Devils in Danger is another enjoyable and accessible read from Samantha Wheeler, who is firmly establishing herself as a go-to author for younger readers. The combination of loveable characters, exciting storyline and interesting factual information makes this a perfect book for primary school readers in years three to six. Killarney is a loveable protagonist whose struggles with school and difficulties with her friends will be familiar to many readers. There is a strong sense of community, with a cast of interesting characters, that gives the novel a lovely sense of place. Devils in Danger is a fail-safe choice for kids who are after something different from the large range of fantasy novels currently available for this age group.
