Demon Road - Derek Landy

  Landy is back and Landy is good. He gets the story rolling quick off the mark begins to enthrall us in his new series. It's set away from Skulduggery Pleasant (Which did end quite 'unusually' remember?) and into the world of demons! (Hence the name)

  Possibly like many teenagers, at times Amber Lamont thinks that her parents can be monsters. To rephrase it and say it how it is in the book, her parents are monsters. And they are chasing her all over the U.S. so that they can eat her. And they are very, very, evil. (Did I say very?) And her only means of getting out of this mess is a man who very well might be a mass murderer who really is on the highway to hell. Yep, as the cover suggests, she's having a hell of a time...

  As the first book in a new collection of books, it can be difficult to see just how good a series  will turn out to be. We already know that Derek Landy can write a lot of books for one series, after all, he turned out 9 excellent novels for Skulduggery Pleasant plus 3 extra books to accompany the series. Will Demon Road become as good as Pleasent? Honestly, I don't know. I think that from the first book, Landy will have to add a lot more to the series to be able to take it as far as his first series. However we do know that he is a brilliant writer and has some really good, solid ideas for books.

9/10 Oh and one last thing- there may also be vampires...

The Mermaid's Sister - Carrie Anne Noble

This book is quite surreal at times and is overall very good. Sometimes it is difficult to work out some things in the story but everything does become clear at the end of the novel. The book is set in Victorian times but it seems to be mostly timeless and it's time period didn't really affect the novel for me and it wasn't something that I thought about much whilst I read the book.

  The plot is rather good and it is written very cleverly. One of Nobles' strong points is her ability to create very real characters. She does this so well that at the end of the book you can almost sense the characters reactions and emotions to different events before they come which makes the author very skilled at her craft.

The Periodic Table: A Field Guide to the Elements - Paul Parsons and Gail Dixon

The periodic table was originally thought in the early 1860's, as a way of organising new elements found by scientists, the table was redesigned a number of times by different scientists to sort elements in different ways. Eventually, they came up with the system that we have today, which you will see in science when you learn it at school or college etc.

  The book is a work of non-fiction and is designed to teach you about each singular element found in the modern periodic table, the book has a factfile of each substance accompanied with a very detailed overview of it. The book is full of wonderful ultra high definiton images which make the work seem fresh and gives it an extra sense of quality.

  The book really does teach you an awful lot about the elements, from Carbon to Einsteinium. Any budding scientist would love to add this to their collection I'm sure, the book is really interesting and is good for reading through thouroughly, just flicking through now and then or…
