              In June 2011, when Silvermay was published, the 70,000+ fans of James Moloney's Book of Lies series rejoiced as they were given the opportunity to return to this wondrous and magical world. And then, just a few short months later, the readers of insideadog.com.au (managed and run... by the State Library of Victoria) awarded Silvermay the 2011 Gold Inky Award for best Australian teenage literature. The first in a new series, SIlvermay followed the story of a young sixteen-year-old girl, drawn to two desperate strangers - Tamlyn and Nerigold - as they arrived in her village. When dark forces threatened the couple and their young baby, Lucien, Silvermay became swept up in the family's escape. As Nerigold grew weaker however, baby Lucien was entrusted to Silvermay's care and she discovered the startling horror of what he might become. At the same time, she also struggled to suppress her growing feelings for Tamlyn. But can Tamlyn be trusted? And can Lucien be spared his fate? In Tamlyn we continue this adventure that ended 'on a cliffhanger' in Silvermay and venture closer to finding out the answers to these questions.

              Matt Cooper is twelve, and spends quite a bit of his time honing his magic skills and tricks. He doesn't realise that his great-grandfather, Mattheus Coperneau, was a professional magician whose career came to a disastrous end when a trick he performed backfired spectacularly. Wh...at neither Matt nor Mattheus realise is that there's an even older story behind the failure of Mattheus's 'disappearing trick' and a tragic romance is at the bottom of it all. In 1889, Joachim Tannislaus is a young scientist with a stellar career in front of him and half the girls in the small principality of Montilagus pursuing him. But Joachim loves Princess Agneta, who is also studying at the university. When he and Agneta are caught in an embrace, he is thrown into prison to perish, but Agneta gives him a dose of the potion they have been working on in secret, little knowing that the elixir has given him the possibility of eternal life. When Matt and his family return to Montilagus to clear his great-grandfather's name, Matt discovers that there's more to magic than meets the eye.

              In the bestselling tradition of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Wonder. Jacob O'Leary is entering his final Year 12 term at school in Palmerston, a country town struggling to survive in a changing world. He also has Cerebral Palsy. Thanks to the tireless eff...orts of his mother he can walk unaided, but people are nonetheless aware of his disabilities. This is not what is really bugging Jacob, though. It's girls. He's never even kissed one. He sets out to address this and it seems that his secret love, Amy, is eager for a relationship too. The small town of Palmerston is, however, being stalked by a dark presence: someone is mutilating animals. First a horse, then a pig living on the school's farm. Two Muslim families have recently arrived in town to help the local abattoir produce Halal meat. When a Muslim boy, Mahmoud, is accused of killing the pig, Jacob takes it on himself to prove the whole town wrong. But Jacob has never even spoken to Mahmoud, so what is he up to? Is he just being politically correct to please his teachers and new girl, Chloe? Or is this really about Jacob establishing an identity for himself and breaking away from the love and sympathy that has both nurtured and held him back? Jacob makes a good fist of being a sleuth, but in a small-minded town battling its own demons, what will his discoveries cost him with Amy, and will his need for protective friendships pull him back into the safe life he's grown so accustomed to? Ages: 13+
