RAPTURE
A Fallen Novel
by Lauren Kate

Fans of Lauren Kate’s Fallen Series have been becoming steadily more desperate as the release date of the fourth book in the series, Rapture approaches. Talking about her fans, there is a good chance that you are one of them, she has 160,000 fans on the Official Australian page for Fallen. Who knows how many worldwide? I can’t count that high.

If you’ve read this far you probably already know everything there is to know about Rapture, but are reading here in the desperate hope I will let some tiny piece of ‘never before heard’ information slip. But I can’t tell you anything new, at all. Apart from this – Booktopia is accepting pre-orders now. Here’s the blurb…

The sky is dark with wings. . . .

In Rapture, the highly anticipated fourth and final novel in the Fallen series, Luce and Daniel are together. . . but for how long?

Can history be rewritten?

Or are some punishments eternal?

THE GOLDEN LILY
A Bloodlines Novel
by Richelle Mead

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she’s supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she’s been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

Passion

Book Three of the Fallen series

Love begins. Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

Sweeping across centuries, Passion is the third novel in the unforgettably epic Fallen series.

Passion not only gives answers and insight into who Luce and Daniel were before we first met them, but also seamlessly moves ahead the main plot, setting up an incredibly thrilling and climactic introduction to the fourth and final chapter in the Fallen series – coming in 2012. )

Torment :

Book Two of the Fallen series

How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for?

In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean – and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives.

Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future … and that Daniel hasn’t told her everything.

What if his version of the past isn’t actually the way things happened … what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?

Fallen

Book One of the Fallen series

Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant — even evil — history.

It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here — though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanour toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again… and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years… and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.
