The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

"When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder— much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air." 
The "Mortal Instruments" series has been very popular with our readers - and there are now six bestselling books in the series. Have a look at the author's website for more excellent information about this series and read our pupil review here:
  This story centres on a fifteen year-old girl named Clary Fray who lives in New York with her mum and her best friend Simon. Clary is just a typical teenager until one night when she goes to a club with Simon. There she watches as three mysterious people with weird black tattoos murder someone, then continues to watch as the murder evidence, including the body, just disappears. Soon after, Clary's mum mysteriously disappears and she is attacked by a lizard-demon like thing. Narrowly avoiding death, she is soon tossed into a whole new world that she was never able to see until now. She meets the three teens who "murdered" the "boy", including a very handsome one named Jace. She learns that they are Shadow-hunters, secret warriors of both human and angel blood with the job of ridding the world of demons. Also add in the fact that they walk the earth with Downworlders, who include Vampires, Werewolves, Fairies, and Warlocks. Clary's life is soon intertwined into a mystical off balance that involves a dark and dangerous Shadow-hunter named Valentine and the search for a mystical cup.
I recommend this series because it is so interesting and if you like reading adult fantasy books you will fall in love with these books as I did.

The Set-Up by Sophie McKenzie

Sophie McKenzie is one of the many authors coming to the Edinburgh Book Festival this year. Sophie has written many great books; including the Medusa Project series, the Girl Missing series and many more. Have a look at Sophie’s website for more information. This review is for the first book in the Medusa Project series, “The Setup”:

The Medusa Project series is all about four teenagers who have different psychic powers. In the first book we hear from a boy called Nico’s point of view as he discovers his special power. It has mystery in it as he discovers the other people he knows also have powers that are just emerging. There is romance as Nico tries to wow over the girl of his dreams. It is an awesome sci-fi story. I would seriously recommend this to others and anyone who likes sci-fi or if you like mystery stories. My opinion is that it has awesome plot twists, amazing characters and a fantastic plot.

Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz

The tenth book in the Alex Rider series, "Russian Roulette", was recently released in paperback and we're looking forward to reading this explosive prequel to the series. You can see the trailer for the book and read an excerpt on the Alex Rider website as well as reading our pupil review:
"Russian Roulette" by Anthony Horowitz is a prequel to the Alex Rider series but focuses on the life story of a Russian contract killer, Yassen Gregorovich. He has been given orders to assassinate 14 year-old spy, Alex Rider. Yassen begins to remember when he was 14 and what has happened since then. When it returns to modern times Yassen thinks of his next target and what secrets he knows about the boy’s past. This book is a gripping action and you begin to feel for the characters and Yassen’s dilemma.
