WHEN KILLERS CRY
- I won't go into any details but this is not your typical boy/girl romance story. This story has a LOT of heart to it.- Goodreads
- I loved this book. This book was packed with action and suspense with a little bit of romance thrown in for good measure. I would definitely recommend this book to any science fiction fans that like their books with a strong heroine. - 5 stars Justin and Katie Schauer
- It is so refreshing to find a book that departs from the current trend for vampires, werewolves, witches and wizards in young adult fiction. What I loved most about this book is it's `heart', although it is very adventurous and set on alien planets (very exciting, and page turning, what an imagination Katy Krump has), it is really about a girl finding out who she is. She meets fearsome challenges, the most dreadful being when she has face her selfish instincts and consider other people : does she fly to safety or stay and help the people who need her? - Mehitabel - Amazon
- Second books are always eagerly anticipated, as they reintroduce you to characters you fell in love with from their first outing. When I first heard of this Sci-Fi sequel, I was itching to get my hands on it, as Blue Dust: Forbidden was so original and so well written, I just knew that Blue Dust: Destiny would blow me away. After finally finishing it, I was unprepared at how fantastic this book was going to be. Dan Thompson, Author Here lies Love.
- Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, I wasn't sure what to expect with the sequel. Katy Krump has, however, surpassed herself - I couldn't put it down! All the separate threads of the story have been drawn together with great skill, to make a tightly written and cohesive structure. Characters have been fleshed out and develop never lets up for a minute as the story continues and the author's description of the colours and creatures of the alien world paints a picture which the reader cannot help but be drawn into.

- Great continuation of a Fantastic series. Dayla FM - Amazon USA, Blogger
- Having read and enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy, I was wondering what Katy Krump would pull out of the hat for the final book, but she has delivered! The book is action-packed every step of the way and builds to a thrilling climax, tidying up all the loose ends along the way. I particularly liked the way some of the other characters were drawn in greater detail, rather than just concentrating on Qea as the main character - this seemed to give them independent lives and voices, not always in agreement with that of Qea and therefore adding further interest. The ongoing relationship between Qea and Adam was an interesting question hanging in the balance and this was also satisfactorily resolved in the final chapter of the trilogy. An excellent conclusion and well worth a read, particularly for YA sci-fi lovers. Bookworm, Amazon, UK
- Left craving for more at the end of Blue Dust: Destiny, I devoured this last instalment in Katy Krump’s young adult sci-fi trilogy. Adventure, love, war and revenge all culminate into a kick-ass conclusion that will satisfy any fan. Just when we saw Qea mature into a warrior and strong female protagonist in the previous book, we see a more logical, emotional and heartfelt lead who truly becomes a woman. Realism is hard to come-by in the genre, but the author does this by creating strong bonds between her memorable characters. Blue Dust: Insurrection is perhaps darker than its predecessors, but delightfully so – Katy Krump has an ingeniously creative mind and she puts it to great use here with imaginative descriptions of subterranean water people, advanced technology implants and deliciously dark ways of generating electricity – you’ll be shocked and amazed and addicted!

WHEN KILLERS CRY
- This is a fast-paced,action packed thriller set in the uncertain times of pre-liberation South Africa. The feeling of not knowing who to trust pervades the storyline and wondering how it was all going to end kept me reading to the very end. A good and absorbing read. Bookworm, Amazon
- A fascinating read for this reader who knew only a few minor basics about apartheid-times South Africa. A series of murders, mutilations and lack of police interest in the bodies get HannaH Smith to start investigations herself. The country is experiencing ANC terrorism and also some (sadly suppressed) sympathy for the peaceful ANC movement. While the detective story uncovers some surprises and big danger the author relays a lot of interesting information and insights into the time (not least in a very interesting afterword).
A thriller with a fascinating setting. Christoph Fisher, Author
- As a young adult growing up in the era that the book is set in, I found it a riveting and well written story that was very easy to relate to. For those outside South Africa who never experienced that tumultuous time first hand it will help to understand the psyche of protagonists on both sides, and the many innocents caught inbetween.
