The Lovereading4Kids comment

Often the 2nd in a series is the weaker, but Julia Golding has surpassed herself here by delivering a totally gripping novel where once again good versus evil is the underlying theme but Connie has to get the better of a shapeshifter as well as someone who can kill just by looking.

Awesome stuff with an ecological twist and completely unputdownable. To read them in order start with Secrets of the Sirens, then Gorgons Gaze and follow that with Mines of the Minotaur. Be sure to check out the latest new title in the series The Chimera's Curse: Companion's Quartet: Bk. 4.

Col's difficult mother is the gorgon's Companion - and she's determined to save it.

Reviews

[Of Book 1, Secret of the Sirens]: 'I rated this book 5/5 because the story is so brilliant you simply have to read it. I would strongly advise this book so just buy it and read it!!!!!!!! Jenii, age 10 This book is the most excellent book I have ever read. Amazon review If you are looking for a book for a child of junior age or above (or their Mum or Dad!) who enjoys fantasy fiction, then this would definitely be a great choice. Amazon review This has all the ingredients of a must-read series. Publishing News I really like it - it reminded me of Susan Cooper's Over Sea Under Stone. Amanda Craig Crackles with tension TES
