Product description

Amazon Review

Slaves of the Master is the fantastically vivid, breathtaking sequel to The Wind Singer by William Nicholson.

Written with the same passion and cinematic scope as the first book in the series, Slaves of the Mastery picks up the story of siblings Kestrel and Bowman five years on from the closing chapter of The Wind Singer. The city of Aramanth has become a kinder place, but in becoming kinder it has also become weaker, making it the perfect target for the ruthless soldiers of the Mastery. After a swift and brutal battle that leaves the city burned and the Manth people destined for slavery, Kestrel finds herself alone, angry and bitterly sworn to wreak her own revenge. But first she must find her beloved brother Bowman, and he in turn must find a way of understanding the secrets of the mysterious Singer people. Only then can the pair begin to strike out against the Mastery and begin a voyage that will bring the Manth people back to their former stature.

Slaves of the Mastery lives up to all the promises made by The Wind Singer, and readers who enjoyed the first book will certainly be thrilled by the pace and execution of the second. Dramatic, complex and thought-provoking, this is a challenging read for readers aged 10 and over. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

William Nicholson was born in 1948 and received his early education at Downside School, a Roman Catholic monastic school set in the countryside near Bath. He went on to study English Literature at Christ's College, Cambridge, graduating with a double First Class degree in 1970. After leaving university, William joined BBC television, where he worked as a documentary film maker. It was not long before William's talent was channelled into writing for television dramas and his professional writing career took off. William is perhaps best known as an experienced and successful Hollywood screenwriter, whose credits include the BAFTA award-winning SHADOWLANDS and Oscar-winning GLADIATOR. Nicholson's first trilogy for young readers, The Wind on Fire, met with universal acclaim. Nicholson has won the Smarties Gold Award and the Blue Peter Book Award. He has been cited as one of the most gifted and imaginative writers alive in the world today. William lives in Sussex with his wife Virginia, and their three children.
