Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman. 

No one could begin to guess at the depth of the hatred I held for Sephy Hadley. Everything began with her and my brother. And that's how it would end.

Where there has been love, now there is hate. 

Two families have been shattered by the divided and violent society they live in. 

Sephy Hadley - a Cross, supposedly powerful and privileged - has bound herself forever to her nought lover Callum McGregor's family.

But Jude McGregor blames Sephy for all the tragedies his family has suffered. And he is determined to force her to take sides and destroy her life...just like she destroyed his.... 

Voted as one of the UK's best-loved books, Malorie Blackman's Noughts & Crosses series is a seminal piece of YA fiction - a true modern classic.

Tan cruel...

No he podido parar hasta el final en busca de un momento de paz, siempre con el corazón en vilo.
La interpretación y la lectura fantásticas, con mucho sentimiento.

KE

It was cool but sometimes the acting was terrible and drony. The story is good but if not got others in series, do not get this one.

Eh

I loved Noughts and Crosses, so was excited to read the next one. I was disappointed when I realised it centered heavily around Jude, and Sephy's choices in this one made me roll my eyes. I finished it for good measure, but I won't be reading the next one.

Powerful story that finishes on a cliffhanger

Spoiler alert: Actually, I preferred this story to the first book Noughts and Crosses. I have read the third book and I hope Jude gets his comeuppance.

great follow up to a great original,

loved the first book and this whilst not quite as good was a suitable sequal.

glad to see the voice actors have changed as the first were unbareable.

the blurb of this novel is inaccurate.

I enjoyed the book.

The plot continues to capture the reader's attention but I felt misled by the summary. There is no mention of Callie 15years in the future and this particular book does not extend to exploring the future danger alluded to in the summary.

I am looking forward to finding out what happens next though.

It has to be listened to

If the shoe was on the other foot .... is it colour or human nature that makes us act as we do?

Must read below

The book is amazing it is breathtaking
However it's missing pages and words and you will be confused in where you are.
Overall based on the book it's fantastic, i may says do read noughts and crosses first.
