The Coming of the Fairies Young Adult
View Niko Silvester's bio page

It is the summer of 1941, and fifteen-year-old Morgan Reilly has just moved to Newfoundland from New York to be with her father, an officer in the US Army stationed in St. John’s. Morgan adores fairies and has a collection of Victorian children’s books, so when she meets John O’Brien, nephew of her new landlords, she is intrigued by his story of being taken by the Good People when he was a child.

As the war escalates, Morgan and John are sent to the small community of Ferryland to stay with John's grandparents. It was there that John says the Good People kidnapped him, and soon after they arrive, he becomes withdrawn and strange. Morgan is more concerned with her own problems to worry too much about John--her father may soon be called into active duty if the US enters the war, and her brother has run away to England and joined the Royal Air Force.

Then Morgan has a fairy encounter of her own and it is up to John to find and rescue her. The Good People of Newfoundland are not the pretty winged beings of Victorian picture books, and Morgan is in real danger.

The Coming of the Fairies is a short YA/middle grade urban fantasy historical novel.

The Undying Apathy Of Imogen Shroud Young Adult
View Ben White's bio page

"Gloomy girl fights depression, zombies."

Imogen Shroud is the unhappiest seventeen year-old in the whole entire world. The world offers her nothing, and so she offers nothing to the world. Given the choice she'd just lie in bed all day every day, a stack of books beside her, locked safely away from the uncaring outside.

But reality intrudes on even the most sedentary of lifestyles. Imogen is forced out of her room and halfway across the city, to the ultra-modern Phoenix Convention Centre and the comic convention it hosts. On its own this would be bad enough, but strange weather is blowing in, bringing with it death--and undeath.

Dealing with depression is difficult. So is dealing with the undead. Dealing with both? Well, sometimes unlife can surprise you...

Puttypaw Young Adult
View Tom North's bio page

Toby has closed himself off from the world. Since the accident which killed his mother he has spent each day simply waiting to return to bed, and sleep. But one night Toby is woken by a gigantic, talking cat that tears his bedroom apart, searching for a missing ‘mousey’. And from that moment on his life is only going to get stranger.

'Puttypaw' is a story about cats. (One of which specialises in casual malevolence and unspeakable sarcasm.) It is also about gods and their slippers. It is about growing up and friendship and loss and adventure. It is about rats and blood. It is about mirrors and deserts and fighting. It is about death – but then all stories are, in the end. Most of all, though, it is about Toby and his dreams.

View Cindi Lee's bio page


Her academy’s community service program brought them together. Time and tide drew them apart. From the day Maria met Emma, she knew the little girl was different. An orphaned seven-year-old whose unnatural ability to recreate the past was even more frightening than the story of her family’s death. Obligatory time at White Crest Hospital soon became treasured time as ninth grader Maria Jaghai became friends with the child who spoke of a living dead brother.

But with the next school year looming and her own less-than-ordinary problems to worry about, Maria Jaghai moved on with her life and didn’t look back upon the child whose name she allowed to become a distant memory. Now as a high school senior, the present is Maria's only concern as she desperately plots to prevent an arranged marriage her parents are planning before she graduates. A new and pleasant distraction comes in the form of a handsome student named Alan, but behind his smiles lie dark intent, and soon the truths about the forgotten little girl and the horrors that haunt the child’s family come crashing down upon her. Maria will quickly learn that you cannot forsake your friends; you cannot control your fate; and you cannot escape the ghosts of your past. To heal the past and secure the future, Maria must leave the world she knows for a world of magic, wars, and fate science. The strange ride into fate begins with this first installment of “The Mirrors of Fate Trilogy".

Neenah: The Dark Journey Young Adult
View Brinksman's bio page

The story begins with Neenah, resting atop a grassy knoll, watching a rat (Xerk) being chased by a mangy cat. On impulse, Neenah extracts a crossbow from her bag and fires a rubber-tipped arrow into the air, hitting the cat directly on the nose. Her actions save the rat, but in doing so unleash a nightmare she is not sure of escaping. To her horror and amazement, within seconds of finding the rat hidden in an old syrup tin, she soon discovers that she can communicate, quite fluently with the rat – and vice versa. The rat explains to her that of course she can communicate with rodents – she is one herself!
Disbelieving, gingerly Neenah produces a mirror and to her shock and horror discovers that the rat is telling the truth, although she still believes deep down that she is a girl – a human girl.

