Knife Edge

Book 2, Noughts And Crosses

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



Sephy is a Cross, one of the privileged in a society where the ruling Crosses treat the pale-skinned noughts as inferiors. But her baby daughter has a nought father . . . Jude is a Nought. Eaten up with bitterness, he blames Sephy for the terrible losses his family has suffered . . .

Now Jude's life rests on a knife edge. Will Sephy be forced, once again, to take sides?

A razor-sharp and intensely moving novel, the second in the Noughts & Crosses sequence.

Customer Reviews


Very good, but not as good as other books in the series.

Give it a go!

I seriously recommend the noughts and crosses trilogy, to all readers who adore suspense and action. You may find that this book is covered in glue, since you won't be able to put it down!!

Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman

I really enjoyed reading Knife Edge, although I didn't find it as enjoyable as Noughts and Crosses, the first book in the series. I loved the fact that it switched between different characters points of view a lot, and the ending was very dramatic. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there wasn't as much drama as there was in the first book, however, it's still one of my favourite books and I'm really looking forward to reading Checkmate! :)
