<b>In the last city on Earth, death is just a step into the trees.</b><br />Readers' Favorite ✭✭✭✭✭: <i>"The Gilded King is an amazing tale of adventure, friendship, and loyalty with a tone reminiscent of fairy tales and a unique fantasy spin on vampires in a journey so complex and addictive you'll immediately want the next one."</i><br /><br />In the Blue, the world’s last city, all is not well.<br />Julia is stuck within its walls. She serves the nobility from a distance until she meets Lucas, who believes in fairytales that her world can’t accommodate. The Blue is her prison, not her castle, and she’d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outside.<br />But not everyone in the Blue is human, and not everyone can be contained.<br />Beyond the city’s boundaries, in the wild forests of the Red, Cameron has precious little humanity left to lose. As he searches for a lost queen, he finds an enemy rising that he thought long dead. An enemy that the humans have forgotten how to fight.<br />One way or another, the walls of the Blue are going to come down. The only question is what side you’ll be on when they do.<br /><br /><b>✭✭✭✭✭ It blurs the lines between so many sub-genres of SFF: dystopian, post-apocalyptic, quest fantasy, zombies, vampires, romance, mystery… I loved it. – A Cat, A Book and A Cup of Tea<br />✭✭✭✭✭ Jaffrey manages to put a compelling new twist on vampire myth. – Lozzy’s Things<br />✭✭✭✭✭ It is a fantastic read, rich with colourful and diverse characters, incredible imagery and powerful storytelling. – Crown of Ice and Roses</b>

<b>A fresh twist on the classic story of Beauty and the Beast, Bellamy and the Brute proves true love really is blind.</b><br />When Bellamy McGuire is offered a summer job babysitting for the wealthy Baldwin family, she's reluctant to accept. After all, everyone in town knows about the mysterious happenings at the mansion on the hill—including the sudden disappearance of the Baldwin's eldest son, Tate. The former football star and golden boy of Wellhollow Springs became a hermit at the age of sixteen, and no one has seen or heard from him since. Rumors abound as to why, with whisperings about a strange illness—one that causes deformity and turned him into a real-life monster. Bellamy wants to dismiss these rumors as gossip, but when she's told that if she takes the job, she must promise to never, ever visit the third floor of the mansion, she begins to wonder if there really is some dark truth hidden there.<br />Tate's condition may not be the only secret being kept at Baldwin House. There are gaps in the family's financial history that don't add up, and surprising connections with unscrupulous characters. At night there are strange noises, unexplained cold drafts, and the electricity cuts out. And then there are the rose petals on the staircase. The rose petals that no one but Bellamy seems to be able to see. The rose petals that form a trail leading right up to the 3 rd floor, past the portrait of a handsome young man, and down a dark hallway where she promised she would never, ever go…<br />As Bellamy works to unravel the mysteries of Baldwin House and uncover the truth about Tate, she realizes that she is in way over her head… in more ways than one. Can her bravery and determination help to right the wrongs of the past and free the young man whose story has captured her heart?

Nothing more than Hollywood theatrics? "This is an authentic old west ghost town," the sheriff tells Nick. "Around these parts the dead don't stay dead."<br /><br />But Nick Caden's vacation becomes a living nightmare when this this "living" ghost town in Deadwood takes a deadly turn toward trouble. Soon Nick finds himself trapped in a livery stable with the infamous outlaw <b>Jesse James</b>. The shooter whirls, aims and... vanishes. <i>Great theatrics</i>, Nick thinks. Except now he's alone in the hayloft with the bullet-riddled body of <b>Billy the Kid</b> which (and this is where things really get crazy-scary) <b><i>DISAPPEARS</i></b>.<br /><br />Soon Nick is caught in a deadly chase---from an abandoned gold mine, through forbidden buffalo hunting grounds, and across Rattlesnake Gulch. Around every turn he finds another suspect. Will Nick solve the murder before his family leaves Deadwood? Or will the town's desperate need for tourist and income bury the haunting truth -- that something evil lives in this Old West Ghost Town?<br /><br />In this middle-grade murder mystery series, award-winning author Eddie Jones takes readers on a Wild, Wild, West ride.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Dead Man's Hand</i></b><br /><br />"This is teen fiction that's not just for teens. I for one can't wait for the next book in the series. For adventure, suspense and just plain laugh-out-loud fun, you can't do better than <i>Dead Man's Hand</i>". ~ <b>Ann Tatlock, multiple Christy award winner<i></i></b><br /><br />"<i>Dead Man's Hand</i> is an exciting ghost-story with lots of surprises. A great read for kids who love a good mystery. I highly recommend it!" ~ <b>Levi Holmes, son of best-selling author and two-time Christy Award nominee, Gina Holmes</b><br /><br />"<i>Dead Man's Hand</i> was a perfect mixture of suspenseful and spooky. I loved all the detective stuff. It taught me how to find a murderer!" ~ <b>Abby Dellosso, daughter of author Mike Dellosso</b><br /><br />"With a plot that lassos you in, <i>Dead Man's Hand</i> is a fantastical read!" ~ <b>Laura Tatlock</b><br /><br />"I am reading this book aloud to my seventh grade english class and they absolutely love it. It is really intriguing and gets the children's' attention. (And mine) It is so hard not to read ahead because I am so engrossed in the book too! "~ <b>Goodreads</b><br /><br />The author writes for boys because educators have noted that girls consistently outperform boys in reading skills. Research bears this out. Studies reveal that the literacy gap between male and female students is both longstanding and worldwide. Since the author is male and has two sons, he writes for boys.  Girls may also enjoy this monster mysteries series.<br /><br /><b>The Monster Mysteries series contains no; sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language. </b>While this kids murder mystery series discusses things like ghosts, vampires, and zombies, it does so in a factual way.<br /><br /><h3>Paperback version makes a great summer read for a boy or girl.</h3>
