  • “An extraordinary and inherently riveting read from beginning to end, The Sicilian Woman’s Daughter is an original and cleverly novel showcasing the real ability for narrative storytelling by author Linda Lo Scuro (a pen name)…highly recommended for community library Contemporary General Fiction collections” ‒ Midwest

  • “I enjoyed reading Petronella & The Trogot; it was a chilling tale but I wasn’t fully hooked
    until the second half… I would liken the second part, Petronella’s journey into hell
    and investigation of an evil, monstrous tree in her backyard
    to a miniature version of Dante’s Inferno. Because
    Dante’s The Divine Comedy especially The Inferno is one of my favorite pieces of
    literature I was hooked instantly. It was almost in the same
    structure as the inferno as well with various ‘sinners’ having
    punishments that put a cruel twist on their crime. I also really liked Bentley’s creative use of language, some
    of the characters, ex. Strincas, had a cool old-Englishy way of talking.

    “So overall this is a good read that I recommend especially
    for those who have a fond spot for The Inferno. It
    has spooky creatures, adventure, and some romance.”
    Reviewer, USA

  • “Part Sherlock Holmes. Part Indiana Jones. ‘Peregrine Harker and

    A great middle-grade mystery story that will keep readers hooked
    from the first page. Well done!” ‒ Librarian, USA

    “Thank you Luke Hollands for a great story. The
    pace was quick and for mystery lovers, fairly easy to see who was behind
    all that happened to Peregrine. Luke threw in two great twists in the
    ending. I believe for my young boys who are reluctant readers, they will enjoy the
    story and pace of it. I will be purchasing this for my middle school library” – Teacher, USA
