Rebecca Lim

Longlisted, Davitt Awards, Best Young Adult Novel, 2016'Lim’s murder mystery is much more than its tightly constructed plot, with rich character development, intriguing concepts about the afterlife, and profound depictions of grief. Lim cleverly employs remembered dreams as a device to weave in different strands of folklore. But it’s Sophie’s narrative tone that stays with the reader; this courageous and believably flawed outcast is a memorable heroine.'—Booklist‘As in her triumphant The Astrologer's Daughter (2015), Lim carefully unspools her tightly plotted fantastical mystery with a reluctant, socially maladroit heroine and an unlikely partner at the center. Her insistent focus on murders of people at society's fringes and the ability of teen girls to right truly foul injustices are both most welcome… Readers will hold out hope for a second installment set in Lim's richly imagined world. (Paranormal thriller. 14-18)’—Kirkus'Lim delivers satisfying action and romance throughout, continually raising the stakes on the way toward a chilling, violent ending.'—Publishers Weekly‘This is a story of grief, as well as a mystery thriller with supernatural aspects…Will have teens rooting for Sophie to save the day, help Eve, and make them believe ghosts exist.‘—School Library Journal"[Afterlight has] a dark premise, an unpopular outcast heroine, a beautiful and brooding love interest and a mystery."—Books + Publishing"An eerie little book, full of ghosts and loose ends, biker gangs and high school drama...There is also something compelling about Rebecca Lim's characters, none of whom fit a cookie-cutter mould."—Otago Daily Times"From author Rebecca Lim who has just been nominated for a Prime Minister's Literary Award, comes this dark, otherworldly and dangerous love story."—Essential Kids The Best Australian YA Books for Teens from 2015"This novel sucked me in straight away...The reader engages with Sophie as she tells her story in the first person, and displays the strengths and weaknesses that make her credible and appealing...I enjoyed this book immensely and will be looking for the next one in the series."—New Zealand Book CouncilCritical acclaim for The Astrologer's Daughter:Kirkus Best Teen Books of 2015Kirkus Best International Teen Books of 2015Kirkus Best Teen Books of 2015 for an Adrenaline RushA 2015 CBCA Notable Book for Older ReadersShortlisted, 2015 Prime Minister's Literary Award for Best YAShortlisted, 2015 Aurealis Award for Best YAShortlisted, 2015 Davitt Award for Best YA"Taut, assured thriller. . . .

First Rule of the Cannon: Trust no one. Aerietta Elony is destined for evil. Born into a royal family, it was quickly discovered that she bore the Jezdah mark — an intricate tattoo meant to identify the Children of the Elements. To make sure his people never knew about the danger that hid in their midst, the king had his daughter sent to the leader of the Cannon, his order of assassins, where she would learn to become one of them. No one was ever supposed to know what Aerietta was, where she came from, or what she was destined to become. She’s never worried what would happen if someone discovered her secrets. But when a neighboring kingdom attacks, and Aerietta is betrayed and captured, keeping her secret will mean the difference between life and death. When the king of the neighboring land enlists her services to track down one of her traitor companions, she has no choice but to accept. But in order to find her former friend and make it back to the king with her head still attached to her shoulders, she’ll have to keep the enigmatic, inhuman Swordmaster in the dark, which proves to be more difficult than she could ever imagine. Deception abounds, danger is just as prevalent, but even in this world of demons and magic, the only thing Aerietta fears is herself. The Queen of Crimson accepts.

Afterlight is the winner of the 1983 Juniper Prize, the annual poetry award sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Press. The subjects of Hudson's poems are nature, especially the Western landscape, and themes drawn from the history of literature and the arts and mythology. These poems are consistently united in expressing the exile of people from the sources of their power. Hudson's belief is an old one: poetry can restore us to wholeness. His language is precise and original, and the powerful images he evokes take us some way toward the fundamental clarity that he wishes to provide.
