A dystopian novel with many allegorical themes that grips from the start. Kaspar starts to question his teaching once he realises his dream of becoming a Guardian in the society .

Best-known for Noughts & Crosses, the newly appointed Children’s Laureate’s latest book is as thought provoking as ever. Here, society has been torn apart by war. The Guardians keep the city peaceful by keeping out the rebels. Kaspar is honoured to join the Guardians but when he meets Rhea, a beautiful rebel girl, he becomes haunted by memories from the past. Has he given up too much for the sake of safety and protection?

Noble Conflict Synopsis

Years after a violent war destroyed much of the world, Kaspar has grown up in a society based on peace and harmony. But beyond the city walls, a vicious band of rebels are plotting to tear this peace apart. It is up to the Guardians - an elite peacekeeping force - to protect the city, without ever resorting to the brutal methods of their enemy. When Kaspar joins the Guardians, he has a chance encounter with a rebel - a beautiful girl named Rhea. Haunted from that moment on by strange visions and memories - memories that could only belong to Rhea - he realises he hasn't been told the truth about what the rebels really want, and what he's really fighting for.

Noble Conflict Press Reviews

As ever, for Blackman, story is king. The dialogue is vivid, inclusive, full of energy and ribald humour ... her legions of fans have a treat in store Guardian

A tense plot, convincing world and sassy dialogue demonstrate exceptional storytelling skill -- Nicolette Jones Sunday Times

Blackman is a terrific storyteller whose strongly drawn characters thrill young readers and draw them into dilemmas about love, loyalty, truth and violence The Times

Expertly plotted and well-paced, Noble Conflict also touches on telepathy and the ability to turn memory into reality Independent

Malorie's back with a new novel exploring love, violence, trust and betrayal ... highly anticipated -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller
