This mysterious alien artefact may hold the secret to peace on the red planet. Both the Governor and rebel colonists seek Zeke’s help. But which side should he trust?

As old foes return, the conflict rapidly escalates. Zeke discovers that nowhere, not even his beloved school for psychics, is safe from the warfare. But is there a deeper conspiracy at work?

Preorders will be available soon.

Chaos’ latest game is positively epic. Just look at the trailer: the hero Bastion Axestone striding through the city streets, fireballs exploding around him and zombies staggering in his wake. Seb can’t wait to play it. He downloads the works. Explosive effects, 3D upgrade, heavy metal soundtrack and a subliminal quotient—whatever that is.

But the next day, Seb and his friends wake up to an apocalypse. Their teachers are missing in action, coach doesn’t come to practice, and Seb’s dad spends all day in his pyjamas. Even worse, not only has Mum not been in to work, she hasn’t bothered to brush her teeth. It’s beginning to look as if every grown-up in Bridgetown—possibly the entire world—has been zombified. They’re obsessed with their personal electronic devices and it’s all Seb’s fault because he’s the one who downloaded the game in the first place. Now, he has to fix it. But how? It’s not as if he can un-download the game. Along with his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, Seb has to figure out how to reverse the effect of the computer virus. But in the meantime, the zombies need feeding, Seb’s little sister, Ava, needs minding, and someone has to walk the dog…

New Release: Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean

penultimate curtis creed front cover

It is with great pleasure we announce the release of Rebecca Fraser‘s debut novel, Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean, a young teen story. We had a wonderful book launch in Mornington, VIC today, with all the books sold out.

In the coastal Queensland town of Midnight Cove, thirteen-year-old Curtis Creed’s world is falling apart.

Once a talented upcoming surfer, he cannot bring himself to return to the ocean.  His inability to overcome his fear earns him the ridicule of his older brother, Dylan. Worse, his family is struggling to cope with the loss of their father in a rock fishing accident.

The summer holiday looks long and lonely for Curtis until he meets Navaya, a mysterious sea dweller he rescues from fishing line in a rock pool.

When Curtis agrees to help Navaya find the Moami, the key to an undersea cavern hiding her people’s most precious secrets, he embarks on a dangerous quest that sees him join forces with awkward but brilliant new girl in town, Morgan.

Will Curtis be able to overcome his fears to return the Moami to its rightful owners before Navaya’s enemies succeed in their deadly mission? Was his father’s death really an accident? And what exactly is the lore of the ocean?

Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean can be purchased from all good bricks and mortar stores, and online.
