'Motion paints an alluring portrait of a land that is in turns bountiful and beautiful, barren and savage.' -- Lucy Scholes Independent

'Motion's narrative is both more lyrical and more gruesome than Robert Louis Stevenson's.' Mail on Sunday

'Motion has fashioned an exciting narrative that fans of the original will welcome.' Good Book Guide
