'A charmingly breezy middle fiction fantasy novel...[with] plenty of villainous twists...perfect for readers who aren't quite ready for Percy Jackson, and for when the later Harry Potter books are a little too scary.' * Books+Publishing * 'Escape into this absorbing magical adventure from a master storyteller.' * Kate Constable * 'Funny, raw, fantastic...The most exciting young adult writer writing in this country.' * Radio NZ *
