              From before Christchurch was settled its cathedral has been the focus of ferocious public debate: Where should a cathedral be built? How would it be paid for? Should it be built in wood or stone? When financially perilous, should it be supported by the city? Should it be demolish...ed or should it be restored? And to whom did it really belong?

              Family, friends, secrets ... It wasn't always like this. Mila is a child of the northern bush and she has a gift. Descended from generations of healers, Mila is surrounded by a happy extended family, and delights in the sights, sounds and scents of her beloved forest, where she l...istens, learns, and runs free. Tommy-next-door is a quirky kid with a passion for bones, fossils and the bush. He doesn't see the world as others do, but nothing escapes the Bone Man. Tommy is also Mila's best friend, but she doesn't know that yet. Then Mila's life is changed forever when her little sister, Anahera, dies in a tragic accident that Mila blames herself for. The death tears the family apart but it's the events after Anahera's death where the real tragedy takes place - events with far-reaching consequences - and Mila flees to the city, far from everything and everyone she loves. When life and death are very close, their worlds hold hands. Forest and family call Mila back home where Tommy helps her piece together the broken bits of her life. Bush sanctuary, bush justice. Mila can finally wear the cloak of many cultures and fulfil the destiny whispered by her Croatian ancestors, confirmed by the rongoa Maori practitioner next door, and enhanced by the ways of modern medicine. Blood matters, but so do friends. Powerful yet tender and beautifully imagined, Mila and the Bone Man unites enduring love with the power of healing. A novel about guilt, forgiveness and finding your way home. And the secrets we keep to protect those we love the most.

              Respectable families hold on to their myths, contain the violence, uphold the Establishment. There was always going to be a story. It couldn't be overlooked, and this one will set the skeletons rattling and the gin bottles clinking up and down the country. Overall it is a story o...f survival.

              Frank Herbert's DUNE meets Ian McEwan's MACHINES LIKE ME Once upon a time in the future, things are looking grim. Plague stalks the land, people live behind city walls, or underground, or huddle in remote ham-lets. No more animals, no more birdlife, no more freedom... never has t...he divide between rich and poor been so evident, never has the Earth been so despoiled, and never has the need for a hero been stronger. Enter Chevalier, an unassuming and mild-man-nered tax inspector by day but a secret law-breaker and risk-taker by night who decides to experiment with a new virtual reality headset - CIRCE. And before he knows it, our hero finds he can dip in and out of a world long ago and far away where his deepest hopes and fears are met, where there's magic in the air, and where his spirit and bravery can emerge. Helped (and hindered) by a collection of heroes, heroines, gods, goddesses and raving beauties from ages both ancient and modern, our hero gradually takes on the spirit and bravery of the legendary Gawayn. Masks, disguise and identity are key to the journey, and Chevalier discovers he is not alone. A bold and cunning plan is called for... the evolution of Gawayn is essential. This is a fable for our times. Serious, whimsical, funny, powerful and sexy, Chevalier & Gawayn is a thrilling mix of adventure and adversity and the need to heed the past. It is also a warning of the dangers facing society, but most of all, it is a celebration of our power to face and overcome them.

              "We think you're the type of joker who would suit working undercover. No controls, out there doing deals and drinking piss."

And he still keeps a shottie under the bed.
