As the kingdom of Camelot descends into complacency, an ambitiously sadistic madman known as Merodach advances his rogue armies, recruiting by the sword and threatening revolt. Eighteen-year-old Princess Gabriella is the only one who understands the severity of the threat, but she is powerless to convince her father or her brave commoner husband, Darrick. With defeat all but certain, Gabriella sets out on a final, desperate quest. Her plan: to confront and defeat the madman, Merodach, before his armies can destroy everything she loves.

This is an absolutely fantastic book, I first came across this author when I read his James Potterseries, and I'm so glad he's written his own standalone novel. I love the imagery he creates with his writing, it almost feels like you're standing in the room with the characters. I would've liked it if her travels had maybe been a little bit longer, but overall I would say this is a great read.

Paulie Vergen is your average, everyday vampire. He's short, overweight, and balding, and he's a bit lacking in the realm of self-confidence. Life was what it was for Paulie until the day that a newly infected werewolf landed on his doorstep. That day launched the one (and only, to this point) adventure that Paulie had ever had ... and it was a doozy.

This is a really great book, i love the characters and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Anyone that likes Terry Pratchett will enjoy this, it has a similar humour, but it is distinctly different with his own flair.

Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team....

It was great to have the same reader continuing the series, and I really loved the story itself. I can't wait for more!
