    1. I enjoyed this book but I think the series should have ended on the last book as this one seemed pretty unnecessary and didn't add much to the overall series.Double Cross was definitely good but it was my least favourite out of the series as it follows a pretty irrelevant character,Callie's best friend,Tobey.I did enjoy the story but I feel it would have been better as a stand alone and not associated with the series.The book was still fantastic as Malorie creates an amazing story again while st [...]


    2. Set in a dystopian 21st century near future British society – the ‘Noughts & Crosses’ award winning series of novels (initially a trilogy, subsequently extended to a quadrilogy) opens following a period of alternative history, a post slavery period where the white population (Noughts) have been enslaved by the ruling black elite. Now post emancipation, it is the non-black population who are distinctly disadvantaged and impoverished in this alternative future society which is ruled and [...]


    3. This is the best series I have ever read.I cried ok I CRIED WHEN I FINISHED IT.I loved all the characters, especially Callum and Tobey.So glad I marathoned it and I would recommend it to anyone. It's so gripping, hard-hitting, action packed and I became obsessed.Bye bye noughts and crosses :( <3


    4. 2.5This book took me the longest time to read and I stuck it out because I absolutely devoured the first three books in this quartet but as it seemed to me while I was reading this, it really was a waste of my time. This book follows a character who is completely irrelevant in the rest of the books and his story was very uninteresting and didn't leave me with anything. I hear this book was an afterthought anyway and this series was originally going to be the first three books which is how I choo [...]


    5. Having been a HUGE fan of the "Noughts and Crosses" series, I was somewhat anxious about this fourth novel. The third book had drawn everything to a nice close, and to be honest, I couldn't really see where the characters could be taken now. Luckily, my doubts were unfounded. What was especially nice about this book was that it draw away from the Callum/Sephy storyline and created a whole new story based on the relationship between Callie and Toby, whilst still referring back to the original and [...]


    6. Toby is in love with his best friend, Callie. Which is more than enough to deal with for your average hot-blooded teenage guy. But in Meadowbrook, there’s a lot more in the picture. Like the racial turf war being fought by the two kingpins who are busy holding everyone down. And the corrupt cops who no one can trust, especially when you’re a nought like Toby. And like Dan, Toby’s childhood friend who asks for help delivering a package. An assignment Toby knows he shouldn’t accept.What he [...]


    7. Not really sure what I expected from this book. Tobey was a great character in all except his weakness for Callie, who was as annoying as ever. She suffers from a horrible disease which has symptoms of bitchiness, moodiness and erratic behavior. Diagnosis: insecurity. Sephy was also annoying; you would think that she wouldn't be so quick to judge and separate Callie and Tobias after her own experiences with Callie. Speaking of which, did anyone else see the parallels? Or was that supposed to be [...]


    8. Ok so SPOILERS obviouslyAvert eyes now!!!I miss him that's all I really have to say, (you know who I mean or maybe you don't) and every time his name was mentioned it was like the wound was opened again. So I think his death at the end of the last book was perfect, devastating but perfect for the character and clearly the end he was always running towards. But in the early stages of 'Double Cross' I began to have a small feeling of doubt, could he have survived, somehow I couldn't completely pu [...]


    9. When I heard about this book coming out I went crazy. I looked everywhere for spoilers (something I am telling you NEVER DO), and all I found out was that it was going to involve drugs and gangs. I waited months for it to come out, and read it in two days (which involved my English teacher threatening to convincate it because I stayed up to midnight reading XD). And it didn't disappoint. It was as fantastic as all the rest.In many ways it was more like Noughts and Crosses than Checkmate and Knif [...]


    10. Double Cross gave me the teen-romance I'd been missing on in Knife Edge and Checkmate. Tobey and Callie, now grown up, have to deal with the same hardships Callum and Sephy had to deal with back in Noughts and Crosses. And Callie still has to deal from the fact that she isn't one-sided, a Nought or a Cross, she is somewhere in the middle. Tobey, who I loved since we first met him, gets pulled into the world he vowed he would never be involved him. He fights to prove that he will find a way out a [...]


    11. I still found this book gripping but feel it lacked the whole theme running through the other books. It didn't have the same focus on noughts and crosses and the fight for equality as the others did. It barely mentioned it in some cases. Still thrilling but I don't feel like it should have ended the way that it did.


    12. This is the fourth installment in the Noughts & Crosses series which focuses mainly on Tobey and his relationship with Callie and how he gets mixed up with the wrong people without really wanting to. There is no Liberation Militia in this book, only two rival gangs with Tobey in the middle. It shows how money, or the lack of it, can be the motivation for good kids to do bad things.Most of it is written through the eyes of Tobey and although we do get to hear Callie Rose at the very beginning [...]


    13. This book finalises the Noughts and Crosses series. I think many people don’t realise that this book does have four instalments and that’s because Checkmate seemingly wraps up the story. I don’t think it’s an essential read to ‘finish’ the Noughts and Crosses series, but I think it is an excellent addition to a very well written series.You won’t come across Callum and Sephy’s relationship in this story. Sephy is included, of course, but Double Cross follows Tobey and Callie Rose. [...]



