SALT & STONE reviews tour!
Contenders, ready! We're celebrating the release of Victoria Scott's SALT & STONE with a six-date tour, comprising entirely of reviews from some fabulous bloggers. SALT & STONE is the hotly-anticipated sequel to last year's FIRE & FLOOD, the first book in Victoria's series. A modern-day survival story packed with action, survival and - of course - Pandoras, this is definitely a must-read for all fans of YA!
One hundred and twenty-two began. Only sixty-four remain.
Tella's made it through the first terrains of the Brimstone Bleed - but the contest isn't over yet. If she wants to save her brother, she must face oceans and icy mountains, all for the chance of winning the Cure.
And even if Tella survives these deadly places, the greatest threat will still be her fellow Contenders - even the ones she trusts the most ...

VENDETTA BLOG TOUR
Today we're kicking off Catherine Doyle's blog tour for her thrilling YA romance VENDETTA! Romeo and Juliet meets The Godfather, VENDETTA is a gritty, romantic and totally compelling story you won't want to miss!
For Sophie, it's a long dull summer in the Chicago suburbs until five mysterious brothers move into her neighbourhood. A chance encounter with one of them leaves her breathless. But all is not what it seems.
As the secrets of Nic's Sicilian heritage emerge and Sophie falls deeper into his world, her own family skeletons come to life. Caught up in a twisted game of revenge between two warring dynasties, the choice between love and family suddenly comes at a deadly price.
