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.

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

Monsters of Men
(Paperback)
Patrick Ness
Todd Hewitt is the last boy in Prentistown. A town inhabited only by men whose thoughts create a cacophony of Noise from which there is no respite. There are no such things as secrets and Todd has been kept ignorant to protect his innocence. When he senses something in the woods he discovers silence and its source a girl, Viola. They will embark on a journey that will not only take them from Prentistown but towards adulthood. Todd is our hero but a fallible one. He is truly courageous but you will question his actions. In a world where everyone believes that they are fighting for a just cause, Viola and Todd try to survive and do the right thing. But when everyone has their own truths, what is the right thing? Their affection for one another will be used to control them and Viola, through love will make a decision that will threaten their future. Powerful, moving and beautifully written, this is a story about war that is anti-war, that shows but doesn't judge and ultimately allows for hope when there appears to be none. - Sam
