“This has all the “ingredients” for a fantastical, magical, YA story that also caters to adults who absolutely love the Potter-esque world that happens maybe twice in a lifetime.”

– Reader Views

“Told in a fast-paced narrative voice with complex characters, the exhilarating fantasy will keep readers guessing until the very end—all while falling in love with the quirky cast. The book deserved to be made into a movie or a web series.”

– The Prairies Book Review

“What a dark, gripping, & suspenseful read! The writing is what blew me away the most about this-it’s phenomenal.”

– Belle’s Middle Grade

“A Harry Potter-type fantasy that will keep young readers enraptured from beginning to end.”
