Based on some of literature’s horror and science fiction classics, this is the story of a remarkable group of women who come together to solve the mystery of a series of gruesome murders—and the bigger mystery of their own origins. Mary Jekyll, alone and penniless following her parents’ death, is curious about the secrets of her father’s mysterious past. One clue in particular hints that Edward Hyde, her father’s former friend and a murderer, may be nearby, and there is a reward for information leading to his capture…a reward that would solve all of her immediate financial woes. But her hunt leads her to Hyde’s daughter, Diana, a feral child left to be raised by nuns. With the assistance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Mary continues her search for the elusive Hyde, and soon befriends more women, all of whom have been created through terrifying experimentation: Beatrice Rappaccini, Catherin Moreau, and Justine Frankenstein. When their investigations lead them to the discovery of a secret society of immoral and power-crazed scientists, the horrors of their past return. Now it is up to the monsters to finally triumph over the monstrous.

Romeo and Juliet for Teenagers

Category: Fiction

'Gilbert writes so well that you half suspect he could give up the day job,' The Independent.'A natural storyteller,' The Times Educational Supplement (TES)The brand new edition includes Shakespeare's original play as well as a fabulously entertaining, controversial and challenging translation.This book is a perfect companion to Baz Luhrmann's great film 'Romeo + Juliet'. Written by a teacher who is also a best-selling author, 'Star-crossed' is a modern version of Romeo and Juliet which updates Shakespeare's classic play in a very entertaining fashion. In some ways it is faithful to the original text, providing a modern translation for every speech in the play. However, it uses poetic licence to make Shakespeare's language accessible to teenagers and adults: for example, bad language has been used when appropriate to the dialogue. This playscript is not suitable for children under the age of fifteen. After reading this modern translation, you'll understand and appreciate Shakespeare's text that much more.

'Outside the sun shines. Buses rumble towards Ealing Broadway and I'm expected to do battle with the powers of darkness. It all seems a little unfair...' You could say it all started with the red-eyed tramp with the slimy fingers who put the wind up Neville, the part-time barman, something rotten. Or when Archroy's wife swapped his trusty Morris Minor for five magic beans while he was out at the rubber factory. On the other hand, you could say it all started a lot earlier. Like 450 years ago, when Borgias walked the earth. Pooley and Omally, stars of the Brentford Laboiur Exchange and the Flying Swan, want nothing to do with it, especially if there's a Yankee and a pint of Large in the offing. Pope Alexander VI, last of the Borgias, has other ideas...
