‘I love how the author made Vincent, the main character, have so many close encounters with his enemies. It really adds on to the “What’s going to happen next?!” feeling throughout the book… this was an excellent book.’

‘Cardsharp is an exciting, thrilling and extremely imaginative book.
I loved it and read the more than once – I couldn’t put it down. The plot is exceptional and wonderfully well-written. I also loved how Vincent never seems to dodge trouble and always ends up face to face with it! Vincent is strong, tough and intelligent.’

This a an excellent read – it’s exciting and engrossing. Vincent Ward’s extraordinary adventure is cleverly intertwined with the story of Caravaggio. Amazingly the historical side to this story is actually true and I found myself reading up more about the artist afterwards! I highly recommend this book.

‘A great read for all ages. I wanted to know what happens next, it was fun, fast and furious, just as I had hoped.
I also soon realised that at the midst of the narrative’s speedy sequence of events, there is a slow unraveling and development of some truly relevant contemporary social and cultural issues such as value of art, modern family structures and our sense of justice and heroism. It made me think and smile. I think these levels allow the book to be understood in different ways depending on your mood, age and interest. Can’t wait to see what Vincent does next.’
