"...if you like dark fantasy, you will be engrossed, moved and intrigued by this intense adventure, whether you are a teen or an adult... a powerful fantasy and a riveting story."
"With brilliant characters and a fantastic world, Thief's Covenant is a story that'll keep you hanging on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last...the action just jumped off the page and came to life around you. Definitely don't start this if you only have a few minutes or so to read--you won't want to put it down! 10/10." -Word for Teens
"There is a wonderfully rich flavor to this YA fantasy, with its Renaissance inspired setting, personal pantheon of deities, and dark tone (it even dips a toe in the realm of horror). This is a story with satisfying heft, texture, grit and originality, and I really, really enjoyed reading it...Widdershins...has plenty of personality, is rash in a believable way, and her sheer willfulness is impossible not to enjoy...The relationship between [Widdershins and her parasitic deity Olgun] really made this novel for me-- it was equal parts inner commentary and snarky repartee-- and I really liked how Marmell explored their bond. All in all, Thief's Covenant is kind of like the dark chocolate of YA fantasy-- rich, complex, and satisfying...I'll definitely be picking up the next Widdershins Adventure."

"From the get-go [Planesrunner is] engaging, exciting -- practically unputdownable...In terms of character, too,
Planesrunner impresses. Though he rarely puts a foot wrong, making this rather a linear narrative, admittedly, Everett isn't some superhuman saviour... just a geeky genius with tablet computer, some sweet software and a life-or-death impetus to make the right choices when crunch-time comes, as it does in every other chapter... Planesrunner is the first novel is a series, and if the second and the third and so on (and so fourth) are anything like as exhilarating as this, it's a series that stands to redefine award-winning author Ian McDonald's place in the multiverse of speculative fiction." -The Speculative Scotsman

"Lightbringer is a hidden gem of complexity that completely envelops the reader in a world entirely different yet wholly tangible for the reader. Debut author, K.D. McEntire has created a mesmerizing and haunting tale rich with engaging characters, tense adventures and a guiding theme of love and trust that seals the deal for the story. Lightbringer might not be a name you have heard of before, but it is one that will surely be passed forward if you give it a chance."

Even more disturbing is the reason for it: the dead boy she identified at the hospital that afternoon--a boy who looks exactly like him. While examining his dead double's belongings, Ephraim discovers a strange coin that makes his wishes come true each time he flips it. But Ephraim soon realizes that the coin comes with consequences--several wishes go disastrously wrong.
