"A serious creative talent and all-round nice guy."
"Buckle up and enjoy the ride!"
"Hanks forces us to suspend reality, embrace the chaotic ride and revel in the fun-factor."
"Rolls along at break-neck pace...like a novelisation of a hit movie you never saw."
"Dan's page-turning second novel proves it's not always possible - or wise - to put aside childish things. A great read!"
"Swashbucklers is literally a nostalgia-inducing, pop culture acid-trip where the hometown kids reunite as middle-aged Goonies"
"it's an awesome formula for fun."
"Swashbucklers brings all the magic of the 80's back to life, and delivers a fun, action-packed tale with heart."
"Combines sci-fi and fantasy elements into an energetic cross-genre romp"
"Swashbucklers is the sequel to all your favorite childhood adventures."
"Hanks has done a lovely job at giving us a villian to hate and a lovable group of aging heroes to cheer on."
"Hilarious and poignant, loved it!"
"Stranger Things meets It meets The Goonies"
"A heartfelt, wacky tale beginning a potential series for fans of Stephen King's IT (1986) and anyone who's wondered why there are so many unsupervised children in fantasy."
"A fun romp, ideal for fans of the cultural references and humor of Ghostbusters and Ernest Cline's Ready Player One."
