Review: "Fast-paced and fabulous, this debut novel immerses readers in a gritty Victorian London populated by pickpockets, princes, and some rather scary faeries." - Mary, The Book Swarm

Review: "With an in your face gleeful nod to Oliver Twist (Rieker is even reading the book) and the Prince and the Pauper, but starring a Cinderella heroine, readers will appreciate this engaging historical fantasy. Tiki is a super protagonist who cares deeply for her “children” while Rieker is an enigmatic thief who seems to always have her back. Although the ending feels more like a setup for future tales rather than a climax, young teenage readers will enjoy visiting Kiki Hamilton’s Dickensian fantasy realm."   - Harriet Klausner, Alternative Worlds
