Great New YA Fantasy Titles

With the success of Twilight, Melissa De La Cruz's Blue Bloods and Neil's Graveyard Book

Mortal Instruments trilogy
begins with City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
If you like Harry Potter you should try this magical YA series featuring Clary and The Shadowhunters, a race of Nephilim created by the Angel Raziel to protect mankind.

Another beautiful crafted YA tale is Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner.
Fear of magic runs deep in Liza's small town. Sensibly all things Faerie are immediately stamped out upon discovery. So when 15 rear old Liza finds that she has the ability to see—into the past, into the future— she has no choice but to flee before she too is killed. ..
Janni is signing this book at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore on Feb 7 at 2 pm

And lastly a delightful tale not to missed is Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar.
It's not easy being a member of the royal Thane or growing up in the MacRinnalck clan. It's so challenging in fact, that in a fit of rage, angst filled 17-year-old Kalix MacRinnalck almost kills her father and is forced to flee her ancestral home in Scotland. She finds herself on the mean streets of London flopping in abandoned buildings and alleys nursing a laudanum habit, her only comfort. That is until two misfit humans show up, and to Kalix's surprise, offer her home and friendship.. I've found myself perusing the YA section more frequently and found there among the shelves some wondrously magical new series.
