Reviews

'... a genuinely chilling atmosphere and unguessable plotting make for a compelling read. Whether you're in it for the fantasy, the thrills, the myth, the mystery or history there's something for every 9 to 13 reader, boy or girl...it's definitely one to recommend.'
--Eileen Armstrong, School Librarian Journal

'This is a great adventure story full of tension and a bit blood-curdling in places. It is a well-written story, very gripping and exciting. Excellent read!'
--Claire, Holyrood High, Teen Titles

Molly (age 12), Education Otherwise

'An involving and accomplished fantasy mystery by a Scottish writer fast establishing an enthusiastic readership.'
