Review quote

"It's dark, it's daring, and it's full of thrills and chills" ~ Toni - My Book Addiction "Impossible to put down!" ~ Olivia - The Candid Cover Blog "Uber-cool and uber-creative" ~ Lynanne Carroll -Daybreak In Autumn Blog 'To say I enjoyed this book would be the understatement of the century ... The story is very well paced, keeping you on your toes throughout ... Young adult or not, this is a book anyone into sci-fi and a bit of mystery will love this. Enjoy' The Reading Head 'Ignite the Shadows is so fast-faced and action-packed that I found myself tearing through the pages ... A good sci-fi with a very fast-paced and intriguing plot. The revelation in the epilogue has left the door open for an exciting sequel which I'm looking forward to reading' Nicola Reads YA 'This book sucks the reader into the story right from the first chapter. It is packed so full of action that readers will not want to put it down ... The author also has a flare for describing complex emotions and perfectly captures the awkwardness and confusion of first love' Amie's Book Reviews 'I had a hard time putting it down ... A sci-fi/fantasy novel that seems incredibly real and has a lead female character so gutsy, sarcastic, and strong, that you can't get enough of her. Which means you can't get enough of the story. Which means you've just been hooked and you don't want to be free ... I loved Ignite the Shadows and definitely recommend this to everyone' Fishing for Booksshow more
