Kids’ Kindle Daily Deal
When twelve-year-old Peter Constantine wakes up in the Crown Hotel with a new identity, life is over as he knows it. But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing…
A dangerous man Peter only knows as “The Client” is after his family, so they’ve relocated to New York City. With help from unlikely friends living at the glamorous hotel, including the ghost on the tenth floor, life begins again. However, Peter soon learns of a plot to destroy his new home, a plot only the Phantom can foil.
Peter and the Crown is the first book in the Phantom of New York series, an adventure for readers aged ten and up. If you like smart, funny characters and “can’t put it down” escapades, then you’ll love A.L. Janney’s Phantom of New York series.

Filled with outback Aussie humour, the teens of Sunhaven Downs face everything life throws at them, overcoming tragedy, drought, a very annoying cousin and really, really bad days, as they dream of one day competing for Australia on their horses.
Growing up in remote outback Queensland is filled with challenges, but the teens of Sunhaven Downs manage to overcome everything thrown at them and keep on riding, loving and laughing. In this introductory book to the series, Dane, Lani and Matthew Winter’s lives centre around their horses on their family’s drought stricken cattle station, Sunhaven Downs. When their city cousin, Amy King, is left there by her parents for a year and declares that she hates horses, they know that their lives are ruined. What they don’t know is that Amy has a secret, a secret she is desperate to keep from her outback family. Her secret will ultimately save their lives, but not all of them, on the wild night that the drought breaks and the legendary Min Min lights emerge from the land to help. The book builds to a galloping climax of clashing events as the storms close in around Sunhaven and lives are held in the balance in the remote and untamed outback of Australia.
Saddle up and come along for the exciting ride of The Outback Riders in Book 2, Horses Of The Light, and Book 3, Horses Of The Fire, as they cope with everything from desperate criminals, wildfires and destructive families to the world’s favourite boy band, finding viral video fame and falling in love. Through it all, they work towards their dream of competing for Australia in their chosen sports: eventing, show jumping, polocrosse, reining and cutting, while the mysterious Min Min lights hover in the background, ready to lend their magic.
The author, Leanne Owens, is an English teacher who has been writing for horse magazines for over three decades and has also written and reported for Horse Talk TV. Having lived in the outback for many years, and won over thirty national titles and state titles with her horses, Leanne is well qualified to write about horse addicted teens growing up in the outback.
