Firstborns rule society. Secondborns are the property of the government. Thirdborns are not tolerated. Long live the Fates Republic. On Transition Day, the second child in every family is taken by the government and forced into servitude. Roselle St. Sismode's eighteenth birthday arrives with harsh realizations: she's to become a soldier for the Fate of Swords military arm of the Republic during the bloodiest rebellion in history, and her elite firstborn mother is happy to see her go. Televised since her early childhood, Roselle's privileged upbringing has earned her the resentment of her secondborn peers. Now her decision to spare an enemy on the battlefield marks her as a traitor to the state. But Roselle finds an ally--and more--in fellow secondborn conscript Hawthorne Trugrave. As the consequences of her actions ripple throughout the Fates Republic, can Roselle create a destiny of her own? Or will her Fate override everything she fights for--even love?

Rebel warrior Roselle St. Sismode returns in the second book of the epic Secondborn series by USA Today bestselling author Amy A. Bartol. In the Fates Republic... Firstborns reign supreme. Secondborns kneel in servitude. Thirdborns face death. And Census shadows them all. Secondborn Roselle St. Sismode was pressed into military service to battle the rebel uprising threatening the society that enslaves her. Now, powerful factions conspire to subvert the lines of succession, positioning Roselle to replace her mother as leader of the Republic's armed forces. But the woman who bore her would sooner see Roselle dead than let her usurp her firstborn brother's command. The deadly war of intrigue between her new masters and her ruthless family is but one conflict challenging Roselle. A soldier for the rebellion has drawn her into a rogue army's plot to overthrow the Republic and shatter its brutal caste system. Targeted by assassins and torn between allies, Roselle will have her loyalty, love, and honor tested in the greatest battle of--and for--her life.

Book One It was an inherited struggle for many generations of those living on the outskirts of Appalachia. A poor man with poor ways, our father dictated the Bible to his own liking. Hed preach hellfire and brimstone from the pulpit before falling prey to the devils holy water again. Wed as a child, our mother, sixteen years younger than our father, guided her nine children with love and hope that all things be possible through the Lords will. My older brother was not just my brother but also my best friend. Wed confide in each other to protect our mother as hatred of our fathers sinful ways grew. With trembling hands, Id reach out to touch the dead giants that I gained courage to carry on. But at last a prayer was answered as we played in the cool springs at our farm and anticipated having a warm house to spend the cold winter in.

My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I'd been hoping that once I'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that I've been having would go away. It hasn't. I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I'm grounded…sane. I look for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you're thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would be…if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I'm the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But get this, for some reason every time I turn around he's there, barging into my life. What is the secret that he's keeping from me? I'm hoping that it's anything but what I suspect: that he's not exactly normal…and neither am I. So, maybe Crestwood won't be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I've been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.

Winner of four 2014 UtopYA Awards, including Best Book of the Year and Best Sci-Fi Book of the Year Kricket Hollowell never wished upon stars. She was too busy hiding in plain sight, eluding Chicago's foster care system. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, she now eagerly anticipates the day she'll stop running and finally find her place in the world. That day comes when she meets a young Etharian soldier named Trey Allairis, who has been charged with coming to Earth to find Kricket and transport her to her true home. As danger draws close, he must protect her until she can wield the powers she cannot use on Earth...and he soon realizes that counting a galaxy of stars would be easier than losing this extraordinary girl. Kyon Ensin knows the powerful depths of Kricket's gifts--gifts he'll control when he takes her for his tribe and leads the forces that will claim Ethar and destroy his enemies, starting with Trey Allairis. Now, Kricket faces the most difficult choice of her life: whether to wage a battle for survival, or a fight for love.

Joseph has a vision for his family and nation. And as a successful trader and merchant, he might just have amassed a large enough fortune to bring it to reality. Though he has built his home and business in Sepphoris, the most beautiful city in Galilee, all his hopes rest on his firstborn son, James, who is studying for the priesthood far south in Roman-occupied Jerusalem. Important people say James may grow up to be the Righteous One, who would restore Israel to God’s favor. Joseph has charged his other children to support James in the family’s quest. Second-born Jesus, however, is a troublemaker. Third son Judas, who looks so much like Jesus that he is nicknamed Thomas (the Twin), stutters terribly and follows meekly in Jesus’s shadow. Fourth son Simon has difficulty learning and suffers bullying at the hands of rough boys who work in the fields. Their sisters Joanna and Susanna seem built in the mold of their mother, Miriam, who is the dominant force that maintains discipline in the family. Second Born finds a plausible middle ground between the Gospel stories of the New Testament and scholars’ search for the “historic Jesus.” It follows him and his brothers from preteens to adulthood as they each grow into and come to accept their separate roles in the family’s quest to restore dignity to Roman-occupied Israel. History tells us that Jesus’s brother came to be known as James the Just, and scholars have tried to track the travels and travails of Jude and Simon in the decades following the Crucifixion and the later destruction of Jerusalem. Why do the Gospels tell us that Jesus shunned his family? Second Born’s answers to that question may change a reader’s perception of Christianity and make it easier to maintain the faith.

She never asked for the undying loyalty of a necromancer. 1913. Austria-Hungary. Wendel may be devilishly handsome, a charming bastard with the manners of disinherited royalty, but he's an abomination. His skin shivers with the icy fire of necromancy. With one touch, he can raise the dead. Worse still, he's being hunted by assassins from Constantinople, and he would rather die than confess why. Ardis escaped her own dark past, fleeing from America as a fugitive to become a mercenary for the Archmages of Vienna. When she discovers Wendel bleeding out on the battlefield, she saves his life with a ransom in mind. She never asked for him to fall to one knee and declare his undying loyalty, or for tension to smolder hot between them. Especially once she discovers his scars run much deeper than his skin.
