Craft and creativity in equal measure.
on 4 August 2013
It is not often a children's fantasy adventure novel comes along which is as deftly written stylistically as it is engrossing in it's story; here we have something that hooks you from the off, combining clever characterisation, a plot that is both convincing yet surprising, set in a world that is perfectly poised between familiar, and strange and new. The result that we have here, is a cracking page-turner that would appeal to children and adults alike. I strongly recommend it.
