Readers’ Comments
‘A pretty intense read. Complex and also totally enjoyable.’ Female reader. aged 15
‘The two world idea is clever and well thought-out. I also liked the relationship between the two central characters.’ Male reader, aged 15
‘Cool book packed with excitement and lots of adventure. I enjoyed it very much. Just a note on the cover and title. The cover looks as if it belongs on a religious book. Also, the title is poor and lacks punch. It needs to be catchy.’ Girl reader, aged 15
‘The cover was all wrong and didn’t fit the book. However, the story is excellent. The writing style is a little monotonous, but it is pacey. I think this author has a wild imagination.’ Girl, aged 15
‘Strong opening with the death of the boy. Present tense always feels so awkward to me. Language still was good. Short, sharp with plenty of pace.’ Boy, aged 16

To Sum It Up:
‘A fast-paced fantasy adventure YA will enjoy.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
