Since a lot of people are still asking for an invite to the new blog, we have to clarify that unfortunately we have run out of invitations, meaning we cannot send any more, period.

However, we've created a Facebook group to accommodate people who missed out on invitations. You can add our facebook to request for an invite to the group.

But due to security issues [which I'm sure you're all aware of], we're going to need some sort of vouch/evidence that you are not (1) A troll or (2) Out to shut down the blog before we approve/add you to the group.

This also means only real profiles will be approved - profiles who actually look like they're being used. Fake ones will be ignored. Think of it as a VISA application ;-)

Don't worry, we won't try to worm your private information from you or/and steal your identity.

This blog will no longer be updated, since we will be moving to a new, private blog. You can request for an invite by giving us your e-mail address in the comments section under this post, or give us a shout at twitter, or you can also send us your e-mail for a request.

So don't forget to update your bookmarks and follow us at the new blog. Hope to see you all soon!

Update: Since we will hardly be checking this blog and our e-mail, requests through twitter will most likely be processed faster.

Update 7 May: Blogger only allows a maximum of 100 readers to access a private blog. We are almost up to that limit, so some late requests may not be able to be processed. We're still searching for ways to work around this limit, so if anyone knows any possible solutions, please do tell us!

Update 13 July: Invitations are closed!!! We've reached the maximum 100 members, so we're very sorry to say anyone who's requested for access but hasn't received an invitation yet means they were too late.
Our only solution is to follow us on twitter where we occasionally share ebook links and answer requests, also we'll open the new blog up for public every once in a while for a short time, which we will announce on twitter beforehand.
Hope that works.

Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart—and she has just the ammunition to do it.

Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen—a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all.

Now it’ll take everything she’s got—and bring out powers she never knew she had—to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?

This is Alyson Noël's fifth book in her Immortals series. The sixth is apparently due out in June.


Dark Flame

Posted by Scribbles

At the start of this mesmerizing new installment of the Immortals series, Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. 

But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. 

Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen.

Here is the fourth book in Alyson Noël's Immortals series. The fifth and sixth will be uploaded as soon as possible.

Here is the sequel to Rachel Hawkin's Hex Hall.

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Still alive folks! Although some bad news, we're a bit busy... I've a dissertation to worry about, another's got a baby coming, third has a promotion at work, etc. etc. ...so the point is we won't be able to upload anything for a while.

Second bad piece of news (gets better) the 4shared account associated with some (most) of the files may be permanently deleted due to infringement of policies yaddayaddayaddah ... and if that happens, most of the download links will also go offline.
So just in case you haven't downloaded anything you're planning to, I suggest you do it before it shuts down.

P.S. Terribly sorry for events in Japan, although very happy for Egypt and hopes the best for Libya. Whoa, world's getting f***ed up.

Christmas is coming in just over a week and the request list is getting longer and longer.

So we've found links to a number of the books you've all requested. Well the good news is, I thought I'd catch up and give you an early Christmas present. The bad news is I can't upload all of them just yet (I'd like to see you try!) and since I'm going to be posting a whole bunch of them, I'm afraid it's not going to be posted in the format we usually post our e-books, and we also haven't gotten around to checking them and seeing the quality for each of the books.

They'll hopefully be readable, though. Will be posting them soon. Pinky promise.

But Helen, Queen of Eddis, knows him, and so does Gen, the queen’s Thief, who is now King of Attolia. Gen and the queen believe that Sophos is dead. But they also believe in hope, especially since a body was never found. So when Sophos is discovered in Attolia, the obvious question becomes: where has he been all this time?

Mortal Instruments

Posted by Scribbles

I. City of Bones
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing - not even a smear of blood - to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

II. City of Ashes
Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go -- especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil -- and also her father.

III. City of Glass
To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
