The Eternal Ones by Kirsten MillerThe Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

Haven Moore has always known she's different: there are the talents that can't be explained; the knowledge of places she's never been; and then there are the visions that overwhelm her - terrifying visions of a life that ended tragically two decades earlier and more than a thousand miles away in New York City. The citizens of Haven's rural, highly religious community, believe that she's been possessed by a demon. But this is no demon: it's reincarnation. Haven journeys all the way to Manhattan in search of clues about her past life and a decades-old murder. One wrong move could lead her into the clutches of the sinister villain at the center of a conspiracy much larger than she could have ever imagined. But if she makes the right choices, Haven will find the answers she's been seeking her entire life. This is an epic and thrilling romance set in the snake-handling churches of Appalachia, the dusty ruins of ancient Rome, and the grand mansions of Manhattan. The Eternal Ones tells the story of the first battle in a war between undying love and eternal evil. From Amazon UK


I Am Number Four by Pittacus LoreI Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

In the beginning we were nine. We left when we were very young, almost too young to remember. Almost. And now... Three are gone. We are here to keep our race alive, which was almost entirely obliterated. We’re just trying to survive. Six are left. But we are hunted, and the hunters won’t stop until they’ve killed us all. They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. I am Number Four. I know that I am next. From Amazon UK


Troy High by Shanna NorrisTroy High by Shanna Norris

Homer's classic tale of love and revenge is retold for the teen audience in TROY HIGH. Narrated by Cassie (Cassandra), this story follows the Trojans and Spartans as they declare war on the football field to end their high school rivalry once and for all. After Elena (Helen of Troy) transfers to Troy High and falls madly in love with Cassie's brother Perry (Paris), her ex Lucas (Meneleas) and his brother Greg Mennon (Agamemnon) want to settle the score. The schools pull pranks on each other which culminate in the annual Homecoming game and dance. The Trojans are led by star quarterback Hunter (Hector) and the Spartans have a secret weapon in Ackley (Achilles). But it's not all football and scheming as Cassie is forced to choose between the boy she loves (Greg, a Spartan) and loyalty to her school. A fast paced, fun, contemporary interpretation of the Troy myth by the author of SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT. From Amazon UK

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Bind-Up 1Buffy the Vampire Slayer Bind-Up 1

As long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world, to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers...
Night of the Living Rerun ~ As if real life wasn't already overflowing with vampire-staking, Buffy is now dreaming about slaying! Night after night, it's the same thing… What could it mean? When Xander and Giles start acting like they have ancient alter egos, Buffy begins to realise what's going on. Can Buffy prevent the Master from escaping his supernatural prison before Sunnydale becomes history!
Coyote Moon ~ The seedy carnival looks like just the thing to give Buffy and her friends, Xander and Willow, a break from staking bloodsuckers. Some greasy food, a few cheap thrills - what more could a Slayer ask for? But then Buffy senses something evil behind this carnival. Could it be connected to the corpses that are turning up around Sunnydale. Can Buffy find out what's going on in time to save her friends? Or has the Slayer become the prey?
Portal of Time ~ The Master, Buffy's nemesis, may be gone, but he is by no means forgotten. One of his devotees has set out to alter the past, killing off Slayers in order to change the future. With the Slayer line extinguished, there will be no Buffy. And without Buffy, no one will be able to prevent him as he resurrects The Master. Having opened a portal through time he is about to send his minions into the past to murder the most influential Slayers in history. Buffy is forced to follow them through the portal in a race against time and evil. But the problem is… you can't change the past without altering the present...

Lies by Michael GrantLies by Michael Grant

It happens in one night: a girl who died now walks among the living, Zil and the Human Crew set fire to Perdido Beach, and amid the flames and smoke, Sam sees the figure of the boy he fears the most - Drake. But Sam and Caine defeated him along with the Darkness - or so they thought. As Perdido Beach burns, battles rage: Astrid against the Town Council; the Human Crew versus the mutants; and Sam against Drake. And the prophetess Orsay and her companion, Nerezza, are preaching that death will set them all free. As life in the FAYZ becomes more desperate, no one knows who they can trust. From Amazon UK

Before I Fall by Lauren OliverBefore I Fall by Lauren Oliver

They say ‘live every day as if it’s your last’ – but you never actually think it’s going to be. At least I didn’t.

The thing is, you don’t get to know when it happens. You don’t remember to tell your family that you love them or – in my case – remember to say goodbye to them at all.

But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you’d want to change...?
