Giveaway: YA Pack: Tribal Lores and Rise of the Remarkables: Brasswitch and Bot

The good people of Walker Books Australia produce some truly outstanding Young Adult fiction. Here are two very different YA novels that we have managed to bundle into one awesome prize pack for you.

Tribal Lores by Archimede Fusillo and Rise of the Remarkables; Brasswitch and Bot by the equally incredible, Gareth Ward

Tribal Lores is a moving and explosive tale about what happens when tradition and the need to belong collide.This book explores the fundamental things about growing up that never change: the desire to fit in and be accepted by one’s peers, the intrinsic urge to belong, where Archimede Fusillo felt compelled to tell about the challenges of being a male who is not expected to sway too much from the traditions and values of a tight Italian family, yet surrounded by peers who pushed against these same restrictions.

Rise of the Remarkables: Brasswitch and Bot is the next high-stakes, action-packed series from the author of The Traitor and the Thief, winner of the 2016 Storylines Tessa Duder Award, the 2018 Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Youth Novel and Best New Talent. A fantastic steampunk adventure story for readers 10+, perfect for fans of Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan series and Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines series.
