Blade: Fighting Back

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults

LoveReading View on Blade: Fighting Back

Another hard hitting title about Blade, newly back in the Beast, the city he left when he was eleven. Blade hates the Beast but he has no choice but to go back if he is to rescue Jaz who has been snatched by the grinks. Full of danger, darkness and menace, Blade’s adventures are, as ever, a gripping story.


Blade: Fighting Back Synopsis

I've come back for Jaz. She's all I want. I don't give two bells what happens to me long as she gets away safe. But I'll tell you something, Bigeyes. If she's dead, there's something else I'll have. My revenge. From the Carnegie Medal-winning author of River Boy, Starseeker and Bloodchild comes the fifth title in this startlingly compelling 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 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.
