The Blood Guard
After the family home is burned down under mysterious circumstances, 13-year-old Ronan and his parents moved to another town.
But normal life is not resumed for long as Ronan discovers his father has been kidnapped and he suddenly finds himself in a speeding car driven by his mother, who is far from who she seems.
Ronan soon realises why his mum put him into so many self-defence and survival courses. Now he must put his abilities and skills to good use as he is pursued by sword-wielding bad guys and forced to join forces with some unlikely allies.
Think Anthony Horowitz meets Dan Brown and be prepared for a fast and spectacular ride in this first book in a series.
