What reviewers are saying ABOUT A. L. TAIT
“While I will admit that it took me a while to get used to the jumps between first- and third-person perspective as the story switched between Maven’s and Reeve’s point of view, once I did, this book didn’t leave my hands.
“I’m looking forward to selling The Fire Star—this middle-grade novel is great for existing fans of A L Tait, as well as lovers of historical fiction and adventure aged nine and up.” Dani Solomon, Books + Publishing
“A.L. Tait creates characters that are relevant to modern readers without compromising the authenticity of Quinn’s time and place. Quinn is also a hero children can relate to, struggling with fear and self-doubt and, at times, a longing for home. We feel Quinn’s joy when he greets a friend and his fear when faced with an old foe.”
