The Starlight Claim by Tim Wynne-Jones
Four months ago, Nate’s best friend Doge disappeared near their families’. Nate secretly decides to make the treacherous trek to the remote campsite alone in a journey that’s half pilgrimage, half desperate hope he will find his missing friend. Instead he finds three men who have escaped from a maximum-security prison. Snowed in by a blizzard and with no cell signal, Nate is confronted with troubling memories and realizes that his survival now depends on his wits as much as his wilderness skills.

Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin (Serpent & Dove, Book One)
Two years ago, Louise fled her coven and took shelter in Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted, feared, and burned.

The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.
