'There are a lot of things to like about The Spirit of London. It focuses on an under-explored aspect of London - slavery and black history, adding to the reader's knowledge and understanding. It has some genuinely creepy moments but it also has some great moments of slapstick to ease the tension. It’s an absorbing read but not an overly long one. And there really isn't anything to dislike. Recommended.'
Jill Murphy, The Bookbag


'It's a terrific read, no matter how old you are! Chilling atmosphere, great sense of history, superb story all round.'
Books Monthly


"Pulling issues of family separation, slavery and racism into the mix, this tale is an engaging ghost story for readers of nine and above, with a satisfying plot and clear written style...the scene where Edward apparently returns to life, and samples the delights of 21st century culture, is very entertaining."

'A brilliant, exciting story filled with mystery, adventure and ghosts! It’s action packed and well paced to engage younger readers. This is definitely my favourite book in the ‘Spirits’ series so far. Well recommended for older primary children and up, even some adults like myself. This series is well worth reading!'
