The Guardian: Fresh voices: 50 writers you should read now
Stanly is frustrated. Having set himself up as London's protector, he's finding that the everyday practicalities of superheroism are challenging at best, and downright tedious at worst. So it's almost a relief when an attempt is made on his life and Stanly finds himself rushing headlong into a twisted adventure, with enemies new and old coming out of the woodwork. However, even with his friends and his ever-increasing power behind him, he may have bitten off more than he can chew this time. The monsters are coming ... and nothing will ever be the same!

Doing what so many sequels fail to do, Ace of Spiders soars, with a thrilling plot, brilliant character development, and fantastically funny cultural references.-- Luke Marlowe * The Bookbag *
Old enemies mix with new enemies mix with Stanly's own shortcomings and frustrations to create an explosive mix of plot twists and revelations that had me gasping in shock, or running to hide behind the sofa.-- Jen Gallagher * Medieval Jenga *

The long-awaited follow-up to Stefan Mohamed's brilliant Bitter Sixteen has arrived. And it's just as good as it's predecessor.* If These Books Could Talk *
Mohamed does everything right: the realistic tone, leavened by humour, is pitch perfect, as is the portrayal of Stanly as a precocious but vulnerable teenager. The plot careers from one dramatic set-piece to the next, with plenty of clever pop culture references along the way, before closing with a thrilling denouement. And Daryl the talking dog is an inspired creation.-- Eric Brown * The Guardian *
