A slow week this week. But there may be a few more next time as I intend to treat myself for passing my exams and getting into the university that I wanted. It’s been a nerve wracking week!
The Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare
Magic is dangerous - but love is more dangerous still
When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray arrives in England during the reign of Queen Victoria, something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gas lit street. Friendless and hunted, Tessa seeks refuge with the Shadowhunters, a band of warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons. Drawn ever deeper into their world, she finds herself fascinated by - and torn between - two best friends and quickly realises that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
YAY!!! Thank you, Walker! I read this the afternoon it arrived: LOVE!
The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight - Jenny Valentine
“I didn’t choose to be him. I didn’t pick Cassiel Roadnight out of a line-up of possible people who looked just like me. I just let it happen. I just wanted it to be true. That’s all I did wrong, at the beginning.”
A fugitive teenager takes on the identity of another missing boy. But everyone has their secrets. Who will get to the truth first?
Thanks, Harper Collins.
The Wings of Leo Spencer - Jerome Parisse
Fourteen year old Leo has found the most amazing present for his mum’s birthday. Unfortunately, someone has decided that he will not live to see it…
As he dies, Leo finds himself facing a terrifying choice, one that will impact his life - or death - forever.
But who wanted him dead in the first place? And why is he being targeted by an evil force? Even Geraldine - dead and loving every minute of it - has no clue as to what’s happening.
Leo’s search for the truth takes him to the most astonishing places, and presents him with a challenge even greater than dying: to protect his family and his best friend from a terrible fate…
But how do you do that if you can make no impression on the material world?
Thanks to Jerome for this. It sounds fantastic.
