Press reviews

“this stunning book reminds us of the soaring joy of adventure, the captivating danger of magic, and of the delight of finding friends in unexpected places.”
Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books

“an immersive magical world that will thrill its audience with its action-filled fantasy plot, its dark magic and its homage to the power of music.”
Books for Topics – Ones to Watch, Autumn 2018

“A Darkness of Dragons is sheer brilliance in children’s fiction. I have not been this excited about a children’s series of books since a pubescent wizard called Harry Potter first leapt onto the scene. S.A. Patrick’s storytelling knows no bounds and is masterfully executed and Patrick builds a quite brilliant original tale whilst also creating an unforgettable magical world for his readers to escape into.”
Storgy Kids

“A Darkness of Dragons creates an exciting imaginary world that will leave children eager to get their hands on forthcoming sequels.”
Mark, The Alligator’s Mouth

“this could turn out to be a fantastically popular new series. […] S.A. Patrick has adapted the traditional fairy tale to create a fearsome character and then filled the plot with action, suspense and magic from start to finish.”
TES

“An unmissable fantasy from a talented voice. I loved the characters, the plot and the setting. I’m certain Patch and his friends will remain with me even now I’ve closed the book.”
Book Murmuration, blogger

“A Darkness of Dragons is an inspired take on an old story, with engaging characters, a really good story and several unexpected twists.”
Linda Wilson, Crime Review

    This book had me gripped from start to finish. The story has a magical and exciting vibe with the author hooking you in so that you can’t wait for what’s coming next. Following the main character Patch, a disgraced Piper and his friend Wren, a rat, who together seek to find the truth about the Piper of Hamelyn. Will definitely look out for more offerings from S. A Patrick.

    This book was inspired by The Pied Piper of Hamelin, and provides an excellent twist to this tale. I love the adventurous nature of this book and the language used to create the scenes is just brilliant. There is done interesting language within the book which provides opportunities for great discussions, as well as enhancing vocabularies. Such an imaginative story which you really can get lost within. I didn’t want to put it down, such a gripping book. I don’t want to give away too much about the plot and spoil it but I definitely recommend giving it a go!
