Synopsis

Treachery by Night by Ann Ruffell

Scotland, 1692. Fifteen-year-old Conn has always dreamed of being a brave warrior, like his cousin Jamie. But brave warriors don't have a withered arm. Then Conn finds a sword in the heather - and he learns to fight using his good arm. As he begins to train in secret, Conn awaits his chance to fight their bitter enemies. When the fateful night comes, Conn is going to need all the battle skills he can muster. Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
