    • I found this a real page turner; it may be officially YA, for twelve or over – but it is not a book with an appeal restricted to a particular age group, It is laugh-out-loud funny, intriguing and sad in turns. At the climatic scene, where the protagonist Silas is briefly given his own particular hearts’ desire – only to have it snatched away – I found that there were tears in my eyes. That is a compliment indeed to the writer, as these days, after all reading so many novels, I am hardene [...]


    • After a lifetime of reading fantasy novels this one has me so excited. While some of the content seems familiar enough, with faeries, sword fights, love, loss etc etc, it is so refreshingly different in it's execution that I could not stop smiling (or reading!).

    • "Jo’s little gem deserves to be published"Book Review by Hilarie Stelfox in Huddersfield Daily Examiner (May 2010)"I was hooked from the first few pages – and mightily relieved to discover that it is extraordinarily well written by someone with a finely-tuned sense of humour.

    • I LOVED this book so much. The characters are fabulous and Jo Danilo's imagination is amazing. She writes beautifully and is a new JK Rowling in the making.
