    Peggy Piercy, a 112-year-old crofter, lives on a remote island in farm, raising her great, great grandniece Gemma and her great, great grandnephew Martin. Eight years ago, Gemma and Martin were brought to Peggy and entrusted to her care, having been orphaned after their parents disappeared while traveling between the Isles of Night. Peggy has enjoyed bringing them up, but now that they are teenagers she wants them to get an education. To do this, Peggy must transport them in her rickety boat on a long journey across some of the most pirate-infested, dangerous-creature infested, weirdo-infested, and unpredictable sky this side of the Main Drift.One morning, Peggy, Gemma, Martin, and Peggy’s sky-cat Botcher set sail. It is an exciting journey for sheltered Gemma and Martin, who have little knowledge of the world around them. Along the way, they encounter a toll-demanding sky-troll; a deadly sky-shark; a crossbow-happy survivor of a child army; an eccentric rat-skinner; a submarine from another dimension; a sky-motel where the customers are made to fit the beds and provide their own dinners; and the seductive Friendly Isle, which few ever manage to leave. Maneuvering all these dangers and desperate characters, the four reach their final destination, only to find more surprises awaiting them.

    The story of Elizabeth I, the 
    last Tudor monarch, is one of enduring fascination. Daughter of the 
    tyrannical Henry VIII and sister of the embittered Queen Mary, 
    Elizabeth did well to survive her childhood. Clever, learned and 
    skilled in diplomacy, as queen she presided over a golden age of 
    literature, exploration and discovery. A selective 
    version of events from Elizabeth's life focuses on her younger years, 
    without distorting the 
    picture of a reign dominated by war, political intrigue and religious 
    disputes. 
     
     
     
    Lives in Action is a series of 
    narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures 
    in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will 
    keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
