‘In Newland's signature style, she turns internal struggles into fantastic battles of magic. Feelings have a color and a brightness, and evil has many faces and personalities. Even romance holds extra danger when a girl can zap the one she loves with the power of feelings. . . . Her scenes take me out of my living room and into Diamond Peak. I know when I pick up one of Tahlia's book I'm in for a great read!’ Kate Policani, author.
‘A well written, engaging and gripping story . . . The prose is of a fine standard, sometimes delivering small gems like ‘...completed the magic with a dab, like a full stop at the end of a sentence written in water.’ The author’s touch is light, respectful of its readers’ sensibilities and engaging - what more could one wish for?’ Clive S Johnson, author.
