Format: Paperback
Two things, its been a very long time since i read any of this author but what stuck in my mind was how good they were. I'm a seasoned adult so not the target audience, but i would reccommend to anybody, the author draws alot on theology, and the occult that being the enemy, not as obring as it sounds. There were times i was genuinely scared reading this, and with more depth twists and turns than a deep twisty thing. Sorry this review is not so detailed like i say its been a while (10yrs) but a good read. I found my self really caring about the characters, very evocative writing, you really feel like you are there. i remember sitting up by torch light to read it on holiday so as to not disturb my husband. Dont be put off by the lack of reviews, if you liked pullman and rowling you will enjoy this, however i don't think the comparison with HP is that helpful, it s a different book completely.

Format: Paperback
After all the hype about being 'the next Harry Potter', this book proved a bit disappointing. It's a sort of cross between Harry Potter and the old 'smuggling' novels like Du Maurier's Jamaica Inn and Falkner's Moonfleet, in which the vicar always turns out to be the bad guy. But I'm not sure how much the gothic undertones really fit that milieu - the magic seems a bit out of place among smugglers and pistols. The other thing is that, if you're comparing it with Harry Potter, the characters aren't as engaging or well worked out - there's a lot more description and details but somehow it doesn't quite hit the spot. My daughter quite enjoyed it, though, so I'm giving it 3 stars.

The writer is quite brilliant... at self-promotion. He's a genius at banging on about how he's "the new C.S. Lewis" and "hotter than Potter" when both are laughably untrue. This is story is a collection of paper-thin characters racing about in a pointless plot, with occasional pauses for Christian worship. There's simply no story there and the writing is toe-curlingly bad.
