Press reviews for The Winter Passing
Storge – 4/5 – read the full review here.
“While tales of inherited magical powers from an ancient bloodline in a 21st Century setting might have echoes of Harry Potter about it, I can safely say that’s where the similarities end. While Centaury’s fictional universe is painted as richly as Potter’s (the depth and detail to the mythology is astonishing) The Winter Passing has a dark almost gothic novel quality to it and is genuinely scary in places.
The lines between good and evil are not so clear cut and at times we are made to wonder who the bad guys really are and whether Taury herself might be the antagonist rather than the protagonist. I’m reminded of Robert C’ Obrien‘s The Silver Crown and Peter Dickinson‘s The Changes series – both aimed at young adult audiences (because grown ups didn’t read that kind of stuff back then), but both pulled no punches when it comes to scaring or spooking the reader.”
