The Dragons of Heaven, Alyc Helms
1 The Dragons of Heaven
Alyc Helms UK Angry Robot 2015 0857664328 / 9780857664327 Soft cover New Book B-format 
Missy Masters inherited more than the usual genetic cocktail from her estranged grandfather. She also got his preternatural control of shadows and his enduring legacy as the legendary vigilante superhero, Mr Mystic. After a little work the costume fits OK, but Missy is far from experienced at fighting crime, so she journeys to China to seek the aid of Lung Huang, the ancient master who once guided her grandfather. She becomes embroiled in the politics of Lung Huang and his siblings, the allegedly mythical nine dragon-guardians of all creation. When Lung Di - Lung Huang's brother and mortal enemy - raises a magical barrier that cuts off China from the rest of the world, it falls to the new Mr Mystic to prove herself by taking down the barrier. It's a superhero novel, a pulp fantasy novel, with lashings of kung fu, immense kick-ass dragons and an unfailingly sympathetic heroine - yes, it's another wonderful Angry Robot title.

While waiting for him to reappear, Alex attends Akarnae Academy, Medora's boarding school for teenagers with extraordinary gifts. She soon starts to enjoy her bizarre new world and the friends who embrace her as one of their own, but strange things are happening at Akarnae, and Alex can't ignore her fear that something unexpected - something sinister - is looming. An unwilling pawn in a deadly game, Alex's shoulders bear the crushing weight of an entire race's survival. Only she can save the Medorans, but what if doing so prevents her from ever returning home? Will Alex risk her entire world - and maybe even her life - to save Medora? About the Author Lynette Noni grew up on a farm in outback Australia until she moved to the beautiful Sunshine Coast and swapped her mud-stained boots for sand-splashed flip-flops. She has always been an avid reader and most of her childhood was spent lost in daydreams of far-off places and magical worlds. She was devastated when her Hogwarts letter didn't arrive, but she consoled herself by looking inside every wardrobe she could find, and she's still determined to find her way to Narnia one day. While waiting for that to happen, she creates her own fantasy worlds and enjoys spending time with the characters she meets along the way.

When successful screenwriter Phil Hastings decided to move his family from sunny California to ramshackle farmhouse in New York state, the old Kessler place seemed like an ideal base from which to pick up the threads of his career as a novelist. But the Kessler place was originally known as Erl King Hill - 'Hill of the Elf King'. Soon Phil's wife and daughter, and their two mischievous eight-year-old boys, began to sense that strange presences were moving in the centuries-old wood that tangled around their new homd like the enchanted web of a huge, malignant spider... Faerie Tale is a major work of the imagination in which a master of modern fantasy turns his pen to the timeless worlds of ancient Celtic myth - and the unspeakable terror that lurks beneath the ordered surface of modern everyday life.
