Hodder and Stoughton, 2016. ISBN 9781473628113
(Age: Senior secondary) Themes: Historical fantasy, War, Gender roles, Spies and Espionage, Relationships. If you can get students to pick up this voluminous title and then get them to read though the first 100 pages then they will be in for a good read. The narrative contains a plethora of interesting characters that intersect in a variety of situations.
If students are interested in war, travels, ancient spies and espionage, gender issues, simmering plots and allegiances in a fantasy setting then this is the book for them.
