Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This thought-provoking sci-fi adventure offers universal appeal, excitement, and a one-of-a-kind hero whose courage and compassion will inspire any reader.” Children's Literature
“Few readers will be able to resist…teens will enjoy this first book in a planned trilogy.” VOYA
“McKinty, previously known for adult crime novels, brings an attuned ear for dialogue and a taut pacing to his first YA outing, the launch title in the Lighthouse Trilogy.” Publishers Weekly
“The middle book in McKinty’s trilogy offers both a new villain and heart-pounding action... Jamie’s decisions may be complicated by love, but his leadership has matured since his previous adventures, and Gerard Doyle gives his voice a new confidence. Doyle’s tone of cold fury as the Witch Queen of Balanmanik chills the calmest listener. As the story leads to a climax of epic proportions, Doyle’s pacing keeps the listener on pins and needles.” AudioFile
