Valentine is the first in a page-turning young adult series featuring Pearl and Finn, from explosive new talent Jodi McAlister. What exactly happened the night Marie disappeared? Pearl was at that party - she saw the black horse - but when parts of Marie's dismembered body show up, she realises something seriously sinister is going on. And when the same black horse turns up in Pearl's backyard and leaves her in a coma for three days, she realises two more things. 1)a This is more than sinister. This is supernatural. 2)a The boy who woke her up is mixed up in it. That boy is Finn, the boy with whom Pearl shares a birthday, the boy she has known all her life and disliked every second of it. Even if her subconscious has a totally annoying crush on him. Pearl finds out that Finn has powers she could never have imagined. He can heal. He can walk in dreams. He can make people see things that aren't there. He can't touch iron without being burned. But what is he? Well ...Finn doesn't know. But as if Pearl would be satisfied with that kind of answer. Together, Pearl and Finn discover that he is the Valentine- a Seelie fairy changeling swapped for a human boy at birth. The Unseelie have come to kill the Valentine - except they don't know who it is. Four kids were born on Valentine's Day- Finn, Pearl, her friend Cardy ...and Marie, who is dead. And now both the Seelie and the Unseelie think Pearl is the Valentine, and if they find out she isn't, she'll end up just like Marie. With supernatural forces after her, Pearl must use all her wits to protect herself. Finn must come to terms with his newfound heritage. And then there's the explosive chemistry between them that neither of them know quite what to do about ...
