Explanation of the Book:

A thrilling new series soars above the competition and redefines middle-grade fantasy fiction for a new generation! The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy -- a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice. Five dragonets are collected to fulfill the prophecy, raised in a hidden cave and enlisted, against their will, to end the terrible war. But not every dragonet wants a destiny. And when the select five escape their underground captors to look for their original homes, what has been unleashed on the dragon world may be far more than the revolutionary planners intended . . .

Explanation of the Book:

“If there has been a better mystery-suspense story written in this decade, I can’t think of it . . . transcend[s] the genre.” —Stephen King “A cruel and cunning mystery . . . Plot-twisting, mind-altering and monstrously funny.” —The New York Times Book Review The latest gripping psychological thriller from Edgar Award winner Alex Marwood When a child goes missing at an opulent house party, it makes international news. But what really happened behind those closed doors? Twelve years ago, Mila Jackson’s three-year-old half-sister Coco disappeared during their father’s fiftieth birthday celebration, leaving behind her identical twin Ruby as the only witness. The girls’ father, Sean, was wealthy and influential, as were the friends gathered at their seaside vacation home for the weekend’s debauchery. The case ignited a media frenzy and forever changed the lives of everyone involved. Now, Sean Jackson is dead, and the people who were present that terrible night must gather once more for a funeral that will reveal that the secrets of the past can never stay hidden. Perfectly paced all the way through its devastating conclusion, The Darkest Secret is one that fans of Gillian Flynn and Liane Moriarty won’t be able to put down.

Explanation of the Book:

Just when Casey thinks her foster care duties are done, she's asked to look after Sam, a troubled nine-year-old with a violent streak who drove his previous guardians to release him of their care. It soon unfolds, however, that this is no simple case. Determined to get to the root of Sam's behaviour, Casey is committed to uncover his mysterious past only to find out something far darker than she ever imagined... Having recently said goodbye to their last foster child, Miller, the Watson family are taking a bit of a break. But it's while Casey is having fun catching up with her friends that she receives a call from her new link worker. Social services are desperately trying to find a settled home for nine-year-old Sam, who has Autism and some serious behavioural problems. Removed from his mother less than a week ago, Sam has been staying with respite carers. But with two young children of their own, they now find themselves unable to hold on to the little boy as he is bullying them relentlessly. It's not an isolated situation, either. Apparently Sam's own siblings begged not to be placed with their older brother - they were both adamant that they were too afraid of him. The Watsons agree to accommodate Sam, who, despite his tiny stature, turns out to be quite the whirlwind - destroying anything and everything in his path. In addition to the outward behaviours, it quickly becomes evident that there is a much darker past that has blighted the boy's life. As Casey tries to get to the bottom of it, she discovers there are no files on Sam; only the testament of his previous neighbour. Thankfully, Mrs Gallagher is only too happy to help. And to talk. But it soon transpires that there is a great deal more to Sam's secret history...

Explanation of the Book:

Magic is the activation of codes of consciousness capable of collapsing time. These codes exist in all humans, in a field of energy and power called the super conscious, or the gold mind. This book is the New Spirituality, carrying the New Myth of Awakening and the Awakened. Because the Truth is this: You are wired for magic.Thriving is your natural state. And genius is in your bones. You've just been running your great godly power through a tiny, cramped, low-voltage energy management system that was never built to handle the demands of a genius giant like you. It's like trying to light up all of Los Angeles on a single generator. Hello lights off most of the time.Blindness. Stumbling around in the deep shadows thinking something is terribly wrong with your generator. There's nothing "wrong" with it. It just needs to be replaced with a Universal Power Management System, which you already have all wired up, and connected, and in place, you just gotta be told where the switch is.And then? Magic is inevitable. And I do mean magic: What any typical human would consider "impossible," "miraculous" and totally inexplicable.You know, like the way a Neanderthal would feel about an iPhone. Because magic is not a mystery. It's a spiritual science. And I'm here to teach it to you.And why does the world need ANOTHER book on manifestation exactly? Yes, I've heard of a little, no-name piece of work called "The Secret." The one that's right up there with the BIBLE in terms of global sales and impact, and that's ALL ABOUT manifestation and features people WAY MORE POPULAR AND WELL-KNOWN than I, who are considered the world's EXPERTS on this very subject. So HOW EXACTLY do I expect to hold a candle to THAT? I'm so glad you asked. So just to kinda summarize your position (which is completely understandable by the way)...You're saying there are these spiritual giants roaming the land of manifestation......and who am I to go up against them. Do I have that right? Cool. So lemme tell you this story, maybe you've heard it. About David and Goliath? Where Goliath was the giant? Who was terrorizing the Israelites? And every day he'd lumber his huge, terrifying self out onto the battlefield and dare someone to face him in single combat. But hello. He was a fucking giant. And they were all "just humans."So even Saul, the KING of Israel, was like, hmmmm. No thanks. So this went on for forty days. Then one day a little shepherd boy named David, who was bringing food to his brothers, heard about all this hullabaloo, and was like, Jesus Christ (well, not yet. This is still Old Testament times, but you get the point). I'll do it. Saul offered David his armor, and David was like, Hey, thanks, Saul, King of Israel who's supposed to be doing this but isn't because you're too scared. I'm cool. I have my SLINGSHOT. And he went out into the field, swung that fucker around, hit Goliath right in the center of his forehead (so, ummm, in this THIRD EYE), and down that great and terrifying giant went. And then a little later, that no-name shepherd boy became King. The subtitle of this book isn't called "Magic and the Takeover of Consciousness" for nothin'. I know what I'm up against. And I know exactly where to aim my shot. And I know that when you see that beautiful philosopher's stone of the truth of consciousness travel its most arresting arc through the air of spiritual intelligence and hit the giants of manifestation right in their third eye, (which is totally blind), your third eye will FLY OPEN and that.Will be the end of that.Because the truth there's a dirty secret no one's talking about in the world of spiritual transformation, self help and the way manifestation is being taught: None of it really works all that well and even the inner circle of spiritual gurus can't manifest on demand.I'm here to change that for you.

So why is he suddenly glued to Holly and almost hostile to Lauren? How can she trust him -- especially now that a series of nasty "accidents" makes Lauren realize that somebody wants her dead? This time, there's no place to run.

Explanation of the Book:

Qibli knows Darkstalker must be stopped. And he knows he could stop him -- if he had magic. With even a sliver of the ancient dragon's all-powerful scroll, Qibli could rewrite history the right way: end war forever; make every dragon happy; perhaps even cast a very small spell so that everyone would like him . . . Instead, as Darkstalker's dangerous influence spreads across Pyrrhia, entrancing or killing every dragon in the seven tribes, Qibli can only grasp the small animus objects he's borrowed from Turtle. With some clever thinking, Qibli's talons finally hold the power to make a difference. But prophecies are not easy to rewrite. Can Qibli be the magical force Pyrrhia needs, or will he be the one to bring Jade Mountain -- and his family, his friends, his whole world -- crashing down?
