Claire's hunt for answers leads her to solving another mystery that's long been puzzling her: Why do vampires live so far out in a sunny desert when they're sensitive to sunlight? The answer has nothing to do with sunlight, but with water - and an ancient enemy who has finally found a way to invade the vampires' landlocked community. Vampires aren't the top predator on earth.

It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice, in just four days time. Can the trio succeed on this deadly mission - and what must they sacrifice in order to survive? This book is suitable for children aged 9 and up.

Synopsis: Another deliciously squirmy story about Harry the Poisonous Centipede, with all of Lynne Reid Banks’s usual charm and humour.

He almost jumped into the air with fright…’ When Harry the poisonous centipede’s best friend, George, goes missing, Harry goes to find him. But dangerous things lurk outside his nest-tunnel, like flying swoopers, belly crawlers, furry biters and – most terrifying of all – Hoo-Mins! This book is suitable for a wide age range, as a ‘bedtime’ story or self-read.
