'I started to read Game of Thrones and so far not finding it as engaging as your books. Looking forward to reading more of yours.'
'It does not disappoint. I'm no history expert but the whole novel felt very accurate and realistic, I couldn't out it down, such a fast, gripping read.'
'Just about to read another instalment of this wonderful historical series. If you love Game of Thrones, historical fiction, ancient words, rich characters, you will love the beautifully researched and written Britannica! Treat Yourself!'
'Loyalty is the first historical fiction I read that has so diligently incorporated historical facts, and I am truly impressed at Deeley’s efforts. High praise must be given to the amount of research given to this book.'
'Deeley's writing is intelligent and beautiful. I was immediately invested in the characters and the setting of ancient Britain. I have always loved this period of history, and her depiction of it is impeccably researched. This series provides a wonderful place to escape to, and I don't think anyone would be able to resist staying up all night to do so.'
'Meticulously researched, eloquently written, a time in history is brought to life for the reader, thoroughly described down to the last detail.'
'This author is a terrific writer and I have enjoyed her work. I'm looking forward to getting into the series in paperback and getting some extra copies for a couple of young adults in the family interested in early history. Well done, a great achievement. Congratulations.'
