'A massively enjoyable opening of what promises to be a favourite series.'

'A nail-biting experience in a mesmerizing setting.'

'The author masterfully leaves readers sitting on the edge of their seats in suspense and wanting more.'

'Who'd have thought rips in space, wormholes, and vicious aliens could happen in such an idyllic place?

Couldn't put it down, and what a surprise ending!'

'People have said it's very much in the same vein as Harry Potter...

I don't think so myself - I believe it's far and away the better of the two.'

'A great read for someone who loves fantasy but isn’t completely involved in the science fiction worlds!

The epilogue alone will have you gasping for more!!'
