“Tony is an absolute champion with endless talent! NEVER fails to impress no matter what he does!! If he has a dream, you best believe he’s gonna put his heart and mind into it…”


“Wow… this book is worth the read. To be honest I’m not a consistent fan of this genre yet the author has breathed some serious light, shadow and colour into these characters. Loads of themes that are tightly interwoven throughout the story… abuse of power, the rough road to compromise, learning to own your gifts… for me, all this led to a very engaging story and an easy read. If this is the first novel for Tony Del Degan then I so look forward to seeing where this takes him.”


“True fans of fantasy, hop on this book for the time of your life. Tony Del Degan’s “Plight of Steel”… [is] the future of novels as we know them. Setting up high standards for young adult authors to come. Good things coming for you in the future, Tony Del Degan, keep at it. YYC is being put on the map by young adult authors like you.”


“If you like sci-fi this is a must read novel. The world building is amazing but the roots of the story and characters have a lasting impact.”


“Amazing read! I would totally recommend this book. It’s thrilling and exciting. Most of all it is important to support young authors like Tony.”


“Check it out for the weirdness, stay for the talking bird.”
