The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the second double edition in the unmissable Blade series, previously published as Breaking Free and Running Scared. Blade is in danger. He's frightened. His enemies are all around him. And they're closing in. He's got to run, get away. He's always been good at that. But this time it's harder. He's badly wounded. And he's not on his own. Narrated by Blade himself, be prepared to enter his world. It's not pretty ...it's urban, real and dangerous. As Blade's story unfolds, readers will become completely hooked by this unforgettable character.

Blade 2: Flight by Tim Bowler
Blade has touched the edge of death. His injuries have left him exposed and vulnerable. Now his enemies have tracked him down and Blade knows they'll show no mercy. If he doesn't get away, he's dead. Mary has told him to give himself up. But it's too late for that now. He's surrounded by big, new dangers, his strength is failing, and all he can do is run...
