© “I love good historical fiction and this book definitely ticked all of the boxes for me.  Great insight and clever research pulls you into this story and it is great when you can be completely entertained and educated all at once.” – Suzy

© “I learnt a lot about an important part of NZ’s history by reading Rangatira. Not only that, I was entertained and moved by the mellifluous nature of the narrative. Beautiful cover to boot. Recommended reading.” – Rachel
