About the Author

Robert Dee has been writing fiction since the age of nine when a story he wrote about a werewolf buried in his back garden impressed his (easily impressed) classmates. Before Daisy Cooper he wrote mostly mature fiction - stories, novels, screenplays - and spent a short time in journalism.

I very much enjoyed the story, and would have liked to give it a higher rating. However, there were too many instances where 'your' and 'it's' were misused. This is irritating as I read, jerking me out of the story; and it is not a good example for children reading the book - who learn by example what is right and wrong. Please, Mr. Dee, double-check your editing. The possessive its does not have an apostrophe. "The helicopter aimed it's guns..." is not correct. "The helicopter aimed its guns..." is.
'Your' was misused for 'you're' a few times, but not consistently, so I believe it was simply overlooked. A good editor should have caught these mistakes.
Aside from that, the story itself and the style of the writing were very enjoyable.

I picked this book up as a freebie after seeing it in a blog post or email, I can’t quite remember which. I have to admit that it was the great cover that hooked me. I don’t even think I read the blurb. So, when I sat down to read it I had no idea what to expect, except perhaps that it would be a fun middle grade mystery.

Once I got into it, I realised that it was about a young girl from a background of average means, with above average intelligence and a good heart. When it was revealed that her mother had died of cancer I was sold, and felt a bond with Daisy, given my own young daughter’s recent battle with cancer (which she’s winning). Another issue that sits in this story is bullying … something that doubled my empathy and support for Daisy.

The plot cruised along as she settled into her new school, she made friends, and found enemies. I thought to myself that this was just going to be a cute tale of a new girl in a new school with maybe a little mystery thrown in. It’s not really what I’d normally get into, but I was cool with giving it a go.

Then when chapter 16 arrived, it all went into hyper drive. We were suddenly whisked from the pristine private school to a tale of pirates in a blur. One underlying theme that I noted in this one is definitely strong females – both good and bad. In fact, I think all of the main characters were female (I think it’s refreshing to see), which I’m sure would appeal to many readers bored with the usual male heroes.

As the pirate story progressed, there were some violent facets of the plot, which, based on the beginning of the book were totally unexpected. The change in pace hooked me and I became keen to finish the book and see how it all panned out.

I'll admit I'm old for this story but you should know that I often enjoy books for kids, teens, and young adults. In fact I've been known to give 5-Stars to such books when I felt they deserved it. That's why I was disappointed with "The Sisters of the Black."

First let me say that this is probably a great book for younger kids. Heck, even I really liked the beginning and thought I was going to love Daisy's adventures, but after I got deeper into the story my enthusiasm faded. It was a cute story idea, but for me it was too long and drawn out and just too unbelievable to swallow. I wanted to see how it ended so I did finish it but I had to skip over several pages worth of boring details to do it. For a less cynical person (or a much younger one) this would be fun, but for an older geezer it was asking too much. If the author had checked for typos/grammar errors better and had cut out some of the more ridiculous/unbelievable scenes then I'd have like it much more.

My conclusion: probably fun for younger children but stretches credibility for oldsters.

I read this book in one evening, missing several hours of sleep because of it. Loved the characters, loved the plot.

Grammatical errors disturb my reading easily (I'm not a native speaker and won't catch all mistakes), but I did not notice any errors unlike the other reviews.

I will definitely buy the next book in the series.

Format: Paperback
Daisy, unhappy at her ordinary, run-of-the-mill junior school, and far from looking forward to the transition to the next stage of education, wins a place at an unconventional boarding school, Darlington School for Girls. Here all sorts of bizarre opportunities present themselves and education moves to a whole new level. Pupils are taught maths using poker games, rockets are fired in science and biology involves real live animals from the school's zoo.
Having managed to get lost in the school's maze, Daisy discovers a secret society known as the Sisters of the Black Night. All activities of the Sister's take place under cover of darkness, presumably hence the name, and Daisy becomes highly suspicious of their activities. But she must make a few decisions first before choosing her way forward. Should she follow her dream of becoming an International reporter with the school magazine or should she expose the dark secret of the Sisters of the Black Night.
Daisy Cooper and the Sisters of the Black Night is a wonderfully old fashioned girl's adventure story of the sort not often found at the moment. And, not a single vampire or werewolf in sight!
Robert Dee clearly has a great imagination, and has put it all down here moving flawlessly from one escapade to the next. With a tight, highly entertaining and engaging plot, one very likeable heroine and some solid female supporting characters, this story is well worth reading. And, you certainly won't be bored with it.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all who enjoy fun filled fantasy and adventure.
