'The language and structure of the story are perfectly pitched to engage young readers whilst avoiding condescension. Indeed, there is plenty to entertain readers of all ages. The adventures related are enhanced by the wonderful illustrations. Along with the previous books in the series, this is a story of bravery and friendship that I highly recommend.'
Jackie Law, Never Imitate
'Moore's story 'Broad Moor' manages to remain controlled and believable, yet punctuated by all the tropes of a horror film... Rich with symbolism and expert ambiguity, 'Broad Moor' provides an intriguing taster of this writer's boundlessly original imagination.'
Sam Pryce, Sabotage Reviews
'showcases the evolution of a writer who refuses to dilute her stories with artificial light or sentimentality to make them more palatable. There’s really no need, when she knows how to make bleakness so thrillingly readable.'
Isabel Costello, The Literary Sofa
'Moore writes a pitch perfect tale of gathering unease, the situation moving from strange to distinctly disturbing... This quiet tale of creeping unease and reality shift is a superb example of what the short form is capable of.'
Peter Tennant, Black Static #32
'A terrifically disorienting piece that hits a lot of the same buttons that Shirley Jackson used to... Her economical use of imagery cracks reality in just the right way, with jeweller’s precision... It’s one of the best short stories I’ve read this year.'
Michael Marano, Dead Reckonings
