Catrina and her family have just moved to a new city, Bahía de la Luna, in the hopes that seaside air will help with her younger sister Maya’s cystic fibrosis. Catrina is prepared (sort of) for leaving all her friends behind and starting over at a new school, but she isn’t prepared for everyone in Bahía de la Luna to believe in ghosts...or for those ghosts to be real.

Last year’s novel "Welcome to Night Vale" introduced the cult hit podcast to a whole new audience (not to mention giving devoted fans a longer narrative to chew on). Now, two volumes of episode transcripts (along with special new bonus material) have also been released in print. "Mostly Void, Partially Stars" and "The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe" collect episodes from the first and second year of the podcast’s existence.

It’s not often that we review picture books here on MuggleNet, but of course we weren’t going to pass up the latest release from author and illustrator Mary GrandPré, who also illustrated the original US editions of "Harry Potter". In "Cleonardo, The Little Inventor", GrandPré tells the story of Cleonardo “Cleo” Wren, daughter of Geonardo, granddaughter of Leonardo, and the latest in a long line of inventors.

As the July/August pick of Emma Watson's book club, Our Shared Shelf, "Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl" gives you a vivid look at the '90s riot grrrl scene in Carrie Brownstein's candid, witty voice.

Twenty-five years ago, planes dropped from the sky and ships ran aground, empty, signaling that Ireland was irretrievably cut off from the rest of the world. The Sídhe, ancient fairy folk, had vowed revenge upon the country that exiled them from their homes thousands of years ago. Their retribution is brutal: every adolescent will at some point be called to the Grey Land, where they’ll have to flee, fight, and hide for survival. For them, the ...

In the third installment of the "Magisterium" series, Call and his best friends, Tamara and Aaron, are back for another year of magical training. What’s more, they’re being celebrated as heroes for defeating Master Joseph and bringing the Assembly the head of the most evil wizard who’s ever lived. The only thing putting a damper on things is that someone seems to be trying to kill Call (again) and the terrible burden of keeping hidden the fact...

It may still be months until Season 4 of "Sherlock" airs, but luckily we don’t have to wait nearly as long for the latest escapades of another of our favorite detectives: R.F. Jackaby. The third installment of the series that has been widely hailed as a compelling combination of both "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock Holmes" has arrived, and it’s just as good (if not better) than the first two books.

Book Review: “We Are the Ants” by Shaun David Hutchinson
Book Reviews / January 22, 2016

In "We Are the Ants", Henry Denton has been given a choice by the aliens who have been abducting him for years: he can either press a button and save the world, or not press the button, in which case the world will end on January 29. It seems as though the choice ought to be easy, except for the fact that his school life is miserable because everyone calls him “Space Boy,” and his boyfriend killed himself last year. He only has a few...

Book Review: “Blood and Salt” by Kim Liggett
Book Reviews / January 21, 2016

Ash and her twin brother Rhys have never thought too much about the fact that their mother escaped from a cult in Kansas just a few months before they were born. Sure, she makes her living creating extraordinary perfumes, burns sage around the house to cleanse it, and gives Ash invisible tattoos that are meant to protect her - but Ash is mostly focused on the dead girl she’s been seeing hanging from the ceiling all her life. It’s onl...

Book Review: “The Dark Days Club” by Alison Goodman
Book Reviews / January 20, 2016

Who doesn't love a good Regency fantasy? Author Alison Goodman has brought us a cracking one with "The Dark Days Club", which follows young Lady Helen as she begins to learn that she has special abilities that allow her to fight forces of evil.

Book Review: “Madly” by Amy Alward
Book Reviews / January 19, 2016

The world of "Madly" is a lot like our own: teens spend a lot of time on their phones, and a lot of money trying to emulate the fashion of the royal family. There’s just one difference: magic is real, and for Samantha Kemi, that means entering the centuries-old family business of alchemy. And trust me, "Madly" shows us just how fun potion-making can be when you’re not worried Professor Snape is breathing down your neck.

Book Review: “The Golden Specific” by S. E. Grove
Book Reviews / January 15, 2016

Honestly, after how much I loved "The Glass Sentence", the first book in S.E. Grove’s "Mapmakers Trilogy", I can’t believe it took me two months to read the equally excellent sequel, "The Golden Specific", which follows our heroine Sophie as she continues to search for her missing parents.

Book Reviews / January 10, 2016

Clare Macleod has just moved back to her childhood home in Ireland, a place she and her father haven't even visited since her mother died. It's built into a green hillside by the sea, and there's a tree growing right inside the house, which has been there for a thousand years. All her life she's felt the pull of the Strange, unexplained moments of beauty or oddness that seem otherworldly. It's only after she moves back to Ireland tha...

Book Review: “The Shadow Behind the Stars” by Rebecca Hahn
Book Reviews / January 6, 2016

"The Shadow Behind the Stars" is told from the perspective of the youngest of the Three Fates (yep, the ones that spin our fortunes), Chole, who, along with her sisters Serena and Xinot, has lived for centuries without ever really interacting with mortals - it's too dangerous. That all changes when they get a taste of their own medicine in the form of the beautiful Aglaia, a young girl who comes to them for help - or at least to blam...
