Care to leave a review?

Your feedback means a great deal to me. Without any reviews, my series wouldn’t still be going. See below for everyone who has submitted a comment/review via this site and feel free to add your own. For those that do so, I will REPLY TO EVERY SINGLE ONE on this page, so check back to see when your review/comment is posted. 

Lastly, thanks for taking the time to also copy your review to Amazon, doing so really does help my series get shown more, which means that more children, parents and teachers can find them. Which means this series can keep on going and going.


Oh, and if you haven’t already read Smugglers Cove, the first book in the series, you can download it for FREE on Amazon if you have KIndle Unlimited

Mystery of Smugglers Cove: All you books are soo good. I don’t even know why have to to choose one particular book. I keep reading them over and over again. When I started reading them I just could not put my Kindle down. Please keep me updated on your latest books. They are too good. Thank you

Reply From Paul: Hello, Krisha. I’m very happy that you like all of my books. I don’t know how many more will be released, but if you sign up to my newsletter, you’ll always be the first to find out what I have in store. I’m glad my books are so good that you read them more than once, that’s the plan ๐Ÿ™‚



Mystery of the Runaway King: Very good book. Just begun reading this series and love it. Can’t wait to find out the identity of black mask in remaining books !!!

Reply From Paul: Hello, The Man In The Black Mask. I wonder what part of the mystery series you like the most ๐Ÿ˜‰  Only kidding, I see you are a fan of the Golden Dragons. Well, it’s not going to be long until the black mask is revealed, I just hope you continue reading after that happens. 



Mystery of the Fake President: Book was very good. One of the best in the series. I would rate it fourth after golden dragons and runaway king which would be first because of the man in black and crown jewels. Double agent looks very exciting!! Cant wait to read it. The best mystery book!

Reply From Paul: Hello,  ABCD, nice to meet another fan. I just released Double Agent, I hope you enjoyed it as much as Fake President. I still have a few stories planned around the Golden Dragons saga but, since not everyone may like them, I’ll write a few other books in the meantime, so hopefully you’ll stick around.



Mystery of Adventure Island: This is the best fiction book ever! Please continue this series.

Reply From Paul: Hello, Harshit. I’m glad you think this is the best fiction book ever. That’s a big award to give. Hopefully the series doesn’t go downhill from this book ๐Ÿ™‚  I currently have a number of books on pre-order on Amazon, all which will be free on Kindle Unlimited. As long as I have people like you who enjoy’s my series, I’ll keep on writing. So, thanks.

Mystery of the Golden Dragons: Best author. Incredible series. Once I got it I couldnโ€™t put it (kindle) down. Have been following this series for the past 5 years. Mystery of the Golden Dragons was obviously the best book in the series. Though Crocodile Island was also good. Old characters returned which added to the suspense of the story. The book had lots of suspense and twists. Canโ€™t wait for haunted lighthouse and blizzard peak. I also canโ€™t wait to find out the identity of the masked man from Runaway King.

Reply From Paul: Hello, Anonymous. I’m glad to have met you and to know that you’ve been a fan of mine for 5 years. Hopefully, you’ll still be a fan 5 years from now ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve got some interesting stories planned involving returning characters, I just need to know how to type faster so I can write everything down fast ๐Ÿ™‚

Mystery of the Secret Lake: The book was amazing! I especially like the detail and suspense. Read the other books too!

Reply From Paul: Hello, Anston. Glad you liked my latest novel, and that you enjoyed the rest of the series. Keep a lookout for Book 14 in the mystery series early next year, The Mystery of Crocodile Island.

Mystery of Hidden Valley: I really like this book and the other two (book 1 and 2) and I’m looking forward the read the rest! I have already bought them!

Reply From Paul: Hello, Charlie. I’m happy you have enjoyed the first two books in the series and I hope you enjoy the other books in the mystery series as much as you enjoyed the first two. Cheers!

Mystery of Smugglers Cove: Ok. This was probably Paul’s most important book and I guess his goal was to make sure it hooked on the readers so they would read the following books in the series. And that happened! When I first read it I was so excited to know what happened in the caves so I kept on reading. Amazing! Read this first before you read the others!

Reply From Paul: Hello, Anston. Glad you liked my very first adventure. Yes, the caves were an integral part of this very first adventure.
