The Last Siege




A new novel from the talented author of The Amulet of Samarkand, Buried Fire and The Leap. A powerful book with a dramatic twist.

When Emily, Simon and Marcus discover the deserted castle, it seems like an escape from the midwinter snows and their individual loneliness. But their occupation of the ruin quickly takes on a momentum of its own, and soon threatens their friendship, their freedom and their lives.

a gripping novel of real originality... The careful setting-up, subtle delineation of character, meticulous observation of the castle itself - in some ways the story's main character - and the gradual increase in the pace and tension of this riveting narrative mark this as a novel of real skill and technique.

A briliant book, evocatively written and full of sinister supsense
