The Bone Dancer (Cassir Chronicles, #1)


by Katie Masters

In the magical desert of Cassir, only the nomadic caravans wander and thrive in the brutal, vast, scorching lands. But a darkness is drawing near, and heroes must rise, if they dare to answer the desert’s call.

All Ansi wants to do is be a dancer. However as second daughter of chief to the Mawavi tribe, she’s expected to do only one thing: marry well. Kept under the strict rule of her mother, Ansi secretly plans her escape. But when the caravan tribes begin gathering for the winter festival, she quickly finds her plans ruined and time running out, until the Bone Dancers arrive, offering her an escape.

Yet the legendary dancers seem to know more about Ansi than they’re letting on, and the desert’s cries are growing louder…

by Paul Johnson-Jovanovic

A spellbinding wizard school adventure novel …

Alfie Tinkler is no ordinary boy. He can do things other children can’t. He can turn the telly over just by thinking it. He can make lights flicker on and off when he gets angry. He can make objects disappear, never to be seen again. He knows why he’s able to do these things, because his parents have told him that he’s a wizard. What Alfie doesn’t know, however, is that there’s a magic school for children just like him.

But all that is about to change as Alfie meets a boy named Charles, who recognises him for what he is. Charles tells him about the Pendred Academy of Magic and before long Alfie finds himself enrolling for his first lesson. Whilst there, Alfie learns of a plot by an evil wizard to steal a powerful wand, which is being stored in a safe at the academy. He also finds out that the academy grounds serve as a portal: a gateway to another world. And that’s when the real adventure begins …
