Amie Kaufman – The Isles of the Gods

Magic, romance, and slumbering gods clash in the first of a riveting fantasy duology spanning gangsters’ dens, forgotten temples, and the high seas from the New York Times bestselling author of the Illuminae Files and the Aurora Cycle, Amie Kaufman.

Angeline Boulley – Warrior Girl Unearthed

Warrior Girl Unearthed is the highly anticipated second novel from the bestselling author of Firekeeper’s Daughter.

When Perry learns about “Warrior Girl”, a Native American ancestor whose bones are stored in the museum archives, she is determined to return Warrior Girl to her tribe – even if that means organising a daring heist with a bunch of misfits…

Xiran Jay Zhao* Heavenly Tyrant (Iron Widow 2)

Heavenly Tyrant is the highly anticipated sequel to the No. 1 bestselling Iron Widow.

After suffering devastating loss, Zetian finds herself at the seat of power in Huaxia. But her world is not as it seems, and revelations about an enemy more daunting than she imagined forces her to share her power with a dangerous man.

Author Xiran Jay Zhao will answer some burning reader questions, ahead of the release of the sequel in 2023!


All are welcome to this event – tickets are £2 and all proceeds (minus VAT + Eventbrite Fees) will go to Give A Book UK, who promote books and the pleasure of reading in the hardest to reach places. Their core belief is that to pass on a good read – to give a book – is a transaction of lasting worth. They work in prisons, schools and with disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK

*Please note that Xiran Jay Zhao will not be live
