    Summary

    "This isn’t the first time that his heart has skipped and plummeted and swelled and ached with raw emotion; that he swore he would burst at the seams with how much his feelings fill him up.

    And it’s not the first time Bellamy has felt that way because of Clarke. For Clarke. He can’t tell you when it began though either, or when he realized it for what it is. Sometimes he wonders if he’s loved her all along."

    Here’s to the rip-roaring quiet kind of love.

    Summary

    “2149 is bleak. The economy is suffering, the air is so polluted it gives us all lung cancer, we’ve ignored global warming and stripped the earth of all her best resources, overpopulation has plagued our society for 100 years. Not all hope is lost though! If you’re in one of these highly sought after career fields you, yes you could get a one way ticket to the past, to our future’s greatest hope, Terra Nova.”

    “Turn that shit off,” Clarke said as Raven sat comfortably watching the TV.

    “I’m watching the game, it’s not my fault there’s a recruiting commercial on,” Raven defended.

    “I don’t even know who paid for those commercials. Probably the government to make people excited about the colony.” Clarke spun around a few times looking for something in their tiny apartment. “You, of all people, know it’s not that easy to get there. They don’t need a commercial to find people to go. Everyone is falling over themselves to get there. So and so’s cousin knows a guy, a sister of a friend of a coworker heard there’s a trick to the lottery.”

    “I can’t believe they’re not advertising with dinosaurs. Everybody fuckin’ loves dinosaurs. That’s a selling point,” Raven said with a bright grin.

    Summary

    With both parents passed away and a younger sister to support, Bellamy Blake may not have drawn the easiest lot in life. But he had a plan: Rise through the ranks of the Royal Navy, find a good husband for his sister, make Lieutenant or maybe even Captain, and keep sailing and fighting until he died at sea. What he had not planned for was suddenly inheriting a title, complete with lands and fortune.
    Instead of simply trying to stay alive long enough to get Octavia settled comfortably, now he had to figure out how to run an estate, bring his sister out into society while protecting her from rakes and fortune hunters, and remember his manners around one stubborn, haughty, irresistible Lady Clarke Griffin, Daughter of the Earl of Arkton – and very soon the bane of his existence.

    Summary

    Arkadia is the only land of civilization left after a long treacherous war. It has been a hundred years of rebuilding, reforming, and constitutionalizing society. The rules are harsh, food and water scarce, and the living conditions worse, but the council members believe it is the only way to ensure survival. Clarke Griffin disagrees.

    So she leaves, goes to the one place she knows that will help her, or more so that she can offer help to.

    Skicru.

    Their leader is the angry and notoriously confident Bellamy Blake, and Clarke doesn't know whether that will help her or hurt her.

    Summary

    “New research has surfaced regarding the movement to wean citizens off of the dangerous, addictive practices, popularly known as sorcery.” The broadcast crackled in the distance, the station cutting in and out. “–developed particularly for at risk youths. Parents are asked to brief at risk children on the dangers and then send them to the treatment facilities, where they will be cared for until they are deemed healthy and safe enough to return home.”
     

    Magic has been outlawed. Raven's been recruit for an underground sorcerer's rebellion. Bellamy's hiding in plain sight. And Wells just wants to find Clarke again.
