The Spook's Blood by Joseph Delaney

The Spook series of books (also known as the Wardstone Chronicles) tells the story of Tom Ward, a seventh son, who becomes a Spook’s Apprentice, fighting supernatural evil in the County. There is a great website for the Spook Series, where you can have a look at the trailer for the movie based on the series, “Seventh Son”, which is due out in 2015.

“The Spook’s Blood” is a book packed of action, suspense and bravery. In a world full of darkness, misery and despair there is only one boy who can stop this from happening and his name is Tom Ward. Tom lives and works as a spook’s apprentice in the countryside with his master. Together they save the county from any trouble. Suddenly they are informed that trouble is being caused in another county. His master gets kidnapped and Tom must try and save him and the county from chaos. Tom finds out secrets about his past and his destiny. 
This is the 10th book from the Spooks series and it is the one that I enjoyed the most. A very thrilling book and a must read!! 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (2014) PosterYet again, Hollywood has looked to the world of books for movie ideas. The latest release is "The Maze Runner" based on the book by James Dashner. So what's it about? You can see the trailer here or, better still, read the book: 

"The Maze Runner" is about a boy called Thomas who is sent into a virtual world called the Glade with his memory washed; all he can remember is his name, Thomas. When the doors open in the lift which he is in after he has woken up, he is welcomed by a large group of children who have been dropped into the Glade one at a time every month. He is in a large, open area surrounded by stone walls. Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’re closed tight...and every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift. They knew that Thomas was coming. But the next day, a girl is sent up who is the first girl to ever to be dropped into the maze in the Glade. To their even bigger surprise there is a bigger wonder in the message she brings. Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind...I read this book about 6 months ago and I was stunned. People should read this book because you can never predict where it is going to go and it is always leaving you in suspense.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

"We're here, and then we're gone, and it's not about the time we're here, but what we do with the time." The 5th Wave is coming...Check out the first book in the series:

There have been strange happenings all over the world, ranging from power outages to the deaths of millions of innocent people. The story follows a young Cassie Sullivan on her journey to find her brother, and Ben Parish, a normal teenager, whose life is changed forever when he is taken to Camp Haven.
I may have made this sound really cheesy but TRUST ME it’s not!!!!! Please read it, it is really well written (also the bit with Ben is AMAZING).
This book is the first of a trilogy and the second one comes out in summer 2014.

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.
