In the near future, after years of war, Britain is back to being ruled by a monarch. But this king hides his cruelty behind a friendly public face, leaving his subjects hungry and helpless.
That is until one teenager is chosen to serve him as an Offering. Silver Blackthorn becomes an unwitting figurehead for those who want change.
With the country crying out for a hero, it will all come down to the girl with a silver streak in her hair.
Kerry Wilkinson grew up in Somerset, UK, playing ropey-looking computer games for which he needed a keyboard, being rubbish at soccer (or "football" as he calls it), plus reading science fiction and fantasy novels. The Silver Blackthorn trilogy is his first fantasy work, though he is a successful crime writer.
