Well, it's been over a week now since the book came out and there's been lots of good reviews coming in. Here's a few of the best:
"Classic good versus evil tale with a colourful cast of flying thieves and unlikely heroes. Original, exciting and full of interesting characters and vivid action scenes, Dan Walker has created an excellent air-borne adventure story in Sky Thieves."
- Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids
"The main protagonist was an instant hit...The story had us both gripped throughout and it had us literally at the edge of the chair cheering them all on."
"Sky-high adventures on an air-ship crewed by Robin Hood style pirates and a life or death battle against an evil nemesis make Dan Walker’s new book a thrilling read from beginning to end."
Matthew Martin, Books for Keeps
"...the story becomes a whirlwind of a tale of fights, raids, islands in the sky, treasure, evil pirates (yes, it seems there are some good pirates out there as well as those good old-fashioned bad characters), friendship, bravery and family…Its superb…Enjoy it!"
Sue Chambers, Sue and Pakka's Reviews
"...a fantastic and original mix of swashbuckling and steampunk."
That's a great start for Sky Thieves, and hopefully there'll be more to come over the next few weeks.
