    The Wordsmith

    Winner of a White Raven Award

    Letta loves her job as the Wordsmith’s apprentice, giving out words to people who need them. It doesn’t strike her as odd that the people of Ark are only allowed to use a few hundred words, and words like ‘love’, ‘hope’ and ‘freedom’ are banned.

    When her master disappears, Letta starts to understand that all is not well - John Noa, the ruler of Ark, is out to destroy language altogether. Letta has to find a way to stop him silencing what is left of the human race.

    But she’s only a young girl, and he’s the leader of the known world ...

    Mother Tongue

    After global warming came the Melting. Then came Ark.

    The new dictator of Ark wants to silence speech for ever. But Letta is the wordsmith, tasked with keeping words alive. Out in the woods, she and the rebels secretly teach children language, music and art.

    Now there are rumours that babies are going missing. When Letta makes a horrifying discovery, she has to find a way to save the children of Ark – even if it is at the cost of her own life.
