With the appearance of Cliff McNish's debut fantasy novel The Doomspell, The Bookseller immediately hailed him as 'a great new voice in writing for children.' His ghost story Breathe was voted in May 2013 by The Schools Network of British Librarians as one of the top adult and children's novels of all time.
'Cliff McNish writes with energy and sparkling imagination in this most compelling conclusion to an extraordinary trilogy.' Nought to Twelve 'The writing is atmospheric and the plot gripping, as the children battle against awesome forces.' Good Book Guide 'A fast-paced, gripping read.' Times Educational Supplement 'After the first two novels in the series, we have a finale that grips like a vice, and is full of the pace and all the imaginative and descriptive flair we have come to expect from this remarkable author.' Amazon 'The characters are believable; it is beautifully written, with page after page of powerful imagery; it is utterly compulsive and inventive reading for young teens.' Birmingham Post
