Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Noble creates a fantasy world worthy of a Grimm fairy tale, and narrator Gerard Doyle delivers it with energy and style…Portraying the ruthless villain blinded by greed, Gerard oozes evil into every syllable he speaks, yet he controls his performance so that the villain goes beyond a stereotype. Using distinct Irish accents, Gerard fills this young adult fantasy with memorable character voices and infuses Tommin’s spirit, in particular, with the power of a fallen hero. A must-listen for teen fantasy lovers. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“The story is, simply, beautiful.” Fictionist magazine
“Weds the atmosphere of folklore with timeless questions of humanity with which teens wrestle: love, responsibility, identity. Part of the charm of this story is the juxtaposition of past and present, beginning with Tommin’s emergence in the twenty-first century at a Halloween party. Noble takes a well-worn trope, stretches it two hundred years, populates it with interesting characters, and breathes enough new life into it to appeal to teen fans of fantasy." VOYA
“Uses traditional leprechaun fables to flesh out the fantasy world.…Noble effectively brings the Irish brogue to the page.” School Library Journal
