Description


"...a strong, engaging read." CM Magazine

"A Dangerous Game is a pleasure to read. It's a fast-paced, exciting story with lots of accurate historical information...a great read and] a refreshing change from zombies, nasty girls and dystopian survivor novels...it showcases ordinary people at their best, bravely working together in terrible times." Historical Novel Society

An enthralling story of a young woman risking her life to free her country. Manon Wouters has an idyllic life in Belgian town of Damme, where she spends her afternoons cycling into beautiful Bruges to study nursing. But as Europe, and the world, erupt into a devastating war, teenaged Manon soon finds herself faced with unbelievable choices: should she run, hide or fight and, if the last, how?

After months nursing British soldiers in the UK and Egypt (where she meets Alec Shorecross, the young tunneller from Dark Terror), Manon is enlisted as a spy and returns to Belgium. As she toils away at the local hospital in Bruges, nursing injured enemy soldiers, no one guesses that she is collecting information and passing it on to the Allies. As 1917 progresses, zeppelins and huge Gotha bombers are devastating British cities and hordes of U-boats are sinking ships carrying vital supplies. Manon's tasks become more complicated and dangerous--can she help destroy a new German super bomber and discover vital intelligence on where the deadly submarines are being sheltered. As she races to fulfill her missions, Manon must confront enemies at every turn, sometimes even within her own family.
