    Our latest Ann Cleeves collection contains two Vera Stanhope novels (6, 7 and 8 in the series) and two of her Shetland books (6 and 7). Both of these series have been adapted into popular television dramas, but we believe the novels are even more compelling.

    The Vera (a character played by Brenda Blethyn) novels - The Seagull, Harbour Street and The Moth Catcher - find the clever but chaotic detective delving into a case that could destroy the close-knit community she lives in; on the trail of a killer who murdered someone on a packed train; and investigating the links between two bodies that are connected but found nowhere near each other.

    Shetland's Thin Air and Cold Earth find Detective Jimmy Perez (played in the series so perfectly by Douglas Henshall) on the case of a missing girl who claims to have seen a ghost of a child who drowned in the 1920s; and looking into a landslide that may or may not have killed his old friend Magnus Tait...

    This collection includes books 6, 7 and 8 in Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope series and 6 and 7 in her Shetland series.

    Philippa Gregory, author of the Cousins' War series, is often regarded as the queen of historical fiction and this meticulously researched novel focuses on the legacy left by Lady Jane Grey, a woman who was Queen of England for nine days.

    Using her position as cousin to the deceased king, her father and his conspirators put her on the throne ahead of the king's half-sister Mary, who quickly mustered an army, claimed her crown and locked Jane in the Tower. When Jane refused to betray her Protestant faith, Mary sent her to the executioner's block... It's here where Jane turned her father's greedy grab for power into a tale of brave and tragic martyrdom.

    Jane leaves all kinds of letters to her younger sister, Katherine, and they're all intended to help her enjoy her beauty, youth and to find love. Katherine's lineage makes her a threat to the insecure and infertile Queen Mary and when news of a secret marriage is revealed by her pregnancy, she is also sent to the tower. She, too, leaves the youngest Grey sister, Mary, a letter with advice.

    Mary is a beautiful dwarf who has been disregarded by the court and she finds it easy to keep secrets. After watching her sisters defy the Queen, Mary knows she is a possible heir to the throne, but she's determined to stay in charge of her own destiny.

    The winner of both the Carnegie Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal in 2012, Chaos Walking author Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel about the difficult subject of terminal illness and coming to terms with loss.

    Based on an idea by the late Siobhan Dowd, this is an unforgettable read. 'The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do...' is how the book begins, but it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. This monster is something different - something ancient and something wild.

    Now an acclaimed film starring Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson, A Monster Calls is a heartbreakingly beautiful read.
