Sovay

by Celia Rees - £6.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747592013 | ISBN 10: 0747592012

Witch Child, Sorceress, Pirates! and now Sovay the pulse-quickening story of a young woman drawn into a world of highway robbery, dark intrigue and dangerous passions.
 
Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution and its impact on British politics, this action-driven novel shows once again that Celia Rees is one of our very best writers for teenage readers.
 
Wild and beautiful, spoilt and wilful, Sovay finds that her cosseted upbringing in rural England has not prepared her for life as a highway robber, for defending the honour of her family or for trying to save herself from corruption and evil.
 
As Sovay becomes more and more embroiled in adventures she could never have imagined, a story of dark intrigue, thwarted passions and sinister intentions is revealed to her. Will she be able to survive, and if she does so, at what cost?
