    A Brilliant Read !!

    Having read Swiftly at school my 14 year old daughter pestered me to buy the sequel Swiftly 2. She read it, and loved every second of it and persuaded me (as we were going on holiday) to read it too. Oh boy, am I glad I did. The story is a joy and the fast-moving style of writing makes it an un-put-a-downable read. I savoured each chapter not wishing to reach the end but the sheer energy and flair pushed me towards the final chapter. Michael Maguire is a gifted writer and if you're looking for a magical, traditional read rather than the "dumbing-down" tripe that's around then Swiftly 2 is a book you've been waiting for. Young people (plus adults!) will be captivated by this story. It's a must-read that will definitely NOT disappoint.
