Written at the request of Charles Dickens, North and South is a book about rebellion that poses fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. Gaskell expertly blends individual feeling with social concern and her heroine, Margaret Hale, is one of the most original creations of Victorian literature. When Margaret Hale's father leaves the Church in a crisis of conscience she is forced to leave her comfortable home in the tranquil countryside of Hampshire....

This story has such diverse range of emotion, dragging readers through a love story both thick and thin. One of my favourite love stories and the ideal female lead and male love interest.

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Vampire Academy: Last Sacrifice, the final heart wrenching episode at St Vladimir's Academy. Rose is on trial for high treason and the death of Queen Tatiana. Someone is trying to frame her and it looks like even Dimitri might not be able to save her now.

Richelle has done every girl a world of good by writing this epic love story complete with an underground society so carefully fabricated into the 21st century with references from the first novel right through to the last. To have so carefully conducted a story with everything a girl could want: badass female heroes, unconditional loyalty and unforgettable love with a few good punches thrown in! It is still my favourite book series of the 21st century.

It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians - including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian!

Richelle does it again in writing about an underground society so carefully fabricated into the 21st century with references from the first novel right through to the last.

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. And she made the wrong one... After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri's birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir's Academy - and to her best friend, Lissa. But Rose's heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he's out there, somewhere. She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true- Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. Only this time, he won't rest until Rose joins him... forever.

I'm not generally a fan of Vampire Novels but this takes the bait as one of the best conducting series of an underground society complete with a badass female hero, unconditional love and loyalty and a few good punches thrown in! Still my favourite book series.
