However, if you don’t mind being completely grossed out one minute and laughing your head off the next, please read on ...
“I would read ANYTHING this man wrote.” That’s what Mr La Rue said. Plus he didn’t just read The Orphanage, he started at book 1, Four Small Stones, had a little nap and then read all the way through to book 8, Final Straw! Pretty impressive.
“Way beyond wonderful. A spine-tingling experience of anticipation. Fear and terror a plenty. I think it is the best so far.” Anne, Editor Australia
“Just finished reading the book. It was AWESOME!” JB Cacdac, Singapore Review of Books
Billy and Amber go up against the dreaded dog catcher with a hot pursuit leading them into a creepy, rundown old orphanage where they find themselves under attack by a savage pack. Lives will be lost in this heart pounding edge of your seat episode.
“Plenty of laughs, as usual, love it. Great dialogue. The Bullie’s antics are hilarious.”Jack S, Australia
“Great ending.”Hermione, Editor Australia
“Taaffe's series is a wonderful action series for boys and girls who don't mind a little grit in their stories.” Tammy and Alex Dewhurst, Canada
“These characters are so likeable and the message is so humane and positive. I am so tired of literature full of anger, angst and cruelty. I find this entire series uplifting. You won't find vampires, werewolves, magic etc. Just plain old folk relating to each other and their environment and doing the best they can with what they have. What can I say? I love this series and look forward to it's continuation. By the way, be sure you visit the glossary at the end of each book. The glossary is an entertainment in and of itself. Read these books. Enjoy!!” New York Book Review- WD La Rue
“While written for a younger age bracket, adult humour has been included. However it has been written in such a way that what seems like a funny incident to a younger audience, holds an underlying meaning for the adults. I highly recommend this series to everybody who is interested in reading a beautifully written story.” Pinky Pollock, Australian Book Review
URBAN HUNTERS is laugh-out-loud, gut-churning, heart-wrenching storytelling at its best. Unlike anything you’ve ever read, in typical Taaffe fashion. Hilarious as usual. Always surprising. Wonderful!
