MALORIE BLACKMAN CHECKMATE PDF

The series is speculative fiction describing an alternative history in which native African people had colonised the European people , rather than the other way around, with Africans having made Europeans their slaves. The series takes place in an alternative 21st-century Britain. At the time of the series, slavery had been abolished for some time, but segregation, similar to the Jim Crow Laws , continues to operate to keep the crosses dark-skinned people in control of the noughts lighter-skinned people. An international organisation, the Pangaean Economic Community, exists. Seeming to be similar to the United Nations in scope but similar to the European Union in powers, it is playing a role in forcing change by directives and boycotts. The book Noughts and Crosses is an alternate reality fiction based in a 21st-century parallel universe.

To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. Can the future ever erase the past? Rose has a Cross mother and a nought father in a society where the pale-skinned noughts are treated as inferiors and those with dual heritage face a life-long battle against deep-rooted prejudices.

Sephy, her mother, has told Rose virtually nothing about her father, but as Rose grows into a young adult, she unexpectedly discovers the truth about her parentage and becomes determined to find out more, to honour both sides of her heritage. And as Rose takes her first steps away from Sephy and into this world, she finds herself drawn inexorably into more and more danger.
