Editorial Reviews

Review

"I really do love this series. Reagan, for me anyway, was the most fun as it delves into the mysteries of the white horses that dot the English countryside, as well as crop circles. The author does a great job mixing fact with fiction and by the end I really believed I understood the truth behind those mysteries. I loved following Reagan from geeky school kid to intrepid hero trying to save his community." - Andrea Domanski, Award-winning Author of the YA Omega Series

"A series that's hard to fault, Reagan continues Gray's swashbuckling saga with the kind of joie de vivre we've come to expect and it certainly won't disappoint. Book three is a fantasy laden adventure that benefits from meticulous research; the plot is compelling, the characters superb and the writing excellent. It's the kind of alchemy that, on the rare occasions it comes together, is hard to replicate. Terrific weekend reading for armchair adventurers, it is recommended without reservation." - Book Viral, Review site 

"This is an incredibly charming series. As much as I loved golden boy Archer, Reagan is the one who stole my heart. I notice the author claims to have been a 'geeky teen' herself, so perhaps that is how she nailed the character development, from geek to hero. (I also was a 'geeky teen' so I could be biased.) But it seems to me that the heart and wit and adventure, that are the author's style, are in full force in this third book." - Alice Bell, Bestselling Author of the Dark Enchantments series

"I think this is my favourite of Jacky Gray's Hengist series. I could really relate to Reagan's sweet awkwardness and found him really believable and so very human. His relationship with his family, mother especially, was well drawn out and totally relatable. All in all, a great read!" - S.M. Freedman, Award-winning Author of The Faithful

"I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Hengist series, but there is something about this one in particular that really speaks to me. I can't put a finger on it, but it has to do with the way the author spins this one out, with the mixing of the mystery and the mystical. Written cleanly, with life to the words, I was put in Reagan's village, dreaming his dreams and living along-side him." - Hannah Sullivan, Bestselling YA Author, Thunder 

"If you are new to the Hengist books, Reagan works well as a standalone novel. The book makes clever use of wit & humor to ease up the narrative whenever it gets too serious. As with the other books in the series, Jacky continues to write with a refreshing honesty; creating a reality that isn't unnecessarily padded up for the younger reader's benefit." - Moterwriter

"Reagan is a particularly well-developed character with many facets to his personality. On one hand, he is a son struggling to please his parents while also a young man whose talents win the respect of Malduc, the leader of the elder council. Ms. Gray does an excellent job presenting Reagan's internal psychological struggle between the teenager in him and the side of him that is a level-headed professional." - Veronica Richards, Bestselling YA Author, The Heartless Fey 

"I'm not a math nerd, but thoroughly enjoyed looking for patterns along with Reagan. I picked up this book because I have an unnatural obsession with the chalk horses of England and was not disappointed! This is a very good coming-of-age story which shows young people making decisions that will define them and shape them into persons of character." - Lisa Rikand, YA Author, Girl the Reaper

"Loving the series, loved the book. You know from the start with Jacky Gray that you are going to be taken on an extraordinary journey and the main characters in her books are going to be ones you immediately care about. With this series, the books are always good and, because the characters and settings revolve around a central theme, each story brings a different perspective to the overall story arch." - Karen E. Proctor, UK Amazon reader

"As an unwavering fan of the series I'm pleased to say Reagan met and exceeded my expectations. I've pretty much waxed lyrical on all the books in the series and this one is no different. An absolutely original series, well written, highly readable and above all addictive! If you haven't discovered these books yet, do take a chance on them as they are wonderful." - Danny, UK Amazon reader

"When you put all the books in this series side by side you realise what a wonderful achievement it is. The important thing for me is that the historical references are accurate and journeys by the characters take us through real moments in time. This adds a tremendously to the overall theme for the series but also makes each book a unique story and a great adventure." - Simon, Goodreads reader

"Just finished reading Reagan, it was a very interesting read. Geography, history, mathematics all stirred together in the same pot. The explanation of the chalk horses and the crop circles seems real. Strange thing - it might even have been true, not just fiction." - Nancy Dillow, Amazon reader

From the Author

I think of all the characters, this one resonates the most - I was that geeky teen who was never quite good enough. I loved the chance to explore the development of an awkward, shy boy who blossoms into a confident, witty young man under his mentor's guidance. I thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between Reagan and Kalen, and all the other adults he comes into contact with - again I remember being far more at home with adults than other kids my age. 

I have always be fascinated by Wessex's white horses and as the connections between them were revealed to me, I became immersed in the mysteries of the whole area, spending many a happy hour with maps and dowsing rods! I have been fortunate to meet a raft of fascinating people along this journey who have opened my eyes to the realities of earth energies and the truth about crop patterns. I only hope that I have done justice to Reagan's tale and maybe sparked off some questions that readers will be inspired to answer for themselves.

I am thrilled to have been awarded an indiePENdents Seal for reaching this esteemed body's exacting standards for spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting. Please let me know if you spot any typos which slipped through the net.

Here's one of my favourite scenes:
'And might we know the names of these two friends of Archer, son of Sedge?'
'I think it's better you don't know our names.' Kalen understood Reagan's idea and played along nicely.
'I see. A couple of highly-educated men, who make a secret of their names, working on a world-changing project. And claim to be friends of Archer, son of Sedge.' With each point, he looked at a different one of his men as though seeking their opinion. Each one stared back without expression, an oft-played sport. He rubbed his chin as he considered the idea. 'I don't suppose you can tell us more about the nature of this mission?'
Kalen too met the eyes of each Renegate, ignoring Reagan who shook his head, a look of desperation on his face. Finally, the tutor turned to the leader with a cool gaze. 'I could tell you more,' he paused dramatically, 'but then I'd have to kill you.' Looking casually at the others, he added, 'All of you.'
The man's face twitched for an instant as though he appreciated the game being played out here. He looked at Reagan. 'Could he do this?'
Reagan nodded gravely. 'Easily. With his bare hands.' He shook his head as though anticipating the carnage.
The leader matched his grave tone and shaking head. 'In that case, I have no choice ...'
