Ever Dark by Abi Elphinstone

It is midnight in Crackledawn – midnight full of magic. Sea dragons stir in the depths of the ocean, silver whales surface beneath the moon and sand goblins line the shores. Everyone is waiting for the Phoenix, the guardian of the kingdom’s magic, to rise up from the forests of Everdark. But there is no sign of the Phoenix tonight. Something else surges up out of Everdark instead: a harpy bent on stealing Crackledawn’s magic.

It is up to an eleven-year-old girl called Smudge and an eccentric monkey called Bartholomew to set sail beyond the legendary Northswirl and stop the harpy before it’s too late.

This is the story of two friends, one missing boy and a secret as precious as gold…

Nought Forever by Malorie Blackman

I’ve never been shot before. It’s dark but I keep seeing white flashes before my eyes like spots of lightning jabbing at me. Am I going into shock? Must be. But I can’t pass out, not now. Then I’ll be dead for sure.

Dan is on the run – hiding from a ruthless nought gang who want him dead.

It’s one of those nights. One of those nights where I sit alone and watch the world go by. One of those nights when if my hatred were fuel, I would happily light a match and watch the whole world burn.
