Synopses & Reviews
Jenna Burtenshaw continues her dark fantasy trilogy The Secrets of Wintercraft with YA dystopian novel Blackwatch.
In Wintercraft, fifteen-year-old Kate Winters learned she was one of the Skilled, a rare person who can bring the dead to life. Even among that rare group, Kate is special. She alone can understand the secrets of an ancient book of knowledge.
In the sequel, Blackwatch, Kate is on the run from the Skilled, who have accused her of murder. And she is being hunted by an elite unit of assassins fighting in the war against Albion, Kates home.
When a potent magic threatens the veil between life and death, fate reunites Kate with enigmatic villain Silas Dane, a man who cannot be killed. Only they can save Albion.
Deliver Kate Winters and be spared.
Everyone wants Kate Winters, either to lock her up or to use her as the ultimate weapon. She is the one person gifted enough to walk freely through the veil between life and death, to work the magic held in the ancient book of Wintercraft. And she cannot control it. Hunted by the Blackwatch—the elite assassins of the enemy—and by her own people, Kate flees deep into the tunnels beneath the graveyard city. And she's still linked to the murderer and traitor Silas Dane. As the Blackwatch close in, Kate and Silas will face terrors that could destroy Albion. Only they can stop them. And time is running out.