So begins an extraordinary journey for Neenah accompanied by Xerk, in a strange and wonderful land; a land where time is slipping quickly through Neenah’s hands…

Tattooed to Neenah’s shaven head, is a picture of the sun, and upon meeting a wooden giant by the name of Stiltman, she is given a key – a key that will open a book for her and reveal all. Unfortunately for Neenah, time is of the essence. Should her hair grow back before she discovers the book, she will be trapped in this strange land forever. To add to her woes, a bounty hunter named Scythe, a skeleton-type creature mounted atop a gigantic wingless bird, is hunting her relentlessly. Once human himself, he must bring Neenah back to the Darkness.

Unbeknown to Scythe, he also is being hunted, but by a more ruthless and dangerous, reptilian creature called Retribution. She suspects Scythe of never fully discarding his human traits and of not being fully loyal to the Darkness.

After many dangerous missions, finally, Neenah discovers the book but is confronted, face to face with Scythe who has amassed the entire cat population to help defeat Neenah and Xerk. Watching craftily form the back, is Retribution, waiting for Scythe to be weakened before making her move in this last of all great battles.

Critically wounded by Neenah, it is left to the one-time human Scythe - by a cruel twist of fate - to save the life of the little girl from the horrendous Retribution.

“Amazingly dark and scary, best-selling crime writer, Sam Millar (On The Brinks) has created a unique landscape and peopled it with bizarre and original characters. Adults and children will love this extraordinary tale of tails.”

Drum Dance Young Adult
View Aurorawolf's bio page

Drum Dance is a young-adult novel set in the late 1930s at Gjoa Haven, in Canada’s central Arctic, near the area where Sir John Franklin and his crew froze to death searching for the Northwest Passage.

Seventeen-year-old David Jansson agrees to spend two years at an isolated fur-trading post with his estranged father, Per Jansson, manager for the Hudson’s Bay Company. David hasn't seen his dad for five years, and the hot-tempered man he finds is not the gentle father he remembers—he has become a domineering, abusive alcoholic.

David soon regrets his decision, but tries to make the best of a bad situation and follow his dad's strict orders: absolutely no contact with the beautiful half-blood girl, Nipesha, nor the intimidating shaman, Naigo, who ignores Inuit tradition and wants the white youth for his apprentice—a creepy old man who appears in David's room in the middle of the night, then vanishes before his eyes. David's emotions are torn while denying his own paranormal abilities and blaming Per for his mother's death.

To escape an intolerable situation in a land where escape is nearly impossible, David stubbornly risks his life by underestimating the weather—and his own heart—when he ignores a basic truth: The Arctic seldom gives a man a second chance.

"Birch bark canoes were made for rivers and lakes," Per said, "not the icy waters of the Arctic. Fall out of this, you'll freeze before you drown!"

"Booksellers, librarians and readers are always saying they're looking for something original to read. Well, they need look no further than Drum Dance, a refreshing YA novel with an accomplished voice and a strong sense of place." ~ Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of The Twin's Daughter

Sometimes there is a gun in her hand, and she’s shooting the people she loves the most. The only way to stop the dreams is to drown them in liquor.

Azazel can hardly concentrate on anything else. Not the library located in the Sol Solis School. Not the secrets about Jason’s origins they need to discover there. Not the prom. Not the fact that she can’t have orgasms.

Azazel feels like black water is closing over her head. And she doesn’t know if she can breathe anymore.

I pushed a dusty chest that was on the "unfinished basement" of the house my mom and I just moved in. To my surprise a drawing was underneath. It was a circle with three triangles inside.

Each triangle had an angel holding a cross. The weirdest thing of all was the fact that the red drawing smelled like fresh blood.

I did not think twice and I erased it with a broom until it was nothing left to see.

Little did I know that a vampire named Nathan Jones was trapped underneath the drawing and thanks to me he was free to kill again.

When the king pays dearly for his mistake, the nine-year-old Princess Arvelina is elevated to a position she could not have anticipated. While the Meorian army marches toward Tirgan to destroy the Book of Light as originally planned by Alvard, it seems all hope is lost to stop a war between the two nations as the Tirganians have begun moving their troops in response. Disobedience, although done out of best intentions, throws the conflict into an event of extortion of life and death, leaving the Tirganian king, Ez-Keramon, to decide the fate of a dearly beloved young man. Without intervention by the Lord of the heavens the two nations face the judgment of a blood bath. Individual character qualities and actions bring to each their own penalties and rewards, as well as the effect they have on others.
