“Vividly entertaining, this is a book that looks past the lively and thrilling glamour of life as an international spy and also merges several genres together into a cohesive whole to tell a story that rocks from start to finish.” ~The Founding Fields

Strange Chemistry Double – Emilie & The Hollow World and The Holders [Shadowhawk]

StrangeChemistryDouble01

Shadowhawk reviews two of Strange Chemistry’s latest young adult fantasy titles.

On Emilie & The Hollow World: “This is an action-adventure novel that is very reminiscent of Jules Verne’s classic, A Journey To The Center of The Earth. Hence, my conclusion is that the novel is a work of genius.

On The Holders: “An Irish fantasy that reads like an X-men novelisation. Which means of course that this was pretty damn good, no mistake.”

Upcoming: Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan (Orbit)
