August 2015 Debut of the Month Ghost, Cormac and Kate are from different continents and would seem to have little in common other than the fact that they are ‘Hinin’ – living on the streets. But they each have special powers: Ghost can make himself invisible; Cormac has amazing physical prowess and can run, climb and jump like no-one else; Kate can talk to animals. Because of this they are recruited into the Black Lotus, a mysterious resistance operation determined to prevent President Goda’s oppressive Empire from world domination. The action in this unusual dystopian adventure takes place in present-day New York and 16th century Japan and it’s full of atmosphere and excitement. What young superhero fan wouldn’t want to be part of the Black Lotus, battling alongside these three teenage ninjas? Intelligent escapist fun!

~ Andrea Reece

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher What would be your special power? Fanning’s astonishing young team have amazing abilities to cope with awesome threats from a truly mighty foe, but it’s friendship that turns out to be the most unbeatable power of all! Still, I’d choose something practical but cool – walking on the ceiling, I think. You?

Synopsis

The Black Lotus by Kieran Fanning

Ghost, Cormac and Kate are not like other kids. Ghost can turn invisible, Cormac can run up walls and Kate can talk to animals - all abilities which make them perfect recruits for the Black Lotus, a training school for ninjas. But when the Moon Sword - a source of unimaginable power - is stolen by samurai, the three are forced to put their new skills to the test in sixteenth-century Japan.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
