What readers are saying about her work
‘What happens when you mix teenaged kids, a bizarre ancient world, and superpowers? You get the pulse-thumping, laugh along, gripping tale of Realm Travelers. Brilliant and often surprising, this stunning debut novel delves deep into relationships, past trauma, and the need to find oneself while in a world of wonder and control.’ – Brent Meske, author of Super Nobody and The Alpha and Omegas Series
‘Mary Raco made me care about her five teen protagonists, then flung them headlong into extravagantly imaginative peril. The tension never lets up, and the ending left me wanting more.’ – Shane Porteous, script writer/actor.
‘This enjoyable, fast-paced book left this adult eagerly awaiting the next instalment of The Realm Travellers. Highly recommended.’ – Lyn Behan, author of The Men and The Medium and Seeking Samuel Goldberg.
