Five out of five stars. It will come as no surprise to most of you that I was very excited to read Norma Hinkens’ book Girl of Fire. Not only is it science fiction, it is clean, action adventure science fiction! So many wins, so little time.” – Anemone Flynn, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
The author builds an intricate world that you could close your eyes and ‘see’ vividly. Add to that a well executed storyline with several convoluted twists and turns, and you are sure to find yourself engrossed long into the night. Overall, a spectacular start to what promises to be another amazing series by Norma Hinkens.” – Ms. Just One More Book, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
