Reckoning

Book 1, Silver Blackthorn Trilogy

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

Description

In the village of Martindale, hundreds of miles north of the new English capital of Windsor, sixteen-year-old Silver Blackthorn takes the Reckoning. This coming-of-age test not only decides her place in society - Elite, Member, Inter or Trog - but also determines that Silver is to become an Offering for King Victor.

But these are uncertain times and no-one really knows what happens to the teenagers who disappear into Windsor Castle. Is being an Offering the privilege everyone assumes it to be, or do the walls of the castle have something to hide?

Trapped in a maze of ancient corridors, Silver finds herself in a warped world of suspicion where it is difficult to know who to trust and who to fear. The one thing Silver does know is that she must find a way out . . .

Reckoning is the first title in the electrifying Silver Blackthorn Trilogy from bestselling sensation, Kerry Wilkinson.

From Publishers Weekly

12 May 2014 – Twenty-five years after civil war tore England apart and beloved King Victor put it back together, the Kingdom's inhabitants eke out a precarious living with just enough shelter and food. Sixteen-year-old Silver Blackthorn and her best friend Opie face the annual nationwide Reckoning, where the young are assigned their level in society; a lucky few are selected as Offerings to King Victor and sent to Windsor Castle to help him forge a new future from the ashes of the present. Silver is chosen, naturally, and the Offerings soon find their fate is nightmarish, as Victor proves to be a sociopathic monster. British author Wilkinson creates a villain and a system so unpleasant that readers will long to see them destroyed, and the Offerings face as much danger from their companions turning on each other as from their dangerous circumstances. A strong voice and an intricate endgame help compensate for the mishmash of overfamiliar dystopian trappings in this first book in a planned trilogy. Ages 14 up.
