The Demon's Lexicon
By: Sarah Rees Brennan

Nick and his brother, Alan, have spent their lives on the run from magic. Their father was murdered, and their mother was driven mad by magicians and the demons who give them power. The magicians are hunting the Ryves family for a charm that Nick's mother stole - a charm that keeps her alive - and they want it badly enought to kill again.

Danger draws even closer when a brother and sister come to the Ryves family for help. The boy wears a demon's mark, a sign of death that almost nothing can erase...and when Alan also gets marked by a demon, Nick is desperate to save him. The only way to do that is to kill one of the magicians they have been hiding from for so long.

Ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Nick starts to suspect that his brother is telling him lie after lie about their past. As the magicians' Circle closes in on the family, Nick uncovers the secret that could destroy them all.

From Back of Book:

Kaida Hutchenson isn't exactly psyched for the class trip to Carlsbad Cavers. Fourteen hours in a van with preeppy jock Zeke Anderson and high-school loner Joy Tallon? No, thank you.

But when a tragic and explosive accident turns the journey into a nightmare, Kaida would give anything to be back on the road. Stumbling at midnight through the unforgiving deserts, Kaida, Zeke, and Joy take refuge in an abandoned cave...until the world goes from pitch-black to blinding. The next thing Kaida knows, she's back home and everything is just as it was before the trip ever took place. Or is it?

Increasingly unnerved by the distorted world around her, Kaida starts receiving unexpected help from mysterious people. Soon she must band together with Zeke and Joy to try to make it back to the reality she remembers...and to survive the one she's fallen into.
