Vampires in the Library These School Holidays


zombie carlyThese school holidays when the library has closed and the lights are out, it will transform into the Terrible Castle of Baron Castain. Teens are invited to spend an evening of mystery and adventure at the library where they will navigate their way through a series of challenges, vampires and murder, in true Murder Mystery Party style. Guests will need to engage their acting and improv skills while they mingle with fellow guests and find their way through the winding castle to safety – but they must be wary of who they can trust! With awards and prizes on offer for best acting, best costume and most dramatic death (as well as many others) guests will be sure to put on an incredible performance while they solve the grizzly mystery.

If you are 12 years or over, then join us for dinner and fun – if you dare!

Book Review – Legend by Marie Lu

Do you want to know about my favourite novel of all time? Well, you have come to the right place!

Last year I picked up a book. It didn’t have a particularly fancy cover, or even a great title, but it did have a very interesting blurb. The author of this book is Marie Lu and there are two main characters, Day and June. The genre of this book is science fiction and it is written for young adults. 

15-year-old June was born into a wealthy family. She is a child prodigy; trained to succeed in her country’s highest military force. Day, on the other hand, was born into a poor family, and survival is his main goal in life.

June’s brother Metias perishes by the hand of a murderer. Day becomes the prime suspect and June hunts him down, grief stricken and hungry for revenge.

As the two characters meet they realise that there is more to this than they once thought. They uncover dark secrets about their country, bringing upon them menacing consequences. It is a world of sickness and death and one with little freedom.

The book is also sparked with romance and action, giving you a jolt multiple times and leaving you wanting to read more and more.

I highly recommend this book for you or a friend. It will take you on an amazing ride, leaving you feeling at once lifeless and invigorated.
