New Titles – w/e 2nd June 2012

in large format:
Phillipa Ballantine – Hunter and Fox Talyn lives in a very strange, malleable world where mountains or lakes can alter to be plains or forests, etc. Unknowingly, she carries a chaos creature within her, which has plans of it’s own she knows nothing about…
