Reviews

"The Seed Thief is one of those rare books which deliver on all fronts and leave you completely satisfied ... The characters are subtly drawn; their relationships authentic and fascinating. The tension of the plot is perfectly taut throughout. Stylistically, the novel is flawless."--LitNet
"The Seed Thief is a richly sensuous experience and L'Ange an alchemist who has mixed an exotic and mesmerising potion."--Pretoria News
"[T]his story sings across its pages. It traces a tale of redemption and seeking love and truth with the beauty of a symphony. I have seldom read a book as beautifully imagined, executed and felt."--Cape Times
"The Seed Thief is a rich tale that is part quest narrative, part story of self-discovery and awakening ... It's a novel that feels like a dream you can remember for only an instant upon waking, and then floats away into the ephemeral, leaving behind only a warm glow and a desire for more."--Essentials
"While a passionate love story and a botanical mystery form the framework of the plot, L'Ange explores a myriad other fascinating themes and threads in this wide-ranging, lush and layered work... The Seed Thief is a richly sensuous experience and L'Ange an alchemist who has mixed an exotic and mesmerising potion."--Avis Perks "IOL "
"Who knew a tiny star-shaped seed from near-extinct tree could spark so enchanting, suspenseful, and intensely spiritual a tale as Jacqui L'Ange's debut novel, The Seed Thief? ...I lost myself in a story that is lovingly crafted with words that capture the minutiae of the tiniest elements of biology and the larger-than-life culture of South America's biggest nation. The Seed Thief is a story of worlds beneath worlds within worlds, of surrendering to the splendour of chaos and the beauty of the mysterious."--Andrea van Wyk "And the Plot Thickens "
"L'ange's lissom prose carries a sense of place, and purpose. Passion and betrayal ooze from Salvador's streets."--Business Day
"It traces a tale of redemption and seeking love and truth with the beauty of a symphony."--Cape Times
"A beautifully crafted and poetically detailed story on bio-piracy set in South Africa and Brazil."--The Star
