Reviews

With an artist's eye and a storyteller's soaring imagination, Aaron Paquette has written a page-turner. I found myself rooting hard for Aisling, Eric and their beloved Kokum. This book is a hugely engaging cautionary tale: the stakes are high if we keep giving in to our appetites. But there is great light in Lightfinder. Congratulations, Aaron, on this strong debut.-Shelagh Rogers O.C.,Host, co-creator "The Next Chapter" CBC Radio OneAs a fan of Aaron Paquette's dazzling artwork, I am in awe of the vision and craft behind The Lightfinder Saga. If you loved Stephen King's The Stand and the worlds that Neil Gaiman can create, you will love these characters who are fighting for humanity's survival. Bravo! -Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed, Angel Wing Splash Pattern and Godless but Loyal to Heaven.
