    I love this series and cannot wait for the next book. I read Bk 5 in 2 days, but I would not class it in the Children’s list, especially the last in the series which has high sexual content.

      Hi Bernie, thanks for the feedback! This list was Children’s and Young Adult titles as voted by our readers, but we would definitely advise that some of the books, like Tomorrow When the War Began and indeed Throne of Glass, are for mature readers due to their more adult content. We’re looking forward to Bk6 too! All the best from the BR team.
