Review

Gleam is an astonishing novel . . . A book of the year for sure.

A wild ride through a world rooted in bizarre and unfathomable traditions . . . Gleam is simply beyond fascinating . . . I quickly fell in love with this book.--Bibliosanctum

Absolutely one of my favourite books of the year . . . a sprawling, wild and highly engaging tale of a completely different world - one inhabited by the weird and wonderful, where dark secrets lie hidden and an eclectic and highly intriguing group set out on a quest to discover them--Liz Loves Books on Gleam

Imaginative and exciting. There's subterfuge, violent action and personal tragedy, along with the mutated monsters, strange landscapes grotesque characters and twisted societies that populate Fletcher's bizarre world--Horror Hot House on Idle Hands

Gleam is a strong start to a very interesting world. Anyone looking for a science fiction tale of grim darkness should definitely pick this one up. 8/10--Starburst

Gleam's combination of dystopia, mythic quest, music and squishy monsters is hugely entertaining. Fletcher's distinctive prose - alternating barogue description and brutal action - is spiced with witty dialogue and eccentric characters. 4/5--SFX

Idle Hands keeps up the momentum built up in Gleam and goes on to deliver an exciting second instalment of Fletcher's dystopian vision . . . An imaginative and exciting sequel--The Horror Hothouse

Gleam is a very accomplished novel. The tapestry of the Alan's world is extremely rich and is filled with immaculately planned details. The story flows nicely and the last hundred pages or so only made me want to read more. In short, it'll be a long wait for the sequel!--Upcoming4me

It is such an interesting, weird, intriguing read I was literally glued to the pages. I hadn't finished a book this quickly in a while, which means a lot. The story, though absolutely bonkers at times, flows so well and reads so quickly--Midnight Blue Book Reviews

One of the most promising young horror authors of the past decade turned his stark talents to fantasy, conjuring up 'a devastated landscape equal parts Ambergris and Fallout 3' to typically excellent effect--Tor.com

There's true passion in every written word . . . With such deep characters and a storyline that promises more in its sequels, Gleam is definitely not one to discard. 4/5--SciFiNow
