Great Reviews of The Emerald Curse

“Calgary writer Simon Rose is back with The Emerald Curse, his strongest middle-grade novel yet … Fast-paced and well-plotted, elementary students are sure to love it.” 
The Calgary Herald

“This fourth book by Simon Rose is as good and fast paced a read as his first three. Page turning tension with a resourceful and intrepid hero … and sure to please any child who likes fantasy, science fiction and comics.” 

“Rose has very carefully crafted his book to imitate the surrealist feel of comic books … With fantastic creatures, a damsel in distress and solid action, this book will especially appeal to young males.” 
University of Manitoba CM Magazine

“This fantasy adventure with its use of comic-book themes and characters will entice a reader who enjoys larger-than-life villains and mighty clashes between good and evil. There is plenty of tension and suspense in the plot as well as creative descriptions of the incredible characters that inhabit the fantasy world. The illustrations are dark and complement the sinister atmosphere of a world where evil forces have taken charge. The Emerald Curse is a very well written and appealing adventure book. Highly recommended.”
