There’s a murderer on board and Wren’s determined to find the killer. No easy task, considering nobody else believes her. Friendships get tested, and half her pod is ready to get rid of her. But before that they’ll have to survive their first assignment in the deadly, colossal War Theater.
Wren is surviving life on board the Titus Andronicus training ship. But surviving is not enough. The training’s getting more brutal while her pod is slipping lower down the ranks. To escape the pressures of being a combat cadet, she starts exploring restricted areas of the massive ship. Mind-blowing secrets are uncovered. Some amazing, others more terrifying - and one that shocks her to the core.
Wren is in the most dangerous place imaginable - a training ship full of fledgling killers heading to a war-torn planet. She’s struggling to keep up, and the other cadets aren't impressed. But Wren’s not done for yet. She’s a survivor and uses the one thing she’s got to even the odds - her super-smart brain. But will that be enough?
It’s 1940 and twins Jimmy and Patrick are off to catch frogs in the North London countryside. But as the day unfolds, Jimmy realises that the ghost of Nan Clarks Lane may be more than just a story.
(Also contains Chapter One from the full length novel A Shirtful of Frogs.)
Suitable for both adults and children aged 10+
Wren Harper lives on an overcrowded Earth on the brink of apocalypse. Her life is turned upside down when she is picked to be a cadet on board a vast combat training ship heading to a distant planet. She's not a fighter, so why has she been chosen? Will she survive the journey or will the training kill her first? This is a debut novella-length episode in a series full of cliffhanger endings.
It is the 6th century and Aelia has a forbidden love. But her secret is about to be discovered with terrible consequences. Chilling and fast-paced, Thicker Than Blood combines passion and drama with a historical twist.
Now an international bestseller. Fans of Twilight and Interview with the Vampire will enjoy this paranormal adventure that spans the centuries from modern London to 19th century Paris and ancient Cappadocia.
Madison Greene lives in foster care. On her sixteenth birthday she inherits a huge mansion house. But the house hides a secret; one that Madison is determined to uncover.
Lyndsey Water finds herself at the gates of heaven, but that’s not what’s making her knees quiver, because her grim reaper comes in the shape of bonny Aidan MacRae, a Scotsman from the eighteenth century. It’s definitely lust at first sight, but this quickly transforms into something deeper as they are given the opportunity to share glimpses of each other’s lives.
The story has a well-paced balance of humour and pathos as we are taken on an emotional journey through the main characters’ memories of Scotland, France and America. At one point, I thought this was going to be the main thrust of the story, but Cyndi Tefft manages to pack a few more surprises into this engaging tale.
There are strong themes of faith and family weaving through the novel and these fit in perfectly with the story. There's also a smattering of steaminess, but I'd say it's still a suitable read for young adults. Lindsay is a charming, funny, sympathetic main character and I’m looking forward to reading more about her in the sequel when it’s released!
