Reviews of The Orphan and the Shadow Walker: The Awakening by Graeme Bourke

AGJ74 reviewed on Dec. 23, 2014

A real ‘page-turner’ and very descriptive – I could imagine the setting and the characters very easily, which added to my satisfaction. I’ve read the author’s Hawkins Grove and both books are admirably paced, accelerating in excitement towards the end. I expect the second in the Huntsman series to be another great read.

My only complaint is book 2 isn't available. I looked for it as soon as I finished book 1. :(

Excellent well written story. It is one of those books that you hate to put down. I am inpatient for the follow up books to be published. I highly recommend it.
