The Replacement
(Paperback)
Brenna Yovanoff
This novel is a breath of fresh air in the young adult paranormal genre because 1) this story is not romance-led and 2) the main character isn't female with tortured yearnings. The Replacement has a brilliantly realised male lead in Mackie Doyle that embodies the adolescent angst of not fitting in with peers, of not belonging with their family, that their differences make them a freak. Except that for Mackie all those feelings are fact. Yovanoff has written a story that is new and exciting, and created a richly painted 'otherworld' that is as colourful, abstract and esoteric as a music video for a Marilyn Manson/Lady Gaga collaboration. I seriously, seriously enjoyed this novel, and since I am in the same company as Lauren Kate and Maggie Stiefvater in that enjoyment, I think it's pretty safe to say you will too! - Neil

To Kill a Mockingbird

Gone
(Paperback)
Michael Grant
So you're sitting in class daydreaming as usual when the teacher disappears. At first you think it's a trick but then you realise that EVERYONE over the age of 15 is GONE. What I love most about Gone is that you're not exactly sure what it is. Part Golding's Lord of the Flies, where the initial euphoria of no rules gives way to a savage dog eat dog way of life and part Lovecraftian horror where an ancient evil is controlling events to who knows what ends. The characters are well defined, being reluctant heroes with flaws that make them all too believably human, or at least part-human. Gone is a fast-paced, action-packed read which will make you hunger for more. - Sam

Ghost Town
(Paperback)
Rachel Caine
I am a huge fan of Rachel Caine, so it's pretty safe to say I will tell you to read the ninth novel in the Morganville series. Ghost Town deals with the aftermath of events in books seven and eight, which left Morganville without security measures, and in a political war between rival vampires and rebel humans. But there is another problem: the living and un-dead of Morganville are losing their memories. Lovers become strangers. friends become enemies, and in a town where it's 'kill or be eaten' how do you keep friends close and enemies closer when either could cost you your life? Once again Caine delivers a clever, fast, humorous read that has so many of those 'Rachel Caine edge of seat' moments, that Ghost Town will not disappoint. - Neil

The Iron Witch
(Paperback)
Karen Mahoney
Following great success, with her short stories featured in young adult anthologies Eternal Kiss and Kiss Me Deadly, The Iron Witch is Karen Mahoney's debut novel. And what a debut - this novel is amazing! It explores areas of paranormal storytelling that are both familiar and different, and like an alchemist from her own story, she mixes these elements together and creates a brilliantly realised, and different world. The lead character Donna Underwood is strong, feisty and, unlike many female characters, ready to stand up and fight for herself, and the ones she loves, rather than wait around for a guy to save her. With its mix of fairies, alchemy, love and adventure, Iron Witch is an increadibly enjoyable read that will appeal to veteran readers of the genre, and would be a brilliant first read for those wanting to dip a toe in the ocean of Young Adult Paranormal. I cannot wait for the next instalments in this trilogy. - Neil

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn:...
(Hardback)
Mark Twain; Oliver Ho; Dan Andreasen;...
Well, if this isn’t the original Great American Novel, I don’t know what is. On the surface, this is an adventure, the tale of Huck Finn as a runaway, rafting down the Mississippi River with the slave Jim as his companion and of the evolution of their unlikely friendship. Published in the post-US Civil War era, this is also a satirical send-up of genteel, yet very racist, Southern society. Read this book to understand the true beginnings of American literature. - Cindy.

Good Little Wolf
(Paperback)
Nadia Shireen
 
A charming tale that lightly challenges the idea of the big bad wolf, this comical story will bring back plenty of pleasant memories for the reader - young or old - as it makes reference to the popular 'Three Little Pigs' fairytale. The enchanting illustrations simply add to this wholesome story, altogether making it a wonderful read. - Emily

Demons of the Ocean
(Paperback)
Justin Somper
This tale is set in 2505, when most of the Earth is underwater and when whoever rules the oceans rules the world. Twins Grace and Connor Tempest become separated in a shipwreck after fleeing their home and are rescued by two different crews - Grace aboard The Nocturne, captained by a mysterious masked vampire, and Connor aboard The Diablo, a notorious pirate ship under the command of the flamboyant Molucco Wrathe. So begins an adventure story which really does have everything - sword fights between rock 'n' roll pirates akin to Pirates of the Caribbean; a brewing Twilight-esque romance between Grace and the young, blue-eyed vampire Lorcan Furey, and chilling memorable villains that would rival any Voldemort.Thrilling, fun and addictive. Makes you want to join the crew and start singing a shanty! - Jen

Sisters Red: v. 1
(Paperback)
Jackson Pearce
Little Red Riding Hood is one of my all time favourite fairy tales, so when I discovered Sisters Red I had high hopes; fortunately, I wasn't disappointed. What I loved most about Sisters Red is that it has its roots in the original version of the Red Riding story, where the wolf was in fact a werewolf, and was meant as a cautionary tale for young women to avoid the attentions of strange men. Jackson Pearce’s version is smart, slick, shocking and brutal, with shades of Angela Carter in its storytelling. The heroines, Scarlet and Rose, are strong and independent, forced to grow up in a brutal world that exists unseen but side by side with the everyday, and the werewolves of that world are first and foremost predators that care only for blood, and have no wish to play the hero. - Neil
