#EditorialReviews of Renegade (Silver Blackthorn #2) by Kerry Wilkinson

Silver Blackthorn is a fugitive from the law.
Silver Blackthorn has committed treason.
She is dangerous. Do NOT approach her.
A large reward is on offer. Report any sightings to your nearest Kingsman.
Long live the King.

Silver Blackthorn is on the run. She fled Windsor Castle with eleven other teenagers, taking with her something far more valuable than even she realises: knowledge.

With the entire country searching for the missing Offerings, Silver must keep them all from the vicious clutches of King Victor and the Minister Prime. Until now, no one has escaped the king and lived to tell the tale.

Or have they?

With expectations weighing heavily on the girl with the silver streak in her hair, will she ever find her way home?
 About the Author

Kerry Wilkinson is a sports journalist living in Lancashire, England. He was named the best selling self-published ebook author of 2011 in the UK. He is also the author of Reckoning.




Wilkinson keeps the mood tuned to a fever pitch with bouts of hand-to-hand combat, disguises, ruses, secret codes, and cliffhangers. (School Library Journal)

Hand this one to teens who have finished Lauren Oliver's Delirium and Alexandra Bracken's The Darkest Minds to keep them contentedly reading. (Voya Magazine)

Utterly thrilling, wonderfully original - a truly great read. (The Sun (UK))

Engaging and compelling throughout...I am entirely in love with this series. (LizLovesBooks.com)

Wilkinson does a bang-up job of creating a world that is utterly believable and imaginable. (Escapeintowords.blogspot.co.uk)

Not since George Orwell has there been such an effective use of the British countryside and townships in a dystopian fiction. (A Bit Behind on Books)

British author Wilkinson creates a villain and a system so unpleasant that readers will long to see them destroyed, and the Offerings face as much danger from their companions turning on each other as from their dangerous circumstances. A strong voice and an intricate endgame. (Publishers Weekly on Reckoning)

In a crowded market of apocalyptic YA fiction, this title stands out. (School Library Journal on Reckoning)

There's true joy in Silver's evolving friendships and the game-changing spirit of camaraderie they inspire. This new dystopian novel ultimately engages with its blurring of lines between medieval castles and sci-fi technology. (Kirkus Reviews on Reckoning)

Reckoning had everything I'm looking for in a great read--vivid characters dealing with impossible circumstances, romance, and a fully realized world that kept me flipping pages long into the night. (Heather Anastasiu, author of Glitch and Override, on Reckoning)
