Zenith is the incredible story of three teenagers with the will to make their own beginnings in the harshest of worlds. It continues the stunning journey begun in Exodus, which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year Award. For all those adults and children who enjoyed Pullman’s Dark Materials trilogy, both titles will be devoured. It is also an environmental wake-up call that should be required reading for all. With terrific storytelling power, Julie Bretagna has written an ambitious and intellectually stimulating novel and pulled it off with great aplomb.

Synopsis

Zenith by Julie Bertagna

Sixteen-year-old Mara and her ship of refugees are tracking the North Star, desperate to find a homeland in the melted ice mountains of Greenland. Unwittingly, the refugees bring catastrophe in their wake for Tuck, a gypsea pirate-boy, and also for Ilira - a land whose inhabitants exist in a state of terror at the top of the world.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.
