The Lovereading4Kids comment

The fantasy adventure that began with Jenna’s debut novel Wintercraft continues with Blackwatch. In the trade this type of book is called a cross over 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..


Wintercraft Blackwatch by Jenna Burtenshaw

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.


'Jenna Burtenshaw's debut comes as a breath of fresh air - or should that be foul? Like Joseph Delaney's The Spook's Apprentice, it comes from somebody who is a born writer and who has a genuinely scary premise ... a genuine graveyard chill. Huge fun, and deliciously shivery.' - Amanda Craig, The Times
