    One thought on “Knife Edge”

    1. Wow.This book is amazing and I'd say it's even better than the first book.I literally flew through this book in one sitting because I didn't want to put it down till I finished it.Malorie Blackman's writing skills are phenomenal,she manages to completely submerge you into her fictional world and continuously pull on your heart strings.The characters complexity is just fantastic and I even felt pity for the worst characters as my opinions of the characters kept altering.I loved every narrative as [...]

    2. Set in a dystopian 21st century near future British society – the ‘Noughts & Crosses’ award winning series of novels (initially a trilogy, subsequently extended to a quadrilogy) opens following a period of alternative history, a post slavery period where the white population (Noughts) have been enslaved by the ruling black elite. Now post emancipation, it is the non-black population who are distinctly disadvantaged and impoverished in this alternative future society which is ruled and [...]

    3. 5/5 because this book is perfect! There was nothing I could fault and it's definitely the best book I've read in a long time. I know a lot of people say this isn't as good as the first, but I adored it and actually thought that it was maybe better because of the further development of the characters and the plot; I was hooked!CHARACTERS:+ Sephy is such an incredible character - how she thinks about everything, how she acts about everything. She dragged me into her emotions and I really felt for [...]

    4. MY FEELS OH MY GOSH MY FEELS! This is absolutely the most heart wrenching, gut tearing, depressing novel I have ever been blessed to read! Literally for the first half of the novel I was just sitting here like:AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY VISION STARTED TO GET BLURRY AND THE GATEWAY OF TEARS JUST FLOODED OUT AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRIED- I COULDN'T STOP THEM! SERIOUSLY , THIS BOOK WAS THE DEATH OF ME I JUST SAT IN MY ROOM AT 4:30 IN THE MORNING WITH A BOX OF TISSUES AND UGLY CRYING AND NOT BEIN [...]

    5. 4.75/5 I'd give it a 95%This book was amazing! For those who have read Noughts and Crosses and decided not to continue on with the series, I completely understand why (plot-wise) but also because Noughts and Crosses has such a good and full story arc that it works 100% fine as a stand alone novel. I myself was considering leaving it at that because I loved that book and it felt very complete so I wasn't really sure if I was going to read this book. I am so glad that I did.As I mentioned earlier, [...]

    6. I loved this and it's a really good sequel!I was totally hooked this weekend as you will see by how much of this series I managed to read.

    7. Leider nicht ganz so gut wie Teil 1. Es ist nicht viel passiert und ich fand Sephys Handlungen teilweise mehr als unüberlegt. Aufgeregt haben mich auch die Passagen aus Jonathans Sicht. Wenn das mal nicht das abgefuckteste Arschloch ist, über den ich je gelesen habe, dann weiß ich auch nicht. Das Ende war natürlich wieder krass und ich hoffe, dass sich die Geschichte in Teil 3 zum Positiven wendet und alles gut wird.

    8. This one is actually better than the first book. Which is great, of course, but I found one of the characters overly disagreeable, and that kinda influenced my liking of the story as a whole. And yet, it's cruel, almost unbearable at times, and it's free of romance, Checkmate will hopefully be less sinister, although I'm aware the setting isn't meant to be pleasant.

    9. Je vais la faire en français. Je n'aurais jamais assez de mots en anglais pour exprimer tout ce que j'ai ressenti. C'était tellement violent, bouleversant, et j'en reste sur le cul.C'est une lecture dont j'en attendais beaucoup après le un. Et je l'ai trouvé beaucoup plus explosif, meilleur. Emplie de haine, de passion, de désespoir, d'humanité (malheureusement, rarement dans ses bons jours), et d'amour. J'ai été remué, sans cesse. Chaque page, chaque mot, a été un coup de poignard da [...]

    10. This book shows us Jude's character in more detail than Noughts and Crosses did, because we have a lot of chapters from his POV, and we see him falling in love - with a Cross. So what I learnt from this book was that is a McGregor child falls in love with a Cross it ends with at least one death. Poor Cara. However, Cara's death - like Callum's - was completely necessary. If Jude had fallen in love with a Cross and just stayed with her it would've destroyed his character, he was too full of hate [...]

    11. WARNING: Spoilers alert. Don't read this review if you haven't read the first book.I was so excited, and eager to begin reading this book when my mum brought it home from the library. If you have read my review of Noughts and Crosses, you will know how much I loved it, and so obviously I wanted to read this one. Who doesn't love a good sequel?! And it certainly didn't disappoint! Knife Edge had some wonderful new characters, and plot twists all the way through, so it kept me on the edge of my se [...]

    12. For my pre read thoughts and reasons for rating please visit my blog:From the Shadows I Review This was not on the same level as ‘Noughts and Crosses’. The writing was good, but the story felt lost for me. It wasn’t the same. And while I get that we’re dealing with the aftermath of the conclusion of book one, I feel that this doesn’t do it justice. I found myself dragging myself through the book, when with the predecessor I was racing through the book, praying that it wouldn’t end.Ju [...]

