Publisher's Summary

A frightened girl running barefoot on a knife edge, that's how 18-year-old Sephy feels as she gazes down at her new-born daughter, Callie Rose. Whilst Sephy is a Cross, the baby's father, Callum, was a nought, giving Callie Rose dual heritage in a society where the ruling Crosses treat the pale-skinned noughts (blankers) as second-class citizens.

What kind of world will her daughter grow up into? One which is more equal? Or one where discrimination still has the power to destroy lives? Sephy can only hope that the tomorrows will be better than the yesterdays. But fifteen years later, Callie Rose's actions are to plunge both of them into the heart of danger, forcing Sephy, once again, to take sides.

Tan cruel...

No he podido parar hasta el final en busca de un momento de paz, siempre con el corazón en vilo.
La interpretación y la lectura fantásticas, con mucho sentimiento.

KE

It was cool but sometimes the acting was terrible and drony. The story is good but if not got others in series, do not get this one.

Must read below

The book is amazing it is breathtaking
However it's missing pages and words and you will be confused in where you are.
Overall based on the book it's fantastic, i may says do read noughts and crosses first.

Great sequel

After listening to noughts and crosses, I was keen to listen to Knife edge. I did enjoy it, and it is clever how it reverses stereotypes by applying a slant on opinions and sayings.
I don't think the story is as strong as noughts and crosses, but I will still listen to the third instalment.
I really liked the narration on both books so far.

Incredibly gripping - Malorie Blackman doesn't like happy endings!

Jude is a scum bag! I really grew to detest him. Everything seems so messed up- more than it was in book 1! Not sure if I want to read or listen to book 3. There's not many characters left to like! Poor Mrs McGregor has been dealt an unfortunate hand in life: as if things weren't bad enough!
