Twilight Robbery.... as part of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize Club
What I would say is, you simply have to read both of these books. They are adventure stories, (alternative) historical fiction, fantasy... books involving issues such as friendship, loyalty, belonging... with a bit of politics and revolution involved. And basically, especially because they are so well-written with brilliantly described characters and a beautifully imagined world, they are cracking reads. Fly By Night remains one of my all-time favourites.... what do you think?
