‘A page-turner rich in historical detail and generous in emotional justice … A fascinating read.’ – Books + Publishing

‘This is the best book I have read in a long time, if not ever. Karen Brooks is committed to delivering an authentic, historical read that is still engaging … It was a book where I didn’t want to get off the train, I didn’t want to sleep, I didn’t want lunch break to end, I didn’t want to go out because I just HAD to keep reading.’ – Goodreads

An unforgettable tale of love, treachery and ale in medieval England.

It had been Mother’s secret and mine, one passed down through the de Winter women for generations. I would ensure it was kept that way, until I was ready to pass it on.

When Anneke Sheldrake is forced to find a way to support her family after her father is lost at sea, she turns to the business by which her mother’s family once prospered: brewing ale.
Armed with her Dutch mother’s recipes and a belief that anything would be better than the life her vindictive cousin has offered her, she makes a deal with her father’s aristocratic employer: Anneke has six months to succeed or not only will she lose the house but her family as well.

Through her enterprise and determination, she inadvertently earns herself a deadly enemy. Threatened and held in contempt by those she once called friends, Anneke nonetheless thrives. But on the tail of success, tragedy follows and those closest to her pay the greatest price for her daring.
Ashamed, grieving, and bearing a terrible secret, Anneke flees to London, determined to forge her own destiny. Will she be able to escape her past, and those whose only desire is to see her fail?

A compelling insight into the brewer’s craft, the strength of women, and the myriad forms love can take.

In the exhilarating conclusion to Disruption, Maggie must do whatever it takes to show the world the truth. And the price for her quest? Everything.

How do you live with yourself when you’ve deceived the one you love?
How do you move on when the person you’ve been fighting to save betrays you?
Two years ago, Maggie Stevens began the hunt.
Four weeks ago, Maggie’s world fell apart, when she finally found what she’d been looking for. And when Quentin, who had blindly trusted her, unravelled her web of lies.

Now, Maggie lives in the dark. But she’s not about to stay there. Not when she still has to bring M-Corp down.

Not when there is still a chance she could win him back.

by Trudi Canavan

Listen to an excerpt here

No.1 Bestselling Author of the acclaimed Black Magician Trilory
“Her [Canavan’s] magical world is brilliantly conceived.” – RT Book Reviews on The Magician’s Apprentice
“Adventurous and accessible for new and old readers alike.” – Publishers Weekly on The Ambassador’s Mission

In a world where an industrial revolution is powered by magic, Tyen, a student of archaeology, unearths a sentient book called Vella. Once a young sorcerer-bookbinder, Vella was transformed into a useful tool by one of the greatest sorcerers of history. Since then she has been collecting information, including a vital clue to the disaster Tyen’s world faces.

Elsewhere, in a land ruled by the priests, Rielle the dyer’s daughter has been taught that to use magic is to steal from the Angels. Yet she knows she has a talent for it, and that there is a corrupter in the city willing to teach her how to use it – should she dare to risk the Angels’ wrath.

But not everything is as Tyen and Rielle have been raised to believe. Not the nature of magic, nor the laws of their lands. Not even the people they trust.

by Jessica Shirvington

Listen to a short excerpt here

What if an app could help you identify your perfect match? What if this technology controlled your life? What if it could be used against you and the ones you love? For the last nine years, Mercer Corporation’s M-bands have been a required part of everyday life. An evolution of the Smartphone, these bracelets promised to make life easier. Instead, they simply control it. For the last two years, eighteen-year-old Maggie Stevens has only had one goal: to find her father and bring him home. Taken away for rehabilitation following negative readings on his M-band, her father’s disappearance has shattered her family. And with no word from her father since, Maggie is determined to uncover and expose the sinister reality of the Corporation.

Enter Quentin Mercer, heir to the M-Corp Empire. Quentin has become the key to Maggie’s scheme to bring down M-Corp. As the pieces of her dangerous plan fall into place, Maggie realises he isn’t who she thought he was. Will she hold her nerve, or will his involvement destroy everything she’s fought for? In a world full of broken promises, the ones Maggie must keep could be the most heartbreaking.
