Hell's Corner
Baldacci, David

Oliver Stone is an American ex-agent, or better still, an assassin who worked for the American government and retired. During a walk, he witnesses by chance a murder attempt against the UK’s Prime Minister in the park in front of the White House. The President of the USA asks him personally to investigate the case and promises to re-instate him and destroy his personal file. The plot is complicated and unpredictable, as only until the end no one knows who is the good one and the assassin. A positive aspect is the stress put into Oliver’s friendship with those who help him whenever he needs their help. It may not be suitable for young readers as the agents who work for the government are actually assassins who kill indiscriminately those they see as a danger. Although the main character is not proud of his work and even suffers because for what he has done in the past, he does it as the most normal thing, an approach which may confuse the moral sense of justice of some readers.

In order to leave Wormwood and discover the truth about her world, Vega and her best friend Delph must find a way to make it across a terrifying land of bloodthirsty creatures and sinister magic. But the Quag is worse than Vega Jane’s darkest imagining. It’s a living, breathing prison designed to keep enemies out and the villagers of Wormwood in. The Quag will throw everything at Vega Jane.
