Praise for The Crystal Caverns (The Last Firehawk #2): "The myriad black-and-white images and easy-to-read text make this an apt read for those making the transition from early readers to longer books. The book includes reading comprehension questions and activities to help readers immerse themselves in Tag's world. A nifty addition to the series." — Kirkus Reviews
Praise for The Ember Stone (The Last Firehawk #1): "The first book in this new series brings the animal fantasy genre to early chapter book readers... The adventure is nonstop, making this an ideal choice for reluctant readers. VERDICT: A strong beginning to an adventure series for chapter book readers, especially those who are not quite ready for Erin Hunter's 'Warriors' or Kathryn Lasky's 'Guardians of Ga'Hoole.'" — School Library Journal
"A promising start to a series for fledgling fantasy readers." — Kirkus Reviews
