When we last saw her, Aileana Kameron, the Falconer, disappeared through the fae portal that she was trying to close forever. When she escapes and reenters the human world, she finds her beloved city—indeed, the entire world—has been destroyed, and the fae world itself is slowly dying. Somehow Aileana is the key to preserving both worlds—but how? This much-anticipated second chapter in the Falconer trilogy "combines vivid world-building with action-packed fight sequences" (School Library Journal) "and a cliffhanger ending ensures that readers will follow Aileana to the very end of this trilogy" (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books).

Scorn the witch. Fear the witch. Burn the witch. History is filled with stories of women accused of witchcraft, of fearsome girls with arcane knowledge. Toil & Trouble features fifteen stories of girls embracing their power, reclaiming their destinies and using their magic to create, to curse, to cure—and to kill. A young witch uses social media to connect with her astrology clients—and with a NASA-loving girl as cute as she is skeptical. A priestess of death investigates a ritualized murder. A bruja who cures lovesickness might need the remedy herself when she falls in love with an altar boy. A theater production is turned upside down by a visiting churel. In Reconstruction-era Texas, a water witch uses her magic to survive the soldiers who have invaded her desert oasis. And in the near future, a group of girls accused of witchcraft must find their collective power in order to destroy their captors. This collection reveals a universal truth: there’s nothing more powerful than a teenage girl who believes in herself.

Seven Devils is a brilliantly gripping space opera - rebels, an evil empire, and more snappy dialogue than Firefly - for fans of Rogue One, Anne Leckie, and Becky Chambers. It's fast pacaed, furious, with a strong cast of women and a gripping world. Eris and Clo are two resistance fighters for a rebel group, caught up in a battle to put a stop to the pitiless Tholosian Empire conquering planet after planet, ruling people via a mind-control programme called the Oracle. The rebels don't have the same resources as the Empire, but what they do have is Eris - or, Princess Discordia as she was once known, heir to the Empire, until she faked her own death and decided to dedicate her life to destroying her family. Clo despises Eris for who she was, but they are forced to team up when they find a ship containing three women - each of whom claims to have escaped from the Empire, with secret knowledge of how to bring it down. But can they trust them?