    13. This is the second novel in the Noughts & Crosses series and as with the first book it is wonderfully written with well rounded and interesting characters and a story which pulls you in from the first few pages. The voices of each character alternate between chapters, and along with Sephy a black-skinned Cross, we see the world through the eyes of Jude, a white-skinned nought and Callum's brother, and occasionally from Sephy's mother, Jasmine, and Jude's mother, Meggie.The story continues on [...]

    14. Noughts & Crosses was an excellent book. Not only did it surprise me in terms of its quality, but it struck that perfect balance between readability and grit. I was therefore looking forward to the second in the series. This book shifts its focus slightly, necessarily so due to the ending of the first book. The main characters are now Sephy and Jude, Callum's brother. Both continue to fight their way through life in a very racist world, with Judge continuing his role as a 'liberation fighter [...]

    15. 1. Thought provoking2. Strong but not preachy message3. Deal with some very controversial issues superblyJust utterly amazing! To see my full review, click the link to my blog below:ohcakeycreativity.

    16. I find many series begin with a book that’s so outstanding and fresh that creates an illusion to the reader that the rest of the books in the series are going to be the same. I wasn’t too sure where this book was going, but I will stick with the series due to the important issues being raised within it. I didn’t like the band scenes, I understand that they were part of Sephy’s development and growth after the death of Callum, but these scenes bored me. I actually love Jude as the Villain [...]

    17. Did it really need a sequel? The story is a bit all over the place and makes me dislike Jules a lot.I don't think it added much but a revengeful plan, though I didn't think hatred went that deep. Its once again a well written book with a strong character falling into depression. All the books are very symbolic and it is a cleverly thought out plan. however I think it didn't hit me as much as other people

    18. Sephy Hadley is one of my fave characters of all time and this entire book my heart aches for all she's lost and all she's trying to do; only re-reading it at the age I am now have I realised just how young she is and how much weight is on her brave little shoulders. Jude is such a conundrum - he's an awful guy there's no denying that but the loss and pain and hurt he's suffered in his short life and the way he's been treated are a direct correlation of that. He makes incredibly bad choices but [...]

    19. A great read! I loved seeing Jude’s perspective as well as Meggie! This book definitely see a more in depth look to sephy. Also it kept my heart racing throughout.

    20. This book was very moving getting to know Callie Rose more. I did not think it was as good as the first book but was still very enjoyable and kept me reading on.

    21. 've only dipped my toe so as to speak into Malorie Blackman's excellent young adult reads so far, starting with the brilliant Noughts And Crosses (read my review HERE) and now with the follow up Knife Edge. Well, I might be a bit of a latecomer to the party but blow me down with a feather she is a superb writer! I always worry with a series that it might suffer from "second book syndrome," or tail off and lose my interest but I enjoyed the sequel just as much as I did the first. I'm going to try [...]

    22. This book is really good, ithas sad moments happy moments upsetting moments, funny moments, romantic moments and over all it's a good start to the series

    23. I had high hopes for the second books in the Noughts & Crosses series. The ending of Noughts & Crosses was powerful and full of promise, but I don't feel like Knife Edge lived up to it. It's not a bad book, it's still better than most but it didn't grip me in the same way.Following on from Noughts & Crosses, and the short story An Eye for An Eye, Sephy has had her baby daughter and now in a difficult position caught between the two worlds. She has a hard time forgiving her family for [...]

    24. This is the third book in the Noughts and Crosses series, and it's every bit as good as the first ones. In the first section, the short chapters alternate between Jude, a nought, and Sephy, a Cross, with each telling their own separate but sometimes overlapping story. Jude is Callum's brother, and he blames Sephy for his brother's death by hanging. After planning to kill her in An Eye for An Eye, he's realized that he can get better revenge against her in the future, through her daughter, who wa [...]

    25. I dropped my rating of this book by one point for one reason only: Sephy, and her annoying as hell personality, particularly during the first half of the book. I was hoping that the facts that a) she’s now a mother, and b) she’s eighteen-years-old would push her to mature a bit, in comparison to the previous book. But nope. I was let down.Sephy is still equally as childish, whiny, and self-absorbed as she was in the first book of the series. She continues to act like the victim even though s [...]

    26. **SPOILERS FOR NOUGHTS AND CROSSES**I loved Noughts and Crosses a lot, so I was very much anticipating the sequel, Knife Edge. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as I did its predecessor, but it was still an excellent story nonetheless. This time we focus on Sephy and Jude, Callum’s older brother. Jude is on the run for being a member of the Liberation Militia whilst Sephy is struggling to cope following the birth of her and Callum’s child, Callie Rose; Sephy discovers somethin [...]

    27. These days it's cool to be reading teen books when well past your teens as I am. Always intended to read on in this trilogy, but I really should not have left it three years after reading the first - it took a while before the plot came back to me, and all the way through it kept referring to events in the previous book that I could barely remember. That said, this would probably just about work as a stand-alone novel. It's written in a simple, direct style, and has less twists and turns than th [...]
