    Review quote
    Praise for B.R. Collins: 'A writer of real power' Guardian Praise for The Traitor Game: 'A wonderfully gripping book for teenagers ... Brain food that's well worth feeding to your teenage boys - and stealing from them afterwards' The Times Praise for A Trick of the Dark: 'A multilayered, metaphysical thriller ... dark, uneasy and extraordinary' Big Issue Praise for Tyme's End: 'From the moment we see Oliver's grandfather in thrall to Jack, watching as the older man pulls the legs and antennae from a beautiful green beetle and places it back in the grass, it's impossible to put the book down' Guardian
