              Jamie Reign was born twelve years ago, on the first day of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. This supposedly auspicious start in life hasn't been much use to him, living a loveless existence with his abusive father, Hector, on a salvage boat. Jamie's mother Mayling died on the day ...he was born. When Jamie inadvertently summons some fiery orbs from the air to tackle some local bullies, he doesn't understand that he has tapped into The Way, the universal energy source, and in doing so he sets off a chain of events with unforeseen consequences. Whisked away by the mysterious Mr Fan to the Chia Wu, a school for students with special abilities, Jamie is taken under the wing of the legendary Kung Fu Master Wu. It is believed by Master Wu and his staff that Jamie is the Last Spirit Warrior, and as such his life's purpose is to right the dreadful wrongs (climatic and political) taking place in the world. But not everyone believes so - and Jamie himself has doubts. What use is a Spirit Warrior who is hopeless at Kung Fu? Ages: 8+

              Things are finally looking up for 18-year-old Josie Browning. Her hot new boyfriend James can't keep his hands off her, she's moved into a share house in the city and - fresh from her roller-coaster ride at the now defunct Sash magazine - she's scored a coveted job as indi websit...e's junior writer. Life wasn't meant to go that smoothly, so when indi's features editor Sia announces she's pregnant and needs time off, the pressure is on for Josie to prove to her editor Liani that she's got what it takes to be a real journalist. Loved-up Josie is also on a mission to lose her virginity to James (if they can get past second base without laughing, arguing, being interrupted or freaking out!). And if that's not enough, Josie's battling with bong-smoking room-mates, mag-girl frenemies and confusing feelings for jaded travel writer, Alex. High on the fabulous perks from her new job at indi, Josie's life seems pretty close to perfect - even though she still hasn't mastered her hair straightener. But when Josie is suspected of stealing from one of magazines' rising queen bees at a luxurious media junket, she is thrown into a mystery of lies, theft and deceit that threatens to ruin her reputation, love life and career forever. Does Josie have what it takes to be a real journalist Will she be able to prove her innocence without losing her job at indi (and her mind) Or will the bitchy magazine girls win once and for all And what will Josie do when Alex comes to her rescue when no-one else does, not even James...

              NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIESDear Reader,If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I am sorry to say, are filled with b...ad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and this one may be the worst of them all. If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain, and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this book will probably fill you with despair. I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly endure this miserable story.With all due respect,Lemony Snicket

But when Ben's father loses their ancestral home to pay a gambling debt, Ben re...luctantly joins his father in a desperate venture to win back their home, capturing enemy trading ships off the west Australian coast. While at sea, Ben must face not just the giant waves of the Southern Ocean but also Dutch guns, as well as unexpected treachery as he realises that his almost-unknown father will sacrifice even his son to make his fortune.

She lives with an elderly lady named Dot in a room hidden behind a wall. In a crowded, industrial city, where everyone looks out for t...hemselves, Cora and Dot hunt and sell rare and exotic things - apple seeds, silver forks, shoe polish. Until one day, Cora finds a few words scribbled on a piece of paper. She takes it home and says the words aloud. Then two plump, hairy fairies named Tick and Tock crash land in her path to warn her that she is in terrible danger. Cora has unknowingly summoned a sinister creature known as a Jinx. Jinxes eat magical beings and once they have a scent, they never forget it. But Cora isn't a magical being . . . is she? Quickly, Cora is thrown headfirst into a world filled with magic, necromancers, shape-shifters, enchantresses, fairies, nightwalkers, witches and giants. Richly illustrated throughout by Sharon O'Connor, this is a very exciting magical new series from the talented author of Whimsy & Woe.

              Following on from OPHELIA, QUEEN OF DENMARK (July 2015), this is the third title in the series for young people that focuses on the reinterpretation of Shakespeare's classic and enduring plays. 'I didn't mean to do it'. Annie is not a witch, but when her mistress Lady Macbeth cal...ls for a potion to 'stiffen Macbeth's sinews', Annie is caught up in plots that lead to murder, kingship and betrayal. Annie must also not only choose between Rab the Blacksmith and Murdoch, Thane of Greymouth, but discover where her loyalty lies. A searing story of passion, betrayal, battles and love, this is Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' stripped of superstition, and its power and beauty refined into fewer words where good balances the evil and there is a happy ending - for some. Ages: 10+
