Read full description of the books:
Cirkulatti: a person descended from circus performers of the ancient world, rumoured to have supernatural gifts...
Tallulah has always known she was different. She can communicate without speaking, a secret she shares only with her childhood nanny, Irena, who warns Tallulah that gifts like hers are not always welcome.
When Tallulah begins training at the prestigious Cirque d′Avenir school, it soon becomes clear the troupe is not all that it seems. As Tallulah is drawn deeper into a world of dark, ancient powers and centuries-old greed, she must call on the skills Irena taught her -- and on the protection of the mysterious cuff Irena gave her for safekeeping.
But what is the secret of the power the cuff holds? And why are men willing to die to possess it? Tallulah always knew her gift was dangerous... But will it stop her from accepting her true inheritance?

Read information about the authorLisa Forrest is an author, TV and radio broadcaster and Olympian.
Her first career, as a teenager, was swimming backstroke for Australia. In 1978 when she was 14 she won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games in Edmonton, Canada; she captained the women's swim team to the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow; and in 1982 won gold medals at the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane, Australia.
For almost twenty years she worked as a TV and radio journalist/presenter before writing her first novel in 2000, Making the Most of It, a coming-of-age story loosely based on her own teenage experiences:
Forrest has so many arrows in her quiver it seems almost obscene she should add novelist to the CV. Yet she has done it very well. This story for teenagers ...is well crafted, deftly sketched and plotted with pace and panache.
Lisa Forrest’s delightful and disarming debut novel ... is told in Forrest’s frank style, which eschews pathos and any attempt to make this either a heroic or cautionary tale.
The Australian Review of Books
Since then Lisa has written four books, including djmAx, about a teenage girl who wants to be a DJ and the grandfather who has raised her:
DJ Max is another great book for young adults. It captures the vibrancy of youth, the need to break free into new territory while still having support of the ‘oldies’. Filled with delicious details and intriguing subplots, DJ Max dances with life, a sure-fire page-turner.

... and Boycott: Australia's Controversial Road to the 1980 Olympics, a non-fiction account of the months leading up to the Moscow Games when the Federal Government, sections of the media and, unfortunately, members of the public, used all manner of intimidation in their attempts to force Australian athletes to boycott the Olympic Games
Forrest’s book is enlightening ... This is memoir, growing-up diary, elite insights and administrative history meeting sport- in-change and generation gap ... The best sections are marvelous ... Above all, she demonstrates that sport is rarely divorced from the wider world, and always deserves serious attention.
Australian Book Review
Forrest’s account of the times is remarkable and moving. Deftly weaving her own autobiography through these major machinations she has produced a powerfully honest book ... amazing to learn that it took until the Sydney Olympics for many of the rifts in Australian sport to finally heal.
If only every book about sport was like this. Literate, well-researched, a careful mixture of personal anecdote and commentary from a wide collection of interviews.
Forrest is a very good journalist ... she adopts a wonderfully even handed approach. The story gets along at a page-turning clip and Forrest’s style is detailed and engaging.
Sydney Morning Herald

Lisa Forrest has created a butt-kicking heroine and a world of rich traditons, epic destinies and, of course, dark and closely guarded secrets.
Don't miss this action-packed new fantasy series!
