“Spellbinding: An excellent and well written book. I was captivated from start to finish. I don’t normally read fantasy novels as I find them a bit too ‘fantastical,’ but I enjoyed the escapism and adventure in this book.” (Steven Ray Montgomery, 5 stars)

“A fabulous book, extremely well written and engaging from start to finish. If you like the Harry Potter tales you’ll be sure to enjoy this. Just as much fun for adults as children. Thoroughly recommended!” (S Devon, 5 stars)
