Kirkus Reviews (excerpt) full review
- "...intriguing contraptions, appealing characters, snide villains, humor, and an exciting story",
- "...LeLoup’s gradual psychological disintegration is a highlight, handled with some real insight into the effect of failure on arrogance"
- "A very promising series opener featuring a young heroine and her pals that should win fans."

Readers' Favorite (excerpt) full review
- "...Adam Dreece adroitly weaves fragments of classic fairy tales into his original and exciting steampunk fantasy story. Tee and her fellow Yellow Hoods are marvelous characters and I enjoyed seeing how the three of them work together to evade the clutches of the dastardly LeLoup. Dreece's nod to steampunk is fantastic and filled with odd and exciting devices that delighted this reader as much as they do Tee and her friends."

About the Author

Adam Dreece kicked off his indie author career with his best-selling steampunk meets fairy tale series, The Yellow Hoods, which struck a chord with kids 9-15 and adults. After four books in the series, the former software architect put out two more young adult books, the post-apocalyptic fantasy book The Wizard Killer – Season One, and then his science fiction novel, The Man of Cloud 9. The first two novels in The Yellow Hoods series, as well as The Wizard Killer, have been finalists for Book of the Year awards from the Independent Author’s Network.

When he’s not working on his next book, Adam can be found giving talks at schools, libraries, associations, as well as comic-con type events like CalgaryExpo and FanExpoCanada on subjects from how to get one’s ideas out and stepping outside of one’s comfort zone, to how to give a successful book signing.

Along the way, Adam has faced many challenges, including working around his Dyslexia (reading and writing disorder), and needing to be ruthless with his time and energy in face of his severe asthma and chronic abdominal scar pain. He’s become an inspiration to some, and a symbol of tenacious hard work to others.

He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with his wife and children. He is an active online mentor at, and is a busy public speaker, panelist, and author in Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
