'With quite, gothic undertones akin to Jane Eyre as the setting, the reader is immediately drawn into the quaintness. I liked it straight away, especially the writing style and the creepy vibes. Fans of more traditional gothic stories who don't mind fantasy thrown in at the end, who like lots of dark twists and secrets, will like this one.' - Booknest eu'A gripping storyline that will give you sleepless nights because you won't want to put it down.' - 5* reader review.'I haven't enjoyed a book so much in ages.' - 4* reader review.'A truly brilliant book that you won't want to put down.' - 5* reader review.'If you like dark fantasy to do with reincarnation, witchcraft, other worlds of the past, time travel, then you will really enjoy this first novel about The Knights of Aster.' - 5* reader review.'The storyline was fast-paced and well written.
