9780062006080: Arcadia Burns

Following the brutal deaths of her sister and aunt, Rosa Alcantara has become what she never thought possible: the very rich and very powerful head of the Alcantara clan. Saddled with this immense responsibility, Rosa must now conduct all business matters—legitimate and not—while negotiating among the greedy, bloodthirsty members of her own family. Not to mention convincing everyone that her blossoming relationship with enemy Alessandro Carnevare won't put the family business in danger.

But loving Alessandro comes at a price. As Rosa continues to fall for him, she discovers the dark secrets of his family's dealings and how they intersect with her own painful past. She wants to believe she can trust Alessandro, but they're so different: Alcantara and Carnevare, snake and panther. How can she love someone whose family wants her dead?

When Rosa and Alessandro uncover an ancient conspiracy intent on destroying both clans, they will do anything to stop it. Racing to put the pieces together, evading their relatives' murderous feud, and learning what it means to control the most influential families in all of Sicily—the two teens must risk everything to love each other and survive.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up-This sequel to Arcadia Awakens (HarperCollins, 2012) picks up shortly after that book ended. Rosa Alcantara, 18, has learned to deal with her ability to shape-shift into a snake. With the death of her sister and aunt, she finds herself the head of her Italian Mafia family, and she must constantly guard against those who are looking to overthrow her for money or other personal gain. She finds it difficult to maintain her relationship with handsome Alessandro Carnevare. His relatives are also shape-shifters, but they are panthers and longtime enemies of her family. As Rosa rises to power, she uncovers a secret that her father had kept-an old conspiracy known as the TABULA, which threatens to destroy the Alcantara and the Carnevare clans. Both teens scramble to protect their families even though it might mean that they can't be together. The combination of supernatural elements, the Mafia, and forbidden love makes the story line unique and complex. Sure to appeal to readers who prefer action and dark mysteries.-Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MIα(c) Copyright 2013.
