Recommended Reading: Julie Kagawa

Julie Kagawa has firmly cemented herself as one of best young adult fantasy writers.

First came The Iron Fey series. We follow Meghan Chase, a half-human teenage girl pulled into the Faery realms and trapped in between the clashes of the Winter and Summer Fey against a terrifying new kind of faery, the Iron Fey. She also battles her way through a love triangle that rivals Twilight's Team Edward/Team Jacob. 

Then The Blood of Eden trilogy. These vampires definitely don't sparkle. In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities. Outside city walls: a vast wilderness, stalked by terrifying creatures called rabids. Created when humans and vampires attempted to cure Red Lung, rabids prowl by night, mindless and ravenous for human blood. Allison Sekemoto is a life-long Fringer: always hunted, always hungry. But when forced to choose between agonizing death and becoming what she hates…Allie takes immortality.

And now Kagawa is launching a new fantasy series all about dragons. Talon, released in 2014, revolves around dragons with the ability to disguise themselves as humans and an order of warriors sworn to eradicate them. The dragons of TALON and the Order of St. George have been at war with each other for centuries. The fabled creatures, whose existence is unknown by the general public, are determined to rule the world. Their foes, a legendary society of dragon slayers, are equally bent on driving the fabled beasts into extinction. However, when a young dragon and a hardened slayer unknowingly befriend each other, it has severe repercussions for both organizations.
Rogue, book two in the series, will be hitting selves in April 2015. 

You can check all of these excellent fantasy titles out from the library!
