Lancashire Libraries (review)

April 1, 2011

GRAVENHUNGER is an extraordinary novel. It has an unrelenting fast pace that is maintained throughout, yet skilfully balances that alongside real insight into loss, bereavement and repressed feelings and emotions.
Somewhere between M R James and Stephen King, the book bristles with chilling uncertainty and is sure to keep readers gripped and guessing until the very end. Gravenhunger Manor and its environs are a wonderfully brooding and malevolent setting that is hard to find parallel for in children’s literature. A deliciously dark, yet thought-provoking read. – Jake Hope
