Heir of Fire

Violet and the Pearl of the Orient

wbd2Violet Remy-Robinson is a super-sleuth in the making. When the Count and Countess Duplicitous and their ghastly daughter Isabella move in to a neighbouring house, Violet is sure there is something strange about them but she can’t quite put her finger on it. Then her eccentric, but lovely neighbour, Dee Dee Derota, has a precious jewel stolen. Could the new family be to blame? Violet is on the case to uncover the truth… So begins Harriet Whitehorn’s quirky and fun tale with an intriguing detective story at its heart.

Simon and Schuster are giving away 10 copies of Violet and the Pearl of the Orient.

Skulduggery Pleasant

wdb3The War of the Sanctuaries has been won, but it was not without its casualties. Following the loss of Valkyrie Cain, Skulduggery Pleasant must use any and all means to track down and stop Darquesse before she turns the world into a charred, lifeless cinder.

And not everyone gets out of here alive…

To celebrate the final book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series – The Dying of the Light – HarperCollins are giving away 10 Skulduggery Pleasant goody packs.

Dragons at Crumbling Castle

wbd4Aged seventeen, Terry Pratchett began work as a journalist for the Bucks Free Press. As well as covering news articles, he began writing short stories under the pseudonym ‘Uncle Jim’; as he later recalled, ‘Nobody wanted to do the children’s corner so I volunteered. I would do little children’s stories, one-offs and running narratives.’ Published together for the first time with over a hundred full-page black-and-white illustrations from Mark Beech, Dragons at Crumbling Castle is a book to make children laugh and introduce them to the wit and magic of Terry Pratchett.

Publishers Random House are giving away 5 hardback copies of Dragons at Crumbling Castle.

The Impossible Knife of Memory

wbd5Hayley is struggling – struggling to make sure her ex-army dad shows up to work, struggling to avoid her stepmother, struggling to forget the past, struggling not to fall in love with Finn, who really seems to get her. But some memories run too deep, and soon the cracks start to show . . .

Scholastic have three copies of Laurie Halse Anderson’s The Impossible Knife of Memory up for grabs.

Afterworlds

wbd6Darcy writes the words. Lizzie lives them. Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends, she wonders whether she’s made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other writers who take her under their wings . . . At the same time, Afterworlds, Darcy’s gripping thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the ‘Afterworld’ to survive a terrorist attack, starts to unfold . . .

Simon & Schuster are giving away 5 copies.
