Here's what they are saying!
An intriguing world where only the strongest survives. A forbidden romance – Bandits is a Fast-paced adventure that is filled with Great Details and non-stop action. * LovLivLife Reviews
Right from the start this book was filled with none stop action and was jam-packed with adventure. This book had me fighting sleep so I could stay up and finish it faster. * Bo0ki3
The dialogue between the guys feels realistic, which is rare for YA. There's tons of danger from vicious animals, carnivorous plants, crazy monsters and regular bad guys, plus the main villain is very disturbing. And as a reward at the end of all this hair-raising peril, the characters discover something truly cool and surprising. Bandits will work fine for female readers, especially since Jade is a great character and her interaction with Daniel is so fun, but it'll probably be even more appealing for guys, what with all the action-adventure and the strong male lead. * All Consuming Books
In a nutshell, this story is an action-packed adventure for any energetic teen who's ever been lost, misguided, or betrayed. With sprinkles of the Pirates of the Caribbean to Star Trek, the thrill-ride is endless. * Writer's Alley
The author's son wanted "a gritty pirate tale." Wow! I'd say he got that and more! After all, this pirate tale is not only gritty, it is out of this world--Merwin! * Book Reader's Heaven
If you are a fan of science fiction and adventure, you really must check this book out. It has a wonderful storyline that you will surely want to sink your teeth into. Grab a copy and pull up a seat. I don't think you will be disappointed. * Eva's Sanctuary
One of the main reasons I found why I could read Bandits is because of the images she weaves, the creatures and world she created, and how they all work together. I have a healthy respect for a writer who can create a whole new world with creatures you’ve never heard of and have it all fit in together. * Bookish Ardour
