By Kate Elliott

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

In this thrilling sequel to World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott's acclaimed young adult debut, a girl immersed in high-stakes competition holds the fate of a kingdom in her hands.

"Jes will remind readers of fearless Katniss.... Let the games continue!" (Booklist starred review for Court of Fives)

Now a Challenger, Jessamy is moving up the ranks of the Fives--the complex athletic contest favored by the lowliest Commoners and the loftiest Patrons alike. Pitted against far more formidable adversaries, success is Jes's only option, as her prize money is essential to keeping her hidden family alive. She leaps at the chance to tour the countryside and face more competitors, but then a fatal attack on her traveling party puts Jes at the center of the war that Lord Kalliarkos--the prince she still loves--is fighting against their country's enemies. With a sinister overlord watching her every move and Kal's life on the line, Jes must now become more than a Fives champion.... She must become a warrior.

Terry Brooks
Authors:
Terry Brooks

'TERRY'S PLACE IS AT THE HEAD OF THE FANTASY WORLD' Philip PullmanFollowing The Black Elfstone and The Skaar Invasion comes the third book in the triumphant four-part conclusion to the Shannara series, from one of the all-time masters of fantasy.The Skaar have arrived in the Four Lands, determined to stop at nothing less than all-out conquest. They badly need a new home, but peaceful coexistence is not a concept they understand. An advance force under the command of princess Ajin has already established a foothold, but now the full Skaar army is on the march - and woe betide any who stands in its way.But perhaps the Skaar victory is not a foregone conclusion. The Druid Drisker Arc has freed both himself and Paranor from exile. Drisker's student, Tarsha Kaynin, has been reunited with the chief defender of the Druid order, and is learning to control her powerful Wishsong magic. If they can only survive Tarsha's brother and the Druid who betrayed Drisker Arc, they might stand a chance of defeating the Skaar. But that is a very big if . . . as Tarsha's brother now carries the Stiehl - one of the most powerful weapons in all the Four Lands - and is determined to take his revenge on everyone who has wronged him.Praise for Terry Brooks:'I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and re-read) over the years' Patrick Rothfuss'I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara' Peter V. Brett'A master of the craft . . . required reading' Brent Weeks

The Mammoth Book of Women's Erotic Fantasies

Sonia Florens
Authors:
Sonia Florens

What do women really want? What are their most intimate erotic desires? The confessions gathered together in this volume come from 50 perfectly ordinary women from all parts of the United Kingdom, elsewhere in Europe, North America and Australia. They offer up their most private dreams and most closely kept sexual secrets. Some of their fantasies are shocking, others playful, but all are utterly captivating. The stories lay bare the often bizarre nature of female desire, a buried thread in sometimes mundane lives. Juices run freely at breakfast with Tiffany; another woman enjoys a knickerless ride on public transport; a student experiences an oral examination by the professor of poetry; a housewife joins Club Ped in a foot-fetish fantasy; another woman sleeps her way across America with Kerouac.Erotic and illuminating, these are stories for open-minded, sensual readers.
