Product description

A rip-roaring historical adventure set at the time of the Guy Fawkes’ Gunpowder Plot – winner of the Historical Association Young Quills Award! ’ ... a wonderfully explosive adventure set in the turbulent year of the gunpowder plot in Black Powder with impossibly divided loyalties.’ JULIA GOLDING, AUTHOR OF THEDIAMOND OF DRURY LANE

‘With its constant reversals and twists and turns, Tom’s story is almost as complex as the pliot and counter-plot of the Gunpowder Treason itself … The writing is lively and the pace never flags.’ HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY

England, 1605: 12-year-old Tom must save his father from hanging.

He falls in with a mysterious stranger – the Falcon - who promises to help him in exchange for his service.

But on the long journey to London, Tom discovers the Falcon’s true mission – and a plot to blow up Parliament with barrels of black powder.

Tom faces a terrible decision: secure his father’s release, or stop the assassination of the king …

A rip-roaring, action-packed life-and-death quest, packed with history and adventure

Set at the time of the Gunpowder Plot and featuring Guy Fawkes – perfect for Bonfire Night and beyond

Ideal for readers aged nine and up
