"The strength of Wyatt's writing lies in her precise, clear dialogue, not surprising in this author of dozens of radio plays. The characters' voices are strong and compelling and together they create a convincing chorus for which Wyatt is the conductor with a sure hand on her baton..."
"Wally and Ariane show themselves to be both independent and resourceful in this third book. Younger readers will find much to admire about these characters. Their many adventures take them all over the world, from Canada to Hawaii and New Zealand, although they never stray far from their strong moral compass."
A new interview and review of Swedes' Ferry by Allan Safarik
"By continuing to develop his characters so that they never remain good or evil or secondary, Edward Willett has ensured that the plot doesn’t stagnate in a seemingly simple plot of finding the shards of Excalibur and having its power unleashed. With Ariane and Wally both being affected by the shards and learning of new abilities, as well as other characters being drawn into the story in different ways,The Lake in the Clouds becomes a fuller story."
"The Factory Voice (2009, Coteau Books) was on the longlist for the 2009 ScotiaBank Giller prize and it is easy to see why it was so popular"
"While Edward Willett continues to weave the Arthurian legend into a Saskatchewan setting, he builds on the Merlin, Arthur and Lady of the Lake story by creating a magical sword that craves to be reconstructed and wielded as a weapon...Willett capably brandishes the trust issues of teens, especially those related to their families, as the means to progress the story."
