"Golden's dramatic and funny coming of age story evolv(es) into a horrific and ultimately sorrowful thriller. A bizarre combination of The Wonder Years and The Lost Boys, this fantastic tale entertains."
-- Publishers Weekly
"Christopher Golden . . . is an imaginative and prodigious talent who never lets genre boundaries hold him back."
-- Douglas Clegg, author Naomi and Mischief
"The print equivalent of From Dusk 'Til Dawn. High praise, indeed. A bizarre trip across the dark fantastic that really, really works. The Stand By Me-cum-The Outsiders feel of the first half of the novel is real, and honest, and a great read in and of itself; add the twisted fantasy element, and this book becomes perfectly unique. A grown up, odd, compelling journey through adolescence, and heartache, and of course, Neverland. A fascinating and completely engrossing book."
-- The 11th Hour web magazine
"I defy anyone to read a few of these scenes and not be swept up. Golden's imagination was working overtime when he crafted a way to blend this coming-of-age story with not just a bona fide childhood classic, but Gaelic mythology as well, as the novel progresses from the mundane to the weird to full-blown high fantasy. Golden keeps those pages flying by, without forgetting to bring it full circle and give your heart a tweak or two in the very end."
-- Brian Hodge, author of Wild Horses
"A clever and touching dark fantasy novel (that is) magic to read. As dark, and as mature, as any good fairy tale is at heart. Golden's storytelling is restrained as he finesses us down the plot's road, and though there is a moral to the story, it's a moral that aches with the revelations of coming of age, and of leaving an age behind."
