Tobey was a great character in all except his weakness for Callie, who was as annoying as ever. And I’m really crss glad that I did. Callie and Tobey throughout Checkmate were so obviously perfect for each other, and they actually got together Can’t say that I’m not disappointed. Book 3 Noughts and Crosses. Callum finds her and gives false instructions to the others.

There’s a problem loading this menu right now. So glad I marathoned it and I would recommend it to anyone. On a final note I am in no way romantically interested in real life terrorists, just fictional ones. Blackman has a habit it seems of killing the best characters, like Cara from Knife Edge and Rebecca. However I did think the themes of drugs in this book was interesting but there was barely any development malrie the last book. To read about a young white man grappling with the challenges, social and psychological, that harry many young black men is enlightening in subtle ways, though Blackman’s clever use of the thriller genre lifts the book beyond consciousness-raising.

I found it refreshing to be completely consumed in a story for a change. L rated it liked it. Customers who bought this item also bought.

Double Cross (Noughts & Crosses, #4) by Malorie Blackman

See all reviews. Because while Double Cross had the traits that I mentioned above, the story was not quite as well put together as what I was used to from Patterson.

Whilst the first book sets up so many questions about modern society, this second addition to the series delves even further into the dark crevices of a corrupt way of thinking.

Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Want to Read saving…. An international organisation, the Pangaean Economic Community, exists. Did it ruin the series for me? The main character is sleeping the whole entire book and the prince is left to save her, only the fairies have left him locked up for a couple of years, leaving him to sit there doing nothing. It didn’t help my reading that Jasmine isn’t present in this book at all and of course I knew she wouldn’t be based on what happened in the previous one and Meggie is barely mentioned.

The book Noughts and Crosses is a dystopian fiction based in a 21st-century parallel universe. Tobey and Callie, now grown up, have to deal with the same hardships Callum and Sephy had to deal with back in Noughts and Crosses. For me personally, the ending feels a little open, as if there could, some day, be more to come, although I really don’t think Blackman could surpass herself this time!

When I heard about this book coming out I went crazy. After she dies in hospital, Jude is eventually arrested and charged with Cara’s murder.

blackmann Tobey starts off dead against the gang culture, but he realises with some work, he could get some money in order to achieve blackmam better life style. Noughts and Crosses 4. This my favourite series of books ever. By the time readers reach the second book in this series, Knife Edge, they may be asking themselves this exact question.

And yet there is always the opportunity for something humane to lead him out of the tunnel of betrayal and violence.

But ultimately what I got just didn’t feel ‘right’. She suffers from a horrible disease which has symptoms of bitchiness, moodiness doubld erratic behavior. She hears Callum shouting to her but is unsure if she heard the word ‘too’ so she cannot be sure that Callum heard her.
