Praise for Star League 1: Lights, Camera, Action Hero!

Written in a fast-paced, energetic style, "Star League" is an ideal series for hesitant readers, especially boys. It features plenty of intrigue, fight scenes and evil villains, all presented in a slick narrative style, interspersed with Manga-style illustrations that should also appeal to this demographic. "Star League" will add another burst of energy to the "tween" reader field; the titles are sure to be a hit with parents and young readers, and educators will be happy to have another resource to hand.

Natalie Crawford, Bookseller + Publisher

It is all the stuff of popular culture, computer games, anime and movies, but unlike much of the usual spin-off merchandise this has a strong narrative and deliciously unexpected plot. One of the strengths of the writing is its thrilling high-powered action, which is always going off in an unexpected direction. Such fun. Zac Power readers, here’s a great new series to try.
