Reviews & Testimonials

[Stephenson]makes an entertaining emulsion of rhythm, danger, character empathy and the usual teenage dilemmas of getting to grips with hormones and emergent adulthood.

Tolkien and JK Rowling built empires out of this blueprint. If Stephenson can build on this debut and bring further riches to what he intends to be a trilogy, who knows where this could lead.

- Irish Independent

The book features more than just excellent pacing; Gabby shows extraordinary, inspiring courage as she comes to terms with being suddenly alone in the world.

- Connemara Journal

I thoroughly enjoyed it - didn't want to put it down,

- Brendan O Scanaill, Connemara Community Radio

By empathising with the tumult that accompanies growing up and injecting the right amounts of peril, fantasy and realism, whilst also keeping the language colloquial and un-cluttered, Alan Stephenson has constructed a character that could capture the imagination of the elusive teen audience.
