Rosemary SUTCLIFF (1957) The Silver Branch, Oxford Univ. Press (2007)
By Hugo Ferrer, 2º ESO B
I would like to recommend you the book The Silver Branch. It is a sequel of the novel The Eagle of the Ninth, written by Rosemary Sutcliff, an acclaimed writer of children's books, especially historical fiction, which is the genre of this book. I especially like this book because of the action and thrill there is in it. The two main characters, by forming a band of men, are trying to save the Roman emperor of Britain from a plot and also from the Saxons that are invading. There is a lot of suspense so it's very difficult to put it down.
