It’s a bit cliched and I don’t often say it, so here goes. The Legend of Podkin One-Ear is an instant classic and will be read for decades as a favourite of adults and children who will go on to introduce it to their children.

From the moment I started reading this I was in love, so much so it was finished in one sitting; exciting, frightening, magical and intriguing, though this book has been compared to many books I think that’s a bit unkind to do as it stands proudly as Kieran’s creation and I’m sure in the future books will be compared to this.

In a land of good and evil, humanoid rabbits are the dominant species, the story obscures whether or not this is our future, an alternative future or a distant planet. Goddesses and magic are woven throughout the story of Podkin’s early adventures.

This is another series I will have to read as soon as the new books are released, Kieran has created a wonderful land and characters that live vividly in your imagination.
