  • A swashbuckling drama that shows that Aiken's imagination never dimmed

    Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
  • Playful, urgent and wildly inventive, Aiken's language is always potent. Readers with a taste for mystery and complexity will find much to savour

    Publishers Weekly
  • As fantastic as any of its predecessors . . . Richly imagined and superbly told, this adventure is a welcome extension to the series and will doubtless gather new readers to boot

    John Malam, Manchester Evening News
  • A writer of wild humour and unrestrained imagination

    Oxford Companion to Children's Literature
