"W.J. Scott's historical adventure novel, Hieroglyph: TC's Adventures, Book 1, is exciting and fast-paced. TC wears gloves all the time, as she possesses some strange powers that allow her to travel back in time when she touches artifacts. I loved following along as she channels the story of the ancient Egyptians on their trip to Australia. TC and Max are marvelous characters who are fun to read about. Scott also brings the sights, sounds and wildlife of Australia to life in this story. Helle-Nielsen's illustrations are superb! They are precise and minimalist, and exactly suited to the story.
Hieroglyph: TC's Adventures, Book 1 is most highly recommended for adventure lovers of all ages."
Book Viral - Our Review......
"An enchanting,multi layered novel, Hieroglyph is the new YA Fantasy release from Wendy Scottand it's sure to grab your attention as she weaves her words with a magicaltouch, instilling each page with a compelling sense of adventure. Clearly, she's invested much by way of research to bring past and presenttogether. There's timely exposition which brings the mysteries of ancientEgypt to life whilst her young protagonist TC is confidently developed as alead character and certainly strong enough to carry a gripping series. Thesealone are reasons to turn the pages, but what ultimately prevails is an innatesense of familiarity as Scott plays to our innate need for answers.
Anentertaining and highly satisfying read, if Hieroglyph is your first novel fromScott, prepare to be hooked. Definitely deserving of a place on your bookshelf,it is highly recommended."
