The Lovereading4Kids comment
The second in the Blade series, this is another short, very accessible novel for teens. Pacy, gripping and packed with action, and a central character that’s incredibly engaging, even the most reluctant reader will devour it. Blade is on the run from the shadowy figures of his past along with Becky who has left her gang behind to be with Blade but forces are closing in on them. Is there no escape this time? The first in this thrilling series is Blade: Playing Dead, and Blade: Breaking Free, the third title is Blade: Breaking Free and is also now published.

Blade: Closing In by Tim Bowler
Following the dramatic events of the first Blade book, Playing Dead, Blade is on the run again with Becky and three-year-old Jaz in tow. Now it's not just those shadowy figures from his past that are after him, it's the rest of Becky's gang too. They think Blade and Becky killed their leader, Trix, and there's no way of proving otherwise. Can Blade, Becky, and Jaz find safety together - or is there no escape from the forces closing in on them? From the Carnegie Medal-winning author of River Boy, Starseeker and Frozen Fire comes something completely different - a startlingly compelling new 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 new 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.
