What the reviews are saying:
‘Melbourne author Foz Meadows has written a well-plotted novel…Solace is such an appealing character as she learns to accept who she is. It’s a little Scooby-Doo, a little bit Buffy and a lot of fun for readers 15 and up.’ – The Sunday Age
‘…a clever and funny supernatural romp, with a chilling underside to it…a smart and appealing read for the Vampire Academy crowd.’ – Bookseller + Publisher
‘This is a vampire novel, and I think it’ll appeal to paranormal romance fans, but also to people who don’t like the whole vampire trend. It’s just different enough to make it refreshing but also appeal to the people who already love books like these.’ – Steph Bowe, Hey! Teenager of the Year
‘This one really does have it all…Meadows’ language is descriptive and evocative and her imagination seemingly limitless. Through her well-crafted narrative she creates a sense of menace and mystery that is threaded through even the more light-hearted scenes. Her characterisation, too, is excellent. Foz Meadows is a name to watch.’ – Jenny Mounfield, Buzz Words
‘This is an absolute ripper of a debut from a young Melbourne writer. It’s in the realm of young adult urban fantasy, recommended for 15 years plus, but deserves to win a much broader audience.’ – The Sun Herald
