Anais from Year 8, Hayfield School:

Noble Conflict is an amazing book. It has many twist and turns,
up and downs but it is worth the read.
It is about a boy called Kasper who is just graduating from the
Gurdian acadamy. At the beginning is an attack and Kasper helps
save the day.
My favourite character is Kasper because even though his Uncle
wants him to stay on the from he goes out and does what he
wants to do and becomes succsessful.
This is a good bokk like the other Malorie Blackman books. I
would defenitly recommend this

Owen from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

Noble Conflict is a brilliant book about war between different
groups. Kaspar willingly works for the Alliance and has to
stun his enemies. The book is full of lies and you cannot
trust anyone. Kaspar tries his best to understand why the
'ninjas' kill themselves and why didn't Rhea, an enemy, kill
him. Want to know? Thne read the book.

Stephen from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

Noble Conflict is a brilliant book and I would recommend it to
anybody who likes lot of action also with futuristic vehicles,
guns and computers. The main character is called Kaspar and is
a guardian. He meets a strange women who is a ninja and there
are insurgents who are fighting against the guardians.

Kalli from Year 8, De Warenne Academy:

I personally did not like this book. I do not mean people
should not read because belive me i gave this to a family
member over the holidays and they loved it but i dont find it
that interesting. I think people who like adventure books can
really get into it but im just not one of them. I would not
call this the worst book that ive read but it does not catch
me.This book on what ive read of it is about conflict and the
front cover suggests war which does not draw me to it. I would
recomend this book to people who like adventure but its not a
particular book for little children. All in all this is my
oppinion i do not like this book but read it if you want
to...

Casey from Year 8, Ridgewood School:

Malorie Blackman's latest teen novel is an intriguing read - a
tale of morality and a world of deception where nothing is ever
as it seems. Blackman weaves a masterful story with a cast of
great characters - exciting and overall an excellent novel!

Rachel from Year 7, Rossington All Saints School:


Noble conflict is an exciting book about an army trying to
protect their city from the insurgents .But Kasper soon
realises the dark secret about the so thought good side.
Adventure and a little bit of sadness thrown together to make a
thrilling book. This book is aimed at people who like stories
that are exciting and have a twist to them. It was good because
it kept moving and wasn’t boring. I thought it was a very
good book and I rate it 4 stars.

Helen from Year 8, De Warenne Academy:

my book "Noble Conflict" isa good book for people who like
action and war. I am not a fan of this but i have ranked it
7/10. This is because in particular i love Malorie Blackman and
the books she has wrote. I would recommend this book any day
but it is the fact i dont like the style. The book is quite
boring at first but once the action broke off it was quite
exciting.

Abby from Year 10, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

Noble Conflict is about two societal groups: The Alliance who
live inside the cities and the Crusaders who live in the
Badlands. It's set on a post-apocalyptic Earth, which is mostly
covered in harsh deserts due to humans trying to shift the
tectonic plates to make the land more prosperous, but their
plan backfired turning the land into desert, later named the
Badlands. The Crusaders are left to survive in the Badlands,
whereas the Alliance live peacefully and prosperously. The
Alliance have an "army" named the Guardians, who serve the
Alliance by protecting other citizens against Crusaders who
attack the city, trying to take the land from the Alliance. The
Guardians are civil, unlike the Crusaders, so they only use
weapons that stun, trying to make a peaceful world where there
is no war or turmoil.

The story follows a new Guardian, Kaspar, who is struggling to
see which side is good and which is bad, after he meets a
Crusader, who saves his life, this haunts him as he has been
raised in a society that perceives those who live in the
Badlands to be bad.

The main character is Kaspar, and deservingly so, it was
extremely entertaining reading of his fight to discover the
truth about the "peaceful" society he lives in.

I really enjoyed reading Noble Conflict and recommend it to
anyone who likes an unpredictable book that's full of plot
twists and adventure.

Sam from Year 8, Rossington All Saints School:

Noble Conflict Review
A remarkable concept with a cunning twist to throw the reader
of balance. You also as you read start to empathise with both
the protagonist and antagonist as you see the real truth
unfold. No matter what the main character can do he always
seems to be doing something wrong so you start to really get a
feel for him. 10/10

daniel from Year 9, The Armthorpe Academy:

this book gave me a great in sight on how the author malorie
blackman writes her book its complexity and attention to detail
was incredible it has all the characteristics of my favourite
book and the author is a absolute favourite of mine the tittle
was carefully picked so it gave nothing away even after all the
books that ive read this one is rated very high with me and
some members of my family that i have recomended it to the
idea of peace was just a ruse and the overal summary of the
story line came to me as i started to get really into this book
the author of this book has bags of imagination and tons of
creativity she has a flare for writing things that kids will
love as i liked this book very much

Bradley from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I really enjoyed this book and i think it had a really cool
story line to it but some words were quite hard to read and it
was a big book recommended to ages 12+ or
year 7+

Kalli from Year 8, De Warenne Academy:

This book is not a book i would tend to read but would
recomened to others who like action and war. The reson i dont
like it was the stye and through out the book i was alternating
between liking and disliking the book, the reason i was
changing my mind so much was because at first it was so boring
and dragged on and on but it was better as it went along. I
gave this half marks because it is not he style i am into but
if i was it would b a very good book.

Daisey from Year 9, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

Wow, this book surprised me big time, I expected to hate it
butIi am finding myself wanting to read more of this category.
My fav character is Rhea she is trying to help him see that he
is doing wrong even if it is in her own way. I also love Mac
because she is so fun and cool I just really like her . My fav
scene is where they'e in the desert (spoilers) It really
shocked me because I did'nt expect that to happen. I would and
have recommended this to over year 5s because it has got some
swearing in but not lots. Great book 9/10

Brooke from Year 8, De Warenne Academy:

I was put off this book for a while since my friend said it
wasn't very good. But we were reading Nought's and Crosses in
English and I was enjoying it. And I'm a fan of books set in
the future so I decided to read it. for me up until Dylan died
I couldn't put the book down. But after Dylan died I just got
confused. I had to re-read the part where Voss died because I
couldn't keep up. The best part of the book is where everyone
found out who Kasper's parents were. I would recommend this
book to people who like futuristic stories.
