‘Stop it! You’re all behaving like animals! Worse than animals – like blankers!’

Sephy is a Cross: she lives a life of privilege and power.

But she’s lonely, and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her.

They’ve been friends since they were children, and they both know that’s as far as it can ever go.

Noughts and Crosses are fated to be bitter enemies – love is out of the question. Then – in spite of a world that is fiercely against them – these star-crossed lovers choose each other. But this is love story that will lead both of them into terrible danger .

. . and which will have shocking repercussions for generations to come.
