    The inspiration for Netflix's hit show Shadowhunters, Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series combines heart-stopping, action-packed thrills with supernatural elements and forbidden romance. Complete with refreshed artwork, here you'll find all six books in the series for one unbelievable price.

    After witnessing a horrific incident, Clary finds herself drawn to the Shadowhunters, a secret group who are determined to rid New York's underworld - and the rest of the world - of demons. Full of mystery, intrigue and betrayal, Clary also finds herself falling for someone she shouldn't...

    Please note that this collection contains mature themes.
    This collection contains the entire series (books 1-6) of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments.

    This collection features Frances Hardinge's Costa Book of the Year winner The Lie Tree alongside two other deliciously dark and twisted tales. They're suitable for ages 12 and over, but we wouldn't be surprised if adults find themselves fully absorbed into these rich worlds...

    In The Lie Tree, Faith's father is found dead under very mysterious circumstances. While searching through his belongings for clues, she discovers a strange tree that only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. This fruit will then deliver a hidden truth to anyone who eats it...

    Cuckoo Song is a beautifully eerie story that was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Triss wakes up after an accident and knows something is off. She's hungry; her sister is scared of her and her parents are whispering. She looks in her diary to find out what happened but the pages have been ripped out. Her quest for the truth takes her to places more strange and terrible than she could have ever imagined...

    Fly by Night is Frances' wonderfully inventive debut novel about a 12-year-old girl and her bad-tempered goose who become the unlikely heroes of a radical revolution.

    Originally published in the late 1800s, the lively nature of the What Katy Did trilogy has inspired so many classic children's books - with Jacqueline Wilson stating it's one of her favourite stories.

    The original story introduces Katy Carr; a girl who has grand plans to be beautiful, graceful and ladylike - but all of that can wait. She's now happy to have tangled hair and to wear a torn dress. She's got a wild imagination and is always up to mischief. However, when she's involved a terrible accident, it takes a lot of courage - and patience - to keep her dreams alive.

    What Katy Did at School finds Kay and her sister Clover leaving for boarding school, but they're weighed down by worries that their father won't cope without them; and What Katy Did Next has Katy exploring the beautiful sights of Europe.

    Presented in a slipcase, these are beloved stories your children and you will both enjoy in equal measure.
