The Book Depository

Here's what some independent reviewers say...

'Excellent author - reminds me of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett
Absolutely wonderful book! The characters are flawed but lovable. Comedic timing is superb while keeping a terrific plot pace. Will purchase the entire series. ' - Reading Family on Amazon, 18 May 2020

'Genuinely brilliant.
I have read a lot. I loved Douglas Adams' hitchhikers guide trilogy and nothing since has come anywhere near close until now. I am taken by surprise and was awaiting disappointment and didn't even expect to finish the book but this is a brilliant adventure with characters that I loved and believed. Thank you.' -

Lighthearted, hilarious and impossible to put down.
'Filled with great characters and a plot that cant be beaten. The Pan of Hamgee is a lovable coward and a realist in a unreal world, which pits him against everyone he comes across, no matter how much he tries to avoid them.
Its a great introduction to what Im sure is a great series. I wouldnt be surprised if there wasnt a movie deal in the works.' - Jeremy on Amazon, 17 April 2018

Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and now M. T. McGuire.
'The UK has another excellent SF/Fantasy Comedy Author, if you enjoyed the work of Adams and Pratchett - then get this book, you will love it.' - Greame Rodaughan on Amazon, 29 June 2016