    14. If this had been a stand alone novel I'd have given it four stars. I'm taking away a star because it's an unnecessary part of the series. Full review in the next few days.FULL REVIEWTo read my pre read thoughts and reasons for rating please visit my blogFrom the Shadows I Review Well, this is a hard one to review. Partly because I feel that this book is good and partly because I feel that being part of the ‘Noughts and Crosses’ series ruins it. I mean ruins because it didn’t have to be, th [...]


    15. This is the worst yet! Completely off topic, it hasn't got to do with anything!!! it now drones on a bit, clever boy but boring almost definitely. This book is like an over dose of sleeping beauty. The main character is sleeping the whole entire book and the prince is left to save her, only the fairies have left him locked up for a couple of years, leaving him to sit there doing nothing.


    16. As much as I adored the previous books in this series, I have to admit that, sadly, I found “Double Cross” somewhat underwhelming.The other three books were nothing less than addicting. I couldn’t and didn’t want to put them down; I wanted to keep reading, to get through more chapters, to uncover what happens next and dive deeper and deeper into the rush and excitement of falling in love with a book and its characters. With “Double Cross”, however, I was disappointed to realize that [...]


    17. This review assumes that you have read all the previous books in the series, and thus will contain spoilers with regard to those stories. This fourth book in the slightly misnamed trilogy picks up shortly after the explosion that ended Checkmate, and Callie Rose is working through the trauma and guilt based on that. Unfortunately, I didn't find that to be quite enough to hang the novel on, and my attention drifted between annoyance at the stupid choices one of the characters made, and impatience [...]


    18. A very good book. I wasn't too sure whether I actually liked this book because up until 3/4 of the way through, the events were dramatic but you didn't necessarily need to read the book. I was mostly confused as to why I needed to read this as the ending for Checkmate left everything on good terms however, I now regret thinkin this and I am very glad that I have read it. I stood corrected at the end as the ending was imperfectly perfect with a dramatic ending which could well lead into another b [...]


    19. A magnificent finale! I thought that Double Cross will be quite like Noughts & Crosses, & Tobey & Callie's story will be like Callum & Sephy's, but it wasn't. It has it's own twist to it, and best of all it didn't end in despair. Tobey & Callie's love story was successful, it didn't end in a tragic note like how Callum & Sephy's did, and I salute Malorie Blackman for that. Readers were very unhappy with the tragic events that had happened in the first 3 books, then Callie [...]


    20. 3.5 StarsI started reading this series a couple of years ago and only in the last month or so decided to pick the last 2 books up and actually finish a series for once. And I'm really really glad that I did.Although the last 2 books to this series probably aren't my favourites, I feel that the conclusion to them was everything I wanted and definitely made me realise I was more connected to the characters than I thought.I think that if I'd carried on reading the books in a closer concession I pro [...]


    21. The book wasn’t actually very good in my opinion. I mean I enjoyed the series but I felt it dragged on a lot and included irrelevant characters. Although Malorie is an incredible writing I couldn’t seem to get into this book and found it harder to read compared to the first 3.


    22. J'ai un peu de mal à comprendre ce tel engouement pour cette saga D'accord, le contexte de l'histoire est très intéressant mais c'est tout. Ce sont des livres durs, c'est peut-être pour ça que je n'ai pas tellement accroché. Les personnages ne sont pas attachants et sont énervants au plus haut point, surtout Sephy. C'est bien la première fois que je n'aime aucun personnage d'un livre Bref, j'avais vraiment hâte d'en finir et de pouvoir passer à autre chose.


    23. So, Blackman should have ended as she had planned, and left it at Checkmate. This one was completely out of character with the rest and came off sort of weak.In the first three books, no one was safe, and that got worse along the way until some sort of peace was found. In this, Blackman succumbed to the ways of Hollywood and their happy ever after loving endings.Can't say that I'm not disappointed.


    24. I can't believe one of my favourite series of books are over. However I am slightly disappointed with the last book. I personally believe that Blackman had a fantastic end to the third book and that the fourth book was simply unnecessary. I can't say I didn't enjoy it but sometimes authors need to know to stop whilst you're ahead. Did I love it as much as the others? No. Did it ruin the series for me? No. Was it really needed? No again.





    25. "Was that all love did for you? Made you give up and give in? Left you open to pain and hurt?"It was a bleak October and I had been in search of something that could satisfy my needs for a good, engaging book series. It was during that month that I found the Noughts & Crosses quartet lined up neatly on the shelves of my local library. Ah, to be young and in love. That was how I felt reading this series. Opening the front cover of the book revealed that I was the first to have borrowed the se [...]


    26. Loved the Noughts and Crosses series! You really feel like you're inside the storyline and I feel like the concepts in this collection of books will resonate in my mind.
