April 2011 Book of the Month.
The fantasy adventure that began with Jenna’s debut novel Wintercraft continues with Blackwatch. In the trade this type of book is called a crossover novel, so was written with teenagers in mind but is a guilty pleasure for grown–ups (e.g Twilight). The heroine Kate is on trial, wrongly accused of murder and hunted by elite assassins desperate to stop her using her powers. Bursting with mystery and danger with a sprinkling of fun and not forgetting some ‘kick ass characters..
Kate has escaped the clutches of the High Council and Silas has left Albion for the continent. But their lives are forever linked and as the veil weakens, causing Albion's skilled to fear for everyone's safety, Silas and Kate find themselves drawn together by the mysterious and corrupt Dalliah Grey.

Five years later, my brother Adam would be given the same tour. His title? The most beautiful baby in the hospital. Typical. At primary school I was often found lurking in the library reading books that were far too old for me. I loved ...More About Jenna Burtenshaw
