A hilarious fantasy sequel to The Dark Lord of Derkholm, set at the University after the ‘fantasy world' tours have stopped, and centred around six students (one a Griffin) and the bumbling new University Head Wizard. From the ‘Godmother of Fantasy', Diana Wynne Jones. The Year of the Griffin is the sequel to The Dark Lord of Derkholm, set in the same world several years after the abolition of commercial ‘fantasy world' tourism from our world. The University now aims to produce competent wizards to repair the damage caused by the tours. It's broke, and out of date in terms of what it teaches. The new head, Wizard Corkoran, is obsessed with becoming the first man to visit the moon, and so is mostly preoccupied, and the new faculty is mostly inexperienced. Wizard Corkoran has selected children from wealthy families to fill his own first-year classes, hoping to beg for money. But his students turn out to be more than he expected in oh-so-many ways, and despite the incompetence of their teacher, it falls to them to save the university… and themselves. 1. Language: English.

June Jenson is back, and she’s in more trouble than ever. Still adjusting to her family's recent exoneration from the archaeological world (they stole an artifact, caused a ruckus...it's a long story), June decides to embark on a press tour to repair the image of her employer (Oxford University) and her (somewhat crazy, but altogether lovable) grandfather. When the opportunity arises to go to America to find a lost treasure belonging to the notorious outlaw Butch Cassidy, June know's it isn't something she can shy away from - even if she wasn't exactly the one who was assigned by Oxford to the task. Along with the Professor Dr. Cooke and her emotionally stilted boyfriend, Griffin, June embarks on a treasure hunt in the wild mountains of Colorado. June hopes to make the discovery of a lifetime...that is, before anyone at Oxford realizes she's left the country. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Helen Taylor.

The plague raging through London in 1665 has emptied the city. The only people left are those too poor to flee or those who selflessly struggle to control the contagion and safeguard the capital's future. Amongst them, though, are those prepared to risk their health for money - those who sell dubious 'cures' and hawk food at wildly inflated prices. Also amongst them are those who hold in their hands the future of the city's most iconic building - St Paul's Cathedral. The handsome edifice is crumbling from decades of neglect and indecision, giving the current custodians a stark choice: repair or demolish. Both sides have fanatical adherents who have been fighting each other since the Civil Wars. Large sums of money have disappeared, major players have mysteriously vanished, and then an unidentified skeleton is discovered in another man's grave. A reluctant Chaloner returns to London to investigate, only to discover that someone is determined to thwart him by any means - by bullet, poison or bludgeon - and he fears he has very little time to identify the culprits before he becomes yet another victim in the battle for the cathedral's future. 1.
