Masters of Death von Olivie Blake

Masters of Death

Olivie Blake

From the internationally bestselling author of The Atlas Six, Masters of Death by Olivie Blake is a gripping, page-turning fantasy with vampires, ghosts and death itself.

'Olivie Blake is a mind-blowing talent' - Chloe Gong, author of These Violent Delights

This book is about an estate agent. Only she’s a vampire, the house on sale is haunted, and its ghost was murdered.

When Viola Marek hires Fox D’Mora to deal with her ghost-infested mansion, she expects a competent medium. But unbeknownst to Viola, Fox is a fraud – despite being the godson of Death.

As the mystery unfolds, Viola and Fox are drawn into a quest that neither wants nor expects. They'll need the help of a demonic personal trainer, a sharp-voiced angel and a love-stricken reaper. And it transpires that the difference between a mysterious lost love and a dead body isn’t nearly as distinct as you’d hope.

This edition features beautiful interior illustrations from Little Chmura.

'Coolly horrific, brilliantly brainy and utterly compelling' - Daily Mail on The Atlas Six

Fourth Wing

Rebecca Yarros

'Brutal games, grumpy dragons, sizzling sexual tension . . . a fantasy like you've never read before' - JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT

'As compelling as it is deadly . . . Fourth Wing is dazzling' - NALINI SINGH

'A wild, sexy, rollercoaster of a ride' - MARY E. PEARSON

'Utterly immersive, fiercely romantic, and unforgivably addictive' - LYNETTE NONI

Dragons, war and Hunger Games-esque trials. Fourth Wing is a high-stakes, enemies-to-lovers fantasy romance perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Sarah J Maas and dark academia.


Welcome to the brutal and elite world of Basgiath War College, where everyone has an agenda, and every night could be your last . . .

Twenty-year-old Violet Sorrengail was supposed to enter the Scribe Quadrant, living a quiet life among books and history. Now, the commanding general - also known as her tough-as-talons mother - has ordered Violet to join the hundreds of candidates striving to become the elite of Navarre: dragon riders.

But when you're smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, death is only a heartbeat away . . . because dragons don't bond to 'fragile' humans. They incinerate them.

With fewer dragons willing to bond than cadets, most would kill Violet to better their own chances of success. The rest would kill her just for being her mother's daughter - like Xaden Riorson, the most powerful and ruthless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant.

She'll need every edge her wits can give her just to see the next sunrise.

Yet, with every day that passes, the war outside grows more deadly, the kingdom's protective wards are failing, and the death toll continues to rise. Even worse, Violet begins to suspect leadership is hiding a terrible secret.

Alliances will be forged. Lives will be lost. Traitors will become allies . . . or even lovers. But sleep with one eye open because once you enter, there are only two ways out: graduate or die.

Discover the personal connection in fantasy and sci-fi novels

Many fantasy and sci-fi novels may take place in an imaginary world inhabited by weird and wonderful creatures or dominated by overriding technology. But many stories are deeply rooted in the human experience and personal connections. So, while hard sci-fi books, where technology, robots or machines take centre stage are usually the first thing readers imagine the genre to be, there are many soft sci-fi stories that are led by inspiring characters battling against the negative effects and consequences of their worlds.

The sci-fi and fantasy universe is expanding

Like many other types of literature such as crime and thrillers, fantasy and sci-fi novels can be divided into many sub-genres including

  • Epic & fighting fantasy books – are stories on a grand scale which have many characters and several interwoven plots. Examples include J R R Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy and George R R Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.
  • Space Operas – are similar to epic fantasy, these are books that have science fiction at their core, with the narrative spanning multiple planets, species, and storylines. Dune by Frank Herbert and The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov are classic space operas.
  • Classic sci-fi books – 1984 by George Orwell and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, to name just two, have transcended the genre to become fiction books that appeal to a wide audience.
  • Dystopian books – take place in a future where society has broken down and social norms no longer apply, such as in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Some dystopian novels could even be classified as horror sci-fi books.
  • Romance fantasy books – usually have a narrative where the fantasy takes a supporting role to human interaction, probably the most famous being The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
  • Comedic sci-fi books – like Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels or Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy have become bestsellers that show sci-fi and fantasy novels can have a humorous side.
