              Set in the near future, this first book in a fast-paced trilogy will hook you in from the first page. Violet Black and Ethan Wright are both in a coma. They have never met- I couldn't speak, but I was trying so hard to communicate and then . . . then . . . I pushed. And something..., someone, pushed back. Her name is Violet. Violet, but she is sunshine-yellow, and I need to find her because I think she might be just like me. But there is a far more serious reason that Ethan must find Violet- the sinister Foundation is trying to hunt them down. Reviews of Eileen's previous books- 'A Trio of Sophies doesn't so much as start as launch the reader into the centre of a storm that will hold you until the very last secret is solved. . . . ' - Weekend Herald on A Trio of Sophies 'Merriman writes what teenagers want to read, and she certainly knows how to write it well.' - NZ Books on Invisibly Breathing 'The beauty of it is that Merriman just seems to be able to cut straight to the intensity of a relationship, or a first relationship - the anguish, drama, the second guessing and the doubt, and the pure electricity of those first physical encounters' - Radio NZ on Catch Me When You Fall 'I found it to be compelling, challenging, and heartbreaking, but very real. It handles teen issues with grace and sensitivity but doesn't shy away from honesty.' - Tots to Teens on Pieces of You

              A gripping medical drama from the bestselling author of The Silence of Snow. Would you want to know what awaits you? Would you want to be in control of your life . . . and death? What would you do for love? Sooner or later, willingly or unwillingly, he's going to leave you . . . ...The words cut deep. Emily knows Jake is not like his father, he'd never leave her willingly. But if he has inherited the tainted genes of his mother, then Huntington's disease is more than likely to take him away. He may even make the same request his mother made when Jake Heremaia was still a teenager- to end the suffering for good . . . Reviews of her previous novel- 'She has struck on a particular minor key that rings across each page, clear and sharp and quick. It makes you want to listen close. It makes you uncomfortable . . . She writes grief and shock and death, particularly death, with an acute sense of familiarity - an ache. She writes love with a sweet ache, too, from the electric first bite right through to the bittersweet bedding-in. Love, urgent and invigorating, crackles across The Silence of Snow.' - Spinoff 'I cried actual page-blurring tears reading the latest novel by Auckland writer Eileen Merriman. . . . It's a drama that tackles some serious themes.' - Newsroom

              THE SECOND RIVETING BOOK IN THE FAST-PACED BLACK SPIRAL TRILOGY. Back from Germany and the assignment that went horribly wrong, Violet doesn't know who to trust- it's fortunate for me that the Foundation staff can't read my thoughts. . . If they could read my thoughts, they'd nev...er let me go. I'd be a liability, and I know what happens to liabilities. Phoenix is equally adrift- For an hour I will forget who I am, what I have done . . . But . . . I will wake with the heavy knowledge that I am the Black Wolf, never to be trusted, never to be loved - because the only people I've ever loved are either dead or hate my guts. The only thing both of them know for sure is that they have to escape the Foundation's clutches . . .

              A compelling love story about facing one's demons, self-medication and finding the strength to carry on, even when it seems that all is lost. Almost qualified as an anaesthetic consultant, Rory McBride is adrift. Since a routine anaesthetic went horribly wrong, he has been plague...d by sleeplessness, flashbacks, and escalating panic attacks. Jodi Waterstone has only just started work as a first-year doctor at the same hospital in Nelson, and the night shifts, impossible workload and endless hours on duty make learning the multiple new procedures difficult. Both are trying to keep in control of their lives, but Rory starts to self-prescribe sleeping pills and sedatives to help him get through the nights . . . and the days, especially when having to administer anaesthetics to children in theatre. Before long, the sedatives aren't enough and he begins to inject propofol, a potent anaesthetic agent. Can Jodi save him from himself?
