Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Witches of Eileanan : Book five. The Skull of the World continues this compelling series. 'Sign of the Soul-Sage, a good omen for your quest, so high to the roof of heaven,' the Soul-Sage said. 'A sign of death as well as wisdom, though, remember. Change ahead for you, like the change wrought on a landscape by an avalanche. Dangerous pattern indeed. There are things in your past and in your unknown which shall seize you in their jaws and seek to drag you under.' Isabeau has immersed herself in the life of the Khan'cohbans but she still hopes to return to Eileanan from her self-imposed exile. First, though, she must undertake her journey of initiation to the Skull of the World, where the cruel and enigmatic Gods of White will reveal her destiny to her. On this journey she will face many dangers but by overcoming them, will finally discover her true Talent - shape-changing. After successfully fulfilling her initiation quest, Isabeau returns to the Pride triumphantly and is given her initiation scar. She is now free to return to Lucescere and the Tower of Two Moons, where she plans to study to be a sorceress. Meanwhile, Iseult and Lachlan face new challenges to their rule. Although peace has been restored to the lands of Eileanan, the young Rìgh and Banrìgh have paid a high price for victory. Lachlan's forces are much depleted by the struggle to win the war and, despite the signing of the Pact of Peace, there are still many pockets of civil unrest, with pirates attacking ships and coastal towns to great cost. Most importantly, the Rìgh's army has marched upon Tìrsoilleir in an attempt to win back the throne for Elfrida NicHilde. But while Lachlan and Iseult are preoccupied with the invasion of Tìrsoilleir, Margrit NicFóghnan, the deposed banprionnsa of Arran, kidnaps Lachlan's son Donncan, the heir to the throne, and her grandson, Iain's son Neil, from Lucescere. Bitter at the loss of her own throne, her hatred of the MacCuinn clan has become obsessive and she wishes to turn the young prionnsa against his father and use his magic for her own. It is Isabeau, though, who stands accused of treachery when little Donncan and Neil disappear, and yet no-one but she has the power to save the children from their fate at the hands of Margrit. This will be the truest test of Isabeau's Talent, a test which will threaten to destroy her and all she holds dear.

The Fathomless Caves is the explosive final instalment of this bestselling series I saw the scaly sea rise and flood the land, the Red Wanderer like a bloody gash in the sky. That is when they will come, with the rising o' the red comet the Fairgean shall come ... Before his death, the blind prophet Jorge had foreseen the conjuring of a tidal wave by the sea-dwelling Fairgean, Eileanan's bitterest enemies. Driven by ancient hatreds, the Fairgean have called upon dreadful powers to aid them in their quest to totally annihilate all those who dwell upon the land. As the time of the comet draws ever closer, Lachlan and Iseult try desperately to avert the terrible fate the seer had prophesied, testing their strength and love to the utmost. Meanwhile, Isabeau must travel a dark and dangerous road to fulfill her own destiny and prove herself worthy of the ring of the sorceress. Facing old enemies and new, the most difficult challenge of all will be conquering the ghosts of her past. For if Isabeau is to heal the land, she first must find the way to healing her own troubled spirit ... The Fathomless Caves brings to a dramatic conclusion the war between the land-dwellers of Eileanan and the sea-dwelling Fairgean – a war which has been building steadily since readers first found out about the Fairgean's devious plans in Dragonclaw.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Witches of Eileanan series: Book Two. The Pool of Two Moons, the eagerly awaited sequel to Dragonclaw At the terrible Day of Reckoning witchcraft was outlawed in Eileanan; witches were killed and their great towers of learning destroyed. Behind the persecution is the beautiful and mysterious Banrigh. The Lodestar, the Inheritance of Adean wielded by the rulers of Eileanan, is lost. Jaspar, the Righ, sickens as he hears the Lodestar's song grow fainter and fainter. Not all the witches were killed on the Day of Reckoning, however.The wood witch Meghan leads the half-blackbird, half-man Bacaiche and the Scarred Warrior Iseult through the countryside to the safety of the Veiled Forest, where she hopes to meet up with Isabeau, her ward, whom she has entrusted to carry part of the precious Key of the Coven. Once in the forest they are visited by the magical Celestines, and Bacaiche reveals his true identity. There are also other, less welcome visitors: the Banrigh's Red Guards may be easily repelled at the forest's fringes, but not so the deadly mesmerdean. In the royal castle at Rhysmadill, Isabeau recovers from the rigours of her journey and falls into her role as serving-girl. There she observes the Righ's decline, and feels the sinister presence of the Banrigh's maid, Sani. As Eileanan's ancient enemies, the sea-dwelling Fairge, take control of parts of the coast, trade grinds to a halt. In the countryside life is hard, supplies not always what they were, and the once-loved faery creatures cruelly hunted down. In the far reaches of swamp-bound Arran, Margrit makes her own plans. As does her son, Iain, whom she has kept a virtual prisoner in the Tower of Mists. Meanwhile Jorge the Blind Seer leads his group of tattered children to the rebels' camp deep in the mountains. The rebels plan to take the ancient city of Lucesere on Samhain Eve. If they do, and the Key can be joined, great magic can be invoked in their cause. At Lucesere is the remains of the witches' Tower of Two Moons and its magical pool. What secrets lie in the pool's depths? Can the Lodestar be freed and Eileanan live in peace once again?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Witches of Eileanan: Book 4. The Forbidden Land, another gripping instalment in this pacy series. Finn the Cat is bored with life as a banprionnsa. Nothing much ever seems to happen at Castle Rurach, and she's always getting into trouble for climbing trees, playing with the stable-lads and smoking her pipe, instead of sewing a fine seam like a banprionnsa should. To make things worse, her cousin Brangaine has come to live with them and is everything a banprionnsa should be - beautiful, gracious, and always perfectly behaved. Luckily for Brangaine, a caravan of jongleurs arrive at Castle Rurach to break the monotony before Finn does so - with her fists! But this is no ordinary caravan. Led by Dide the Juggler, the jongleurs - including Enit Silverthroat, Dillon the Bold and Jay the Fiddler - have come on behalf of the Rìgh. Once again it seems that Lachlan the Winged has particular need of someone with Finn's peculiar abilities... Finn, desperate for adventure, eagerly takes up the Righ's exciting commission and joins the expedition. Their objective: to help Elfrida NicHilde, the deposed banprionnsa of Tìrsoilleir, win back her crown. Their first task: to recapture the prophet, Killian the Listener, imprisoned in the Black Tower by the corrupt and cruel Tirsoilleirean General Assembly. They have the perfect cover - who would ever suspect this raggle-taggle band of espionage and kidnapping - this'll be loads of fun, thinks Finn. Until she realises she'll be sharing this adventure with her stuck-up cousin Brangaine. It is not long before Brangaine becomes the very least of Finn's worries. Setting out on this clandestine journey that will take them beyond the Great Divide and into the Forbidden Land, the companions must face dangers that will test their courage and resolve to breaking point ... and beyond. On their quest, this small party will brave their most fierce enemies in war-torn Eileanan: Fairgean warriors, the Bright Soldiers, and a colony of deadly Nyx among them. And they will be thwarted by unexpected betrayals, shipwreck, illness and exhaustion, and for Finn, a terrible enemy within. How can these castaways possibly continue their quest when they can barely keep themselves alive? How are they to get a message through to Lachlan to tell him of their fate and the dangers ahead when they are so securely trapped? But somehow they must or their quest will fail and the war against the Tirsoilleirean will be lost. Finn holds their last hope but, gripped within an evil spell - an insidious magic that has been seeping through her all these years - she is powerless to act. She must look into the very depths of her soul to battle the dark magic and if she can break this spell she will not only free herself but reclaim her chance to secure the freedom and peace of all Eileanan. And along the way she might just discover too that her prissy cousin Brangaine is not such a wimp afterall... The Forbidden Land is an intensely rivetting adventure that will take you on an unforgettable journey, a magical ride through another chapter of Eileanan's rich and turbulent history.

