Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s a thrilling, gory, head-rushing adventure.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“More than just a whodunnit, Wild Boy and the Black Terror explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and alienation.” VOYA
“The enticing pace, appealingly macabre locations, and steampunk-tinged Dickensian atmosphere is engrossing … Kids who liked Christopher Edge’s penny-dreadful-style Twelve Minutes to Midnight will likely love this, too.” Booklist
