A total treat * Melinda Salisbury on THE PEARL THIEF *
A romantic and acutely observed historical mystery * Metro on THE PEARL THIEF *
The Enigma Game is a gorgeous, complex, layered story set chronologically between The Pearl Thief and Code Name Verity, but equally enjoyable as a standalone novel, with beautiful musings on discrimination, prejudice, war, family, and the secrets we hide - and reveal - throughout our lives -- A. O'Connell, Reviewer * NetGalley *
Code Name Verity has built a reputation for being an outstanding example of historical fiction - and The Enigma Game looks likely to follow suit. Superb! -- O. Edmonds, Librarian * NetGalley *
This is a very fine historical novel, with characters as alive as any you could hope to meet in fiction * Books for Keeps *
The Enigma Game is meticulously researched and carefully crafted, combining the ingredients of friendship, intrigue and mystery that author Elizabeth Wein favours for her popular YA wartime adventures which began with the award-winning Code Name Verity in 2012 * Reading Zone *
