11+: Wintercraft 2: Black Watch - Jenna Burtenshaw

Release Date: 14/04/11


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.


Having read the Jenna’s debut, Wintercraft last year, I was wondering whether or not she’d be able to match the passion, as well as skill of the first title in this, her second release which for me is more the make or break title for a debut author rather than the first book.

What unfurls within is a tale that is wonderfully plotted with characters that continue to grow and whilst this title is thinner than the previous due to a lot of world setting having already been done, it gets down to the nitty gritty and gives the reader a story arc that will keep them glued from the first to the last page. Add to this snappy prose, great dialogue as well as characters that you really care for and it’s a book that will make this a must not miss series. All in, this was a great read and one that I’m pleased I started, it can only go up so get on the bandwagon now and join the crusade to help Albion.
