Second Skin

 

The moon was being devoured.


Estranged from birth and raised on tales of the great mountain castle of Idrith-Core, where her distant father serves as Lord Commander and confidante of the King, Aledra Jewel-Wing was now going there to court.


As one of the Drakkoni, a race of powerful shape-shifters and conquerors of a wild land, she joins her stepmother at the festival for all peoples. But when in attempting to save a life, Aledra shifts into her Drakkoni Secondskin – her beautiful soul-double: a fearsome creature with flaming breath – she breaks an ancient oath, and the tremulous peace between the Drakkoni and Esrans is shattered.


Branded a fugitive, hunted by her father, and aided in escape by the master-mancer who raised her, Aledra begins a journey for survival across a war-torn continent.

 


We Other

 

Family secrets, changelings, and fairies you never want to meet on a dark night.



Jess Morgan’s life has always been chaotic.

When a startling new reality cannot be denied, it’s clear that everything she believed about herself is a lie. She is linked to a world where humans – ‘hot-bloods’ – are disposable entertainment. Life on a run-down estate – her single mum’s alcoholism and violent boyfriend – become the least of Jess’s worries.

 

We Other is Sue's first book for teens and adults. 

Sue says, 'This book was inspired by my love of traditional fairy tales and UK folklore. It's an urban thriller with an unusual edge and will keep you guessing. You wouldn't want to meet the fairies in this book on a dark night!'

Praise for We Other


Sue Bentley’s dark, sensual, magical story will catch you in the gut, move your heart and set your imagination on fire. It’s unmissable.’ Thea Bennett, Radio Times.


I absolutely adored this book, it was like a dark faerie tale with a modern twist and mix, blending fantasy with social factors and creating a brilliant and absorbing story. This is a book that I would highly recommend to not only YA fantasy readers but also to those who like fantasy and paranormal mystery. A great way to escape for a few hours. Yvonne - Goodreads


‘This is a book to really immerse yourself in. By the end you won’t be able to help feeling that you know Jess, and that you have spent time in the world of Faery yourself.’ Helen Walters – Writing Magazine Columnist.
