The Dark Citadel by Jane Dougherty


Evil is slouching into Providence. Will the awakening memories of a rebellious runaway be enough to send the demon back into the shadows? Blurb: Fifteen-year-old Deborah is angry and bitter. Rebelling against an arranged marriage to an idiot, she flees the oppression of Providence’s religious Elders to search for her exiled mother, the legendary Green Woman. Zachariah, dark, brooding and unhappy crosses Deborah’s path as they both plot escape from the House of Correction. Dislike is instant and mutual, and Zachariah blunders off alone to seek the Green Woman’s magical Garden. In the desert wasteland, Jonah, the dog boy takes Deborah’s hand, first as a friend and guide, then as something more. Abaddon, Lord of Hell is waiting to crush the green magic that will destroy his realm on earth. Deborah is discovering love and the mysterious power of her memories, but will this be enough to defeat the demon and the Elder’s regime, and dispel the shadows cast by the Dark Citadel?

The Hunter, Grayleer by Alex Billedeaux


There are twisted creatures, hiding in the darkness. In the deep woods, the abandoned barn, the back alley, the empty apartment next door. Some control minds or weather, others dabble with lost souls and possession. They have preyed on the unwary for centuries and are only satiated by the next victim they take. But they have not gone unnoticed. There are Hunters, scouring just at the edge of the light. Michael Grayleer is one such man. Shotgun in hand, Grayleer tracks down whispers of attacks, finding the perpetrator and removing them before they can hurt anyone else. It is not so cut and dry these days, especially since Grayleer’s prey has found a new orchestrator. Grayleer is not the Hunter anymore. They are being sicked on him, one by one, until he either dies or turns to find protection at the hands of men that he would have never put trust in before. As he watches his new friends slowly lose themselves into the ruthless kills that his job requires, he is forced to wonder whether his Hunt is just – or even forgivable.

The Princelings of the East by Jemima Pett


The first book in the trilogy introduces us to our guinea pig heroes, Princelings Fred and George. Imagine them, if you will, scurrying around the castle using secret passages, carrying out scientific experiments that occasionally blow up in their faces and quaffing ale at their favourite tavern. But there is trouble in their world. They may not use much energy, but when they do, it is usually for important occasions. Energy draining to a halt to ruin the King’s Birthday celebrations is enough to send the King at Castle in the Marsh into a rage, and demand that everyone stop using it. George’s latest machine is destroyed; their world looks to be falling apart. So who better to go and solve this problem than the Princelings themselves? Leaving the security of their Castle is a big step into the unknown. They meet up with strangers – who to trust? Prince Lupin, so suave and sophisticated? The businessman, Hugo, smooth and wordly, with an air of deceit about him? The young barkeeper, Victor, always bustling around? And that’s just Fred’s problem, since George has been transported to another world, it seems, full of hustle, bustle and shining towers. Where, or when, is he? The Princelings of the East is a mystery “jam-packed with action and adventure” where time is of the essence. It’s suitable for good readers 11 and upwards, and is a complete story in its own right.
