The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne Summary

The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne by Jonathan Stroud

Set in a broken, future England, where gunfights and monsters collide, this is the exciting first title in a phenomenal fantasy teen series by the bestselling children's novelist.

England has been radically changed by a series of catastrophes - large cities have disappeared and London has been replaced by a lagoon. The surviving population exists in fortified towns where they cling to traditional ways, while strangely evolved beasts prowl the wilderness beyond. Conformity is rigidly enforced and those who fall foul of the rules are persecuted: some are killed, others are driven out into the wilds. Only a few fight back - and two of these outlaws, Scarlett McCain and Albert Browne, display an audacity and talent that makes them legends.

The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne Reviews

You won't be able to put this down. A classic in the making. -- Eoin Colfer
Thanks to Albert's quirky likeability, Scarlett's insouciant bad-assery and the evocative setting, you soon forget the cliches and simply enjoy the ride. [...] In short, this is bleedin' brilliant from start to finish. And did we mention the giant otters? * SFX *

I've gone for the sheer entertainment and escapism of Jonathon Stroud's The Outlaws Scarlett & Browne, first in a series, and the perfect tonic to January lockdown. [...]

Stroud's talent for creating astonishing yet utterly believable literary worlds is well known - and this is another triumph. This adventure - starring a pair of charismatic anti-heroes, intensely cinematic action laced with characteristically dry wit, and a mash-up genres - crammed with gun fights, monsters and shadowy government operatives. Pitched for younger teens, but I expect discerning readers of 10 and up to devour it.

-- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
Perfectly paced, beautifully written and bursting with black humour and bold ideas. -- Philip Reeve
Imaginative, original, taut and with multi-layered protagonists... A wild ride. * Jo Cotterill *
