Sage agrees to the time travel experiment. She is then stunned to find herself transported back to 1912 aboard the doomed Titanic. Again and again Sage is sent back to different timelines, never quite knowing what she is supposed to accomplish - or how to make things right.

Zero Day:  Ezekiel Boone 

The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come. The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer's theory that we need to kill only the queens? For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it's an easy answer. She's gone as far as she can - more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder - and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don't agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what's more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?
