Mitch Kuiper works for the Council pulling out asparagus grass – a tough spiky weed that conquers entire suburbs. Mitch’s life is entirely normal until he meets two quirky young women with incredible secrets and, as Mitch is drawn into their worlds, finds his head exploding with the perils before him – a galactic war, in which he has just become a key player.
'Kurt Vonnegut meets Jason Bourne. Another imaginative Adrian Deans rollercoaster ride on an extra-terrestrial scale’
Peter Goldsworthy AM, Author of ‘Maestro’ and ‘Honk If You Are Jesus’
Asparagus Grass catapults everyday life into an interstellar spectacle. With a beer-loving gardener as our unlikely hero, this tale weaves cosmic chaos with terrestrial toil, resulting in a narrative as gripping as it is hilarious.
Carola Schmidt (Reviewer and award-winning author)
If you enjoy science fiction and unconventional narratives, you'll find this book to be a delightful and captivating read.
Heather (BookGirlBrown Reviews)
A great binge read for someone who likes sci fi romance with a little conspiracy.
Jmortiff (The Book & Beverage Review – Youtube & Goodreads reviewer)
Good satire is rare these days so it’s a joy to find a book dealing with important social and political issues without ramming its preachy message down your throat. Add a cracking plot and you have a winner.
When Imre falls during the Dance of a 1000 Steps, she is called before the Regent, certain she is to be punished. But the Regent is more than he seems, and on a planet that moves to the ticking of a clock, they must work together to save their world.
'This book consumed me. I don't think I've ever read a proper steampunk novel before now, just seen the aesthetic and the stereotypes. I didn't find any of these things in The White Pavilion. Instead, I found a stunning world bursting at the seams with lore, a large but well-balanced and vibrant cast of characters, and a story so intricate and perfectly paced it's almost as if it was propelled by finely tuned gears instead of the human mind.'
'The White Pavilion is elevated into sheer brilliance because of its memorable protagonist and world building.'
Julie's A Bookworm
'The White Pavilion might just be one of my all-time favourite book... It is so unbelievably, perfectly, undeniably human, it makes me want to cry.'
The Writing Werewolf
'A fresh take on sci-fi fantasy with impeccable pacing'

Ginger Book Lover
'There's political intrigue, espionage, robots ... and dancing'

'This keeps the reader guessing and I found that I was trying to play detective as I read'
'5 stars. Really enjoyed the mystery of the murder and the way the story was told going backwards and forwards between the past, the present, and the future.'
With the Greater Gorgone defeated, Kazari has survived her first ordeal as a Hunter. As the only one who can sense when a gorgone – a demon from Beyond – is near, she is destined to become one of the Lady’s greatest weapons in the coming battle – if she can overcome her own fears. But the threat to Albatar is rising – and evil lurks in surprising places.
'Dark Days is the 2nd in The Albatar Chronicles - following on from Amethyst Pledge - by Aussie author Leonie Rogers and it was exceptional.'
Brenda Goodreads Librarian
'... both wonderful and frightening, I became so invested in the characters of Kaz and Sendar that I didn't want anything awful to happen to them!'
'I love the way this series is developing ...'
'A fabulous start to a new series, exciting, un-put-downable, and with a very interesting plot and characters'
