Reviews

“For readers who like to live beyond familiar boundaries”
Sunday Age July 2001

“exciting, informative and, more importantly, vividly entertaining reading. Author Carole Wilkinson carries us effortlessly into another place and another time. With an entertaining yarn, what more can you ask for?”
Magpies July 2001

“Through the eyes of the central character, we get a thoroughly authentic feeling about what life was like for folk in those far-gone days. Author Carole Wilkinson, who writes these exciting stories with a verve and a keen eye for authenticity, has based her fictional leading character, Ramose, on a real person”
The Literature Base August 2001

“A fascinating, brooding, deliciously chilling setting for a most innovative, refreshingly original novel, which tingles with spookiness and the ever present whiff of death.”
Sunday Tasmanian July 2001

“Carole Wilkinson has created two very detailed and fascinating worlds for her readers…An exciting new venture in Australian children’s novels for readers who like to go beyond the predictable.”
Bendigo Advertiser August 2001

“Although plot is foremost these books are no formula novels…the historical structure adds life and colour while unexpected turns of events are carefully structured.”
Reading Time November 2001

“The episodes in the tombs are particularly vivid and claustrophobic, and many details about life in Egypt are seamlessly woven into this interesting and exciting adventure.”
Children’s Book Council of Australia, Notable Books 2002
