So we should totally have waited, and put these both up at the same time.
It seems Kerl at Un:Bound has been kind enough to review Children's Crusade as well.
The book has a lot of action, and a solid plot as it reveals what’s happened and the events behind it. I’ll definitely be getting the other books to get the full details!
What grabs you though is that at St Mark’s the main actors are children. So the book deals with children from 13 upwards with guns and knives, taught to fight for their lives and resources under Jane's leadership, as well as the other teachers of the school. Think Hit-Girl on a large scale and you start to get the idea.
So she definitely seemed to enjoy it.
