February 2017 Book of the Month | In a nutshell: spell-binding drama of teenage witch faced with life-or-death choices | Readers who loved authors Katherine and Elizabeth Corr’s supernatural romance The Witch's Kiss will fall upon the sequel. Teenage witch Merry is still struggling with her strict gran’s witchcraft tutorials, and still doesn’t feel an accepted member of the coven. She’s missing Jack too, the boy she saw die at the end of the previous adventure, and is worried about her brother Leo, who is hiding the deep grief he is feeling for his friend, Dan, also now dead. When a handsome young stranger Ronan moves in to their neighbourhood, both Merry and Leo are intrigued, but should they – can they – trust a wizard? The drama is high, the mix of the occult world with ordinary 21st century teenage life deliciously done, and Merry remains a funny, lively, captivating heroine. Fans will once again sink under the Corr sisters’ spell! If you like this, you’ll also enjoy Ruth Warburton’s The Winter Trilogy and L. A. Weatherly’s Angel Trilogy. ~ Andrea Reece
One of our Books of the Year 2016 | July 2016 Debut of the Month| In a Nutshell: Witchcraft | Vengeance | Dream Boy | Melding ancient witchery with modern-day dilemmas of the heart, this deliciously dark tale is a feast that will be devoured by fans of both fairy-tale fantasy and contemporary romance. 552 AD. A witch binds her descendants to avenge Gwydion, wizard of the Black Lake, who seeks to create an army of human servants “to destroy all love in the world”. Skip forward to our times and teenager Merry is experiencing horrific nightmares, an ache in her fingertips, and there’s a vicious knife attacker on the loose in their quiet town. Merry knows she’s a witch and, while her mum has rejected their heritage, her gran is a member of the local coven. When a boy from Merry’s nightmares appears in her house brandishing a knife, and she discovers an ancient box containing a fragment of paper, braid of human hair and hilt of a sword, Merry’s gran knows that Gwydion has awoken and, as the last of their bloodline, only Merry can extinguish him. The boy who appears to her is Jack, King of Hearts, in some ways a victim of Gwydion, but also a monster who cuts out the hearts of those in love. Soon enough, Merry discovers that there are two sides to Jack. When he’s not possessed by his evil King of Hearts persona, he’s a “hot” young man, and Merry falls madly in love with him. How can she possibly destroy the boy of her dreams? But what terrors will come to pass if she doesn’t? Alongside the danger and drama, this rip-roaring novel is peppered with touches of humour and whimsy, such as when Merry checks Twitter while waiting for the King of Hearts to show up, and her matter-of-fact protest that she “should get to choose whether I want to face some evil wizard or not”. It’s a spellbinding story, and readers will surely feel hungry for the sequel. ~ Joanne Owen
When her father dies just before her birthday, seventeen-year-old Aderyn inherits the role of Protector of Atratys, a dominion in a kingdom where nobles are able to transform at will into the bird that represents their family bloodline. Aderyn's ancestral bird is a swan. But she has not transformed for years, not since witnessing the death of her mother - ripped apart by hawks that have supposedly been extinct since the long-ago War of the Raptors. With the benevolent shelter of her mother and her father now lost, Aderyn is at the mercy of her brutal uncle, the King, and his royal court. Driven by revenge and love, she must venture into the malevolent heart of the Citadel in order to seek the truth about the attack that so nearly destroyed her, to fight for the only home she has ever known and for the land she has vowed to protect. Written in rich detail and evocative language, this is the start of an irresistible, soaring duology about courage, broken loyalties and fighting for your place in the world.
