Introducing THE GATHERING DARK Book Trailer
I know I’ve been shouting about THE GATHERING DARK for what feels like a long time, but it’s a book that deserves to be shouted about. Loudly and often. This is the perfect YA crossover book. Filled with romance, intrigue, fantasy and a world that is so rich and epic you can’t wait to return to it long after the last page is turned (there’s a sequel out next year—thank goodness!). but don’t take my word for it, watch the trailer and you can enter to win a free copy of THE GATHERING DARK! We have five copies to give away!
Watch THE GATHERING DARK trailer and answer this question: How many times does The Darkling appear in the trailer? Send your answer to: email@example.com with the subject line: THE DARKLING by 11pm on the 6th June 2012.
Intrigued? Read the first four chapters here.

MIDWINTERBLOOD – it’s amazing what you can miss…
Marcus has been published by Orion’s childrens list for many years now, and though I’ve dabbled with his vampire series (My Swordhand is Singing and Kiss of Death), and dipped a toe into his brilliant Raven Mysteries, I have only ever had a passing acquaintance with his writing. My work limited my reading to Orion’s […]Read More

Wise and Wonderful: Introducing Bitterblue
I absolutely love Kristin Cashore’s novels . . . perhaps, as I’m her UK editor, that comes as no surprise. But I was asked a few days ago if I could put my finger on what makes her novels stand out so vividly. Many books are beautifully, evocatively and powerfully written.

Brilliant books; brilliant readers; brilliant audiobooks!
Audio publishing is, without doubt, the most fun you can have in the book world without a free bar – I mean, where else can you sit and listen to a former member of the Rocky Horror band give voice to a squirrel that sounds like it’s been taking coke (or at least overdosing on […]Read More
