Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Seed Thief is one of those rare books which deliver on all fronts and leave you completely satisfied … The characters are subtly drawn; their relationships authentic and fascinating. The tension of the plot is perfectly taut throughout. Stylistically, the novel is flawless."
LitNet

"The Seed Thief is a richly sensuous experience and L’Ange an alchemist who has mixed an exotic and mesmerising potion."
Pretoria News

"[T]his story sings across its pages. It traces a tale of redemption and seeking love and truth with the beauty of a symphony. I have seldom read a book as beautifully imagined, executed and felt."
Cape Times

"The Seed Thief is a rich tale that is part quest narrative, part story of self-discovery and awakening … It’s a novel that feels like a dream you can remember for only an instant upon waking, and then floats away into the ephemeral, leaving behind only a warm glow and a desire for more."
Essentials

“While a passionate love story and a botanical mystery form the framework of the plot, L’Ange explores a myriad other fascinating themes and threads in this wide-ranging, lush and layered work… The Seed Thief is a richly sensuous experience and L’Ange an alchemist who has mixed an exotic and mesmerising potion.”
Avis Perks, IOL

“Who knew a tiny star-shaped seed from near-extinct tree could spark so enchanting, suspenseful, and intensely spiritual a tale as Jacqui L’Ange’s debut novel, The Seed Thief? …I lost myself in a story that is lovingly crafted with words that capture the minutiae of the tiniest elements of biology and the larger-than-life culture of South America’s biggest nation. The Seed Thief is a story of worlds beneath worlds within worlds, of surrendering to the splendour of chaos and the beauty of the mysterious.”
Andrea van Wyk, And the Plot Thickens

“L’ange’s lissom prose carries a sense of place, and purpose. Passion and betrayal ooze from Salvador’s streets.”
Business Day

“It traces a tale of redemption and seeking love and truth with the beauty of a symphony.”
Cape Times

“A beautifully crafted and poetically detailed story on bio-piracy set in South Africa and Brazil.”
