Chaos Walking Trilogy
Carnegie Medal? Tick. Booktrust Award? Tick. Costa Prize? Yup: that too. War, power, mind-control: this is getting silly. Just read it, hey? Patrick Ness’s epic saga is like watching a frontline newsreel from a brutal future war. Blistering power: it feels as raw as salt scrubbed into your skin. Imagine: a New World of men. A virus that forces all those men to hear each other’s thoughts. A terrible secret they’ll do anything to hide… When a boy – the last boy – learns he has been lied to. When a convoy arrives from another planet. That’s when all-out war will tear the world apart.
