‘What a fantastic ending to the Soulfinders series! I have loved each journey that I have been on in this world, and Dawn Study was a well crafted and epic conclusion, to this particular series, that will stay with me for a while to come. ’ — Naomi Hopkins (Netgalley)
‘It's a well crafted and epic conclusion to an incredible series that has kept me engaged throughout. It's easy to become completely immersed in her world full of spies and espionage, intrigue and mystery and this one had me sitting on the edge of my seat as all the threads of previous books came together.’ — Diana Hewlett (Netgalley)
'I very much enjoyed this book and know it will satisfy everyone who has followed Yelena and Valek to this point. Recommended for readers who love their fantasy, with strong world-building, and brave, resilient characters. The relationships are adult, but there is a positive range of ages, from young children through to grandparents who are all determined to do their bit. The banter is snarky, the characters depict diversity, and Snyder affirms that family are chosen as well as determined through blood.' — Trish Buckley (Netgalley)
