Reviews

Praise for The Demon Collector: Mortlock was a striking debut ... it created a creepy atmosphere that won much praise. The Demon Collector is equally full of well-written suspense but far funnier, with a strong filmic element that fans of Joseph Delaney's Spooks Apprentice and Anthony McGowan's Hellbent will lap up Amanda Craig, The Times Praise for Mortlock: An accomplished page-turner ... lighthanded, scary fun, with some sibling bickering thrown in SFX Mayhew has woven a rich tapestry depicting a series of convincing worlds ... It has a breathtaking pace [and there] are characters we hope to meet again Children's Book of the Month, The Observer

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
