She sleeps, a pale girl in a white room . . .
Three years ago, Gabe saw his daughter taken. In the back of a rusty old car, covered in bumper stickers. He was driving behind the car. He watched her disappear. But no one believes him. Most people believe that his daughter, and wife, are dead. For a while, people believed that Gabe was responsible.
The Other People is told from three main perspectives—Gabe, Fran and Katie. Three people with their own distinct stories that will become inextricably and insidiously linked along the way, although I could never have guessed how. And then there’s the sleeping girl in a white room…

Fallon Swift has spent all her life preparing for this moment. No longer can she stand by whilst her fellow Magicks are hunted by the fanatical Purity Warriors or rounded up and experimented on by the government.
Fallon must follow her destiny to restore the magical shield that once protected them all. The final battle has begun…
Twenty years ago when a deadly pandemic was unleashed upon the world, destroying civilisation, a child was conceived. She, who would come to be known as The One, was destined to fulfil a prophecy and lead the light against the dark.
On the shield, one of seven forged in the timeless past to hold back the dark, fell a single drop of blood.
So the shield weakened, and the dark, spider-patient, waited as the decades passed, and the wound spread under grass and ground.
And on the last day of what had been, a good man, in all innocence, broke the shield open. The dark rewarded him with a deadly infection, one that would pass from man to wife, from parent to child, from stranger to stranger.

EVERYONE KNOWS DAISY JONES AND THE SIX.
They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy.
But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.
This was something completely different for me. Daisy Jones & The Six features a fictional (although completely believable) 70s rock band, from the inception through to the split.
