‘The pacing is breathless and draws the reader through the story, desperate to find out what will become of Leon.’

– Eoin Colfer, Laureate na nÓg, author of the Artemis Fowl series

‘I would recommend this book because it is fast-paced and exciting. You really want to find out what happens to Leon and Louis. The book was of a high standard and inspired me to write my own stories.’

‘Rebellion in the Village is well worth the read, not only for the enjoyment of the novel itself, but also as a reminder of the terrific potential of our budding creators.’
