    Marianne Curley

    Product Code: AEQKW
    Paperback 12 years +
    Ebony has always known that she was different. Her violet eyes mark her out, and her protective parents have kept her in a gorgeous valley, home-schooled, with a small circle of lifelong friends, safe from everything - almost as if she's being hidden. But she's changing: glowing, getting more and more beautiful, and stronger than anyone knows. Ebony can't stay hidden for ever, and when she meets complicated, intense Jordan, something explodes inside her - something that can be seen from the heavens; something that changes everything. Ebony is a stolen angel, concealed on earth. Now the heavens have found her, they want her back.

    Carrie Jones

    Product Code: AAJQW
    Paperback 12 years +
    Zara and her friends knew they hadn't solved the pixie problem for good. Far from it. The king's needs grow deeper every day he's stuck in captivity, while his control over his people becomes weaker. It's made him vulnerable. And now there's a new king in town. A turf war is imminent. The new pixie king is moving in quickly. He swears that he and Zara are destined to be together, that he's one of the good guys. Zara isn't so sure. Despite herself, she wants to trust the new king, but there's a lot more than her relationship with boyfriend Nick at stake. It's her life - and his.
