"Book One of The Sanheim Chronicles is a brilliantly plotted roller coaster read, and I loved every page of it...The story is gripping from the off, drawing you in to a rich and believable world. But this isn't any old world, there's a heavy dose of fantasy lurking behind the scenes."
"Blackwell has woven a Celtic myth, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and a serial killer's rampage into a great novel... When everything came together and all the pieces finally fell into place I was completely shocked. The ending was fantastic."

"It was also interesting to explore how debilitating fear can be and howpeople react to it with fight or flight, how fear freezes you to the spot whenyou know you have to hurry and get away from the killer. I'm vague on purpose,peeps. I don't want to give you any spoilers. I just want you to read thisbook. It's really, really good."
