 Amazon reviews

‘Fantastic piece of writing. As the end of the trilogy I loved the book. It is a stand-alone story, intertwined with V1 and V2. Hopefully there will be a V4!’

‘Another brilliant book to add to the Valberg collection.’

‘I couldn’t put the book down, just like the Valberg books. What makes the book even better is knowing where the places are in the book, makes the imagery so much stronger. Was sad to finish it.’
