Book Summary: A new vision of knights, dragons, and the fair maiden caught in between . . . Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high. Seraphina has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered. While a sinister plot to destroy the peace is uncovered, Seraphina struggles to protect the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life. Seraphina's tortuous journey to self-acceptance will make a magical, indelible impression on its readers.

Book Summary: Meet Tess, a brave new heroine from beloved epic fantasy author Rachel Hartman. In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You can't make a scene at your sister's wedding and break a relative's nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks on her boots and sets out on a journey across the Southlands, alone and pretending to be a boy. Where Tess is headed is a mystery, even to her. So when she runs into an old friend, it's a stroke of luck. This friend is a quigutl--a subspecies of dragon--who gives her both a purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the memories she's tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in more ways than one.

Book Summary: Bursting with wonder and delicate despair, Serrie Sullivan longs for the world, but she’s trapped, just like Dorothy in Oz. Serrie’s got a nasty secret. It’s festering inside her, because in the gothic Annapolis Valley, hey, that’s what you do — you never show and you never, ever tell. As she dashes from her wedding altar on the run of her life, ardently wanting to understand what has brought her to this moment, Serrie sweeps us up in an exhilarating and poignant journey from rural Nova Scotia to London bars, to strip clubs by the docks, through mental hospital wards and rehab centres, back to quiet verandahs and porch swings in serene Lupin Cove. Along the way we meet a delightful array of off-beat characters including Serrie’s best friends, Dearie and Elizabeth: Dearie, the anglicized Acadian who wants to go to New Orleans to find her Cajun relatives, and Elizabeth, who would like nothing better than to spend the rest of her life picking strawberries. Heave explores the joys and agonies of family, of what one generation inherits from the next, and of how past and present are inexorably linked. Memories weave through the book as Serrie searches for equanimity in a life that intoxicates her with its beauty as it knocks her to her knees.

Book Summary: In the dazzling conclusion to the Greystone Secrets series from New York Times bestselling author Margaret Peterson Haddix, the Greystones and their doubles, the Gustanos, must team up to save the alternate world—before both worlds are lost. All secrets are revealed in this page-turning, suspenseful story that shows the importance of teamwork, telling your story, and taking action when it matters most. As book three of the Greystone Secrets series opens, the Greystone kids have their mother back from the evil alternate world, and so does their friend Natalie. But no one believes the danger is past. Then mysterious coins begin falling from unexpected places. They are inscribed with codes that look just like what the Greystones’ father was working on before he died. And with the right touch, those symbols transform into words: PLEASE LISTEN. And FIND US, SEE US, HELP US. . . . The coins are messengers, telling the Greystones and their allies that their friends in the alternate world are under attack—and that the cruel, mind-controlling forces are now invading the better world, too. After another spinning, sliding journey across worlds, the Greystone kids must solve mysteries that have haunted them since the beginning: what happened when the Gustanos were kidnapped, what created the alternate world, and how a group of mismatched kids can triumph once and for all against an evil force that seems to have total control.

Book Summary: I have travelled for more than 20 years and visited 51 countries on my own. I don't have a camera but write poems instead! My poems cover a huge gamut of experiences. I have captured the weird, the wonderful, heartbreaking, humorous, inspirational and moving aspects of my travelling and life. I have written poems celebrating the inner child in all of us, the secret of Happiness and in honour of another aspect of life... Death. I have also written many personal poems for people whom in some cases I have only met once and unlikely to meet again. My personal poems are thought provoking and motivational. There is a spiritual depth to them too and almost miraculously they zoom in on and highlight the source of a person’s fears and woes and offer release and solutions. I honestly can’t say how I do this, as not only has the individual not talked about their pain to me, in most cases they have buried it from themselves. My poems acknowledging their problems with heartfelt advice and hope bring enlightenment and tears of wonderment, to me too! Most of my poems are written at night in a trance-like state and I wake up in the morning to reams of paper. Sometimes I have to look up words in the dictionary as I don’t know what they mean or even if they exist, and I am amazed to find they are words which express exactly what I am trying to say! Even Oprah Winfrey visiting a murderer in prison is the inspiration for one of my trance-like channelled poems! I feel the prisoner's subconscious was speaking through me and what develops is truly incredible and alarming. My poems are cherished by me. "I have the armour to fight life's lions" and "I have captured the Gift of Happiness within my heart" Even people who don't like poems love mine passionately. They all rhyme and have a readable, enjoyable flow to them. Nobody hears one without wanting to hear another. Last night I dreamed of a beautiful angel called Seraphina who told me she was my travel companion. I feel she should share some credit for my wondrous gift and now have the title for my book which has eluded me for many years.
