"I am so excited to discover an adventure book with a boy for the protagonist/narrator. Peregrine is such a great character and one I think middle grade students (especially boys) will fall in love with. The story is highly imaginative and original, and I love how the plot was fast paced." ‒ The Hopeful Heroine Blog
"Part Sherlock Holmes. Part Indiana Jones. Peregrine Harker and the Black Death was a quick, enjoyable read. I could easily see my former students or future patrons flying through this book ... A great middle-grade mystery novel that will keep readers hooked from the first page. Well done!" ‒ Jenni French, Librarian, USA
"Thank you Luke Hollands for a great book. The pace of this book was quick and for mystery lovers, fairly easy to see who was behind all that happened to Peregrine. Luke threw in two great twists in the end that were great. I believe for my young boys who are reluctant readers, they will enjoy the story and pace of it. I will be purchasing this for my middle school library" - Jennifer Cubbage, Educator, USA
"This is an ideal book for readers aged 'tweens' and up; it is filled with mystery, action, adventure, thrills, spills and dire peril - and not too long either.
Written in the style of a 'penny dreadful' and incorporating a satisfying amount of historical detail about the early twentieth century Europe in the process, we meet the brave young detective Peregrine Harker who investigates some mysterious deaths and quickly finds that learning too much about The Brotherhood of the Black Death carries risks and his own life is now in mortal peril.
This book races along at breakneck speed, carrying the reader gasping and breathless to the highly satisfying conclusion. A fun children's book, sure to be popular with the majority of youngsters." ‒ Sian Williams, UK
"...It is definitely a book for young boys, preferably reluctant readers who like a lot of adventure with chases and a minimal amounts of girls/mushy stuff.
Peregrine Harker is a rich kid orphan turned journalist in Edwardian England, circa 1908. His newspaper boss has sent him to investigate tea as the price has jumped significantly of late and soon it will be so high that your average British citizen will not be able to have a cuppa every day like normal. Instead of finding out about tea, Peregrine gets sucked into a secret smuggling ring, strange deaths, harrowing car chases and double-crossing lords. There's even a damsel in distress or so he thinks. Will Peregrine ever get his story? Will he figure out who is in charge of the smuggling ring? And just who is the Black Death and what is their connection to all of this? To find out, read this exciting book! Recommended for ages 10-15." ‒ Rachel Huddlestone, Librarian, USA
"I completely enjoyed Peregrine Harker. This novel is a welcome addition to current offerings in children's literature, particularly those aimed at boys." - Drennan Spitzer, Educator, USA
