Book Description

6 Jun 2013

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.

Malorie Blackman is acknowledged as one of today's most imaginative and convincing writers for young readers. The novels in her Noughts & Crosses sequence have won several awards, including the Red House Children's Book Award, and she has won many other awards for her books. Both Hacker and Thief! won the Young Telegraph/Gimme 5 Award - Malorie is the only author to have won this award twice - while Hacker also won the WH Smith Mind-Boggling Books Award in 1994.

Her work has appeared on screen, with Pig-Heart Boy, which was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, being adapted into a BAFTA-winning TV serial. Malorie has also written a number of titles for younger readers including Cloud Busting, which won the Smarties Silver Award, The Monster Crisp Guzzler and Whizziwig. In 2005, Malorie was honoured with the Eleanor Farjeon Award in recognition of her distinguished contribution to the world of children's books. In 2008, she was then honoured with an OBE for her services to Children's Literature.

Product Description


"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)

4.0 out of 5 stars Noble Conflict - Malorie Blackman 1 Dec 2013
Originally posted at Miss Inga Page.

Malorie Blackman, award-winning author of the Noughts and Crosses series, has recently released her newest book. Playing to one of the many strengths of these prior works, Noble Conflict is set in a dystopian future, after a violent war destroyed everything that formed the world we know today. Kaspar, our protagonist, wants to join the Guardians - a team dedicated to maintaining the peace against the rebel Crusaders. Inspired by his Guardian parents, Kaspar quickly comes face-to-face with a rebel insurgent. After discovering some horrific truths about the world in which he lives, Kaspar enlists the help of his most trusted colleagues to help to put things right. However, he soon realises that not everything is as it seems.

I will be the first to admit that I picked this novel up purely on the back of the Noughts and Crosses series. I read the whole sequence at least three times as a teenager, and have recently loaned the books to a friend after raving about them to her when I learned that there was going to be a new Blackman novel. Although it has been a few years since I last read the books, and some of the finer details of the plot have slipped my mind, I can still distinctly remember how it made me feel! I loved them, and therefore expected something similar from Noble Conflict.

First things first, Noble Conflict has got an infinitely more masculine feel to it than the Noughts and Crosses novels. Whilst Noughts and Crosses has a strong focus on Sephy and Callum, and the implications of their relationship, Noble Conflict puts the conflict at the very forefront. There is a hint of a romance, and even of a love triangle, but friendship (and doing what is right) comes first. The romance is not a central part of the plot.

Seemed to be a bit short and went in quickly but I suppose that may be because I couldn't put the kindle down. An excellent book and I do recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing dystopian epic 7 July 2013
Yet another totally gripping, epic and amazing work from Malorie Blackman. I cannot recommend this enough to all readers who love Dystopian literature and, in fact, to anyone who loves to read at all! Following the War to end all wars the Alliance are protecting their lands and people by employing a force of highly trained Guardians as a peacekeeping force. Kaspar joins the Guardians following in his parents' footsteps in his wish to protect his fellow citizens from the attacks by the Insurgents from the Badlands. However soon Kaspar begins to suspect that all he has been told about their history and wish to live in peace is not absolutely true. The more he is sucked into trying to understand what has really happened to the Alliance citizens and the Insurgents, the more danger he finds himself in. A really powerful and well written story you won't be able to put down!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read but not an 'easy read' 10 Jun 2013
Having eagerly awaited a new book by Malorie Blackman I was not disappointed. This book has many levels and could simply be read as an exciting futuristic adventure but it is much more than that. It is a thought-provoking read and will appeal to adult readers as well as the Y/A audience. Any book by Malorie is worth reading and this all the more so. I will not spoil anyone's enjoyment of this book by detailing the plot or characters. Read between the lines and make up your own mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Xmas present request 25 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was enjoyed by my 14 year old granddaughter and her friend. Both were excited at the idea of a new Malorie Blackman book. I admit that I read it too but didn't think this was one of her best but I am not the age group it was intended for.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great read 4 Feb 2014
By Lorna H
It was a bit of a slow starter, but once I got into the story I really enjoyed it. The plot was exciting, the twist unexpected and the characters interesting. It reminded me of Scott Westerfield's "Uglies" series at the start especially, but I enjoyed it all the same.

A great read - highly recommended.
