"Amazing read! And this is from the mind of a 12 year old. McKnight is head and shoulders above her peers and I look forward to the next installment of the story and the spin offs that will materialize as the saga continues."  (Mr. Lonnie Stephens)

"Kaitlyn McKnight – an obviously very self-possessed young woman – has gone two steps farther than most: she shared her story with others (a huge hurdle for most budding authors) and has seen her first effort go to print. Kaitlyn is doing it. She “finished what she started” and that is no mean feat." (Steve Davidson for Amazing Stories)
