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.
Kerry Wilkinson was one of two things as a child. If you ask him, he was a well-meaning, slightly hyperactive young man with an active imagination. If you ask his mother and/or teachers, he was a bit of a pain in the bum.
Kerry grew up playing ropey-looking computer games that you needed a keyboard for, being rubbish at football, and reading science fiction and fantasy novels.
The Silver Blackthorn trilogy is Kerry's first fantasy work. His other series, the Jessica Daniel crime books, are also published by Pan Macmillan.
He is also definitely not a pain in the bum.
