Leigh Bardugo has topped charts as a Young Adult author, but her newest title—Ninth Houseis her first aimed towards adult audiences. Galaxy Sterns has tried to escape her atypical beginnings (a hippie mother and a penchant for getting in trouble) by changing her name to just “Alex,” but she has not been very successful. She is as surprised as anyone when she is approached with an offer to attend Yale—free of charge and with no questions asked—as long as she is willing to investigate the secret societies that operate there. Alex soon finds that these groups are far more dangerous than she could have imagined, and the occult forces that they tamper with could put everyone in danger. Find out the secrets at the root of one of America’s most prestigious universities when Bardugo’s Ninth House arrives on October 8.

After falling in love on a two-week vacation, Sam Brandis broke Tate’s heart by betraying her secret identity. When they reunite as adults, Tate must deal with her continuing feelings and attraction to the man who betrayed her as a boy. Does true love really only come once in a blue moon? Find out when Christina Lauren’s newest romance arrives on October 22.

The Night Fire, the second book in Michael Connelly’s series following Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch, will arrive on October 22. When Harry Bosch’s old mentor dies, his widow gifts Bosch with a book that his mentor had held onto since retiring twenty years ago. When Bosch begins to dig into the old case, the murder of a young man in a seedy alley, he struggles to find what had caught his mentor’s attention so long ago. Bosch brings in Renee Ballard for assistance, but they find the answers to their question may not be what they expect. Was his mentor obsessed with solving this case or making sure it remained a mystery?
