"The first year is when some of us lose our lives. The second year is when the rest of us lose our humanity." -Xaden Riorson
Everyone expected Violet Sorrengail to die during her first year at Basgiath War College-Violet included. But Threshing was only the first impossible test meant to weed out the weak-willed, the unworthy, and the unlucky.
Now the real training begins, and Violet's already wondering how she'll get through. It's not just that it's grueling and maliciously brutal, or even that it's designed to stretch the riders' capacity for pain beyond endurance. It's the new vice commandant, who's made it his personal mission to teach Violet exactly how powerless she is-unless she betrays the man she loves.
Although Violet's body might be weaker and frailer than everyone else's, she still has her wits-and a will of iron. And leadership is forgetting the most important lesson Basgiath has taught her: Dragon riders make their own rules.
But a determination to survive won't be enough this year.
Because Violet knows the real secret hidden for centuries at Basgiath War College-and nothing, not even dragon fire, may be enough to save them in the end.
The Empyrean series is best enjoyed in order.

This would be a great book to share at home and in a learning setting. It could result in a child expressing how they truly feel and equally a great one representing that talking about your feelings really matters.
Ella Bailey's expressive illustrations truly bring the story to life and are in keeping with its target audience of young readers. It's also great to see a diverse male character as the main character highlighting that we all have feelings and can all be emotional regardless of our gender.

The Ickabog is coming... A mythical monster, a kingdom in peril, an adventure that will test two children's bravery to the limit. Discover a brilliantly original fairy tale about the power of hope and friendship to triumph against all odds, from one of the world's best storytellers.
The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest moustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them.
Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own.
Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn't ask for and never expected?
If you're feeling brave, step into the pages of this book to find out...
A beautiful hardback edition, perfect for sharing and gift-giving. Brought to life with full-colour illustrations by the young winners of The Ickabog Illustration Competition.

'A feel-good rhyming tale . . . Field's Australian animals are a treat' - Bookseller
Having invested many reading-hours into these books over the past couple of years, I did feel quite emotional saying goodbye to these characters, who feel like old friends. The ending is well done and gives our heroes an appropriate send off, even if Colfer can't resist leaving the tiniest cliffhanger at the very end in typical fashion!
I have loved reading the stories as much as my children have...
