Join Trent Jamieson, author of Day Boy, in conversation with Jodi McAlister (Valentine) and Maria Lewis (Who's Afraid Too?). 

Day Boy by Trent Jamieson:

Mark is a Day Boy.

In a post-traumatic future the Masters—formerly human, now practically immortal—rule a world that bends to their will and a human population upon which they feed. Invincible by night, all but helpless by day, each relies on his Day Boy to serve and protect him.

Mark has been lucky in his Master: Dain has treated him well. But as he grows to manhood and his time as a Day Boy draws to a close, there are choices to be made.

Will Mark undergo the Change and become, himself, a Master—or throw in his lot with his fellow humans? As the tensions in his conflicted world reach crisis point, Mark’s decision may be crucial.

In Day Boy Trent Jamieson reimagines the elements of the vampire myth in a wholly original way. This is a beautifully written and surprisingly tender novel about fathers and sons, and what it may mean to become a man. Or to remain one.

Valentine by Jodie McAlister:

Strange and terrible things begin to happen to four teenagers – all born on the same Valentine’s Day. One of these teenagers is the Valentine: a Seelie fairy changeling swapped for a human child at its birth. The Unseelie have come to kill the Valentine – except they don’t know who it is.

Pearl shares a birthday with Finn Blacklin. She’s known him all her life and disliked every second of it. Now Pearl and Finn must work together to protect themselves from the sinister forces that are seeking them out.

But there's one more problem: the explosive chemistry between them...

Who's Afraid Too? by Maria Lewis:

Tommi Grayson: all bark, all bite . . . and now she's BACK!

After the sh*t show that was her family reunion, Tommi needed to get gone. She's spent the last few weeks trying to understand her heritage - the one that comes with a side order of fur as well as her Maori history and how she can connect to it. 

But she can only escape for so long - when an unspeakable evil, thought long destroyed, returns, Tommi needs every bit of the skills she's learned. With the help of allies both old and new, she's going to take the fight to the enemy...

A fresh, new urban fantasy for fans of Darynda Jones, Patricia Briggs and Keri Arthur
