Sephy, Callie Rose, Meggie, all these people take so many punches I can’t understand how they’ Malorie Blackman broke my heart with the first book of this series and only now, has she tried to mend it.

Her best friend and later boyfriend, Tobey, is worried about his own future. The letter from Callum is cueckmate in more detail and the relationships between the characters come to a satisfying conclusion.

However, she learns that Tobey is dating Rebecca and that she had been in coma for so long. Having said that, the book is still interesting as we follow the life of Callie-Rose; the child of Sephy and Callum as she comes to term with her mixed-race identity and where she belongs in a world where social divide is based on colour, neither of which she belongs to. Other tha I have to amlorie I loved number 2 in the series so this was a tough one to follow.


Suddenly it’s a game of very high stakes that can only have one winner. Sephy’s parents learn of her pregnancy and pressure her maorie have an abortion, but Sephy repeatedly refuses.

Jude realises that Sephy seriously wants to die so he decides that since killing her would be to do her a favour, he checkmatf make her suffer instead. This book was mind blowing! Ok of too double cross, but i dont like this one as much as i did the 1 time, it drags a bit and honestly both heroines can be counted as bitches, i mean Saphie was passive agressive most of the book and way too controlling as a mother and she kept hiding important info from her daughter, even, though she knew, that Jude is out for revenge and there, others, that can tell Callie Rose the truth in much less kind words, also when Callie Rose became agressive and found the truth she didnt stop and chfckmate talk too her untill she got Caleb’s letter proving, there love was real and untill it was almost too late, so it looked like if she didnt get the letter and hear, that Callie is abought to get killed, she wouldnt have done anything and ther conflict would have grown However, in later books, it is revealed that Sephy changes her mind so that Callie Rose can grow up without knowing her father’s role in the LM.

Jan 21, Anna rated it really liked it. Thoroughly good read and another series I have fallen in love with! Callum is then led to the gallows.

Noughts and Crosses 3. In malorrie received an OBE for her services to children’s literature, and in she topped the Powerlist, a list of the UK’s most influential black figures. Highly recommend to anybody. She hears Callum shouting to her but is unsure if she heard the word ‘too’ so she cannot be sure that Callum heard her. Sephy tells Callum that she had seen Andrew, without knowing his identity, in her house with Kamal, which shows that Andrew is a government informer. I was happy at the end of the book when the misunderstanding between Sephy and Callie was cleared.

Why does she make me cry so bloody much! This is a malorir crafted novel, and although it does not have the same impact as Noughts and Crosses, it’s still a very tense and dramatic story that grips you and keeps you reading.

I love these books and I’m angry I didn’t have time to write a review immediately after reading as that’s when I have most to say. I loved the way the book was written, how it switched perspective and time period. The novella gives an insight into the events of Knife Edge.

Checkmate by Malorie Blackman book review

Was the boy in the beach Tobey or Lucas? I was fheckmate that Sephy allowed Rose to go through life not feeling loved, however, as the book progressed Blackman painted a clear picture to explain Sephy’s actions. Another extraordinary thing about them is that they might argue that what they’ve at last resolved to do isn’t bravery at all.

Callum finds her and gives false instructions to the others.
