Praise For Witchlanders…
* "Takes on faith, doubt, and dualities, exposing their flaws and strengths alike. Plot twists unfold at a riveting pace, the boys' characters are compellingly sketched, and Coakley explores her subject matter masterfully without falling prey to safe plot choices."
-- Publisher's Weekly July 11, 2011 *STAR
* "The rich language will enthrall female and male readers alike.”
-- Kirkus, July 15, 2011 *STAR
* "Coakley’s world comes to life with exquisite detail and imagery; readers will feel the chill of the frost and smell the crackling bonfires. High fantasy lovers will gobble up Witchlanders."
--SLJ, December 2011, *STAR
"Fans of contemplative, psychologically rich (but no less action-packed) fantasies à la Ursula Le Guin will welcome this warm, inventive debut."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A welcome fantasy debut."
