'I loved Beetle Queen and I couldn't put it down, it kept me reading past my bedtime, but I didn't mind getting into trouble because it was so good.'
'Rich in quirky humour, warm characterization and chittering menace. it won't disappoint'
'[Beetle Queen] expands on Lucretia Cutter's evil machinations to take the story in totally wacky directions and to all sorts of new locations. The action denouement is particularly great! A brilliant, fun, read and a fabulously quirky sequel.'
'When I finished Beetle Queen & I just sat still for a few moments, full of joy. It is spectacular. A compulsive, moving, funny, vivid & utterly joyful read... It's a book to make you (re-)believe in the power of stories.'
