Editorial Reviews

'Nonstop action... Aussie-flavored excitement with ancient Greek tidbits.'-Kirkus'Bartlett has created an exciting alternative world of gods and demons, but it is Sadie with whom the reader engages and who makesFire in the Sea credible.'-Saturday Age'If there's one thing we like in a protagonist, it's someone who is ballsy enough to fight for what is right - and that's exactly why we love 16-year-old Sadie.'-Girlfriend'Fire in the Sea offers a whirlwind adventure with an Australian twist, with plenty of action and mystery thrown in to keep readers engaged... Fire in the Sea is an impressive debut.'-Speculating on SpecFic blog'Imagine John Marsden and Suzanne Collins co-wrote a Narnian story. That's the closest approximation I can make for the entirely unique story, tone, and feel ofFire in the Sea... It's been too long since I was excited about a debut book. It's been too long since there was a strong, new, male voice in the Australian YA scene. It's been too long since I felt confident in recommending a book to an older teen (particularly male) audience. Thank you, Myke Bartlett and Text Publishing.'-SLV Centre for Youth Literature blog'It's fast paced and exciting, violent at times but emotionally rich and interesting at others... A timely reminder that sometimes when stepping out of your comfort zone you get a rewarding surprise.'-Fairfieldbooks On Kids blog'I really shouldn't be so surprised that another Text Prize novel is incredible, but I am.Fire in the Sea is a fantastic new addition to the Aussie young adult paranormal scene - set in the beautiful (if lamentably dull) city of Perth, and featuring everything from sea sirens to crazy reincarnated boys. Myke Bartlett has written a parade of paranormal creatures and a thrilling sea-depths mystery ... I, for one, hope that this is just the first of many more novels from an interesting new Aussie YA voice. 5/5'-Alpha Reader blog'A thrilling adventure with a Katniss Everdeen-style heroine... this is one showdown you won't forget in a hurry!'-Dolly Magazine'Fire in the Sea is a fantastic, action-packed adventure, blending the Australian setting of Perth with ancient mythology - definitely a book to check out if you're a fan of Australian YA or paranormal stories.'-Vegan YA Nerds'Part romance, part fantasy and part adventure, the story races along.'-Magpies 'Nonstop action...
