In The Scorpion Rules, the Children of Peace – sons and daughters of kings and presidents and generals – are raised together and are taught to accept what may well be their fate: to die if their countries declare war.

This year’s shortlist included, among others, An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet and The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong. Winners will be presented with their awards at a luncheon on June 2.
