About the Author

Maurice Gee is one of New Zealand's finest writers, with nearly fifty books for adults and young adults and a number of prestigious awards to his credit. A former teacher, Maurice was first inspired to write after reading Charles Dickens as a teenager. However, it was not until he reached his mid-40s that he became a full-time writer. Gee, who was named an Arts Foundation of New Zealand Icon Artist as one of the ten greatest living artists in New Zealand, came out of retirement to write the Salt Trilogy. He lives in Nelson, on New Zealand's South Island.

Reviews

"While Gool is nominally the second book in the trilogy...it stands on its own nicely. Gee has done a terrific job of describing his world, giving life to his heroines and heroes while making their foes truly frightening. This is fine speculative fiction, accessible to readers of horror, fantasy, or science fiction and worth a look by anyone who enjoys adventure that doesn't trod the usual paths."--School Library Journal
"Gee plays with the ideas of myth and truth...These are sophisticated and violent novels. The fact that they are thought-provoking and reflect some of the grittier truths about the nature of survival and society is a bonus. Gool will appeal to boys and girls alike...Recommended."--CM Magazine
"Gee's quick, forceful prose makes this read almost as an extended poem of action and dialogue...[with] plenty of momentum. Salt and Gool make good choices for kids who want danger, adventure and a quick pace."--The Toronto Star
"This sequel to the fantasy novel Salt is a biological and psychological horror story, and is even scarier than its predecessor...Gee's imagination is as fierce as ever."--The Sunday Herald
"In Gool, the looming apocalypse has taken an almost mythical form...Gee is a master storyteller."--New Zealand Herald
