Julie Anderson’s first historical novel, Reconquista, was long listed for the Mslexia Children’s Book of the Year, 2016, an international competition for women writers.
‘Lovely adventure with interesting history woven into the story, great material for world of games and cinema. Looking forward to the next in the series.’ Barbara Pidgeon, author
‘Reconquista is brilliant. It vividly brings the past to life.’
‘Excellent. This is a real page-turner.’
‘This teen/adult crossover book will have you gripped. I became immersed in the turbulent world of thirteenth century southern Spain.’
The sequel to Reconquista is The Silver Rings.
‘Fab book! I wish I’d had this kind of book to read when I was young as it’s an intelligent adventure with real-life people in realistic situations (in this case, war). It never talks down to the reader or make life seem easier than it actually is.’
‘This is a meticulously researched novel which conveys an authentic sense of its era. More to the point, it’s a rattling good yarn with a pleasingly satisfying ending.’
