This is a copy of the first reader review left on Lulu.com. This reader obviously likes it:-
This is a captivating story and very different to other children's books currently on offer. With dragons, wizards, and elves flooding the children's market each month, this is sure to stand out from the crowd. An impressive imagination, in a book filled with great sci-fi ideas, gadgets, and aliens, truly bringing Mervyn's world to life. Characters have as much focus as plot, and the story is all the better for it. Mervyn is a great hero with a great heart, supported by an unlikely but loveable group of friends. I found this fast-paced with a good flow of events. Tension builds well throughout the story towards a tense and powerful climax. An ambitious book that both children and adults can enjoy.
