Noble Conflict

 

Noble Conflict, by Malorie Blackman.

This is a fabulous teenage/young adult novel.  Terrorism is a topic very relevant today, but one that is difficult to grasp for many young people.  A tough theme to tackle for any author, I think Malorie Blackman handles it superbly, in such a way that the issue of morality and terrorism, and the dangers of being misguided will be much better understood by youth readers.  In ‘Noble Conflict’, one young man’s journey to the truth turns his world upside down.  Right becomes wrong, good becomes evil.  With characters that will appeal to young adults readers, this novel is fast paced, and will give the reader a chance to see how, quite often in life the best of intentions can lead to hurt, if the truth is covered up, about how honesty and bravery can change the lives of everyone.  I will be sending a copy of this to my niece to read.  Recommended!

Synopsis

Years after a violent war destroyed much of the world, Kaspar has grown up in a society based on peace and harmony. But beyond the city walls, a vicious band of rebels are plotting to tear this peace apart. It is up to the Guardians – an elite peacekeeping force – to protect the city, without ever resorting to the brutal methods of their enemy.

When Kaspar joins the Guardians, he has a chance encounter with a rebel – a beautiful girl named Rhea. Haunted from that moment on by strange visions and memories – memories that could only belong to Rhea – he realises he hasn’t been told the truth about what the rebels really want, and what he’s really fighting for.
