(Non-fiction) Camellia McCluskey was a mother of three young children and a de facto wife in 1910, when such behaviour was not socially acceptable. When she realised her partner had another mistress she threatened to harm herself and her children, but he ignored her. With an axe and a kitchen knife, she brutally murdered their children–twins aged two and much-loved four-year old Dolly.

I would recommend this book to anybody who likes true crime books. I like that it takes place in the early 1900′s and it’s very interesting to see how attitudes toward women committing such crimes have changed since then. I’ve enjoyed every page turning minute.
Jo has it all: a great career, a handsome life partner–but then suddenly everything changes. When Tim leaves her, for a younger woman, suddenly her world crumbles; it seems her salvation has come when a favourite uncle dies and leaves her his quaint country cottage. A new life awaits her, but at what cost?
Absolutely brilliant book. Looked forward to reading it every evening. Expected the book to be quite predictable but that was not the case. Really recommended.

Set in the 25th century, Sanctuary tells the story of two very different civilizations: the Centrals, underground dwellers who lead a primitive existence and the Thrallians, who are a much more advanced people, most of who are unaware of the existence of the Centrals. When two young Thrallians, Derek and Patric, discover the secret they also uncover a plot by their own leaders and find their comfortable way of life is not quite what they thought.

I was drawn into this descriptive book very easily! The characters you could imagine very clearly, and once I finished reading it I was wishing it would last a lot longer! It was nail bitingly tense at times, and a lot of thought had gone into the story! Very easy to get swept up in the pages!
The city has been destroyed and food supplies are dwindling fast for the survivors. Sam is convinced their only hope is to leave–to look elsewhere for a new home, but, to do that, he and his family and friends must risk their lives and face the outlaw gangs who prey on the unwary.

Beast of War
Something is wrong on the island of Breeland. The river is drying up and there’s a prophecy of doom and destruction; a prophecy the young people of the three different races of the island take no notice of. Until one from each tribe is told they must venture to the den of the beast who threatens their very existence and that of all the peoples of the island. They must put aside their differences and work together, using the magical powers given to them each, of air, earth and fire.
Full of imagination and creativity. I highly recommend this book to all children regardless of their age.
This fantasy universe called Breeland is worth discovering.
