GHOST HAWK is the work of a writer with great imaginative power and
long-practised narrative skill. I was swept up in the story,
shocked, moved, and enthralled - and completely convinced by the
historical background. I haven't read anything better for a long
time. * Philip Pullman *
Moving and long lasting, this is rich storytelling, and is probably Susan Cooper's finest work so far -- Marcus Sedgwick * Guardian *
