Treachery by Night by Ann Ruffell


Treachery by Night by Ann Ruffell

Glencoe, 1692 is the setting for this tale of treachery and deceit. There is a rising feud between the Campbells and MacDonalds. Conn, a young MacDonald with a withered arm, wishes he could fight like his cousin Jamie, a fierce swordsman and warrior. Before he has chance to practise the Campbells' Redcoats charge on Glencoe and Conn is forced to put his sword skills to use. Who will emerge victorious? Treachery by Night is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Treachery by Night is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9-10 years.
