This is a stand alone book and was the first one of her books I read. I bought it in a second hand book store and fell in love with it. It was becasue of this book that I sought out others she had written and the best thing is that she is an Australian author.

Kyle is a orphan whose mother died in childbirth. His childhood consists of a series of abusive foster families, so he has grown up not trusting anyone and only relying on his best friend Matt and himself. After being fired from work Kyle comes home to discover a mysterious brown package lying on his doorstep. What the package contains will challenge Kyle's perceptions of the world and himself.

Somewhat clunky dialogue and an unbelievable plot (but hey this is fantasy). Traci Harding redeems hers
Georgia Beyers
Totally wacky but a good plot with nice warm characters and a lot of aboriginal folklore thrown in for good measure. Quite enjoyed it but I think Traci Harding may have been dabbling with a bit of madness at the time of writing this! Haha
Ariel Brown
Set in the Australian indigenous spirituality context, this book demonstrates Traci Harding's own highly spiritual advancement as she writes without cultural or social biases. She is unique among authors for those seeking their own spiritual path. Any book written by Traci Harding has a message to the reader, and is based on spiritual truths.

Man o man did I love this book. You'll feel empowered to love your sun burnt country by the end of this one - or you'll fall in love with Australia if you're not from round'ere ;)

This is another fast paced book, full of magic, mystery and baddies that are so easy to hate cos they're horrible. LOVE IT.

I really did not like this book. I finished it only because I started it and I wanted to see if it improved. I notice that Traci Harding has written many novels and is rated highly. I am keen to read another of her books to see if this one was just a story that gel with me.
