'There is some kind of magic in the way Jock Serong conjures worlds and times and people. The Burning Island is a ripping yarn of a book; sometimes while reading I'd be sunk so deep in its adventures, and in the precision of captured moments, that if interrupted I'd rise to the surface blinking, reluctant and surprised.' * Lucy Treloar *


'I was hooked from the beginning... An incredible historical novel, an incredible adventure.' * Final Draft podcast * 'Elegant... An immersive maritime book... It will not disappoint.' * RN Bookshelf * 'The moving story of a daughter's devotion to her father, with a cracking denouement reminiscent of an Hercule Poirot mystery...The Burning Island starts out as a crime thriller involving a search for a missing ship and a quest for revenge [and]...turns into something much more.' * Australian Book Review * 'Draws you along until an astounding climax.' * Don't Shoot the Messenger podcast * 'There is some kind of magic in the way Jock Serong conjures places and times and people. The Burning Island is a ripping yarn of a book; sometimes while reading I'd be sunk so deep in its adventures, and in the precision of captured moments, that if interrupted I'd rise to the surface blinking, reluctant and surprised.' * Lucy Treloar *
