Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Whether Sutcliff is calling up the ale houses of Dublin or the battle-torn moors of Scotland, her descriptive language and dialogue transport readers back to a time and place not usually visited in young people's fiction" * Booklist * "The late Sutcliffe's take on the legend will appeal to both children and adults . . . This is great swashbuckling stuff, full of adventure and romance but with a darker edge than one would expect" -- Paul McGarvey * South Wales Argus * "Told in magnificent, rolling prose" * The Times *
