Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with Prince Kai's, she finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction.
All throughout her life, she's been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party...
Eli and his family lived in an underground shelter called The Compound for six years. They thought they were the only survivors of a nuclear attack, but when Eli learned that it was a twisted experiment orchestrated by his father, he broke the family out.
The world is living in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week's time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn't how to save the world-the question is, what to do with the time that's left?

In S.A. Bodeen's The Fallout, Eli and his family have lived in an underground shelter for six years.
