Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating...
Title: "If I Die" (Soul Screamers Book 5)
Author: Rachel Vincent
Release Date: October 1st, 2011
From the Deadline Dames (this isn't the official blurb yet): "No one wants to be this teacher’s pet ...
Everyone else is talking about Eastlake High’s gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck, but Kaylee Cavanaugh has bigger things on her mind. Kaylee’s a banshee—her scream is a portent of death.
But the next scream might hit too close to home. Kaylee’s borrowed lifeline has almost run out.
Yeah—it’s a shock to her, too. So to distract herself from her own problems, Kaylee is determined to defend her school against the latest supernatural threat. That hot new teacher is really an incubus, who feeds from the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend’s delinquent ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren’t quite human either.
But Kaylee’s running out of time, and those who love her will do anything to save her life.
Soul Screamers: The last thing you hear before you die."

Title: "The Watchers"
Author: Inara Scott
Release Date: August 2nd, 2011
From Goodreads: "Dancia's back at Delcroix, but this year, everything's different. Dancia's Talented, and her powers have earned her an invitation to join Delcroix's real raison d'etre --the Program. Dancia's wanted to use her powers to help people all her life -- and now Delcroix is going to give her the training she needs to use her Talent for good. At least...that’s what the school says she’ll learn to do with her powers. Her cuter-than-cute boyfriend Cam insists that it's true, and so do all the other students. But there's still a little voice inside her head that wonders -- if the Program's so great, why did her almost-only-a-friend- Jack run away rather than join? And why would the school be getting attacked by angry ex-students? Dancia's a loyal student...and a loyal girlfriend. But if finding out what's really going on means talking to Jack, well -- it's a risk she just might have to take."
