Valentine

Sarah J. Maas meets Holly Black with an OzYA twist. Valentine is the first book in Jodi McAlister’s page-turning paranormal YA series featuring Pearl Linford and Finn Blacklin.

Strange and terrible things begin to happen to four teenagers – all born on the same Valentine’s Day. One of these teenagers is the Valentine: a Seelie fairy changeling swapped for a human child at its birth. The Unseelie have come to kill the Valentine – except they don’t know who it is.

Pearl shares a birthday with Finn Blacklin. She’s known him all her life and disliked every second of it. But now Pearl and Finn must work together to pro

“I read this book knowing nothing about it, I didn’t even read the blurb because I like to read blind – I want to discover things as the writer intended – for me, this is the ultimate reading experience. Valentine delivered! I laughed, cried, gasped, fell in love, held my breath and sat on the edge of my seat. I read late into the night because I couldn’t put it down. The only good thing about finishing this book is knowing that another follows it. Valentine is the first book of a series and I can’t wait to read the next. I highly recommend this book.”

“Fans of urban fantasy aged 13 years and up will find themselves quite at home with this debut novel from Jodi McAlister.”

— Books + Publishing

What can I say? That was a helluva ride! This is the first Urban Fantasy book I’ve ever read from an Australian young adult author, and I’m pleased to say that I thoroughly enjoy it! I spent the entire day reading this book and I was completely drawn in from the start.

— Grace, Goodreads

A vibrant mix of action, romance and YA wit, with lashings of faery lore transplanted into an Australian setting.

— Ellie Marney, acclaimed author of Every Breath and White Night

“Traditional fairy lore is transplanted into a small-town Australian location in Jodi McAlister’s debut novel, Valentine, and given a thoroughly contemporary spin… A fast-paced, high-energy story with romance, action, moderate amounts of gore and old-school scary fairy-folk.”

— Leanne Hall, Readins

Valentine was such a gripping, intense book that [it] was impossible to put down and I was constantly on the edge of my seat trying to work out how everything was going to piece together. The romance between our two main characters was adorable and swoon-worthy, and I loved how they worked together and made this adventure as intense and exciting as it was. If you’re a fan of urban fantasy and are looking for a new and unique Aussie YA series to sink your teeth into, I highly recommend reading Valentine!

Ironheart

Ironheart

Sarah J. Maas meets Holly Black with an OzYA twist. Ironheart is the second page-turning book in Jodi McAlister’s thrilling Valentine series.

Pearl Linford is stuck. Her best friend won’t talk to her. The internet thinks she is a murderer. And she’s waiting for the right moment to forgive Finn Blacklin, but it never seems to come.
On top of this, Unseelie fairies have infiltrated her town, and they’ve unleashed a new horror – a bunch of wild, uncontrollable, angry supernatural hunters, who’ve made Finn number one on their hit list.
And you know what? That’s a lot for one seventeen-year-old girl to handle. No wonder Pearl is so full of rage all the time. A rage that might be drawing the attention of some very dangerous people.

“So go and grab yourself this series if you haven’t read it yet and be like me and many others wishing that 2019 would hurry up so we can have book 3.”

— JESSICA'S BOOKWORLD

“Ironheart enticed me from the beginning until the very last page. It takes a talented supernatural fantasy storyteller to create a narrative with a perfect blend of suspense, romance, surprise, humour and the unexpected… Gripping, clever and delivers at every turn. Counting the days to the final instalment.”

— www.kids-bookreview.com

“A smart, fast-paced paranormal that fans of Holly Black will enjoy… Pearl is a gutsy heroine who is determined that she won’t rely on a Prince Charming to come to her rescue… she will do the rescuing herself… Engrossing.”

— readplus

“An exciting, edgy, action-filled adventure – a dark faerie tale set in the Australian bush. This is not the kind of book you just put down… it might come after you.”

But Pearl Linford is not having that. It’s time for a rescue mission. Pearl told Finn she was coming to get him and she’s not going to let anyone in her way.