Soon the satyricorns will kill her - and even if she runs away, their swift hunters will find her in the end.

Book excerpt: In Eileanan, victory has finally been won, and those of faery kind—from the mighty dragons to the mysterious nyx—have sworn their friendship and aid. Only the sea-dwelling Fairgean have refused to sign the Pact of Peace. Driven by ancient hatreds, they have devoted themselves to destroying all who dwell upon the land. Troubled by the darkness that may lie ahead, Lachlan agrees to release his beloved Iseult from the sacred oath that binds them together. It will then be for Iseult to decide whether she will remain in the mountains to resume life with her own kin, or return to the man who let her go. To help bring peace to Eileanan, Iseult’s flame-haired twin, Isabeau, must also face her most difficult challenge yet. But before she can prove herself worthy of both the scar of the Soul-Sage and the ring of the sorceress, she must first find a way to heal her own wounded spirit.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After the Celebration explores Australian fiction from 1989 to 2007, after Australia's bicentenary to the end of the Howard government. In this literary history, Ken Gelder and Paul Salzman combine close attention to Australian novels with a vivid depiction of their contexts: cultural, social, political, historical, national and transnational. From crime fiction to the postmodern colonial novel, from Australian grunge to 'rural apocalypse fiction', from the Asian diasporic novel to the action blockbuster, Gelder and Salzman show how Australian novelists such as Frank Moorhouse, Elizabeth Jolley, Peter Carey, Kim Scott, Steven Carroll, Kate Grenville, Tim Winton, Alexis Wright and many others have used their work to chart our position in the world. The literary controversies over history, identity, feminism and gatekeeping are read against the politics of the day. Provocative and compelling, After the Celebration captures the key themes and issues in Australian fiction: where we have been and what we have become.

Isault and Lachlan must continue to deal with their military position in Tirsoilleir—where a spy has compromised their tactical secrets, leaving them at a tremendous loss. Isabeau the witch longs to rejoin her sister and her home in these uncertain times, but she must first complete one last task for her teachers. To find her true purpose in life, she must reach the Skull of the World and listen to the silent words of the White Gods. Few survive. But those who do are changed forever. Now, when she does return home, she does so with an extraordinary gift. But when Margrit of Arran decides to take advantage of Lachlan’s absence by kidnapping his son and heir to the throne, Isabeau must learn to use her gifts in the face of evil—and overcome her enemy once and for all.
