Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman

Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman is out next month!

The gripping new novel by award-winning Malorie Blackman, author of the bestselling Noughts & Crosses sequence. 

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 realises he hasn't been told the truth about what the rebels really want, and what he's really fighting for.
