In the media

Tingling with tension, super-charged and fast-paced, there won't be a second to lose until the last page has turned...
Lancashire Evening Post
A superb doomsday thriller for children - this is Stephen King suitably toned down for younger readers - edge of your seat stuff, brilliantly written...
Books Monthly
The theme of survival in a post-apocalyptic world is a familiar one but the twists in this story, which is packed with contemporary detail and just enough real science to validate it, make it so close to convincing that even cynical readers may be unnerved.
