Daughter of Darkness – Juliana Haygert

She is destined to kill a demon.
He is sent to protect her.
One of them is about to fail ...

He spent centuries in the dark ...

After 300 years spent in the underworld as a punishment, warrior Devon is called on by the gods for a chance to fix his mistake--and to win his redemption. But there's a catch: the gods won't tell him details about his mission. He's supposed to suffer while trying to figure out what he did wrong in the past, and fix it in the present.

All Kenna ever wanted was to be the owner of her own life and destiny. But for now all she can do is run away from the evil wanting to claim her powers.

 ... until she came ...

When Devon becomes unintentionally entangled in his new neighbor's life, he can't help but feel he's closer to his purpose. Every moment he spends with Kenna makes him confused, and every time he touches her, glimpses of the past, of his failed mission, come back to haunt him.

... and showed him the light.

Darkness is closing in, and with Kenna's help, Devon needs to put the pieces of the puzzle together before he fails his mission again and evil consumes the world.

Only this time, he's sure he won't be the only one damned.

The Fae & The Fallen (Gifted Fae Academy Book 1) – Brittni Chenelle

My first kiss nearly killed me—literally

When 80% of the population is gifted with touch magic, it’s best to keep your hands—and your lips—to yourself. Especially if you’re an ungifted serf like I am. 

The problem is, the most dangerous guy at Gifted Fae Academy is the one I want to touch more than anything, even as I draw the attention of the school’s most gorgeous Apprentice Fae. 

When my entry exam leads to the revelation that I may not be as Ungifted as I previously believed… well… surviving until graduation might prove harder than I thought—particularly when a certain fatal touch may be worth the risk.

Docia Departed (The Wayward and the Wicked Book 1) – Angela Kulig

What if everything you died for was a lie?

Seventeen-year-old Docia Gutierrez willingly trades what's left of her life for that of another: a boy who told her lies, and a love that doesn't exist.

Now she is paying for sins she can't even grasp, while being brutalized by a broken heart and a bargain she's only beginning to understand—left to rot in a harsh otherworld of nightmares and ruin. In her darkest moments, Docia wishes for an end that is already upon her—and it's in one of those moments, he finds her.

Fallen Angel, Fox, knows all about paying for crimes you didn't commit—they say—he's the Patron Saint of them. It's a title he wishes he could shake, just like his gray wings and half-moon eyes. It marks him for what he is and what he isn't, just like every other cold truth.

Fox isn't dark or light, nor is he hopeless—not yet—but after an eternity of chasing atonement, he is jaded, and now he's Docia's only chance out of the otherworld. The road in and out of hell is paved with good intentions, but at the end of that road, Docia must choose who or what she wants more than life itself.
