About the Book
The Garsal have landed, the world has changed, and Shanna has gifts that might save everyone. With her starcats by her side and her friends around her, she must try to master her gifts and seek out the alien invaders before they enslave her world. On the plateau the Council under Tamazine (the Senior Councillor) allies with the Starlyne race, but Tamazine's distrust of the alliance creates a fatal weakness.

In 'The City of Silver Light', Keira Leichman spent the night lost in a wild snowstorm that struck Cassidy Heights. But what really happened that night? Not even Keira can be sure. What she does know is that she's been having strange dreams since the accident, and now she's stuck with a broken ankle and the possibility of never playing soccer again. That is, until she finds Jake's telescope, which calls her to the City of Silver Light.
Cold Faith by Shaune Lafferty Webb
Early praise for Cold Faith
"Gripped from the beginning"
Debra - DnS Media Book Reviews
"... creative and engrossing ... death, treachery and lies are all interwoven brilliantly into the story. "
Jemma Telford - Reviewer
"It hit a lot of the right notes for me in terms of description, character development, world-building - and the twist at the end was great!"
Toni L.H. Boughton - author of 'Wolf Running'
A protracted volcanic winter has devastated Earth, leaving only isolated pockets of survivors. With food becoming scarcer and the air growing toxic, Rab sees just one chance for survival: a perilous journey north in search of a fabled city where ships were rumoured to have been launched, ferrying the people of Earth to a salvation planet. But Rab didn't count on being forced into taking the last three children from his dying village, or on coming across the hostile and sceptical Sunny living with her grandfather in comparative luxury among a large band of refugees in an underground sanctuary. When her grandfather begs to join Rab's party, Sunny, to Rab's dismay, insists on coming with them. Years ago, Sunny had been the lone survivor of a similar quest. The reason behind the failure of that quest is something Sunny has never revealed, not even to her grandfather. And Rab is now to discover why.

ON by Jon Puckridge
OneWorld, a planet orbited by thousands of satellite cities (SAT islands), and home to a civilization of 23 billion humans. A place where governments, police forces and law courts compete for business within a wholly privatised system. A place where: murder rape and torture are merely extra items on your insurance policy, a corporation owns the license for time, scientific fact has been replaced by 'consumer information', and history is traded on the stock exchange. Here; every product is wirelessly linked to the grID - a source of both data and geo-electric power, and humans spend most of their scheduled 'waketime' moving through various overlapping realities, via their grID visors.
But now the precarious balance of OneWorld is tipped when CoolGlobalGiant, the largest of the global corporations, launches the next phase of networking: One Network - or 'ON'.
