Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice. But even as the unwieldly might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long-term plan.

Gay werewolves in Victorian London? Why yes, yes there are.

Biffy, newly minted Alpha of the London Pack, is not having a good Christmas. His Beta abandoned him, his werewolves object to his curtain choices, and someone keeps leaving babies on his doorstep.

Professor Randolph Lyall returns home to London after 20 years abroad, afraid of what he might find. With his pack in chaos and his Alpha in crisis, it will take all his Beta efficiency to set everything to rights. Perhaps, in the process, he may even determine how to mend his own heart.

If you enjoyed the first book you will enjoy this next chapter even more, although it seemed slower going & didn’t grip me as much at first, it is definitely worth sticking with, through the slow bits, twists you won’t predict will have your heart in your mouth, rooting for your favourite characters old & new & as ever the narration is wonderful, with different voices for everyone by the wonderful Jennifer Ikeda..

The villagers in the sleepy hamlet of Lychford are divided. A supermarket wants to build a major branch on their border. Some welcome the employment opportunities while some object to the modernization of the local environment. Judith Mawson (local crank) knows the truth - that Lychford lies on the boundary between two worlds and that the destruction of the border will open wide the gateways to malevolent beings beyond imagination. But if she is to have her voice heard, she's going to need the assistance of some unlikely allies....

I love the amazing worlds within worlds that Paul Cornell creates & transports you to. & the wonderful choice of such talented sympathetic voice artists who read his works, always seem like the perfectly considered performers.. He has fast become one of my favourite authors & I eagerly await any new works from him & Ben Aaronovich, if you like Ben, you’ll like Paul.. or perhaps, love him as I do... xxxx

Can a gentle werewolf heal the heart of a smart-mouthed mage? New York Times best-seller Gail Carriger, writing as GL Carriger, presents an offbeat gay romance in which a sexy werewolf with a white knight complex meets a bad-boy mage with an attitude problem. Sparks (and other things) fly.

I loved this book as much as all of her other works, the only thing I don't like, is when I run out, when they end & I have to wait for the next one... every single one has been a five star from me & I'd love to live in the world she has created, she is the Supernatural Steampunk Pratchett & LGBTQ- pansexual & pan-species to boot, all are welcome in this wonderful world & it's a beautiful all encompassing escape from the horror/mundanity of ours... Thank you so much & keep up the good work xxxxx

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Spectacles, the hilarious, creative and incredibly moving memoir from much loved comedian, writer and presenter Sue Perkins. When I began writing this book, I went home to see if my mum had kept some of my stuff. What I found was that she hadn't kept some of it. She had kept all of it - every bus ticket, postcard, school report....
