New Author signed by Strange Chemistry
New YA imprint Strange Chemistry announced this week that they have signed Bryony Pearce. Well know for her award-winnning 2011 novel Angel’s Fury, Bryony is working on new book which will be published in Autumn 2013 through the test-tube wielding publisher. The Weight of Souls sounds fantastic and thanks to the publisher you can read the summary below. 

16 year old Taylor Oh is cursed: if she is touched by the ghost of a murder victim then they pass a mark beneath her skin. She has three weeks to find their murderer and pass the mark to them – letting justice take place and sending them into the Darkness. And if she doesn’t make it in time? The Darkness will come for her… She spends her life trying to avoid ghosts, make it through school where she’s bullied by popular Justin and his cronies, keep her one remaining friend, and persuade her father that this is real and that she’s not going crazy.
And then Justin is murdered and everything gets a whole lot worse. Justin doesn’t know who killed him, so there’s no obvious person for Taylor to go after. The clues she has lead her to the V Club, a vicious secret society at her school where no one is allowed to leave… And where Justin was dared to do the stunt which led to his death. Can she find out who was responsible for his murder before the Darkness comes for her? Can she put aside her hatred for her former bully to truly help him? And what happens if she starts to fall for him?

The Assembly Room by Bryony Allen Trailer

This is the trailer for Bryony Allen’s new book, The Assembly Room, coming October 12th. It looks like it’ll be a great book and I can’t wait to read it, I’ve heard very good things about Bryony’s other books but not yet got round to reading them, hopefully soon! 
Goodreads Summary: The ghosts of The Assembly Room have been waiting for someone to unlock their secrets, and Merryn Stearne has arrived.
For 14 year old Merryn, the future should have been perfect – a new home in the idyllic Suffolk countryside and romance with the gorgeous boy next door, Jamie. If only the past would stop interfering with the present. Dreams of medieval witchcraft trials become terrifyingly real and Merryn realises there is a mystery to be solved. With Jamie’s help, she uncovers the truth about her ancestor’s role in the Suffolk witch hunts of 1645.
But can they stop the curse that threatens to ruin the Stearne family once again, or are the forces of the past too strong?
