It’s a thrilling, gory, head-rushing adventure.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
More than just a whodunnit, Wild Boy & the Black Terror explores themes of friendship, loyalty, and alienation…. This book is a recommended purchase where the first book was popular.
The enticing pace, appealingly macabre locations, and steampunk-tinged Dickensian atmosphere is engrossing … Kids who liked Christopher Edge’s penny-dreadful-style Twelve Minutes to Midnight (2012) will likely love this, too.
This historical adventure is a fast-paced and exciting read.
