Vigil (Verity Fassbinder 01)
Fabulous paranormal mystery… set here, in Brisbane (or, as Angela would have it: Brisneyland) – how could we not recommend this, above all else? Oh – and the sequel – Corpselight (TP, $32.99) – is out in July – and we’re launching it… watch this space!
Urban fantasy | TP | $32.99
The Waking Fire (Draconis Memoria 01)
Really intricate, cool, new fantasy series – or is it? Will it do a Pern and turn out to be lost high-tech rather than fantasy? Unsure – but either way – what a ride!
