Taste: A Dystopian Vampire Romance

I never wanted to be Chosen. Married off to one of the Elites and whisked away to the City of Lights. It was supposed to be some kind of honor, to share our bodies, our blood, to preserve the peace between our two races... for some girls in my town, it was a fairy tale ending. For me, it was just another way the Elites reminded us that we were slaves.

But then I met Damien. The most beautiful boy I'd even seen, and a prince. He saved me, and showed kindness in the woods. His sky blue eyes stirred up feelings I'd never had before. Dreams I'd never allowed myself to consider. There's no way he would choose me.

But then he did.

The only problem is, I get the feeling he doesn't even want me. Everyone wants to know why I'm so special, what he saw in me.

I wish I knew. Because I'm leaving everything behind for him, to serve him and preserve the covenant. But when I get to the City of Lights, I discover the reality is far more complex than the legends they've been feeding us. Not everybody is happy to be ruled. And some will fight to be free. Once I get a taste of revolution, it lights my blood on fire.

But that means my new husband is also my worst enemy.

How can I share a room, a bed, without tipping him off?

Taste is a dystopian vampire romance. Fans of the Hunger Games, Red Queen, futuristic scifi and classic paranormal romance will love this unique twist on the 'vampire hunter' mythology.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

How many times have you seen The Wizard of Oz on Television? How many times have you seen Judy Garland and her red shoes following the Yellow Brick Road? Can you remember the story, or do you just remember the film characters? Forget all those, and immerse yourself in this magnificent book. If you also have preconceptions about pop-up books, then forget those too. The original story was written by L Frank Baumand; this edition, created by Robert Sabuda, is a shorter version of the original story. The artwork, in the style of WW Denslow, the original artist, is exceptional, made up of prints created from cut blocks of linoleum. Open up the first page and find Dorothy, with her uncle Henry, a farmer, and his wife Aunt Em on their farm in the cyclone belt of Kansas, USA. Watch the cyclone approach and see the house and its surroundings before they are transported (found over the page) to a "country of marvellous beauty", the land of Oz. Meet the munchkins, hear about the Wicked Witch of the East and be there when Dorothy finds the magical silver shoes, and the Witch of the North, before undertaking her journey on the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City, accompanied by her dog Toto. Dorothy joins up with a scarecrow, finds a tin woodman, and a cowardly lion, and with them makes her way through a great forest. The Emerald City comes into view (more easily appreciated when seen through the green spectacles provided) and Dorothy discovers Oz, the Great and Terrible. The amazing story unfolds and the travellers continue in their quest to find the Wicked Witch. Further adventures ensue, featuring flying monkeys, yellow Winkie slaves, the demise of the Wicked Witch, and soon, until eventually, as in all good stories, there is a happy ending when Dorothy returns home safely. Recommend for children aged 6 years and over, this book is a modern take on a real classic, and it will make an excellent gift for book lovers everywhere.--Susan Naylor
