'A gripping, fascinating tale told by a master of his art, the prose flows easily and naturally, punctuated with flashes of dark humour, and always retaining an earthy reality, no matter how fantastic the scene.'
'Part His Dark Materials with echoes of some of Harry Potter's darker moments, Paul Bryers takes the reader on a page turning ride that is as enthralling as it is fantastic.'
'a fabulous book' [Kobal]
