  • Aspiring
    Sixteen-year-old Ricky has a part time job in a cafe in a South Island town being transformed by tourism. Over several months, as Ricky bicycles through the town and his daily round, we bear witness to his friendships, the trial and hilarity of school, his stirrings for prickly Keri, the mystery of Mr Le Clair and his Cadillac, and the truth of his small family's sadness. Aspiring is a wonderfully surprising YA novel from one of New Zealand's most significant writers. Damien Wilkins's comically poignant narrative showcases his considerable gifts for character and dialogue, and his wry take on human drives and frailties; for the first time, though, his focus is on a Kiwi boy in the full internal riot and uncertainty of adolescence.

  • Aurora Burning
    Aurora Burning
    Our heroes are back. Kind of.

    First, the bad news: an ancient evil - you know, your standard consume-all-life-in-the-galaxy deal - is about to be unleashed. The good news? Squad 312 is standing by to save the day. They've just got to take care of a few small distractions first.

    Like the clan of gremps who'd like to rearrange their favourite faces. And the cadre of illegit GIA agents with creepy flowers where their eyes used to be, who'll stop at nothing to get their hands on Auri. Then there's Kal's long-lost sister, who's not exactly happy to see her baby brother, and has a Syldrathi army at her back. With half the known galaxy on their tails, Squad 312 has never felt so wanted.

    When they learn the Hadfield has been found, it's time to come out of hiding. Two centuries ago the colony ship vanished, leaving Auri as its sole survivor. Now, its black box might be what saves them - but time is short, and if Auri can't learn to master her powers as a Trigger, the squad and all their admirers are going to be deader than the Great Ultrasaur of Abraaxis IV.

    Shocking revelations, bank heists, mysterious gifts, inappropriately tight bodysuits and an epic firefight will determine the fate of the Aurora Legion's most unforgettable heroes - and maybe the rest of the galaxy as well.

    THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games. On returning to the world of The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins said, "With this book, I wanted to explore the state of nature, who we are, and what we perceive is required for our survival. The reconstruction period ten years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days-as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet-provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity."
