Product description

Review

A demonic, darkly comic tale . . . satisfyingly peppered with science, history and amusing footnotes on everything from St Thomas Aquinas to quantum theory, and will go down well with readers of Eoin Colfer and Lemony Snicket., Daily Telegraph

Brilliant. I loved every word of it. John has found a voice that compares favourably with Stephen King and Monty Python which is not an easy trick., Eoin Colfer

Destined to be another runaway success appealing to both young adults and their parent alike., Sunday Independent

Review

Brilliant. I loved every word of it. John has found a voice that compares favourably with Stephen King and Monty Python which is not an easy trick. The Gates is delightfully horrific and hilarious and will create legions of fans among the living and undead, who will be bloodthirsty for more. - Eoin Colfer

Destined to be another runaway success appealing to both young adults and their parent alike. - Sunday Independent

Incredibly enjoyable. - FHM
