Rebels by Russell Gascoigne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Tom and Rab knew when they joined Parliament's rebel army that life would be tough: the cold; the hunger; the bloody battles. But the real danger begins when the boys are ordered to help Captain Hyde with his secret mission: to find a holy relic said to bestow supernatural powers on its owner. In an England ripped apart by civil war, the two friends follow a trail that leads them from country manor to remote farm house; castle dungeon to abandoned monastery - with the Kings' men never far behind. Always in danger, forever trying to keep one step ahead, can Tom & Rab find the Spear of Destiny - and help the rebels to victory? Lots of action, larger-than-life characters, romance, comedy and thrills, this is that rare thing - a really entertaining historical adventure.

Author Biography

Russell Gascoigne is a scriptwriter whose credits include the top-rating A Touch of Frost Rebels is his first book for children. He lives in Cardiff. He says of it, "For a long time I wanted to write an adventure story with a strong plot and plenty of cliff-hangers - sort of a Tom Sawyer/ Huckleberry Finn meets Indiana Jones. Then I became interested in the Spear of Destiny - a real holy relic - and the story grew from there." Russell lives in Cardiff with his wife and two boys, who were his guinea pigs for Rebels - he would read them bits as they were written and if his sons approved, he knew it was good!
