Praise/Reviews for Hippocampus

"Spectacular, adventurous and magical is what sums up this awesome book...this book reminded me of a combination of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and Eragon and that is saying a lot. Tom Tancin is really an awesome writer who came up with such a great idea for a book. His writing style really fits into this young adult genre and the world that he has created is just fantastic. It is like he has taken many different elements and weaved them together to create an amazing fast paced book. "  5 out of 5 stars  
-The Bookshelf Review

"This book is a full on adventure. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish.  I could not put it down. I am a woman reaching the age of mmmm 40 and I enjoyed it.  I love a good romance and this was a break from the norm for me but I would gladly take another break." 4.5 out of 5 stars    -Confessions of a Bookaholic Facebook

 "Tom Tancin takes the myth of Atlantis and gives it a modern twist, creating a fresh and exciting adventure story. Action, mystery, magic, adventure and suspense fill the pages of Hippocampus." 4 out of 5 stars    -Treasured Tales for Young Adults

"All I know is how much I cannot wait to read the next book.  ..This story is definitely addicting. I will be eagerly awaiting the sequel."  -All Things Me

"This really seems like book that a teenage boy would love, full of action, adventure and a damsel in distress. Kudos to Tom Tancin for writing a book that hits on a reading population that may be getting overlooked in the current YA trends. Love triangles are cool and all, but maybe not so much from a young teen boys perspective."    -Monique Morgan, author of Pursuer

"It reminds me of the old Indiana Jones movies mixed with Harry Potter and geared towards teens."    -Mel's Book Blog

"Watch out Harry Potter, here comes Trey Atlas. An imaginative beginning of what could become the next YA epic series."

"This is fantastic. It's faintly reminiscent of Percy Jackson, but somehow punchier and more immediate. I definitely think this has got what it takes to take the market by storm. Fabulous work."

"Great premise for a broad legendary canvas- there's nothing like a lost civilisation to fire the imagination.. The writing is solid, flowing and sharp. the characters are crafted well and people you want to journey with."
-Owen Quinn on

"What great characters, written into a highly imaginative storyline. Very much like the contrast you build between Trey's world and the beginning it makes the crossing over very powerful. Great story well told."
-Famlavan on

"This is a fantastic reworking of ancient themes and modern interests."
-Jane Bain on

"I love the world you've created. Your writing is descriptive, clear, and to the point. Excellent imagination. Being a writer of fantasy/sci fi myself, I try to read and support as many well written ones on this site that I can. I hope this work does well and people give it a chance."
-Natalie Jones on

"It's easy to understand why this is getting strong support from young readers. The swashbuckling Knights take on a sorceress and her love, battling to his death and her escape. Such bitter tragedy leaves so many possibilities for fair Aerian. And then, the plan is added. Brilliant."
-Star Gazer on

"What an original, well-crafted story! You must read a great deal of myth and old-world stories, as much as new-age ones, to combine the two themes to make your great tale. You write everything well, from dialogue to the paragraphs surrounding it / drawing it all together."
-Kevin Wong on

"Your premise is so incredibly unique and your writing is generally strong as well. this is a really clever and original book. you have plenty of great things going for you here. I like your characters, especially Aerian (beautiful name btw) This was a great read."
