Wizard At Large

***50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD*** ‘Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world’ Philip Pullman Ben Holiday, the High Lord of Landover, is back in his rightful place. The evil wizard Meeks has finally been dealt with, and all seems well with the world. But, even in a Magic Kingdom, peace never lasts long. It was all Questor Thews’ fault, really – whether the inept Court Wizard would like to admit it or not. His bumbling attempt to return Abernathy from the body of a dog to his original human form, resulted in the Court Scribe being transported to Earth, to be replaced by a multi-coloured bottle. Furthermore, Abernathy was wearing the High Lord’s medallion at the time, without which Ben’s powers are drastically reduced. Ben and Willow set out to find Abernathy, which means following him to Earth. Which means leaving Questor in charge. And that’s when things start to go horribly wrong. . . Praise for Terry Brooks: ‘A master of the craft . . . required reading’ Brent Weeks ‘I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read (and re-read) over the years’ Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind ‘I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara’ Peter V. Brett, author of The Painted Man ‘If you haven’t read Terry Brooks, you haven’t read fantasy’ Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon

Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly.

Witches on Parole

**Two pendants. Two students. And it’s entirely possible they didn’t volunteer.**
World-famous (and now retired) photographer Jenvieve Adams has a debt to repay–and a soft spot for witches who have lost their way. Or so she thinks, until they actually show up.
Jennie is the newest guide for WitchLight, and her first two students are about to arrive. One is an obsessive psychologist with hidden layers under her repressed exterior. The other is a grown-up juvenile delinquent with a passion for words and a kick-ass biscuit recipe.
Can Jennie help unlock their hearts? The journey will involve (sometimes involuntary!) sisterhood, a little knitting, karaoke, a touch of magic, and one hopefully temporary belly tattoo.
**Note: ***Witches on Parole* is a spin-off trilogy, set in the world of the *A Modern Witch* series. This trilogy can absolutely be enjoyed on its own, but if you haven’t yet read A Modern Witch, you might consider doing so–many of the characters featured in Witches on Parole get their start in the main series. For those who are already fans of the main series, this book falls between book 2 and 3, but can easily be read anytime after book 1.

Witches Abroad

SUMMARY: Be careful what you wish for…Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills–which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it’s up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn’t marry the Prince.But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who’ll stop at nothing to achieve a proper “happy ending”–even if it means destroying a kingdom.

Witch Out of Water

In addition to dating Moonstone Bay’s sheriff Galen Blackwood, Hadley has her hands full when she helps discover a body at a local festival and uncovers a decades’ old feud between two warring families.
The stories are flying fast and furious and the suspects are racking up. At the top of the list is local enigma Booker, a mysterious soul who Hadley is determined to chase until he starts giving answers about his hidden past.

That’s on top of bonding with a grandfather she didn’t even know she had. She doesn’t have a job but she’s always working at something … as long as she survives to see another fantastic island sunrise, that is.

The Witch of Portobello

Paulo Coelho, one of the world’s best loved storytellers, is back with a riveting new novel set in London.
This is the story of Athena, or Sherine, to give her the name she was baptised with. Her life is pieced together through a series of recorded interviews with those people who knew her well or hardly at all – parents, colleagues, teachers, friends, acquaintances, her ex-husband.
The novel unravels Athena’s mysterious beginnings, via an orphanage in Romania, to a childhood in Beirut. When war breaks out, her adoptive family move with her to London, where a dramatic turn of events occurs…
Athena, who has been dubbed ‘the Witch of Portobello’ for her seeming powers of prophecy, disappears dramatically, leaving those who knew her to solve the mystery of her life and abrupt departure.
Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way readers think about love, passion, joy and sacrifice.
