Forged by Benedict Jacka

The Blurb On The Back:

Alex Verus faces his dark side … 

To protect his friends, the probability mage Alex Verus has had to change – and embrace his dark side.  But the life mage Anne has changed too, and made a bond with a dangerous power.  She’s going after everyone she’s got a grudge against – and it’s a long list.

The Council’s death squads are hunting Alex as well as Anne, and the only way for Alex to stop them is to end his long war with the Council by whatever means necessary.  It will take everything Alex has to stay ahead and stop Anne from letting the world burn.

Choose Your Own Adventure: Mountain Survival by Edward Packard

The Blurb On The Back:

Danger awaits you in the mountain wilderness!

You and your pilot Jake have crashed in the Canadian Rockies.  Jake is hurt, so it’s up to you to hike through the snow for help.  You walk for hours until you come to a cabin.  Inside you see a terrifying scene – a boy is tied to a chair, guarded by a sleeping man with a shotgun and a hunting knife!

What should you do?  If you decide to play it safe and look for help, turn to page 83.  If you try to sneak in and grab the gun and knife, turn to page 89.  Be careful.  Your next move could make you rich – or trap you forever in the dangerous mountains!

What happens next in the story?  It all depends on the choices you make.  How does the story end?  Only you can find out!  And the best part is that you can keep reading and rereading until you’ve had not one but many incredibly daring adventures!

Bone Talk by Candy Gourlay

The Blurb On The Back:

See, the Tree of Bones calls.  Can you see?

More than a hundred years ago, a boy called Samkad thinks he knows everything about the world.  He knows the mountains he lives in.  He knows his people.  He knows his blood enemy, the Mangili.  And he wants to become a man, to be given his own shield, spear and axe to fight with.  His best friend, Luke, wants all the same things – except she is a girl, and no girl has ever become a warrior

But everything changes when a new boy arrives in the village.  He calls himself Samkad’s brother, yet he knows nothing of the ways of the mountain.  And he brings news of a people called ‘Americans’, who are bringing war and destruction right to his home …
