Ruin and Rising (The Grisha #3) by Leigh Bardugo
The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.
Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.
Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.
Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

Push (The Game #2) by Eve Silver
It’s either break the rules or die.
Jones lives her life by her own strict set of rules, to keep control,
to keep the gray fog of grief at bay. Then she’s pulled into the Game,
where she—and her team—will die unless she follows a new set of rules:
those set by the mysterious Committee.
But rules don’t mean
answers, and without answers, it’s hard to trust. People are dying. The
rules are unraveling. And Miki knows she’s being watched, uncertain if
it’s the Drau or someone—something—else. Forced to make impossible
choices and battling to save those she loves, Miki begins to see the
Committee in a glaring new light.
And then the Game crosses a new
boundary, pushes harder into Miki’s and her friends’ lives, and there’s
nothing in the rules that can save them now.
Push is the sequel Rush fans will be screaming for.
