Blade's touched the edge of death. His injuries have left him exposed-and vulnerable. Now his enemies have tracked him down, and Blade knows they'll show no mercy. If he doesn't get away, he's dead. But he's weak. And he doesn't know what scares him more . . . breaking free from those hunting him-or breaking free from his own past. From the Carnegie Medal-winning author of River Boy, Starseeker and Frozen Fire comes the third title in a startlingly compelling new series. Contemporary, pacy, and utterly gripping, Blade takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the secret, dangerous life of its unforgettable narrator. This thrilling new series for teenagers combines an enormously likable and engaging central character with the harsh realities of street life and the youth gang culture that is so prevalent in today's news. The mysteries and cliffhanger endings of these short, accessible books will have the power to tempt all readers as they gradually become absorbed into Blade's dangerous world.
