The Irish Times
“Treachery, not trust, propels this dizzying whirl of subplots with an obligatory threat to the universe and a cliffhanging, surprising ending.”
Mary Shine Thompson, The Irish Times
“All in all this is an excellent addition to the series and moves the story on to a completely different level. By the end of the book everything has changed again and the cliffhanger ending hooks you again and keeps you hanging on desperately for the next book.”
Andrea Chettle, http://www.fantasybookreview.co.uk/Michael-Scott/The-Necromancer.html
“I cannot stress enough my complete admiration for Michael Scott and the incredible story he created intertwining fiction with historical facts and legends...The characterisation is for me one of the strongest point of this series, after the plot and story-telling!...The ending will keep you at the edge of your seat: wow! I can't say anything, but you will clearly be quite impatient for Summer 2011 and the release of The Warlock!”
“It is captivating, it is gripping and above all else, and it is a tale that was incredibly hard to put down...Definitely one of our tips for the Summer months.”
