Reviews

An intriguing first novel from a promising new author. Independent Completely gripping, edge-of-your-seat adventure. Bookseller Renner's story bristles with talent and brio, craft and polish. Times Vivid descriptions, intensely human characterisation and an original plot make this a stunning novel for young readers to enjoy.
