Dark, powerful and heartbreaking, Children Of The Furnace compels with a uniquely stunning world and one of the greatest characters you’ll ever be afraid for …
TRUTH DIED IN THE FIRES. ONLY THROUGH COURAGE CAN IT BE BORN AGAIN.
Under the iron rule of the Revelayshun, one boy discovers the truth… ‘Ty promised my ma he’d bring me up right. Bring him up to hear the rhythm beat, she said, and to feel the heartsblood warm. Not Strong – not in their way – but strong in the ways of the heart.’ When the Revelayshun murders his pa, Wil discovers through savage inquisition that he’s marked as a Heater, one of the old-time heretics who burned up the world. But Wil holds the key to a secret. Sekkerland’s Shame, the Atrocity, is a great lie – and the Revelayshun will use fire, blood and death to hide the truth. "Amazing. Vivid and fascinating… nuanced and complex. An engrossing novel that changes the way you see the world." Caitlin Lyle Farley, Readers' Favorite, 5 star review "A compelling plot and great writing. Wil is incredibly sympathetic and Jace is a brilliantly ambivalent character." Roisin Heycock, former Publishing Director, Quercus Children's Books

DEATH DANCERS COMING SOON
There is only Shame… or Death. Some choices rip people apart. Two sisters. Each faced with an impossible choice. Sendra: obedient, beautiful and traditionalist. Shot down in the wilderness, she's drawn against her deepest beliefs to a reckless young barbarian warrior. A warrior whose destiny is to destroy everything and everyone she loves. Kali: wild, wilful and passionate. She must choose between revealing that she loves a Necro boy who’s been condemned as a traitor – and face a shame that will cut her off from her family forever. Or watch him die. Kali and Sendra each face a desperate fight for love and justice – but first they must understand that the prize is worth fighting for.
Her luxury boat party meets... a killer storm; a search and rescue that flies over her exact location again and again – but can’t find her; a derelict ocean liner that becomes a battleground for inhuman warriors; and internet streaming shows that wouldn’t be allowed anywhere on earth.
Where is she?
And where’s the way home?
Angel survives shipwreck, predatory fish and DNA-sampling pirates. She thinks she’s found a haven with extraordinary CEO Tosswill on elite Paratlantis.
But Tosswill has ransomed her: why?
What has she got, that he needs? Ripper’s scary and unpredictable. He’s an underdog from the Megacity, Mudrat hero in the Rapture, ready to fight to the death for the chance of a life on the Off-Islands. Angel knows she can’t trust him, but an alliance with Ripper might be her only chance.
WHEN YOU'RE AN ECHO OF WHO YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE... EVEN YOUR NAME ISN'T YOUR OWN
His family’s messed up: Dad’s a cardigan-wearing compromiser, Mum’s favourite child is her company, and his brother’s a psycho - but at least they’re his. Or so he thinks. When the Devil’s Down biostorage system crashes, Roby finds out his whole life is a lie. He’s been living a drugged-up prison sentence through someone else’s eyes, an Echo of the person he thought he was. In the real world he doesn’t exist - and now it turns out someone wants it to stay that way. He’s living evidence of a shocking secret, and someone's trying to make sure he doesn’t live for long. In this scary new world the first thing Roby needs to do is decide who he can trust – and who he can’t. Until then, all he can do is run. And remember: his name now is Rafe.
