The reluctant assassin is Riley, a Victorian boy who is suddenly plucked from his own time and whisked into the twenty-first century, accused of murder and on the run. Riley has been pulled into the FBI’s covert W.A.R.P. operation (Witness Anonymous Relocation Program). He and young FBI Agent Chevie Savano are forced to flee terrifying assassin-for-hire Albert Garrick, who pursues Riley through time and will not stop until he has hunted him down. Barely staying one step ahead, Riley and Chevie must stay alive and stop Garrick returning to his own time with knowledge and power that could change the world forever.

The day after twelve-year-old Jack McKinley is told he has six months to live, he awakens on a mysterious island, where a secret organization promises to save his life – but with one condition. With his three friends, Jack must lead a mission to retrieve seven lost magical orbs, which, only when combined together, can save their lives. The challenge: the orbs have been missing for a thousand years, lost among the ruins and relics of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. With no one else to turn to and no escape in sight, the four friends have no choice but to undertake the quest. First stop: The Colossus of Rhodes … where they realise that there’s way more at stake than just their lives.
The Colossus Rises is the first book in Peter Lerangis’ action-packed new series called Seven Wonders. It has been described as ‘Percy Jackson meets Eragon’ and it sounds really exciting. You might recognise Peter Lerangis as one of the authors of The 39 Clues series.

Six Days by Philip Webb is a very cool book that I’m reading at the moment. It’s set in a future London where the city is being torn down to hunt for a mysterious ‘artefact’ that is incredibly valuable. If you like books like The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld then Six Days is the book for you.
Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver is one of the fantastic books I’m reading at the moment. It’s a really magical book and one of those stories that you can get lost in.

Skulduggery Pleasant is one of my favourite book characters and I always look forward to his latest battle against the forces of evil. Luckily I only have to wait a few more weeks as the sixth book, Death Bringer is due out in New Zealand on September 1. I can’t wait to be reunited with Skulduggery, Valkyrie, Ghastly and Tanith.
If you haven’t read any of the Skulduggery Pleasant books by Derek Landy I highly recommend them. They’re filled with action, mystery, thrills, chills, brilliant characters and perfectly-timed humour. If you want a taste of this awesome series, here’s the book trailer:
